Course Description

We have been running “Medical Problems in Dentistry” course for last 3 years and so far had 300 plus delegates on this course alone. The most common feedback we have is that the study day was not long enough and it should be 2-3 days event.

After listening to your feedback, we have decided to run this course in new format to give you in depth knowledge on various topics in medicine that has profound impact on dentistry and vice-versa.

On day 1 and part of day 2, we will discuss 6 common medical disorder impacting our body system ( cardiovascular, blood, respiratory, gastrointestinal, endocrine & neurological) and explore pharmacology, medicine & relevant drugs as we go along. This will enable you to risk asses and manage those risk appropriately to avoid any complications further down the line.

We will spend day 2 afternoon learning about expected management of these conditions in the emergency situation (Medical Emergencies and Resuscitation) (2.5 hours) and Oral Cancer (1 hour) will also be covered on that day.

This event will be highly interactive, plenary of questions and answers and in-depth discussions based on real possible scenario in general dental practice. The day will be relevant to all members of the team and we encourage team attending together to create good protocol for your practice.

Please note we are registering for VAT now and will be applicable for all bookings after 31 July 2019. If you book this course now, it’s £250 for 2 days (vs £360 after 1st August).
