Dental practices can be run privately, through the NHS or a combination of the both. Dental practices are usually run buy the Dentists themselves, however, generally there is a heavy reliance on a team which tends to be made up a hygienists, dental nurses and receptionists.

Creating a welcoming and non-threatening environment is also vital,this is due to the high volume of dental phobia that exists throughout society. Whether it be a product of a bad past experience or a general fear of pain it is up to every member of the team within a dental practice to make the process as peaceful as possible.
