Dr. Ryan Molis

Chief Coaching & ClinCheck® Officer


Ryan began his dentistry career part time at two different practices in two very different communities in the Chicago area. He became an early adopter of Invisalign treatment and immersed himself in learning all he could.

He attended dozens of conferences, spent tens of thousands of dollars on marketing packages, and experienced a lot of trial end error to determine what worked best.

He saw first-hand the costs, challenges, and inefficiencies of decentralized Invisalign education.

He also learned from it.

His early start and deep commitment to providing Invisalign treatment positioned him to exponentially scale the growth of his practices over time. Eventually, he purchased both practices where he got his start, seamlessly growing the general dentistry and Invisalign offerings of both, and continually refining what worked.

Invisalign revenue quickly became over half of the revenue of both practices, and became the most exciting – and lucrative – part of the daily experiences of his practices, his team, and his life.

After nearly 20 years of unparalleled success, Ryan was repeatedly asked, and eventually inspired, to help other general dentists avoid the inefficiency of conferences, wasted time and money on ineffective marketing, and avoidable trial and error.

Knowing first-hand the positive impact of simply integrating Invisalign into a general dentistry practice, Ryan sought to help others do the same, and Molis Coaching was born.

By the Numbers

As a solo-practitioner with only 4 ops in each office, Ryan has exponentially grown two separate practices, one from 
$600,000 to $4.5 mil per year, and another from $250,000 to $1.9 mil per year.

  • Both in under 5 years
  • Both as a direct result of his Invisalign practice
  • Both in completely different communities with materially different median income levels - proving Invisalign practice success is possible in any market

Invisalign treatment conversion rate over 90% (with a 4 minute consultation speech)

75% of Invisalign treatment patients become general dentistry patients

50% of current practice is now entirely Invisalign treatment revenue

Annual average cases of nearly 800 per year

6,000 total Invisalign patients...and counting!

How did he and Ryan join forces for Molis Coaching?  Glad you asked!  You can read Our Story for more. But the short version is they were world class nerds together in high school (and are still today).

Most days you can find Scott well caffeinated by great coffee spending time with his wife, Amy, two kids, and special needs rescue dogs, while plotting his next adventure in locations with sunshine and palm trees!
