Book now for the 2012 British Dental Conference

Booking is now open for the 2012 British Dental Conference and Exhibition: Your profession, your event.

Taking place in Manchester from 26-28 April, next year’s event offers an exciting line-up of expert speakers and training seminars, as well as a large exhibition and a full social programme.

The availability of a number of special ticket offers mean the event is more affordable and accessible for all than ever.
Highlights look set to include keynote speaker eminent pharmacologist and brain scientist Professor Susan Greenfield, exploring the relationship between science and business, a new demonstration theatre, and cross-industry learning sessions led by experts from other fields.

The Coalition Government’s dentistry Minister, Earl Howe, has been invited to share with delegates the latest news on the reform of dentistry in England.
An impressive array of clinical experts will also be a big draw for 2012. Those confirmed to speak include:

Dr John Kanca III, a private practitioner from Connecticut, USA, and a leader in the field of adhesive dentistry.

He has published over 50 original articles and abstracts in peer-reviewed journals and will be leading sessions on adhesive dentistry and composites.

Professor Helen Rodd, Head of Paediatric Dentistry at the University of Sheffield, and David Ricketts, Professor of Cariology and Conservative Dentistry at Dundee University, who will be presenting on the best approach to caries management.

Dr Lorenzo Vanini, a private practitioner from Italy and expert in aesthetic dentistry, who has developed a new colour determination system for dentistry and a special anatomic layering technique for composite materials that is now used at an international level. He will be presenting on aesthetic dentistry in anterior teeth.

Dr Robert Wassell, senior lecturer and honorary consultant in restorative dentistry at Newcastle University, presenting on occlusal pitfalls and how to avoid them.
The full and varied programme will allow delegates to collect all their verifiable CPD hours for the year in the course of three days.
And, of course, the day does not stop when the sessions in the conference and exhibition finish. Delegates will have ample opportunity to network and socialise at a drinks reception in the Exhibition Hall on Thursday, the Friday party at the Palace Hotel featuring the tribute band Killer Queen, and the black-tie gala dinner on Saturday at the Hilton Deansgate Hotel.
So that as many people as possible can experience the event, a free one-day conference ticket is on offer for all BDA members.

In addition, dentists who purchase a two or three day ticket can register a DCP to attend free of charge.

Finally, any bookings made before 4 February 2012 qualify for an early booking price.
Over 4,500 people visited the 2011 event and an even more exciting event planned for 2012.
