We're two dentists (Drs. Galen & Davina Detrik) with one purpose... NEVER RETIRING!

There was a time when each of us drove 3 hours per day, earning just enough to SURVIVE and pay our student loans. No autonomy. No assets. No love for the game.

Life was monotony, work was work and we wanted more.

NOW, it couldn't be any more different, from multi-million dollar businesses we built & own, to a network of THRIVE dentists in 5 continents who have joined our Tribe.

We don't have a "secret", just a killer SYSTEM that works. So we invite you to stay a while and see if it might work for you too!  We'd love to get to work for and with you friend.

So about the whole THRIVE thing...


THRIVE is the most dentist-obsessed, educational ecosystem on the planet.

Our life's work in a sentence.

Let’s face it though, it’s a fancy elevator pitch of WHAT we do. Not WHO we are or WHY we do it.

So let's start over again...

Here's the real reason we stop at nothing to reinvent dental CE… every. single. day.


"Who said hustle had to come with the grind?"


Dr. Galen Detrik (that’s me) and Dr. Davina Detrik (that’s my woman crush turned wife turned co-founder of THRIVE) grew up in the hard-working towns of rural New Mexico. 

That's important because....

Many of the so-called ‘gurus’ lead you to believe that “life was hard once, but when you arrive, you too can finally live easy!"

But wait... who said hustle had to come with the grind? Probably someone who wasn't all that good at working in the first place...

We take a different approach...

We love work. Yes, I said LOVE.

It was incepted into our DNA to create and better things, to live autonomously and to pioneer. We are after all, from the wild west!

You just have to know, that when you place value on very real things like creativity, autonomy and leadership, real work and persistence are essential ingredients.


"Why just survive when you can THRIVE?"


There is a fundamental disparity between life-sucking monotony and light-you-the-f*ck-up mission... one drains and the other fuels.

So which do you experience as a dentist?

THRIVE stands for the possibility & power of work weeks you jump out of bed for.

THRIVE stands for immensely profitable days that grow your wealth & better your health.

THRIVE stands for work that satisfies, work that lasts, and work committed to the creation of more Time, Happiness, Relevance, Income, VarietyExperience.

That's WHY we reinvented dental CE...

Each of our products is built with supreme intention, to help you embody a success that never 'arrives', because it's always present.

We’re for the committed, not the comfortable.

We're for the invested, not the interested

We're for the decisive, not the dreamer.


We'd like to welcome you to the THRIVE CEcosystem™.


It's more than an education... it's a way of life.

Let’s create extraordinary together.

The PROLIFIK Mastermind

An Elite Guest Interview Series

Truth... I really wanted an excuse to talk to the most brilliant minds & leaders outside dentistry and needed a reason to pick their brains about how to better my own practice.

Dare... join me as I interrogate global thought leaders. We talk. We listen. We destroy goals.


Epic Guests

Best-selling authors, fitness gurus, multi-millionaires, marketing mavens, celebrity coaches, global podcasters... there's a reason we call it PROLIFIK...

Laser Coaching

Wouldn't it be something if a NYT best-selling author could help you fine-tune your in-office marketing? It's not a dream, it's PROLIFIK...

The MNMLST Method™

The Art of The Lean, Green Machine

It all started with a simple concept... build a practice that operates 4-6 days each month, with $1 MM in annual production, one single employee, radically low overhead, an exquisite patient experience and no insurance.

Easy enough, right?


Minimal Overhead

What does it take to reduce your overhead to less than 20% for large cases? In the digital world, anything is possible when you go MNMLST...

Insurance Free

Tired of slashing your fees yet? Everyone says your practice will tank if you drop insurances, so we're here to tell you it's quite the opposite...

Client Experience

How do we curate the most exceptional client journey, keep our overhead low and work 4 days / mo? Life is better inside MNMLST...

The AVANT Masterclass

The Art of Becoming The Hunted

Once we had the system behind the practice, it was time to scale and simplify so that we didn't have to work our tails off for each and every yes to comprehensive & cosmetic treatment plans. Imagery and video to the rescue!

Lights! Camera! Action!


Dental Photography

While most dental photos scare patients away, there's a psychology to imagery that sells for you effortlessly, taught click-by-click inside AVANT...

Video Testimonials

You really want to set yourself apart? Learn video. If a picture is worth a thousand words, an emotive patient video review is The LOTR Trilogy.

Virtual Consults

Everyone is jumping onto the virtual consult train... except, not all dentists create equally. So prove to them what you can do, powered by AVANT...

The DEFIANT Masterclass

The Art of BioConservative Dentistry

I spent years in jail... literally. Doing dentistry on inmates with just one material at my disposal, a love affair formed with composite as the most universal & biomimetic material on God's green earth, capable of recreating natural beauty.

We're not mechanics; we're magicians.


Resin Veneers

Sure, telling a lab tech what to do is easier. It's just... you want more from dentistry than copy/paste don't you? Creativity looks like DEFIANT...

Class I - VI

You can fix anything with composite, but are you a resin ninja? The magic is in the mystery... which tooth did you actually restore Michaelangelo?

Biomimetic Science

But composite breaks down, chips, stains and looks like sh*t right? Yeah, if you bond with water. How to do it right the first time is DEFIANT...

And here are a bunch of logos...
