Focus on Transgender – Andrew Terry

  • Respectful language in the LGBTIQA+ community
  • What is being done in Universities to foster education and acceptance of people with different sexual orientation and gender diverse backgrounds

It’s white and opaque, so what do I do? – Prof. Laurie Walsh

This lecture explores the clinical topic of enamel white spot lesions, beginning with some recent research into the importance of developmental enamel defects as a caries risk factor, and then moving into the recognition of different conditions which can cause a number one spot lesions to develop both prior to and following tooth eruption. Armed with this information, the lecture then moves on to discuss treatment strategies for reducing the visible appearance of white spot lesions, including microabrasion and the use of topically applied CPP-ACP (Tooth Mousse), giving examples of various clinical protocols and where and when they are used. The lecture will also include discussion of the role of a varnish delivery system for CPP-ACP and how this can address issues around patient compliance.

Learning objectives:

  • Developmental defects of enamel and their impact on caries risk
  • Aetiology of pre-eruptive enamel opacities
  • Aetiology of post-eruptive enamel opacities
  • Treatment approaches using micro abrasion and topical CPP-ACP
  • Treatment approaches using CPP-ACP-containing fluoride varnish

Bad habits that leads to bad outcomes: the connections between lifestyle and oral health – Prof. Laurie Walsh

Around 25 years ago intense research into the connections between lifestyle habits and oral health began to inform our understanding of the risk of dental caries and dental erosion. This lecture begins with the start of this journey, and then moves into the modern context to discuss the importance of ionic imbalances and dysbiosis which is driven by lifestyle habits. The contributions of oral piercings and tobacco usage will also be discussed, as well as both legal and illicit drugs and their oral health impacts. Armed with this information, clinicians should be more confident beginning interventions with patients that tackle these lifestyle behaviours.

Learning objectives:

  • Mechanisms by which lifestyle factors cause chemical and microbial imbalances
  • Legal addictive substances and their oral health impacts
  • Street drugs and their oral health impacts
  • Consequences of oral piercings

Multidisciplinary care for the orthodontic and sleep disordered breathing patient – Rochelle McPherson

Learning objectives:

  • Participants will learn the definition of Orofacial Myofunctional Therapy
  • Participants will learn what orofacial myofunctional disorders are and know what to look for clinically.
  • Participants will understand the adjunctive role OMT plays in the treatment of the orthodontic and SDB patient.

Beyond Gum: Periodontitis and Systemic Conditions – Dr Lizzy Hua

It is important for any oral health practitioners to recognize we are treating patients rather than the compartment of oral cavities. The ever-emerging evidence indicates that inflammatory profiles have significant roles in impacting ones’ overall health. Periodontitis has been linked with different systemic disease as an inflammatory condition. It is a constant potential source of infection and has been considered as a risk factor for some conditions burdening our society the most, namely cardiovascular, respiratory, endocrine, musculoskeletal, and reproductive system related abnormalities. Oral health impacts on the general well-being, and if comprehensive, holistic approach is ever to be achieved, oral health should not be undermined.

Learning objectives:

  • Acknowledge the correlation in disease pattern and treatment impacts between periodontal disease and various systemic conditions with focus on metabolic conditions, cardiovascular disease, arthritis and pregnancy
  • Optimize clinical practice in patient screening and be able to treatment plan for periodontal disease patients with the medical conditions discussed

Infection Prevention and Control – Karyn Gardner

It is essential that every staff member in the Dental practice has an evidence based understanding of the importance of infection prevention and control and a critical skill in the process is risk management.

Learning objectives:

  • Compliance and Risk management in the Dental Environment
