Book Now Closing date: 22 May 2021


Following the successes of our previous Top Tips Conferences, we are pleased to announce that Top Tips for GDPs will be delivered virtually in 2021.

This half-day digital Conference will examine current issues facing primary care practice and provide useful hints and tips along with concise take home messages for improving day to day work. The day will feature short, interactive presentations, panel discussions and question and answer sessions.

A variety of speakers from the dental profession will contribute, sharing established best practice from their respective fields. A wide range of topics will be covered, including: the role of the multi-disciplinary team in the management of patients with head and neck cancer, sedation, hot pulp, and fee claiming.

We are also delighted to welcome our Chief Dental Officer, Tom Ferris to our Conference.
