Background Synopsis

DDRC Healthcare,  Marguerite St Leger Dowse, Dr Gary Smerdon, EUROTEK sponsor, Health of Divers, divers teeh, Rosemary E Lunn, Roz Lunn, The Underwater Marketing CompanyScuba divers should ensure a high standard of dental health and receive dental checks regularly. Studies have discussed the barodontalgia, and orofacial barotraumas of scuba divers, but few have attempted to observe the broad state of dental health in recreational divers. As part of an ongoing study of the health of UK recreational divers, DDRC attempted to gain an insight into the general dental health of divers and other related problems experienced.

The following day Marguerite St Leger Dowse and Dr Gary Smerdon of DDRC Healthcare presented some preliminary findings from the latest element of the ‘Health of Divers’ project.

Both talks were very well received. In fact Marguerite’s talk went down so well that she won the ‘Associates Award for Excellence in Presentation’ Award.
