Your Story

There’s never been a more exciting time to be a dentist. Dentistry is changing at a faster rate, and in a broader scope than ever before. And change brings opportunity. The opportunities for today’s dentists are simply unlimited.

But you have to get out in front of it…and lead that pace of change. Or you’ll get stuck behind with the rest of the pack. Fighting to survive against the negatives of change. You know them all too well. Decreasing insurance reimbursement rates. Increasing competition from corporate dentistry. A growing number of dentists in the marketplace. And a softening consumer demand for services.

Don’t be fooled into thinking these forces are outside of your control. Dentistry is still a great profession, with plenty of profit opportunity to be had. But, to succeed, you must have a solid business model that is supported by a winning marketing strategy.

You need a trusted business advisor to help you navigate the complex world of dental marketing and help you differentiate yourself, and your practice, from the immense and growing level of competition out there. You need a marketing plan to become THE go-to-dentist in your area. And you need this so that you can successfully grow your practice, achieve your professional vision, and build the life of your dreams!

I want you to ask yourself one question….what do you want your career, and your life, to look like?

Now, it’s time to go make that happen!

Kent Sears, MBA – Dental Marketing Practice Growth Consultant

When I entered this industry, I set out to offer a different type of marketing service. One that clearly stands apart from the traditional marketing agency model, and all the negatives that come along with it. One that provides unique and differentiated value. From that goal, I’ve aligned my business model and my services around five core principles:

Custom Solutions

I know every practice is unique. And what it takes to make each practice successful is different. I don’t use cookie-cutter solutions like traditional marketing agencies. The marketing strategies and systems that I put into place, within each practice, are always unique and custom designed for your specific practice.

Results. Not Products.

I am not in the business of selling marketing ‘products’ like a traditional marketing agency. I have no financial incentive to persuade you to pay for yet another new website, or to spend thousands of dollars per month on digital advertising. My only objective is to design and implement the marketing plan that will deliver the results we set out to achieve.

Direct Access

You will always work with me. 100% of the time. No exceptions. Unlike traditional marketing agencies, you won’t be passed off to some recent college graduate with no real-world experience as soon as our work begins. I propose, design, execute, and ensure the success of every single project I take on. My expertise and my work is what you get all of the time.

Flexibility

Dental marketing is an industry plagued with long-term contracts and no guarantees of performance. I don’t believe in long-term contracts. Period. I earn the right to work with my clients month after month after month.

Aligned Incentives

Achievement of your goals is all that matters to me. And my engagements are structured as such. Traditional marketing agencies profit from selling you more and more cookie-cutter products and services (often times outsourced) without any guarantee of results. I only benefit if you benefit. My projects are partnerships. And our incentives are always 100% aligned.

Success Stories

Below are a few examples of the successful results recent clients have had in partnering with me. Please know that every practice, every situation and every project is unique. I’ll always be up front and honest with you in telling you what we can expect in terms of results if we partner together.

Dr. Jeremy Chin

As the owner of a specialty practice, Dr. Jeremy Chin was facing pressure from seemingly all sides. Competitive pressures across the orthodontics industry were leading to lower prices, and thus lower margins, for practices like his.

Dr. Timothy Shen

Dr. Shen and Trinity Family Dentistry is a prime example of why I got into this industry. Before we started working together, Dr. Shen had bounced around from marketing agency to marketing agency.

Dr. Robert Ferrera

Over the past decade, the level of competition in Dr. Ferrera’s area of Tampa had drastically increased. A rising number of dentists moving into the market had made new patient attraction more and more difficult.

Testimonials

Dr. Alan Stern

Ocean Township, NJ

Kent is a master marketer and analyst. He provides insight into dental marketing that we dentists simply have not been made aware of in our training and experience. His perspective is eye-opening.

Dr. Thomas Murphy

New Orleans, LA

Working with Kent has been a great decision for me and it will be for you too! I’ve worked with quite a few famous marketing groups and they do not offer near the level of customization that Kent does. Use him!

Dr. Orrin Mackey

Cottonwood, AZ

Kent presents a clear method to guide you in a marketing plan designed specifically for your practice. It is an invaluable education for the new and experienced practice owner

Dr. Mircea Mitu

Manteca, CA

Kent is very knowledgeable. He delivered a very well structured program with very good implementation strategies. I highly recommend him and his services.

My Why

I’m not originally from the dental industry, and that’s a good thing, because my background in business consulting and marketing strategy allows be to bring a unique perspective and an entirely different approach, with fresh insights, to help dentists grow their business.

I’ve worked around the globe, both in private and public sector, across a multitude of industries, consulting to several successful organizations, and driving marketing strategy directly for leading companies like Microsoft and T-Mobile. But, making huge, multi-billion-dollar companies even bigger isn’t actually all that rewarding. And life’s short. Far too short to not be doing what you love. So, I left the corporate world, joined my wife in her mission to transform the dental industry, and now I help private practice dentists realize their full business potential through more effective marketing, so they will survive and thrive in this increasingly competitive marketplace. And that is something I am truly excited about doing!

In my personal life, my two passions are exploring the world and being with my adorable family.…luckily they travel well! Some of our most memorable moments are right here in these pictures. This is me getting to live my dream life! My professional goal is to support others in living their dream life as well!
