Executive Dental Team Coach & Consultant,
Key Business Strategist and Owner
My area of ‘specialty’ is to develop customized solutions and approaches to challenges… however BIG or small.
DDS Consulting Plus does not advocate that clients will benefit from ‘preconceived solutions’ or ‘cookie cutter’ systems.
I help ‘UNLOCK’ the TRUE POTENTIAL of practices and all of their team members!
Which ‘areas’ of your practice would BENEFIT from an
‘objective’ team member?…also known as your ‘COACH’!
Overall production not increasing enough on an annual basis?
Annual production has flat-lined over the years? Even worse, decreasing annually?
Is your marketing helping, hurting, or making no difference?
Your team doesn’t understand or buy into the difference between Internal and External Marketing?
Team / Culture
Team not engaged or motivated to excel and change?
High stress levels
Team is ‘ok’, going to work is ‘ok’… status Quo? Would love to look forward to work?
Schedule is controlling you?
Too busy? Can’t breathe?
Schedule is full, yet not productive?
Too many short notice cancellations?
Your purchased technology is collecting dust? Fear of unknown?
Case acceptance not ideal despite the technology in use?
New / Patients
NP flow low? Not enough patient ‘referrals’? Team not asking for ‘referrals’?
NP flow acceptable, yet losing too many existing patients?
Profit & Loss
High overhead? Don’t have routine monitors?
Certain ‘line itmes’ could be better… actually exist?
Accountability & Excuses
Overwhelmed and don’t know where to start?
‘Taken aback’ at times on how to handle situations? Always an ‘excuse’ as to why not?
Even “Successful” Practices benefit from “tweaking and enhancing”
what is already working every now and again.
Coaching and Consulting is not only for ‘out of control’ practices.
Actually more often than not, it is the successful practice that reaches out for objective” help.
They realize that ‘adding dimensions’ is the key to propelling performance excellence.
It is important to note, I utilize the term “Successful” lightly as everyone has a different definition of “success” and what it looks like.
Tired of not knowing who all the top advisors are that can help you successfully deal with all facets of ‘OWNING’, ‘STARTING UP’ or ‘SELLING’ a dental practice?
YOUR SEARCH IS OVER!
I will make sure that the correct individuals are brought together and
I will coordinate, orchestrate and identify areas of your practice that would benefit from either coaching, consulting or other ‘services’.
We are more of a united front and strive to reach the same office goals.
The coaching process with Laurie has been very helpful, always informative, very motivating.
Great pick me up with cheerful and positive attitude.
Keep up your great and hard work, it is greatly appreciated.
The sessions, coach calls and in-office seminars have changed our team in ways
I never dreamt possible. Not only is the atmosphere, team spirit and patient experience better,
it has directly affected our bottom line. After being coached by Laurie for just over 1 yr,
our overall production has increased by 35%!
I would recommend Laurie Slater to anyone who wants to go
from ordinary to extraordinary!"
All consultants we have worked with have similar systems for monitoring the practice
performance to produce predictable and consistent outcomes.
This experience with Laurie as our coach has been different from other consultants in the way
the “coach” helps us to keep the “wheels from falling off” these systems.
She keeps us “on track”. Laurie does it in such a way that the staff
feels they are part of the process and they become committed to the systems,
not threatened by them.
implemented protocols that actually stick and has helped us follow through.
Brought COE’s back and they are the best. Patient love them and so do we.

with patients and with my co-workers

The main difference in this experience is the coaching.

I have never met a coach like you before.
Your ability to support me and my team is very powerful.
You are the first person that has been accepted and respected by my entire team.

As a team, we set personal,
professional and financial goals and I must tell you how proud I am of myself and the team

(at the time they seemed so far away).
Of course, I must mention that you had a lot to do with it.
You have been patient, never pressure me but motivate me.
You’ve taught me to monitor myself and IT HELPS!
I can honestly say that I have grown as a person in all aspects especially the way
I analyze challenges which are now “opportunities to make things better”.

