Seminar for Dental Professionals
Thursday 17 September 2015

BAPS Shri Swaminarayan Mandir, London hosted a seminar for more than 80 dental professionals on Tuesday 17 September 2015.

Organised by BAPS Charities, the event was co-sponsored by Septodont and brought together a diverse group of dental professionals, including therapists, undergraduate dentistry students, general dental practitioners and specialists. It was recognised for two hours of verifiable Continuing Professional Development (CPD).

Guest speaker at the event was Dr Len D’Cruz, an experienced vocational trainer for the London Deanery. He delivered a lecture entitled: Would you encourage your children to become dentists? A view of the changing landscape of complaints, the GDC and the NHS contract.

Dr D’Cruz is also a General Dental Practitioner, Foundation Dentist Trainer, Dento-Legal Advisor, and Lead Lecturer in Dental Law & Ethics at the University of Bedfordshire. His lecture addressed the changes in the environment of litigation and complaints, and also explored the merits and challenges of changes to the NHS contract.

This was the third BAPS Charities dental event of the year and was very well received, with delegates sharing that they had gained a deeper understanding of the challenges within their profession.

Chandni Patel added: “This was another excellent evening and it will have a positive impact on the way in which I approach my day-to-day practice. I look forward to further events where our shared learning will help to improve the level of care we deliver.”

The evening closed with dinner and an opportunity for delegates to discuss the main messages from the lecture.
