CGDent Midlands Study Club for Early Career GDPs

This study session on paediatric dentistry is part of the CGDent Midlands study club for Early Career GDPs, which aims to share expertise, experience and knowledge as well as encouraging discussion on a diverse range of topics within dentistry. Sessions take place every two months.

Deter, defer, silver and refer – The GDP’s tool kit for managing the paediatric patient 

In this session, we will highlight the importance of the GDP in the management of the paediatric patient. We will look at common clinical presentation such as caries and MIH, discussing the GDPs role in their management and when to refer.
