It is important for any professional working with children to understand the importance of early intervention and the warning signs of deteriorating dental health. Spotted too late and it could have a detrimental effect on a young person’s future.

The RCPCH has partnered with the Office of the Chief Dental Officer and the British Society for Paediatric Dentistry to explore exactly this issue and discuss effective approaches to helping to encourage positive oral health. 

The aim of this conference is to bring together a multi-disciplinary audience to inform and educate all on current facts, figures and issues concerning children’s oral health, and the roles of all of us in ensuring the continued improvement of outcomes. 

All child professionals are encouraged to attend this one day, CPD accredited conference which plays host to leading keynote speakers (listed below) as well as wide-ranging sessions.
