Blog: Ten years of the Equality Act and still fighting
This October is the 10th anniversary of the Equality Act in Great Britain, and COVID-19 has shown why it is still so needed.

I have also used it to prevent discrimination happening in the first place, working with employers to introduce accessibility passports for disabled workers. The Equality Act was a fantastic achievement. Years of trade union campaigning and a ...

CS 3700 Ranked First in Trueness in Latest In-Vitro Study
 ATLANTA —Scientific literature has shown intraoral scanners to be highly successful in creating digital impressions for designing short-span restorations and partial prosthesis; however, scanning fully edentulous arches is less studied.

Many others who have come before me will tell you that it is a lonely road when you are storming a castle and it can feel a bit like you’re in a fi...
