He has worked with practices in all corners of the UK, from Scapa Dental Centre on Orkney to Meneage Dental in Cornwall and many others of all sizes in between in Scotland, Wales, Northern Ireland and England.

As a result of all his experience he knows a bit about how to maximise success in a dental practice! But he thinks his MAJOR strength is his enthusiasm and believes strongly that a dental practice SHOULD be a rewarding and fulfilling place of work - AND this can be self-fulfilling if EVERYONE in a dental practice accepts the responsibility to help and support everyone else! (IF people are also helped and shown, according to their position, how to do this)

See Happy Practices for a selection of case studies.

Rick Whitehead is the founder of Impetus Training and has been working with the dental profession for more than 20 years - practices, postgraduate and VT; dealers,  laboratories and groups.

He also strongly believes that team training should be an enjoyable and memorable experience for all concerned - and, whatever the subject of their course or workshop, practices always feedback that they had a lot of fun - as well as learning!

Now in his 70s Rick hasn't retired because he loves what he does - providing "Added Value" to peoples lives - especially dental professionals and their patients.

Though Rick hasn't held any courses or workshops or his famous tailor-made teambuilding events for practice teams since 2019, he has used the "opportunity" the covid pandemic has presented to transform all his original material into practical "Self Help" reference books and "D.I.Y." guides and resources which:

  • Practice teams can use for themselves during meetings

  • Rick can help them to do this remotely

  • Rick himself can use when he cautiously creeps out into the glare of the "new normal" to help practices (where, of course, they are comfortable with him joining their "bubble") !

For the books available go to Self Help Books -  for the guides and resouces go to D.I.Y.
