Welcome to Alpha Omega

Chairman’s Welcome

I am honoured to be writing to you as the incoming Chairman of the London Chapter of Alpha Omega International Dental Fraternity. It gives me special pleasure to be doing this for a second time when it is the London Chapter’s 50th Anniversary.

Plans are afoot to celebrate the event, so keep an eye here, on our website for more details as they unfold.

Over these 50 years, the face of dentistry has completely changed. There are now more pressures than ever from patients and compliance, which affect all GDPs. However, I feel the original aims of Alpha Omega are as necessary as ever and we should not lose sight of what these aims offer dentists, oral health professionals and students alike.

A welcoming fraternal community, providing opportunities to attain professional excellence and promoting access to oral health care for all. Over the years I have found the fraternal element can help find solutions to running a practice and many compliance issues.

I hope our postgraduate lectures help inspire us to higher professional standards.

Finally, our Charitable Trust distributes the funds we raise to help disadvantaged groups in all parts of the world access dental care.

I set out to design a lecture series where each lecture is aimed at the general dental practitioner. As ever, a big thank you to the scientific committee, especially its Chairman Eddie Scher, for helping to put it together and put in place a quality assurance policy that we hope will ensure the lectures are targeted to our members.

I must also thank all our committee who work tirelessly behind the scenes, in their own time, especially this year when so many compliance projects have needed to be completed. Our last Chairman, Jonathan Lack, managed to get through a good number of projects, inspire us to try and get the benefits of membership out to a new audience and still raise a good sum for the Charitable Trust. He has set the bar really high for incoming Chairs and I must congratulate him on such a successful year.

Once again I must thank all our speakers who have agreed to speak and take time out, with no honorarium, not only to present their lectures but also to prepare them. 

I also thank all our generous sponsors especially Henry Schein, who support all our events and make the production and distribution of this brochure possible. If you don’t already use their Alpha Omega rewards and discounts take a look at them.

Most importantly I have to thank all our members for their continued support. Feel free to bring along guests to the events and help our London Chapter grow.

CBCT for the General Dental Practitioner

BDA 64 Wimpole Street, London, W1G 8YS

Dr. Jamil Makdissi

Course overview
Imaging in Dental Surgery has evolved dramatically in recent years. This has been dominated by the introduction, then the exponential rise in the use of Cone Beam Computed Tomography (CBCT). CBCT
is based on relatively simple technology, which complements conventional radiography and replaces Multi-Slice Medical Computed Tomography. It allows the dental team to access ‘on-site’ efficient and powerful technology for the diagnosis, planning and management of patients undergoing treatment.

Educational aims and objectives
This Masterclass will provide a detailed understanding of the clinical applications of the CBCT in Dental Surgery, the factors that optimise radiation dose and image quality, and the various software packages. It will also cover the legal aspects of prescribing, performing and reporting CBCT scans, and the current guidelines in relation to the training requirements for anyone using CBCT.

Evening lectures free for members only
Non members/ guest fee £60.00

Annenberg Charity Lecture Day

The Village Hotel, Centennial Park, Centennial Avenue, Elstree WD6 3SB

This lecture is aimed at the general dental practitioner, who is keen to learn more about the most conservative ways to improve the appearance of their patients’ dentition. Both lecturers run their own practices so are well aware of what works and is taken up by the average patient.

Dr Greenwall is one of the leading authorities on tooth whitening and has years of experience in the field. She will not only update us on the most up to date techniques, but run through assessment and avoiding pitfalls that can make the results less than ideal.

Dr Qureshi has also built a name for improving the appearance of patients’ teeth, without resorting to removal of significant amounts of tooth structure. His ethical approach increases the accessibility and affordability of cosmetic dentistry to a larger number of patients.

Dr Greenwall and Dr Qureshi use safe and predictable treatments that has the evidence to back up their approaches. This is an opportunity not to be missed. It will be a day full of useful tips, which you can take back to your practices and easily use.

There is also a full day of presentations for hygienists. The morning session with Dr Greenwall will also be suitable for hygienists to improve their knowledge on bleaching. After lunch whilst Dr Qureshi’s presents in the main hall, there will be a parallel session for hygienists to help them market and deliver bleaching. Finally, Dr Lack will update the hygienist group on peri-implantitis and its treatment.

This will be an incredible day of learning and a fantastic opportunity to connect with like-minded dental professionals. Book now
