FORWARD is a 12 month program of continuing education sessions available exclusively to the independent dentists practising from a Primary Dental centre. We’ve chosen some of the most trusted and recognised experts in their specialist areas to present on a range of topics relevant to everyday clinical practice.

With a focus on hands-on workshops, the courses are designed to support the dentists with the skills and knowledge to reach the next level of their practicing career. In addition to providing access to over 40 hours of free CPD, FORWARD offers the chance to network with likeminded dental colleagues and leaders in the dental industry.

Putting our best foot FORWARD

Feb 2020 marked the opening event of the 2020 FORWARD series in Melbourne.  

Now in its second instalment, FORWARD has been praised for the quality of its content and has caught the attention of dentists looking for a workplace where they can build a patient base and continue developing their skills. 

A  group of 30 dentists and team members from across Australia came together to extend their skills in “Treatment planning and effective communication” a workshop lead by Dr Lincoln Harris, one of Australia’s most prominent dental speakers and entrepreneurs, whose latest online discussion group is followed by over 73,000 people globally.
