Clinicians, researchers and patient and public representatives will give presentations on research in areas including:

  • Novel diagnostics and therapeutics for oral and dental disease
  • Oral cancer and oral complications of cancer therapies
  • Multimorbidity of oral diseases and systemic disorders.

Oral diseases rank amongst the most prevalent global health conditions, affecting 3.5 billion people, and have a substantial negative effect on individuals, communities, healthcare systems and the wider society.

The ODM theme brings together the expertise of the:

  • UCL Eastman Dental Institute, the largest institute in Europe for postgraduate education and research in oral health and disease, and
  • UCLH Royal National ENT & Eastman Dental Hospitals, one of the UK's largest secondary health care providers for oral and dental disease.

The theme’s research is aligned to the most pressing research needs co-identified by patients, clinicians and stakeholders, in a bid to address and solve key challenges of oral diseases that affect people of all ages.
