We are delighted to welcome Professor John Gibson to Nottingham for the second year in a row to provide a one day Master Class on Facial Pain Management and Local Anaesthetic. Please note, this master class is not specifically related to implant dentistry meaning practitioners who are not placing implants may also attend this course.
The aim of the day is to refresh delegates’ understanding of the common and not-so-common orofacial pain syndromes, indicate what management might be appropriate in a primary care setting, and consider which patients should be referred into secondary care.
Delegates attending this session will:1. Understand the multi-factorial nature of orofacial pain, including psychosocial impacts.
John will also provide an ITI Study Club that same evening at the same location on Medicine related to Dentistry. You can find more information about this in the ITI section of this brochure.

He was, until recently, a chairman of the General Dental Council’s Fitness to Practice Panel and is Visiting Professor in Oral Medicine in Charlotte, North Carolina, USA.
He is Honorary Consultant in Oral Medicine to the UK army. John chairs the Board of Dental Protection Ltd (DPL) and sits on the Council of the Medical Protection Society (MPS).
