Missed out on this week’s dental news? No problem, here’s what happened over the past seven days…
On Monday, Sara Hurley told us to prepare for a ‘new era of dental care’ in her letter to the profession. She suggests there will be a widening of NHS urgent dental care centres before we go back to offering routine dental care.
We’ve been hearing stories about your experiences during the coronavirus pandemic. Chandni Nakum interviews one foundation dentist who is currently volunteering in an ICU.
We hear about island isolation, and how dentists on some UK islands are dealing with lockdown.
Looking forward, Nissit Patel has reviewed the literature and summarises how dentists can protect themselves and their patients after the lockdown ends.
We look to Houston, Texas, to see what lessons we can learn as dental practices there start to reopen.
And finally, we saw the latest ‘extremely concerning’ NHS figures showing 20% of Year 6 children are obese. James Goolnik gives his thoughts pointing out that habits need to be set up early, including a shift to sugar-free alternatives.
Make sure you take a look at the latest webinars happening over on Dentistry Study Club. Next week we have:
- Essentials of periodontal care in general practice – with Reena Wadia – Monday 11 May at 19:00
- Utilising direct access for hygienists and therapists – with Anna Middleton – Thursday 14 May at 19:00.
