On a visit to Samoa in January 2017 , I was lucky to meet up with dental friends of my Samoan dental therapist friend Pu’a. Our Samoan peers are looking for support to upgrade facilities and clinical techniques. The 22 dental therapists from Upolu and Savai’i are looking forward to a two day seminar where new skills, product and equipment can be discussed and they can look to implement them in their daily practice which will result in better oral health outcomes for their communities
May 2018 update: oral health professionals have been invited to attend the South Pacific Dental Congress which has a SSC workshop included.
