Regional meetings set the scene for international event

The organiser of the British Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry (BACD) Glasgow branch meetings believes that the academy’s regional meetings had really whetted the profession’s appetite for the forthcoming national conference in Edinburgh.

The BACD Conference 2016 will take place at the EICC on 10-12 November and feature an international line-up of speakers presenting on ‘The Digital Revolution’. And Tariq Bashir, who works at Visage Dental in Glasgow, believes the local BACD meetings have successfully set the scene for the main event in November.

In July, the Glasgow branch welcomed Dr Robert Oretti who spoke about hard and soft tissue challenges around implants, and similar topics were discussed at the BACD Edinburgh meeting in September, hosted by Dr Amit Patel. Tariq said: “Dr Oretti’s work is up there with the best restorative implant dentists in the UK and we were fortunate for someone as talented as Rob to come and speak to the group and share his clinical cases. I and many in the group have picked up lots of tips and tricks that we can use on our own patients receiving implant treatment.”

Previous Glasgow meetings have seen Dr Ian Buckle present on indicators to predictable dentistry and Dr Elaine Halley’s lecture on Smile Design, which was the group’s best-attended meeting ever.
