Seminar on the future of Oral Health


20 April 2012

Professor Chris Peck, Dean, invites you to learn more about the Faculty of Dentistry's research on oral health.

SPEAKERS


Associate Professor Peter Dennison

Teeth for life - what we dreamed of...but there are some big challenges ahead.
In just the next 8 years the proportion of the population over the age of 65 with any natural teeth is expected to jump to 97%. Associate Professor Dennison will outline the challenges that face oral health in the next few years and look at changes needed to meet the challenge. There are points at which the evidence base gets as thin on the ground as a stiletto heel...!

Dr Manish Arora

Changing Face of Dentistry
From doctors and dentists prescribing cigarettes to their patients, to public health policies banning smoking in public places. From intervention-based dentistry to evidence-based prevention and minimal intervention, the practice of health care, including dentistry, has come a long way in the past 50 years. The Faculty is leading the way in many of these paradigm shifts, and Dr Arora's talk will describe some the exciting work being undertaken in this area.

The seminar is an opportunity to hear about this exciting research and its powerful impact on the future of oral health.
