This one-day seminar aims to provide GDPs with the clinical gateway to practicing SAFE (Stability, Assessment, Function and Ethics) orthodontics, get the best legal advice, and learn when to refer. Clinical skills and knowledge are key of course, but in today’s dental environment they must be backed up with the processes to practice safely, within your competence and putting the patient first at all times.
The event is intended primarily for General Dental Practitioners, although anyone with an interest in orthodontics can attend.
