Dental Alveolar infection

The Odontology Section of The Royal Academy of Medicine in Ireland would like to thank our speaker, Dr. Eddie Fahy, and the attendees of our first event of this academic year on Tuesday 18th October 2022 on ‘The Spread of Dentoalveolar Infection.’ This synchronous online event again enjoyed a large attendance from dental students & staff in both Dublin & Cork Dental Hospitals as well as from dental & medical clinicians from the HSE. Dr. Fahy discussed the pathways and factors involved in the onset and spread of odontogenic infection including the most severe consequences of untreated infection. This lecture and Q&A session were recorded for asynchronous access. If attendees are interested in accessing the recording, please feel free to contact the Odontology Section.

 With thanks to our speaker, Dr. Eddie Fahy, whose biography is attached below.
