As a key pillar of the local community, Forest Dental in Loughton is a caring Family Practice. It has won awards for care and standard of treatment whilst being highly flexible and progressive but how do we do it?
Many factors have contributed to our success. One of the things that has kept us apart (literally and metaphorically) from other dental surgeries has been being a single partner practice. This may fly under the radar of most of our patients who find our clinic professional and well organized, yet extremely observant of care needs. Not only does it seem improbable that all of this could be orchestrated and maintained by a single practitioner, but the action of operating as a single practitioner allows Forest Dental in Loughton to take on the complex roles that it does.
With only one key individual responsible for the management of providing care and all aspects of recruitment, procurement and regulatory compliance, there is a great deal of agility to Forest Dental that you simply would not be able to find in a multi-practitioner clinic, and is completely absent from large corporate dental chains.
Simply, Forest Dental has escaped the trap of decision by committee simply by having no committee. This has allowed decisions to be made faster and more effectively than many organisations could achieve. A good example of this is Forest Dental recent commitment to reducing its use of plastics and avoiding single use plastics as much as possible in its supply chain; this is a rarity in medicine and even more so in dentistry but the commitment to do so is heavily based on the passion of Dr Sab Rana Principal, an only dentist who has driven the clinic to the point of receiving parliamentary level accreditation for its excellence.
And although much of this operates behind-the-scenes and is therefore unobserved by my Forest dental abundant patients, it is a business model that is well worth highlighting and receiving a little credit for and the resulting experience and excellent level of care our patients receive.
Flexibility in care
This flexibility is what has allowed us to operate so consistently throughout the recent lockdown as the implementation of any changes could be carried out immediately in our clinic. Due to the high emphasis in dentistry on hygiene, there were little modifications that had to be made to spacing out our appointments. We are very grateful for our regular patients who we have managed to serve with a minimal of delays.
This flexibility also extends to patients who may suffer from an aversion in dentistry, allowing us to amend treatment schedules in order to make any necessary procedures as pleasant and tolerable as possible. This includes providing booking appointments at precise time allowing you to minimise the amount of time you spend with ys, making the waiting process less strenuous.
