The fourth-year students of the Dublin Dental University Hospital (DDUH) have come up with a fantastic initiative to raise funds for their charitable work abroad.
DDUH students will host a CPD event on May 17 in the Hospital to raise funds for DOVE (Dental Overseas Voluntary Elective).
Through DOVE, fourth-year Dublin dental students undertake dental voluntary programmes in developing countries, and perform free dental care for people in need of these services. The students travel during the summer of their fourth academic year to take part in this programme.
The speakers on the night will be Dr Kirsten Fitzgerald, who will discuss the fundamentals of paediatric dentistry for the GDP, and Drs Michael Freedman and Una Lally, who will give a lecture on the placement and restoration of zygomatic implants.
The night will commence at 6.30pm in the Common Room in the DDUH with a drinks reception, canapés and some great raffle prizes up for grabs. Lectures will commence at 7.00pm and finish at 8.00pm/8.30pm.
The cost of the evening is €50 for dental professionals and €10 for students.
The event is CPD verifiable, with two CPD points awarded by the Dental Council for attendance. So come along and gain some valuable CPD points, while supporting a fantastic cause! For further information, please contact Harriet Byrne at firstname.lastname@example.org.
