BDJ Team volume 5, Article number: 18077 (2018) | Download Citation

It is often said that the mouth is the gateway to the body and the links between oral health and systemic health support this.

Melonie Prebble (pictured, left) and Victoria Wilson (pictured, right) will be exploring this topic in the Hygienist & Therapist Symposium at the British Dental Conference and Dentistry Show this May.

They said: ‘The dental practice is a good platform from which to discuss and potentially prevent both oral and systemic diseases. This is an exciting time to explore this topic and how it can contribute to our patient care.

‘We will be covering the subject as broadly as possible. Delegates will certainly take home a good overview of the current thinking on this subject. We hope to give them more confidence and improve their verbal skills to impart their new knowledge. Dental hygienists and dental therapists attending should feel empowered and motivated to apply this within the clinical setting.’

Melonie and Victoria will join an inspiring speaker line-up including Iain Chapple, Marina Harris, Elaine Tilling, Deborah Lyle, Ben Atkins, Tim Ives, Fiona Ellwood and Chris Barrow.
