Welcome to the most detailed, comprehensive, and personalized Dental Practice Ownership CE class available.
If you are an employee dentist who:
-Always wanted to own a dental practice, but aren't sure where to start
-Have a lot of student debt, and would rather not have a HUGE practice loan piled on top of it
-Would like a mentor and support team to help you the whole way and help you avoid mistakes
-Are feeling uncertain about paying a Start-Up or Practice Consultant Tens of Thousands of dollars who claims they will "save you money"
- Ali Aldabe, DDS - Owner of Clairemont Dental
Here are the Five Core Components of the Program
1) The 47 Virtual Ownership Modules: Will guide you from the path of motivated Employee Dentist to being capable and confident for practice ownership by your completion of the program. Whether you're interested in a start-up or seeking to buy a practice - you will find all the tools and knowledge you need.
You will learn all of this through the lens of the Lean Efficiency Practice Building Model made popular by the Practice Biopsy content.
2) Demonstrations and Walkthroughs: Are available as a critical part of the unique step-by-step Hands-On process, to not only teach concepts but show exactly how to implement the refined principles, systems, and methods through examples so you can successfully become an owner.
3) Practice Launch Owners Tools Package: Package tools include office manuals, sample business plans, checklists, supply lists, equipment lists, useful spreadsheets, and system after system to implement in your new office.
4) One-on-One Mentorship Time: Where as with most CE you will never see or hear from the instructor again - with Practice Launch you will have ongoing access to DeAngelo S. Webster, DDS to help guide you. Available by e-mail or chat for your ownership questions, course curriculum questions, and analysis/consultation for your specific circumstances. To serve as support to help you get from Employee to Owner.
5) Peer Mentorship Support Group: You will have access to a private group of other like minded dentists along the same journey you are on. Dentists in the peer support group have completed the Practice Launch CE course and share the mindset of lean and efficient ownership principles. You'll have access to a TEAM helping you accomplish your goals.
"I don't know enough to own a practice yet," is no longer an excuse.
"It’s a perfect layout to lean and mean!!! I still use it as a reference it basically provides every resource in every aspect of the practice .. It should be a school requirement because it’s the best dental business course I’ve taken.. clear and simple...Btw with the tips from DeAngelo I’ve seen 112 patients New Patients in July and thus far 80 NP in august. Own!!!! You owe it to yourself and our profession !!"
David Jenkins, DDS - Owner of Smile Parlor, Georgia
"Dr. Webster's course and community has a wealth of knowledge for every dentist who is an owner or wanting to become one. I ended up buying a thriving practice, but was struggling with the basics of the business management and marketing. The Practice Biopsy course along with his one-on-one brainstorming helped me develop a simple and concrete path to success."

"Start ups are tough with so many unknowns. Taking the practice launch CE was the best decision I made. It prevented me from making huge mistakes. Even after opening my practice I still review the modules. Honestly, I would have been completely lost without the course."
- Dr. Lawal Garuba, Owner of Sauk Trail Dental Care
"I thought I had a pretty good grasp on the business aspects of dentistry; but Practice Launch is full of actionable pearls that will help you take hold of your overhead and analzye the decisions you make in dentistry every day. I highly recommend this course."
- Dr. Lance Swapp, Owner of Swapp Family Dentistry - Colorado
"Would definitely recommend this course. I've already gone through the whole module and going through it a second time. Cost of the course will pale in comparison to what you learn to save yourself money in buying/starting a practice."
Vivek Thanawala, DDS
"The material in the Practice Launch program was outstanding for me to have as a dental student. It taught me all the things about owning my own practice, which dental school did not. And left me knowing I had the tools to be a successful owner. I highly recommend Practice Launch to any dental student serious about getting into ownership."
- Alvaro Malaga, 4th Year Dental Student - University of Michigan
"In dental school our professors told us with a chuckle, "You are just good enough not to kill anyone' as we graduated. the reality is school prepares you to cut teeth. With huge student debts we venture out naïvely trying to make the world a better place one smile at a time. Yes, it is true that we grow by making mistakes, but these mistakes are costly, further increasing stress that already lingers from the massive student and practice debt. I believe the solution is to find a mentor in the trenches doing real world dentistry. After coming across Dr. Webster’s content and seeing that it is straight facts, strategies, and solutions I lost interest in the fluffy podcasts i used to listen to ---- I highly recommend you start off by joining the Facebook Group and visit practicebiopsy.com --- Then sign up for Practice Launch."
- Dr. Radovan Rudik - Owner of Mooselake Dental, Guelph, ON, Canada
Hi, I'm DeAngelo Webster, DDS! Maybe you met me in my Daily Dental Business Vlogs on Facebook? Or maybe you met me from a post on DentalTown, read one of my blog posts on PracticeBiopsy.com, or heard about me from a friend?
My goal is simple: To contribute to the collective intelligence of the dental profession and to help other dentists get a little bit better every day. It is my passion to organize information in a useful way to help myself and other dentists to have better careers and lives.
My work has been featured in various dental blogs, podcasts, and dental magazines and I have been a recurring guest speaker for multiple dental schools around the country.
I started up my dental practice just months out of dental school - and have been in the game ever since :)
