Implants and injectables set to show growth

According to Millennium Research Group (MRG), a market intelligence group in Canada, dental procedures such as implants and ‘facial injectable’ are set to show growth over the next five years in North America. The aesthetic and dental areas have consistently shown greater than average growth, according to MRG. Dental implants will show a growth of nine per cent and facial injectables 12 per cent, both driven by consumer demand for anti-ageing treatments.

BDA and GDC on collision course over title doctor

The General Dental Council (GDC) will put itself on a collision course with the British Dental Association (BDA) and most of its dentist registrants if it accepts a recommendation from its Standards Committee that dentists should not be allowed to use the courtesy title doctor. Despite the facts that large majority (90.4%) of respondents to the 12 week consultation on advertising believed that dentists should be allowed to use the courtesy title, it seems likely that the GDC will go ahead and ban it.

This site is a new home in 2008 for GDPUK. All shades of opinion, information and advice within UK dentistry are represented in this group.
 

GDPUK.com is for dentists and dental professionals to discuss all aspects of their profession, their practice and their business, centred on the UK. Subjects dissected have been diverse, from tips on simple techniques to guidance on buying major equipment, to discussions on the various practice management software packages, and of ongoing developments in British dental politics.

Moderated in Manchester, England by Dr Tony Jacobs BDS, the Group was started in Summer 1997, and continues to grow rapidly. Tony continues to work in his family general dental practice in Manchester.

GDPUK.com also publishes UK dental news, and has had many exclusive stories, as well as being able to publish the latest news relevant to dentistry before other dental news providers. In addition, in terms of reader feedback and involvement, when some publications get almost no letters to the editor, GDPUK has about 280 different members writing to the group each month, and they write an average of 2300 messages each month.

The group now has more than 2000 members, and attracts interest and sponsorship from major companies involved in the dental trade.

Readership is around 12,000 dentist hours per month [50,000 visits for an average of 13 minutes] and in 2010 this must exceed readership figures and hours spent of many paper based UK dental publications.

Advertisers can look forward to their banners being displayed thousands of times in a verified manner, to a targetted group of UK dental professionals.
