Description

During 2019 we introduced Endodontics and Implantology into the program with great success. But we want to do more. Delegates have indicated that they would appreciate greater focus on the systematic approach to treatment planning and the incredibly important business of dentistry. This is why we have increased the 2020 program to include an extra full day to allow us to focus on these aspects in more detail. With these changes, we have further extended the program to cover the full scope of private dentistry, allowing participants to become more rounded practitioners.

Covering 8 modules over 5 full days, The Bridge Program 2020 aims to give young dentists the tools to bridge the gap between University & community service towards their new careers in private practice. Over the 8 modules, the young dentist will be introduced to the world of dental business; given tips on how to interact with patients and staff while learning how to build a structured treatment plan. The extensive clinical modules will incorporate the latest tools needed to perform clinical procedures with confidence. Making use of hands-on sessions in a small group set-up we will re-introduce the dentists to the latest techniques and materials, sharing the tips and tricks used in private practice.
