21st century dentistry methods in 18th century library

Dentistry 1

Armagh Public Library was the venue for the start of a training programme on 21st century dentistry methods in its 18th century setting.  Speakers Dr Nicholas Lewis and Dr David Reaney spoke on the subject of implant dentistry as the introduction to the ‘Biomet 3i Synergy Training Program’, which will be held over five sessions.

The Keeper of the Library, the Very Revd Gregory Dunstan, said: ‘We are delighted that this training programme is being held in the Library.  Although far removed from the clinical conditions of contemporary dentistry, the Library was founded to improve the living conditions of all through the growth and sharing of knowledge.  While the Library holds material on dental care from as far back as 1639, today’s emphasis is on techniques which will bring confidence and relief to many in something that matters so much.’
