​This October, Dental Showcase takes place at London’s Excel (4-6 October), bringing together the best of the sector.

Now’s the time to freshen up your knowledge and skills with a choice of lectures as well as hands-on demonstrations.

Do you have a lot of elderly patients in your practice? If so, you might be interested in Paul Batchelor’s presentation on ‘Dementia-friendly Dentistry’.

Or how about Dr Gill Davies lecture on ‘Caries in the Elderly’?

If you’re more interested in paediatrics, then why not listen to Richard Leck, a lecturer in restorative dentistry from Newcastle Dental Hospital, who will be examining ways that we can safeguard children and vulnerable adults in general dental practice.

Whatever you’re interested in, there will be something for you and with over 300 exhibitors attending, they’ll be ample opportunity to ensure you’re up to date with the latest product innovations.


Dentistry can be quite an isolated industry. Skills, tips and advice can all be shared under Excel’s roof! You may be very content in your own practice and confident in what you do, but Dental Showcase is a great way to confirm that you are fulfilled, abreast of the latest technology and giving your best. Various associations and regulators will be in attendance, so you’ll have plenty of time to seek out any advice you may need.

Let your hair down

If you’re super-organised, you may have already booked your practice’s Christmas party; but that’s a long way off! Why not let your hair down at the end of the day and attend the ‘Boat Bash’ being hosted by Dental Sky on the Sunborn (docked conveniently outside the Excel centre) on Friday 5 October?

All profits from the evening go to the charity BrushUpUK. The evening will consist of two parts. The downstairs bar will have live music, canapés, a vintage photo booth, as well as charity events such as auctions and raffles. The second part of the evening will be in an exclusive bar at the top of the yacht, where there will be a casino night, complete with vodka luge!
