SRRDG conference 2017

The annual SRRDG conference is the pinnacle in the calendar for Restorative Dentists in the UK.

The organisers of this year’s meeting have worked hard to develop an exciting and interactive programme aimed to help trainees evolve their clinical skills, as well as their leadership and management skills. As the NHS continues to change, so does our role within it, therefore this year’s theme ‘restorative dentistry – sailing forwards’ aims to tackle the changing landscape of restorative dentistry within the NHS.

The programme for this meeting focuses on enhancing clinical skills and treatment planning complex cases as well as looking to the future of restorative dentistry with in the constantly changing and challenging NHS environment. 

We as trainees represent the future of restorative dentistry, therefore it is essential that our clinical, managerial and leadership expertise is developed early in our careers. To achieve this aim, this meeting will encompass a range of lectures, workshops and interactive panel discussions.
