As a Dentist,

You simply can’t afford “not” to:

  • Love Life!
  • Love Dentistry!
  • Love those around you!
  • Leave a Legacy behind!

Remember that day, when you've just graduated dental school?

We all had a dream about owning a successful practice someday…

Let’s Bring That Dream Back Into Focus!

Dream big with the end in mind!

Don’t just build a "good" practice...

"Build a Thriving and Profitable Practice!"

We get it!
Developing a thriving practice can be overwhelming and frustrating. Gary knows this first-hand, owning a practice of his own, and having coached over 2200+ practices...

But it shouldn’t have to be so challenging!

That’s why Gary came up with the Personalized Coaching Support Program!

Gary loves helping dentists grow their ideal dental practice!

Reduce Your Insurance Dependency & Attract Ideal Patients Who Know, Like & Trust You For The Care You Provide!

The first three steps to successfully dropping PPO Plans at your dental practice require you to assess how many patients, on average, are on your insurance plans and then attract ideal patients to replace them as you go out of network.

At Life Smiles, we spent less than 1.4% of our annual revenue on marketing to consistently attract over 90+ new patients through a Done-For-You Digital Marketing solution through Ekwa Marketing.

Ekwa has a special team that understands exactly how to work with you to help you reduce insurance dependence at your practice!
