The NEPD is a network of private dentists in the North East of England. The group helps both dentists and patients by furthering the development of independent private practices in the area.
Providing a support network
The NEPD provides a network of peers to ensure that support is available when required. This includes regular meetings to discuss experience and best practice and a forum for discussion of clinical issues in a confidential environment. This support network is available to all members, whether they are established in private practice or considering a future move away from NHS contracts.
Organising seminars and events
The NEPD organises regular seminars by both local and nationally renowned speakers. These cover both clinical and business issues. For details of forthcoming events, along with some information on past seminars, please see the 'events' section.
Ensuring high standard of care
The NEPD provides a Code of Practice for all members to ensure that patients receive the best possible care. Regular seminars ensure that members are up to date with new techniques and materials.
On call service
The NEPD can help with on call cover arrangements. This means that patients are receiving the same high standards of service that they would expect from their normal practice.
