Swords Orthodontics Top 10 of 2014: Five
Team Swords Ortho at Kilkenny for IDA conference
In late May, the clinical team at Swords Orthodontics (that’s Brenda, Michelle and Courtney) headed to Kilkenny’s Lyrath Estate for the Irish Dental Association’s 2014 National Conference. There were updates on all sorts of things to do with dentistry, but particularly from an Irish perspective – this is important for keeping up with changes in the laws and regulations governing dentistry. There were also special talks from the UK’s foremost forensic dentist (who has the gruesome job of identifying bodies from their dental records) and a man who had run 32 marathons in 32 days – one in each county. And from an Irish dental health perspective, there was a presentation from the lady who drove the changes to bring about the phenomenal GAA policy on mouth guards - one of the great dental health measures of our generation.
This year it’s in Cork and we all hope to be at it again.
