Introducing our 8 brand new Advanced Oral Health Centres
At mydentist we are Restlessly Ambitious. We always strive to improve. We may be the market leaders, but were never satisfied. We are restless in our pursuit of quality, innovation and the best care. Everyone has a voice, and everyone can make a difference.
The centres, in strategic locations around the UK, have been developed around some of the dental chain’s leading complex implant surgeons and will act as training hubs as well as centres of excellence for patients seeking private dental treatments. The eight mydentist practices involved in the initial Advanced Oral Health Centre are as follows:
mydentist Oliver’s House, Tyne & Wear
mydentist Red Rose Wigan, Greater Manchester
mydentist Peel Street, Barnsley, South Yorkshire
mydentist Shiregreen Lane, Sheffield, South Yorkshire
mydentist Putney, London
mydentist New Road, Newtown, Powys
mydentist Station Road, St Ives, Cambridgeshire
mydentist Wimborne, Dorset
Although the practices will initially focus on dental implants the plan is for AOHCs to act as multidisciplinary referral centres providing the full spectrum of private dental services. A nationwide hub and spoke model will eventually provide all 600+ mydentist practices with an internal referral path for all patients. This will help us to continuously ensure our patients’ oral healthcare comes first. After all, nothing matters more.
Melissa Nicholson, Practice Manager at Olivers House said “Our patients are at the heart of everything we do, using more precise, less invasive tools and methodologies result in superior quality cosmetic and restorative dentistry which makes us very proud of the work we do”
Jessica Evans, Treatment Coordinator at Peel Street comments “I am very proud of the team and practice I work in. The new look practice and state of the art technology benefit our patients and clinicians alike. I take pride in offering an elite patient journey to mimic the look and feel of the practice”
You’ll be surprised at what can be achieved
We have invested in state of the art technology such as CBCT scanners and Intra Oral scanners and have also given the practices a distinct look and feel from our usual mydentist branding.
Siobhan Simpson, Practice Manager at mydentist Red Rose Wigan said “The Implant Surgeons could not be happier with the new CBCT scanner, they are happy with the clearer and better quality images, we are also getting great feedback from our patients regarding the look and feel of the practice…they love our new waiting area”.
Whilst not all of the new AOHC’S have all dental disciplines in at present, it is our intention to work towards this over the coming months. Initially, we are concentrating our efforts around the growth opportunity in Dental Implants as we have a huge level of interest from our patients. Furthermore, a lot of mydentist Clinicians are on a pathway to growing their skills to become Complex Implant Surgeons.
Nyree Whitely, Group Clinical Director at mydentist, said: “Patients are becoming ever more informed about the treatments available to them and, with cosmetic dentistry expected to grow faster than any other segment, we felt that now was the right time to begin rolling out our Advanced Oral Health Centres.
“Within these centres we can offer an extremely high quality patient experience while equipping clinicians with best-in-class digital technology and implants through our partnership with Straumann. We’ve also developed a sustainable training model with practical, academic and mentor support that will help dentists in all of our practices develop their skills.”
A Career to last a lifetime
We aspire to have the right career structure in place for all Clinicians the opportunity to grow and progress. One of the key principles of Advanced Oral Health Centres is to become a ‘hub of mentorship’ for Clinicians wishing to progress their career in implant dentistry. As a result, we have formed a strategic partnership with BPP University. BPP are the largest post graduate provider of dental courses in the UK and have a state of the art facility in Central Birmingham. We have developed an academic programme with BPP to support our all of our clinicians with an interest in Implant Dentistry.
Stephen Booth, Country Manager, Straumann UK comments: “We are delighted to be working closely with mydentist to help firmly establish high-quality dental treatment that centres around delivering a successful educational pathway for today’s clinicians whilst ensuring high-end treatments are easily accessible to today’s private patients.
“This affiliation further underpins our commitment to helping facilitate a first-class private treatment experience, as we focus on delivering the latest innovations across dental implants, biomaterials and digital dentistry. Together, our aim is to not only enhance the clinician’s treatment workflow but ultimately improve the patients’ quality of life.”
