EDUCATION

Overview

Lifelong learning is a core value for dental professionals worldwide. DENTSPLY embraces education not only in word, but also in action. We realize that learning is the root from which all innovation stems. Our commitment "For Better Dentistry" is fueled by a continual investment in research and development.

We choose to foster learning environments that promote the success of the dental industry and professional development, be they in-practice ‘lunch and learns’, hands-on courses with nationally and internationally recognised speakers or even online with the Resource Library opposite or through our dedicated CE webinar portal, DENTSPLY Academy.

We invite you to enhance your professional skills and clinical techniques by joining us on one of the many DENTSPLY supported events and programs available locally and nationally. Click on ‘Courses’ in the menu opposite to view courses available near you. Alternatively you can visit DENTSPLY Academy to register for one of our Live Webinar sessions or browse the on-demand archive to access over 70 hours of FREE, verifiable CPD.

Dental Skills 2015/16

DENTSPLY is delighted to be partnering with The Royal College of Surgeons of Edinburgh's Faculty of Dental Surgery on its prestigious Dental Skills Competition 2015-2016. The competition gives final year dental students, from dental schools and colleges across the UK, the chance to showcase their skills by undertaking a broad range of clinical procedures and compete for one of only 16 places in the March 2016 Grand Final.

DENTSPLY has strong links with UK Dental Schools and has been an active supporter of under-graduate and Foundation Year education for many years through initiatives such as the Foundation Dentist Scheme, Grant programmes and partnerships such as the RCSEd Dental Skills Competition.

In the 2013-2014 competition, Hannah Crane from the University of Sheffield was crowned the overall winner, winning an expenses-paid trip to the Chicago Dental Society’s Midwinter Meeting in February 2015. Second place was awarded to Lloyd Bovensiepen from Newcastle University and third place awarded to Manas Hamal from Cardiff University.
