Online Dentistry Show: Paul Reaney – dental sleep medicine
Coming this September, the Online Dentistry Show is putting on the very first virtual exhibition in UK dentistry with support from gold sponsors, Carestream.
The first-of-its-kind event is coming on 4 and 5 of September. With a host of industry leaders and speakers, delegates can also get 12 hours of free enhanced CPD.
The event will allow delegates to walk through a virtual exhibition hall. Here, they can talk directly with suppliers via video link, audio or live chat.
Covering the GDC’s most pertinent recommended topics, it will also host leading speakers from around the profession.
And the entire event is completely free to attend. To register, simply visit onlinedentistryshow.vfairs.com/en.
During the programme, Carestream Dental will present Dr Paul Reaney from Dentistry @ Markethill in Northern Ireland. He will share his extensive expertise on the topic of sleep apnoea and its management by dental professionals.
His lecture is titled: ‘Changing lives with every breath…dental sleep medicine’.
‘What many people don’t realise is that the impact of conditions such as sleep apnoea is huge,’ he says.
‘Acute sleep loss can quickly lead to problems such as anxiety, stress and even day-to-day injuries. Long-term effects can even be life threatening. Diabetes and heart attacks are just some of the conditions associated with lack of sleep that professionals need to be aware of.
‘Effective sleep dentistry can literally change patients’ lives, not only improving the quality but also the quantity of sleep. Research has found that those who experience interrupted sleep are likely to see their lifetimes reduced by as much as 12 years.
‘Using the CS 3600 intraoral scanner plays a valuable contribution to this patient care. This is not only life changing but life extending. The completely digital workflow helps me achieve patient satisfaction and streamline treatment at the same time.
‘Patients love that they have access to a state-of-the-art treatment option. This helps to build patient-practitioner trust. Plus, the software is intuitive and the wand itself is straightforward, helping the whole process to become stress free.
‘The support from Carestream Dental is also fantastic. They really provide that personal connection that you don’t often get in the digital age, and that makes all the difference.’
The live lecture will take place on Friday 4 September, from 09:40 to 10:40.
