Unique to Clyde Munro, the Flying Start Programme provides an unparalleled level of support to dentists in the early stages of their career. It demonstrates the exceptional investment the group makes in its professional teams in order to ensure excellent patient care. This year, participating dentists have an exclusive opportunity to join a behind-the-scenes tour with leading digital dental supplier, Dentsply Sirona.

Investing in dentists and the future of patient care

Commenting on why this investment in early career dentists is so important to Clyde Munro, Jim Hall – Chief Executive Officer and Founder – said:

“The future oral health of our patients depends on us giving them the best possible care. The only way we can do this is by making sure that Clyde Munro dentists, particularly those in the early stage of their career, receive the right training and development opportunities, together with ongoing clinical support. This also gives clinicians the best possible start in what we hope will be a long and successful career.

“At Clyde Munro, we make sure that our young dentists get access to the training and support they need to fully utilise the new digital technology we have invested in across our practices. Digital solutions replace various traditional dental processes, making treatment more comfortable for the patient, more effective, more efficient and better for the environment. Technology also makes the sharing of information easier, enhancing collaboration between clinicians for improved patient care and better professional mentoring and coaching relationships.”

The Flying Start Programme is structured specifically to meet these and the other needs of dentists in their first few years after qualification. It covers a range of relevant topics, from the application of the latest digital and AI (artificial intelligence) tools, the management of tooth wear, dental trauma, and non-clinical subjects such as communications skills and sustainability in dentistry. There is also a spotlight on mental health and wellbeing, helping individuals to take care of themselves while caring for their patients. The course is constantly being reviewed and improved based on feedback from delegates, highly experienced dentists in the group and external sources. Advancements within the digital world are also considered so as to appropriately align the programme with the absolute latest digital developments.

A new one-of-a-kind opportunity

To ensure the very latest digital equipment is used in training and in practice, Clyde Munro collaborates with industry-leading companies, particularly Dentsply Sirona. This partnership has also created an exciting new opportunity for dentists taking part in this year’s Flying Start programme, as Jim explains:

“We are proud to be recognised as the leading digital dental group in Europe – we understand that embracing technology is crucial for the current and future provision of high-quality dentistry. This passion for digital dentistry led us to extend our partnership with Dentsply Sirona, who already supplies our digital scanners and we are thrilled to be taking the dentists on this year’s Flying Start Programme to tour the Dentsply Sirona R&D/manufacturing facility in Germany.

“This is a fantastic chance to view the future of dentistry and the very latest developments in dental equipment. To achieve this so early in their careers is particularly beneficial, providing a unique insight of how they can deliver the very best patient care in the future. They will be able to hear direct from the experts at Dentsply Sirona, ask their own questions and meet the people who are driving technological change in our profession.

“It will be a very special event for our dentists and I hope that it creates a real sense of excitement for the future of dentistry. I also hope they leave feeling confident that Clyde Munro will help them in every possible way to become all that they can be as dentists, through training and education, access to the latest technology and experienced clinical support.”

A network of like-minded clinicians

The Flying Start Programme is much more than a chance to be exposed to cutting-edge digital technology and advanced clinical skills. It also provides a community of dentists all in their early career years, who share many of the same concerns, challenges and ambitions. Jim adds:

“Spending time together on this course throughout the year enables our early career dentists to generate networks between like-minded people to support them, both socially and professionally, allowing them to connect with people across Scotland.”
