CGDent Midlands Study Club for Early Career GDPs – 21 February 2023

Tuesday 21 February 2023, 6.30pm-8.30pm, Solihull

The new CGDent Midlands study club for Early Career GDPs, aims to share expertise, experience and knowledge as well as encouraging discussion on a diverse range of topics within dentistry.

With sessions planned to take place every two months, the first session will be on the topic of endodontics.

The case-based discussion is limited to 12 people so sign up to avoid missing out! This is an opportunity to bring your most difficult cases and learn tips and tricks on how to better manage them in the future. We will ask you to provide some details of a tricky endodontic case that you have managed, to facilitate discussion.

The guest moderator will be Dr Joanna Batt. Jo is a Clinical Lecturer in Restorative Dentistry at the University of Birmingham and will be on hand to help discuss and treatment plan those cases that you may want advice on. You will be not only developing your practice but also providing the best care to your patients.

The study club is open to GDPs who have completed Foundation Training or PLVE between 2017-2022.

CGDent Scotland Study Day

Friday 2 December 2022, 9am-5.30pm (Registration from 8.15am)

Glasgow Science Centre, Glasgow

The CGDent Study Day 2022 featured world-class, headline speakers Justin Durham and Finlay Sutton. The event finished with Professor Jeremy Bagg’s Caldwell Lecture presentation on volunteering opportunities within dentistry. Delegates benefitted from six hours of enhanced CPDA, a three-course lunch and the drinks reception.


  • Professor Justin Durham: Tough, Maddening, and Daunting: is this a real-world clinicians’ view of TMD?

    There are data to suggest clinicians find Temporomandibular Disorders (TMD) challenging to diagnose and manage. This lecture will explore challenges in diagnosis and management of TMD offering practical and evidence-based suggestions to help address these so clinicians feel better equipped to diagnose, educate and manage cases of TMD.
  • Finlay Sutton: Partial dentures that function superbly and look amazing – “The fantastic Scandinavian Hygienic approach

    This lecture explored the construction methods and function of partial dentures which work like removable bridges, protecting the periodontium of compromised abutment teeth. It examined why well designed and well-made partial dentures are valid alternatives (particularly aesthetically) to implant supported restorations. Delegates also learnt the Scandinavian hygienic partial denture design system to cover all combinations of missing teeth which anticipate future abutment failure allowing artificial tooth additions onto cobalt chromium minor connectors of the denture later.
  • The Caldwell Memorial Lecture presented by Professor Jeremy Bagg and colleagues: The MalDent Project – Progress through Partnerships

This study day could be attended in person or virtually.

Alongside the study day programme, delegates were invited to visit the accompanying 30-stand trade exhibition. Free parking was available.
