CONFERENCE PROGRAMME

09.00am CHAIRMAN’S INTRODUCTION

RADIOGRAPHY AND RADIATION PROTECTION: MODERN DENTAL IMAGING

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 confidently explain X-ray risk to patients
  • Delegates will be able to understand how to read CBCT reports
  • Delegates can test and optimise their reporting skills with a spotter

This talk satisfies the GDC’s learning outcomes:

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

D – Maintenance of skills, behaviours and attitudes which maintain patient confidence in you and the dental profession and put patients’ interests first

INFECTION PREVENTION IN DENTISTRY – IT’S A LOT MORE THAN JUST COVID-19

The safe delivery of dental care over the past three years has been strongly influenced by the publication of a range of standard operating procedures (SOPs) related to Covid-19.  The SOPs from different authorities are continually being updated and this presentation will highlight contemporary guidance for best practice during 2023.  Aspects for discussion will include vaccination, personal protective equipment (PPE) and surgery ventilation.  It is equally essential to ensure that decontamination processes are in place to prevent transmission of other viruses (herpes and hepatitis) and pathogenic bacteria (tuberculosis).  The impact of the pandemic on the prescribing of antimicrobial agents for dental infections will be outlined.  Finally, it is now expected that all clinicians should be able to recognise the potential for sepsis in a patient and therefore the clinical symptoms of this life-threatening condition will be presented.

Learning objectives

Following the presentation delegates will:

  • Have knowledge of the contemporary SOPs related to infection prevention
  • Understand the processes required for effective decontamination in the dental surgery
  • Have an awareness of the impact of antimicrobial prescribing during the Covid-19 pandemic
  • Be aware of the need to be able to recognise sepsis

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

Professor Michael A. O. Lewis PhD, FDSRCPS, FDSRCS (Eng), FRCPath, FFGDP(UK), FHEA, Emeritus Professor, Cardiff University

Biography

Mike Lewis is Emeritus Professor at Cardiff University.  He has held a number of senior professional positions including, President of the British Society for Oral Medicine, President of the British Society for Oral & Dental Research, Dean of the Dental Faculty of the Royal College of Physicians & Surgeons of Glasgow, Dean of the School Dentistry at Cardiff University and Dental Member of the Department of Health specialist advisory committee on Antimicrobial Resistance and Hospital Acquired Infection. He has lectured extensively worldwide and is the author of textbooks on the subjects of Oral Medicine and Oral Microbiology.  Mike is a Registrant Member of the General Dental Council and was recently awarded the John Tomes Medal by the British Dental Association for outstanding service to the dental profession.

MOUTH AND OROFACIAL CANCER – WHERE ARE WE IN 2023?

It has been generally accepted that the incidence of mouth cancer within the UK population has consistently been increasing each year over the past three decades.   However, in 2022 it became apparent, as predicted by the dental profession, that the reduced access to clinical services during Covid-19 pandemic would result in a greater number of patients subsequently presenting with relatively large tumours and increased metastatic spread to the lymph nodes in the neck.   Both these features of mouth cancer are associated with a poor outcome.  In 2023, never has an effective dental examination, in particular a head and neck soft tissue examination, been so important for the public.  The updated Delivering Better Oral Health guidance for the UK contains sections related to mouth cancer to hopefully address these problems, in addition to presenting clinical actions required for cancer prevention going forward into 2023.  All dental professionals should also be able to recognise the different forms of skin cancer that may develop in the facial tissues or within the neck and be able to refer suspected malignancies to secondary healthcare services.

Learning objectives:

Following the presentation delegates will:

  • Have an indication of their ability to recognise orofacial cancer (via an inter-active quiz)
  • Be able to accurately record benign and malignant mucosal abnormalities
  • Have an understanding of the prevention and management of mucosal epithelial dysplasia
  • Have increased awareness of the importance of potentially malignant disorders
  • Know how to optimally refer patients with suspected cancer to secondary care in 2023
