CONFERENCE PROGRAMME

09.00am CHAIRMAN’S INTRODUCTION

DENTAL RADIOGRAPHY UPDATE – FROM RADIATION DOSE TO IMAGE INTERPRETATION

This talk will provide an update on the risks associated with ionising radiation, looking at the doses of dental radiographs and CBCT, and comparing these doses to the doses from common medical imaging procedures and other sources of radiation in our environment. The second part of the talk will focus on tips and tricks to improve your confidence in interpretation of panoramic radiographs. Helping you to differentiate between common artefacts and pathology.

Learning objectives

  • To understand the risks associated with ionising radiation
  • To have knowledge of the doses from dental radiographs and CBCT
  • To improve confidence in panoramic radiographic interpretation

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

THE SEVEN DEADLY SINS – NON-COMPLIANCE WITH INFECTION PREVENTION AND CONTROL

It is expected that dental care is provided in a safe environment both for patients and clinical staff.  This presentation will highlight seven aspects of infection control and prevention where procedures frequently go wrong.  The material will cover important processes related to waterlines, inoculation injuries, immunisation, decontamination, instrument storage, waste and infection control audit.  The importance of appropriate use of antimicrobial agents in dentistry is being increasingly recognised and updated prescribing guidelines will be presented. Finally, it is now expected that all clinicians should be able to recognise 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 standards for infection prevention and control
  • Understand the range of processes required for the safe delivery of dental care
  • Have knowledge of appropriate antimicrobial prescribing
  • Be aware of the need to be able to recognise sepsis

BENIGN, POTENTIALLY MALIGNANT OR MOUTH CANCER? WHAT TO DO WITH A MUCOSAL ABNORMALITY

In health the oral mucosa is constantly being renewed due to normal cell replication and turnover.  However, this process can be influenced by external factors that result in tissue abnormalities which may be benign, potentially malignant or cancer.  This presentation will describe the features of each type of these mucosal conditions and how best to manage an individual patient.  Specific emphasis will be given to the monitoring and treatment of potentially malignant mucosal abnormalities.  The material will contain an interactive quiz to allow attendees to assess their ability to recognise mouth cancer.  Unfortunately, the incidence of mouth cancer in the UK continues to rise and detection whilst the tumour is small (less than 2cm) without nodal spread has the greatest influence on improving the overall 5-year survival of 50%.

Learning objectives

Following the presentation delegates will:

  • Know how to adequately examine the soft tissues to detect mucosal changes
  • Understand the difference between benign conditions, potentially malignant abnormalities and cancer
  • Have an understanding of the management of non-malignant mucosal disease
  • Be able to appropriately refer a patient with suspected cancer to secondary care

SAFEGUARDING – WHERE ARE WE NOW?

It is now well over 20 years since the tragic and well publicised murder of  Victoria Climbié took place. This lecture will look at how, all these years on warning signs are still being ignored because all those involved in the care of children and adults at risk still fail to ‘join the dots’.  It will look at the impact of COVID-19 and what dental practices can do to ensure  they play their part in recognising potential or actual abuse, responding appropriately, referring when required and what they should record to ensure their records support the victim should this be required.

Learning objectives

  • Safeguarding responsibilities
  • How to recognise the signs and symptoms that dental professionals may see or notice
  • How the dental team should respond to suspected or actual cases of abuse