THANKYOU SO VERY MUCH LAURIE!
Our dental team has been involved in seminars about systems,
goal setting exercises, communications and wealth management.
Financially, we have seen a substantial increase in production
that has provided bonuses that we all share.
Our coach Laurie has been there with us every step of the way.
We have weekly team meetings and a monthly coaching meeting .
Laurie also makes herself available to all team members whenever needed.
Laurie has given us tools to incorporate " extraordinary practice,
extraordinary life" into our professional and personal lives.
We have learned we CAN make a difference.
Wow!! Quite a question! Laurie has helped so much.
She has given me by far more vision for the career that I have chosen.
After many jobs and many employers over my 27½ years as a Dental Hygienist,
the impact Laurie has had on my life has been incredible.
The principles, the systems, the quotes, and on and on and on have changed the way I think,
the way I work, and the way I relate with those around me.
Thank you for all your input and impact on my life.
She has brought me to an entire new level of thinking in dentistry.
- Her ideas and suggestions really do work.
- Our team has come along way together.
Laurie is full of energy and takes great pride in her profession.
- I would recommend Laurie Slater to anyone.
have allowed my goals and my thinking to make a complete shift.
I thank Laurie for making me believe that “good” isn’t enough,
and I truly wish to strive for “extraordinary”.
Laurie’s ability to motivate and
inspire have been totally effective and infectious.
She has helped increase our production by over 45% in less than 2 yrs!
We as a team are honored to have her as a coach and a mentor.
putting reliable systems in place to help us run our practice.
She has enabled us to really develop as a team creating and sharing our goals
and reminding us of who we need to be each day.
Most importantly, Laurie has helped us to commit to our patients
and ourselves by encouraging us to focus on our Vision.
Our experience with her is showing us that
we WILL continue to be more successful than we already were.
Her recommendations for positive change were excellent and easy to implement.
The coaching she provided has really helped our administrative team to work in a more supportive,
organized and efficient manner and to deliver
a higher level of customer service to our patients.
I would highly recommend Laurie Slater to anyone seeking to take
their success to a higher level.
That said, my practice was in need of changes in order to keep up with today’s tougher economy.
For the past few years, we noticed that our practice was stagnant and not growing.
We tried a variety of different ideas but nothing really made an impact.
It was then that I sought out help from a dental consultant.
Laurie Slater. Without a doubt, Laurie has made some radical changes to our office with positive results.
She has guided our staff towards achieving all we can and more.
She has a passion for teamwork and it shows.
We look forward to working more with Laurie
and seeing what new heights our practice can soar to.
We have a “good” practice. However, I always felt it could be better.
I would research business websites and try to new ideas but didn’t have the knowledge or confidence to truly incorporate
these ideas so they would be accepted and permanently integrate into our office environment.
Laurie has given us the tools and practical applications to make these dreams become reality.
She has been able to bring to our attention fears and limiting beliefs and help change them into empowering beliefs.
“We can do it!!” Laurie is exceptionally disciplined, devoted and committed to us and our team.
She sincerely wants to help us turn our good practice into a great practice.
When she is with us, I think we are her only clients. Laurie communicates clearly and effectively.
She is a great example of excellence conquering mediocrity.
A true coach inspires you pull your bootstraps up and keep going to be better, not to quit but to be solution driven.
She is always promoting cooperation and inspiring our staff to be a true team.
I know we still have a lot to accomplish and change is sometimes uncomfortable,
but with Laurie as our coach, I know we will achieve success… whatever it takes!
Thanks Laurie for taking us on!!
Since then, her philosophy of excellence and achieving beyond has clearly had
a positive impact on our practice.
Our team is now much more effective and a cohesive unit both professionally and personally.
Practice morale is at an all time high
and as a result of her systematic approach of operation,
our practice production has increased dramatically.
- Her coach calls are especially insightful and allow us to deal with issues immediately and effectively.
- We at Downtown Dental are excited to keep working with Laurie for many more years ahead!
