Complaints to industry regulators require something to complain about but often also feature a breakdown in trust, poor communication and the feeling of wanting to right a wrong. Too often complaints are also motivated by a sense that the other party had a vested financial interest in the outcome.
The unique position of trust between dentist and patient, can make the experience of being “sold to” feel negative and manipulative, for you and your patients. There is an alternative that we have been sharing with dentists and their teams since 2009. If you would like to increase your treatment plan acceptance and talk about money, you will discover that “just a conversation” is all that’s needed.
“The absolute must to understand how patients think. This will help you express recommendations for treatments better, reduce the risk of miscommunication and associated problems”
“I know that lots of dentists are uncomfortable with the idea of selling to their patients. However, we all need to grow our businesses too. This workshop has helped me get the balance right, which of course benefits everybody. Highly recommended”
Frank Goulbourn, Bancroft Dentistry
“Brilliant -ethical! Will benefit patients hugely. I now have the right tools and concepts to speak in a way that patients can understand”
“I turned round 3 very nervous new patients who are all now going for big implant treatments, all by asking the patient questions, and most importantly listening and effectively engaging with them – A greatly recommended course!”
Steve Neal, Cotteswold House Dental Practice
“To me, this changes the game when it comes to dentists exploring how to communicate treatment to patients. It’s not about selling more fancy veneers or whitening, it’s about finding out what your patient really wants from you. This is what will keep out of trouble with the GDC. Selling is a dirty word in dentistry!”

Kevin had approximately 19.25 happy years of leading, financing and developing small businesses before he got bored for around 7 months and 12 days, threw away his ties and decided to ‘do something’ about dentistry when he noticed that his dentist didn’t have a website, seemed to make up his prices and never smiled.
Having interviewed hundreds of small business owners and set up businesses from scratch, he has a width of perspective and a depth of experience that he has been sharing in dentistry since 2006.
He has been steadily building a loyal group of clients and guiding them away from the painful mistakes that he has seen other regulated professions make. Through inspiration, direction and experience, he helps his clients lead successful dental businesses, with engaged teams and chairs full of loyal patients.
