Black Box Dentistry – Press Release

The first Black Box Dentistry Course was held on the 17th January 2019 at London Heathrow. The course was attended by 12 dental professionals who all rated the course to be ‘excellent’.

The course was co-created by dental and aviation professionals at TurnPoint with a view of providing Dental professionals an insight into Human Factors through an aviation lens. The intention of the course is to facilitate understanding of how humans operate in challenging environments and offer the experience and learning of the aviation industry which has developed effective strategies to manage risky and stressful situations in a systematic way.

Aviation best practice has previously been applied to other healthcare professionals in the NHS such as surgeons, however dentists, to date, have not benefited from these interventions as much. The challenges faced by dentists and dental nurses are unique and we feel that aviation has a lot to offer this industry. As well as highly relevant workshops facilitated by dentists and pilots, the delegates spend time in a flight simulator to give them a true insight into the working environment of pilots and some of the challenges faced.

The next Black Box Dentistry courses will be held on the 1st March and 4th April. These can be booked via our website for an introductory offer of £399 (normal price £499). This discounted rate is available until the 25th January 2019.

We can offer bespoke dates for group bookings and to deliver Black Dentistry Courses at your chosen training location.
