A note from our President…

November has been an incredibly busy month and I wish to thank Council for their continued hard work and dedication. Many Committees are extremely busy behind the scenes finalising events for our membership next year. The ECG are busy making plans to run two Masterclass events and the Education Advisory Committee are lining up a fantastic educational webinar programme for 2024, including a “By Students, For Students” webinar. As always, we shall continue to keep you updated on the website, by email and on our social media platforms.

We have our final Council meeting of the year at the beginning of December and I will be handing over the leadership baton to Professor Philip Preshaw. As you will have seen from the website, Philip has already organised the BSP Conference for next year, which will be held at the stunning Crowne Plaza Hotel in Newcastle upon Tyne, 9-11 October 2024. Newcastle is a wonderful city and I shall certainly look forward to attending as a delegate. Please make sure that you also Save The Date.

Although December is a busy month, I would encourage you to register for our final webinar this year, “Monitoring and Maintaining Dental Implants in General Practice” presented by Kathryn Mayo & Jenny Walker. Kathryn and Jenny are excellent presenters and it promises to be an interesting talk. Even if you can’t listen live, members can register for free and listen to the recording for up to 6 months after with CPD.

Finally, there are several opportunities in the newsletter to support research studies around the UK. Like the BSP, I am passionate about supporting research, so please take a few moments to complete the surveys if you are able to.

Have a great month ahead and remember to wrap up warm!

Professor Mike Milward
