Delivering better oral health to the ageing population

Eric Rooney, deputy chief dental officer, NHS England and Mohsan Ahmed, chair of the Greater Manchester Local Dental Network. Eric and Mohsan provide dental professionals insight into how they can meet the oral care needs of their patients and local community to ensure they age well.

See examples of working differently through primary care networks. This will also open up opportunities to ensure prevention is as important at 70 years of age as it is at seven.

Anticipated GDC development outcomes B, C.

Importance of oral health for people living with cancer

Joss Harding, dental hygienist, Confident Dental and Implant Clinic, clinical ambassador for the Mouth Cancer Foundation and team member UKOMIC. Joss reviews the journey of a cancer patient before, during and after treatment. This also includes patients with complications involving the oral cavity.

This session will therefore help equip the dental team with information to manage the options available and advice for this patient group.

Anticipated GDC development outcomes C.

Changing patient behaviour: interventions that work

Tim Newton, professor of psychology as applied to dentistry, King’s College London. Tim discusses how most dental disease is prevented by changes to diet and oral hygiene behaviours.

Professor Newton also highlights the fact that there is extensive guidance on what patients should do to improve oral health. But much less guidance on how clinicians can deliver effective interventions to promote behaviour change in the time-limited environment of dental practice.

This session also provides an overview of theory informed evidence-based approaches to behaviour change in dental settings.
