“Dentistry and healthcare in general are changing,” says Mick Horton, Dean of the FGDP(UK). “We can no longer view areas of the body in isolation; what we do as professionals can impact on the rest of the body, and vice-versa. This holistic approach to treatment brings together modern techniques and their relationship with general disease.”
"We aim to look at ways of delivering extended oral health care across all ages. We invite you to join us in this journey."
Look out for the Holistic Patient Care Assessment themed edition of the Faculty's journal due out in August 2017.
In partnership with Simplyhealth Professionals, the Faculty will be hosting a unique conference Holistic Dentistry – Putting the Mouth Back into the Body on Friday 3rd November featuring a keynote address by Professor Iain Chapple as well as presentations from leading names in the industry.
