  • Denplan has sought out expert partners who have extensive professional knowledge and experience in the world of dentistry to launch a new series of webinars.

  • The four DEN (Denplan Expert Network) partners include Chase de Vere Dental, Knights plc, Lily Head Dental Practice Sales, and Lovewell Blake.

  • Having surveyed its member dentists, the top three areas of interest in further training requirements outside of clinical training were identified as legal aspects of being in practice, managing dentists’ own pensions and HR and employee wellbeing advice. The new webinar series is designed to tackle these popular training subject areas.

  • The webinars are free to attend and open to members and non-member dentists - participants can earn up to 1 hour of verifiable CPD.


Denplan has launched its Denplan Expert Network  webinar series which will include a total of 8 evening sessions from 7-8pm up until the end of September. All webinars will also be made available to view on demand.  The webinars are an opportunity for all dentists to learn from and collaborate with four different specialist advisors – all with extensive knowledge and experience of the dental sector.  

The webinar series targets the core business areas that Denplan dentists told us would have the widest level of training appeal to them.  The four most popular non-clinical training areas revealed by the Denplan survey were; legal aspects of being in practice (56%), managing dentists’ own pensions (51%), HR and employee wellbeing advice (48%) and Accounts and Tax (46%).1


The webinars will cover the following topics:


  • How to plan effectively for retirement (Chase de Vere)
  • Dental market evaluation summer 2021 (Lily Head)
  • An insight into the different ways of contracting with individuals (Knights plc)
  • Tax implications and employee benefits (Lovewell Blake)
  • How to maximise your practice value (Lily Head)
  • Managing your personal finances (Chase de Vere)
  • Exit strategies (Chase de Vere)
  • Mental health and wellbeing in the workplace (Knights plc)


Dr Catherine Rutland, Clinical Director at Denplan, part of Simplyhealth says: 


“Over many years, Denplan has built up a network of connections with professional firms who operate within the dental sector. The value they can bring to a dental practice, in terms of practical business advice, derives from their sharp focus on the dental industry.  After conducting some in depth research with our membership, we identified a clear need for more training in the areas of legal, tax, HR and employee wellbeing advice, and planning for retirement.  I’m delighted we are able to bring these expert partners together for a series of virtual events where I’m sure dentists will feel informed and engaged by the topics covered and will welcome the chance to ask practical questions on real and current practice and business challenges.”


Dentists can sign up and view the full programme and dates at DEN Webinars.  Further information can be obtained by emailing [email protected].
