All I Want For Christmas Are My Two Front Teeth

It's approaching Christmas time! Woohoo! 

First term has gone so quickly! Only 11 more sleeps and Santa will be here. But what do you want for Christmas? Here's what's on my Christmas List this year. 

One of our practice's Buddas feeling festive!

1. ARF fee

The BDA have been leading the fight against the ARF hike. 

There's been a surge of dentists cancelling their direct debits to the GDC, me being one of them. 
There was no way I would've been able to live this month if the increased annual retention fee of £890 was taken out on the 1st. Hopefully Santa will be generous this year! 

Thanks to the BDA for all their efforts in voicing the profession's discontent!

See my recent article about how this increase will affect young dentists. 

2. Loupes

Everyone keeps going on about buying Loupes and I believe you; it improves your posture, makes life easier for yourself and increases the quality of the dentistry you deliver! Unfortunately I don't have the funds to buy some at the moment.

I know the best type of Loupes need to have a light source too, and I wear glasses so I need to bear that in mind when deciding which type to buy. If anyone has any suggestions, please let me know in the comments section below!

3. Camera

I do love my bridge personal camera, but a dedicated clinical SLR with a 100mm macro lens and a Ringflash would be great. It would also save me carting my camera to and from work as I never know when I need it!

I also think an intra-oral camera would be a great tool to help demonstrate and educate patients about their oral health - it's surprising how many patients don't really know what's going on in their mouths!

Remember this tune?

So what's on your Christmas list? Does it look similar to mine? Let me know in the comments section below!
