New flash & advert for the next 2 BSOS in courses in 2018 by Jette Holbrook
BIRMINGHAM APRIL 20th: DR JOSÉ de la HÓZ
YORK JUNE 8TH: PROF PAUL DURHAM
Dear BSOS member,
Please without a moments hesitation enshrine the above dates about in your postgraduate diary and book on-line at bsos.org.uk to attend
I heard both these lecturers last year in Chicago and was utterly captivated by their presentations: Not only do they have enormous knowledge and insight into our field but both have provided a paradigm shift in how I now view the importance of our work as dentists, our ability to help our patients but also for ourselves: on-going health.
Dr Jose de la Hoz works as TMD specialist and oral surgeon in Madrid.
I think he will provide us with greater depth of knowledge to provide better care. For me it is always what I don’t know or understand that causes me care to falter or worse land me in hot waters as a clinician!
Jose will cover 4 different areas including updating us on
– How exactly do we now view pain and its pathway? What happens in the brain?
– What happens when the system ‘overheats’ and everything hurts?
– What is it if it is not tooth ache or TMD?
– The latest on oral appliances
Prof Paul Durham is a professor of cell biology and epigenetics.
He has a special interest in temporomandibular dysfunction and migraine.
Epigenetics is the study of changes in organisms caused by modification of gene expression rather than alteration of the genetic code itself.
That means we can actively influence the genetic hand we were all dealt.
Paul will talk about how the way we live impact our health and potentially the health of our children 2 generations down the line, how pain in one area of our bodies sets us up to be more likely to get further problems, why treating TMD can aid migraine sufferers and why chicken soup is indeed good for our health.
He describes the pain fatigue cycle and how stress, muscle tension, poor sleep, depression and emotions can cause us/our patients to be caught up in this.
He illuminates areas as wide as genomes, nicotine, vaginal births, antibiotics and gut bacteria.
Please do join us not only to support BSOS but also for 2 fascinating talks you will never regret attending.
