  • Wash your hands of responsibility

    No one can deny that modern technology has been a revelation in recent years. The use of it to improve diagnostic yields in radiography, to allow mainstream imaging in practice of aspects of dental tissues that we couldn’t previously visualise the same way  can only benefit our patients.

What people are saying about GDPUK

Ian Gordon

"The better it gets the more the DH and others go out of their way to critcise. An interesting approach to the open sharing of information"

Adrian Nalden

AFAIC Tony is up there with Martin Lewis. Indeed the GDPUK shortcut is right next to MSE at the top left of my shorctut toollbar. Without either, I would be much poorer and almost certainly not working here.  I simply could not have got where I am today without this forum.

Khalid Mushtaq

"I`d simply like to say a heartfelt thank you to Tony for this wonderful site, GDPUK. It is a source of invaluable unbiased thoughts and opinions. I have no doubt Tony invests much time to keep the whole process functioning brilliantly. "
