New look, fresh perspective
Welcome to the first edition of the new-look Ireland’s Dental magazine.
You’ll see we’ve made some radical improvements! Yes, it’s smaller in size, but we’ve added many more pages, allowing us to develop the content you need.
We’ve taken soundings across the profession and responded with more news, features and clinical articles than ever before.
We are also taking very seriously the comment that Ireland’s Dental must have its own “voice”, commenting on the issues facing dentists north and south of the border today.
So, it’s more than a decade since the Scots realised they had a major problem with the oral health of their children. The statistics then were frightening. However, under the leadership of Professor Lorna Macpherson, the Childsmile programme has dramatically improved the situation.
Now, Prof Macpherson is offering to support Ireland’s dental community – authorities and practitioners – with the huge task of tackling their own massive problems.
What Prof Macpherson has to offer should be grasped with both hands, and quickly, for the sake of Ireland’s children.
