BSSPD 56th Annual Conference


Hilton Hotel,York. 6th and 7th April 2009

The 56th Annual BSSPD conference was held in the week before Easter at the Hilton Hotel in York and was the first of a new two day format for the BSSPD. The conference was opened on the Monday by the President, Professor Mark Thomason, who expressed his delight in being able to present a superb line-up of internationally regarded speakers that would help the meeting re-visit the precepts of the Montreal Consensus Conference in 2002 and go on to develop the BSSPD York Consensus Statement on Implant supported Overdentures. Monday’s programme was a symposium on Mandibular Overdentures, at which the presenters offered a synopsis of the research available on the impact of edentulism on patients and efficacy of implant-supported mandibular overdentures in the edentulous mandible. Emphasis was given to both qualitative and quantitative research based on patient-centred outcomes of treatment. The team of speakers comprised Professor Joce- The President of the BSSPD, Professor Mark Thomason with the speakers from left to lyne Feine from Montreal, the leader of the right Dr Janice Ellis, Professor Paula Moynihan, Professor Jocelyne Feine, Dr Cath Exley and 2002 McGill Consensus meeting and Associ- Professor Frauke Müller. ate Editor of the JDR; Professor Ignace Naert from Leuven - (both recipients of The IADR Distinguished Scientist Awards for Prosthodontics), Professor Frauke Müller from Genève, Professor Paula Moynihan, Dr Janice Ellis and Dr Cath Exley from Newcastle. The speakers presented both qualitative and quantitative data that strongly supported the concepts of the use of implant supported mandibular overdentures as the minimal standard of care for edentulous patients. The draft consensus statement was developed by the presenters and the BSSPD Council and was made available to all members via the Society’s website. It was modified in the light of the symposium discussion following the presentations and members’ feedback. The final version of the Statement will be published in the BDJ and in the autumn issue of the BSSPD newsletter, as well as being available on the BSSPD website
