Meet Dr. Phelps

It’s becoming more and more important to differentiate in order to grow your dental practice.

Dr. Christopher Phelps is an entrepreneur, general dentist, and an Amazon best-selling
author. He currently practices in Charlotte, NC and is the host of the Dental Slang

In his first seven years of practice Chris grew his practice revenue by a factor of 10X:
growing from one practice location to four. After selling two of those offices for profit,
Chris focused on maximizing the capacity of his remaining two practices and enjoyed
two consecutive years of $1,000,000 revenue growth in each of the two practices,
effectively collecting with two offices what he had collected when he owned four.

He is the founder and president of Golden Goose Scheduling, The Phelps Institute and
Dental Membership Direct.

Golden Goose Scheduling helps practices answer and schedule more new patient calls
while reactivating patients who are overdue for hygiene care.

The Phelps Institute was founded to train Dentists in both the clinical and business
aspects of running their practice.

At Dental Membership Direct, he helps offices create, implement and grow their own in-
house dental membership plan.
