The Scottish Dental Study Club has been a much needed addition to Scottish dentistry. Providing regular CPD events for the dentists and DCPs in Glasgow at a convenient time and location for most. Not only are the events regular, the quality of the speakers they have managed to attract has been fantastic. As well as the lecture style events they are introducing an increasing array of ‘hands on’ training. I feel this is something in particular that is needed in Scotland. I haven’t managed to attend one of these yet but I am looking forward to attending one in the near future. At the study club events they also provide an opportunity to discuss difficult cases encouraging delegates to bring study models etc. This supportive environment is something that is important and needs to be encouraged in a profession where dentists can sometimes feel isolated and that they need to have all the answers.
