Visit to BDTA Showcase

14 October 2010

Members of the All-Party Parliamentary Group for Dentistry (APPG) this week saw how technology is changing the delivery of care to patients at the annual British Dental Trade Association (BDTA) Showcase event. APPG members Sir Paul Beresford MP, Kevin Barron MP and Lord Colwyn had a private tour of the exhibition where they witnessed many of the new products on the market and learned more about the benefits of a multi-disciplinary team approach in dentistry. The parliamentarians were accompanied by representatives of the APPG for Dentistry stakeholder group.

The parliamentarians also heard from BDTA president Ed Attenborough on the history of Showcase, the potential challenges facing the profession during a recession and the impact of Health Technical Memorandum 01-05 and the Care Quality Commission registration.
