The British Society for the Study of Prosthetic Dentistry (BSSPD) is one of the oldest of the specialist dental societies in the UK and was founded in 1953. The worldwide membership is approaching 500, and the society is always actively pursuing new members who have an interest in fixed, removable, implant or maxillofacial prosthodontics (technical terms for more advanced dentistry techniques). They held their 2010 annual conference at the Stirling Management Centre. This year’s speakers came from all over the world. I took part in presenting a poster to delegates. This involved a presentation of a particular area of my work to showcase the benefits achieved in a particular technique of cosmetic dentistry.
One of the highlights of the weekend was a dinner held in Stirling Castle – it was a fantastic opportunity to network and discuss the latest in the world of implant and cosmetic dentistry techniques.
