Antibiotics are perhaps most frequently prescribed drugs in dentistry. This occurs despite guidelines stating antibiotics should be restricted to adjunct use only, secondary to dental treatment where possible. Increasing antimicrobial prescribing in dentistry has prompted academic attention to the principles of Antimicrobial Stewardship. As a result, significant changes have occurred in the literature to recommended protocols for antibiotic prophylaxis and treatment, both in the choice of drugs used but also the dosage, duration and frequency. Drug choice for people who claim antibiotic allergy has also dramatically changed. Additional changes included in the new Australian Therapeutic Guidelines – Oral and Dental will be outlined in this talk.

Dental implants have been a routine part of dentistry for over 30 years and following their commercial application there was a sense of hubris that many restorative challenges had been solved.

Dental implants have been a routine part of dentistry for over 30 years and following their commercial application there was a sense of hubris that many restorative challenges had been solved. However, despite the use of digital and CAD/CAM technology to help drive down the cost of placing and restoring dental implants and teeth, these methods of treatment are still out of reach for many patients. We need to consider the implications that treatment decisions made today will have on the long-term maintenance burden of our patients in the long-term. Andrew will share an accumulation of clinical and research based knowledge to help with your patient’s treatment journey when considering dental implants and oral rehabilitation.

Prof Grant Schofield

Grant Schofield is Professor of Public Health and Director of the Human Potential Centre at AUT. His research and teaching interests are broadly based in public health, especially the prevention and treatment of chronic disease. The way lifestyle can be used either as “medicine” or to prevent these problems in the first place has been the focus of his research career. He takes a wide approach as it has become obvious that treating lifestyle behaviours in isolation wasn’t providing effective solutions. Grant states, we needed a complete reorientation in two areas. The first is the movement away from discourses about disease to discourses about wellbeing. He terms this “positive health” and his work in this area paves a more useful framework for promoting the sorts of behaviours which do, in the end, prevent and treat chronic disease. They do this in a way that may be more engaging and drive investment in health as a goal, rather than the prevention and treatment of sickness. This approach draws heavily upon the work in positive psychology. The second, is the more controversial work Prof Schofield has led in challenging the evidence behind our public health nutrition and physical activity guidelines. He has developed expertise in alternative approaches; especially carbohydrate restriction.
