Apolline Ltd was founded in 2010 by two experienced clinicians with a vision to provide outsourced hands-on support solutions to dental practices with the aim of freeing them to focus on providing care for their patients.
Pat Langley and Jerry Watson are both dentists with a passion for making a difference and since Apolline’s inception have built a team with unparalleled clinical and operational experience of running successful, profitable, compliant dental practices.
In addition to our e-Learning platform for dental professionals, to provide the best possible service to our members and clients, the team has developed the Apolline Quality and Management framework; a set of 3 closely integrated web-based tools that provide an automated audit function, a task management function and a feedback mechanism. This unique set of tools is designed to ensure consistency and clarity and to facilitate a culture of continuous improvement.

Our online CPD training is written to the highest standard and peer-reviewed by some of the most experienced operators in the dental industry. We take pride in not only having the best-quality written material, but also in ensuring that our online e-Learning courses are practical, interesting and visually stimulating.

Pat spent the years immediately following graduation from Manchester University combining general practice with teaching oral surgery and remains to this day a partner in two practices in the South East.
In 1987 she joined Denplan as a founder member where she went on to become Deputy Chief Dental Officer whilst continuing part-time in general practice. At Denplan she was instrumental in developing their acclaimed quality assurance and accreditation programmes alongside their popular training programmes.
In 2003 Pat moved to Oasis Dental Care as Clinical Director, a role she held for the next 7 years. At Oasis she developed and implemented a much-praised and comprehensive bespoke clinical governance programme and, working closely with the operations team, was an integral part of the team that successfully won tenders to build new start-up practices.
Along with fellow clinician Jerry Watson she co-founded Apolline in 2010. Pat and Jerry also run the Faculty of General Practice (UK)’s acclaimed ‘Certificate in Appraisal of Dental Practices.
Jerry graduated with Honours from Guys in 1980 and went on to co-found a multi-award-winning dental practice in Peterborough successfully combining general practice with his passion for training practice teams in all aspects of practice and people management.
From 1992 to 1996 he was a director of and trainer at the highly acclaimed training company ‘Partners in Practice’ and in 1996 he became the only dentist to be an accredited advisor to Investors in People.
In 2001 he set about changing the way endodontics can be practised by developing the innovative Smartseal system that relies on the lateral expansion of a hydrophilic polymer to do the job previously reserved exclusively for gutta percha.
Jerry was instrumental in developing Apolline’s popular task management App and our much-praised patient and staff satisfaction surveys.
