This webinar will provide an overview of the principles for the minimally invasive (MI) management of patients with deep carious lesions and offer an exciting opportunity for primary care practitioners (dentists and therapists) to get involved in collecting clinical evidence as part of a national NIHR-funded primary care clinical trial.
This webinar will summarise the scientific and clinical evidence underpinning the latest concepts behind the minimally invasive operative management of deep carious lesions and will include:
• An overview on the conventional management of deep carious lesions
• An explanation of the principles behind selective caries removal and hard tissue / pulp preservation
• A summary of the clinical research supporting MI operative caries management
• An outline of the current NIHR-funded national UK clinical trial for Selective Caries Removal in Permanent Teeth (SCRiPT)
• Team participation details for the SCRiPT clinical trial

This lecture will provide an overview of all the key perio topics relevant in general practice, including the new classification.
Understand how developing the digital examination within your practice can drive an incredible patient journey and USP for your practice.
See how same-day chairside restorations can help you provide predictable, aesthetic and stress free dentistry!
This presentation aims to review the value of risk assessment in general dental practice in the context of behaviour change and care planning in oral healthcare. The different tools available will be examined together with the evidence base.
This lecture will briefly describe the rationale behind risk assessment and its role in contemporary preventive practice. It will also demonstrate the impact of personalised biofeedback on patient behaviour and on clinical measures of oral health:
This lecture will provide an overview of diagnosis and contemporary treatment of those oral medicine conditions which present most frequently in primary dental care. The emphasis will be on recognition of orofacial disease and its management in primary dental care. There will also be information on the indications and process of referral to specialist care. The material will be presented in the form of a self assessed interactive quiz that will enable participants to gauge the level of their knowledge in oral medicine.
The presentation will provide participants with an understanding of the following aspects of oral medicine in primary dental care.
• The differential diagnosis and initial management of inflammatory and infective causes of oral mucosal disease.
• The investigation and cause of dry mouth and its treatment.
• The diagnosis, investigation and management orofacial pain
• The recognition and referral of mouth cancer and potentially malignant disorders
In the background of the coronavirus pandemic, which puts little other than life and death into perspective, it might not be easy to see beyond the current crisis. However, there will be a time when dentists and their patients will again worry about how long the restorations placed in their teeth will last, and, arguably, more importantly, how the restorations which they receive will affect the lifespan of their teeth.
This presentation will therefore aim, using results from a 10 million restoration dataset, to predict the effect that given restorations will have a more profound effect on the life of the tooth than others.
At the end of the presentation, the listener will:
Tooth wear, in the past, was treated by gross destruction of teeth using a turbine drill for crown preparations – a strange way to treat teeth which were already compromised! However, substantial advances in bonding techniques have enabled the use of minimally invasive treatment using composite resin bonded to worn surfaces at an increased OVD. This presentation will discuss the optimum bonding agents for this treatment, the so-called Dahl concept, how to achieve an aesthetic improvement where needed (the concept of pragmatic aesthetics), and will indicate the rates of success which might be expected.
At the end of the course, delegates will:
By the end of this webinar, delegates will be able to enhance patient care by attaining an increased awareness of contemporary methods of restoring worn teeth.

This lecture will cover what is peri implant diseases and how to diagnose and treat it within general practice.
To diagnose peri implant diseases and the management.
This lecture will look at the common and less well know risk factors for periodontal disease. We will look at risk assessment tools and how risk management is an essential part of periodontal management.
By the end of this lecture, delegates will be able to demonstrate knowledge and understanding of periodontal risk factors, in the following subject areas:
By the end of this lecture delegates will be able to enhance patient care by providing periodontal risk factor assessment and educate patients with regard to the importance of risk factor reduction.
This lecture meets the criteria for category/categories A,C,D (delete as applicable) of the GDC’s development outcomes for enhanced CPD
This lecture will be presented in an interactive quiz style of clinical cases that will allow participants to assess their knowledge of the oral manifestations of systemic disease.
By the end of this lecture, delegates will be able to demonstrate a contemporary understanding of the presentation, investigation and management of a range of medical conditions that may initially present with orofacial signs and symptoms in primary dental care including:
By the end of this lecture delegates will be able to enhance patient care by recognizing the presence of underlying systemic disease thereby enabling the start of any required treatment at an early stage.
This lecture meets the criteria for category C of the GDC’s development outcomes for enhanced CPD (maintenance and development of knowledge and skill within your field of practice).
This webinar will provide a review and practical update on the minimally invasive management / maintenance of existing / failing direct restorations in our patients using the patient-focused, team-delivered minimum intervention oral care (MIOC) framework, during and after the pandemic era.
This lecture will provide an overview of the scientific and clinical evidence base for management and maintenance of the existing tooth-restoration complex in adults during and after the CoVid-19 crisis. Clinical case examples will help demonstrate some of the latest evidence-based minimally invasive clinical techniques for the “5Rs” approach – review, refurbish, re-seal, repair and replacement of failing direct restorations and will include the following subject areas:
By the end of this lecture delegates will be able to enhance patient care by optimising all aspects of the 5Rs pathway for managing the existing/failing tooth-restoration complex using minimum intervention oral care (MIOC) principles.
