FAQ – why is now the time?

Louise Bone explores why now is the time for practices to start looking at moving from NHS to private dentistry.

The biggest question is, why is now not the time to look at your exit strategy from the NHS?

The COVID-19 pandemic is giving business owners the chance to step back. They can then re-evaluate the present and decide how they want their future to look.

Over the last 18 months more dentists look at the situation and take their destiny into their own hands. They are deciding they no longer want to work under the stresses and strains of the NHS contracts and targets.

Back logs in NHS waiting lists are arguably bigger than they have ever been. Many are now deciding that their future firmly lies in private dentistry.

Moving forward they want to enjoy a better work-life balance. They want to spend time with patients and also give them the care that they deserve.

And for many NHS dentists making the move to private dentistry, they want to work in a setting where they are able to do the dentistry that they trained to do.
