belfastThis year’s British Society of Dental Hygienists and Therapists (BSDHT) Oral Health Conference hit all the right notes, leaving delegates with fresh inspiration to take home and apply in practice.

With a comprehensive and diverse programme covering many aspects of dental health, this year’s conference saw 500 delegates walk through the doors of Belfast’s Waterfront Hall over 18 and 19 November.

Looking at the big topics in oral and general health, the conference gave dental hygienists and therapists the opportunity to get a fresh perspective on the wider impact of their profession, helping them look beyond the teeth and gums to a patient’s overall health.

The theme of ‘perspectives’ reflected that perfectly, with world-renowned speakers discussing a range of topics such as inflammatory disease, external head and face cancers, infection control, radiography, peri-implantitis and more.

In addition to a packed lecture programme, a large trade exhibition showed delegates the latest, hottest tools and trends for the profession.

With a programme centred around looking beyond the teeth and gums to concentrate on how oral health issues affect a patient’s overall health, this year’s Oral Health Conference certainly offered its delegates a new perspective.
