A poetic bit of #dentistry #marketing from 1889, mentioning #Bradford #Dental Hospital, extractions for 6 pence and early dentures for 5 shillings.
How things have changed!

70 Today! Happy Anniversary to the NHS and a big thanks to the many people who work within it, both now and in the past.
Deep down we all love the NHS for what it has given to so many people over the last 70 years. We should be proud that it is still our first line of defence for health and wellbeing in the 21st Century.

Many practice owners have no real idea of how well the business is doing until they receive annual figures from the accountant a few months after the year-end. By this time you may be surprised to see that your turnover and, or, profits have fallen gradually over the year.
In addition to tracking turnover, it is important to watch some key figures closely to make sure they don't increase out of line with turnover. Those to watch include associate payments, hygienist fees, lab bills, dental materials and wages.
Simple, cost-effective and easy to use on-line accountancy packages linked directly to your bank account for ease of update are readily available, including QuickBooks, Xero and FreeAgent.
Here is an example for you to have a look at and try out for yourselves on a free trial: http://tinyurl.com/y9j622n6
Get in touch with any questions or if you would like to talk through the benefits and help with a speedy set-up.

Always important to let your patients know just how much is included within regular dental health reviews.
Here is an example of a flier I worked on with a client, which is shared with patients and used across social media to promote the benefits of regular attendance and demonstrate the value of dental health reviews.

More and more clients are discovering the benefits of understanding and being closer to practice finances.
I work closely with both QuickBooks and Xero, each of which offer great packages for small businesses.
You can find out more and try out QuickBooks for yourself here, or why not get in touch and let me talk you through the difference simple and effective monitoring of finances will bring to you and your practice.

For those who have not yet picked this up, here is a link to the new Data Security & Protection Toolkit, which replaced the previous Information Governance toolkit from April 2018 in anticipation of GDPR.

The Data Security and Protection Toolkit is an online self-assessment tool that enables practices to measure and publish their performance against NHS/GDPR requirements

All practices with NHS patients must use this toolkit to show they are practising good data security and that personal information is handled correctly.

The information also provides good evidence to CQC of compliance with "Well Led" criteria.

We like to think that every month is National Smile Month but between 14th May and 14th June it really is - Enjoy!

Good to see that tooth decay in 5 year old children is reducing but still way too high at 24%.
Education and ease of access to dental services remains key.
