Dental Showcase dedicates day to needs of trainees
With no other UK event attracting such a wide range of dental suppliers under one roof, there will be plenty that’s new at this year’s Dental Showcase at the ExCeL Arena in London on 4-6 October.
Whether you want to check you’re taking advantage of the latest advances in technology or want marketing or financial advice, all the leading players will be at your service.
This year, for the first time, there will be a specific day dedicated to foundation dentists. 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.
If education is your driver, then there will be no shortage of opportunities, whether you prefer the longer length lectures by keynote speakers in the Dental Update Theatre, or would rather dip in and out of shorter sessions in the Innovation Theatre. There’s a lot of focus this year on the NHS, with its landmark birthday, so maybe you want to learn more about what the government is doing to support dentistry. Sarah Hurley, CDO for England, will be talking each morning about the development and provision of NHS dental services.
Dental Showcase provides an invaluable opportunity to network. All key associations will be in attendance, so you can discuss matters pertinent to your community whether you’re a dentist, hygienist, nurse or practice manager. If perio is your passion, then talk to the BSP, or if ortho enthuses you, then the BOC will be on hand to support, listen and advise.
