BSP Awards & Prizes
To reflect our commitment to progression and innovation, the BSP awards prizes for research into periodontology - both for undergraduate and postgraduate students - on an annual basis.
We were delighted to award the following prizes at our recent Annual Conference in Brighton:
Sir Wilfred Fish Research Prize – Ana Caetano
Fellowship Award – James Chesterman
Research Grant – Tanya Cerajewska and Cher Farrugia
Clinical Poster Prize – Mohsin Mughal
Research Poster Prize – Jelena Taylor
We enjoyed attending The British Dental Conference & Dentistry Show earlier this month. We met many of our members and recruited some new ones too!
Our President, Dr Mark Ide, gave a talk in the Specialist Interest Theatre to a packed out audience on the subject, “Periodontics in 2019 – What can you achieve?”
Paula and Tamsin kept Mark busy answering clinical questions, while they managed to distribute 2000 laminated flowcharts and other perio resources.
The BSPerio have produced a series of webinars which discuss and explain the need for the new classification.
Earlier this year, the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence invited organisations to register as stakeholders to assist in updating the NICE guidelines for a number of topics. It was agreed that the BSP would contribute to updating the guidelines for managing Type 2 diabetes in adults.
