In his lecture, Prof Banerjee will define the important terminology and principles behind MI – the minimum intervention oral healthcare (MIOC) delivery framework, including its patient-focused, team-delivered, four interlinked clinical domains of disease identification, disease prevention and control, minimally invasive operative interventions and recall/review. He will focus on the primary and secondary prevention & control of caries domain, specifically non-operative and micro-invasive preventive protocols, including biofilm control, remineralisation and sealants. He will describe how all members of the oral healthcare team must be involved in this caries management process throughout the life-course of the patient.
