Dr Ciara Scott
Ciara loved science when she was at school and still does. That’s because science helps her to understand how our faces and teeth develop, how braces work to straighten teeth, what causes dental problems and how we can prevent them. Ciara is a dentist and orthodontist and looks after children’s teeth. During her presentation she will share some of the science of what she does and how to become your own best dentist.
