Dr Barker speaks at the ANZAP Conference Sydney as part of the ANZAP medallion competition

Dr Barker attends the Australia New Zealand Association of Periodontists (ANZAP) Conference in Sydney, March 2015.

I was excited to attend this year’s ANZAP conference in Sydney in March as the keynote speaker, Professor Christoph Hammerle, is one of the known perio ‘gods’ and his knowledge on the conference theme of “Reconstruction of Oral Hard and Soft Tissues” is exceptional. It was a great conference with a lot technical information and new research on the horizon.

As part of the conference I entered into the ANZAP medallion competition. I gave a presentation on my thesis research which was an investigation of different implant materials and chemical treatments and their impact on
developing bone.

It was well received.
