What's New in Pediatric Dentistry for the General Practitioner: The Cutting Edge
This is the cutting edge of pediatric dentistry, and it is all geared towards the general practitioner and family practice. Our pediatric restorative patients are unique. We must treat our children while taking direction from their parents. We must treat a tooth all the while managing behavior. Our choices of materials and techniques are vast and varied. This course will cover several different restorative approaches to care for our kids. Focus will be placed upon indications of each option. Learn to use materials that are suitable to different behavior management situations and explore the bioactivity of restorative alternatives. Densitry for kids just keeps getting better and better. Learn the newest and most innovative techniques and procedures. Step into the future of pediatric dentistry for the general practitioner.

Learning Objectives
At the end of this course, participants should be better able to:
  • Explore novel restorative procedures for primary dentition.

About the Presenter
Carla Cohn, DDSCarla Cohn, DMD
Dr. Cohn graduated from the Faculty of Dentistry at the University of Manitoba in 1991. She then went on to complete a post-graduate internship in Children's Hospital. She entered private practice after graduation and dedicated most of her first decade to working and raising her three sons. She was alarmed at the rampant tooth decay in very young children, despite all of the knowledge and education available on preventing tooth decay. Dr. Cohn wanted to help these children regain their health in a quick and efficient manner and thus began her second decade in practice. The focus of her private practice, at Kids Dental, is on prevention. As a dentist, she looks forward to a future in which we can truly see a decline in cavities. Change can only occur through education. Dr. Cohn's goals for the future are to help educate the community, dental professionals and medical professionals on prevention of tooth decay. Dr. Cohn has lectured nationally and internationally on risk assessment, prevention, behavior management and restorative treatment options. She evaluates dental materials for the Catapult Group and speaks as a clinician who has observed first hand and dealt directly with everything presented in her courses.
