8th Annual National Symposium, Dundee 2011

Filling the Gaps

Wednesday, 9 November 2011, West Park Conference Centre, Dundee

Over 100 practitioners, researchers, students and trainees gathered at Dundee’s West Park Conference Centre on 9 November 2011 to hear about the latest research in dental primary care and to contribute their ideas about future directions.

Margie Taylor, Chief Dental Officer, set the context for the day by outlining the role and potential of primary care based research within the Strategy for Oral Health Research in Scotland.  This was followed by a review of five major studies currently being funded by the National Institute for Health Research’s Health Technology Assessment programme, as well as a review and discussion of six themes for future dental research, involving electronic voting by the audience.

The day was well received with many delegates looking forward to the next symposium. One dentist Bruce Duguid committed his view to print [1] in Dentistry Scotland, and we are grateful to them for allowing us to reproduce the article.
