Members of the Cherrybank Team are travelling to Florida, to learn what’s new in dentistry.

The American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry was founded in 1984 and Dr Halley has been a member since 1998. It was at the AACD meeting in Orlando 12 years ago that she met fellow dentists Dr Chris Orr and Dr David Bloom and they decided to found the British Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry.

‘The Experiences we have gained at AACD have been highly influential in shaping the way we do things at Cherrybank Dental Spa – everything from customer service ideas to clinical innovations has been enhanced by travelling to the States.’

The conference is attended my 1000.s of dentists from across the world. The Cherrybank team have not attended for several years due to other education commitments but this year have decided that five members of the team should make the transatlantic trip. This is to ensure that we can attend a varied programme and learn as much as possible.

There have been many recent improvements in implant dentistry and the treatment of gum (periodontal disease) disease among other things. There are also fascinating sessions on facially designed orthodontic treatment including Invisalign and the use of bio active materials in dentistry. The trade show alone showcases companies from around the world to ensure that Cherrybank learns all the latest product availability.

Taking team members to an event such as this is obviously an incredible investment but experience tells us that our patients really appreciate our learning to stay at the forefront of research and development in dentistry and patient care.
