Study Clubs and Courses

Composite Course

Last year Andrew helped run a composite (White filling) course, to a select group of dentists on the Isle of Wight.

The course was sponsored by Ivoclar Vivadent, a global leader in dental materials and innovation. Further lectures are planned for 2015 as well as some study leave to Lichtenstein.

Jaw Joint Course

Andrew, Steph and Liz attended a course in Cambridge in October studying jaw joints. The course involved advanced training in problems associated with how teeth come together such as grinding, headaches, painful locking etc….

These are surprisingly common problems in the population and can often be treated in the dental surgery.

Lichtenstein

Andrew and Ginny both attended a study conference in Lichtenstein at Ivoclar Vivadent Headquarters.

Here they benefited from the latest technique to place tooth colour materials in the mouth and we we’re privileged to receive a tour of the companies’ factory to see how the raw materials are processed to produce the final products to place in the mouth.

Perio Club

Laura and Andrew attend a local periodontal study club in Worthing four times a year. Unusual cases of gum disease and the latest techniques are discussed to help improve our services to our patients.

Sometimes specialist help is needed to tackle difficult cases. Gum disease is often present when gums bleed on brushing and can lead to bone shrinkage and tooth loss. If you are worried about your gums, talk to one of our team who can help you book in for treatment.
