Philips sponsors The Oral Health Promotion Incubator roundtable and three lectures at the BDIA Virtual Showcase
On Tuesday 23rd March, hygienist and founder of The Smile Revolution, Victoria Wilson (top) will, sponsored by Philips, host a roundtable debate during the BDIA Virtual Showcase. The debate will highlight the scope of an Oral Health Promotion Incubator, aiming to: “Stimulate a conversation about developing opportunities in oral health promotion, push delegates to think creatively and explore new and untapped scope within their roles as dental professionals.”
This roundtable discussion is designed for 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. Victoria will focus on the current situation in oral health promotion and engage with participants to explore opportunities to help overcome their existing challenges.
She explains: “I have observed many positive changes in the people who participate in the Smile Revolution courses. The initiatives they develop have the scope to bring about real change, as well as enhancing their careers and the future of their teams.
“My key message 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 delegate 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 as part of its ongoing support for dental professionals.
Philips states its intention to: “Help drive leadership in dentistry through innovation in oral health promotion.” It is also encourages delegates to register quickly as the session can only accept a maximum of 30 places.
Philips will also be hosting three lectures during the BDIA Virtual Showcase. Delegates are invited to join Dr Alif Moosajee on Tuesday 23rd March as he explores the ideal traits for a good dentist and business owner. Dental Hygienist and serial oral health entrepreneur Megan Fairhall will be lecturing on Wednesday 24th, exploring the theme of health and wellness as a precursor to the launch of her first podcast series on the subject, also sponsored by Philips.
On 26th March Melanie Pomphrett will be speaking about the ‘Zoom Boom’, explaining how the whole dental team can optimise tooth whitening in practice using Philips' Zoom Whitening systems.
