A series led by experts and dedicated to health professionals
After the success of SUNSTAR CONVERSATIONS: healthy thinking series in 2020, we wanted to continue focusing on online education and expert knowledge sharing in 2021. That is how the concept of the SUNSTAR CONVERSATIONS PRO webinars was born: led by experts and dedicated to health professionals.
In line with the holistic philosophy of SUNSTAR, we decided to focus this series on the different mouth caring requirements throughout the lifespan and the conditions that may occur.
Each webinar will be dedicated to one specific life stage, from pregnancy to childhood, adulthood and finally the ageing period, and will involve two health experts who will share their experience and discuss their opinion on the specific topic.
SUNSTAR CONVERSATIONS PRO will take place every month until October and will end up with a special session about oral care tips for healthcare professionals. The month of November will be dedicated to a series about the relationships between oral health oral health and systemic health.
After the live stream, all the webinars will be available on our Sunstar Global YouTube channel.

Dentin hypersensitivity relief: getting to the root of the problem!
Prevention and management of major oral diseases – such as dental caries and periodontal disease – often start with effective plaque control. As every oral care professional knows, this also requires effective self-performed oral hygiene from your patients; toothbrushing and interdental cleaning are crucial for achieving and maintaining good oral health. Even though this theory might seem straightforward, the practical application can be difficult, as patient adherence is not always optimal. In those cases, behavioral change is key, but this is an extremely complex and challenging process, especially for an age group whose habits have been established over the course of several decades: middle-aged adults.
In this webinar, you will hear the experts, Prof. Dr. Timothy Newton and Mario Rui Araújo, PhD, take a deep dive into psychology and answer the question: “How to modify behavior in a positive way, and use this to promote oral health in an increasingly vulnerable patient group?”.
