Barry Barker Memorial Lecture - Recollections of a Brilliant Man and 'Life Cycles of Traumatised Teeth'

Event Details

ADA NSW in conjunction with ASE NSW present this EXCLUSIVE ONLINE EVENT

Join us on Wednesday 3 November for this special online presentation in conjunction with ASE (NSW Branch), featuring Professor Geoffrey Heithersay AO.

Professor Heithersay’s long friendship with Barry Barker dating from 1958 is full of many memories of this remarkable intellectual who graced the dental profession and the University of Sydney for too few years. Professor Heithersay will review his early experimental endodontic research and Dr Barker’s significant anatomical studies concerning their present-day impact and relevance.
In the belief that his good friend Barry would have been highly interested in studies into the life cycles of traumatised teeth, Professor Heithersay will present selected, long-term cases to illustrate potential biological or pathological changes which may occur in teeth over the lifetime of victims of dental trauma.

ADA NSW is proud to be holding this event in conjunction with the Australian Society of Endodontology (NSW Branch).


All ASE NSW Members have been automatically registered for this event and you will receive email confirmation of your registration shortly, with login details for the lecture. You do not have to register.

    Professor Geoffrey Heithersay AO first joined the part-time staff of the Faculty of Dentistry in 1962 following four years of postgraduate study in the UK and Sweden. Since that time he has a long history of specialist endodontic practice in Adelaide and University undergraduate and postgraduate teaching particularly in the field of dental traumatology. He has been active in clinical and basic research and has 69 published papers and has contributed to seven book chapters. In 2001 he was awarded The University of Adelaide’s most senior degree: the Doctor of Dental Science which was based on a two volume thesis entitled “Invasive Cervical Resorption and Associated Endodontic Research”. Awards include an Officer of the Order of Australia for post graduate endodontic education in 1998 and the Louis I Grossman Award of the American Association of Endodontists for significant research studies in 2000. In 2009 Geoff received three awards for excellence in teaching - the Faculty of Health Sciences Executive Dean’s Award, The Stephen Cole the Elder Award and The University of Adelaide’s Vice Chancellor’s Award. He has been a recipient of Honorary life Memberships of the Australian Society of Endodontology, the Australian New Zealand Academy of Endodontists and the Adelaide University Dental Students Society and is also a recipient of Fellowships from four International Dental bodies.
