Finalists - Team Gold
Like many great innovations, it was the combination of motivation, opportunity and belief that proceeded the founding of Simply Dental. They were in no way reinventing dental services or delivery models; instead they set out to create a better client experience through having a very talented, engaged and motivated team.
In the process, Simply Dental has created a niche market in the delivery of adolescent dental services for the Capital and Coast District Health Board. The mobile dental programme is innovative in its engagement and delivery models, positioning Simply Dental as the leaders in provision of adolescent dental care in the Wellington region. This programme compliments the work at their Lambton Quay practice, where they apply the same principle to all clients.
“Building a high performance team culture in a small start-up business has taken persistence and determination,” GM Rachel Bridgeman says. “And we’ve reaped the rewards of our efforts; we’ve got a committed and dedicated team within a fun and competitive environment; a culture of challenging ourselves, each other and on-going improvement.”
Simply Dental received an IIP (Investors In People) Gold Award last year, just the second Gold award in New Zealand and the first time an organisation has gained a higher status accreditation at its first accreditation review.
