Course Description

Pediatric Dentistry for the Active Child
Dentistry for Children is fun, varied, simple yet complicated, challenging, rewarding, and very very important. No short lecture on pediatric dentistry can cover all of the things which comprise this specialty, but this presentation hopes to focus on the things that a dentist will come in contact with the active child. The most in-depth focus will be on dental trauma and sports related items.

The presentation is organized by age dealing with the dental activities that highlight different age groups. The four basic age groups and the topics to be covered are; infants, age 0-2 (feeding, frenal attachments, nonnutritive sucking, and primary tooth trauma); Age 3-5 or preschoolers (Behavior management for in office restorative treatment and the new dental paradigms of caries treatment including minimally invasive techniques such as the use of Silver Diamine Fluoride and the Hall technique), Ages 6-12, Elementary school age (permanent tooth dental trauma), Ages 13-18, Adolescents and high schoolers.(sports injury prevention and athletic mouth guards, poor choices available to adolescents such as smoking, vaping and the use of sugar sweetened beverages).

Active kids are healthy kids and oral health is a part of total health. But understanding the world of the child is challenging and putting it in the perspective of how children stay active is useful to treating them successfully and enjoyably. This will be as evidence based as possible and almost all of the examples and cases were treated and photographed by Dr. Mills himself. These will be real life examples that all of the attendees can envision seeing in their own daily practices.
