Don't just take our word for it....

  • “There's only so much you can learn from online education, but face-to-face communication, having products in front of you that you can play with. Try a matrix band on, put a ring on, and put a wedge in. Does it ping off? Why? Using the knowledge of clinicians and trader alike to help you iron out kinks in your daily workflow and also open your eyes as to what you can aspire to be in future. You have to get that hands-on experience in order to progress and it's great fun as well. The British Dental Conference & Dentistry Show Birmingham is awesome. I'm all for it.”
    Nikhil Sethi Director, Elevate Education
  • “It’s fantastic. I've bumped into four or five people I know and seen one of my trainers from nine years ago as well. It's an incredible place to network but also to learn about new technologies and software. We are all trying to become the latest dental practices with state-of-the-art equipment, so this is the place to come.”
    - Kiran Shankla Restorative and Aesthetic Dentist
  • “It's a really important event. Getting the profession together face-to-face is always nice. The ability to network, attend lectures and also speak to suppliers and stakeholders shows the really importance of the British Dental Conference & Dentistry Show every year. I'm here speaking on my own but I've come with the whole team and they're getting CPD and overall that makes it a really worthwhile trip for us to make as a practice.”
    Jason Wong Deputy Chief Dental Officer, NHS England
  • "The British Dental Conference & Dentistry show is so important. It’s networking, you come here, you meet people, you can see what's happening in dentistry right now. You meet colleagues, discover job opportunities, get recommendations for equipment and really pushing our clinics forward. A man is not an island, we need to work together and how are we going to work together if we don't see each other? The British Dental Conference & Dentistry Show in Birmingham is awesome"
    Dalia Hassoun, Associate Dentist, Wilson Road Dental Surgery
  • “The British Dental Conference & Dentistry show is like a big menu. You can choose from a big menu of topics that you need to update yourself on or the things that are most interested in. It’s an amazing platform with an amazing variety of opportunities for people. As speaker you can always hear that buzz of people, but actually that's okay because people are genuinely interacting and moving around and making the most of everything being under one roof. It is the ideal learning environment because you've got presentations given by people that know their subject. You can then go to the trade and you can align with what you have just learnt.”
    Iain Chapple Professor, Consultant in Restorative Dentistry, Director of Research Institute of Clini
