IDA Annual Conference
IDA Annual Conference
3 Fáilte go Gaillimh 2019! The Annual Conference 2019 returns to the City of the Tribes on Ireland’s beautiful Atlantic coast. This is a fantastic opportunity to bring along your dental team for a fun, sociable and educational team-building experience. Navigating the Future will be a conference with a difference! I am very grateful to this year’s Conference Committee, chaired by Dr Dermot Canavan (Dr Aoife Crotty, Dr Maurice Fitzgerald, Dr Alastair Woods, Dr Helen Walsh, Dr Danny Collins and Elaine Hughes) who have put together a world-class scientific programme for this year’s event.
We are extremely fortunate to have world-recognised experts such as Prof. Van Haywood, Dr Shane White, Dr Frank Lobbezoo and Prof. Avi Banerjee, as well as many more. The very best of local Irish talent will also present over the three days, including Mr Conor Barry, Dr Paul Quinlan, Dr Pat Cleary, Dr Seamus Sharkey and Dr Claire Healy.
We will of course have two programmes running simultaneously on Friday and Saturday so delegates can choose which programme to attend. A full dental nurses’ programme will take place on Saturday. This year I am particularly delighted to welcome Dr Niamh O’Sullivan, Professor Emerita of Visual Culture (National College of Art and Design, Ireland), and founding Curator of Ireland’s Great Hunger Museum, Quinnipiac University, Connecticut, who will give what I believe to be a fascinating lecture on The Great Famine. She has curated many exhibitions, including the Famine exhibition, Coming Home: Art and the Great Hunger, which attracted almost 100,000 visitors last year.
As every year, the dental trade show will showcase new and advanced products, equipment and technology from the dental industry. All members of the dental team will have the opportunity to discuss new products and various advancements in services with our dental trade colleagues.

CONFERENCE COMMITTEE Elaine Hughes Helen Walsh Alastair Woods Dermot Canavan, Chair Daniel Collins Aoife Crotty Maurice Fitzgerald
PRE-CONFERENCE PROGRAMME THURSDAY APRIL 4 Root to tip – endodontic and restorative treatment revisited Dr Pat Cleary Endodontic treatment is an area of dentistry that requires: a) an investigative mind, in order to determine an accurate diagnosis; b) a science-based mind to assist in a biological approach to treatment; c) an artist’s appreciation of preparation; and, d) an engineer’s approach to restoration.
This hands- on course will cover all these areas. Learning objectives: n make a definitive endodontic diagnosis; n understand the cause of the problem and what is required for a successful outcome; n embrace the art of endodontics; and, n decide the requirements for the restoration of an endodontically treated tooth. The art and science of posterior composites Dr Ian Cline Direct posterior composites have become commonplace in general dental practice. However, clinical experience and studies have shown that compared to dental amalgam they can create problems such as sensitivity, secondary caries and food packing due to poor contact areas.
Ian believes in the philosophy of ‘Better, Safer and Faster’ when it comes to composite placement. In his presentation and hands-on session, Ian will present practical solutions to everyday problems, and show how applying the theory can lead to clinical success. Learning objectives: n to discuss the latest concepts in posterior composites; n to appreciate strategies for dealing with the main problems that dentists have with posterior composites, including the use of rubber dam, sectional matrices and bulk-fill techniques; n “C-Factor” – why is it important and steps to minimise its influence; n how to assess the occlusal scheme and build the restoration to minimise adjustments; n to be able to select appropriate instrumentation for placement and manipulation of composite; n to simplify finishing and polishing of posterior composites; n to look at the management of posterior root-filled teeth and how SDR flow+ and ceramic onlays may be the best solution; n uses of the deep marginal elevation (DME) technique; and, n hands-on, Class I restoration, and Class II restoration with use of a sectional matrix system.
Achieving compliance – frequently asked questions Drs Eamon Croke and Nick Armstrong Chair: Dr Jane Renehan This interactive workshop aims to examine the topic of achieving compliance by answering the most frequently asked questions. Based on their wide range of compliance experience, the presenters will demonstrate that simple solutions are normally the best solutions! Participants will gain insight into: 1) the recently published HIQA infection control standards; 2) the Health and Safety Authority’s Guidance on Hazards in Dentistry; and, 3) Dental Council Codes of Practice.
As delegates will be invited to submit compliance queries in advance of the workshop additional topics may be included. The workshop is recommended for dentists, dental hygienists, practice managers and senior dental nurses. Learning objectives: n consider essential elements of compliance requirements and the role of statutory bodies; n review the extensive range of resources and support tools available on the Best Practice section of the IDA website; n examine the key areas of compliance under the headings dentist, dental team and clinical setting; and, n provide participants with easily done improvement tips to make compliance achievable.

