The Scottish Dental Show is back.

Firstly, we would like to take this opportunity to thank our exhibitors, delegates and speakers for their understanding and support over the past two years. Looking ahead, ensuring the wellbeing of all our delegates, exhibitors, speakers and staff will be our top priority.

The new management at our venue, Braehead Arena in Glasgow, have in place a series of enhanced measures, including:

  • Requiring proof of vaccine status and a negative test result within 36 hours of attendance
  • Use of face coverings in certain areas
  • Availability of sanitising stations
  • Enhanced ventilation
  • Regular cleaning of the venue, with a focus on high touch point areas.

In terms of vaccination status, the Scottish Government has said that business events and conferences are exempt. However, as an additional reassurance to delegates and exhibitors, we are adhering to Braehead Arenaís insistence on proof of status and a negative test result within 36 hours of attendance.

In addition, the Dental Show team are working to host the event in a way that will minimise risk, including:

  • Increasing spacing in the exhibition area
  • Increasing spacing of seating in the lecture and workshop areas
  • Structuring the Education Programme in a way that will allow a safer flow for delegates transitioning between lectures and workshops
  • Cleaning of lecture and workshop areas between each session.

Traditionally, the two-day event brings people from far and wide to meet fellow professionals and find out about the sectorís latest developments. Voted a huge success in 2019 by visitors and exhibitors, we are working hard to make this yearís show a welcome return to in-person events for all.

With more than 100 exhibitors demonstrating the latest technology and developments in dentistry, up to nine hours of CPD, and more than 60 lectures and workshops from professionals covering a multitude of topics, delegates have plenty to see and do.

The show’s Education Programme, validated by NHS Education for Scotland, will feature dedicated streams on eCPD, Clinical Skills, Business & Management and Education & Training. Those eligible can also claim CPDA for any session where they attended two consecutive lectures.

The lectures are suitable for the whole dental team and will be delivered by expert speakers from across the world of dentistry, on a range of subjects including:

  • Oral cancer
  • Medical emergencies
  • Disinfection and decontamination
  • Radiography and radiation
  • Legal and ethical issues
  • Complaints handling
  • Consent
  • Regulation
  • Safeguarding children and young people
  • Safeguarding vulnerable adults.

From understanding the frequency of medical emergencies and how to manage them, through to recognising the signs of oral cancer, and troubleshooting sub-optimal images during radiographic diagnosis, the Scottish Dental Showís Education Programme brings you the best in continual professional development.

Delivering the correct sequence of actions during a paediatric cardiac arrest will be covered. Delegates will also have the opportunity to hear the latest guidance on infection control and decontamination, and how to apply it in the practice setting. The concept of non-technical skills, their importance in patient safety, and why they are essential for optimal team-working will be outlined. Adult support and protection and child safeguarding will also be covered.

Get an update on the patient complaint risks which could affect your GDC registration, find out where we are now on regulation of the dental team and about developments in GDC education policy, curricula and quality assurance. Our lectures are also scheduled to include an overview of the endless possibilities of modern-day composites in anterior situations.

There will be hands-on sessions on getting started in aesthetic medicine and an introduction to hypnosis and how it can be applied in dentistry, plus an introduction to the theory, patient assessment, treatment planning, and injection technique involved in non-surgical facial treatments.

Business lectures include the secret strategies that the most successful dental practices implement, buying and selling your practice, staying connected with practice valuations, the dental deals market, current tax issues impacting your practice, and ‘tips, trips and traps’ of buying and selling.
