Professor Laurie Walsh Caries Prevention Update 2019

This lecture provides a “booster injection” on the most modern concepts of caries prevention and how they are applied at the individual level.

The first part of the lecture explores the keystone pathogen and ecological catastrophe concepts and how they apply to dental caries, then examines modern ways to protect teeth, alter the oral microflora, and use prebiotic approaches. The second part of the lecture looks at assessing caries risk and tracking it over time in the individual patient, and explores the way that caries prevention strategies alter when moving from enamel to roots as the site which is at risk.

Professor Laurence J. Walsh AO is a specialist in special needs dentistry based at UQ in Brisbane. He has had a career-long interest in the management of high caries risk patients, and has published extensively and lectured globally on cariology.

Professor Walsh has authored over 300 journal publications and his published work has attracted over 12,00 citations in the literature. He is recognised internationally as one of the founders of the minimal intervention dentistry approach, and his saliva and plaque diagnostic tests (sold by GC) are in worldwide use for caries risk assessment.
