Accept no substitute – Dentistry ShowNews
Posted by: manpreet.boora 2nd October 2017
Webinars, blogs and the like have been a godsend for busy members of the dental team. Online platforms have allowed us to learn and network in our own time. This could mean taking a web-based course to increase your skills, or sharing tips about a tricky case via one of the many confidential forums. A keyboard is conduit for confidence that allows us to connect to a group of people at the same time and give considered, thoughtful responses.
Why bother attending a conference or exhibition when so much is available from the comfort of your own home?
If we take the issue of networking, the word itself conjures up images of formal gatherings where only the self-assured survive. But this is an out-dated image of what modern networking can be. Mingling over a coffee, or chatting with the person sat next to you in a workshop; these are the kinds of valuable engagement opportunities that a live event will give you. Social media can become an echo chamber – that is, people tend to seek out those whose viewpoints they largely agree with. At a professional event, you are more likely to meet with someone who challenges your thinking. You may even strengthen a relationship with someone you have been talking to via social media by meeting them at last.
The same applies for new products and materials. Viewing something online cannot compete to a hands-on demonstration. Being aware of the most innovative products in the industry will help you to stay competitive and offer the very best patient care.
Speakers are often some of the best reasons to attend live events. Being in a room full of likeminded people, feeling inspired – there is no better way to be connected to the industry.
For a live event that combines everything and more, save the date for The Dentistry Show 2018. It has a rich programme of eclectic and expert speakers and, alongside the training and education conference, delegates can visit the exhibition, showcasing the latest products and services over 400+ stands. Tickets are free, too!
Live events provide an unique opportunity for team building and personal development – the experience cannot be substituted by what online platforms offer. Put The Dentistry Show 2018 in your diary today!
The Dentistry Show 2018 will be held on Friday 18th and Saturday 19th May
at the NEC in Birmingham
