Hussein Hassanali talks to Suki Singh about his move to private dentistry

private dentistry with hussein hassanaliIn Practice Plan’s latest podcast, Hussein Hassanali discusses his motivation to move away from the NHS towards private dentistry.

When practices and dentists make the move from NHS to private dentistry, they cite a number of reasons for doing so. These include the ability to spend more time with patients, to do the dentistry they want and trained to do. As well as enjoying a better work-life balance.

And that has been the case for associate dentist Hussein Hassanali in York. He has moved away from a practice where he was predominantly doing NHS work. Now he works in a private practice where 99% of the work is in a private setting.

The move to private dentistry

During this podcast, Hussein chats with Practice Plan area manager, Suki Singh. They discuss the reasons behind why he decided to leave an NHS practice behind to spend more time working with private patients. And what he enjoys most since making the move. As well as covering what general life is like as a largely private practitioner.
