SESSION 1

BETTER OUTCOMES FROM DIFFICULT STARTS

The term ‘safeguarding’ children was unknown to paediatric dentistry until the mid-2000s. Since then this concept, of not only protecting children from maltreatment but taking wider measures to promote their overall wellbeing, has moved to the heart of our daily practice. This session gives us the opportunity to hear different perspectives and new insights from experts in their fields. What is it that can really make a difference in vulnerable children’s lives? And what can be done about health inequalities? This session meets the requirements to contribute to your ‘Intercollegiate document’ safeguarding competencies at Level 2, 3 or 4.

UNCRC Article 19: You have the right to be protected from violence, abuse or neglect.

UNCRC Article 20: If your parents are not able to look after you, your government should arrange for you to be cared for by someone else.

UNCRC Article 24:  You have the right to healthcare and to what you need to help you stay healthy.

AFTERNOON PROGRAMME

SESSION 2

DECISIONS, DECISIONS

This back-to-basics session has been planned in response to requests for more conference content relevant to everyday practice. After all, the vast majority of children are cared for in primary care and  access to local, timely specialist advice can sometimes be hard to come by, especially in a pandemic.  So we have asked our speakers to review the fundamental principles of  holistic decision-making for children with common but challenging dental conditions.  Rooted in scientific evidence and underpinned by clinical experience, they will equip you to make the best possible treatment plans for, and with, your patients. 

Extract …or not? Refer …or not? Fill …or not? Good decisions can save your young patient, their family and yourself a whole heap of trouble!

SESSION 3

EAT, SLEEP, PLAY, REPEAT

In our clinical practice we are privileged to chat with children and families about all aspects of their daily lives… as they eat, sleep and play. But how can we stay up-to-date with the latest guidelines and policy, ensure our own advice doesn’t conflict  with that of other professionals, reassure when things are going well yet be ready to signpost children to further help when needed?
