The British Society of Dental Hygiene & Therapy has appointed Emma Fisher DipDH DipDT to the new role of website feeder.
Emma is responsible for updating the BSDHT website (www.bsdht.org.uk) with reference material and the latest research findings essential to the roles of dental hygienist and dental therapist.
She worked as a dental nurse before taking a Diploma in Dental Hygiene and Dental Therapy and graduating in 2001.
After working in a practice, she moved to teaching and last year became a programme director at the Academic Unit of Hygiene and Therapy, University of Sheffield.
Speaking of her role as website feeder for the BSDHT, Emma said: ‘I am very interested to promote dental research and this appointment will enable BSDHT members to obtain current, relevant information which will enrich their knowledge and contribute to the continuing provision of the best possible care for patients.’
Sally Simpson, president of the BSDHT said: ‘We made this appointment in response to requests from members to have easy access to relevant information and research. We see that as another step in the ongoing development of the BSDHT website and our services to members.’
