Placement of dental implants has massively increased worldwide over the last 20 years. The major concern would be that many teeth are extracted and replaced with implants when that same tooth can be endodontically treated and then restored. The literature on the survival rate of a root treated tooth with its crown is the same as a single tooth implant with its crown. Are patients given this information as part of their consent to treatment? Are those patients in fact given a choice? Treatment planning in those cases where an implant is a possibility should always involve the endodontist. If the the tooth can be restored, the periodontal condition is within reason, the only question to answer is can the endodontics be completed to a good standard?
Technological advances in non surgical endodontics both conventional and retreatment now enable us to treat many cases that in the past would be considered as impossible. Shaping canals, irrigation protocols and three dimensional obturation has never been easier. Management of endodontic failure and endodontic retreatment is now predictable and within the skills of many practitioners and not only endodontists. Treatment planning and CBCT enable us to help the patient make the best decision about their dental care. The operating microscope, crown and post removal, GP removal, broken instrument retrieval and perforation repair with bioceramic products can prolong tooth survival when the tooth is adequately restored after. When given the option all patients would want to save their tooth.

What do neuroscience, empathy maps and kanban boards have to do with dentistry in the digital era? In dental practice, we have our patients who come to see us with their individual needs, wants and desires… and we have the ever increasing technological solutions, either at our finger tips or to be invested in…
Digital technology helps us to perform more predictable dentistry – but more than that, at the very beginning of the patient journey it can help us to diagnose more comprehensively, and to order our thoughts and findings in a way that our patients can understand. To be the most effective, we need systems so that our digital tools can collaborate with the needs of the individual so that smiles are not just designed by numbers, but by understanding, empathising, inter-disciplinary knowledge and with informed clinical decision making leading to informed consent.

ICON resin infiltration is an important aspect to the armamentarium of a minimally-invasive restorative dentist. Not only does this provide the dentist with an opportunity to minimise the invasion into the patients tooth structure, but also allows for maximisation of aesthetics. The presentation will also focus on simple cases of resin infiltration and when it is important to consider recruiting adjunctive strategies in the management of advanced hypoplastic lesions or molar-incisor hypomineralisation (or MIH) cases. Finally a new generation nanohybrid composite restorative material will be discussed and advised how this can be used as an adjunct when undertaken severe cases whilst still being used for posterior restorative restorations.

This short lecture is specifically designed to demonstrate how to plan and execute production of your cosmetic cases , it is aimed at the less experienced Clinician but relevant to anyone who is curious about our formla for success – I hope to show how your approach to prep design will have a dramatic effect on the case’s outcome.
We will discuss the development of this most exciting discipline, the materials that are at our disposal and we will consider how our approach has changed over the years – Whether you want to get involved or not, the one constant is that your patients will always need to feel good about their smiles. On the other hand you can always refer them to someone else to take the adoration!

This presentation will introduce delegates to the psychology of wellbeing and success. Furthermore, it will teach dentists how to attain ‘dental nirvana’.
Dental professionals face numerous challenges in their working and personal lives that can lead to feelings of stress, fear and negativity. These challenges can also result in depression or worse.
This lecture will discuss how dentists can avoid falling into these negative states by making use of the latest knowledge, advances and technologies in the field of psychology. It will also look at how dentists can take control of their self development to become the best that they can possibly be.
Dr Bashar Al-Naher, Principal Dentist of The Care Dental Group has been passionately pursuing the field of clinical psychology and self development for 35 years. He obtained a Masters degree in clinical psychology and hypnotherapy from UCL. He is a practitioner, Master practitioner and Life Coach in NLP(neuro linguistic programming). He is a qualified clinical hypnotherapist and has knowledge of many of the modern systems of psychotherapy such as CBT and Mindfulness.
Dr Bashar invented the Enjoyable Dentistry Technique, which is the only technique in dentistry that allows patients not only not to feel any pain but also to positively enjoy dental treatment. He developed the Empowering Psychology System (EPS), which combines and adds to the best and most effective psychological self change techniques and has adapted this system for dentists. His course ‘the psychology of wellbeing, success and abundance for dentists-attaining dental nirvana’ is the culmination of his life work in allowing dentists to be the best within themselves and in their achievements.

Continued tooth movement is one of the most unappreciated problems in dentistry.
Much dentistry is also carried out too late- by the time it is identified, too much damage is done for many patients to be able to afford the optimal solutions.
Arguably no patient should ever need a full mouth rehabilitation, if enough dentists had the confidence to treat patients sooner.
This lecture will also show how a good orthodontic and occlusal scheme go hand in hand- so correctly planned orthodontic set ups are essential for functional success.
He will look at cases treated over 25 years and the approach he has taken that can be applied to any practice which focuses on prevention of wear and maintenance of function and aesthetics.
This lecture will also look and question some of the traditional pathways of problem/ sales- led cosmetic dentistry. Are we focused on treating the right patients?
There is an argument that cosmetic dentists take far more risk by treating patients not known to them with treatments that the patients don’t really understand the benefits of, other than aesthetics.
This lecture will explore the idea that using a longer term approach to patients, and via relation- building, more treatment can be carried out on patients who are better educated?
Tif will cover some of the diagnostic processes you can use to identify the collapse of the dentition, how to communicate these with your daily patients and how to treat these at an early stage simply,
affordably and non-invasively using methods such as the Dahl principle.
