BASCD Autumn Scientific Meeting 2022 announced for 10th November


  Posted by: The Probe      5th August 2022

The British Association for the Study of Community Dentistry (BASCD) has organised an Autumn Scientific Meeting in London on 10 November 2022. The conference theme is ‘A Place to Call Home: Rescue or Repair’. It continues the topic of Inclusion Oral Health which was highlighted during the Summer Scientific Meeting in Glasgow in June 2022. The meeting will look at the response in providing dental care to two vulnerable groups in our society. The morning session will be on asylum seekers and refugees, while the afternoon session will focus on looked-after children.

After the lunch break, there will be an update on the revised BASCD position statement on recommended actions to reduce the consumption of free sugars and improve oral health. This is timely as the Sugar Awareness Week 2022 will take place soon after the Autumn Scientific Meeting.

During the conference, there will be a BASCD-Borrow Foundation Early Career Award competition. The poster award is sponsored by BASCD and the Borrow Foundation who are actively engaged in promoting oral health and disease prevention. Closing date for abstracts submission is 5 pm on Friday 2 September 2022.

In addition to posters display, there is also an exhibition showcasing the work of Dentaid in the UK and overseas. There will be a collection for donation to this charity.
