In fact, it may lead to some people avoiding dental care completely until excruciating pain gives them no choice. Dentists should be able to provide alternatives to control a patient's anxiety and to assist them to receive treatment. This course will cover a spectrum of anxiety relieving alternatives. It will give the caring dentist a selection of anxiolytic techniques that can be o ered to their patients including psychosedation, oral sedation and inhalation sedation. All participants will have the opportunity to administer and experience the full range of e ects of relative analgesia using nitrous oxide-oxygen, and, after completing the course, will feel confident in setting up and administering this agent. A review of Basic and Advanced Life support will be undertaken and electromechanical monitoring options will be discussed. Topics include • Application of psychosedation techniques • Review of Basic Life Support • Review of relevant anatomy • Pharmacology of oral and inhalational anxiolytic agents • Equipment requirements • In-surgery advice: sterilisation, scavenging and safety • Administration and monitoring • Concerns and contraindications • Managing complications IMPORTANT NOTE During the practical session, participants will work in groups and learn both slow and fast nitrous oxide-oxygen induction techniques. It is essential that all participants wishing to perform any procedure on a colleague in a learning environment are registered dental professionals in Australia. About the presenter Dr Steven Parker refer to page 26 for details. The Basics of Clinical Photography An introductory course for beginners Presented by Dr Peter Sheridan Clinical photography is not just about beautiful white teeth or cosmetic artistry. With today's digital technology every dentist can chronicle what they see in the mouth, whether for general records or whenever the situation warrants photographic documentation. X-rays do not show failing restorations, crack lines and wear patterns; notes cannot always clearly indicate the sequence of events in a clinical session; study models poorly represent the restored nature of teeth and the health of soft tissues. The routine use of digital photography can significantly enhance record-taking, validate clinical decisions and provide an impressive tool for patient education and practice marketing. Attendees will see reviews of all types of cameras and the armamentarium required to take extra and intra-oral pictures. Using the most modern cameras, attendees will learn how to take outstanding clinical photographs and how to store and display them. People easily comprehend visual data and this course will show how instant quality images can dramatically improve patient understanding and acceptance of treatment recommendations. This course will be an invaluable experience for general dentists and specialists and will be useful for general photography as well.
