The 2023 Pierre Fauchard Academy Induction Ceremony for new fellows will take place on September 15th in Dublin at the Royal College of Physicians of Ireland.
There are two extension options around the Convocation; a pre- and a post-Convocation tour. The 5-night pre-Convocation extension travels to beautiful Cork, Cahir and Kilkenny and the 1-night post-Convocation tour is in Dublin.
Before Convocation, take in the sweeping history, breathtaking landscapes and local flavour of Ireland's south and west, from Cork to Cahir to Kilkenny. You will also stay in some distinctive hotels with magnificent settings for you to enjoy. After Convocation, spend a night in Dublin to explore this charming and cultured city.
The tour is led by Derek Mahony, who is the UK Regent for the Convocation. He will be accompanied by an experienced national guide during the tour.
Derek Mahony is a Sydney based orthodontist who has spoken to thousands of practitioners about the benefits of interceptive orthodontic treatment. Early in his career Dr Mahony learned from leading clinicians the dramatic effect functional appliance therapy can afford patients in orthodontic treatment. He has been combining the fixed and functional appliance approach ever since. His lectures are based on the positive impact such a combined treatment approach has had on his orthodontic results and the benefits this philosophy provides in reducing extractions of teeth. After completing his Dental Degree at the University of Sydney Dr Mahony completed his Masters degree in orthodontics at the Eastman Dental Hospital, Institute of Dental Surgery, London, followed by a diploma in orthodontics at the Royal College of Surgeons, Edinburgh. Dr. Mahony has also passed the Royal College of Dentists in Canada post graduate examination in the field of orthodontics.
