FAQ – how do I prepare the team for an NHS conversion?

Practice Plan explains how dental practices can prepare their teams for move from NHS to private dentistry.

One thing many dentists think about before they make the move from NHS dentistry to private is: ‘What will my team think and how can I prepare them for the move?’

This is a completely natural thought to have. It’s one that the team of expert regional support managers at Practice Plan can help you with. 

NHS to private dentistry

When considering a move to private dentistry it is really important to involve your team right from the very start of the process. Bring them on board with the move.

An essential part of the process, and something your RSM will help you with this, is explaining to the practice team why you want to move. Explain your reasoning behind the decision. 

Asking staff for their input and ideas about the move makes them feel part of the consideration process. That’s a critical element if the conversion is to be a successful one.   

Including your team right from the start fosters an inclusive atmosphere. This results in them endorsing the move and more willing to support you along the way.
