About 60 students and members of staff attended this introduction to the wider role of dentistry which was entitled “the Effect of Jaw Problems on the Rest of the Body”. The connection between the airway and malocclusion was demonstrated. This was followed by a brief presentation on Posture, Temporo-Mandibular Joint Dysfunction, Sleep Disorders and Movement Disorders. Dr Brendan Stack’s video included several cases of Tourette’s and other movement disorders and showed how an oral appliance could reduce symptoms by a considerable degree.

Mention was made of the merger of the British Society for the Study of Cranio-Mandibular Disorders with the Cranio Group (BSSCMD), and the students were encouraged to join. Annual student membership is £20 which includes two issues of the journal Cranio UK and several study group meetings held in London. http://www.jawache.com. The next meeting is on 8 January, 6.30pm at the RAC club, Pall Mall, London.

Observing the early signs of malfunction enables corrective treatment in the growing child.

The meeting ended with a lively question session.
