Dental implant body has more than 1700 members

Attending meeting of the Association of Dental Implantology in my role as secretary and treasurer.

“The ADI is a registered charity dedicated to providing the profession with continuing implant education and the public with a greater understanding of the benefits of dental implants”

Team meeting: progressive ideas galore

We had a great staff meeting tonight with fantastic input from the whole team.
Lots of progressive ideas as the clinic continues to grow and flourish.
We also had a fascinating lecture form our IT guru Ian Wilson who took us through the latest communication security and date software in use in the clinic.
Thanks team for your spirit and dedication in sticking with the discussions and training well after 9pm – after busy day’s work in the clinic!

June’s events: Keeping us on our toes

We’ve started the month with a lot of new activity.
A group of referring dentists visited the clinic to have a seminar about scans.
Our dental implant nurse Kasia and hygienist Jennifer are off to a course this weekend about dental implant maintenance and hygiene.
Kasia is also taking a course for dental implant nurses in our own clinic and will be lecturing to them on a number of implant related topics.

Scan insight: fascinating seminar for our dentists and referring dentists

The clinic was the setting this week for a seminar on how to look at CBCT scans.
3D scans are enormously useful especially when working with patients who are having dental implants. They provide us with a huge amount of information and can assist with very specific guided surgery.
The main presentation was by Neil Heath. As part of our team Neil is a specialist in oral and maxillofacial radiology who can specifically report on the scans when requested by either our own or referring dentists.
As well as members of our own team the event was attended by a number of our referring dentists who send patients for scans to the clinic.
It was a hugely interesting and fascinating seminar and we look forward to having other seminars in the clinic in the future.
