EP41 Dental Recruitment – Interview with Gary Lincoln

In this episode, Mike chats with Gary Lincoln – Group Director of TXM Group. TXM Group are specialists in recruitment and consultancy solutions across the engineering, technology, and healthcare sectors.

Gary kicks off the podcast by explaining how he went from being a pastry apprentice to a recruiter. He then discusses how TXM Group started and what makes them different from other recruiters. Fun fact, TXM actually stands for The Extra Mile; as in Gary and his team always go the extra mile!

TXM entered the dental market at the start of 2022. They already had a healthcare division, but Mr Lincoln explains why after speaking to industry thought leaders and doing their own research, the company decided to set up a dental-focused arm.

Gary then highlights some of the challenges facing dental practices – particularly the current struggle to find and recruit the right candidates.

With many years of experience in recruitment, Gary shares his top tips for attracting, recruiting, and retaining talent.

Mr Lincoln reveals he’s passionate about developing people through coaching and mentoring. In fact, Gary is an accredited and practicing executive coach with a practitioner diploma and accreditation from the Academy of Executive Coaching (AOEC).

He’s also a mentor and the external partnerships lead at Women in Transport – a professional membership network advancing women in transport through events, mentoring, and networking.

Gary stresses the importance of why practice owners should invest in developing their teams through continuous education, coaching, and mentoring.

Stay tuned to the end for Gary’s number one piece of advice for anyone thinking about buying or starting their own dental practice.

This episode is brought to you by PatientBoost – The Business & Marketing Growth Consultancy for Dental Practices.

Last year, we phoned over 100 dental practices to understand how receptionists handle patient calls, and we were SHOCKED by the results.

Based on what we learnt, we put together the Dental Receptionist Greeting Script to help receptionists make the best first impression and increase the likelihood of turning a complete stranger into a patient.
