CONFERENCE PROGRAMME

09.00am CHAIRMAN’S INTRODUCTION

RADIOGRAPHY AND RADIATION PROTECTION – YOUR ROLE IN THE IMAGING VALUE CHAIN

Dental radiographs are an essential diagnostic aid in dentistry, but how can the whole dental team work together to optimise their diagnostic value? This talk will explore the relevant roles, responsibilities, and ways in which the entire dental team can optimise dental radiographs and contribute to the diagnostic imaging value chain.

Learning objectives

  • Be aware of the roles and responsibilities of different team members in dental radiography
  • Understand the importance of operator technique in producing high quality dental radiographs
  • Recognise the importance of interpreting dental radiographs in a systematic manner

This talk satisfies the GDC’s learning outcomes:

B – Effective management of self, and effective management of others or effective work with others in the dental team, in the interests of patients at all times; providing constructive leadership where appropriate

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

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

A – Effective communication with patients, the dental team, and others across dentistry, including when obtaining consent, dealing with complaints and raising concerns when patients are at risk

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

This talk satisfies the GDC’s learning outcome:

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

To understand:

  • 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
  • When and how to refer
  • How to make records relating to a safeguarding concern
  • What to do in different potential safeguarding scenarios

This talk satisfies the GDC’s learning outcomes:

A – Effective communication with patients, the dental team, and others across dentistry, including when obtaining consent, dealing with complaints, and raising concerns when patients are at risk
