💁‍♂️Invaluable insight💁‍♂️ Dr Hussein Ahmed comments on his experience at a BACD Recommended Meeting he attended in Somerset last year: “This session covered a challenging topic for many young dentists – whether to restore teeth with direct or indirect restorations. I wanted to find out what factors influence this decision and explore the latest developments in adhesive dentistry. “The speakers were knowledgeable, approachable, and discussed a wide range of protocols to follow in practice, highlighting many of the errors dentists make on a day-to-day basis. They demonstrated their own clinical work and offered evidence-based reasons for implementing specific techniques. “The presentations were very interactive and plenty of discussions took place, emphasising the differing opinions of both the speakers and the delegates in attendance. This session instantly changed my clinical decision-making process, as it offered invaluable insight on improving the standard of treatment delivered to patients, particularly with regard to providing longer-lasting restorations. “I would definitely advise other dentists to attend BACD Recommended Meetings. These sessions enable you to update your knowledge and skills to further improve clinical care.” #BACDEducationalMeeting #EthicalCosmeticDentistry #BACD #DentalEducation #DentalNetworking #BACD2020
