Mentoring

We offer a completely bespoke tailor-made service depending upon individual or practice needs, in both clinical and non-clinical aspects.

Our mentors will speak to you beforehand (at no cost) to fully understand your needs and be able to create a customised programme for you. If you would our services, we will then send you a questionnaire to gather as much information from you for example your weaknesses, practice environment, materials, budgets. We will customise your plan based on your circumstances and fully understand restrictions in finances, confidence etc.

Following this, our mentor will travel to your practice (depending on distance and availability), bring any material or equipment necessary to show, help and support you in refreshing your skills. This will either be a half day or full day, depending on the needs and you could invite other people to be part of the mentoring programme (but maximum numbers apply to make sure you get the most out of your session)

Please note that we do not include mentoring for live patients. We would instead, spend the time ensuring you are up to date with the theory and practical aspects and comfortable in your surroundings to ask any questions without the pressure of having a patient in the chair.

After the visit to the practice, our mentor will compile a report of your session and any suggestions they have which will be sent to you. We will include any materials/ equipment/ learning resources that may help.
