1300SMILES Ltd principally provides the use of dental surgeries, practice management and other services to self employed dentists who carry on their own dental practices. The company provides surgery facilities at over twenty locations in major population centers throughout Queensland. The administrative and corporate services headquarters are based in Townsville.
The services provided by 1300SMILES Ltd allow the Dentists to focus on the delivery of dental services rather than on the administrative aspects of carrying on their businesses, after all you are not delivering any dental services if you are stuck in the back office fixing the printer! The Dentists pay fees for the provision of these services under a dental service agreement with 1300SMILES Ltd.
The Dentist’s who use 1300SMILES Ltd services range from new graduates to experienced professionals in their 40s to senior figures in the north Queensland dental community. Several Dentists who use 1300SMILES Ltd services have special interest and experience in such areas as endodontics, oral surgery, and periodontics and cross refer work to other Dentists who use 1300SMILES Ltd’s services.
1300SMILES Ltd provides comprehensive services in the areas of marketing, human resources, administration, billing and collections, and facilities certification and licensing to all participating dentists. The company also provides all support staff, equipment and facilities, and sources all consumable goods using buying power which derives from such a large group of dental businesses.
In addition to being a service provider, 1300SMILES Ltd also itself provides dentistry services to patients and currently employs a number of dentists directly in its dentistry business.
The advantages of running your business from a 1300SMILES Ltd facility are that it preserves and enhances the best things about being a dentist.
1. Focus on dentistry
Use your expert skills as a dentist and leave the administrative chores to others. Take this freedom and decide whether to make more money for the same hours or to have more free time on the same income.
2. Enjoy the expert management
1300SMILES Ltd staff are experts in accurate, efficient, effective practice management.
You can conduct your practice with complete confidence that all of the back office functions will be completed correctly and on time. Staff scheduling is crisp and professional. You'll never spend your time rushing to find a replacement nurse or receptionist. 1300SMILES Ltd’s staff ensure that your business flows seamlessly.
3. Maintain your patient relationships
Your patients are yours, and you can build the sort of lifetime relationships which give your day-to-day life fabric and meaning.
At the same time, the scale of the company's operation is such that if one of your patients has an out-of-hours emergency, another dentist is rostered on to look after such calls, so your weekends and holidays are yours to enjoy. The large number of dentists using the company's services means that your ‘on-call weekends’ are widely spaced.
4. Interact with peers
One of the best things about life within the 1300SMILES Ltd system is the opportunity to have daily interaction with a wide variety of peers.
Dentists working from 1300SMILES Ltd facilities refer actively among themselves, allowing individual dentists to develop special interests.
Younger dentists have the chance to expand their skills, learn advanced techniques, and benefit from the experience of the more senior dentists with whom they are in daily contact.
Mature dentists have the satisfaction of knowing that their skills have been passed on to the same dentists who will one day look after their patients. This peer interaction is achieved without any commitment to a partnership or other equity arrangement.
