"My team of business development consultants are experienced individuals that have worked for many years in the dental industry. This provides our members with a reliable point of contact who are always on hand to provide support for the whole practice team. We are very aware that the future of the NHS looks uncertain, but with over 30 years’ experience, we have the knowledge to support dentists transition away from the NHS should they decide to."
