ID Special - Covid-19 with Simon Thackeray

March 27, 2020

Hello listeners.

How’s your week going?

It’s all a bit strange isn’t it?

To help guide you through the current uncertainty, Colin and I have just come off a zoom session with the wonder that is Simon Thackeray. Here’s what we said, almost completely unedited. So apologies for the rather less smooth production that you might be used to.

iD - 013 - Recession Ethics

February 22, 2020

Yes your favourite UK dental podcast is BACK! 

This episode we look into what happens when we go through periods of uncertainty, both economically and professionally. 

Colin and Shaun look at why they both think that independent practice is the way forward and why leadership is vital in times of upheaval. 

Contains obligatory name check for Jason Smithson, indecipherable in-jokes and childish sniggering.

iD - 012.5 - GDC Strategic Update

February 2, 2020

As we were recording a few weeks ago, an email dropped into our inbox regarding the spending plans for the GDC in 2020. 

Here's our hot take on how our ARF is being used to improve dentistry. Or something.

iD - 012 - Future Dentistry

iD - 012 - Future Dentistry

January 18, 2020

Welcome to the first Incisive Decisive of 2020. This time we’re crystal ball gazing to see what the future of dentistry may hold. 

I wrote about this subject for my regular column in the BDJ. Read all about it here. 

We know this one's been delayed but Colin’s been building a new surgery and Shaun’s been trying to finish a Masters and neither of these leaves much time for podcasting. 

Who knew!

But we’ll be back more regularly with our usual mix of hard-hitting comment from Colin and self-indulgent dribble from me.

Yes, I know it's been a while. Blame Shaun for that. 

We hope you'll agree that it's been worth the wait, because we're back with a corker...

Fluoridation. Simple, isn't it? Add a drop of fluoride to the water. Less decay for people. Open. Shut. Or is it? Find out in the next half hour.

iD - 009.5 - Indemnity Update

Back with a very quick update...

Our indemnity episode provoked quite the response, not least from Neil Taylor and Vicki Holden from TDS (who we talked quite a lot about in the episode.)

Here's a quick update from Shaun and Colin to clarify a few points and correct a few errors we may have made in the episode.

As always, feel free to get in touch if you want to provide feedback.

iD - 009 - Indemnity

July 7, 2019

It's new episode time, and this time we avoid getting sued but talking about indemnity.

Discretionary or insurance based? Occurrence-based or claims-made?

We'd be interested in hearing from anyone involved in the indemnity industry to help clear up some of the confusion we discuss in this episode. Feel free to contact us via the usual channels.
