The mydentist 2016 clinical conference

by Lee Waring | Jun 28, 2016

You may have noticed we went a bit social media crazy in June, as 10th - 11th June marked our 2nd mydentist Clinical Conference, and it went down a storm!

DAY 1 - delegates listened to presentations about the PAST, PRESENT & FUTURE of mydentist from members of our exec team, CEO Terry Scicluna, COO Annette Spindler and Clinical Services Director Steve Williams. In addition we were lucky enough to have keynote speeches from Col. Peter Jackson, Janet Clarke (deputy Chief Dental Officer NHS England) and representatives from CQC, Colgate and dental charity Bridge2Aid. Gyles Brandreth topped the day off sharing his ‘7 secrets of happiness’ and delegates left to get their glad rags on for the evening gala dinner and award ceremony, brilliantly hosted by Gyles.

DAY 2 - delegates had the opportunity to attend CPD sessions from a large range of dentistry topics, delivered by experts in their fields.

This year’s event saw nearly 30 different suppliers and sponsors exhibit at our trade fair and delegates took the opportunity to network and take a closer look at products which are available to order for their practice plus lots of freebies and a couple of competitions!

We were honoured to have a room full of prestigious clinicians and employees, 8 of which were given an extra special recognition in our 2016 Gala Dinner Awards...
