A 30 minute presentation describing a brief history of dentistry, some of the current clinical issues, and research being undertaken in the School, was followed by a 60 minute question and answer session from the audience. The Green Room at the Tobacco Factory Café in Bristol was packed with interested attendees who wanted to know more about how microbes in the mouth can cause disease in other parts of the body (see accompanying image), and how research in the School was paving the way for new treatments and preventions.

Science Café is a forum for learning and discussion about a wide range of scientific issues and is run under the auspices of the British Science Association.
