Whilst I am not the only dental professional who coaches, I am one of relatively few. My understanding of the environment of healthcare and the public sector helps to rapidly establish rapport and trust between myself and clients. I gain considerable personal satisfaction from using the skills of coaching particularly within the clinical environment and with clinical professionals. There is the added value of the ‘knock on’ effect to patients and the wider working team

managers for personal development, career development and remediation. An emphasis on individual
coaching but team coaching also a strength

In 2009, she opened Evolve Dentistry as a private squat in Portishead, just outside Bristol. In that time the team has grown from 4 to 17 team members and the practice offers a wide range of treatment including orthodontics, facial aesthetics and sedation to name but a few.

speaker – Jayne Sproson

Jayne Sproson

Jayne Sproson offers more than 25 years of experience in the dental sector, working successfully with around 1,000 principals and their teams.  An award-winning consultant, Jayne was non-clinical director of one of the first practices in the UK to offer an aesthetic skin clinic within a dental practice, as well as being one of the first registrants with the Healthcare Commission, the predecessor to the CQC.  In keeping with her innovative approach to care, Jayne invented the TCO role for her practice before the term was coined, and still prefers the job title Patient Advisor that she bestowed upon her beloved team!
After selling her Shrewsbury practice, Jayne established herself on the coaching and training circuit and then spent five years in Jersey with one client.  Now she is back on the mainland, she focuses on helping private dental practices, and aesthetic clinics achieve their goals – not just through coaching and training teams, but also by managing projects to completion when their resources and expertise are challenged.  Practices generally outsource to Jayne if they are looking to elevate operational performance, profitability, and quality of service.
Jayne has successfully converted many practices from the NHS to private, with a robust strategy including membership plans for retention of patients.  Jayne says the most job satisfaction comes from building high performing teams to achieve her clients’ vision.  This means ensuring their business plan, marketing strategies, systems, and the culture of the business are working in synergy.  Throughout her career Jayne has maintained an impressive reputation for service excellence and client satisfaction.
Jayne is particularly good at learning from her mistakes!  A self-confessed “recovering Control Freak”, Jayne’s new mantra for both herself and her clients is “Progress not Perfection”.
