Meet Dr. Thomas Dooley

Dr. Dooley graduated from University of Kentucky Dental School in 2014. He has has always had a strong desire to continue to learn and grow throughout his career and have one of the best offices in the entire country. He purchased his practice in 2017 and was able to triple the practice from 1.4 million in collections to 4.3 million in collections in 6 years. His goal is to inspire, impact and to develop all those around him. Through the podcast and continuing education he is hoping to make an even big impact and give back to the profession of dentistry. With the courses, his goal is to simplify and create content that is easy to digest and implement right away! 

Meet Dr. Silvia

He graduated from the University of Kentucky Dental School in 2014. Clinical excellence has naturally been his strength but early in dental school he recognized that great clinical skills don’t equate to a great dental practice or life. Raised by the school of hardknocks, Dr. Silvia has experienced many facets of dental ownership including fee for service practice, corporate/DSO practice, hybrid fee for service practice, insurance dependent practice, solo acquisition, chart sales, and multiple location ownership and management. Often learning from what not to do, Dr. Silvia hopes that through the podcast and sharing his journey he can help others avoid mistakes he has made and share some of the best practices that have led to his successes.
