Scottish dental group Clyde Munro has invited a number of clinicians from across Scotland, and who have qualified in the last five years, to participate in a unique training programme.

The year-long Flying Start Programme - which launched in September - will see 30 dental clinicians receiving expert training from some of the biggest names in dentistry, providing them with learning and development opportunities across a wide range of topics.

Split into modules, the programme will cover management of tooth wear, dental trauma, digital dentistry, communication skills, as well as sustainability within dentistry and personal goal setting. The course will also feature talks from key opinion leaders such as esteemed dental coach, Ashley Latter, and experts from the multinational oral healthcare company, Haleon.

The clinicians involved in the programme will come together at a central location within Scotland allowing an exchange of ideas and sharing of experiences from practice. Throughout the course they will also receive additional online support.

This latest education programme follows Clyde Munro's dental nurse training course, the Strive Programme, which is now on its third cohort. This programme acts as an adjunct to its core dental nursing training and has been a real success with over 30 dental nurses now fully qualified who have filled nursing vacancies across the growing group.

The Scottish dental group continues to invest in its people and training facilities and is due to open a state-of-the-art Advanced Dentistry and Clinical Skills Centre in Perth City Centre, which is due to open in early 2023, bringing advanced training to clinicians and staff from across Scotland.
