Dental Protection expands its

by Guy Hiscott

Following the resounding success of last year’s events, Dental Protection is pleased to announce that the Horizons series will again be visiting Belfast on Thursday 20 September 2011.
The team-focused evening event provides a practical look at topics that are relevant for all members of the dental team.
Speakers Brian Edlin, Stephen Henderson, Jane Merivale and Alasdair McKelvie will be presenting at the evening events which this year will be entitled Choices.  

In a difficult economic environment, this is a challenging time for most dental health professionals. Regulation, scrutiny and accountability are increasing and change is all around us. This creates uncertainty and unseen risks at a time when economic considerations will also affect patients’ choices and their expectations of treatment outcomes. This seminar is designed to explain important facts, dispel some dangerous myths and provide powerful insights into several important areas of patient care that are also potentially important medico-legally.

Kevin Lewis, Director of Dental Protection, said: ‘We were overwhelmed by the response to last year’s Horizons events, and are pleased to be running more of them and visiting new venues. Our aim is to bring quality programmes closer to home for more of our members, and in that spirit this same programme has recently been taken to our members in 17 cities all over Australia.’
Including 2.5 hours verifiable CPD, the evening will also give delegates a chance to meet some of the Dental Protection advisory team face to face in order to explore the full range of benefits available to members.
Tickets cost £60 for members and £80 for non-members. Tickets for DPL Xtra Practices and their staff are priced at just £50 per person, and accompanying staff members (dental nurses, reception team and technicians) can attend for the nominal fee of £5 per person, when accompanied by a full-paying dental professional.

To be held at the Park Avenue Hotel in Belfast, registration will begin at 4.30pm, with the lecture running between 5pm and 8.30pm.
