Are you an associate? Hearing Jamie’s story and what he is doing to prevent it happening again is an absolute must.

Episode 6 of the Dental Head Start Podcast welcomes Dr Jamie Workman.
Dr Jamie Workman is a UK trained dentist and serial entrepreneur. Jamie is working in private practice, started and multiple other ventures as well as having a special interest in Dentofacial Aesthetics and paediatric communication.

As a performer at heart, Jamie’s story is captivating while also packed with useful tips and advice. We cover a lot in this conversation and Jamie was generous to give us plenty of his time. So much that I’ve decided to split this one into two.

In Part 1 we cover:

  • Getting thrown in the deep end day 1 in the NHS. First day new graduate with molar root canal and half an hour for a bridge preparation – what a nightmare!
  • Travelling and how it helped shape who Jamie is.
  • Internal and external marketing,
    • A mindset to instantly improve your internal marketing
    • How and precisely when Jamie goes about asking for referrals.
    • SEO and how it helped Jamie build the last practice he was in.
  • Future proofing yourself as an associate from having the rug pulled out from underneath you.
  • Building yourself as a brand.
  • – explains for the patient in their language and the why of what we do
  • Personal development
    • Questions he asks himself daily: What made me happy today? What made me proud to be me?
  • Facial aesthetics and being an AADFA trainer and why he loves it.
