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".

Natasha Vadasz

The dentistry I do and the way my practice runs has changed so much for the better in the last year and its thanks to GDPUK. I have learnt more from the contributors here in the last year than in than 10-20 years of courses/reading prior to joining.
