Dr George Wright, Deputy Dental Director at Dental Protection will be one of the speakers at this year’s British Dental Conference and Dentistry Show in Birmingham.

Dr Wright will speak during the education session at the Enhanced Continuous Professional Development (CPD) Theatre on 17 May. His presentation will provide an overview of the dentolegal aspects of clinical record keeping, including case examples demonstrating where clinical records have helped and hindered defending patient complaints.

Dr Wright commented: “This is an important opportunity for us to understand what constitutes a dental record, and to explore why we do not always keep good records. We will consider some of the more common pitfalls and discuss practical tips to help improve record keeping.”

Dr Wright and the team will be at the Dental Protection stand E52. The British Dental Conference and Dentistry Show 2024 will be held on Friday 17 and Saturday 18 May, NEC Birmingham, co-located with DTS.
