Can one use the following statement:
"Our practise makes yours perfect"
This is a play on words. I refer to "Our PRACTISE" as being what we do to help your PRACTICE (say medical).
I realise using "We practise" and "I practise" is correct, but can one use the word "Our" in the above example?

i have not understood the answers you suggested. please just tell me the right word among practice and practise in the slogan in my question
You've got that right!

I see exactly what you are doing and it works for me! I doubt many people who read would appreciate the play on words anyway.

As I understand it your slogan makes perfect sense grammatically speaking.
'Your Practise' is the what you do (a verb) to make 'their Practice (Describing a thing) perfect.'

Im sorry, i just wanna know how to use the words in a sentence.
As far as I'm concerned, you can't use 'practise' after any possessive adjective, eg. 'our', because practise is a verb and we must have a noun after a possessive adjective, eg. 'our practice.'

I also dispute the use of 'improve' and 'run more efficiently' in the same sentence without the additiona of another verb, eg. 'methods used to improve our dental practices and make them run more efficiently.'
The word following 'our' must be a noun, therefore 'practice'. If you want it to be a verb, change the phrase to 'We practise to make yours [practice] perfect'.

If "to practise" means to excercise in order to improve one's standard, I suggest that if the advertiser in this case wishes to state how accomplished he is, he's looking at using the wrong verb. He really means "expertise".

"Our practise" can also be expressed by "our practising" which is a noun. It's still derived from the same verb, however, and therefore is correctly spelt as such. If that's so, then in that context "Our practise" - i.e. our efforts at improving our standards - is also correct.

It still hints to the reader that the advertiser is still improving, and is not quite at a hight enough level of expertise yet!
