The challenge of Special Care Dentistry is to provide routine dental care to complex individuals. This can involve a variety of behavioural and pharmacological approaches but often these are overlooked in favour of the use of general anaesthesia.

Since our highly successful study day on general anaesthesia in SCD in June 2010, the Greater Manchester SCD Network members felt that it would be useful to explore alternative approaches to GA. It was felt that sedation and behavioural techniques are underused in SCD and can provide a route to the acceptance of routine dental care.

We have invited a range of respected and knowledgeable speakers to give their insights into a broad range of alternatives to general anaesthetic.

By the end of the day, we hope that delegates will be enthused by the techniques described and want to access further training, in order to incorporate them into their clinical practice. This can only improve the quality of experience for Special Care patients.

I look forward to welcoming you and presenting a stimulating and relevant programme.


Simon Tiller


Chair of the Greater Manchester Special Care Dentistry Network
