Ms. Eniko Simon

Pallas Dental Management Solutions
UAE

Eniko’s expertise and experience in practice management systems comes from many years of work experience within the dental business field in the UK and UAE. She completed her Business Management Diploma in the UK with UMD Professions, specialised on business of dentistry to enhance her expert knowledge in this field. Eniko is the founder of Pallas Management Solutions, a dental business consultancy in the UAE, that provides services to support clinics with Clinic Management, Patient Experience and Marketing Solutions. It became apparent to Eniko in the 4 years she has been based in the UAE that many dentists and clinic owners were searching to learn more about the business of dentistry. However, they had limited resources available. During her professional career, Eniko has realised that there is a lack of support for dentists to allow them to improve their ability to efficiently communicate with their patients and build loyal relationships. For this reason she founded Pallas Management Solutions, where her mission is to actively assist in the success of dental businesses and individual practitioners/ specialists in the middle east. She has been working with dental clinic owners and clinic managers on a consultancy basis, to educate how effective management can increase clinic productivity, profitability and reduce stress for clinic owners. Eniko strongly believes in creating Patient Cantered clinics, thus Patient Experience Excellence should be the foundation of all management systems. She is a keen educator on communication and patient experience. Eniko speaks publicly on a variety of Clinic Management and Patient Experience related subjects, broadening the awareness on the key points that are fundamental in the business of dentistry, as well as writing on various platforms. Eniko is a Patient Experience Leader and Educator, and member of the Beryl Institute. Eniko strongly believe in the importance of communication with compassion and its effect on treatment outcomes, and patient experience.
