 OSAP 2017 Annual Conference - The Safest Dental Visit™ Make It Happen!

TITLE

 Graphic Dentistry:  The intersection of Comics and Dentistry


 

DESCRIPTION

Comics are powerful combinations of words and images that register human experience: emotions, feelings and actions. Graphic Medicine is the study of comics in the service of healthcare delivery and education. This workshop will explore how Graphic Dentistry can be used to advance dental safety for practitioners and patients. Attendees will create their own original comics depicting dental dilemmas and safety strategies. This session will give infection preventionists a unique and high impact educational tool.

 

 

SPEAKER(S)

 Craigan Usher MD
