Claire is Adjunct Professor & Program Coordinator in the Ashman Department of Periodontology and Implant Dentistry at NYU College of Dentistry in New York. She is the former Program Lead for BDS2 Undergraduate Periodontal Education at Kings College London and spent eight years developing a robust undergraduate BDS2 curriculum for periodontology, a rare position for a Dental Hygienist. She is a graduate of Trinity College Dublin in Dental Hygiene and also holds a Masters Degree in Teaching and Learning in Higher and Professional Education currently a Fellow of the Higher Education Academy and the International Federation of Dental Educators and Associations. Claire has contributed to a chapter in the 'Textbook of Clinical Dentistry' alongside a team of faculty at Kings College London due for publication at the beginning of 2018. 

Claire is the recipient of the Maurice & Vivienne Wohl Studentship Award where she won a prestigious scholarship to undertake a PhD in risk communication of dental diseases among dentists with the Behavioural and Social Sciences group, at the Department of Population & Oral Health also at Kings College London. Claire also consults on a practice based clinical trial where some behavioural interventions are being tested in a group of patients. This paper is currently under review with the Journal of Clinical Periodontology. She is external examiner for the Irish Dental Council Accreditation Committee and plays an active role in matters of curriculum design and implementation. She is currently collaborating on a large clinical trial to promote oral hygiene delivery among young dentists with a team at Bristol University. 

Claire is an experienced public speaker and has delivered lectures and hands-on training nationally and internationally. She has presented at numerous scientific meeting and conferences in the UK, Ireland, Malta and Turkey. She has given lectures at the BDA, IFDH, BADT, BSDHT, KCL alumni and Turkish Society of Periodontology. Future events include ADI and IDHA. Her main interests are implant maintenance and she has de- signed and developed training for Dentists and DCP's. She recently set up a CPD company that focuses on the education of general dentists in the diagnosis and treatment of Periodontal disease. Claire is also consultant to dental companies providing expertise on products, equipment and educational programmes, utilising 22 years of clinical & academic experience within Dental Schools in the UK, Ireland and the US. Claire treats patients in a variety of primary care settings in London. 

Claire is passionate about non-surgical periodontal instrumentation, patient education and disease prevention. She has a special interest in peri-implant disease management. She is a pioneer for oral health promotion and disease prevention and was awarded a stamp of excellence in recognition for her hard work and dedication to oral hygiene for 2016. Claire has had advanced training and education in periodontal instrumentation in the US and teaches advanced root surface debridement techniques, ergonomics and increasing patient adherence to oral hygiene. She writes for publications on a regular basis highlighting the importance of periodontal and implant assessment as routine and providing guidance on how to implement evidence into practice. Claire is a member of the BDA, BSP, EFP, IDHA, ADHA, and the ADI and the current BSP ECG Committee Dental Hygiene Therapy Representative.

Webinar - Implant Surface Debridement (ISD) for Management of Peri-Implant Mucositis

Abstract

According to the literature, complications associated with dental implants are presenting more often than ever, and failure is more likely in patients who are not enrolled in regular maintenance programs (Costa et al, 2012), have a previous history of or have active periodontal disease. Several systematic reviews of the literature report strong evidence for plaque (Mombelli et al, 2012) as a risk factor for peri-implant mucocitis (Renvert & Polyzois, 2015). Mucositis is a reversible inflammation of the soft tissues, and a pre-curser for peri-implantitis (Salvi & Ramseier, 2015) and this webinar will explore options to manage peri-implant mucositis (Renvert et al, 2008) using a non- surgical approach (Heitz-Mayfield & Mombelli 2014, Lang & Berglundh 2011). The presentation will include an explanation of the key terminology and a brief review of recent scientific literature relating to safe and effective implant surface debridement (SEM studies). We will take a look at current hand and powered instruments, discuss their adaption and areas of use and finally discuss the importance of patient self-care based on theory to improve adherence to maintenance recommendations.

Aims

To increase awareness of powered and hand instruments considered safe to perform non-surgical implant therapy and maintenance.

Objectives

To gain theoretical understanding of how non-surgical procedures may be used to debride dental implants and their restorative counterparts to prevent and control peri-implant mucositis.

Outcomes

  • be familiar with the current literature on safe materials and devices to use on implant surfaces.
  • know a variety of implant compatible ultrasonic devices for implant debridement, their design features, adaption, angulation and stoke production.
  • understand how the implant anatomy should be approached using hand instruments to remove biofilm and calculus deposits.
  • be familiar with specialised implant hygiene aids for a variety of abutment and restorative designs.
