NSW - Pop Up Perio Half Day Event

Join us at Rydges World Square for an interactive pop-up event featuring hands on and interactive workshops.


Our pop up perio event is a perfect refresher to sharpen and add to your skills after long months in lockdown. 

We start off by looking at hand health and instrument sharpening. We all know how important our hands and our instruments are to our day to day work, but do we really take the best care of them and our instruments? This hands on session will help you keep your hands in tip top shape. 

Our second session is an interactive approach to the new periodontal classification and treatment planning. We all know the new classifications are here to stay but how confident are you using them? Bring your laptop or smart device along to work through this important session. 

CPD: 3 hours
