In 2023 the theme of the TC White conference will turn to Leadership and supporting the clinical practice.

Book Now Closing date: 10 November 2023


Each year the TC White Conference directs it’s focus on a different topical issue affecting dentists. In 2023 the theme of this hybrid conference will turn to Leadership and supporting the clinical practice.

The one-day conference will cover a wide range of topics to aid optimising the patient experience and promoting staff wellbeing and morale. We will be joined by leaders from a variety of working backgrounds to discuss useful ’tools’ for leadership in practice.

We are delighted to be able to deliver this event in both a face to face and digital format with interactive workshops, inspiring talks and poster competition, as well as ample opportunity to interact with your fellow delegates and speakers.

Workshop sessions

The afternoon diet of the conference will transition into a workshop element to aid kinaesthetic learners. You can join these workshops whether attending in-person or online, one workshop should be chosen at registration stage and will be filled on a first come, first serve basis. A brief gathered post workshop summary will allow all delegates a flavour of the key elements brought out of the workshops they were unable to join.

Summary of the workshops and intended learning can be found below: (Further information to be provided)

Workshop 1 – Basic Leadership Theory

Workshop 2 – Leadership in Crisis

Workshop 3 – Leadership in Change
