About Us

Accelerating your dental business through your people

Our Vision

RELEASING UNTAPPED VALUE

We have spoken to 100s of dental business owners and know It's challenging running a business, delivering clinical excellence AND leading an engaged, motivated team.

Many have lost perspective as to how to release the mountain of untapped value they are standing on.

Dental business owners work incredibly hard and often feel the gains are not what they deserve. Add to that isolation and they are left wondering whether 'it's all worth it?'

We don't want this to be you.

SUCCESS BASED UPON HAPPINESS & PROFIT

We want you and your team to spend less time struggling. The effects are far reaching - as the ripples of less stress and greater happiness are felt in personal lives and beyond, this in turn creates the capacity for people to deliver more value in the world.

Our vision is that with our help dental business leaders will measure their success based upon the happiness of themselves and their team, as well as the profit they create.

“You are standing on a mountain of value. Your people.
They create the atmosphere for productivity, amazing service and a happy environment.
We help you to tap into that value, accelerating results.”
Lyn Paxman, Co-Founder and Director

Our Story

Our mission is to support you in accelerating your business success through your people. Reducing stress for you, increasing happiness and motivation within your team and increasing profit for the business.

CHANGING THE CULTURE OF DENTISTRY

The BDA, Larbie et al report in 2017 about mental health and wellbeing raised concerns about the culture within dentistry and the pressure this creates.

Combined we have over 24 years experience working within dentistry. We've seen the effects of stress and unhappiness.

We want to change this.

TEAM ENGAGEMENT & MAXIMUM VALUE

We are a unique combination of an experienced facilitator who skilfully engages your team. And a practised operator who understands the challenges of running a dental business, as well as how to ensure maximum value is achieved.

With our help it is possible to reduce stress, find happiness and create the value in your business you deserve.
