September 2019 
 
With children back to school, September is often a time of year when our thoughts look to the year ahead. It is the start of the new cpd cycle with the General Dental Council, so like you, we have just received our new registration certificates. Whilst this may appear like routine administration it is worth reflecting on the value of this registration. 
 
Dental technicians need to complete a range of cpd each year in order to keep their registration active. Each year sees new products, materials and techniques in the market and dental technicians will get early training on these so that by the time new products arrive with you the technicians are ready to answer your questions. 
 
I really enjoy it when a dentist finds the time to call us and ask technical questions about our products and processes, and whilst I appreciate how busy you are I would encourage you to make ue of the expertise in your dental labs by building a good dialogue with them as they are always happy to share their product knowledge with you. 
 
Some of the recent training I have done and enjoyed sharing with dentists includes: 
 
New product training with anti-snore/sleep apnoea manufacturers as we are always developing the range of products we offer. Next month will see the launch of another product in our range and I look forward to sharing this information with you shortly. 
New techniques on nucleus core build-up of crown and bridge work. Using different levels of translucency over each other to internally build characteristics into the main body of a crown. 
Photographic techniques for use with intra-oral technology which can give true colour representations so that colours can be shared more effectively between dental surgeries and the lab. 
So, at this time of year remember to ask your dental labs to supply you with their up to date registration certificates and MHRA number, as there is more to it than just some administration! 
 
As always, if you have any queries about this blog please contact me via our website or give us a call on 01937 588868
