Dr Cockcroft said: ‘COVID-19 will change a number of things within dentistry. This, along with the latest data from the Adult Survey published in June this year, means that active caries prevention is crucial in older adults. I look forward to hearing delegates’ thoughts on the future during the live chat session.’
