Testimonials

Having been employed as a head dental nurse for many years, I'd reached a point in my career where it was 'make or break'. I was struggling to find a potential employer whom would take me seriously in wanting to progress into practice management and had numerous unsuccessful interviews. I found Glenys Bridges Dental Practice Management course online and thought I would give it a go. Little did I realise at the time of enrolling that this course would open up new doors for myself and give me the knowledge and confidence to succeed into practice management. As the course progressed, so did my confidence. I looked forward to my tutorials and the course is set out in a way which tackles each topic in an order which is easy to digest. I can honestly say that this course was the turning point in my career and I am now the proud practice manager of a lovely orthodontic practice. I love my new role and am utilising many things learnt in the course such as people management and business planning. I cannot thank Glenys Bridges enough for her support and feel very lucky to have had such a knowledgeable mentor.

The course was very specific and has a lot off new informations to me and I really enjoyed reading the notebook. * the high point was when I reach to know about the different types of management theories and the hierarchy theory. * I really gained a lot off new informations about the management styles and the main differences between management and leadership. * The tutor was very easygoing and as non English native speaker the tutor was very clear when she was explaining to me and in all classes that I had and she was happy to answer all my enquires. * I think I got all the support to finish my course with a good understanding and a good amount of knowledge. * I like to say thank you for your great support and care and I hope to join the next level of course as soon as I can.

Issa Al Husaini , Introduction to Supervisory Dental Practice Management

I have found the Team Lead Dental Nurse skills a really useful training course. Becki has been a great support throughout the course with regular contact sessions. Not only has she given me support and advise through the course but also on a personal level giving me examples and support on a real life basis within my job role. Which I found helpful during the first few weeks of me new position.

I am doing a Level 3 Advanced Diploma in Dental Practice Management with Rebecca Morris. I'm really enjoying the course so far, I am currently working my way through my second unit of work, after achieving 100% on my unit 1. The support provided by Becki every week is just brilliant, she explains everything I need to know in order to complete my course work. The regular phone calls keeps motivation throughout the process. I'm also finding the course is already taking effect in day to day work, which is extremely useful! Overall brilliant course and amazing tutor!

Yassmen Al lawati Sr. dental nurses ( conscious sedation), Introduction to Supervisory Dental Practice Management

The course was well designed with lots of content useful to lead dental nurses. Being able to work independently but knowing there was support in the form of course notes and tutor backup. Glenys was very accommodating -offering tutorials and very prompt feedback via email. I am already implementing some of the advice & information I received. I can not fault the support I received and would highly recommend it to friends and colleagues.

I thought the course was very informative and value for money. I feel much more confident in my role than i did before. I felt my tutor was amazing, she was so supportive of me and believed in me when i did not believe in myself. I would recommend this course to all dental nurses as its content and structure is faultless, and will give you the confidence you need to be a great leader.

The course is well laid out and practical in terms of the skills required for Practice Management. This has given me valuable learning in order to go ahead and have the understanding about how to tackle situations that arise in management. Glenys is always supportive and offers sound and easy to understand advice and guidance. I would recommend this course to anyone hoping to pursue a position in Practice Management or to support anyone currently within the role.
