This edition of Modern Dentist Magazine focused on future expectations as we approached a new decade. I was able to include an interview with Dr Simon Chard, Dentist, Lecturer and voted one of the most influential dentists in UK Dentistry. Our conversation covered the digital dentistry revolution and how that is consequently changing the landscape of dentistry.
I have also been involved with a number of supplements. The Navigating Risk supplement was one of my favourite projects because of the different risks we were able to cover and the number of people we were able to interview and showcase.
The LexisNexis Risk Solutions Roadshow was a series of roundtables co-hosted by LexisNexis Risk Solutions and Modern Insurance Magazine. They covered some key areas of insurance that are or have heavily adapted to the enormous amounts of data entering our systems. Each group discussed how data, analytics and technology are being utilised to improve interactions and services within those spaces. My full write-up of the events can be found in Issue 41 of Modern Insurance Magazine.
In May 2019, I took to the road as Co-Editor of Modern Law Magazine with Price Bailey Chartered Accountants to discuss the future of the law firm. Gathering together individuals from across the sector, we visited Norwich, Peterborough, London and Brighton, and gained some useful insights about the legal landscape, while debating the current challenges and opportunities facing the sector. You can read my full write-up here as part of Issue 43 of Modern Law Magazine.
In February 2019 I helped put together the Customer Service Excellence Roadshow in partnership with Carpenters Group. The events were held ahead of the UK Customer Service Excellence Awards and featured in Issue 36 of Modern Insurance Magazine. The aim of the events were to highlight certain factors concerning customer service in the insurance industry and how we can continue to ensure that the customer is at the heart of everything we do.
In February 2020, I was invited to the GDC's Moving Upstream Conference 2020, where we were introduced to this year's Moving Upstream Report. The article is a summary of my highlights from the day.
In November 2019, I was invited to attend the 1st Slow Dentistry Meeting in London and to join the discussion about how going slow can impact your day-to-day practice and improve overall success. It was a privilege to have been invited and listen to some world-class dental practitioners talk about their experiences.
The BDIA Dental Showcase was back for another year, bringing together suppliers, manufacturers, service providers, associations, and dental care professionals under one roof for an invaluable event dedicated to celebrating innovation in dentistry. I was there as a representative of Modern Dentist Magazine to capture the action and provide the highlights of this year's BDIA Dental Showcase.
