Dr Emma Corrigan, who won Best Presentation at the Congress.

Thirteen members of the Irish Society for Disability and Oral Health attended the biennial Congress of the International Association for Disability and Oral Health (iADH) in Berlin in October. Dr Alison Dougall and Prof. June Nunn from the Dublin Dental University Hospital presented an educational symposium, which outlined resources developed by the iADH to support education in special care dentistry. The Irish delegation also contributed 10 short oral and poster presentations outlining special care services provided, service development initiatives and research undertaken, the second largest contribution by any country to the event. Dr Emma Corrigan won an iADH award for her presentation of an initiative supporting a homeless population to access care under the Dental Treatment Services Scheme.
