What Our Attendees Say…
“It was absolutely phenomenal”
We’re at the Treasure Map Experience at Marketing Pirates of Dentistry. It’s day two. Yesterday we had a full day of absolute golden nuggets.
This is my eleventh, I’ve been to everyone, and I keep coming back because every year I learn something new.
We’re all buzzed up, my team’s all buzzed up. It was absolutely phenomenal. Great set of speakers, great set of people. What more can you want?

“Value on it, it’s pretty much priceless”
Just enjoyed the MPOD annual conference, here in Manchester. For me it’s three of the most important days of the year. We meet on the Thursday- because I’m part of the Roll, we’d be red group and have been for the last five or six years.
The Roll, would be red group for me, is one of the most important groups for the meet up because it makes me accountable for the 90 day goals. It gives me the chance to sit with some very privileged company really, with some great practice owners and business owners and totally facilitate a great day.
Like I say, you set your 90 day goals and then you’re accountable, and that’s what drives results. The MPOD conference then is a chance for me to bring all that team along for them to benefit and, I’m going to say absorb, the knowledge that’s in the room. Provides a real focal point for our calendar year and not only for us to reflect on what we have done over the last 12 months, but also what we’re going to do as a team moving forward in the coming 12 months.
It gives us great energy at the time of year when sometimes people have just finished post-Christmas, immediately, we’re into January and we go back and are charged. Everybody’s fueled up and ready to go.
So there’s huge energy amongst the team already, just from this morning’s session. It’s difficult to sort them in terms of value, it’s almost priceless to me. It’s really, really difficult to put something on it.
Personal development as well as business growth- our businesses continue to grow. We’ve now got 12 dentists, three hygienists, 25 staff working. So success, if it was just purely financial figures, yep, the practice continues to grow.
We had a record growth year last year. We were up 23% on the bottom line. Our EBITDA has continued to grow, it’s up another six percent from last year. Personally, just watching the people who have come now as the team, to the last- I think it’s four or five MPOD’s that we’ve brought the whole team to. Just to watch them personally develop as well, it’s phenomenal as well.
I think you can measure success in number of different ways, not just financially. So, being now, part of an empowered team that leads the decisions in the practice without me having to be there, is probably the biggest success I would say over the last five or six years that we’ve gone to.
Value on it, it’s pretty much priceless.

“changed our perspective on dentistry”
I’m Khalid Master. I’m a principal and partner at Bank View Smiles Studios with Thomas Sarpong. We’ve been MPOD members for about four years now. I think honestly speaking its changed our perspective on dentistry and certainly practice management ever since we had the fortune of meeting Cally and Tony in Birmingham a few years ago.
This is our fourth treasure map. A couple of times we’ve brought our whole team with us. This year is one of those years. I strongly urge any members that are out there, first of all people that want to become member, I think MPOD are the best things for your business. For those of you who are already members who come maybe as principals but not bring your teams with you. I really think your missing a treat. You really need to bring everyone. We did this last year when we brought select few and not the whole team.
When you’re trying to go back and you come back with so many ideas. Trying to relay them by converting of 16 hours of learning of tips and tricks. Trying to put them across in a lunchtime or in between patients, it just doesn’t work.
I think that often that you’ve got to be here to be able to be able to really appreciate that. I think for your team to hear it firsthand will bind your vision of what you want for your practice and your business. It’s not a strong sell. It becomes automatic. The best thing of the, that the members that bring all their teams on a regular basis, they’ll tell you, as will I, the ideas come from them.
I think that when they do it and they come up with the ideas and take ownership it’s so much easier for you as an owner or as a partner to bring your business forward. So, loads and loads of ideas as usual. We’re looking forward to today as well and I’m sure, we’ve got the time set aside on Tuesday where we’re all going to discuss everything as a team and hopefully put loads of things into action.

“I Love Coming To MPODs Treasure Map”
I’ve joined MPOD last year and this is my first treasure map in a glorious hotel in Manchester. In Hilton. It’s been a fantastic two days. What I’ve learned is … well there’s so many things that I’ve learned today and would like to implement. It’s about being a better you.
I’ve spent 19 years as a NHS dentist and doing the same thing over 19 years not knowing nothing about leadership, not knowing anything about how to communicate with people, how people relate with people, how to relate to patients, how to generate leads and build up a private list. Whereas this has given me the tools to do that.
I was coming from the angle of being a NHS dentist for 19 years and wanting to build on the private side. So far, it’s given me the confidence to do that. I know the things, the tools, that you need to do to become a better practice owner, and how to lead teams, and hopefully how to develop into a good leader. Because at the present moment, and for the previous 19 years, I didn’t have that. I didn’t even know you needed to do that.
So that’s what so far it’s taught me. It’s a slow progress of development that’s hopefully, in the next couple of years I can look back and this has been an instrumental moment in my life.
