Danielle Gibbens, Dental Hygienist

Synopsis:

Regular interaction with clients is a daily occurrence for Dental Hygienists and Oral Health Therapists. With this in mind, you may face situations where your clients claim an alleged breach in your professional duties. Beyond this, there are many other risks faced each day, therefore it’s important to have a strong understanding of professional indemnity insurance and ways to reduce practice risk. BMS’ presentation will cover examples of industry claims, ways to reduce practice risk and key aspects of the professional indemnity insurance policy, as well as other products available exclusively to DHAA members.

BMS - Mr Shamus Breen

Shamus will be presenting on ways to reduce practice risk and key aspects of the professional indemnity insurance policy.

Shamus is the Managing Director of the Australian Affinity office. Shamus has more than 20 years of industry experience, having served senior roles at two of the major international brokers in the affinity and healthcare sectors. His passion for creating meaningful member value for associations and its members has seen him focus on this industry throughout his career as an insurance broker.



Infection Control Workshop

Is your infection control knowledge up-to-date? Do you meet the requirements of the National Law? As a registered dental practitioner, it is YOUR responsibility to ensure you practise in a way that maintains and enhances public health and safety – this includes knowing how to prevent or minimize the risk of the spread of infectious diseases. This hands-on workshop will explore what documentation is required for your practice and how to follow these critical guidelines, to protect both yourself and the public.

Dr Marilyn Owen: Specialist Paediatric Dentist

I am a Specialist Paediatric Dentist who cares for children at Tassie Kids Dental, located in both Hobart and Launceston. Currently, I am the only Children’s Dental Specialist in the state.

In 2002, I obtained my Bachelor of Dental Science degree with honours, from The University of Western Australia. My diverse experiences have included the school dental service, rural government practice and metropolitan private practice in both W.A. and Victoria. Following a period of maternity leave, I undertook, Paediatric Dentist training at The University of Melbourne between 2012 – 2015.

Dental decay and enamel defects (chalky teeth) are of particular interest to me; these research areas were the subject of my postgraduate thesis. My research into enamel defects has involved The D3 Group; I headed the team that successfully obtained the Wrigley Company Foundation ADAF Community Service Grant in 2013 and 2014. I have published articles on this topic in the Australian Dental Association, and I am the Chalky Teeth Campaign Representative for Tasmania.

I have lectured to doctors, dentists and oral health therapists in Tasmania and Victoria, and provide a dental health column for the Child Dental Health Association of Tasmania. At The University of Melbourne I have taught dental students Paediatric Dentistry.

Professionally I am a member of the Australian Dental Association, International Association for Dental Research, Australian and New Zealand Society of Paediatric Dentistry, and Australasian Academy of Paediatric Dentistry.
