BITE CLUBS

Dental study clubs, I like to call them Bite Clubs, provide a unique form of CPD – masticatory learning. Enjoying a meal next to another dentist personifies the art of our profession without the filter of a liquid crystal display. It doesn’t matter where you graduated, or how long you have been practicing, every dentist has something to pass onto a colleague and Bite Clubs are an amazing way to foster these relationships. Who you know in dentistry is important and many of these dentists can be found in Bite Clubs.

UNDERSTANDING

I understand the pressures of dental practice and the lure of easy education; the watch and absorb method of knowledge transfer that comes with virtual education. Unfortunately, this one-way learning lacks the depth of analysis that comes with robust discussion and personal feedback. The professional knowledge of peers kindles our understanding and informs our clinical decisions. Are these decisions based on solid and contemporary foundations? Will they stand up? Are they the best decisions for our patients? Bite Clubs are a wonderful source of good information, they are the luting agents that support our profession with rooms full of expertise, conversation, and goodwill. A live presentation delivered at a Bite Club meeting is good for us and it tastes good too.

SUPPORT

Dentistry is complex and difficult and we need the support of other dentists. Regardless of what we think we know, the practicalities of patient responsibility require our diligence, understanding, and empathy. Experienced clinicians understand the importance of growth – reliable sources of information, delivering knowledge, fostering understanding, and enhancing clinical expertise. Discover dental education in its natural environment – organic, free-range, stimulating CPD.

I encourage you to partake in masticatory learning – join a Bite Club.

BITE CLUB DIRECTORY 2024

This edition shares information about the specialty societies relating to periodontics, paediatric dentistry, prosthodontics and endodontics as well as the Australasian Osseointegration Society.

The many benefits of joining a Bite Club were wonderfully described by Dr Mark Gervais in the foreword.

For those who have always wanted to join a society but found the process difficult to navigate, I hope the information in this directory makes it easier for you.

For those who are considering the value of joining in, I encourage you to see what the societies can offer you and to also read what dentists, just like you, have said in the hear from members section.

For those who are already members of one or more of the groups, I encourage to share this directory with your friends.

ADAQ Vision: We believe all Queenslanders deserve excellent oral health and access to ethical and effective dental care driven by clinical excellence”

AUSTRALIAN SOCIETY OF PERIODONTOLOGY

ASP QUEENSLAND

ASP members consist of general dentists, specialist periodontists and dental hygienists, as well as enrolled students in all these professional groups. ASP has State Branches in NSW, Victoria, Queensland, South Australia, Western Australia and Tasmania.

WHY WAS THE AUSTRALIAN SOCIETY OF PERIODONTOLOGY (ASP) FORMED?

The Australian Society of Periodontology (ASP) is a non-profit professional society aiming to promote scientific advancements and clinical knowledge in periodontology. Formed in 1961, ASP welcomes members who are general dentists, periodontists and specialists of other disciplines, dental hygienists and oral health therapists, as well as dental students who have an interest in periodontics.

WHAT IS ASP'S MISSION?

9 Statement 1: To support the scientific and clinical research in periodontology and periodontics.

9 Statement 2: To advance and promote the science and scientific understanding of periodontology.

9 Statement 3: To encourage and support evidence-based clinical practice of periodontics.

9 Statement 4: To promote and facilitate the dissemination of information related to the best clinical practice of periodontics.

The ASP has a federal branch committee, and affiliated state branches run by state committees in New South Wales, Victoria, Queensland, South Australia, Western Australia and Tasmania. Each state has an ASP Councillor or state representative to attend federal meetings which are run a few times a year. The Queensland ASP branch is colloquially known as “ASPQ”.

WHAT TOPICS DID ASPQ COVER IN 2023?

In 2023 the ASPQ Committee had a year-long theme for the dinner meeting presentations:

“Periodontics and its place in the multi-disciplinary team”. The first meeting in March invited prosthodontist, Dr Sid Kothari to speak about how his discipline overlapped with periodontics. In May Dr Faye Goodyear orthodontist gave a presentation about orthoperio cases.

