Transformative Endodontics; Turning Difficult into Doable

Endodontic treatment can be a stressful procedure for both the patient and clinician alike although with the adoption of some fundamental techniques the stress can be transformed into a controlled and predictable therapy. In order to manage the full spectrum of endodontic care, specific knowledge and techniques well implemented can prepare you to take on even the most complicated of cases. This lecture will provide an insight into a broad range of clinical techniques endodontists routinely use to allow you to identify risks before commencing treatment, manage complications if they occur and overcome those more complex endodontic presentations.

A Spoonful of Sugar

One in three Australian children experience tooth decay by the age of 5-6 years, making dental caries one of the most prevalent diseases in our community. The link between dietary sugars and dental caries is a long-standing and relatively uncontroversial one, yet this is rarely mentioned amidst public debate about the role of sugar in obesity and diabetes. The average Australian teenager consumes around 20 teaspoons of added sugar per day, and sugar is hidden in many of the foods that we consume daily. Our food environment is a major contributor to the growing burden of non-communicable diseases. Recent attention has focused on a range of policy measures designed to reduce our addiction to added sugar – a tax on sugary drinks, restrictions on advertising and sponsorship or improved food labelling. There is an important role for dental practitioners to lend their voice to this public advocacy and health education, and to encourage healthier eating for their patients.

‘Occupational Hygiene’ – What is That?! Perfect Posture, Ergonomics and Efficiency – Are They Really Possible?

‘Occupational hygiene’ - the science of preventing ill health from work activities. Not being part of a team doing better dentistry, but be the team doing dentistry better!
Challenge yourself to abandon some accepted practices, to work in a different way – perform team approach dentistry. It’s all about our patients and other staff members …correct? But who’s looking after you? What are you doing today to ensure that your body is able to perform at an optimal level? Review your working techniques to ensure you are working at your maximum potential and output, with as little stress on your body as possible. If you’re neglecting yourself and working through pain or discomfort then you’re doing so at the expense of your health and wellbeing, not to mention future team productivity and practice profitability.
Overall prevalence of musculoskeletal disorders in dental clinicians may be as high as 96%! Ergonomic interventions can help minimise common musculoskeletal risks for all members of the dental team - be familiar with essential ergonomic principles.

‘THINKing in Dentistry’

Why is it that some people get your point straight away while others never seem to understand you? Have you ever wondered why some team members work well together and others don’t? Some teams can be productive and fun to work with and others are unproductive and somewhat mundane? Or why the same person can do extremely well in one job and poorly in another? We all think differently. Identifying thinking preferences and blind spots can provide a significantly increased level of personal understanding. Just as awareness of differences in thinking style preferences within your team can build acceptance and understanding. There are no right or wrong thinking preferences.
Some of us like facts while others prefer ideas. Some of us trust systems while others place faith in feelings. This is cognitive diversity and is the latent source of our ability to succeed as a team and find meaningful roles for everyone involved. ‘Whole Brain Thinking’ is the key to unlocking this potential through better communication and collaboration.
Fostering a positive psychology approach, ‘Whole Brain Thinking’ is a preference-based model developed from an understanding of neuroscience. It provides a validated positive and inclusive way to identify thinking preferences without pigeonholing or nonproductive labelling.
Let thinking be your competitive advantage. There is no simpler or more effective means to promote thinking agility, teamwork, leadership, and innovation. Embrace the diverse thinking of your team - align and utilise the full range of your team’s thinking preferences and differences.
