Back to the Future: a look back as dental material science and technology advance into the future
Speaker: Mike Gow
Date: April 24, 2020
Room: Speaker room 2
The aim of the session is to reflect on the pioneering work of William Dall in porcelain inlays as compared with some modern and developing direct and indirect materials and techniques.
In this session, delegates will learn about the life, research, inventions and clinical work of Scottish dentist William Dall (1855-1932) who documented some of his life’s work in the book ‘Ground Porcelain Inlays’ which was published following his death. By looking back to the past, the session will explore the future of technological advances and dental material science in our pursuit for long lasting, natural looking dental restorations.
By the end of the session delegates will be able to:
- Understand the significance and key points of the Dental Acts of 1878 and 1921.
- Describe how William Dall travelled the world in the pursuit of furthering the science of dentistry.
- Detail how Dall’s materials and techniques compare and contrast with some modern and developing direct and indirect materials and techniques.
- Understand what the future may hold for direct and indirect materials and techniques.
