The Dental Producer Group

Now that my tour is over I really want to get my head around this concept again – UK dentistry is about to explode as an economic force and I’m becoming concerned that if I don’t do something soon – someone else will or the boat will pass us by.We asked 20 of our clients to attend a weekend retreat last September and they helped us to evolve a shopping list of services that small independent practitioners would want to compete with the “big boys”.
I invested £5,000 in that weekend, have that list and have done little with it since then.
I’m hoping that the next 10 days will give me a chance to move the project forward.
What’s in my mind is that, rather then trying to raise millions to launch a large organisation – we just make a start with a smaller group of pilot practices and evolve the company as we go along.
I’m looking for volunteers.
