The Ultimate Roadmap to the OTHER SIDE of the COVID-19 Crisis!

Dentistry has never seen anthing like this before. We don't know how long this will last, but we will be with you every step of the way until this ends.  We will bring you tools weekly to help you navigate through to the other side of this crisis and be ready to go once you are able to go back to work.

WE will get through this as a profession and become profitable again, but in order for that to happen YOU need to get through this.  We will help you do just that in ACT Academy.

Here is a SMALL SAMPLE of the tools and solutions in ACT Dental Academy:


  • We will provide you with a step-by-step checklist in what to do every week (that we will be updating constantly) that you and your team to follow with REAL TIME items to do right now.
  • We will also provide you with a checklist of items to do with your DOWN TIME that are proactive in nature to keep your team focused and "sharpen the saw" in this important time.
  • We will also provide you with an EXCEL SPREADSHEET (that we will also be updating constantly) to help you forecast and track your cash flow so that you know exactly the date you will run out of cash and how to prolong that every day.  
  • You love dentistry and you have spent years attending courses to improve your skills and your practice, but some things just don’t stick and you don’t know how to fix that.
  • You spend a lot of time researching what is going on in dentistry and your afraid of losing the freedom that you have in private practice.
  • Your practice sometimes runs YOU instead of YOU RUNNING IT. The day to day management and ownership of private practice seems less and less fun.
  • You struggle to get things organized and stay on tops of things. What’s worse, is that when you do find time to work on your practice you often don’t know where to start because there is too much to do.
  • Your team members are too close to you to hear your constructive advice. They are actually starting to resent it. You can see them tune you out the second you start explaining a better way to do things.
  • You truly don’t know what is happening at the front desk of your practice. You only pray that things go well up there, because you have way too much to do in the back.
  • You have tried other “online dental video training platforms” in dentistry that are really good but they bore the heck out of your team and sometimes don’t apply to your practice.


Dr. Wael Garine presented this graphic as a great example of how we have to think as dentists and team members in this time, and we couldn't agree more.  Thank you Dr. Garine!  You are a genius!

We will help you prepare for the road ahead, no matter what happens:

  • We are crazy passionate about helping dentists and their teams create a better practice and a better life. This only only happens with a more engaged dental team. When you have that - it changes your practice and ultimately your life.

  • We know that (as a dentist) you aren’t a normal entrepreneur that can take a few days away from the business to strategize to make it better. Your practice only works when you work in it.

  • We know that your team meetings become gripe sessions in which you regurgitate the same problems over and over to the point that no one wants to do them anymore. Especially you. In fact, there are days in which you would rather see a patient than sit through another meeting.

  • We know that the future of private care dentistry is only going to get harder, and you are afraid of losing the freedom you have. It isn’t going to get any easier. That is why every dental team instead has to get better.

  • We know that dentistry is the greatest profession ever, but you don’t have a life and you can’t get ahead financially it can be the worst trap of all.

  • Finally, help is here! That is WHY we created this incredible resource called ACT Dental Academy.

Meet the ACT Dental Academy Team!

Hello, we are the expert coaching team at ACT Dental. We have worked with hundreds of dentists and teams to create a better practice and a better life.

Kirk Behrendt started the company in 1997 after traveling the country as a dental consultant and attending some of the very best CE that dentistry has to offer. His vision was to take a more specific and focused approach and create a team of “coaching” experts that could truly change the world - one dental practice at a time.

As a dentist, you have a lot of great choices when it comes to finding an expert to help you in this extremely noble profession. Your challenge is finding the RIGHT expert for you. We are certainly not everyone’s coach - and we wouldn’t want to be. We have a super strong set of core values that guide our work every day. If you are looking at only making more money, then we are definitely not your coach.

But if you are instead a life-long learner, who cares about team members, and knows your dental practice could be just a little bit better, look no further. We have taken hundreds of years of expertise as coaches and combined them all into one amazing support system for the truly passionate dental teams. Get ready to experience the best dentistry has to offer.  Welcome to ACT Dental!
