Dr. Nivethanan Kamalendran (Specialist Paediatric Dentist) presents " Tethered Oral Tissues (TOTS)- Connecting the DOTS in TOTS – understanding lip and tongue-tie in children"
Tongue-tie, also known as ankyloglossia, occurs when a persistent lingual frenum restricts tongue movements and interferes with tongue function. Sometimes it can cause difficulty with breastfeeding,speech articulation and malocclusion. For many years, the subject of tongue-tie has been controversial with practitioners of many specialties having widely different views regarding its significance and management. This seminar will cover the overview of tongue-tie and its implications.

Prof. John McMillan (Bioethics Centre) presents " Consent, confidentiality and mature minors "
While making a judgment about whether or not a child is a mature minor is something many doctors do quite often, where they should go for advice about the appropriate test is unclear and the advice they will find, inconsistent. I will describe the different sources of information that a doctor might consider, show their inconsistencies and explain the tests that doctors should refer to when assess whether a minor is ‘mature’.
