In association with the Scottish Dental Study Club
The Scottish Dental Study Club is honoured to be hosting world-renowned composite master Dr Viktor Scherbakov from Russia on the weekend of 19-20 January 2019 for an intense, hands-on anterior and posterior composite course.
This will be his first visit to the UK, having lectured all over the world on the topics of composite dentistry and dental photography. The focus will be very much on practical exercises and demonstrations to be able to help mimic nature for highly aesthetic cases.
Topics discussed over the two days include shade selection, optical characteristics, creating effects in anterior teeth, anterior and posterior tooth anatomy, creating lifelike results and finishing and polishing restorations effectively. The course has CPDA approval for four sessions and also 15 hours of verifiable CPD.
The Scottish Dental Study Club was set up by husband-and-wife team Drs Tariq Bashir and Saimah Ahmed (pictured). They started this to help provide a networking opportunity and also to provide a platform for colleagues to bring along complex cases at evening study clubs and discuss with like-minded colleagues.
In addition to this, it was an opportunity to hear from leading colleagues in the profession and gain verifiable CPD. So far this year they have had Andrew Smith QC, Dr Hatem Algrafee, Dr Attiq Rahman and Dr Shiraz Khan present to the group. The next study club evening on 8 October will have Dr Jimmy Makdissi coming to Glasgow to discuss problems in radiology and CBCT uses in dentistry.
The study club continues to grow and is now hosting full-day courses in photography in October and November with the talented Dr Billal Arshad as well as the weekend composite marathon with Style Italiano team member Dr Scherbakov in January.
