Earlier this year, more than 100 dental practices from all around Australia applied to win the 2022 Ultimate Practice Makeover - a $100,000 makeover including a $40,000 fit out from Medifit, a comprehensive marketing makeover from Dental Marketing Solutions, high-level coaching and consulting from a hand-picked team of experts and much more.
After a rigorous selection process, the lucky winner was Dr Michael Back of Authentic Dentistry in Canberra. Michael said "when I found out that I'd won, I was really, really excited. It's an opportunity to lean on experts who have an area of expertise where I do not... it's a great opportunity to tap into something that I wouldn't otherwise do."
Apart from Michael's practice receiving the makeover, the whole experience will be captured in the Ultimate Practice Makeover reality TV show, allowing the dental community to share the experience.
Dental Marketing Solution's CEO and the show's host, Angus Pryor, shares Michael's enthusiasm for the project.
"This is going to be an amazing experience. We've pulled together the top experts in the dental field to pretty much 'throw the kitchen sink' at the practice. It's basically everything we could think of to take the practice from good to amazing in the shortest possible time."
Medifit National Marketing & Business Development Manager, Marton Jakab, visited the practice recently to start the planning process for the fit out.
"There quite a few options for the practice," Marton said. "Our goal is to give new patients a 'wow' experience when they walk through the door. We'll work with Michael to come up with something that not only looks great, but has high functionality for Michael's team."
Every aspect of the implementation of the Ultimate Practice Makeover is being filmed in the style of a reality TV show to provide unique insight into the consultancy process. The Ultimate Practice Makeover will be released atwww.dentevents.tv in 2023.
