Title: “Minimally Invasive Caries Management for Pediatric Patients”
Description: This presentation will discuss the most up-to-date information regarding non-
restorative caries management. Included, will be both current and emerging techniques and
materials used for re-mineralizing and arresting caries. Also, discussed will be
minimally invasive strategies such as the use of glass ionomer material and Hall crowns.
Title: “Medically Compromised Patients with Congenital and Acquired Disorders”
Description: Medically compromised patients make up a significant pool of pediatric dental
patients. Patients with physical disorders such as asthma, seizure disorders, and congenital
heart defects are at greater risk of poor oral health. Likewise, poor oral health can have a
substantial impact on their overall health status and can also interfere with their medical
therapy. A comprehensive approach to managing these patients will be presented with
emphasis on prevention, early intervention and team-based care.
Speaker: Drs. Jessica Lee, Scott Cashion and Amr Moursi
Title: “Emerging Clinical Techniques in Pediatric Dentistry”
Description: Autotransplantation and Frenectomies
In this workshop, two emerging clinical techniques will be presented. The first will be on tooth autotransplantation. In children and adolescents, the management of missing permanent teeth can be challenging. Treatment options include prosthodontic replacement, orthodontic space closure or tooth autotransplantation. The workshop will provide instruction in the area of tooth auto-transplantation as an adjunct to trauma management. The second technique discussed will be the often contentious area of frenectomies. The evidence base for the risks and benefits of frenectomies will be presented and various diagnostic scales and criteria will be addressed. In addition, conservative surgical techniques will be reviewed.
