What's happening on Friday in the Dental Business Theatre?

As we’ve mentioned above, our focus for this year’s show is ‘Dentistry’s Hottest Topics‘. We’re hosting a day of insightful and thought-provoking sessions to help you survive and thrive in the world of dentistry, featuring many industry experts, including Eddie Crouch, Dhru Shah and Michael Bentley.

Here’s what’s happening on the first day of the show…

Friday 13th May: 10.00 am - 10.45 am

How to survive the staff retention crisis

To kick-start our theatre programme, we’ll be tackling one of the biggest issues facing dentistry: the staff retention crisis. Join Les Jones and the industry’s HR experts to explore how to implement strategies and incentives to help you retain your top team for as long as possible.

Friday 13th May: 11.15 am - 12.00 pm

How to future-proof your practice

The Covid-19 crisis has forced many practices to challenge and change their ways of working. Nigel Jones and the panel will discuss how you can adapt and adopt new business models and strategies to ensure your practice is as strong and sustainable as it can be.

Friday 13th May: 12.30 pm - 1.15 pm

The changing landscape of practice ownership

There are several emerging trends that are significantly changing the landscape of practice ownership. So, who will be the practice owners of the future? Iain Stevenson and a panel of experts will discuss these trends and explore the potential outcomes that may arise, and what impact these could have on practice values.

Friday 13th May: 1.30 pm - 2.45 pm

Is there a future for NHS dentistry?

NHS dentistry is in crisis, with huge backlogs in treatment caused by the pandemic, contract reform still unclear, and many NHS dentists feeling disillusioned, under-valued and ignored. Nigel Jones hosts a panel session that will ask the big questions around the future of NHS dentistry.

Friday 13th May: 3.15 pm - 4.00 pm

The growing mental health crisis in dentistry

Two years of living and working with Covid-19 restrictions has further eroded the already dangerously low morale and mental health of dental professionals. The mental health experts will explore ways in which dentists and their teams can take control of their wellbeing and improve their mental health and resilience.

What's happening on Saturday in the Dental Business Theatre?

Today we’ll be looking at the same five burning hot topics affecting dentistry. If you didn’t catch all of the sessions on Friday, come and join us in the theatre.

You can expect to see big industry names sharing their thoughts – Chris Barrow, Len D’Cruz, Chris Groombridge and Karl O’Higgins, to name but a few!
