Free CPD from your LDC!

Cobham Hilton Saturday 6th October 2018

This is a save the date for any member of a Surrey dental practice to attend a study day with sandwiches and refreshments at the Cobham Hilton. The day will be funded by your LDC from the statutory levy.

Many of you fulfil some or all of your CPD online. Our Protection organisations and the GDC hold the view that attending courses is a far more valuable and recognised way of learning and earning your CPD.

Following the successful format of our last study day we aim to appeal to all members of the dental team with a wide range of topics providing 5 hours of CPD.

So pop the day in your diary and we’ll post the day’s programme and registration details on our homepage soon, so keep visiting.

Mili Doshi Queen’s Birthday Honours

We are delighted to announce that Mili Doshi, Consultant in Special Care Dentistry at Surrey & Sussex Healthcare (SASH – East Surrey Hospital) has been awarded an MBE for services to dentistry in the Queen’s Birthday Honours 2018.

Mili undertook her postgraduate training at Guy’s Hospital and became a Specialist in 2009 when the specialty of Special Care Dentistry was first established. She was appointed Consultant to SASH in 2014.

Mili has been instrumental in building the special care service at SASH, updating clinical practice and introducing new sedation services that have reduced the need for treatment under general anaesthesia. She has widened the remit of her specialty to support key medical services at SASH, including the Remeo Respiratory Centre. She is also Consultant at the Royal Hospital for Neuro-disability at Putney.

A keen educationalist, Mili is Educational Supervisor for the SASH core dental trainees and spearheaded the work that enabled SASH to become an accredited sedation training centre. She is the audit lead for the Dental & Maxilllofacial Department at SASH.

Her work in devising and developing the innovative ‘Mouth Care Matters’ programme has received widespread publicity. Mouth Care Matters is a training programme for clinical medical staff in the management of oral care for hospital inpatients. Now under the aegis of Health Education England, Mouth Care Matters has been rolled out across hospitals beyond the South East Region. It has been shown to be a highly cost effective programme, benefitting patients by reducing both the incidence of hospital acquired infections and the length of patient stay.

Surrey LDC

The Chief Dental Officer congratulated Mili on her ‘well-deserved national recognition’ for the ‘inspirational clinical leadership’ which has directly transformed the oral care of patients.
