I'm grateful so much energy is being put into staying in touch...
As a young fella getting such a buzz walking through the door of Glasgow Dental hospital in my Twenties, I couldn’t wait to be a Dentist. Over the last 25 years my dreams came true- The opportunity to treat patients help people, fix teeth, solve problems and become part of an amazing team built around solid healthcare.
Then as we all know, around about seven to eight weeks ago our foundations were under a microbiological attack. What should we do next?
So I’d like to take this opportunity to thank team SCED and the full team at Portman Healthcare for the way they have chosen to handle this. There’s been days where emergency legislation has arrived and then almost implemented on the spot. The Board at Portman have introduced at times almost daily webinars to keep everyone fully up to speed. There have also been kind donations to Portman Benevolent Fund to help those in dire straits at a time when individuals are challenged financially at home and yet still giving generously to so many charities.
Educationally the spring webinars have kicked off. I’ve enjoyed the first two held by our own Drs Arshad Ali and Abid Faqir- thanks guys!! And I look forward to ones approaching. In strange times like these, holding together as a team shows human compassion and forward thinking at its best. One of the best compliments the Portman team could have is -one of my friends who is a practice owner contacting me
“I hear Portman Dental Care are buying Air purifying units and PPE. Could you let me know what I should buy? “
So, to all of our team, I am grateful that so much energy is being put into staying in touch and to looking for a way that will enable us to safely work together once again for the benefit of our patients. Dr Scot Muir, Scottish Centre for Excellence in Dentistry, Glasgow
