CONFERENCE PROGRAMME

09.00am CHAIRMAN’S INTRODUCTION

RADIOGRAPHY AND RADIATION PROTECTION: WHAT’S LURKING IN THE SHADOWS? – AN UPDATE ON RADIOGRAPHIC REPORTING AND CBCT

Radiology and radiography are used every day in general practice and are an important GDC core subject. This lecture is designed for the general practitioner to refresh and update their knowledge in this area.

The first part of the lecture describes some general principles of radiographic reporting and highlights some of the common difficulties in panoramic interpretation. The second part focuses on CBCT and will look at how these images are formed and when this modality should be considered to compliment plain images.

Some clinical examples will be presented at the end as an interactive discussion.

Learning Objectives

On completion of this lecture you should:

  • Understand how to assess a panoramic image in a systemic way.
  • Have refreshed your knowledge of anatomy on a panoramic image and be aware of how this may be affected by positioning variations.
  • Understand how a CBCT image is formed and when it should be considered to compliment 2D imaging.
  • Recognise some common abnormalities on panoramic images.

GDC outcome:

  • C – Maintenance and development of knowledge and skill within your field of practice

COVID 19 AND DENTAL INFECTION CONTROL RISKS: WHERE ARE WE NOW?

In dentistry’s response and adaption to staff and patient safety during the COVID-19 pandemic it has never been more important to fully appreciate how transmission of infection occurs, and the mechanisms we have to mitigate spread, using the simple but effective concepts of “Standard precautions in infection control” and “transmission precautions”. These protocols were first introduced universally in the 1980s in a response to the AIDS pandemic, and are still serving us well today during the current pandemic. The aim of this talk is to provide an overview and understanding of current microbiological threats and the associated recent developments in dental cross infection control guidelines and legislations and how best to implement them to ensure smooth running of the dental practice.

Learning objectives:

Following this presentation delegates will:

  • Be informed of the new risks associated with SARS- CoV-2 and their prevention in the dental practice
  • Understand the importance of respiratory protection and appropriate ventilation
  • Be able to implement effective hand hygiene and correctly use personal protective equipment
  • Be aware of safe working practices for sharps use and management of sharps injuries
  • Understand the role of vaccinations in maintaining dental team health
  • Understand the interaction between infection control & prevention and antimicrobial stewardship

This talk satisfies the GDC’s learning outcome:

  • C – Maintenance and development of knowledge and skill within your field of practice

WHERE ARE WE WITH REGARD TO MOUTH CANCER IN 2021?

Do you have a clear understanding of the contemporary approaches to the prevention, detection and referral of mouth cancer in 2021?  Unfortunately, despite increasing public and professional awareness of mouth cancer, 65% of patients with this form of cancer are still not detected until the tumour has advanced to Stage 3 or Stage 4.  This situation has deteriorated further in the last 12 months due to the impact of COVID-19 and an associated reduction in urgent suspected cancer (USC) referrals from primary care.  Prevention and detection of cancer at Stage 1 or Stage 2 are crucial aspects of improving the impact of mouth cancer for the UK population.  This lecture will provide an update on the potential for brief risk factor interventions in the dental surgery.  In addition, the use of a Mouth Cancer Toolkit will be presented.  Finally, the efficacy of the USC referral to specialist services depends on correct use of the cancer pathway in primary care.  Are you sure that you are using the USC pathway appropriately?

Learning objectives:

Following this presentation delegates will:

  • Have a contemporary understanding of a range of aspects of mouth cancer
  • Gain an appreciation of the ability to clinically recognise possible mouth cancer
  • Have knowledge of the brief interventions related to the main risk factors
  • Be able to use the toolkits provided for mouth cancer in primary care
  • Be able to compare your practice with current urgent suspected cancer referrals

This talk satisfies the GDC’s learning outcome:

  • C – Maintenance and development of knowledge and skill within your field of practice
