Delivering better oral health to the ageing population

Thursday 17th October 2019 - 11.45 to 12.15 – Innovation Theatre  
Eric Rooney, Deputy Chief Dental Officer, NHS England and Mohsan Ahmed, Chair of the Greater Manchester Local Dental Network will give dental professionals insight into how they can meet the oral care needs of their patients and local community to ensure they age well. Examples of working differently through primary care networks will open up opportunities to ensure prevention is as important at seventy years of age as it is at seven.

Importance of oral health for people living with cancer 

Friday 18th October 2019 - 11.45 to 12.15 – Dental Update Theatre 
Joss Harding, Dental Hygienist, Confident Dental and Implant Clinic will review the journey of a cancer patient before, during and after treatment including patients with complications involving the oral cavity. This session will help equip the dental team with information to manage the options available and advice for this patient group.

Changing patient behaviour: Interventions that work

Saturday 19th October 2019 - 11.45 to 12.15 – Dental Update Theatre 
Tim Newton, Professor of Psychology as Applied to Dentistry, King’s College, London will discuss how most dental disease could be prevented by changes to diet and oral hygiene behaviours. There is extensive guidance on what patients should be doing to maintain and 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 will provide an overview of theory informed evidence-based approaches to behaviour change in dental settings.

An on-stand lecture ‘Whole Mouth Health – the next generation of everyday prevention for oral health’ will start every 30 minutes.
