Ian Corbett

Today we hear from Ian Corbett. Ian is an NHS consultant oral surgeon and honorary senior lecturer in Newcastle with a specialist oral surgery private practice covering the north of England. He is a previous chair of the IADR Dental Anesthetic Research Group and also past recipient of a European Federation for the Advancement of Anaesthesia in Dentistry award.

Titled ‘Local anaesthesia – evidence based success’, Ian Corbett will give an insight into the evidence for using the equipment, solutions and techniques dentists have in their armamentarium to the best of their ability. He will also highlight how to manage difficult anaesthetic situations.

‘Successful local anaesthesia is paramount to almost all that we do in clinical dentistry,’ Ian Corbett says. ‘Dental injections and dental pain are frequently cited by patients as reasons for non-attendance. If we can achieve pain free dentistry we also gain patient satisfaction. As well as making our work less stressful.

‘My research interest over many years has been local anaesthesia. I have had the pleasure of working with the team at Septodont throughout. Septodont supports independent research internationally and seeks advice and evidence from leading research teams on product development. This is apparent in the quality of its pain management range.

‘Successful anaesthesia starts with selecting the right equipment and having confidence in its quality. In my experience, Septodont consistently delivers.

Why are you sponsoring the Online Dentistry Show?

‘Pain management is the core message from Septodont,’ a spokesperson for Septodont says. ‘We have always been keen to educate dentists as well as provide first-class products to them.

‘Obviously face-to-face meetings are out of the question at the moment. But that doesn’t mean we should stop being there for the dental practitioner. Which is why Septodont is delighted to “attend” FMC’s Online Dentistry Show. And to sponsor a first class speaker, Ian  Corbett, who has both an incredible knowledge and passion for local dental anaesthesia.’
