We believe that when professionals can harness the power of their passions, the care they provide, and the life they live drive the difference between good and best. We know that inspiration comes from association with like minds and that our best selves are realized through continuous learning and the fulfillment of overcoming obstacles.

Dr. Alice Hale
“ACT Dental has helped me change my practice which changed my life! The focus really is “Better Practice Better Life.” If you are dreaming about a practice you want to drive to everyday, ACT will help you get there. Coaching with ACT Dental will be the best decisions you can make for your dental practice and in turn for your life!”
Dr. James Maxwell
St. Louis, MO
“Just returned from an amazing TTT study club meeting in Milwaukee!! As dentist with over 20 years of experience with different coaches & ideas. I’ve never met a group of people like Kirk and his team that genuinely care as much about making you a better person as helping you improve your practice. Kirk, Barrett & Miranda over delivered in their content at the meeting. I feel so fortunate to be part of this group!!”
Dr. Kristen A Donohue
“Incredible coaching. ACT helped me transform my practice from a dysfunctional, PPO practice to a high performing Fee-For-Service Practice!! They gave me the tools to inspire my team and lead with practical strategies to enhance my team’s well being, minimize my stress and take the absolute best care of my patients in the process. We have the right people in the right seats in our practice, we center all our decisions around our core values and I provide regular feedback to my team in the form of checkins. ACT also taught me how to run a team meeting to focus on day to day issues that arise while also constantly working on one or two quarterly priorities with our team. The coaching process with ACT has been completely transformative for my practice and I love this company with all my heart. I can’t thank them enough.”
Dr. Emily Stancato
Union Grove, WI
“This coaching company has the most refreshing and relevant philosophy. We’ve been a client for just over a year now. They have been an invaluable resource in how to be a great dentist, great business owner, great employer. Our office culture is healthier than ever and our practice profitability is hitting new records. We’re all working better and smarter, NOT harder.”
Dr. Kathryn Connor
“Learn an emotionally intelligent success plan for managing your dental office. ACT is amazing and really does help you create a better practice and better life!”
Dr. Denise Halliburton
Ellicott City, MD
“I’ve been in different consulting companies, mastermind groups, and study groups, this company motivates me. The tools I’ve learned to implement make my practice a better practice to work in. I came in feeling overwhelmed as a solo dental practice but I’ve been given tools to make my practice better. I’ve already seen a difference in the first 90 days. Most of all I leave feeling inspired. I highly recommend this company if you want strong systems that work to help avoid burnout and breakdown in your practice.”
Dr. Kevin Groth
Bingham Farms, MI
“Their coaching program changed my life. I now have a practice that supports a balanced lifestyle with my family as the focus, an amazing team that I love working with, and a productive office supports my short and long term goals. I am so grateful for all that Kirk and the rest of ACT Dental has done for my life, and the lives of countless others!”
Dr. Brandon James
Overland Park, KS
“TTT and BPA (formerly known as ACT Dental) is hands down the #1 coaching firm in the industry. They are incredibly knowledgeable and helpful but even better people. Consider myself very fortunate to be able to be a part of this community. Thank you all for all you are doing for each one of us!!”
Dr. James Williams
Sauk Centre, MN
“Better practice better life - we have both since joining the ACT family. Great people teaching great things.”
Dr. Brent Cornelius
“ACT has been so valuable helping develop my game plan to take our practice from where we are to the next level. I can’t say enough good things about Kirk, Barrett and my coach, Jenni. I’ve worked with several coaches/consultants over the last 25 years and ACT matches up with my values better than any other team I’ve encountered. Highly recommended!”
Wall Township, NJ
“We are so grateful for the incredible impact ACT Dental's coaching and their new innovative financial spreadsheet has on our practice. This tool provides us with a powerful way to clearly visualize our financial position, identify gaps, and set targets that will enhance our practice, serving as a roadmap to success. Thanks to this game-changing spreadsheet from ACT Dental, we look forward to achieving a better practice and ultimately enjoying a better life! Thank you for all you do to help your clients!”
Dr. Hadley Thurmon
“ACT is an essential part of my career and my life! They help me develop my leadership skills at every meeting and podcast I attend. I can’t thank you enough for all of your guidance and support since my first DVDs in 2009!”
Dr. Richard Morales
Coral Gables, FL
“Always a phenomenal experience in helping to sculpt the business (and practice) of dentistry. I am always re-energized when attending. And the coaching has already taken my practice to another level, working to get better.”
Dr. Andy Stein
“This has single handedly been the best community in dentistry I’ve ever been a part of! They aren’t “selling” anything and they don’t want to make you fit into their mold. They simply want to help dentists have a better life - at work and at home.They aren’t for everyone, they aren’t going to teach you how to create a DSO or how to run a Medicaid mill. But they are going to help you grow as a leader and as a human being and because of that your team, your patients, and your family will benefit!If you are looking for a group of people who care about YOU, look no further!”
Dr. Tyler Bolin
“I can’t say enough about the entire ACT Dental organization! My experience over the last 2 years has been phenomenal. It’s not only changed and grown my practice, but it’s helped to grow me as a leader and a person. Our entire team has benefited from our time with ACT. Grateful for Adriana, Kirk and the ACT Team.”
Drs. Ryan & Emma Dodge
“Feel like you can’t find a practice coach that fits YOUR practice? Look no further. ACT Dental Practice Coaching and their wonderful team will help you develop specific, attainable goals in order to (as their motto says) have a “better practice” and a “better life.”
Dr. Christopher Altadonna
“Why did I wait so long to hire ACT Dental?!? I'm a new coaching client, now 3 months in. What an invigorating, cohesive experience for our entire team! We now have a clear vision and a path to achieve our goals! What a great team ACT has to help guide us on our journey. The community of like-minded practice owners is an incredible resource to lean on. I feel blessed to be a member! Smartest practice decision I made in 22 years! Thank you, ACT Dental!”
Dr. Udoka Holinbeck
“I feel re-energized after every session and meeting. I have found a like-minded community through ACT Dental. Thank you!”
Dr. Daniel Tremblay
“Working with ACT Dental as a coaching client is one of the best decisions I have ever made. It has been transformational for our team, patients, and myself personally.Far too often, I hear dentists that are burnt out, frustrated and no longer passionate about dentistry. Kirk, Barrett and their amazing team of coaches will reinvigorate you & change your life. They are passionate about what they do and teach their clients the systems and skills to help you develop your core values and bring them to life in your practice. You will stop managing people and start developing leaders. Working with their team is one of the best investments you could make for your practice, team and life.I cannot rave about them enough. If you are on the fence or have more questions, you can always reach out and I’d be happy to help you understand the value they will bring to your future!Special shout out to my amazing coach, Heather too!”
Dr. Mark Swensen
“It would not be an overstatement to say that ACT Dental has changed my life. Different consultants and coaching companies will give you different things. If you are looking to develop a practice that will allow you to give your best energy to the things you truly care most about, then ACT is for you! I can promise you that as you put in the hard work with your coach and the amazing community at ACT, you will grow as a leader, your team will grow and align with you, and your practice will flourish…and that can lead to an amazing life. You won’t regret it!”
Dr. Liz Abe-Batson
“I’ve always enjoyed hearing Kirk speak. From dental school to big meetings to Best Practices at their headquarters. The entire ACT team is awesome! (Especially our coach, Angela!) Change your practice, thinking, and life. The best and worth it!”
Dr. Janet Weyrich
“ACT has helped our practice go from good to great. Lots of consultants can show you how to work harder longer hours to produce more. ACT helped us produce and collect more working less hours, leaving us more time to live our best life.”
