The Senior Dental Leaders Programme (SDL-8) A strategic leadership programme for improving child oral health Sunday 9th – Friday 14th March 2014, London, UK


Background Global challenges demand global leaders. If we are to meet the challenges and identify the opportunities that the next decade will bring to global oral health then we will need leaders who are expert in the theory and practice of strategic leadership. Senior dental leaders need chances to critically reflect on their roles now and in the future. Only then can they fully realise their capacity to create change. Those in leadership positions or those who aspire to become effective dental public health leaders should not be left alone to tackle the many challenges – guidance and support are necessary for them to succeed and keep up the momentum. The programme is designed to bring together, in a global network, individuals who wish to engage at a local, federal or global level in bringing about lasting positive change. Successful leaders will be available to share their insights and all will have a chance to reflect on the demands of leadership. As Koh and Jacobson recently stated (J Public Health 2009, 31 (2) 199–201) “public health requires its leaders to stretch their minds and souls in almost unimaginable ways. Public health has only recently begun to explore the potential of formal leadership education and training.” The Global Child Dental Fund (GCDFund) (www.gcdfund.org) is a registered charity committed

to leading this initiative. The charity builds upon the King’s College London’s Global Child Dental Health Taskforce project established in 2006 and whose mission is supported by the World Health Organization. GCDFund along with Harvard School of Dental Medicine (HSDM) and King’s College London (KCL), recognises effective leadership in dentistry as being the key to achieving its overall mission of improving child dental health for all children, and especially for those underserved.

The Senior Dental Leaders programme in 2014 (SDL-8) will focus on developing the dental workforce. Following the popularity of the first seven years we are now seeking nominations for an eighth cohort of participants for the next programme taking place in March 2014. The 2014 programme will be held at Royal Horseguards Hotel and One Whitehall Place, London, UK.

In September 2011 the Senior Dental Leaders programme was voted the best International Collaboration programme at King’s College London. The programme was also shortlisted for the prestigious Times Higher Education Awards 2011 in the category of ‘Outstanding Contribution to Leadership Development’.

The programme strengthens each attendee’s ability to deal with crises, and anticipate and plan for future demands.

Programme aims and benefits The programme’s core aim is to equip senior leaders with the skills they need to drive forward action towards a cavity free world. The programme is aimed at key individuals who wish to develop strategic leadership and management skills to advance this agenda in their own countries and contexts. It is creating an international network of leaders that facilitates collaboration, exchanges of knowledge, and mutual support.

The programme works as a catalyst for sustainable change by equipping local leaders to solve the challenges faced by their own countries and regions. Individuals, countries, and the international dental community as a whole all benefit from the programme. Benefits to individuals • Provision of knowledge and resources which will enhance the participants high level leadership capabilities. • Access to the experience of senior level policy, health and higher education professionals with substantial experience of delivering strategic change. • The opportunity to build long lasting networks with colleagues facing similar challenges.

Benefits at a country level • If countries are to achieve the ambitious target of eliminating dental cavities in their child

population within a generation, then we will need major system changes in the way dental services are provided and funded. This programme will support the senior dental leaders who will be needed to deliver these changes. They will be called to work with a number of stakeholders and operate at a demanding pace. They will need to deploy excellent leadership and management skills to survive the ongoing pressures and challenges they will be faced with. This course will help them to do so by providing them with access to a strong evidence base and a global network, delivering leadership support, skills and techniques.

Benefits for the international dental community • Building the ability of strategic leaders to deal with the global challenges facing the dental world. • The development of a cadre of leaders will shape the future direction of oral health agendas on a national and international level, driving forward progressive agendas to eliminate preventable dental disease.

“As a representative of Thailand, I found SDL-7 to be a very instructive and rewarding experience. I look forward to using the knowledge I developed to benefit disadvantaged children in my country.” Associate Prof Thongnard Kumchai, Chiang Mai, Thailand Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery, Faculty of Dentistry

Who should attend? To be considered for participation in the programme, prospective candidates should:

To date the SDL programme has trained delegates from over 42 countries.

• Have experience and a proven track record of operating successfully in a senior policy or other leadership role

The professional and cultural diversity of previous cohorts has significantly enhanced the programme. It is intended that the next cohort will also be drawn from a wide range of backgrounds and cultures.

• Have the support of their Ministries of Health, Dental Association, Academic Institution or other employer Preference will be given to those who are already in or who are about to take up a senior leadership position.

The working language of all the sessions will be English, in which participants are expected to be proficient to at least TEFOL level 5. A pre-workshop questionnaire will be used to gather relevant background information about the participants.

At SDL-7, twenty senior dental leaders from around the world told contrasting stories of oral health issues and presented eye-opening statistics. But regardless of the different backgrounds, everyone shared the same goal: to improve access to oral healthcare for the world’s underserved children, and improve their well-being and happiness thereby.

On completion participants will have: • Honed their skill-sets for the most senior roles in dental policy making. • Gained insights into the global context for oral health and identified issues facing senior leaders in dentistry. • Examined the process of formulating and implementing strategies and used ‘scenario thinking’ to consider futures for oral health.
