Dr Christine May BDS(Hons) USyd BHSc(TCM) UTS Founder FaceWell Teledentistry

Teledentistry: your express link to professional dental advice, anywhere In this progressive and innovative lecture, Dr Christine May, Founder of FaceWell Teledentistry, will describe what teledentistry is, how it works, and discuss the advantages and challenges to providing remote dental care via this platform for both practitioners and patients. Case studies will be used to illustrate. Q and A will follow at the finish of the lecture.

After twenty years working in the dental industry across Australia, I've become an enthusiastic advocate for mouth-body wellbeing: improving health via knowledge of the links between oral health and total body wellness. I have extensive career experience in general, cosmetic, special needs, complex and HIV dental medicine, aged care, dental phobia management and rural and remote dentistry.

I also have qualifications in Chinese medicine and facial injectables. I've completed advanced courses in dental sleep medicine, orofacial myology, integrative nutrition, naturopathy, yoga and massage. I'm a health writer and have had articles published in the media. I've been a clinical educator at Sydney University and give lectures to the profession on integrative dental medicine topics. I'm based in Sydney. I enjoy fitness, food, house music, dancing, riding my vespa, and exploring new places and cultures around the globe, especially when it's not beach weather at home.
