BACD 15th Annual Conference: “The Functional Smile: Start With Why...”

Organisers say: “The British Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry’s (BACD) fifteenth Annual Conference is already shaping up to be one of the most exciting events of the dental calendar. The Annual Conference in November promises to be as exciting as ever, with a line-up of exceptional speakers who are sure to inspire delegates.”

The focus of this year’s event will be on ‘The Functional Smile: Start With Why…’, which will explore new insights into the ways cosmetic dentistry can restore a beautiful, functional smile. Keynote speaker, Dr John Kois, will be leading the session by exploring the importance of occlusion in predicting more successful restorative results in practice.

The BACD’s dedicated hands-on sessions will provide delegates with an opportunity to gain experience using the latest techniques and materials, including sessions on implant placement and restoration, the Kois occlusal deprogrammer, fabrication of resin bonded bridges, digital smile design, and anterior composites diastema closure.

Each topic will be presented by leaders in their respective fields, who promise to bring a wealth of experience and illuminating insight to the podium.

The speakers confirmed to present alongside Dr Kois include:

• Dr Ken Harris
• Dr Komal Suri
• Dr Elaine Halley
• Dr Ulf Krueger-Janson
• Dr Joe Bhat
• Dr Joana Garcez
• Dr Linda Greenwall
• Dr Florin Lăzărescu
• Dr Jamal Gardee
• Dr Louis Mackenzie

A spokesperson said: “The BACD has already set the bar high with its diverse and highly-accomplished line-up; but be sure to watch this space because we will continue to announce more speakers throughout the year.

“By providing a packed, three-day programme of workshops and lectures, the conference is bound to intrigue and inspire every delegate.

“Whether you are a dental student on the first steps of your career ladder, a dental professional seeking to broaden your knowledge, or a skilled technician hoping to improve your skillset, the Annual Conference will provide you with the latest technical information and guidance to help enhance your day and refine your outcomes.

“The BACD Annual Conference is also one of the year’s best opportunities for meeting and networking with like-minded dental professionals. Offering an opportunity to discuss and share ideas, the conference is as much a social event as an educational one – the exclusive BACD Gala Dinner on Friday night always proves to be a great way for delegates to catch up with colleagues or make new friends.

“And the icing on the cake will be the sensational trade show exhibition, which will provide a superb opportunity for you to explore some of the most innovative dental products and materials on the market today. Can you afford to miss it?”
