The BES Regional Meeting will, this year, be a three day conference, adding to its programme, the postponed Spring Scientific Meeting. The Meeting will take place at the Crowne Plaza Hotel, Stratford-upon-Avon. The Meeting will consist of an exciting scientific programme, a poster display on the Thursday, an exhibition, and a Dinner on the Friday night with a live band. Dress Code: Formal or Black Tie Delegates will have the option of registering for the Thursday only; the Friday and Saturday; or all three days. Please note, the Early Registration Rate will end 23.59 hrs on Wednesday 6th October. Prices will increase by £50 after this date. Unfortunately the hotel is now full for bedroom bookings but there are alternative hotels nearby. The BES is also taking this opportunity to launch its 'Early Careers Group'
British Endodontic Society
Speaker: Professor Shanon Patel
BDS, MSc, MClinDent, MRD, PhD, FDS, FHEA
Shanon divides his time between specialist practice and at teaching at King’s College London Dental Institute.
His main research interests are CBCT, root resorption and the restoration of root treated teeth. He has supervised 50+ Masters and PhD students.
Shanon’s background as a clinical academic has resulted in him publishing over 100 papers. He is the lead author of 3 European Society of Endodontology position statements (CBCT 2014, 2019 and External Cervical Resorption 2018).
Shanon has been invited as a keynote or plenary speaker at over 80 lectures in international meetings spanning 5 continents. He is recognized internationally as a leading authority on 3D (CBCT) imaging and root resorption.
Shanon has co-authored 4 textbooks which have been translated into 5 different languages, ‘Principle of Endodontics’ is considered essential reading for undergraduates in the UK, ‘Pitt Ford’s Problem Based Learning in Endodontics’ was the first PBL book published in Endodontics, and ‘CBCT in Endodontics’ is considered essential reading for Endodontists using CBCT. Most recently ‘Endodontology at a Glance’ is the first authoritative revision guide in Endodontology.
‘To (re-)root treat or not to treat’
With all the paraphernalia available to clinicians, (re-) root canal treatment has become more predictable ….but does it improve clinical outcomes?
The aim of this presentation is to look at the bigger picture….keeping teeth going for as long as practicaly possible. This can only be done by appropriate case selection, a conservative approach to treatment and most importantly looking at the bigger picture. Cutting edge clinical research from the KCL Endo unit will be presented to show how we can improve outcomes in a relatively simple way.
‘Out, damned (pink) spot!’ (External Cervical Resorption)
The incidence of external cervical resorption (ECR) appears to be increasing over the last 2 decades this is in part due to increased detection with CBCT as well as interesting and eye catching histological analysis.
The aim of this presentation is to review the symptoms, signs and management strategies of ECR.
