The best way to create your future is to plan it

Our approach

You will never look at your dental business in the same way again. We pull your dental business apart analytically using proven business techniques to uncover the profits locked away and unseen from the surface.

You will come to learn about the quarters and halves and the compound effect. Similarly you will learn the power of order and sequence. Brilliant results don’t just show up by chance. In essence there is a manual for business success and if you’re prepared to follow the recipe, you’ll get the cake.

Known within the industry as a dental business coach or consultant, Andy McDougall is more a dental business mentor and partner.

Unlike many business coaches and business consultants, who give advice then send you on your way to follow the advice alone, our approach is to take the journey with you as your dental business partner. Our aim is to radically change your results AND develop you and your team along the way. We want to change the way you think about your dental business, ensuring you develop the discipline to work on it as well as in it.

Your business, strategy and aspirations are unique, which is why we do not have a ‘one size fits all’ approach. We will determine a system for running your dental business year after year – allowing you to double your net profit every three years.

“The striking difference lies in the fact that Andy gets right into the business with us and commits to staying until the changes are fully realised.”

Business planning is essential

“There are lots of consultants in the industry but with Andy and his team you don’t get any bulls**t.”
Matt Lamb, Glendair Dental Practice

The secret of getting ahead is getting started

Doing the same thing and expecting a different result is a definition of madness - without change the result won’t change. We will teach you how to breathe new life into your business and take it to the next level.

Everything we do is based on the four strategic questions central to business planning. Determining the answers starts with an in-depth analysis of your current situation, and the strengths and weaknesses of your existing operation. What follows is a discussion and assessment of our medium and long-term objectives (3-year planning horizon). We will meticulously plan our approach and put in checks and balances (KPIs) to keep score along the way.

At the end of the journey what can I expect?
