A New Training Centre for Dental Practitioners

Dmitry Bykovsky
CEO of the UNIDENT Stomatologiya Group of Companies

The chain of Unident clinics has opened its own training centre delivering training programmes for all specialists working in the chain’s clinics. Today, Unident incorporates 14 dental clinics and specialized medical centres. The company has many employees and the new training site will provide for continuous professional advancement of practitioners and various medical specialists.

The opening of the center is a key milestone of our major dental project. We have our own call centre, our own dental technical laboratory, specialized medical centres and now also a training site. We have built a system providing the chain of our dental clinics with everything necessary to offer top-class services and care – in terms of care quality as well as patient service.

Technologies and treatment methods develop very fast in medicine and whether or not specialists and their work will meet the modern standards depends on how much specialists are willing and ready to acquire new knowledge. We see how quickly the equipment and devices that we use in everyday life get modified and updated – for example, smartphone manufacturers come up with new gadget options every six months. Surely, the technological development does not ignore the dental care industry. New equipment, new materials and new techniques come into use and we are trying to be quick in integrating them for our specialists and offer appropriate training.

Regular medical staff development is a top priority for our chain of clinics. Unident is one of the largest chains of dental clinics in Russia. All our units are required to meet uniform standards. Whichever clinic the patient comes to, he or she will be provided with care of a corresponding quality level. By now, the company has grown so much that it would be difficult to provide training without having its own training centre.

As more and more new clinics are opened, the company’s staff size grows. We are inevitably faced with the situation when the market lacks skilled staff to do administrative work and help our patients to feel comfortable in our clinics. This is the problem of many fast-growing companies and another good reason why we are launching this educational project.

We are creating an in-house training system for practitioners and organize also open events where we welcome all specialists concerned. Such events include seminars and workshops delivered by the principal medical specialists who work in our chain of clinics, engage in research and can share valuable practical skills. Some of the programmes, for example, implantology courses, have been offered for a number of years already. Now, most of the training activities are going to take place in our own training centre.
