Program overview

The conference offers a rich program, covering diverse topics within paediatric dentistry. Here’s a glance at some of the speakers and their topics from our program.

Norbert Kraemer

Keynote Speaker

Professor Kraemer will bring his clinical, scientific and academic experience to peer into the crystal ball. He will describe a future in which we’ll see technology – such as 3D imaging and artificial intelligence – change our field forever.

Marie Cornelis

Early treatment in orthodontics: interception or overdoing?

Professor Cornelis will address the common and challenging questions that we, as paediatric dentists, often have to address. When it comes to early and mixed dentition intervention: are we intercepting – or over treating?

Alastair Sloan

The regeneration game: Next generation bio-applications for oral health

Professor Sloan will inspire and challenge us to imagine a very different future. On where novel tissue engineering and regenerative technologies open the door to a new world of opportunity to us as dentists.

Michelle Telfer

Trans Healthcare in Australia: How do we best support trans children and young people?

A/Professor Telfer has been instrumental in establishing a world-leading trans-specific health service for children and adolescents. She will share her experiences and insights with us as paediatric clinicians so that we can better understand the evolving needs of our patients and their families.

Bal Kaur

General Anaesthesia: Is DGA the panacea we want it to be?

In this session Dr Kaur looks at the true risks and impacts to the neurodevelopment of a child when general anaesthesia is used in paediatric dentistry. She also explores alternatives to this form of sedation. And delves into the ANZCA PS09 changes and what it means for us as paediatric dentists.
