Quotes

"In addition, as the number of complaints we receive is a key driver of costs, we are committed to examining why complaints are increasing and what we, and the dental sector, can do to reduce these."
On hearing of this award Stephen commented: "The clue to my feelings on receiving this is contained in the title of the award itself because I am deeply honoured to have been recognised in this way. The more so to join such a special and select group of individuals many of whom I know personally and who have helped, mentored and supported me across the years while we have all had the welfare of the FDI as our guide."
Jon Drysdale, an independent adviser with pension specialists PFM Dental , says: "The delay in paying his NHS pension was caused by the failure on the part of the corporate to carry out the necessary procedures when the dentist left their employment. The lack of communication about the delay made matters worse. I strongly urge all dentists applying for their NHS pension to check they are no longer listed on open NHS contracts – this is one of the many important points we make on our one-day retirement seminars.”"
Seminar coordinator, Jon Drysdale of PFM Dental, commented: "We have been running these seminars for five years and feedback has been overwhelmingly positive from the hundreds of dentists who have attended. Most dentists only sell their practice and retire once so getting it right is vital.”"
