Healthcare Integration in Dental Practice, with Dr. Marc Cooper (“Dental Business Radio,” Episode 12)
Host Patrick O’Rourke and Dr. Marc Cooper of MBC Consultants engage in a conversation both frank and vital on the integration of primary healthcare in dental practices. This conversation serves as an excellent prelude for an intensive conference on this subject Dr. Cooper will be leading in November 2021. “Dental Business Radio” is underwritten and presented by Practice Quotient: PPO Negotiations & Analysis and produced by the North Fulton studio of Business RadioX®.

Dr. Cooper has also worked with numbers of other health care entities such as insurance companies, clearing houses, bio-technical companies, and disease management companies, as well as senior executives and boards of large hospitals and hospital systems and a number of their related physician groups.
In addition, Dr. Cooper has worked with Silicon Valley start-ups and Fortune 500 companies. He has spoken at dental conferences in 17 countries and has worked with dental clients in the U.S., U.K. Canada, Panama, Portugal, Italy, Greece, Dubai, Abu Dhabi, Brazil, Singapore, Australia, New Zealand and Israel.
Dr. Cooper’s professional career includes private periodontist, academician, researcher, teacher, practice management consultant, corporate consultant, trainer, seminar director, board director, author, entrepreneur, and inventor. He has studied with masters in many disciplines, participated in formal business educational programs, and worked as an independent contractor with top-flight consulting companies. In 2012, Dr. Cooper was selected as a coach for the prestigious TED Fellows Program and is still active with the program.
Dr. Cooper is author of eleven books, over 200 published articles and more than 2,000 blogs. Once he left the DEO, his focus took two paths. One, bringing wisdom to leadership. Two, a commitment to the integration of primary care in dental practice – a commitment which propelled Marc to create Integration of Primary Care in Dental Practice Conference for dentists, DSOs, physician groups, hospitals, investors, suppliers, and advisors in dental practices – the delivery side of the house. Dr. Cooper is known for his ability to recognize and appreciate when a context is the early stages of shifting, and he understands that context is decisive.
