Joint Paediatric-Orthodontic Course: A Team Approach to Children's Dental Care

Within the dental environment, both paediatric and orthodontic colleagues often refer patients to each other and provide care for the same patient.

The course will be of interest to all paediatric and orthodontic colleagues and will focus on the key overlap between the specialities and how they can work together to provide the best evidence-based approach.
