Customer Comment: “I thoroughly enjoyed the four safeguarding courses I did. I had been putting it off as I thought it would be time consuming and irrelevant, however the opposite was true. The time went very quickly and I found the courses to be both relevant and very interesting. Thank you for making it so enjoyable and worthwhile “ Vivien Brown - Practice Manager, Harland & Dear Dental Practice.
