Peter Barnard FIRST INTERVIEW WITH DENTAL BOARD CHAIR FEATURED ON DENTAL FILES The Dental Files cover CD (Program 4, 2010) this month, features five audio interviews to keep you up-to-date with your profession, plus a bonus video track presented by the inaugural Chair, Dental Board of Australia, Dr John Lockwood. BONDING WITH THE DBA In this first public interview with Dental Board of Australia Chair, Dr John Lockwood, Patrick Meaney asks what's in it for him, what's new and what to expect for his $545 per annum. Dr Lockwood also presents an overview of the operation and philosophy of the Board in the bonus video found on the cover CD. DO YOU FEEL LUCKY? Sudden (or immediate) implants can offer great time-savings for patients and clinicians --- but what are the pitfalls? In this interview with Dr David Grossberg, Patrick Meaney finds out how long to wait for allografts, why canine sockets can trick you and how a jumping distance can make a difference. HOW LONG IS FOREVER, EXACTLY? Can you predict who will suffer relapse? Is there a magic appliance? Why should GPs look at OPGs in the mixed dentition? Ahead of his ortho-for-the-GP course later in the year, Dr Eric Lowenhaupt discusses relapse, extraction and retention with Paul Hagley. SANDWICH, ANYONE? Michael Mandikos continues his discussion on all things composite with Dr Didier Dietschi. Find out if a glass ionomer base under a resin overlay is a cultural technique that works only at the right latitude, and the when, where, how and why of flowables. MEDICARE AUSTRALIA Kathy Dennis is from the Compliance Division of Medicare Australia. David Sweeney asks what dentists have to do to ensure they are complying with the legislation in participating in the Chronic Diseases scheme, and explores the nature of a Medicare Audit of a dentist.
