Our programme

Our superb conference programme is designed by dentists for dentists and their teams, giving you the dental knowledge and insights you need.

The result of research with dentists and input from across the dental profession, our programme provides you with the latest thinking in dentistry, delivered by some of the best speakers in the business.

"Quality of lecturers reignited passion for my job where normal working under the NHS just crushes it.
It helped me remember why I trained and enjoyed the job."
