Oral health research for everyone: how to ensure quality patient benefit and engagement

We will be bringing together inspiring and successful researchers from a variety of clinical, social and basic science backgrounds, to share their research journeys and tips for success.

Attendance is free and places are allocated on a first come, first serve basis so we encourage participants to book early to avoid disappointment.
