Record numbers for 2016
Show in review
//27 May 2016
Nearly 2,000 people were welcomed through the doors at the 2016 Scottish Dental Show as the biggest dental event in Scotland continued to break records.
The 2016 Show, held for the third year at Braehead Arena in Glasgow, saw a 23 per cent increase in delegate numbers from last year with record numbers at the lecture sessions as well.
Two speaker sessions, Laura Wilson’s infection control and decontamination update and Christine Park’s child protection lecture, saw crowds of more than 300 attend and five other sessions, including Prof Mike Lewis’s two-part mouth cancer presentation, attracted more than 200 delegates.
There were then three lectures that broke the 100 barrier, including Ian Robertson’s resuscitation guidelines update, Aubrey Craig from MDDUS’s ‘Once more unto the bleach’ talk and Professor Tim Newton’s presentation on managing stress in practice.
All in there were nearly 50 lectures and hands-on workshops at the event, providing up to nine hours of verifiable CPD.
The CPD certificates are currently being processed and the online links featured in delegates’ registration emails will be live in the next week. An email will also be sent out to every delegate with the link and a reminder to download when they are available.
