Practice Plan’s long-standing relationship with dental business consultant Sheila Scott is being consolidated with a formal training and advisory role
Sheila has worked almost exclusively in dentistry for more than 20 years and has helped hundreds of practices in that time, many of them on behalf of Practice Plan. She has contracted to work one day a week for the company and brings with her a wealth of experience, as well as academic qualifications in marketing and counselling and an abundance of training skills.
Commenting on her new official role, Sheila said: ‘Working with Practice Plan as a consultant over many years, I know we share the same working style and ethos, so committing to one day a week seemed the next logical step. It allows me the time and flexibility to continue to support other practices – NHS, private, mixed and those working with other plan providers.’
A presenter on the dental-speaking circuit, Sheila completed a sell-out workshop tour with Practice Plan covering the Health Focused Practice for Patient Care and Profit.
Nigel Jones, Practice Plan’s sales director, said: ‘The response we had to the workshop tour was extremely positive and, combined with the feedback we get from Sheila’s consultancy visits to our clients, makes it clear that her style and approach are very well received by a great many of the practices that choose to work with Practice Plan.
'I’m therefore delighted that we can take this next step in strengthening our support for Practice Plan practices without significantly impacting on Sheila’s ability to remain available for the benefit of the wider dental community.’
