We are in interesting times indeed. I felt that there are many dental practitioners out there who were feeling overwhelmed and under prepared for the challenges that we are to face over the coming months and years. The CQC is now our lord and master, and the BDA is seen to shrug its shoulders when asked “What is to happen, what are we to do?”. So what do we do?

Well, we can gain knowledge and prepare ourselves. The problem is that most practice principles don’t have the time to do anything but work on their patients. Many of you are working more hours than you want to (be honest with yourself). Many more of you are stressed, some to the point of suffering health problems. There just doesn’t seem to be enough time in the day to do what we want to do. It can sometimes seem as if the job has becomes a burden. You can always employ a practice manager to lighten the load, and of course you can always sell your practice……or can you? Whilst the corporate bodies are still buying, they are being selective.  The young blood coming out of dental school seem to have no interest in being anything other than associates, and that’s all; assuming they can actually find a job. You feel trapped with an uncertain future made worse by the now almost crushing weight of regulation. And when the CQC comes and examines your practice (and you can bet your bottom dollar they will be checking the management, audit and administration structure) how do you feel you will fair? What are we to do?

Get prepared

The products on this site are designed to help streamline the running of your practice (as well as increasing its profitability). This is not clinical governance or practice management. This is the vital “stuff” missing from most of said packages available today. It’s all well and good knowing how to run an audit on radiographs, but do you have a written system for dealing with a receptionist who phones in sick? Have you already decided what to do when your associate gives you three months notice? Is this in writing? It’s all well and good knowing what to do when your patient has a heart attack in the surgery. But do you know all the medical complications that point to a risk of this occurring in your surgery in the first place? Just remind me how to manage that patient on Steroids?

And how about raising your income? Do you actually know what motivates people to buy, or are you still spending 5 minutes on a check up? Do you know how to spend time with your best patients to find the treatment they actually want from you, or are you too busy tread-milling more and more of the patients you would rather never see again? Enjoying dentistry, or dreading Monday morning? When you learn to express treatment options in an ethical manner, the patient will be able to choose the option that is right for them. And if that means that they choose the cheaper option, then you have the satisfaction in knowing you have full consent for treatment. This is not about selling swanky dentistry. This is about explaining treatment options in a way that patients understand.

The links to the products on this page are designed to make things easier for you. Remember, you choose which ones to buy. The information is there for the taking. All you have to do is make the decision to buy or not to buy. If you do buy I will ask one thing of you. You are all honourable people; many of you respected faces in our field. I know I shouldn’t need to say this, but please, do not pass the products on to third parties. In respect to the Practice system templates, I give you permission to modify them for your own individual use.

If after buying any of the products you feel we can be of extra help, please don’t hesitate to contact us. We have now added a printable order form which you can send with your payment (cheque or postal order) because we know not everyone trusts the Internet. The order form also allows you to buy all four products for a 10{5967c1c62f4ef8b7b412a831d8b156a63c78c639bcf63a7eb2a79bf93ffc16c4} discount.
