Practice Management Services

Our platform for advising and coaching has consistently developed over the past decade. Shifting and adjusting with changing economic climates, and industry trends keep us on the forefront of navigating the complexities of dental practice management.

Practice Evaluations

Practice Evaluations

Practice Evaluations are essentially the first step to establishing a plan or action, whether it’s due diligence for doctors buying a practice, or doctors that want an opinion on the condition of their practice for selling or enhancing their business. A Practice Evaluation points out the strengths and weaknesses of individual practices, and a subsequent plan is then tailored to determine condition and opportunity through a comprehensive report and consultation.

What Doctors Say About MAK Concepts

We’ve worked with hundreds of practices across the United States. Below are some of the recent Doctors we’ve worked with in helping them transition, grow, or sell their practice.

  • Dr. Jenny Caruso Dr. Jenny Caruso

    I’ve worked with Teri McAviney since 2012 when I acquired my dental office. She set the new groundwork for my office which was an existing older dental practice. Her coaching is customized, thorough, easy to understand, and implement. Her coaching involved practice owner leadership, front and back office staff training, and ALL aspects of business. I have learned and continue to learn so much from her. She has been with me every step of the way. I highly recommend her services.

  • Dana M. Nichols, DMD Dana M. Nichols, DMD

    Teri was recommended to me while living in Ohio and starting the process of purchasing a practice in California. I was so impressed with her depth of knowledge and attention to detail during the due diligence process, that I signed on with her to help with the transition. Teri’s hands-on approach was an immeasurable asset to my transition, and the systems place continue to be the cornerstone of our continued growth. After 20+ years in this profession, I have never met someone as committed and passionate about practice growth and achieving the success we all dream of. I am honored to highly recommend Teri and Mak Concepts to anyone looking to take their practice to the next level.

  • Dr. Mark Galli Dr. Mark Galli

    My 6 years of working with Teri McAviney have been nothing short of awesome. When I planned to purchase a second practice and move my current one into that location, I knew I would need a talented transition specialist to ensure a smooth process. I would be combining two teams, never an easy feat, taking over for a well respected senior doctor who had 30 years of goodwill, something I didn't want to squander, and combining computer software systems, requiring the data compilation of a seasoned statistician. After choosing Teri from a talented pool of consultants and specialists, she quickly became like part of the team. Our transition was nearly seamless and the data acquisition and analysis over the next few months was so valuable and useful that I hired her permanently as a practice analyst. We now have a professional relationship that is an indelible and invaluable part of my career.
