Jan Clarkson (University of Dundee/NHS Education for Scotland) and Craig Ramsay (The University of Aberdeen) told us at previous cabarets to stop brushing our teeth and to skip our scale and polish. Can we conclude from this that everything your dentist tells you is wrong? If so, how can we avoid fillings and worse? It’s not straightforward – in fact, it’s political. Jan and Craig will invite you to separate fact from fiction in the emerging evidence from the world of dentistry and will suggest you consider the influence of global politics.
