When booking, you'll be able to reserve a place for yourself and one guest at the department activities. To ensure safe venue capacities, the department will be unable to accommodate any additional unbooked visitors.

Taster Lecture on Professionalism

Join this session for a fun insight into how we develop you not just as a clinician, but also as a professional.  We'll be taking a light-hearted look at some of the issues you might encounter, how we help you through them and what happens when Dentists get it wrong!
