Dental Care Ireland’s inaugural Dentists’ Education Weekend took place on October 9-10 in Dublin’s Mayson Hotel. Facilitated by Dr Jennifer Collins, Clinical Director at Dental Care Ireland, the group states that the weekend provided an opportunity for practical training, networking and peer discussion.

Dr Collins said: “For the first time this year, we decided to build on our annual training day and create an entire weekend event aimed at upskilling, reskilling and thanking our dentists for their dedication throughout the challenges of the last 18 months. Based on the positive feedback from colleagues, we aim to develop our education programme further in 2022”.

Speaking at the opening of the event, Colm Davitt, CEO, Dental Care Ireland, said: “At Dental Care Ireland, we invest in both our practices and our people for the long term. Since the start of the pandemic, our organisation has doubled in size. With 22 practices nationwide, it is the quality and professionalism of our team that sets us apart”.
