In collaboration with The British Dental Students' Association (BDSA).
Owning a practice provides huge opportunities in working independently, building up an enterprise, and practising in a way that suits the individual. However it comes with significant responsibilities.
This webinar is for any dental professional, including students, who wishes to understand what owning a practice entails, the joys of "being your own boss", how to prepare for practice ownership, and the pitfalls. The session will be presented by Dr Raj Rattan MBE, Director of Dental Protection, and introduced by Dr Abhi Pal - President of CGDent. Both of them have considerable experience in practice ownership, training of dentists and in dento-legal matters.
