What people are saying about GDPUK

Jennifer Pinder

"I work with people who arent generally in the loop about whats happening outside the 4 walls of the practice in dentistry. This forum has proved invaluable as a source of keeping up to date, and I often find now that when I get the Dental journals I already know a lot of the news ! Ive got clinical support, social support, personal support from here."

Mike Day

"I was approached by Tony back in 1997 as he was thinking of starting a dental mailing list. I think there were 10 of us at that time. It`s now grown to be THE influence within general dental practice & beyond."

Nigel Jones

"I always point VDPs to the site as a unique resource."
