Developing dentistry in spotlight.
The annual one-day conference, the third to be hosted by The Welsh Rural Postgraduate Unit (WRPU)at Gregynog,near Newtown,is set to attract members of the dental profession from all over Wales and rural England.
High profile speakers at the popular event include Professor Aubrey Sheiham from the Department of Epidemiology and Public Health at University College London Medical School,Hugh Bennett,Senior Dental Officer for Wales,Pamela Swain from the British Association of Dental Nurses and Professor Damien Walmsley from the School of Dentistry at University of Birmingham Dental School.
Professor Sheiham will talk about dental public health -getting it right for future generations. Mr Bennett and Ms Swain will consider the future of dentistry and dental nursing in Wales respectively and Professor Walmsley will cast an eye to the future with the use of the Internet to access postgraduate training and development.
The WRPU,a partnership initiative between the Institute of Rural Health (IRH)and the University of Wales College of Medicine, is working hard to tackle feelings of professional isolation and lack of accessible postgraduate training for rural areas.
``This conference has now become firmly established in the calendars of dentists throughout Wales,'' saidDr Charles Vaughan Jones,post graduate tutor for rural Wales.
