    As a follow on from the COVID-19 lockdown, practices of all shapes and sizes have opened their doors, having faced different lockdown scenarios. This webinar incorporates business owner insights to provide practical knowledge and support needed to recover and drive the dental profession into 2021.

    This week, Spot On Business Planning and MediEstates are joined by Martin Woodrow, Chief Executive of the BDA, to discuss the different scenarios practices have faced and how best to adapt to the new and changing climate. As the solutions are not a one-size-fits-all, using superior and insightful planning derived from many years of detail practice analysis and modelling by Spot On Business Planning, practices can take action in their return to a new normal. This webinar focuses on the importance of putting theory into practice, empowering you to combat the current situation in a positive manner.

    Learning objectives

    • Listen to various experiences from the last four weeks and see how different practices have coped showcasing that not one size fits all
    • Understand how different charging methods for PPE could bridge the cost gap
    • Review methods that will be able to shorten your fallow time and increase hygiene
    • Consider what is required to run a dental business in the new world
    • Appreciate how to deliver change through leadership and planning
    • Introduce ideas on how to remunerate associates differently that is beneficial on both sides.

Andy formed Spot On Business Planning (SOBP) with a mission to transform underperforming practices and to help those looking to maximise their exit value. Using tailored financial models, Andy assists dental practice owners to make the right strategic decisions, and the talented Spot On team then works alongside practice teams to implement changes that double net profits within three years.

Today, working alongside Andy, she is instrumental in driving client profitability and delivering the exceptional service Spot On client’s enjoy.
