Calling the Whole Team
This October Dental Showcase takes place at London’s Excel (4-6 October) bringing together the best of our sector.
Now’s the time to freshen up your knowledge and skills with a choice of lectures as well as hands-on demonstrations. This year’s lecture programme includes topics identified by the GDC as “highly recommended to do as part of the minimum verifiable CPD requirement”. Graham Ramsden, for example, a radiation protection adviser and medical physics expert at Public Health England, will be explaining the new regulations on radiation protection. Medical emergencies will be covered by Esther Stephenson, a SHO at the Oral and Maxillo-Facial Surgery department of St.John’s Hospital, Livingston. Those requiring verifiable CPD on the early detection of oral cancer, should attend Dr Karishma Vijan’s lecture on mastering the primary guidelines for prevention and detection.
New this year is the Future Experience where you’ll be able to find out the scope of the latest digital technologies. You’ll be able to peak into ‘tomorrow’s world’ and review the next generation of dental equipment including 3D printers and 4D imaging. This event is going to be very ‘hands on’ and visitors are encouraged to take part in the scan challenge to be in with a chance of winning one of two 3D printers for the practice!
It’s Good to Talk
Dentistry can be quite an isolated industry. Skills, tips and advice can all be shared under Excel’s roof! You may be very content in your own practice and confident in what you do, but Dental Showcase is a great way to confirm that you are fulfilled, abreast of the latest technology and giving your best. Various associations and regulators will be in attendance, so you’ll have plenty of time to seek out any advice you may need. Sarah Hurley, CDO for England, will be talking each morning about the development and provision of NHS dental services. There’s also a specific CDO Zone should you want to discuss matters with Sara or one of her representatives. Whatever you need to know, Showcase is the place to find answers!
Let Your Hair Down
This year, for the first time, there will be a specific day dedicated to Foundation Dentists which is being sponsored by MyDentist. One of the keynote lecture theatres will be committed to the needs of trainee dentists. Topics will cover how to bridge the gap from DFT to Associate, organising your CPD, risk management, effective treatment planning and complaint handling. As well as formal lectures, there will be a specific Foundation Dentist Hub where you can get one-on-one career advice. The opportunities don’t cease when the exhibition hall closes, for there will also be a Foundation Dentists’ Ball on Thursday 4th October on the Sunborn super-yacht, which is conveniently moored alongside Excel London. Why not organise a reunion with your former students, where you can share your FD experiences?
