Volume 3 Issue 5

Sugar is everywhere you look in the media at the moment. Rising numbers of children are going to hospital to have their rotten teeth removed under general anaesthetic.

This May issue of BDJ Team also looks at the extremely sensitive topic of Female Genital Mutilation (FGM). You might at first think that this has nothing to do with working in dentistry, but dental professionals have a duty to protect all child patients that come into the practice.
