    Deputy Director of Teaching and Learning, Professor/Honorary Consultant in Paediatric Dentistry, University of Sheffield

    Helen was appointed professor and honorary consultant in paediatric dentistry at Sheffield Dental School in 2006. Since then she has developed a keen interest in child-centred oral health research, and am part of a vibrant multi-disciplinary research group, called CREATE ( Through a variety of qualitative and quantitative approaches, their research has sought to engage children more meaningfully, so that we can better understand how different dental conditions, and associated treatments, may impact on them. Current projects include the development and evaluation of a guided self-help cognitive behavioural therapy intervention to reduce dental anxiety and determining clinical and psychosocial outcomes following aesthetic treatment for enamel opacities in children and young people. One of the most rewarding parts of Helen's job is to enthuse and support junior colleagues in their early research careers. Another enjoyable role was being the Scientific Chair for the 2015 IAPD Congress in Glasgow.
