Has Your Dream of a Fulfilling Career in Dentistry Gone Awry?

  • Overwhelmed by practice problems?
  • Struggling to find the right people for your team?
  • No time to manage admin or patient notes?
  • Work/life balance non-existent?
  • Flourishing career path taken an unwelcome turn?
  • Difficulties attracting the patients you really want?
  • Burdened by financial worries?
  • Scared of being sued or left in a tailspin by a claim against you?

And to cap it all you’re not even taking home enough money to make the grind worthwhile. You’ve worked too hard for dentistry to feel this tough.

It’s Time To Put Your Dental Nightmare Behind You

No one goes into dentistry thinking every day will be a breeze – but neither do they expect it to keep them awake at night. Yet when things go wrong it can affect your whole life. Workplace bullying, the threat of being sued, the daily anxiety of managing difficult patients and staff. Stress and overwhelm take their toll and leave you feeling trapped. Don’t panic. The Institute Of Dental Business (IODB) can support you to make dentistry work – no matter how tough things feel right now.


Identify commercial opportunities, align your team and deliver an improved customer experience, so your practice runs effectively and efficiently.


Get your career development back on track, learn to sell the services you really enjoy and master self-employed dentistry with confidence.

I Learned The Hard Way How To Make Dentistry Work - So You Don’t Have To

I know how challenging carving out a successful dentistry career and running a dental practice can be. When you’re run off your feet with both clinical and business commitments, it’s easy to lose sight of what matters. It was only after my practice and career hit rock bottom - to the tune of £££s - that I realised it was a lack of business knowledge, not clinical skills, that was holding me back. I turned it around fast, generating £500k a year, as a single-handed dentist working a 3-day week. With the right knowledge, skills and support, it is possible to make dentistry work without burning out. That’s why I set up the Institute of Dental Business (IODB) – so together we can create the success you have worked so hard for.

“Essential for all dental practices that want a successful practice. I feel very empowered after the training/workshop. Thank you.”

JP, Practice Consultant.


“I have just opened a squat private dental practice, which has been the culmination of several years of planning and plotting.  However, a couple of coaching sessions with Jane has really helped me focus on the key issues.  Jane has a wonderful and friendly manner, but she has a way of really distilling an issue into the salient points and help me think through the way forward.  Excellent.”

RD, Principal Dentist, Leamington Spa

“Since working with you money has been haemorrhaging into my account. Thank you.”

SC, Worthing

“Jane is amazing!! Give her a call .. your life will change for the better ! She is the real deal... she works from the heart and her purpose is to help you... I am testament.”


“Just had a coaching session with Jane Lelean and to be honest I was a bit apprehensive about it to begin with as it’s not something I would usually do- but it was actually really helpful and I would encourage anyone to have a chat with her- it has definitely helped me clarify my thoughts and plans.”


“I had an online session with Jane today and was really impressed how insightful it was! We talked about all different aspects of work and my headspace was tonnes clearer at the end! Some excellent tips on how to move forward and she gave great perspective on things that had got a bit muddled in my mind! I just wanted to say Thank you!”


“I’m really grateful for ALL your help and support, I would not have got to where I am now without you.”
