The course, titled ‘Nutrition and the dental practice’, will look closely at the current evidence base on dietary analysis and nutritional recommendations and establish where this fit into current dental practice.
Delegates will learn to model chronic disease as a result of diet and lifestyle factors, and how to incorporate these factors into diagnosis and treatment planning.
The course specifically aims to ‘demystify apparent inconsistencies in past and current dietary recommendations as a way to merge oral healthcare and nutritional therapy’.
Hosted by Sydney-based dentist Dr Steven Lin – a widely published author on the subject of nutrition in dentistry – the course offers 14 hours of verifiable CPD.
Keep your eyes peeled for the next issue of Oral Health – out in November – which will feature an article by Dr Lin that takes a closer look at the oral microbiome and poses the question: is the mouth-gut connection a new frontier of healthcare?
