The Irish Society of Dentistry for Children has decided to get ‘ Back to Basics’ at their Annual Scientific Meeting on Thursday, April 26, 2012 in Portlaoise. Professor Bill Bowen (USA) will discuss contemporary issues on caries - Myths and Mysteries of Dental Caries. Professor Bowen, a native of Wexford, was honoured by the IDA in 2010 for his lifetime work on caries. He is recognised as an expert in cariology worldwide and has published and lectured extensively. Management of the anxious child will be reviewed by Professor MT Hosey (UK) who has co-authored the book ‘Child Taming- how to manage children in dental practice’. Professor Hosey has an international reputation and expertise in coping with anxiety in a dental setting.
These topics will be relevant to all members of the dental team so please join us to update your knowledge in caries and behaviour. Registration details on www.dentistryforchildren.ie .
