Want to create your ultimate dental practice? Make it a team effort

Surgery_178112195Practice Plan unveils the guest speakers at this year’s Practice Plan Workshop Tour.

Every year, dental practices up and down the country eagerly await the announcement of who’ll be topping the bill on the much sought-after ‘Practice Plan Workshop Tour’. Well, the wait is over! Practice Plan is proud to present this year’s speaker line-up of Laura Horton and Michael Bentley, two of the industry’s most inspiring business speakers.

Room by room

The workshop tour, entitled ‘How to create your ultimate dental practice, room by room’, is a brand new workshop for this year, created by the energetic duo to help practices break up what can sometimes seem like an insurmountable practice vision into an easy-to-digest action plan for all of the team to implement. To do this, Laura and Michael will segment the dental practice into key rooms and identify the vital elements of each room that can be built upon to create the ultimate practice.

Take the hygienist room as an example. Laura and Michael will explain how you can further utilise the skills of your hygienists – their scope of practise extends far beyond the typical ‘scale and polish’, and with the right support and training, these key members of your team can be treatment providers.

How about the consultation area? Whether the conversation happens in a separate room or in a surgery, every dentist and practice needs to invest in the communication of diagnosed and elected treatment, enabling the patient to make more-informed decisions about their treatment.

Another area of focus will be the practice ‘entrance’ – and that’s not just the front door! How many access points are there to your practice? Telephone, website, email, from the street – what are your prospective patients’ first impressions? How are you capturing their information? Your hosts will ensure you’re making the most of these opportunities in the future!

Laura and Michael are big names in the industry and have a unique style of presenting, which is informative and entertaining in equal measure.

Here’s what a recent delegate had to say of the duo: ‘This was one of the most entertaining courses I have ever been on, but also very thought-provoking and incredibly informative. Michael and Laura, what a team! 10/10’ – Rachel Honess, Beaufort Dental Health Centre.

Get involved

The 12-date tour will begin on 9 September in Bristol and will work its way around the country, stopping at 10 other locations including Heathrow, Edinburgh, Manchester and Newcastle.

The tour is free to attend for Practice Plan members with over five patients on plan, and Practice Plan is also throwing the doors open to non-members too, with tickets costing just £100.
