There seems to be a dominant attitude that if there’s a wa ...

What people are saying about GDPUK


I`ve just had a `phone call from a company conducting a survey on behalf of the BDA. The survey was particularly interested in my use of the internet and what way I get my "dentistry intelligence" (new ideas, training ideas etc). When asked about the "most important source of dental information" I gave GDPUK as my answer; to be honest, I didn`t expect the response from the lady that I got: "Oh I hear that so much".
