Inhalation Sedation Course in Stratford-on-Avon

This blog post could have been titled
"Snow Snow Thick Thick Snow" 
but that would not have been very SEO -savvy!
Saturday 23rd March 2013

So on a memorable and snowy Saturday in Stratford, 10 doughty dental professionals made their way through worsening snow to Stratford Dental Practice, just minutes from the town centre to arrive between 8.45 and 9 am,  to attend a day of learning on my subject of expertise, joining Chris Charon and myself.

In the end we had seven dentists, one hygienist and two nurses. One dentist and two nurses had to drop out due to the weather conditions.

The practice owner, Dr. Manju Kumar attended as did our host and course facilitator for the day, Dr. Rob Endicott, and one of their dental hygienists. Rob put in a great deal of behind the scenes effort to ensure we had a successful day.

So despite the fact that three people had no choice but to cancel on the morning, for evident and good reasons, the group of ten plus ourselves made it a viable and good sized group for the teaching environment I prefer ( 8-15 max.)
