Why does disability matter in dentistry and why OneOneTwelve?

Fri 28 April 2023 9:00 AM - 4:00 PM

Why does disability matter in dentistry and why OneOneTwelve?

Understand the context of disability in the oral health space.

We have moved away from a medical model of healthcare to a relational, human rights model that recognises dignity, acknowledges the interdisciplinary environment and web of relationships around a person with disability. This assumes capacity first (rather than incapacity) and centres on a concept of inclusive equality.

The dental profession is uniquely placed to make a real difference to the lives of people with disability, by providing accessible and inclusive oral healthcare.

Develop up to date knowledge of the disability sector and learn from clinicians and those with lived experience.

Learn how to:

  • recognise human rights and why are they important
  • implement the guiding principles for the rights of people with disability in practice
  • develop a patient centred approach to oral care taking into account lived experience with disability
  • interact and have conversations with people with lived experience
  • implement successful strategies.

You will also learn about the OneOneTwelve Initiative, which recruits dental practitioners to take on individuals with special needs and manage their oral health for twelve months, pro bono. Dental practitioners who sign up to work with a patient with disability will automatically join OneOneTwelve’s Inclusive Dental Champions Fellowship Program, which offers seminars and monthly training over an 18 month period.
