Free webinar will help build your practice’s profit & exit value

Published 19th August 2021 by admin.

Dental business mentors Andy McDougall and Anne-Marie Houston to speak to free webinar

Hoping to double your practice’s net profits in three years? Looking to maximise its sale value in Ireland? Click here to join a FREE 1-hour webinar on Wednesday September 15 at 7.00 pm to find out how.

Hosted by Anne O’Donnell, clinical director of Mullingar Dental Centre in Co. Westmeath, and introducing leading dental business mentors, Andy McDougall and Anne-Marie Houston from Spot On Business Planning to Irish practice owners and principals, the Profitability in practice webinar will:

  • demonstrate some of the techniques used to transform profitability
  • illustrate how you can make more informed decisions
  • convince you that better decisions lead to more profitable outcomes
  • introduce you to decision making accounting (DMA)

Portman’s mergers and acquisitions director Gary Chapman will then introduce Portman Dental Care and highlight the buoyancy of the Irish marketplace from a buying and selling perspective.

Double your net profit within three years

Over a decade ago Spot On Business Planning (SOBP) engineered a methodical, logical, engaging and effective methodology that sought to double practice net profitability within three years. Ever since, dental business owners have benefitted on two fronts: from increased profits whilst owning their practice and maximising their exit value on sale.

Practice owners and principals who have taken advantage of SOBP’s unique methodology and expertise have found the experience of working in partnership ‘the best business decision they have ever made’. The longevity of these relationships, spanning many years, reflects the value derived from the partnership.

High standards are a shared value of SOBP and Portman, and as SOBP clients tend to have well-run, profitable practices, they are a favoured acquisition of Portman.

The speakers

Anne O’Donnell from Mullingar Dental Centre

Anne O’Donnell

Clinical Director Mullingar Dental Centre

Anne qualified from Cork Dental School in 1984. She has worked in almost every aspect of dentistry: associate positions in a UK NHS practice and in Ireland, and principal roles in established practices and squats. She has attended many courses and encouraged her team members to gain further qualifications and step up into leadership roles. In 2008 Anne sold her practices to the Smiles Group and became clinical director, serving as a non-executive director on the Board. Aware of a gap in the market for dental leadership & management training, Anne’s search led her to Spot On Business Planning (SOBP) and to a company delivering support to dental practice owners and preparing an online portal of business & management resources/training for the whole team. If Anne could speak to her younger self, she would be recommending SOBP business services. As she can’t, she will be introducing and recommending their services in this webinar.

 

Andy McDougall dental business mentor from Spot On Business Planning

Andy McDougall

Spot On Business Planning

Andy has been interpreting and using numbers to transform business performance since his early days as a management accountant in the planning and analysis function of blue-chip Grand Metropolitan (Diageo) over 40 years ago.

Introduced to the dental sector more than a decade ago, Andy immediately identified an industry starved of commercial competence and dental practice owners devoid of business knowhow.

Andy formed Spot On Business Planning (SOBP) with a mission to transform underperforming practices and to help those looking to maximise profitability and their exit value. Using tailored financial models developed specifically for the dental industry, Andy mentors dental practice owners to make the right strategic decisions, and the talented Spot On team works alongside practice teams to implement changes that double net profits within three years.

 

Anne-Marie Houston dental business mentor from Spot On Business Planning

Anne-Marie Houston

Spot On Business Planning

Anne-Marie was introduced to Spot On Business Planning as a client whilst managing her husband’s dental practice. The techniques she learned and implemented working with Andy transformed the practice’s performance and motivated Anne-Marie to join Spot On and share the success that she and her husband achieved, with other dental business owners.

Today, many years on and working alongside Andy, she is a key member of the Spot On Business Planning team. Her breadth of skill, knowledge and experience have been amassed over a career spanning corporate IT training and senior business management. Anne-Marie is instrumental in driving client profitability and delivering an exceptional service.

 

Gary Chapman from Portman Dental Care

Gary Chapman

Director of Mergers & Acquisitions UK & Europe, Portman Dental Care

Portman boasts 162 practices in the UK and Ireland, and sister groups in Norway and Belgium. The differentiating factor is their ‘Buy & Build’ approach. Unlike other corporates who focus on ‘Buy to Sell’, Portman’s ambition is to be the best privately focused dental group in the world, not the biggest. Portman strives to partner practices that echo their high clinical and ethical standards.

Gary has been part of Portman since December 2009 when the business was in its infancy with only 2 practices. A dental technician by trade, Gary has 41 years in dentistry, 18 in corporate dentistry. Gary, not a money man, is uniquely positioned to understand the nuances of a practice, ultimately the people within it. Portman recognises people as the heartbeat of its business.

Ireland’s reputation for providing stellar dentistry has earned Portman’s recognition and respect. Working with the cream of Irish dentistry, as in other countries, will provide a win-win that Portman looks forward to sharing.
