After 30 years of dentistry and having had some bad consulting experiences that left a bad taste in my mouth, I decided to have an assessment and allow Transitions Group to look at my practice. The decision that I made to have Transitions work with my practice actually put a smile on my face. The coaching team created a strategic plan to support myself and the team with our goals. After some incredible coaching sessions, there was a very different “air” in the office. There was no longer a “Sword of Damocles” hanging over the team’s head.
There was a great sense of freedom that I hadn’t had for a long time and I wished that I had done this years ago. The practice had an overall increase of 48% from where we started. It was well worth my investment. My team now has the leader that they need and the practice provides consistent patient care.

Dr. Brian Smith was introduced to the Transitions team by our Chief Visionary Officer, Lisa Philp, at the University of Toronto Dental Program. In 2006, Dr. Smith purchased Burnham Dental and wanted the practice to reach it’s full potential. Dr. Smith’s goals:
- Assess the fair value of the practice
- Identify the potential and future earnings of the practice
- Organize the ownership transfer
- Set up the proper systems for his team
The Transitions coaches refined roles, implemented systems and expanded the hygiene program. In 2012, Transitions completed an updated practice assessment. Following that, his goals were to build a new office, find the ideal associate for the practice, work four days per week, consider expanding hours, and implement new private check-out stations. Transitions executed a plan to meet his goals, resulting in a beautiful new, modern office. They achieved a 13% increase in active patients. All of his short and long term goals were met.

My journey with Transitions Group started in October 2011, as I ventured on the path of opening a new practice. My local Benco representative recommended that I meet with someone from Transitions as I knew the daily running of a practice but had never been “the boss”.
The team of coaches at Transitions formulated a brand new coaching module for my “not so traditional” start-up practice. I learned to create a cohesive team that I can properly lead. It was nice having a coach with me almost 24/7 as I ventured through this unchartered personal territory. During my first three months of being open I obtained 396 active patients who are continually referring friends and colleagues.
As each day passes and I continue to smile on my way to work, I must thank Transitions for setting up my team to succeed and my office to flourish.

After being unfocused and disinterested in my practice, I decided to move ahead with a coaching program with Transitions at the recommendation of my Benco TR. As a result of Transition’s program, I am happy to report that the practice is really blossoming! We’ve made some personnel changes that improved the hygiene department and the practice as a whole has dramatically improved. We have had some of our best “financial months” in 3 years, which is a huge pressure reliever. Most importantly I am more engaged, involved and happy with the practice since I set up shop over 25 years ago!
I am a tremendous fan of what you have done for us, and there is plenty more to do!

Dr. Mark Olivito & Dr. Jillian Faraci are the dentists of Olivito Dentistry Professional Corporation. The office has over 3400 active patients, and strives to treat those patients with the utmost respect and provide the highest quality of clinical care. Our coaches started working closely with Olivito Dentistry in order to shift their team momentum into high gear. Since then, the air in the office has changed tremendously, and is now the “best it has ever been”. One of our most popular programs; “The Communication Toolbelt” has brought their team to new heights.
Their hygiene department has been a focus, resulting in a 32% increase in hygiene production per hour. We look forward to continuing the partnership with Olivito Dentistry Professional Corporation, and, together, achieving their goals as a team.

Dr. Anil Patel, owner of North Care Dental Clinic, wanted to transform his dental practice from good to great! Dr. Patel’s goals for his practice were to have:
- A well-organized office with adequate systems
- A highly focused team that provides quality work
- A clear understanding of the requirements for industry standards
Working alongside the Transitions Group coaches, concentrated effort went into providing Dr. Patel’s team with both a productive and enjoyable work environment. They have now become a united front sharing common goals which they continue to meet or surpass. After experiencing both our Synergistic Team Coaching and Signature Program, North Care Dental Clinic has achieved both their short and longterm goals. Dr. Patel received a sizable return on investment of a 10% increase every 18 months, as well as a 30% increase in case acceptance.

What Our Clients Say
Every one of our team came to both days - WOW!! We thoroughly enjoyed Lori, who really motivated us during (and after) the seminar. We are getting together the communication board and trying to work huddles into the schedule. Everyone is still really excited about it and also the fact that it continues for the next year. John and I are too. Very happy we are involved in this. Thanks.
We have worked with Lisa Philp to deliver educational programs to our members for a few years now. Her contribution at each of our seminars has been outstanding and the evaluations always reflect that. She’s such a charismatic, knowledgeable and humorous speaker! It is a pleasure to work with Lisa and her staff, who are always keen to help and respond to our demands.
It has been a great week since Lori was here to begin the coaching. Lori was a ball of energy for us and it was a great start to my journey here with IQ. I will speak for our team and say it was eye opening, uncomfortable at times, and insightful. It pushed most out of their comfort zones and revealed some personality traits we may not have understood as early on as this allowed. We have had some quiet "storming" but am so proud to say I saw some of your techniques used to resolve the issue. We are excited about the future for IQ!
Just wanted to say thank you Linda for arranging the Leadership Coaching. It was a great experience and I look forward to being able to spend some time with you in October. Thank you, Lori, as well. Your coaching style keeps us intrigued and motivated. Yesterday one of our assignments was to write our own vision for ourselves as the leaders. I look forward to working towards my own personal vision alongside the team vision. I'm very proud of my vision and writing it down on paper gave me that ah-ha moment yesterday. It's amazing how 3 lines can change your outlook.
Program was amazing. The response to Lisa Philp was over the top. She held her audience.
Completely flawless; Lisa’s program was relevant and fun. The doctors were both engaged and laughing. We would love to have her back.
