My special thanks go to those clients (and their managers) who have shared their personal experiences, in particular:
Trevor and Aaron Ferguson – West End Dental Group, Colwyn Bay.
David & Dawn Cunningham – Spring Grove Dental Group, Glasgow & Central Scotland.
Mark Skimmings – Dentistry on the Square, Glasgow.
Colin Campbell – The Campbell Clinic, Nottingham.
Shaun McClure, Raid Ali & Richard Vangasse – Restore Dental Group, South Wales.
