[Level 3 Treatment Coordination] I have learnt that by using clinical governance within my job role and audits I am continually making sure that I am working to the best standards and making sure the client is having the best possible dental experience.April M
I have really enjoyed this course [Level 4 in Professional Dental Practice Management]! Thank you.
I would like to say that my assessor Claire Angus was extremely helpful, easy to talk to and made my experience doing this [Introduction to Dental Practice Management] course great.
When I started my new role as a dental practice manager, which was in February 2014, I had very little skills and knowledge of running a practice, in dentistry, staff management, and budgeting. When I am at work I just went carry out the tasks without really knowing why I am doing them. However, whilst doing the [Level 4 in Professional Dental Practice Management] course, it has given me a better understanding what my roles and responsibilities are. I have learnt what it is and takes to be an effective practice manger, how to set up and monitor a budget, which is important to maintain properly. Also how important it is to have customer surveys, and how to act upon them. This course has been both challenging and rewarding at the same time. Also, whilst doing this course my confidence has grown. I’m confident that I will be able to overcome any obstacles that may arise. I can organise, both daily and long term tasks effectively. I am engaging with the staff more, listening to their views and suggestions, knowing that they too play a large part in running an efficient dental practice.
This intro course [Introduction to Dental Practice Management] has encouraged me to go forward with my studies, thank you Dental Business Academy
There was nothing in the [CPD Module 1 – Medical Emergencies] course that I did not like. I thought it was all very well structured and easy to follow. It was also very informative and has made me feel much more confident in knowing how to deal with medical emergencies.
[Level 3 Treatment Coordination] It had been a very long time since I had studied and I did not know if I could apply myself to sitting down and learning, especially on a computer. I was not very computer literate. I did not own a laptop so I had to buy one. This was the first time that I had a tutor that I had contact with via email and on a discussion board. Everything was new to me. I am so glad that I was given the opportunity to do this course, I definitely would recommend it. This course makes you understand everything about your job as a TCO and how it all comes together. What I am hoping to do is continually reflect back on the course now and again, keeping me up to date with my job role so I do not become complacent. I have learnt such a lot from this course. I am so glad I did it. I feel I have understood my job better and the legalities within it and I would like to think that the team and I give a better service now. Do not be frightened of learning and improving your skills, no matter what age you are.Jennifer M

I really enjoyed all parts of the unit [Level 3 Decontamination and Infection Control Lead] it brought to my attention some things that we need to change in the practice to make it better, and to make sure that we are learning the same thing … to change my day to day work to make the decontamination and infection control to maybe run smoother. I found all elements of the unit very helpful and I understand now that I will need to learn how to use PowerPoint to make sure that the learning process and teaching part is made easier for the team members and myself. I also want to thank Emma and Jan for being so helpful throughout all of my course. They made it much easier to complete and were always willing to help me with anything that I needed.Joanne R
