Abstract: Childsmile is the national child oral health improvement programme for Scotland. It was developed as pilots from 2006/7 in response to the public health challenge of poor child oral health. Childsmile recognizes the importance of the social determinants of health, and takes common risk factor and proportionate universal approaches to deliver complex multifaceted interventions in multiple settings and by multidisciplinary teams.

Clinical relevance: This paper describes the theory and principles associated with the development and implementation of Childsmile.

During this webinar Eoin O’Sullivan will take you through his personal journey with digital scanning, explaining how he found himself in a dilemma when he had to replace his first iTero, after he had assumed that the scanner’s capabilities would transition to focus on orthodontics when it was bought out by Align Technology in March 2011. He will share his thoughts about which scanner would best suit his restorative practice, and why he opted for the next generation of iTero over all the other scanners on the market.
