BDA Northern Ireland Branch events: the year in focus

Led by Branch President David Hussey and the Branch Council Northern Ireland, our BDA Branch​ enjoyed a very successful year of CPD events during 2017​.

With high calibre speakers providing core lecture content and hot topics, we aimed to keep members up to date with latest clinical information and updates.

This year, we focused on the theme of gerodontology, and lectures included topics such as oral mucosal diseases and lesions in the older patient, the management of failing restorations for the older patient, and care for patients with hypodontia. 

The Branch also enjoyed several social events including ‘A night at the movies’ for a screening of the film classic, The Shawshank Redemption, and the biannual BDA Northern Ireland Ball at the stunning Merchant Hotel with fantastic food, music and surroundings. 

Our Young Dentists, Hospitals and CDS groups also worked hard this year to deliver a great programme for these dentists, offering both peer-led teaching events, and enabling valuable networking opportunities.

We’d like to thank our 2017 sponsors, Cannon Hygiene, Denplan from Simply Health Professionals, Santander, Oral B, M&D Financial Services, GSK, BF Mulholland, McDowell+Service, Dentech, Colgate and GCUK, as without them our CPD events would not be possible. 

We are looking forward to another fantastic year in 2018 so keep your eyes peeled for your Branch programme, and flyers in the post –and make sure your details are up to date on your MyBDA to receive email alerts from us.
