Dentists Alert!
The meeting on September 12th will be held in the Centaur Suite. Building works are continuing next to the Gold Cup Suite so making that venue unusable. The Mouth Cancer Day is also in the Centaur Suite as advertised but we then return to the Gold Cup Suite thereafter.

Summer Update

Mouth Cancer Awareness Day and Update


Start 0800 prompt. GID Hygienists, GID Managers and GID members are covered by their subs. GID Nurses will pay £10.00/head. This to be collected via their group officers and not via the website. Please ignore any prompt to pay, this will be disappearing soon.


The website is currently being improved and updated. If you see any blatant errors please let me know. The joining instructions under sign up tab will be corrected in the next few days. The jobs section should now have the latest job first and there will be a drop off after 3 months. This free to use for members.


Again a reminder to register for courses and please inform me if you are unable to attend. The numbers attending these courses are large and the costs are commensurate with that so accuracy will keep waste and costs down.

Wine Tasting Report

After a most instructive day given by Jeff Rouse on the effects of sleep apnoea in dentistry, a quick change saw us regrouping in the Panoramic Suite for some wine tasting. Following tasty nibbles and yummy champagne the serious business began. Dental Directory provided some fantastic prizes for some random general knowledge questions.


Gemma presents Claudia Print with a sumptuous hamper. One table were way ahead in the identification of the fine wines and scooped a case to celebrate with. 


We then had the "mystery wine" competition which was won by Mike Thomson, husband of Sarah Mobberley. Here Anna Saunders presents him with the Nick Saunders memorial cup.
