  • Lecture: Integrating Oral cancer screening into your practice
    As Dental professionals, we can often make assumptions about the two distinct pathways of oral cancer, often neglecting to perform a comprehensive oral cancer screenings, which affects patients' prognosis and creates malpractice liability. In the absence of a comprehensive screenings, oral cancer can be diagnosed in the late-stages, when morbidity is the highest. To curb late diagnosis we must change our approach, by implementing comprehensive screenings that incorporate a systematic and thorough extra/intra- oral tactile screenings, visual screenings of all tissues, and asking appropriate, revealing questions and documenting with photos and clinical notes.

    After several years in general practice as a Dentist in Australia and London, Dr Penelope Jones worked for 25 years in a restricted Endodontic practice in Sydney. During that time she developed some problems in her head neck and back. She also noticed many other colleagues experiencing the same. This sent her on a journey of research and training in many therapies including many complimentary modalities to understand the impact, causes and how to resolve chronic pain.

    In 1988 she came across the Feldenkrais Method a somatic education system whose concepts of neuroplasticity etc are now modern buzzwords in neuroscience over 30 years later. She completed the 4 year training at Melbourne University in 1992 to be a Certified Feldenkrais practitioner. From this method, she created her Working Posture Program to deal with work related injuries and pain from sitting all day in a stressed environment. She has been teaching this through the Sydney Dental school for 20 years both at graduate and undergraduate levels. Helping some Dentists to avoid early retirement and certainly avoiding unnecessary suffering. She now runs her program through the Australian Dental Association's CPD Program Dr Jones has also spent many years teaching undergraduates in both Dental and Medical Faculties of Sydney University In 2001 she retired from Dental practice and has been focusing more on her Feldenkrais work. She has Accreditation in 3 other complimentary healing modalities and has studied and continues to study acupuncture through the Australian Medical Acupuncture Group.

  • Lecture: Improving Oral Health Outcomes: Communicate Before Educate, Advocate or Anticipate Abstract
    Dental disease is one of the great preventable public health challenges of the 21st century. Despite the availability of effective prevention and treatment methods, we have seen only small improvements in oral health status over the past few decades among GCC populations, with dental caries prevalence rates up to 90%. The overwhelming evidence reflected in the disease burden, the unmet need, and lack of access to proper dental care continues to be a pervasive issue, in addition to the mounting cost of this “silent epidemic”, with significant spending on restorative care for oral disease that could have been prevented, or if caught earlier treated, with lower-cost and lower-risk interventions.

    There are a number of barriers and practical challenges to achieving the goal of reducing the burden of oral disease, which is more critical than ever as many individuals lack basic health literacy skills. Moreover the movement towards vision 2030 and healthcare privatization, that implies the importance of providing future and existing dental care providers and their respective teams including dental hygienists with the skills needed in order to achieve better oral health outcomes, and so for the vision to succeed.

    This presentation will discuss the potential role dental hygienists can play to help achieve 2030 vision oral health goals, and the skills needed to face the challenges of providing adequate and appropriate communication in the patient–provider education process to change perceptions of oral health, or provider-policymaker advocating process to overcome barriers by replicating effective programs and proven efforts.
