What’s behind a smile? The role of Oral Health in Domestic Violence Prevention.

About this event

Join us for brunch as we celebrate World Oral Health Day.
Our topic for the day is focused on how to identify and support victims of domestic violence in our clinics. We will also discuss what our role as a health practitioner is when faced with these scenarios and look at how can we help victims reach out to the correct services.
This is an important topic that is suitable for the entire dental team.
