Glasgow celebrates 50 years of fellowship
Events to mark the anniversary are to be held at the college in June this year
The Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Glasgow (RCPSG) is celebrating 50 years of dental fellowship this summer with a series of special events.
The celebrations will begin with the TC White Conference on Thursday 1 June, which will tackle the subject of ‘Modern management of dental trauma’. Speakers at the event will include Dr William McLean, Professor Richard Welbury, Dr Robert Philpott and Dr James Darcey among others. There will then follow a celebratory dinner at the college to mark the anniversary with “food, fun and music”.
The next day there will be two parallel symposia – ‘Top Tips for Dental Care Professionals’ and ‘Top Tips for General Dental Practitioners’. The GDP event will see sessions on patient safety from Irene Black, ‘Predictable endodontics in general dental practice’ by Ross Henderson as well as gerodontology by Professor Angus Walls, ultrasonic debridement by Philip Ower and advice on being ‘orthodontically aware’ by Patricia Thompson. The final session of the day will see Kevin Lochhead discuss ‘Predictable dentures in general dental practice’.
Iain Buchanan (pictured), director of Dental Education at the RCPSG, said: “We are celebrating 50 years of fellowship this summer and I hope many of our dental colleagues will be able to join us for one or more of our events.
“Previously, college activity was traditionally more closely aligned with hospital-based dentistry but the RCPSG is now aiming to engage with the whole dental team and this is reflected in our range of events over the two days – the TC White symposium, Top Tips for GDPs, Top Tips for DCPs and the dinner in the college on the evening of 1 June.
“It will be a great opportunity for an update in key areas of clinical practice and to catch up with colleagues.”