Facial aesthetics - botulinum toxin Dr Brian Franks With the population becoming more aesthetically aware, cosmetic dentistry and now facial aesthetics are rapidly developing disciplines within the dental profession. Dental professionals are the ideal healthcare practitioners to combine non-surgical facial aesthetics with dental aesthetic treatments to provide a total ‘facial aesthetic’ outcome.
Upper face injections with botulinum toxin are the most popular non-surgical cosmetic treatments worldwide. The use of botulinum toxin for treatments specific to dentistry, for example bruxism and gummy smiles, will also be discussed, followed by live demonstrations. Learning objectives Attendance at this session will provide an understanding of: n the importance of knowledge of the anatomy of the muscles when providing botulinum toxin injections; n the importance of the consultation process to ensure that patients are sufficiently informed about the treatment choices and are appropriate patients to receive treatment; n identifying contraindications for botulinum toxin treatment; n identifying the various injection techniques; n identifying the risks of providing botulinum toxin treatment; n the importance of continually updating your knowledge and skills; and, n the importance of receiving appropriate training.
Getting started in digital dentistry Drs Maurice Fitzgerald and Alastair Woods Without doubt the future of all dental practice lies with digital technologies. This half-day course aims to give a detailed overview to the participant of the current landscape and the future of dental digital technologies. Emphasis will be placed on: n practical integration into dental practice; n the benefits and limitations of the technologies; n economic pros and cons; n hands-on time with intra-oral scanners and 3D printers; and, n hands-on time with the associated software packages. The course is designed to leave the participant more confident in making the switch to digital dentistry, and more assured of making the correct investment in these exciting and disruptive technologies.

DR DANIEL FLYNN Specialist Endodontist, Private Practice, London Endodontic microsurgery: the ultimate tooth- saving treatment Endodontic microsurgery fits in with the narrative of minimally invasive dentistry and broad thinking in our treatment planning. It has become increasingly clear that it is preferable to retain a natural tooth rather than elect for its removal and replacement, so long as the tooth is restorable and periodontally viable. With already excellent success rates for our conventional root canal treatment, having endodontic microsurgery as a back-up option gives the general dentist huge confidence in the ability to achieve endodontic success.
DR MARTIN FOSTER Irish Lead, Dental Protection Avoiding complications of another type As every clinician understands, the key to achieving the best outcome is careful assessment to ensure an understanding of a situation and identify where the potential problems may come from so these risks can be managed effectively.The same principles apply with respect to managing dentolegal risk. This presentation will highlight some of the more common issues faced by the dental team and provide practical tips on how to prevent recognised dentolegal complications causing problems.
DR BRIAN FRANKS Programme Clinical Director and Senior Lecturer, City of London Dental School Introduction to non-surgical facial aesthetics: why, who, where, how, when, when not and the JOY!

PROFESSOR PHILP MARSH The oral microbiome in health and disease – an ecological perspective THOMAS McCAFFREY Dento Legal Advisor, Dental Protection Dental records This presentation will provide an overview and update of record keeping and describe the importance of good records within risk management for the whole dental team.
DR NIAMH O’SULLIVAN Professor Emerita of Visual Culture (National College of Art and Design, Ireland) and founding Curator of Ireland’s Great Hunger Museum, Quinnipiac University, Connecticut Representing the unrepresentable Over a million died during the Great Hunger. Before and during, over 2.5 million emigrated. The pall of death and emigration, poverty and destitution, erosions of language and culture, and survivors’ guilt, meant that the burden of representation passed from generation to generation. The impossibility of giving voice to those who experienced the Famine, the paucity of material traces, and the scarcity of contemporary images, create challenges and opportunities that, arguably, artists are uniquely equipped to meet.
18 DR PAUL QUINLAN Practice Limited to Periodontics, Dublin How to predictably restore and replace teeth As dentists we are often faced with a dilemma as to what to do when a patient presents with single or multiple severely broken down teeth. Should these teeth be retained or replaced? Dental implants seem to provide an ideal alternative; however, they are not without their problems.The purpose of this presentation is to help the dentist to decide which approach to take and provide periodontal and prosthodontic strategies to increase the likelihood of long-term success.
DR JANE RENEHAN Quality & Patient Safety Committee, IDA Infection prevention and control – four things you must do During this lecture, Jane will focus on the four infection prevention and control risk factors in dentistry, as identified by HIQA.
She will give practical ‘how to’ guidance for dental nurses, practice managers and dental team members to assist them in supporting infection control compliance in the dental surgery. Lecture objectives: n awareness of HIQA's four dental risk management factors; n identifying essential dos and don'ts to meet infection control standards; and, n recognising the core compliance elements of a dental practice infection control strategy. DR SEAMUS ROGERS Oral Surgeon, Dublin Take the tooth, not the bone: avoiding complications in oral surgery A non-surgical extraction is often referred to as a ‘simple’ extraction but in many cases the non- surgical approach can lead to more problems postoperatively.
Seamus will discuss the pre- operative assessment of his patients and the reasons why a clinician would ‘skip’ the non- surgical approach to an extraction in favour of the flapless sectioning of the tooth or the conventional surgical removal of the tooth. Seamus will demonstrate how to predictably section and remove a multirooted tooth, and why this is so beneficial to both clinician and patient. DR SEAMUS SHARKEY Practice Limited to Prosthodontics, Cork Preparation design – today’s relevance! This presentation will cover the classic and current trends in preparation design for fixed prosthodontics.
From classic textbook preparations to more recent innovations, we will look at what factors are still as relevant today as they were 50 years ago. Also, what have modern materials allowed us to refine/change in the everyday crown preparation protocols and designs? These and other related questions will be answered with the emphasis on clinically relevant information for the practitioner. Learning objectives will include: understanding the principles of preparation design and their use in everyday practice; and, knowing how these designs affect the biological and technological limits of fixed prosthodontics.
