New Horizons

Essentials of Clinical Science and Practical Concepts for the Practice Team

In the spirit of reconnecting, my Conference focuses on the whole dental team and the power and value of working together. We will address: doing the basics to gold standard; engaging the entire team; focussing on guidelines and disease management - with patient care and the best outcomes being key. I am keen to highlight digital implant dentistry and the interdisciplinary interfaces we address daily in clinical practice. The Conference promises an exciting mix of presentations, workshops, networking and socialising (don’t forget the party!) as well as providing the perfect occasion to join with friends and colleagues in a most splendid venue.

  • Clinical Decision Making in Periodontal Surgery
    Clinical Decision Making in Periodontal Surgery

    In some patients, periodontal surgery is an important step of the overall treatment in order to control periodontitis and provide long-term stability. Various techniques and approaches were described and clinical decision making is not necessarily straightforward.

    The first objective of this lecture is to clarify the needs and the indications for surgical periodontal therapy (step 3) once behavioral changes (step 1) and caused related therapy (step 2) are achieved. The second objective is to provide an overview of the different techniques for periodontal surgery and suggest a clinical decision making based on the recent guidelines.

  • Management of severely periodontally compromised teeth in restorative dental practice
    Management of severely periodontally compromised teeth in restorative dental practice

    Good periodontal health underpins all successful restorative dental procedures, both pre-treatment and in the long-term maintenance phase.  This presentation illustrates a broad range of restorative dental techniques on periodontally compromised cases treated over a 20 year period, examining the evidence base for the evolution from classical to contemporary treatment modalities available today.

    1. To discuss the role of the restorative dentist in the treatment planning and management of complex periodontal cases.

    2. To illustrate how an understanding of the evidence base for the prostho-perio interface has led to an evolution of the conservative, restorative and surgical techniques used in practice today.

    1. Understand the planning and selection of various restorative treatment modalities to produce a predictable outcome in the long term; conservative, uncomplicated, meeting the expectations of the patient, and with a long term view for maintenance including planning for failure.

    2. Appreciate a broad range of treatment options available which may be used  by restorative dentists and how these have evolved with the development of materials, techniques, and the evidence base.

      Having qualified in 2002 and going immediately into a therapist and specialist periodontal practice positions, presented with a plethora of prospects. I have always had the mind-set of learning something new every year and in 2006 was the year I would push myself out of my comfort zone and  go into teaching (whilst maintaining clinical practice). Taking on this role allowed me to bring forward experiences into the training programmes of our future professionals. Through the development of my teaching role and having strong/inclusive relationships within my practices, I moved on to become Deputy Lead and am now Programme Lead for a London undergraduate programme.

      My peripheral experiences have shown me, every physical aspect of dentistry is reliant on muscle building and memory (much like any sport), my colleagues and I train ‘instrumentation’ in this manner and believe it is a ‘sport’ that requires maintenance.  Reflection and recognition of what we do by acknowledging strengths, celebrating our achievements and striving for improvement is a huge component of my current working style. 

      Away from dentistry, I am mother of two, a runner and in 2016 I joined a rowing club (having had no experience before) which has changed my approach to teaching and teamwork.

      In 2008, I was extremely proud to qualify with a Diploma in Dental Hygiene and Therapy with distinction from King’s College London, Dental Institute. At a time where my profession’s skill set were underutilised in practice, I was able to practice my full remit within various settings of general and specialist practice. I returned to King’s College Hospital in 2011 as an educator for the undergraduate hygiene and therapy programme during which time I have gained an Associate Fellowship in Higher Education and more recently a Membership to the Faculty of Dental Trainers Edinburgh.  In 2021, I became the Module Lead for the Foundation of Clinical Skill Module for the Dental Therapy and Hygiene BSC programme, integrating DTH learning with their BDS peers at Kings College London.  Working with like minded colleagues, we truly believe in building the skills in periodontal instrumentation incrementally and that it is a true form of ‘elite’ sport and needs to be trained and maintained as such.

      I have developed and delivered training in periodontal instrumentation skills for the whole dental team for in-house practice training and wider organisations. 

      In 2013 I was elected Chair of British Society of Dental Hygienists and Therapists, London Group for two consecutive years which presented me with an opportunity to support our profession through a time of massive change.

      In 2008, I was extremely proud to qualify with a Diploma in Dental Hygiene and Therapy with distinction from King’s College London, Dental Institute. At a time where my profession’s skill set were underutilised in practice, I was able to practice my full remit within various settings of general and specialist practice. I returned to King’s College Hospital in 2011 as an educator for the undergraduate hygiene and therapy programme during which time I have gained an Associate Fellowship in Higher Education and more recently a Membership to the Faculty of Dental Trainers Edinburgh.  In 2021, I became the Module Lead for the Foundation of Clinical Skill Module for the Dental Therapy and Hygiene BSC programme, integrating DTH learning with their BDS peers at Kings College London.  Working with like minded colleagues, we truly believe in building the skills in periodontal instrumentation incrementally and that it is a true form of ‘elite’ sport and needs to be trained and maintained as such.

      I have developed and delivered training in periodontal instrumentation skills for the whole dental team for in-house practice training and wider organisations. 

      In 2013 I was elected Chair of British Society of Dental Hygienists and Therapists, London Group for two consecutive years which presented me with an opportunity to support our profession through a time of massive change.

  • Implant Surgery: Planning, workflow and imaging
    Implant Surgery: Planning, workflow and imaging

    Whether carrying out simple or complex treatments, the use of 3D technologies, along with contemporary surgical and prosthetic protocols, may enhance outcomes and contribute to a more enjoyable and predictable implant practice. The mainstream use of these technologies has transformed the way we carry out treatment, and dramatically impacts upon the management of our patients. A creative use of technology permits new approaches to treatment that could never have been previously considered, facilitating treatment in anatomically constrained situations.

    The aim of this lecture is to show how surgery can be enhanced by the use of strategic implant planning, and the plan predictably transferred to the operative site, elegantly leading to a predetermined  prosthetic outcome.

    1. To consider how implant surgery can be improved by access to 3D technologies

    2. To discuss different aspects of the digital workflow - prosthetic planning, 3D imaging, guided and navigated surgery, and the delivery of  provisional or definitive prostheses

    3. To identify and discuss perils and pitfalls in the use of technology

    Delegates will be able to:

    1. Identify situations where patients will benefit from the use of enhanced 3D-thinking 

    2. Understand how the use of 3D technologies can  lead to a more predictable and creative approach to implant treatments.

    3. Understand the different ‘inputs’ and ‘outputs’ to and from the digital workflow

I have developed and delivered training in periodontal instrumentation skills for the whole dental team for in-house practice training and wider organisations. 

In 2013 I was elected Chair of British Society of Dental Hygienists and Therapists, London Group for two consecutive years which presented me with an opportunity to support our profession through a time of massive change.
