Welcome to the 2014 Melbourne Dental School Continuing Professional Development program

A Message from the Director

Dear Colleagues,

I am pleased to present to you the 2014 Melbourne Dental School (MDS) Continuing Professional Development Program (CPD) and welcome you to the "e-cart" enrolment system. I hope you have enjoyed the new format for providing course information and enrolling in the MDS CPD courses. The e-cart has proven to be a fast and effective way to update you with our CPD program news throughout the year. The CPD unit will send out monthly e-mail blasts for those of you who wish to keep up-to-date with reminders of our course details. You can sign up for e-mail updates at here.

This year the CPD unit is pleased to announce several new programs. The first is "Mastering Techniques for Aesthetic Anterior Composite Restorations". This full-day course is to be held at the Melbourne Oral Health Training Education Centre (MOHTEC) and will offer practitioners the chance to understand the techniques that can be used to improve the aesthetics of direct anterior composite restorations. We are also offering a new half-day lecture program on “Essential Financial Management for Dentists”. This program is tailored as an interactive workshop and will focus on delivering practical solutions for the key issues that dental practitioners typically encounter in private practice.

Due to positive participant feedback we have extended our Periodontal Instrumentation program from a half-day to a full-day lecture and hands-on program to give participants more time and access to pre-clinical lab sessions and a new variety of equipment to work with.

For those of you who may have missed out during 2013, we are proud to offer once again, our most sought after programs in the areas of Periodontics, Prosthodontics, Orthodontics and Oral Surgery.

I cannot speak highly enough of our course presenters and would like to thank them for the wonderful job they do each year and for the time and effort they put into each course.  They bring a knowledge and wealth of experience that allows the CPD unit to bring you the variety of courses across all the dental disciplines.

I would also like to offer a special thanks to all our 2014 sponsors and thank them for their kind support of our programs.

Last but not least, thank-you to the Melbourne Dental School staff who run the CPD programs throughout the year. In particular, Sam and Elena in the CPD Office; Mario, Daniel, Elly and Sue who provide support during the many hands-on laboratory courses. Without the hard work of these staff the program would not be possible.

I hope you enjoy this years’ program and look forward to seeing you all at some stage throughout 2014!
