“Recent advances in growth modification and clear aligner therapy”

Clear aligner therapy has gained popularity while its treatment effectiveness improved over the years. Recent advancements in clear
aligner growth modification therapy signify a significant development and offer patients more treatment options.

High level and sound scientific evidence on effectiveness of growth
modification and two phase treatment over one phase orthodontic
treatment exists in orthodontic literature. However, recent development of incremental mandibular advancement will necessitate further study of the effectiveness of two-phase treatment. The objectives of this lecture are to review indications and treatment options for growth modification and to discuss new developments in delivery or clinical care.

“Cultural Safety in Dentistry”

Cultural safety is a concept that was coined by Aboriginal nurses in New Zealand that
addresses the power imbalance in medical environments that perpetuate Indigenous health inequity. This includes the dental environment.

To make Cultural Safety clear to the audience, I will discuss Cultural Safety through the necessary stages and various terms, health equality vs health inequity, and the various forms of racism and reconciliation. I will also mention the social determinants of Indigenous peoples’ health to establish that the impact social, political and historical contexts have on Indigenous health.
