Dr Gregory Flint BDS MBA CMgr FCMI MIC FInstLM MIScT

Dr Flint has held a special interest in Dental Sleep Medicine since 2002.
He has attended training courses provided by the world’s premier international thinkers, researchers and practitioners in both sleep medicine and dental sleep medicine.

I also have a growing interest and reputation in dental sleep medicine, recently being confirmed as a speaker at the British Sleep Society conference (Brighton, 2017).

Philosophy

I consider myself to be privileged that people are willing to trust me; as such I am personally and professionally driven to provide an uncompromising approach to how I reciprocate. My role is to;

  • Openly inform patients of treatment options without showing undue bias.
  • Provide clinical transparency with regards to both benefits and possible disadvantages.
  • Share realistic timescales and financial information
  • Strive for excellent clinical outcomes through education and mentorship.
  • Seek to disseminate great clinical knowledge through the profession.
  • Align all the above with a warm and personal service that holds the patient at the center of decisions.

I believe that the soft skills of sound service/ business culture build ‘brand’ and promote ‘growth’ in a superior manner than any isolated marketing push. Dentistry and medicine are about improving the quality and longevity of our lives, so we must always look for long-term solutions and consistently seek to strengthen the integrity of our own provision and that of the profession as a whole.

In parallel, my personal development track has included business and management; established through my MBA, Chartered Manager status and over 15 years’ senior practice and clinical management experience.
