Our Story – Creating Business Education For Dentists 


The Schuster Management model was created by a practicing dentist, Dr. Michael Schuster. As a young dentist, Dr. Schuster was frustrated by not being able to communicate with his patients and the inadequate training dental school provided for owning and operating his own practice. He designed our management method for his own practice out of this frustration and the desire to provide his patients the very best care he was capable of delivering.

Over time and through his teaching advanced technical training at the Pankey Institute, he began to attract dentists from all corners of the world who wanted to learn about this model he created.  To help them, he documented every compondr-schuster-officeent of his model in the hope they would be able to apply it to their own practices. The Schuster Center was born out of his desire to help his fellow professionals achieve the same level of satisfaction in their practice that he has been able to create in his life. Ours is the only school in existence that helps the high quality, technically advanced dentist structure their practice to engage patients in an ethical manner while helping the doctor achieve a high level of financial success.

Our curriculum is designed to teach you everything you need to know about your business and how to create all the structure in your practice to ensure you thrive now and in the future. The curriculum we offer is organized to build a solid foundation for your practice, step by step. The coaching which accompanies each class is individually tailored for each practice. To determine which classes are necessary for you, we complete a thorough exam and diagnosis of the practice. Using the information from that process, we design a program to fit your individual practice needs, help you solve the problems you are facing and accomplish the goals you set for your practice and future.

The Curriculum is supported by a Practice Development Coach to ensure the information learned is tailored and applied by the dentist and team to meet their needs. The Coach acts as a guiding influence, and accountability while offering feedback and support along the way. This ensures the doctor not only achieves what is desired through the training but understands how to do this on their own for a lifetime.

Whether you are starting a practice from scratch or have been an owner of your own practice for 20 years, The Schuster Center team can address your needs and customize a program to accomplish your goals for your practice, your patients, and your family.

Practice Development Versus Practice Consulting:

A traditional consultant keeps you in the dark about how to solve your problems and frustrations and thus guarantees a job for themselves.  We believe a different approach is more successful long term.  Dr. Schuster’s Management Method will give you the power to be the designer of your practice. Ultimately you understand everything that is involved in operating your practice and hold all the keys to your future. We believe that when we give you correct information, combined with the right coaching and support, you will accomplish all of the goals you set and know exactly how you achieved your outstanding results.  You will understand how to apply the foundational knowledge you learn to refine and grow your practice for a lifetime.

Simply stated, we want you to have the power over your preferred future, not us.
