Professor Ian Meyers will join us via video link at the ADA NSW Centre for Professional Development for this virtual presentation from his dental studio in Brisbane. Although virtual, the sessions will be fully interactive. You’ll still have the opportunity to directly discuss the topic with Professor Meyers, watch demonstrations live, and receive immediate feedback on the hands-on simulation exercises you’ll carry out.

Reduced pricing for 23 October.

This virtual presentation will only apply for the 23 October 2020 date.


It is acknowledged that our population is ageing and keeping their natural teeth longer, and along with this there is an increasing expectation by patients that they will retain their natural dentition into their senior years.

Unfortunately the presenting dentition and oral environment in some older adults is frequently sub-optimal. Consequently a range of adaptable oral health management strategies are required to help address the various dental demands and clinical situations.

Individualised restorative management protocols that provide pragmatic outcomes and take into consideration the persons abilities and tolerance, and may need to be less invasive and less costly, are frequently required. This presentation will focus on the preservation and restoration of tooth structure and how in general dental practice we can assist our patients to retain, and where necessary, restore their teeth to ensure an ongoing healthy, functional and aesthetic dentition.

A range of traditional, and not so traditional, approaches to restorative management of the ageing dentition will be presented and discussed, and will demonstrate that contrary to popular belief, minimally invasive conservative restorative management can demonstrate good aesthetic and functional longevity.

The ultimate goal is to optimise oral and dental health, and thereby enhance overall general health, and enable the elderly to enjoy living a healthy, happy, dignifi ed and active independent life while ensuring long-term sustainability of the dentition.

Topics include

  • Patient examination, assessment and treatment planning strategies

  • Compromised teeth, when to retain, when to restore, when to extract

  • Appropriate selection and use of restorative materials

  • Managing and maintaining compromised dentitions

  • Hands-on simulation exercises

Learning Objectives

  • Innovative use of adhesive restorative materials

  • Extended use of glass-ionomer cements

  • Fibre reinforced restorations and bridges

  • Therapeutic enhancement of restorations and prostheses

  • The heroic rescue of the doomed dentition.
