In September the CGDP team attended Continuing Professional Development courses at Cheltenham Race Course. These are provided by the Gloucestershire Independent Dentists Group.
Our Nurses attended a fascinating lecture about Forensic Dentistry. The speaker John, specialises in forensic human identification and in particular disaster management. He was heavily involved with identifications after the Asian tsunami where he worked as dental team manager in charge of all the international dentists, both in mortuary and reconciliation work. He was lead odontologist at the M5 motorway crash and was involved with the flight MH17 crash for which a police commendation for his work was received.
Our Dentists and Hygienist attended the Dental Radiography and Radiation protection course. This is a core subject which all Dental Professionals must complete every five years.
