Wearabouts – the how, what, wear and why of managing tooth wear in general dental practice

The CGDent Scotland Study Day 2023 featured Professor Shamir Mehta FCGDent and Subir Banerji FCGDent, both Directors of the MSc in Aesthetic Dentistry at King’s College London, who presented the current evidence on toothwear, provided a guide to managing tooth wear in general dental practice, and illustrate the clinical techniques applied in the rehabilitation of the worn dentition.

Professor Jason Leitch CBE FCGDent delivered the annual Caldwell Memorial Lecture on Recovering from a Pandemic: NHS Scotland’s legacy post-COVID.

Shamir Mehta is a Professor and Course Lead for the MSc in Restorative Dentistry at the College of Medicine and Dentistry and Ulster University, Senior Clinical Teacher and Director of the MSc in Aesthetic Dentistry at King’s College London, and Visiting Professor and PhD supervisor at Radboud University, where he is part of the Radboud Tooth Wear Project.

Subir Banerji is the Programme Director of the MSc in Aesthetic Dentistry, and PhD supervisor, at King’s College London, co-author of books including Practical Procedures in the Management of Tooth Wear and Practical Procedures in Aesthetic Dentistry, and a general dental practitioner in private practice in Ealing.

Professor Mehta and Dr Banerji are also Guest Editors for two issues of the College’s Primary Dental Journal on the theme of Aesthetic Dentistry. Part One was recently distributed to College members, and Part Two will be published in September 2023.

Jason Leitch is the National Clinical Director for Scotland, and became a popular and well-known figure to broadcast media audiences throughout the UK for the clarity of his communication during the COVID-19 pandemic. A graduate of Glasgow Dental School, he holds a Master’s in Public Health from Harvard and a PhD from the University of Glasgow, and is a CGDent Ambassador.
