The British Society of Prosthodontics (BSSPD), the UK’s foremost dental organisation in the field of prosthodontics, has confirmed its annual conference at P&J Live over two days from Thursday 10th March to Friday 11th March 2022.
The annual conference attracts dentists from all over the UK to debate topical matters and recent advances in the fields of fixed, removable, implant and maxillofacial prosthodontics. The BSSPD has a membership of around 500, and is open to dentists, doctors and scientists with an interest in prosthodontics.
The theme of the 2022 conference is, ‘Challenging the Dogma in Prosthodontics’, with a line-up of acclaimed speakers due to scrutinise and debate some of the beliefs prosthodontists have had for many years. The well-known speakers will be given free rein to explore their topics at the conference and it promises to be engaging for specialists and general dentists alike.
The current BSSPD President is Dean Barker of Aberdeen Dental Hospital & Institute of Dentistry. Dr Barker says: “I am delighted to be hosting this meeting in Aberdeen in 2022. P&J Live is one of the UK’s newest conference and exhibition centres, with wonderful facilities. After the last 18 months, delegates will be assured of a warm welcome and the venue’s COVID compliant status and recognition will help to ensure a safe return to more normal times.
“Although the Granite City is towards the top of the map, Aberdeen’s role as the Oil & Gas Capital of Europe means that it is extremely well connected with frequent flights and direct rail links connecting all parts of the UK. We are lucky to have secured travel discounts with various air and rail companies to help attract delegates to the north-east of Scotland.”
Kim Stephen, Head of Sales - Conferences, Meetings & Banqueting at P&J Live, says: “We are delighted to welcome The British Society of Prosthodontics annual conference to our venue in Aberdeen next year. This is the first time the Society has hosted their conference at P&J Live and look forward to showcasing our venue and the wider region to visitors from all over the UK.”
