Lecture Synopsis:

Motivational interviewing - Tabitha Acret

We know that successful oral health outcomes are only possible with patient cooperation, however as much as we would love our patients to brush twice a day, clean between their teeth daily and make their oral health a priority we know this is not the case for many of our patients. Its likely that some of our patients will not do it at all. Is this a lack of motivation or does it have something to do with the way we as clinicians motivate our patients in their appointments . The traditional method of oral hygiene instructions where patients are "spoken to " and not involved in the process does not work , patients need to make their own decisions on what they would like their oral health outcomes to be and set their own goals on how they will achieve them. this lecture will go through motivational interviewing and modern techniques for motivating the patient to take harness of their own oral health and improve their long term outcomes

Airflow used for restorative preparation - Prof. Ian Meyers OAM

A dream clean adhesive regime.

Applications and Implications of Airflow Prophylaxis in Restorative Dentistry Contemporary restorative dentistry relies on developing the best possible adhesive interface between the tooth structure and the restoration. Key to this is creating the ideal tooth surface to ensure optimal mechanical and chemical bonding when using adhesive restorative materials. Clinicians frequently use a range of etchants, conditioners, primers and bonding agents in the adhesive process, but they may not achieve ideal results if the tooth surface has not been effectively cleaned prior to the surface preparation. This hands-on workshop will look at the use of the EMS airflow prophylaxis to create more predictable tooth surface preparation for preventive and restorative procedures.

Topics to be covered include:

  • Understanding the concepts of Clean, Protect, Restore and Maintain
  • Predictable tooth surface cleaning and protecting exposed root surfaces
  • Optimising airflow prophylaxis powders to various restorative procedures
  • Optimising adhesive interfaces and increasing longevity of restorations
  • Managing subgingival restorations and gingival inflammation
  • Patient friendly procedures – making it easier for the young, old, and anxious patients
  • Restoration maintenance and polishing

Career or Job? - A/Prof. Deborah Cockrell

When does a career become a job?

We can all remember the excitement of being newly-graduated and meeting new patients and challenges all the time. While it was stressful at times, work was stimulating and dynamic, involved problem-solving and was energising.For some people, their job is still exactly that. How do they keep growing and developing while in the same role? Other people seek change. What options are there for new careers? Most of us look for some sort of hybrid option. What are the options in our chosen field?

This presentation aims to provide insight into;

  • how to structure your thoughts about career options,
  • who to ask for help
  • some real-life examples of career opportunities
