The first Emsworth Dental Nurse Study Club evening was attended by 40 dental nurses who enjoyed a presentation by Dr Rupal Patel on Periodontology: an update for dental nurses.

The talk involved group work for the dental nurses attending which helped to 'break the ice' and focus on the topic at hand.

Organiser Mary-Anne Worthington RDN said: 'As I have had a lot of interest from local dental hygienists, the next CPD evening will be open to both dental nurses and dental hygienists. It will be held on 4 February at The Brookfield Hotel, Emsworth. The speaker will be Lt Col Neil Mackenzie, a maxillofacial consultant at QA Hospital Portsmouth. The talk will be on historical facial reconstruction from World War I to the present day'.

At the February event registration is from 6pm, the talk will start at 6.30pm and last for an hour and 15 minutes and the cost is £12 per person including refreshments.
