Description

To celebrate their 25th anniversary the Faculty of General Dental Practice (UK), in partnership with Simplyhealth Professionals, is delighted to announce a celebratory conference featuring six of th eUK's leading experts, from a range of oral health fields, assembled for the first time in one exciting programme.

This unique conference is designed for clinicians at all stages of their careers and aims to provide:

  • Updates on the latest research that provides the foundation for the contemporary management of common dental diseases
  • A fascinating insight into the complex inter-relationships between oral diseases and the general health of patients in all age groups
  • The revealing evidence base that demonstrates the long-term impact of some traditional treatments on oral and general health

The programme will provide dental professionals in general practice and other clinical settings with the knowledge to help them deliver extended oral health care. The lectures will also describe the skill-sets that will help delegates select biologically, minimally invasive techniques and future-proof their practices by integrating general health care with everyday clinical dentistry.
