Welcome to the Shared Practices podcast! This podcast is for dentists who want to own their own practice but don't have the business knowledge or a clear pathway to ownership.
Today we interview Dr. Scott Leune, founder and CEO of Breakaway Practice about his recommendations for new grads to move towards ownership. Dr. Leune brings a wealth of experience and recommendations for anyone considering practice ownership and part two of this interview will be broadcast in our second season.
Dr. Leune graduated from UT Health Science Center School of Dentistry in 2005. His dental career began with three startup practices in San Antonio which grew to 80 staff, 10 dentists, and a call center in a very short time. These practices continued to average a combined total of over 700 new patients per month and were all managed by Dr. Leune working a mere 4 days per month. In 2011, Dr. Leune started seven practices in the Dallas-Fort Worth area, opening them within a two-month timespan. Over the last 4 years, through the Breakaway Affiliate Program, Dr. Leune has helped build approximately 80 startup practices nationwide.
For the last 8 years, Dr. Leune has lectured to thousands of dental professionals & executives sharing his proven systems, marketing and practice design, leading to consistently sold-out seminars. He has been featured in numerous dental publications and listed as the ‘most-subscribed-to-person’ on Dentaltown (the premiere online dental community).
Dr. Leune has also created and grown Breakaway’s Support Services and Affiliate Program to include over 270 practices nationwide, adding several more each day. He has continued to redefine practice management, as the leader & expert in profitable dental practice systems to maximize success.
