Portman’s vision and values
Our vision is simple: putting patients first enables us to transform smiles and lives.
What’s the vision for Portman?
We want to represent great dentistry. We want Portman to be known for its clinical standards and its ability to look after people, and it’s about having the internal culture that represents that.
Corporate dentistry has previously struggled to build a good reputation, and Portman aspire to be the group that better represents corporate and clinical governance, supporting its clinicians to deliver great dentistry.
How big will Portman grow?
It’s not about being big; it’s about being the best. We’re successful, but we’re growing at a pace that enables us to continue to recruit the right people, and stay true to our vision and values.
How do you measure success?
We want our practices to grow. We don’t set out to cut costs, we look to grow turnover while managing fixed costs. We want to grow your revenue significantly ahead of inflation to drive profit.
However, if you just focus on profitability, you might use cheaper materials or reduce staff, and that’s not how Portman works. We focus on growing the success of your existing business, working around a model that already works well for you.
