Having support from Prime, especially during those early years of financial struggle and more recently with COVID has made the biggest difference to me. I love most the respectful and honest way Prime communicates with me and my staff. A skill that they have imparted to me and my team. In the end, I humbly say that even though I am a sole practitioner, with Prime I do not feel alone.

I have been a part of Prime Practice since 2007 and they have taught me skills that have helped me create a positive team culture through effective leadership communication and how to successfully manage a busy practice that is thriving both financially and harmoniously. When it comes to leadership skills and training, Prime Practice have amazing insights and tools to help everyone become a better leader. The staff are so passionate about what they do and they inject that pride and passion into their training!

Client Story – Dr. Gwendolin Flanagan
- Solo dentist and PD stressed from the financial responsibilities of owning a practice.
- Wanting to create financial security for her family and staff.
- To improve work life balance to ensure a long healthy life.
- Gwen was already working full time and stressed.
- To receive personal coaching support to improve her business. Specifically Gwen wanted to experience support and have her hand held, rather than going it alone. Recognised that she can become fearful; and knows the negative impact of stress, she wants to have a long life, and coaching will help moderate stress.
- To increase profitability. Start tracking production and expenses to understand trends and support creating profitability and security for her practice, her family and her staff.
- To help her team grow through the workshops and improve patient communications, appointment book control and have procedures written.
- To increase her case acceptance and treatment planning communication.
In 2020 Gwen successfully bought a property and built her own dental practice; creating a sense of control and financial stability for her future. During this time, Gwen has developed strong protocols around all systems of the business. The practice collections have increased by 35% over 7 years, and hygiene represents 20% of total production. The strength of the practice hygiene department has continued to develop over the last 5 years.
A Key to Gwen’s success has been utilising Prime’s resources to support knowledge and manage wellbeing. Gwen believes utilising every Prime training opportunity offered during COVID made a huge the difference to her business success and survival keeping the business intact and preventing it from falling over, ‘Gwen did everything Prime told her to do’.
Gwen reached out to utilise many of the services offered by Prime – Bethan Flood for HR, recruitment and trouble shooting. GDW for website design and support. Meg Sharpe for Infection Prevention and Control. Training and coaching is always a regular source of support for herself and sometimes her team to develop business growth.
Dr. Gwendolin Flanagan’s Transformation Journey
Goal Setting & Cashflow Projections
Coach liaised with Gwen’s book-keeper. Created an Annual Plan with daily production goals. Tracked goals and analysed with coach monthly.
Systems & Protocols
Highlighted the practice had opportunities to improve systems including – pre-blocking, cancellation policies, emergency patient protocol, active maintenance, patient reactivation system, and daily huddles – and implemented these. Workshops, coaching and adding Protocols to How-We’s supported the implementation.
Virtual Primespeak Training
Practice attended all Prime workshops and Primespeak. They embraced Primespeak and the Coach focussed on helping to create new patient exam process.
Setting up Hygiene and OHT department
A hygiene and OHT department was created at the time when the active maintenance program had grown too big for Gwen to manage solo. She was very nervous about having a hygienist as it was new to her, however trusted in Prime, and implemented hygiene department. We helped with recruitment. Hygiene production now represents 20% of total production and has reduced Gwen’s stress around patient management.
Website Audit & Consultation
Worked with GDW as a ‘pilot’ practice to move from a one page blog website to a professional GDW website which has been effective with offering patient communication. This has helped Gwen increase her confidence with updating patients – especially around COVID announcements.
Development of a strong client and team relationship with Prime Practice utilising coaches, workshops, trainers, HR Solutions, GDW. We created a trusted advisor relationship, supporting Gwen through new all phases of her business.
Progress and Result
Over time, it was clear Gwen needed to relocate from an unhappy landlord situation with her practice. In 2020 she successfully bought and fit out her own practice which has given her increased ownership of her destiny – eventually it will create strong profitability.
All Plans are designed for practices who recognise the power of combining workshops (to deliver content) with coaching (to customise the content and maximise implementation).
Whilst there are three Plans available, the most common Plan for most regular sized practices is the Essential Plan. You can always add services to your Essential Plan if and when the need arises.
One of our Consultants will work with you to determine your goals and clarify which Plan is right for you.
The Practice Plans contain a comprehensive mix of business services, coaching/consulting, and training. With over 25 years working with thousands of practices, we have a massive amount of resources available for our Plan clients. Success in any Plan doesn’t require utilising everything that’s available – your coach will guide you to which services and resources you need in order to reach the specific goals for your practice.
And if you decide a Plan isn’t for you, we can always create a customised package of services to suit your needs.
We always want the Plan to be valuable and worthwhile, which is why we don’t lock you into anything long-term. If the Plan isn’t working for you, we’ll do what we can to make it work. But if it’s really not for you, then all we need is 3 calendar months’ notice.
That really depends on where you’re starting from and where you want to end up. Some practices want to increase case acceptance and production, and in this sense, the Plan should very rapidly be a cash-flow positive experience. For other practices, the results are less tangible and more long-term, with a focus on more effective leadership and better team engagement.
