3D Head and Neck Anatomy for Dentistry – special promotion price

May 28, 2010 1 comment

3D Anatomy DVDHiggy and I are very impressed with the dissections and animations in this excellent package – so much so that we now recommend all our delegates to buy a copy, no matter what level you have reached. Even if you think you understand everything in this DVD we can assure you that you will learn a great deal from it, and you will have a very valuable tool for communicating with your patients.

We really wish we had had this sort of educational software available when we were trying to learn these complex, three-dimensional, anatomic relationships.

You can get a special discount of £20 if you enter “SDS” as the promotional code when you go to buy.

Link to the product is here. Read more…

Well, it’s a busy few days and wouldn’t you know it? The hottest weekend of the year so far. I’m right in the middle of it having been down to Stratford-upon-Avon on Thursday to meet the BSOS people for a meal, briefly to see Jeff Okeson (University of Kentucky) and Terry Tanaka (University of Southern California) at the BSOS meeting on Friday, where I met up with Peter Nissler who had just arrived from Los Angeles to teach on the final POS weekend, called in to see Hig and Chris on the way back to Saddleworth, spent Saturday and Sunday running the POS TMD weekend with Pete and now I’m off down to Poole for 2 days of the IRS course.

GSK Talking Points 2010

It might be election night, but the GSK Talking Points in Dentistry 2010 series is now well under way and visits Watford tonight, following Southampton and London earlier in the week.

Roy Higson, Mike Wanless and John Tiernan then move on to Falkirk, Newcastle, Leeds, Bolton and Solihul before finally finishing in Bristol on the 20th May, just in time for the big BSOS meeting of the year at Stratford-upon-Avon with Okeson and Tanaka.

If you don’t have tickets, it’s too late, they sold out weeks ago. Anyone going to Leeds will have to suffer sharing the place with 10 of our practice staff – do come over and say “hello”!
