F38 – The Oh-So-Many Myths of Kids Dentistry

So you think you know about pediatric dentistry. You’re either a new grad or a seasoned professional who has kept up on trends in restorative and Implant dentistry but now there’s a kid sitting in the chair and all you remember is Prevention 101 and those 15 hours of Pediatric Dental clinic and lectures in dental school. You’re panicking. If you’re a staff member the kids have usually been pushed your way for behavior management and parent counseling. For years, we have spread myths that we learned in dental school without truly analyzing the research and the common sense of the things we do on a daily basis. We’ll be evaluating evidence based research on the issues of caries, hygiene, diet, risk assessment, prevention, teething, restorations and what really stops caries -it’s not brushing and flossing!

Learning Objectives:

  • Evaluate new products and procedures for children using evidence based dentistry
  • Develop a preventive strategy based on current science of the interrelationship between diet, frequency, cariogenicity
  • Improve his or her knowledge base to become comfortable with seeing and treating children in the office
