The FGDP(UK) North West Division has announced that its Study Day on Sunday March 27, 2021 will now be an online event. Broadcast live from the Science and Industry Museum in Manchester, the all-day event is open to all and provides six hours of verifiable CPD.

The Study Day focuses on ‘Perio in Practice’ and features speakers Ian Dunn and Serpil Djemal presenting ‘Contemporary periodontal practice’ and ‘Crash bang wallop – modern management of dental trauma’, respectively.

Ian Dunn is the perio lead for the Faculty of General Dental Practitioners and runs their short course in periodontics and leads the perio components of the FGDP Restorative Diploma. His sessions will focus on ‘Contemporary periodontal practice’ providing a modern understanding of aetiology, assessment and diagnosis, and looking at motivating patients to achieve high standards of home care to achieve non-surgical management of periodontal disease.

Serpil Djemal is actively involved in the acute and long term management of patients who have sustained traumatic dental injuries, and is also the founder chairperson of Dental Trauma UK – a new charity set up to raise public and professional awareness in the prevention and management of traumatic dental injuries. Serpil will present ‘Crash bang wallop – modern management of dental trauma’ – giving all members of the dental team a better understanding of the presentation and management of traumatic dental injuries with a focus on the management of dental fractures and the management of luxation injuries.

Alongside the talks, there will also be the chance to meet and chat with sponsors, other delegates and potentially the speakers live in a designated ‘reception area’ during breaks, lunch and the drinks reception.

The rates for the day are as follows:

  • FGDP members £199
  • Non-members £299
  • Retired dentist/technician/hygienist/therapist/DCP £149
  • FD/VDP/student £30
