First accreditation awards

The British Society of Dental Hygiene and Therapy (BSDHT) has announced the first awards under its new education accreditation scheme, which was launched at the Oral Health Conference & Exhibition at Bournemouth in November 2011.

The scheme aims to ensure a consistency of quality and standard for Continuous Professional Development educational material used by its members.

Sally Simpson, BSDHT president, and Michaela O’Neill, BSDHT accreditation lead, presented the first three awards at the recent Dentistry Show in Birmingham.

The awards were received by Caroline Thompson on behalf of GSK for its ‘Talking Points in Practice’ sessions on: Acid erosion; dentine hypersensitivity; and gingivitis and periodontal disease.

The BSDHT accreditation logo may be used for a period of 12 months but can be automatically renewed subject to compliance with terms of use specified by BSDHT.
