What is Dental Practice CSR and why is it important?

We understand that want a successful, healthy and rewarding business. You know that doing the right thing pays in more ways than one. And you recognise that 90%* of your patients and team now expect you to do good as part of running the business.

A business that has mastered this challenge has addressed its Corporate Social Responsibility – or CSR. And because the ways that consumers and staff judge businesses have changed, it’s now a crucial aspect of a business that wants to build trust with patients, and attract and retain good staff.

The 3 pillars of CSR

People

Are you a value-driven business that proactively leads, communicates with, and protects the wellbeing of your team? Do you reward and remunerate fairly, and are you transparent in your pricing?

Environment

Do you do everything you can to reduce your use of plastics and single-use resources? Have you thought about energy usage, recycling and positive contributions like ‘walk to work’ schemes?

Community & charity

Are you committed charity and your community in some way? Have you made a meaningful commitment and engaged your team in the process?

How do I do it?

But how do you find time to tackle your CSR? And how do you know that what you are doing works, makes a difference and adds value?

Unsurprisingly, it can leave you feeling confused about what to do, or frustrated that your good intentions do not stand out in the way you deserve.

We want you to feel proud of the way you run your business, and rest assured that you are doing the right things, day to day.

What do I do?

To achieve exactly that, we have assembled some of the industry’s top experts in their fields to create a simple set of Dental CSR Standards that everyone can access and apply for to help grow their business.

Whatever stage you are at with your approach to social and environmental responsibility, there is a straightforward, practical standard that will help you to ensure you are covering the essentials and your business is recognised for it.

We want to help you feel proud of the level you have achieved and inspired to accomplish more.
