The newest faculty at the Royal College of Surgeons of Edinburgh (RCSEd) has recently welcomed its 100th member as it celebrates a year since its foundation in August last year.

The Faculty of Dental Trainers (FDT) is the first of its kind in the UK and is a sister faculty to the College’s already renowned Faculty of Surgical Trainers, which was itself a first for the surgical profession when it was established in 2013.

The FDT’s 100th member, consultant in special care dentistry Ms Najla Nizarali, said: “I believe that a high standard of training and education is fundamental in producing excellent clinicians and high quality patient care, therefore, when I first discovered the Faculty of Dental Trainers, I was keen to be a part of it.

“Through this faculty, I hope that we will be able to bring together both recognised and less recognised dental trainers, so that ideas can be shared and excellence promoted. Not only does this promote our profession and sub specialities, it provides a forum to recognise achievement and share learning points.

“I look forward to working with other dental professionals and to further enhance dental education and training nationally.”
