Special Care Dentistry – from cradle to grave, is the theme of this year’s BDA Community Dental Services Group Annual, Presidential and Scientific Meeting.
Taking place at Bath’s famous Assembly Rooms from 31 October to 2 November, the event will explore the clinical challenges posed by patients of all ages with special needs, examining issues including the prevention of dental disease in children with disabilities and the provision of appropriate care to older people. The meeting will also focus specifically on the prevention of abuse in both child and older patients.
The final day of the event will take education as its theme, considering the primary care-based approach of the new Peninsula Dental School, training in community dentistry across the UK and the postgraduate training options for those in special care dentistry.
Speakers include Dr Stephen Fayle, Consultant in Paediatric Dentistry at Leeds Dental Institute, Dr Janice Fiske MBE, Senior Lecturer and Consultant in Special Care Dentistry at King’s College London Dental Institute, Professor Richard Wellbury, Professor of Paediatric Dentistry at Glasgow Dental Hospital, and Professor Liz Kay, Dental Dean at Peninsula College of Medicine and Dentistry.
Philip Friend OBE, Chair of RADAR, the pan-disability organisation representing the needs and expectations of people with disabilities, will set the scene for the conference.
