Monday marked the official launch of Seminars@thirtyeight which is located at 38 Devonshire Street, just off Harley Street in the heart of London’s West End Medical District.
It is a stylish Edwardian building steeped in medical and dental history, but which has just been brought bang up to date with the launch of a dedicated and hugely well equipped conference suite on the whole of the lower ground floor.
38 Devonshire Street is home to a successful, private dental practice owned by Dr Gaynor Barrett, and also has a number of large and beautifully appointed consulting rooms which can also be used for hands on courses, photography and filming.
During the day, a constant stream of invited guests were shown the seminar suite and practice facilities which offer an impressive and flexible venue to entertain and educate dental professionals with first rate continuing professional development.
At the launch it was announced that a roster of elite lecturers drawn from Gaynor’s worldwide contacts has been drawn up.
The dedicated suite allows guests direct access to both speakers and sponsors in a way not possible with hotel or conference venues, allowing them to interact in an intimate and less intimidating setting.
This is the first dedicated seminar suite within a private dental practice with the systems in place to host an event from initial marketing to final delivery.
The context of the seminar suite within the practice offers multiple options in terms of presentation as the facilities of both can be used together.
The centre’s new website was launched yesterday – www.seminarsthirtyeight.com – which showed that Diplomate of the American Board of Endodontics, Dr Pirooz Zia, was the first to lecture in the new seminar suite and was followed by Dr Marc Cooper who embarked on his first UK tour with a two-day practice management and communication course.
He will be followed by high-profile lecturers including Dr Jason Smithson who is running a hands on course on direct resin artistry in October and November sponsored by Optident and Nu-View.
NYU trained Dr Emiliano Zanaboni, is to deliver a series of evening lectures on implants for beginners and Professor Giovanni Zucchelli will be running a three-day masterclass in 2011.
Many more will be added to the schedule in the next weeks including a course on preparation for CQC compliance with a particular emphasis on West-End Dental Practices.
Seminars@thirtyeight plans to offer courses at various times during the working week and at weekends with the aim of making high quality CPD more accessible to both dentists and team members alike.
In the evening, the atmosphere shifted and a pianist sat at a grand piano in the wood panelled reception room and entertained the guests with an improvised jazz concert.
