Thriving Practice Academy with Gary Takacs

Are you living the life you want?

  • Struggling with an overhead that’s much too high?
  • Patients not accepting treatment recommendations?
  • High cancellation or no show rate?
  • Feeling restricted by the limitations caused by PPO plans?
  • Team members need to be inspired with a vision or purpose?
  • Unable to maintain a positive work-life balance?

You deserve to live a life that brings you personal, professional, and financial satisfaction

Gary understands from personal experience, what it means to be restricted by insurance limitations, work 70-80 hours a week and be unable to invest in the latest dental technologies.

When he bought his practice Life Smiles in the year 2007, it was a practice filled with PPO plans, no effective marketing strategy and burdened with an overhead of 80%!

However, within a few years, he was able to convert this half a million dollar practice into a very successful dental practice that is currently at the top 1/4th of 1% in the US.

Gary knows from personal experience and proven results seen in practices across the country, that investing time and resources into successfully establishing the systems and concepts that have produced exceptional results in his own practice will produce the same for you.

His passion has always been to help dentists achieve the same personal, professional, and financial satisfaction that he and his coaching clients have achieved.
  • Over 39 years of experience coaching dentists and transforming practices.
  • Coached over 2200 dental practices around the world.
  • Instructor on 'Business of Dentistry' at The Pankey Institute (Key Biscayne, FL)
"Working with Gary is a rare opportunity to have a seasoned pro at your side in all areas of dental practice management.

Gary certainly knows his stuff." - Bill Williams, DMD (Author of "The $10,000 A Day Dentist: 50 Ways to Create a Highly Successful Practice")
