One-stop shop webpage to support dentists during coronavirus

coronavirusDentists looking for resources and support during the coronavirus pandemic now have access to a new resource page created by Practice Plan Group.

The page is available to everyone. Practice Plan regularly updates the page to provide a one-stop shop for all the latest news affecting the profession.

It includes a frequently asked questions section for those with a membership plan with Practice Plan and DPAS. As well as blogs, webinars, videos and web-links that cover topics like employment advice, patient communication and mental health.

Experts and peers, such as Sarah Buxton and Simon Thackeray, provide advice and guidance. The site also provides access to important updates from organisations including the BDA, GDC, CDO, BOS and Apolline.

Dentists can also download a free letter template created by FTA Law to send to staff in relation to changes in their furlough status.

The biggest test of all

Nigel Jones, sales and marketing director of Practice Plan Group, said: ‘The coronavirus pandemic has created an unprecedented situation across the world. For those working in healthcare and/or trying to run a business, the implications are significant and could be far-reaching.

‘For dentists and practice owners there is a great deal of uncertainty about how to continue providing care for their patients, support for their staff (financially as well as emotionally) and security for their business for the future.

‘To help dentists and their teams navigate through this challenging situation we have created a webpage. It provides all the support and information they need in one place. We’re working with experts in the profession to keep it continually updated. It will help enable dentists to adapt quickly to any changes in advice from the government.

‘Dentists have always proved themselves able to adapt to whatever system they find themselves working in. This virus may be the biggest test of that skill. But we are committed to helping them during this unparalleled time to find a way through.’
