The Dentist Freedom Blueprint Podcast

DentistFreedomBlueprintThis week on Dentist Freedom Blueprint, we focus on how private dentists who want to remain a boutique practice can be successful in the current business environment.

Solo dentists are dealing with rising corporate competition and a reduction in reimbursements from managed care.  Dr. Scott Leune joins us today to talk about leveraging the benefits of corporate efficiencies while thriving in your private practice.

Scott is the CEO of Breakaway Practice, a dental consulting firm that specializes in creating growth for dental practices and creating the efficiencies that increase profits. He built 3 successful startup practices in San Antonio by learning from his mistakes during rapid periods of growth and not being afraid to talk calculated risks. Over the last 4 years, through the Breakaway Affiliate Program, Scott has helped build approximately 80 startup practices nationwide.

Today, Scott shares how private dentists can best position themselves to leverage the opportunities available while competing against corporate dentistry conglomerates. Dentists who will thrive need to understand the trends and develop a plan to operating at maximum efficiency in a polarized industry.
