So how does joining Dentex affect the lifestyles of those within our community? Here’s what a few of our friends have to say.
Dentex gives me time to focus more on life outside of work
The biggest impact for Belinda on reflection, was perhaps the decrease of pressure on her personally, and she says the weight off her shoulders was “massive,” “Before I worried the whole time. I still can't quite believe it!” With less time dedicated to running the business, Belinda was able to focus more on her life outside of work. She had started dipping her toe into the world of endurance sports.
Dentex gives me… support to pursue my ambitions to become the first dentist to complete a solo expedition to the South Pole
“There is a large and valuable network of people with wide-ranging skills at Dentex and I’ve been happily surprised at the offers of introductions and support, and the enthusiasm for what I am doing from everyone I have come into contact with. I feel that this has provided opportunities, such as collaboration with marketing departments, greater publicity and access to a wider audience, all of which will help in exposing myself to future sponsors.”
Dentex gives me more time for…. my family, and golf!
“Prior to joining Dentex, my time put aside for administrative duties was very hectic and full on. I could be sitting there all day dealing with different issues, emails, meetings etc. Now my non-clinical days are far more free and I have time to do non-dental activities. I have played more golf in the last three months than in the last 10 years!”
Dentex gives me more time for…. Sailing
“For me, it's been a qualitative change rather than quantitative. I’ve always made time for myself, but my whole being is calmer now. I'm less stressed - Dentex takes a lot of my stress away. Not having the financials to worry about, not having the HR to worry about. For me, it was those areas that caused the most stress - the dentistry I enjoy. I don’t feel so frantic about everything"
Dentex gives me more time for…. Art, and dentistry itself
"The nice thing is that Dentex frees me up to get on with the dentistry. It's a great relief to not have the responsibility of running the whole practice all the time. Dentistry can cause a lot of stress, but the best thing in the world is to compartmentalise it, take it in little bites and go and do other things that actually give you some joy in life.”
