8 AUGUST 2011 latest news THIS MOnTH In THE dEnTAL fILES dEnTAL fILES COMPETITIOn wHAT COULdn’T yOU LIvE wITHOUT? And THE wInnERS ARE... AdJ RAnkInG And IMPACT fACTOR On THE RISE AwARdS Of ExCELLEnCE fOR PAPERS PUbLISHEd In THE AUSTRALIAn dEnTAL JOURnAL The August edition of the Dental Files (Program 4, 2011) features speakers from the ADA’s most recent Congress in Brisbane. Some of the interviews on the program include: • Professor Lyndon Cooper who presented on ‘The Three Unit Fixed Bridge’. Even though it was held in the largest theatre, there were scores of people who couldn’t fit into the hall for this lecture. He kindly did a repeat performance of the presentation to meet the demand. The Dental Files explores why this was such a hot topic. • Professor Ken Hargreaves was another standout presenter from the Brisbane Congress. He is currently Professor and Chair of Endodontics, and Professor of Pharmacology and Physiology at the University of Texas, San Antonio. In this interview Ken talks about dental pain emergencies, including one of the most difficult challenges – how to anaesthetise the ‘hot tooth’. • It is likely we will never know why trauma cases seem most likely to happen at 5 o’clock on a Friday afternoon but you can be prepared for that near inevitable occurrence. Angus Cameron is Associate Professor and Head of Paediatric Dentistry at Westmead Hospital and the University of Sydney. Angus provides his guide to managing these stressful episodes. In addition to the audio interviews on the disk you’ll also find a video that is part of Dental Health Week. This year, Dental Health Week is aiming to get members and their patients to look at oral cancer. The Association has produced a special video with Associate Professor Camile Farah of the University of Queensland. In the video, Camile shows examples of some of the clinical signs dentist need to look out for, and how practitioners can make an oral health exam a regular part of patient care. During the recent Brisbane Congress and via the web, Dental Files has been running a competition to find out what Australian dentists regard as the Top 5 Dental Advances They Couldn’t Live Without. The results are in and the winners are: First Prize: Dr John Packer of Queensland Second Prize: Dr Christopher Korvin of New South Wales Third Prize: Dr Trang Nguyen of Queensland The prizes for our winners are provided by Henry Schein Halas. We would like to thank them for their generous support and thank our members who participated in the contest. So what are the top advances members feel they couldn’t live without?
