GID Managers Group

The GID Managers Group is open to anyone who manages a GID registered practice. This group is the smallest group within GID but nonetheless a very important group. Three full day courses for CPD and general management topics are organised throughout the year, one of which is usually a joint full day meeting with the GID Dentists group. The GID Managers monthly membership subscriptions and sponsorship from Dental Directory covers the cost of running the three GID Managers courses, so there are no additional fees for GID Manager members to attend, i.e. the GID Managers courses are included in your membership.

Courses are held in the Istabraq Suite or National Hunt Room 2 at the Cheltenham Racecourse, and include all refreshments and a 2 course hot/cold buffet lunch.

To join please complete the application form on line, and you will be sent an email with your website registration Username and Password once we have processed your application. You will then be able to manage your profile, course bookings, submit evaluations and print off CPD certificates on the website.

There is a £30 joining fee followed by a monthly subscription of £10/month collected by DPAS. The direct debit form and instructions are on the online application form.

DUE TO HIGH DEMAND - we are limiting the current bookings to GID Manager members only until we know how many places are remaining for other team members. We will look at running the course again later this year. Please email us if you wish to book additional places. A fantastic live theatrical training show for dental team members who work on reception. 'Reception LIVE' is a communication based workshop (with staged live role plays) from Laura and Michael, who demonstrate exactly how the words we use and the way we portray ourselves can either win a patient over or send them somewhere else!
