About the Event

About Dr Audrey Kershaw

Dr Audrey Kershaw qualified in Dentistry from Glasgow University in 1987 and was awarded a Fellowship in Dental Surgery from the Royal College Surgeons of Edinburgh in 1991. She is recognised as a Specialist in Oral Surgery by the General Dental Council. She worked extensively around England to gain experience in Maxillo-facial and Oral Surgery hospital posts. She examines for the Royal College Surgeons (Ed) and has previously examined for the General Dental Council’s International Qualifying examination at home and abroad. She has 9 peer reviewed publications to her name. Audrey was heavily involved with undergraduate student teaching until 2017. Her recent work with patients with hypermobility and/or Ehlers-Danlos  Syndrome (EDS)  has enabled  her to highlight the relevance of  connective tissue issues to her  dental colleagues.  Audrey has a very patient centered, caring and holistic approach to patient care. She very much realises that although the work she does is maybe routine to herself, that this is very much a new, unique and unknown experience for the patient. 

NB: This session will be patient-orientated. If you are a professional/clinician you are very welcome to attend as Dr Kershaw is keen to raise awareness for all audiences - but please bear in mind that patients will be present so any questions asked should reflect that.
