BSDH is developing the support it offers to dental care professionals (DTPs).

We have set up a message board on the NHS Networks website. To use this, visit the link below and 'join'. A username and password will be created for you.

The site can then be used like a social networking site. We will set up various threads where questions can be posted, and you can communicate with other DCPs working in Special Care Dentistry. It is early days for the forum but it will only improve if you use it!
