Welcome to the #1 site for Startup Practice resources in dentistry.

This is where associate dentists like you find the best publications to begin your startup journey. 

A startup can create the best version of your future career, taking you from years of dreaming into a reality in practice ownership you deserve.
Though a startup is not right for everyone, the freedom, the control and the opportunities will change your entire life.

Done properly, your startup can be profitable without the typical risks. Your reputation, your pride of ownership and even your community impact can be established even before you open the doors for business – like the doctors who are featured in the news, weeks before their opening day.

But where do you even begin?
The costs are high. The risks are real. The timelines are complex. And the stories of doctors who struggle for years are far too common.

And that is why our team created this site.

Our hope is to serve all of dentistry – and the future of private practice ownership – through these free resources. Should you desire to get customized, 1-on-1 guidance from the leading startup consulting firm in dentistry, we can show you our application process. We get hundreds of applicants per year and have limited openings each month.

For now, save this page. You will surely come back, spending hours studying the resources.

Use these free resources and learn how other doctors create startups that define their entire career, right here on this site.

To your future success,

Stephen Trutter
CEO, Ideal Practices
