Dr Pepe Shirlaw

A Welcome from the President of the BISOM

I am honoured to be serving as President of the British & Irish Society for Oral Medicine, 2019-2021. The Society has been dedicated to advancing the field of Oral Medicine for several years and at our Annual General Meeting in Bristol in May 2019, we formally changed from “British” to “British & Irish”, recognising the very significant impact that our colleagues in Ireland have had on the specialty.

Oral Medicine is the dental specialty that bridges the interface between medicine and dentistry and many clinicians working in this field have strong links with their medical colleagues, working within all healthcare settings from primary care to hospitals. Oral Medicine is also an academic dental specialty contributing significantly to the education of the next generation of the dental team, as well as conducting clinical research to improve the lives of our patients. The Society aims to support clinical practice, research and training to promote patient care.

I thank my colleagues in Oral Medicine and in our sister specialties of Oral Surgery, Maxillofacial Surgery, Special Care Dentistry and the other dental specialties who work so hard to offer patients the best possible care. I hope you enjoy our website and I encourage you to join us at our next Winter Meeting or Annual Scientific Meeting.

I look forward to further promoting the specialty during my term as President.

With kind regards,
