Welcome to the Postgraduate Dental Programme. We have endeavoured to make the programme as interesting and varied as possible. A Dental Committee, made up of local GDPs and Consultants, meets regularly to discuss the forthcoming programme and we would welcome any comments or ideas you may have to improve the format/content.

To keep up to date, suggestions are always welcome from GDPs for new ideas for courses. Several of the courses being run this year are repeats of popular courses from last year or have been suggested by participants from earlier courses. Some of our speakers from last year also offered to run new courses for us this year and we are most grateful for their support.

The facilities at CMEC are excellent and so are the meals provided by Doctors Orders, our on-site catering outlet.

I hope those dentists who are “regulars” will agree that the centre has a very friendly atmosphere as well as excellent facilities and that they are always made to feel welcome.

Please note that ALL courses (including Hygienist Courses) must now be booked on the new Dental Training website – www.kssdentaltraining.co.uk. Once you have registered you can book as many courses as you would like.

If you have any problems please contact us on the details below.

Due to popular demand, some speakers have been invited back again because their courses last year were over-subscribed. Early booking is recommended.

If you are unable to attend a course, please let us know as soon as possible so that your place can be filled by someone else. Alternatively, we will let you know as soon as possible if a course has been cancelled, either due to the speaker pulling out or insufficient numbers to run the course.

Cancellation and Refund policy:

All cancellations must be sent in writing to the concerned Postgraduate Education Centre. Failure to attend the course on the day will be treated as late cancellation and will result in the loss of your fee.

Please see below for the late cancellation charges.

  • Up to 2 weeks prior to the course: no charge
  • 2-1 weeks prior to the course: 50% of the course fee will be charged
  • 1 week prior to the course: the full course fee will be charged

If you are required to bring any specific instruments/preparation, it will be stated in the course write-up or we will let you know beforehand. CMEC is able to provide a fairly comprehensive range of dental equipment, including motors, hand pieces and dental instruments for hands-on courses. GDPs are encouraged to bring their own familiar hand instruments and a protective coat.

Coffee will be available at registration (half an hour before the course start time) and it is important that you sign the Register. A coffee/tea break mid-morning and mid-afternoon is planned unless altered by a Lecturer.  Lunch is provided for all-day courses. Please advise us in plenty of time if you are vegetarian or have specific dietary requirements.
