Specialist Zone

Due to delegate feedback, the Specialist Zone was introduced this year to house content designed for dentists who specialise in one of the 13 specialities or for dentists who are looking to specialise. The content will be kindly provided by a number of Britain’s renowned specialist societies as our Education Partners, whose stands will be close by the zone, inviting anyone interested in speaking to them further about specialising or how to become a member.

We will soon upload a full programme of valuable content, specially designed for specialist dentists, as well as CPD specific to your speciality.
