Event information

More and more NHS dentists are becoming disillusioned with the constraints and stresses they feel when running an NHS contract. In fact, our recent Dentistry Confidence Monitor survey showed that 77% of NHS dentists don’t see themselves operating in the NHS in five years’ time.

Are you unhappy working within the NHS? If so, our ‘Are You Ready to Break Free from the NHS?’ events will help you assess if you are ready to make the change.

We'll be talking you through...

  • The key factors that you need to consider when thinking about converting to private practice
  • How introducing a patient plan can replace your regular NHS income stream
  • What will happen to your NHS pension scheme and the different options available to you
  • The proven processes involved in making the move
  • How to communicate with your patients to ensure you achieve the right number of patients to sustain a private practice
  • How Practice Plan can advise and support you on your journey.
