Dentistry Show London 2021 – “Excellent”

The Dentistry Show London 2021 saw live dental events return after nearly two years, and attendees took full advantage of the opportunity to finally engage with friends and colleagues face-to-face.

The organisers declared it “A fantastic start to the live events calendar, the Dentistry Show London 2021 was a massive hit with all in attendance – a very positive step in the right direction for the entire profession.

“Networking was top of the list and the atmosphere was buzzing with excited chatter and laughter as friends and colleagues were finally able to catch up in-person. The exhibition was full of activity and delegates were able to browse the 150+ stands for the latest products, technologies and training courses relevant to their role within the practice.

“The comprehensive educational programme was another highlight of the event, with many topics and speakers attracting full crowds. For team members, the Enhanced CPD Theatre was of particular interest, covering core CPD subjects and enabling attendees to refresh and top up their knowledge in important areas.”

Speakers

The spokesperson continued: “Chet Trivedy (top) provided an insightful session on the three Ps of medical emergencies – Prevent, Preparation and Practice. He demonstrated how these can be implemented in practice to improve dental team’s responses in emergency situations, increasing the chances of a sufferer’s survival.

“Jimmy Makdissi presented remotely and outlined the latest radiology and radiation protection concepts and regulations. Taking delegates onto the topic of oral cancer, Philip Lewis discussed potential symptoms and implored professionals to always “look for evidence”, rather than assume something was not cancer. He highlighted the importance of screening, advising that someone dies from oral cancer every three hours in the UK.

“Philip also stated that the examination begins as soon as the patient enters the practice, as non-clinical staff may be the first to notice any changes in their behaviour or appearance. He went on to explore self-examination and how this might be communicated to patients in the most effective way.”

Attendees’ reflections on the show:

Rachel McGrane from the Private Treatment Centre, enthused: “Really good show, really interesting selection of speakers. Impressed by exhibitors and excited to discover new products. I came with my team, it’s a good bonding exercise and great to have contact with the wider industry.”

Reflecting on the event in general, Nalin Karunaratne, a dentist with {my} dentist, noted: “I attended mostly for CPD and to find ways to upgrade my skills. I’m also here to purchase products and find courses. It’s always good to catch up on CPD and find ways to upgrade my practice and increase enthusiasm.”

G. Millman, Principal of Cavendish Dental Clinic, said: “This was a well organised show with a good atmosphere. I’ve seen excellent presentations and lectures.”

Uday Georgis, dentist at Cader Dental Practice, added: “I am really impressed with the show and surprised on how many exhibitors came this year after COVID.”

CQC, Decontamination, Resiliance

The Show also presented business and management-related topics. Victoria Marsden shared the CQC’s strategy moving forward, with Agilio’s Head of Compliance Alex O’Neill offering tangible ways in which to adjust protocols for the anticipated new style of CQC inspections. Decontamination in the practice and safeguarding for the whole dental team were also covered, while for those who had experienced a particularly hard time of late, Tracey Stuart’s lecture on how to build resilience among the team proved a hugely beneficial session.

Attendee Deki Bray, practice manager at Country Practice Dental Clinic, added: “The show has been really well organised. It’s great to see everyone safely and catch up with friends after so long. Really nice to get the brain working too.”
