On Tuesday March 23, hygienist and founder of The Smile Revolution, Victoria Wilson, will facilitate a roundtable debate at the BDIA Dental Showcase On Demand highlighting the scope of an oral health promotion incubator. The objective of the participatory roundtable event is to stimulate a conversation about developing opportunities in oral health promotion, pushing delegates to think creatively and explore new and untapped scope within their roles as dental professionals. This roundtable discussion is aimed at every dental professional who wishes to have a greater impact on oral health improvements by coming up with new initiatives in the practice and the wider community.
During the roundtable discussion, Victoria will focus on the current challenges within oral health promotion and engage with participants to explore opportunities to help overcome their existing challenges. She commented, “I have observed many positive changes in the people who participate in the Smile Revolution courses I run, and the initiatives they develop have the scope to bring about real change, as well as enhancing their careers and the teams of which these dental professionals are part.”
She added, “The key message I hope to convey is that there is huge scope to develop an imaginative approach to oral health promotion, and there are more opportunities than you might think for dental professionals to tap into. I will be concluding the roundtable with some practical tips to help delegates explore oral health promotional opportunities further – from making projects financially viable to making them sustainable for the long term.”
Victoria will be joined by Preetee Hylton, a graduate from one of Smile Revolutions’ oral health incubator courses, along with Laura McClune from Philips Oral Healthcare. Philips has supported Victoria Wilson’s Smile Revolution courses throughout 2020 and into 2021 by providing sponsored places. It is also sponsoring this event and encourages BDIA Dental Showcase delegates to register quickly for the roundtable, as the session can only accept a maximum of 30 places.
Philips is also hosting three lectures during the BDIA Dental Showcase On Demand. Delegates are invited to join Alif Moosajee on Tuesday March 23 as he explores the traits of being a good dentist and business owner. Dental hygienist and oral health entrepreneur Megan Fairhall will be lecturing on March 24 on the theme of health and wellness as a precursor to the launch of her first podcast series on the same subject, which is also sponsored by Philips. On March 26 Melanie Pomphrett will be speaking about the ‘Zoom boom’ and how the whole dental team can optimise tooth whitening in practice using the Zoom Whitening systems.
