Planning for a future in private practice – one step at a time

Join Zoe Close, Chris Groombridge and Richard Ollive on Tuesday 5 March at 7pm as they discuss planning for a future in private practice – one step at a time.

In this lively discussion, Practice Plan’s head of sales, Zoe Close, teams up with Wesleyan dental financial expert, Richard Ollive, and joint managing director of 543 Dental Centre in Hull, Chris Groombridge.

You may be one of many dental professionals considering a full or partial move from NHS to private dentistry, but the thought of handing back all or part of your contract is understandably a daunting prospect.

This webinar serves to explore some of the most common questions we hear from people as they embark on their journey towards private practice and talks about the options available to those considering this move.

Learning outcomes

  • I’m not sure I’m ready to give back my entire contract – is there a way around this?
  • Will the integrated care board make things difficult for me?
  • I’m wrestling with my conscience and the guilt of not working in the NHS – do you have any advice?
  • Is there a way to still treat those most in need?
  • I’m worried about the income gap whilst I convert from NHS to Private dentistry – is this worry unfounded?
  • What will happen to my NHS pension and basket of benefits if I leave the NHS and is there a way to replace these?
