Perio RCS Edin. Chris is a Specialist Endodontist and Dhru a Specialist in Periodontics.

Alex Smithson BVM&S BDS(Hons) MRCVS, our President, spoke about the practicalities of local anaesthesia and nerve blocks.

Sam Hole BSC (Hons) BVM&S Cert AVP(EP) Cert AVP (ED) BAEDT MRCVS gave an interesting presentation on Equine Odontoclastic Tooth Resorption and Hypercementosis for our equine members.

Rachel Perry BSc BVM&S MANZCVS MRCVS explained how to promote ourselves, our services and our products. We all do this subconsciously but Rachel gave us ideas for a better targeted approach.

Overall an exciting and interesting day.  It of course also gave us all a wonderful chance to meet up with friends old and new, have our BVDA AGM, as usual, and to talk to our sponsors and see what products and kit are currently available.

Next years BVDA Scientific Day is on Wednesday the 5th April 2017. Come to Birmingham and join us.
