Human Factors In Clinical Practice: Developing An Open Reporting Culture In Dentistry

09/02/2021 7:30pm - 10:00pm

BDA 64 Wimpole Street, London, W1G 8YS & Online

Prof Simon Wright & Captain Steve Hawkins

MSc BDS PGCTLCP PGDip Implant Dentistry & 787 Training Captain British Airways and Director PWF Solutions Ltd

Summary

Captain Hawkins will look at how aviation has developed structures and techniques to foster a “Just Culture” which promotes an open reporting philosophy. He will explain how lessons are learned from incidents and how those lessons are shared across aviation as an industry as well as how feedback loops are created and are used to support, educate, train, and improve the skills of those in operational roles on the flight deck.

Professor Wright will discuss how the dental practitioner and the dental team are often considered to be infallible.  We deal with the most intimate aspects of human life and given such responsibility we are not allowed to make an error, and if we do the patient holds us accountable. Professor Wright will talk about the prevalence and significance of errors in dentistry, and with the aid of real life litigation cases offers advice of how we can minimize errors within our practice teams.

Deep into 21st Century: Will Technology Change Your Practice?

25/05/2021 7:30pm - 10:00pm

BDA 64 Wimpole Street, London, W1G 8YS & Online

Professor Ervin Weiss & Dr. Michal Dekel-Steinkeller 

DMD Former Head of School of Dental Medicine Tel Aviv University & DMD Specialist in Prosthodontics

Lecture Summary

Conventional dental care cannot prevent the recurrence of caries or prevents the progression of periodontal diseases. Secondary caries and periodontal breakdown are nearly half of our dental work. Thus, routine treatment modalities, contradict our commitment to our patients; to provide the best treatment for maintaining oral health for life. What will best serve our patients’ health and quality of life? Which of the emerging technologies, and concepts, will become disruptive? Which will change our own practice for good? And finally, what is best for us and our practice in the post-COVID-19 era? Examples from our private practice of complex cases with various treatment options, modalities, and workflows, will be used to assess the role of new concepts for the benefit of our patients. Assessment will include health and biological benefits, morbidity, and patient convenience. The following will be presented and discussed: – 4 handed dental treatment concept, 2 operators working simultaneously on the patient, – intraoral scanner, and digital communication and workflows – deep sedation administered by an anesthesiologist, – uncompromised one-day-treatment workflow, and – increasing longevity of treatment outcome by coping with the etiology of infectious oral diseases.