In July, Dr Unni Krishnan endodontist gave a presentation on the science behind cracked teeth. In October, ASPQ held its annual GJ Seymour and MP Cullinan Research Medallion competition. This gives an opportunity for periodontics post-graduate students and post-doc students from QLD universities to present a 10-minute lecture on their original research that is related to periodontics. The winner is awarded $500 cash prize funded by ASPQ.

The Clinic Day in November welcomed keynote speaker Professor Axel Spahr from University of Sydney to discuss the ITI updates on periodontal regeneration and peri-implant disease treatments. Two other speakers, prosthodontist Dr Stephen Robinson and Dr Jaya Seneviratne presented lectures on complications in implant therapy, and a microbiology update on periodontitis and periimplant diseases respectively.

WHAT ARE THE 2024 PLANS FOR ASP?

The ASP has a Federal branch that organises and hosts the biennial scientific conference in a capital city of Australia. The last ASP conference was in conjunction held with the Australasian Osseointegration Society (AOS) in August 2022, hosted in Sydney. The next ASP conference will be hosted in Brisbane, 2024 and its organising committee will be working on the scientific program and conference organisation throughout 2023.

The ASP State Branch societies hold regular scientific meetings amongst its members and guests. ASPQ plans to hold its first meeting in the new year, dates to be annoucned.The remaining 2024 lecture topics will be announced at the February 2024 meeting.

8 AUSTRALIAN DENTAL ASSOCATION QUEENSLAND

HOW DOES ASP HELP ITS MEMBERS?

The ASP Federal branch publishes a scientific journal twice a year and pledges support for scientific research through the Australian Periodontology Research Foundation (APRF), and an undergraduate research scholarship scheme.

ASP Federal also informs and consults with the Australian Dental Association, particularly regarding issues that directly affect any clinician using ADA treatment codes pertaining to periodontics. For example, prior to the 2017 publication of the Australian Schedule of Dental Services and Glossary, the ADA sought the opinions of ASP members from all branches regarding the treatment descriptions pertaining to the new periodontal treatment codes being introduced, namely the 250 and 251 codes. This was an important step forwards in bringing the importance of periodontal maintenance to the attention of health insurance companies.

The ASPQ sponsors the annual GJ Seymour and MP Cullinan Research Medallion competition to support young researchers in the field of periodontics. The ASPQ also promotes interest in periodontics in QLD and encourages clinicians to engage with the society early on in their careers – as early as their undergraduate studies!

HOW WOULD SOMEONE GET IN TOUCH WITH ASP?

Contact the ASPQ via email: aspqld@gmail.com. If you wish to contact the Federal ASP committee, you can do so by emailing the Federal Secretariat: contact@asp.asn.au

HEAR FROM MEMBERS OF SPECIALTY SOCIETIES

DR DINUSHA THALAGA, ASPQ MEMBER

“A general dentist should join ASPQ if they are continuing to screen their patients for periodontal and peri-implant disease as part of their general dental treatments, have an interest in treating periodontitis patients in their practice, want to learn more about periodontal treatments and implant therapies, mingle and meet with other clinicians who have an interest in periodontics and build relationships with referring periodontists and other specialists.”

DR ANDY TSAI, QLD ASE MEMBER

“I have been a member of the Australian Society of Endodontology (ASE) for the past 6 years and it has been a great source for continuing education, forming new professional relationships and is a great platform for social interactions with your colleagues.

The ASE committee work extremely hard every year to organise both local and international speakers to discuss topics that are highly relevant to general dental practitioners. Not only do you get to hear from experts from around Australia and the rest of the world, but you also get to meet face-to-face with the specialist colleagues who you refer to.

I feel being a member of ASE not only kept me interested in endodontic, but also helped me form valuable relationships with like-minded colleagues.”
