Welcome to Alpha Omega
I am delighted to be welcoming you as the incoming chairman of the London branch of the Alpha Omega International Dental Society.
The last few months have been eventful and not a little challenging for all of us, whether practice owners, practicing specialists, or newly qualified/and undergraduate students in this wonderful profession. Alpha Omega’s offering for the 2020/2021 season will be the most exciting and innovative yet; and relevant and informative to all.
Alpha Omega is a welcoming community for all dentists, oral health professionals and students and especially those newly qualified and about to embark on their professional journeys. We are now working with Health Education England to offer excellent educational material for the foundation dentists and an opportunity for them to meet with, connect with and learn from dentists at all levels in their careers.
We offer a superior level of educational training with the best and the brightest in the dental world, as well as mentoring and of course the opportunity to engage socially with our professional colleagues.
Dentistry can be a very lonely and often stressful profession and I believe it is important to be reminded that you are not alone; in Alpha Omega, we are a community, a unique society, a forum where problems big and small can be shared and understood.
The events of the past year were, to use that overworked word, unprecedented. New ways of disseminating information, communicating and arranging lectures have been employed and Alpha Omega rose to the challenge and embraced these changes ensuring our members, globally, received fascinating lectures and learning opportunities throughout lockdown. Over the summer, we have made significant changes to our website and I together with the council are delighted that the website is now more interactive and regularly updated. Please check it out!
There are two amazing webinars booked for October and November this year and from January we will host our monthly lectures back at the BDA and also online for those unable to attend in person.
Click here to discover more about these upcoming events and be sure to find out about the great benefits of becoming a member. Members are able to attend all the lectures, giving CPD points and access to specialist private events and more!
Join now and enjoy the mentoring, friendship, charity, and an exceptional standard of further education!
Thank you to both the Council and Scientific Committees, especially past Chairman Dr Richard Horwitz and the Chair of the Scientific Committee Professor Eddie Scher for all their help in putting together the programme for this year. I hope to continue building on the successes of last year.
I also thank all our fantastic sponsors especially Henry Schein, for their generous charitable donations and support for all our events. If you don’t already use their Alpha Omega rewards and discounts take a look at them, (another membership perk!)
Most importantly I have to thank all our members for their continued support and encouragement. Please continue to bring guests, colleagues, peers, and students to the events, introduce them to the phenomenon that is Alpha Omega, and help our London Group grow.
Join Alpha Omega, build your dental career, enjoy great events, learn from the most influential dental professionals today, and most importantly have a good time.
We look forward to welcoming you.
Dr. Diana Spencer
Chairman of The London Chapter of Alpha Omega Dental Fraternity
