Poor Foundations, Poor Outcomes; Ensuring Periodontal Success and Healthy Gums DO Matter (HGDM)

Speaker: Shazad Saleem

Aims: How to approach periodontal disease management using the HGDM and establish good foundations for periodontal care management and prevent poor outcomes.

Objectives: Following attendance on his course, delegates should be able:

  • To look at the challenges of managing periodontal disease working under the NHS contract
  • To look at the reasons for poor outcomes and foundations for managing periodontal disease is primary dental care
  • To introduce the Healthy Gums DO Matter toolkit for managing periodontal disease in primary care practice
  • To understand the importance of effective communication and behaviour change and using the patient agreement and periodontal leaflet and consent form in the HGDM toolkit
  • To introduce how to assess patient engagement using HGDM
  • To introduce the referral pathways into secondary care using in the HGDM toolkit

The Seven sins of the Dental Implant World

Speaker: Lloyd Searson

Aims: To take a reflective look at the last 40 years of implant dentistry. To see how the literature in implant Dentistry is often confounding, confusing and conflicting.

Objectives: Following attendance on his course, delegates should be able:

  • To be aware of how the industry has influenced the market place.
  • To question the usefulness and effectiveness of implants in the failing dentition.
  • To show that the lessons learned from classical conventional prosthodontics are applied much less.
  • To understand how sometimes clinical judgement is often clouded by financial motivation as opposed to clinical need.

GDC Development Outcomes: A and D


Endodontic Failures and Pathways to Success

Speaker: Francesco Mannocci

Aims: The choice between endodontic retreatment and extraction/replacement of teeth presenting with failed root canal treatments is an object of intense debate; in this lecture we will present the results of a number of clinical trials on the decision- making process leading to endodontic retreatment, on the outcome of endodontic retreatments and on the survival of endodontically retreated teeth.

These results will be presented with the support of Cone Beam Computed Tomography (CBCT)and Optical Scanning images.
The use of the Dental Practicality Index (DPI) as a decision-making tool for the root canal re-treatment and restoration of failed endodontically treated teeth will also be discussed.

Objectives: Following attendance on his course, delegates should be able to:

  • Use Cone Beam Computed tomography for the assessment of the outcome of endodontic treatments
  • Understand the effect of the loss of tooth structure and of dentine cracks on the outcome and the survival of endodontically re-treated teeth
  • Understand the conscious and subconscious biases which affect our decision making in endodontics and restorative dentistry
  • Use the DPI Index as a decision-making tool for the root canal re-treatment and restoration of failed endodontically treated teeth.

GDC Development Outcome: C

Standards for Commissioning in Restorative Dentistry/MCNs and how they work in Practice

Speaker: Matthew Jerreat

Aim:To understand the role of the MCN and what they can do
Objectives: Following attendance on his course, delegates should be able:

  • Understand how commissioners and clinicians can use the standards to develop services

Objective: Following attendance on this course, delegates should be able:

  • To understand what will be achieved by exploring the recent advances in the knowledge of the human dentome.


GDC development outcome: C

Use of resin bonded bridges in hypodontia patients

Speaker: Serpil Djemal

Aims: To give an in depth analysis of the use of resin bonded bridges

Objectives: Following attendance on his course, delegates should be able:
