The Irish Society for Disability and Oral Health were proud to present the second of last season’s ISDH Winter Webinars series. This Webinar was delivered by experts with a unique perspective on this topic. Meera Shah is a dentist with a background in special care dentistry and offers a rare insight from a dentist living with incurable cancer. Meera is joined by her colleague Elizabeth Gonzales Malaga, STR in Special Care Dentistry at Northamptonshire Healthcare Foundation Trust, and a Clinical Fellow for East Midlands NHS Foundation Trust.
After the webinar, participants were able to:
- understand the lived experience of cancer diagnosis from a dental perspective;
- apply tips and tricks to make life easier for patients diagnosed with cancer; and,
- understand the impact of osteoradionecrosis (ORN) and how it can be prevented.
