Emerging technologies in dentistry seminar

If you are one of the many clinicians who are sitting on the fence and watching the parade of new and emerging technologies in dentistry pass by and wondering just how applicable they are to your practice, then this seminar is for you.


In April and May 2006, Professor Laurie Walsh, the Head of the University of Queensland Dental School and a notable user and commentator on everything new and high tech, will deliver a national series of no-nonsense full day lectures designed as an annual update of the latest and greatest.

"This one day lecture course is designed to guide the clinician through the forest of emerging technologies," Professor Walsh said' "and it has a real emphasis on the practical aspects, i.e. 'learn today, use tomorrow'. It covers four major themes that are impacting on clinical practice at the general practice level and will provide a comprehensive summary of each individually as well as how they interrelate."

Topics to be covered include proximal caries detection; subgingival calculus detection using fluorescence; saliva-based tests; chemo-mechanical caries removal; smart burs; particle beam technologies; lasers; light-activated disinfection of deep carious lesions, periodontal pockets and root canals; ozone therapy for root caries; enamel lightening; fluorosis reversal; white spot lesion reversal; photothermal whitening; ozone-boosted liquid whitening; photochemical whitening; and much more.

The lecture, designed to be an honest, non-partisan look at the gamut of new technologies, will include limited opportunities to try some of the products at the extended lunch break. It will also conclude with a panel discussion with Professor Walsh and three local dentists who can field questions on their experiences with various aspects of the subject matter.

Professor Walsh is widely known for his work in developing and assessing new technologies for clinical practice, and for his ability in lectures to make complex topics easier to understand.
