Stay on Topic at The Dentistry Show 2014

Friday 28th February & Saturday 1st March, NEC in Birmingham

 

The introduction of Direct Access for dental hygienists and therapists almost one year ago remains a highly debated topic in the UK. Some would even argue that confusion over the ‘small print’ as it were, has prevented many dental professionals from making the most of the opportunities available as a result of the concept.

 

Despite our reservations in the UK however, the idea of Direct Access is not a new intuitive to the global dental industry. In the Netherlands for example, while dental hygienists have a slightly different clinical remit to those in the UK, Direct Access became legal in 2006.

 

Among the two-day lecture programme at The Dentistry Show 2014, Corrie Jongbloed-Zoet will be exploring the concept of Direct Access. As President of the Dutch Dental Hygienists Association (NVM) and Vice President of the International Federation of Dental Hygienists (IFDH), she is in the perfect position to share her experiences from the Netherlands, as part of the Hygienist & Therapist Symposium.

 

“During my session, I will discuss the direct accessibility of the dental hygienist in the Netherlands,” says Corrie. “I will look at the content of the four-year curriculum for the dental hygienist’s education and the considerations that led to this decision. Furthermore, I will speak about the changing roles of the providers of oral health care  - dentists, dental hygienists and dental assistants – and I will show how these changes will influence the oral health care profession with an example of a 'new style practice' with eight dental hygienists and one dentist!

           

“I hope delegates will take away new ideas about the organisation of oral health care, and be inspired to take on a bigger role and more responsibilities as dental hygienists, with the focus on prevention. This will of course not only be in the interests of patients’ oral health, but will also benefit patients’ general health and well-being.”

 

The Hygienists & Therapist Symposium will also host an open discussion on Direct Access, providing delegates with the chance to voice their own personal queries, fears and success stories, while seeking all the information and advice they may need from experts.

 

Other lectures will be presented by world-class speakers like Elaine Tilling, Chris Bell, Dr Roger Yates, Professor Avijit Banjeree and Seema Sharma, who will cover a spectrum of topics from occlusion to periodontal procedures, local anaesthesias and preventive dentistry.

 

Additional features such as the CORE CPD Theatre, hands-on workshops, PerioLounge, ADI Implant Theatre and STO Lounge will also provide delegates with further opportunities to gain hours of vCPD while developing and broadening their knowledge and skills.

 

As Corrie concludes, the Show really does offer something for everyone.

 

“I always encourage my colleagues to attend events like this. Not only to get involved in the industry, but also to keep informed of the latest developments in the field of oral health and oral hygiene. And of course, meeting new people during the Show, lunch and coffee breaks is an important aspect and benefit to all.”
