Course Description

Morning Topic:  An Update in Restorative Care for Children

Kevin Donly, DDS, MS

This course will discuss the early diagnosis of tooth demineralization, focusing on the use of quantitative light fluorescence (QLF). Intervention with fluoride (including fluoride varnish), glass ionomer surface protectants, sealants and minimally invasive products and procedures will be presented. Risk assessment utilization in decision-making for restorative care will be discussed and related to recommendations made by the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry for restorative dentistry care in children.

Course Objectives

As a result of attending this course, you will:

  • Discuss early diagnosis of enamel demineralization and understand preventive regimens available, as well as appropriate intervention with these agents, using minimally invasive techniques.
  • Formulate an understanding of the clinical utilization of traditional, photopolymerized glass ionomer cements and compomers, including indications and contraindications.
  • Discover newer commercially available composite resins and dentin bonding resins, understand their mechanism of action and visualize clinical utilization of these materials.
  • Learn pediatric dentistry standards of care using risk assessment in decision­ making

Afternoon Topic:  The Teeth Fall Out But the Body Remembers: Equipping Children for a Lifetime of Oral Health

Travis Nelson, DDS, MSD, MPH

The foundation for a lifetime of oral health is established in childhood. Although well intentioned, clinicians often place more importance on the restoration of teeth than positive treatment experiences. This course provides perspectives on behavior guidance in a contemporary context. Dr. Nelson will explore the complex relationship of dental fear and early exposure to pain, novel alternative restorative techniques for difficult behavioral situations, medical management of caries, treatment strategies for children with autism spectrum disorders, and pharmacologic behavior guidance adjuncts.

Course Objectives

As a result of attending this course, you will:

  • Appreciate the complex relationship between dental fear and pain exposure.
  • Leverage the continuum of behavior guidance to improve children’s dental experiences.
  • Employ novel alternative restorative techniques for challenging treatment scenarios.
  • Treat caries from a chemotherapeutic perspective.
  • Learn behavioral strategies for children with autism spectrum disorders.
  • Familiarize yourself with pharmacologic techniques used in pediatric dentistry.
