Science Café Las Vegas

Science Cafe Logo

Science Café Las Vegas, supported by the UNLV College of Sciences, is an organization geared towards bringing fascinating science discussions to the public of Southern Nevada.

We invite scientists to give short (~10-15 minute) presentations to the public at our fantastic venue, McMullan's Irish Pub, and then have roundtable discussions about anything you could possibly wish to know. Science Café Las Vegas is on the first Wednesday of every month from 6:30-8 p.m.

Come on down to the pub for lively science discussion, delicious brews, fantastic food, and a great time! Family friendly (under age 21 allowed).

NEXT VIRTUAL SCIENCE CAFÉ: August 5

Virtual Speaker: Christina Demopoulos, UNLV School of Dental Medicine

"The Mouth is Part of the Body Too"

In this talk, Dr. Demopoulos will discuss the Early Childhood Caries Prevention Project (ECCPP) through the UNLV School of Dental Medicine. Demopoulos was approached by a national organization to develop and implement the program in Nevada and several other states. ECCPP was developed to be a comprehensive evidence-based program to address the oral needs of young children from 0 to 5 years of age. The project aims to reduce the number of cavities by the age of five by providing family and children engagement and education, oral health screenings, and fluoride varnish. We work closely with families to establish a dental home and  keep a case management for those children identified as having a high risk of getting cavities.

The virtual presentation will be presented via Webex.
