Course Overview
After completing this course, you will discover why this Dummett Memorial Lecture is a rare opportunity for many pediatric dentists and general dentists to re-examine and re-think the rationales they have relied on for years to diagnose, treatment plan and treat common pediatric problems. Dr. Kisby will challenge both pediatric dentists and general dentists to consider using some of the latest techniques and materials to better treat these same common pediatric problems. During the Saturday workshop, a variety of common pediatric dental problems are presented in a consistent case format so participants can combine their experiences with the challenges of the lectures to decide on the best diagnoses and treatment plans for a diverse group of pediatric patients.

Included in this course are the latest biology of caries formation (hint: it isn't S mutans and there is a genetic component!) and prevention, the rationale for replacing formocresol with the tricalcium silicates for pulp therapy in primary teeth, the indications for SDF, and the indications for the new restorative materials. Topics to be covered include:

  • Common pediatric medications and their role in caries
  • The latest information on the caries process and the application of specific modalities in prevention
  • Behavior Management for safe and effective treatment (e.g., evidence based dentistry showing the positive effects of a parent in the operatory and understanding the role of family stress on the developing fetus and how it affects future patient cooperation)
  • Combining new chairside dental diagnostic aids with a Caries Risk Assessment to maximize individualized dental treatment instead of 'the same treatment for everyone'
  • Pulp Therapy: Indications for an Indirect Pulp Cap and pulpotomies in primary teeth with MTA, Biodentine, and the new biosilicate
  • Silver Diamine Fluoride - a new material and technique for caries in primary and permanent teeth
  • Application of new glass ionomer cements and composite materials for optimum results

Learning Objectives
At the end of this course, participants should be better able to:

  • Understand the evolving caries process and newly discovered cariogenic bacteria
  • Describe the appropriate prevention plan for different cases
  • Describe the steps and indications for using SDF
  • Learn when to use the appropriate restorative material for primary and permanent teeth
  • Describe the pulpotomy technique in primary teeth using the tricalcium silicates and biosilicates
  • List and describe the indications for the different materials for pulp therapy in primary teeth
