As the President and Co-Founder of Dental Coach USA I have a passion for seeing and being a part of making dreams come true. From my experience in the medical, insurance, and fitness world I have helped thousands of people in a plethora of services. One of the constants I noticed was there are few to no companies that can truly be a “one stop shop” for business owners. No one enjoys the process of doing research, checking reviews, and hoping they are working with someone they can trust. I knew a solution had to be created. Through my incredible mentors I found a love for the Dental industry and I enjoyed working with dentists as an industry advisor. It was then I decided it was time, time to create the one stop shop I had imagined. That is how Dental Coach USA was created. We have formed a team of Coaches that are the best and most trusted in the industry, that cover every aspect of the dental world. We can take you from the beginning idea of wanting to own a practice, all the way to sitting in your own successful practice, comfortable, happy, confident, and financially stable, filling in every gap in-between.
Experience You Can Count On
Bob Affleck’s passion is to help dentists realize their dream of practice ownership as well as practice growth and success, which in the end leads to a road map of a legacy to be proud of. He has been dedicated to doing so for over 31 years and has successfully changed the lives of thousands of dentists.
How did it begin?
1989 was a year to remember, it was a year when my daughter was born and the year when I took my first steps into the dental world. I now look back in Gratitude for the year that brought me my daughter and into the world of dentistry. It wasn’t until two years later, when we had our second child, a son, that I realized I truly had two passions in life. First and most importantly being a father, and second, helping make a difference in dentists’ lives.
Early on I had discovered there was a massive gap in what dentists had learned in dental school, and the knowledge they needed to possess to open a practice of their own. That is what took me down the path of becoming a Practice Finance Specialist, Practice Management Consultant, and even a Practice Broker. Closing that gap for dentists and helping them achieve their hopes and dreams has led me into my passion of educating, guiding, and helping dentists from beginning to end.
What does that mean for you?
Bob has taken these 31 years of experiences and helped shape them into a vital part of our one of a kind coaching packages that can provide you with the knowledge that no school has ever offered.
