Event Details

Clinical Diagnostic Masterclass

The Recent Graduate & Students Study Club will be hosting this event but is open to all Dentists.  This session is designed for students and young dentists’ offering techniques to improve their career longevity.

Event overview

Important Diagnostic and Clinical Tips for Interceptive Orthodontics and Compromised First Permanent Molars.

Participants are expected to have completed diagnosis and propose an appropriate management strategy for the four problem-based learning cases (compromised first permanent molars, ectopic maxillary canines, anterior and posterior crossbites, and significant incisor trauma) prior to the interactive webinar. Review of the lecture materials, reflection on the case studies and a short quiz will provide participants with the ability to contribute to the webinar conservation with their peers in a meaningful manner and reflect upon their abilities, both during and following the webinar.

The webinar (and summary notes) will allow participants to determine the accuracy of their diagnosis and the appropriateness of their proposed management strategy for these real-life clinical case studies.

Learning Objectives

To provide the understanding and detailed clinical insight for the following:

  1. Diagnosis and management strategies for compromised first permanent molar cases (including a review of the aetiology, diagnosis and treatment options for molar hypomineralisation)
  2. Diagnosis and appropriate management strategies for interceptive orthodontic cases (including ectopic canines, anterior and posterior crossbites, significant incisor trauma
