About study clubs
Study Clubs are formed to explore a specific topic. Members are practising dentists who meet regularly with the guidance of a mentoring dentist distinguished in that specific topic. Many mentors are certified dental specialists.
A long tradition of learning…
The tradition of surgical study clubs goes back to the father of modern dentistry, Dr. G. V. Black of Chicago. Late in the nineteenth century a group of Minnesota dentists invited Dr. Black to travel to Minneapolis to share his knowledge with them and the first study club was born. Seattle saw the formation of the first West Coast study club in 1906, and by 1936 the first BC study club was established in Vancouver. This tradition caught on strongly with West Coast dentists and continues to this day.
Open to all dentists
