Rave reviews take Practice Management Conference to Scotland

Practice Management ConferencePractice Plan introduces its Practice Management Conference and explains what you can expect to see there.

Are you looking to develop your practice management team’s skills? If so, you needn’t look any further. On Friday 6 February 2015, Edinburgh will host the latest Business of Dentistry Events’ Practice Management Conference.

This isn’t a one-size-fits-all conference though, it’s a full-day event tailored specifically for individuals who occupy a practice management role within a dental practice. So if you’re a practice manager, principal dentist or business owner, this workshop will help you to develop your skills, your knowledge and become even better at what you do.

Only the best

Of course, only the best industry speakers would be appropriate for an event of this calibre. So, Business of Dentistry Events, in partnership with Practice Plan, has booked some of the biggest names in the industry, including Sheila Scott, Kevin Lewis, Krishan Joshi and Ruth Findlay, to part with their wise words of wisdom. With their topics ranging from enhancing dental practice websites through to protecting your practice from litigation, the content is varied, informative and entertaining.

Here’s a snapshot of each speaker and their topic:

  • Straight-talking business consultant, Sheila Scott, will demonstrate how managers can influence people in a positive way and use a framework to help you communicate a need for change
  • Kevin Lewis, dental director of Dental Protection, will explain how you can safeguard you and your business from litigation in an ever-changing industry
  • Internet marketing director of Dental Focus, Krishan Joshi, will focus on dental practices’ online presence, focusing on how you can convert more website visitors into phone calls, email enquiries and online bookings
  • Ruth Findlay, regional support manager at Practice Plan, will explain how dental practices should be making the most of the resources they’ve invested in, including finance facilities, software, people and education.


The speakers took to the stage to deliver the conference earlier this year in Bolton and Reading, and with people shouting from the rooftops as to how much they took from the day, it was decided the event would take place in Edinburgh too. Here’s what some of the attendees had to say.

‘It was an action-packed and informative day with plenty of audience participation, which kept us listening right up to the end. We took away plenty of hints and tips to implement in the practice straight away. I would recommend that both practice owners and managers attend. I can’t wait to book on next year.’ – Anthea Hardiman, practice owner, Stoke Lane Dental Practice.

‘What a delightful combination of insight, skills and humour to help us develop our practice growth and development.’ – Marc Mortiboys, principal owner, Mortiboys Dental Spa.

‘I have attended the conference for the last few years and each year it gets better and better. I go back to my practice a better manager.’ – Lisa Bainham, practice manager, The Old Surgery Dental Practice.

Throughout the conference there will also be a strong focus on networking, allowing individuals and teams to share their experiences and pick up new ideas; something delegates really enjoyed about previous conferences.

With tickets available for as little as £120 per person, you can secure yours by visiting www.practiceplan.co.uk/events or calling 01691 684135.
