Launching in January: New qualification for Dental Practice Managers

Have you progressed into the role of Practice Manager after being a dental nurse or receptionist? Have you received any formal training? Do you feel that you are lacking in knowledge?

Many Practice Managers have not had any formal training which can leave them facing a challenging role without critical knowledge of management theories and understanding of the standards required. This practical course provides individuals with an excellent foundation for being a successful operational manager. Conversely, there are practice managers that have not got a dental background who would benefit from a deeper understanding of the dental field.

This new qualification was created by the Trailblazer for Dental Health and Health Education England and incorporates management and dental units. It is delivered via our online blended learning platform via a combination of workshop/webinar training and workplace based assessments.

Cathy Vincini, Tempdent’s Quality and Curriculum Manager said, “We are very excited to be launching the Dental Practice Manager Apprenticeship in January 2018. The qualification will take individuals up to 18 months to complete and is a government funded course, offering a formal qualification for Dental Practice Managers. This qualification will include units accredited by the Institute of Leadership and Management.”

What are the benefits?

“There are many benefits to doing the course for both the practice and the individuals. The individual will learn about human resources, patient care, marketing, quality assurance and risk management. Whilst the practice will gain highly skilled employees who understand how to deliver excellent customer service and develop effective relationships” explains Cathy.

Why choose Tempdent?

“We  are the leading UK dental training provider and have been helping people achieve their dentistry dreams for almost two decades ” says Lorraine Nadel- Tempdent’s Managing Director.

“Our pass rates are consistently above the national average and our range of dental courses are taught by highly skilled tutors in a warm and friendly environment. All of our dental courses are highly affordable, and some are fully funded by the government. The quality of our dental training has been independently verified by Ofsted (grade 2), City and Guilds, the National Examining Board for Dental Nurses, The Institute of Leadership and Management (ILM) and The Skills Funding Agency (SFA) to ensure the continued success and quality of our dental provision.”  

Entry Requirements

In order to do this course, you need to be employed as a Dental Practice Manager and work for a minimum of 30 hours per week. You don’t require any previous qualifications; however, you should have sound knowledge of English and mathematics. You must also have regular access to a computer or laptop with speakers and good internet access, as you will be required to attend live webinars, access online material and prepare coursework.

  • Tempdent provided me with the most amazing help and support during my training. My assessor, Lynn really helped me through my course, she was very easy to approach. She had some brilliant tips and hits when it came to revising for my exams and I managed to qualify in just over a year which I do not think I could have done without such a great tutor. When I was really stuck on a project Lynn would make an arrangement for a support call where she broke down the project in a way I could understand what I had to do
