Dental Students involved in Fluoridation

Dimitri Mulkern BDS3 (first on the left with other dental students) is a student representative for the British Fluoridation Society and was part of a team that presented at a BFS event that took part at Westminster Hall in the Houses of Parliament in February. Speakers included Sir Paul Beresford and Professor Mike Lennon who outlined the work of the society and how to take the positive message of the benefits of water Fluoridation forward. Dimitri talked about how to involve students in the work of the British Fluoridation Society and how dental students working together could make a real difference in changing the gap in health inequality.  The students were also fortunate to be able to attend a live parliamentary session, as guests of Lord Hunt.  The pictures show Dimitri with other dental students who attended the day at the House of Commons.  Dimitri became involved with the British Fluoridation Society over a year ago and attended their meetings where the idea of a student chapter to the organisation was raised.  If you wish to get involved then email Dimitri.
