Introducing The Tooth Booth Pty Ltd 

The Tooth Booth Pty Ltd owns and operates three new Dental Lounges in prime locations in Brisbane’s major shopping centres; Indooroopilly, Westfield Chermside and Westfield Carindale. The Clinics are appealing and comfortable for patients and efficient and productive for dentists. The model has been structured to enhance the attractiveness to both patients and dentists.

The Tooth Booth delivers affordable, accessible dental services and offers all new patients a $149 Check- Up/Clean & X rays, or if the patient has dental insurance this service is “Gap Free” ( no out of pocket expense for the patient ). Each Tooth Booth Clinic also has its in-house teeth whitening lounges and offers Orthopantomogram X-ray imaging. Tooth Booth prides itself on, and is absolutely committed to, outstanding patient care and customer service. Extended opening hours including weekends and late Thursday evenings enhance patient convenience.

A particular appeal of the Tooth Booth business model to dentists is that they are able to devote their whole working day to clinical dentistry while the Company’s professional employees take care of everything else, including all administration and management of the dental centres and the wider business.

The Company’s network expansion is planned via rollout of new dental centres in convenient locations within busy shopping centres in South East Queensland, with the view to expand into New South Wales and Victoria in the future. A total of 3 new Tooth Booth Dental Lounges are planned to open in 2017 at Robina, North Lakes and Toowoomba.

Tooth Booth will continue to build clusters of dental clinics in targeted geographic regions to realise efficiencies and benefits in regional management, centre staffing and dentist schedules and in key marketing activities.

"Tooth Booth Westfield North Lakes to open August 2017

Tooth Booth are in final discussions with Westfield North Lakes to open a new Tooth Booth Dental Lounge in August 2017. The 115m2 site is in a very prominent position in the North Lakes centre opposite Woolworths and Big W.

 Webinar Invitation

On Tuesday 23 May I will be presenting a Webinar on "Small Scale Offers and Funding Strategies" to members of MSIA. MSIA have kindly agreed to extend an invitation to you, our readers, to attend. 

Small Scale Offerings (SSO) are a crowd funding facility for small to medium enterprises (SME) in Australia to raise equity finance. They differ from listing on the Australian Stock Exchange (ASX) and the National Stock Exchange in a few key ways.

SSO are ideal for emerging and growing companies that look to raise $0.5-$5m. 

A wide range of businesses, from seed and start-up stage to award-winning and government granted companies, as well as more established growth and expanding companies, have raised under an SSO seeking access to growth capital and to connect with potential investors and other stakeholders.

Upcoming Executive Elite Events 

We look forward to meeting with you at the upcoming events held by Executive Elite, of which we are a founding member. 

CFIA - Crowdfunding Experts Panel 

"With the Crowd Sourced Funding bill passing into law earlier this year start-ups and small business will be able to advertise directly to investors without the costs and hassles of a full IPO, not only accessing limited numbers of Angel Investors or VC's, but the public at large. Things have intensified greatly with the publication of a Proprietary model for crowdfunding so we will be keen to hear about the implications of making the 'other 99%' of companies potentially eligible to crowdfund."

I have been invited to help unpack the new legislation and follow with Q&A to help unlock the requirements and show you how equity crowdfunding is set to work. The event will be held in Brisbane on Monday 29 May from 5:30pm.
