Event Details


Dear Colleagues,

The Annual Scientific Meeting (ASM) of the Faculty of Dentistry RCSI will take place on Friday, November 1st and Saturday, November 2nd, at the state-of-the-art RCSI No. 26 York Street building, Dublin, Ireland. We are delighted to announce that this year’s ASM is a conjoint meeting with the Association of British Academic Oral & Maxillofacial Surgeons (ABAOMS), the British Association of Oral Surgeons (BAOS) and the Irish Association of Oral Surgeons (IAOS).
The programme aims to address the challenges faced by Oral Surgery practice in the 21st Century across all patient ages; “from the cradle to the grave”. Highlights will be great Keynote speakers from NYU, UK and Ireland.

For the child patient we will tackle subjects as diverse as the future of oral surgery delivery post-Brexit, appropriate CBCT use in paediatric patients and tomorrows antibiotics for today’s children.
For the young adult we will explore early identification and implications of dependency, resilience in the young surgeon and managing the increasing demands and expectations of the younger generation of patients for oro-facial cosmetic surgery, as well as dispelling the myths around the rationale for orthognathic surgery.
In the adult, we will explore what is new in TMD management, managing risk in oral surgery practice and we hope to have a debate on adoption of augmentative surgery versus alternate methods of enhancing bone and soft tissues prior to dental implants.
We will be looking at how and why head and neck cancer patients frequently develop debilitating pain and how to manage it in our surgeries and the new evidence base for prophylactic dental extractions in patients about to receive or receiving radio/chemotherapy, the results of which might surprise you.
With the aging patient we will look at the challenges of identification and consent of patients with dementia, polypharmacy in the elderly and its implications for oral surgery and cutting edge science of managing impaired wound repair in the older patient.
