Dental Treatment and COVID-19 - PLEASE READ

Dear Patients,

On 25th March 2020 Sara Hurley (Chief Dental Officer England) and Matt Neligan (Director of Primary Care and System transformation) released their latest statement on the rapidly developing COVID-19 pandemic.

We would like to update you on how this will affect our service provision at Dentalcare Group. The guidance is clear that all routine, non-urgent dental care, including orthodontic treatments must be deferred until advised otherwise. We are still here to support you and your dental needs through this unprecedented time.

We want to take this opportunity to reassure all our patients that we take the spread of the COVID-19 in the UK very seriously. The health and safety of our patients, staff and visitors to our dental practice is our main priority.

Here at Dentalcare Group we will be providing all our patients with a remote service during normal working hours. Our dentists will perform telephone triaging for: advice; analgesia; and antimicrobials (if appropriate) . We will not be able to see you at the practice.

If it is not possible to manage your symptoms remotely, you will have to be referred to a Local Urgent Dental Care Centre. Details of these are currently being established in our area and we will update you as soon as we have further information.

We will use our best professional judgement in the triaging process and work collaboratively with our Local Urgent Care system, possibly volunteering our expertise where necessary to help meet the demands imposed on this new emergency service.

We would like to thank you for your support and cooperation in the interest of our patient’s health and safety. We will closely monitor this situation and will update all patients accordingly.

Stay safe.
Kind Regards,
Dentalcare Group Team

Practice Management Jobs

Do you have management experience?

If you’re ready for career progression, we have several job openings here at Dentalcare Group.

From Practice Coordinator to Area Business Manager, there could be a position with your name on it.

Ensure smooth running of the dental clinic

Would you like to ensure our clinic is efficiently run? As a CQC Registered Practice Manager, it falls under your remit to ensure our clinic operates smoothly on a day to day basis, whilst also delivering on key performance indicators.

In this role, you’ll be responsible for the management of the practice in key areas of finance, Human Resources, and health and safety. Clinical and information governance and stock control will also be a vital task for you.

An important member of our team, you’ll provide strong leadership to all internal stakeholders, demonstrating the right behaviours (in line with Dentalcare’s vision, mission, values and ethos). Leading by example, you’ll ensure the practice premises meet the necessary CQC requirements/standards too.

Our Dual Site Practice Manager job role, meanwhile, will oversee the efficient day-to-day management of two practices.

A heavily involved role, you’ll deliver against the company’s KPIs and split your time between our practices to ensure great service across the Dentalcare Group. You’ll work hard to follow and implement group policies and procedures and ensure that the team are aware of roles and responsibilities, too.

Practice Coordinator roles

For those keen to further their career in dentistry, our Practice Coordinator Role is worth considering. The right candidate will perform a high-quality reception and admin service to ensure optimum patient satisfaction. You’ll be contributing to practice efficiency, effectiveness and profitability, too, in line with the GDC guidelines and practice policies. Assisting the practice manager in the achievement of Key Performance Indicators (KPIs) for the practice, your role will be vital for the smooth running of the dental clinic.


Building strong relationships with our team

Our Area Business Manager Role is another consideration if you’re looking for a new position.

You’ll be responsible for and line manage to all practice managers in the region, while liaising with our central office for support. An exciting role, you’ll monitor and adapt a business plan to deliver the agreed Area Performance Objectives across each practice.

You’ll also build relationships with staff, thanks to regular one-to-ones.
