This interactive lecture will present the current thinking about X-ray practice in dentistry, keeping the good areas from the last and suggesting new ideas from the modern technology. Integration of technology into your clinical practice is key and the lecture is relevant to all areas of dentistry, from generalist to specialist level. The latter part of the lecture will look at pearls and pitfalls from different imaging methods followed by an interactive spotter to test your skills.

  • Discover the doses from all types of modern X-ray images
  • Integrate new imaging methods into your clinical practice, regardless of skill or experience
  • Learning from mistakes – a look at some of my mistakes and others from the archives; and learn why they happened and how to improve

Learning objectives

  • Delegates will be able to understand how to read CBCT reports
  • Delegates can test and optimise their reporting skills with a spotter

MOUTH CANCER – WHERE ARE WE POST COVID-19?

The impact of a restricted access to primary care services during the Covid-19 pandemic is manifesting in 2022 in the form of mouth cancers that are relatively large with a high incidence of neck metastases. Both these factors will result in the need for more extensive forms of treatment and poorer outcomes for patients. The number of Urgent Suspected Cancer (USC) referrals to secondary care has fortunately now returned to pre-pandemic levels but conversion rates are still low due to inappropriate use of the system. This presentation will include an interactive clinical component to help dental healthcare workers with the most effective use of the USC system for patients found to have a mucosal or soft tissue orofacial abnormality. The Delivering Better Oral Health guidance for the UK, which was updated in November 2021, will be reviewed and the changes in the sections related to mouth cancer, in particular risk factors and prevention post-treatment, presented.

Learning objectives:

Following the presentation delegates will:

  • Understand the impact that the Covid-19 pandemic has had on mouth cancer
  • Have an increased appreciation of the difference between cancer / potentially malignant conditions and benign mucosal disorders
  • Be able to use of the USC referral system effectively
  • Be aware of the cancer related information in the updated Delivering Better Oral Health guidance

This talk satisfies the GDC’s learning outcome:
