Developing Dental Leadership

PCC is developing training courses to support dentists to become leaders within their profession and more effective leaders in their own practices.

Making Prevention Work in Practice

The need for greater awareness and capability in preventive activity by clinical teams was supported by the production of Delivering Better Oral Health. PCC has developed a course to support dental leadership within practices and the wider health community by providing training for dentists, key members of the practice team, postgraduate tutors and oral health educators to become trainers in their own right. The course prepares them to train dental care professionals in the provision of appropriate preventive advice and the application of topical fluoride varnish as defined in the GDC Scope of Practice.

Further information including the outcomes of the one day training course and fee structure can be found here.

A successful course was ran in Telford and you can read more about it here.

Leading preventive periodontal healthcare and treatment in your practice

This one day training course introduces delegates to periodontal pathways as developed in Healthy Gums Do Matter, the national clinical guidance.

An interactive and information packed day goes through the classification of periodontal disease, the clinical guides and modified bleeding and plaque scores (now adopted by BSP) and the clinical pathways for patients.

The training day provides delegates with all the materials needed to go back to their practices, train their staff and implement the pathways.

For more information on either of these courses, please see the brochure below or contact our team on developingdentalleadership@pcc.nhs.uk
