In collaboration with the College of General Dentistry.
There is a culture of fear and anxiety that affects many clinicians in dental settings. This can lead to defensive dentistry and a significant level of cognitive dissonance that can affect all members of the dental team.
Project Sphere is a project led by Jason Wong (Deputy Chief Dental Officer for England) and run by Jyoti Sumel (Dental therapist and health education england dental clinical leadership fellow) involving a group of key stakeholders including regulators of dentistry.
This webinar will explore and discuss the work of this group which aims to initiate steps to move away from the current blame culture, to a positive, fair, and learning culture within dental settings.
