Our first ever Dental CPD event down in the Ageas Bowl was a great success. Thank you to all who attended. It was an extremely valuable afternoon of talks and sessions that the audience of dentists, hygienists and practice managers and staff enjoyed.
Also, we would like to thank the Ageas Bowl for providing the venue for this event and both Neil Ballard and Lyndon Meehan who delivered exceptional sessions at the event.
Targeted CPD sessions for different areas of the practice:
Our aim for the event was to provide dental practices in the Hampshire area with core verifiable CPD hours (and some non-verifiable CPD). As such we targeted different sessions for different sections of the practice.
Paul Lubas’ session on ‘Medical Emergencies in the Dental Practice’ was targeted for all staff members working in dental practices.
Neil Ballard gave a fascinating talk on how to benchmark success in dental practices which inspired an insightful debate in the audience. He highlighted how some practices were able to charge different rates for the same services, how different practices worked different hours and still increased revenue and many of points. The Practice managers really valued this talk in particular.
Finally our keynote speech by specialist sport dentist Lyndon Meehan ‘The management of dental trauma within sport’ was aimed at the dentists. His talk was targeted at a high-level providing cutting edge, specialist knowledge of the prevalence of dental trauma in sport and how to manage the types of injuries sustained.
Future plans for more events:
Following the great feedback, we received from our attendee’s we are happy to announce that we will be holding more CPD events, not just for Dentists but also GP’s and sports medical professionals.
We learned a huge amount from running this event. We will use that knowledge to improve future events to make them larger and even more valuable. Our goal is to have a number of sessions and workshops running concurrently so all levels of staff in the practice can benefit. However, if you have any suggestions on the types of event you would enjoy please get in touch at email@example.com with your ideas.
Overall it was a great success and once again, thank you to all who attended.
