OUCH! That Hurts: Assessing & Treating Dental Emergencies in Children

Do you worry when you hear that Sally has hit her head and injured her mouth? Do you dread Monday mornings and the weekend emergencies that follow? Have you gone into the office on a weekend morning for an emergency call only to find the emergency was an exfoliating tooth? Does your front staff respond appropriately to real dental emergencies by screening fully and communicating to the back? Do you realize that technology can help? This lecture reviews the most common dental emergencies in children and their treatment including rapid neurological assessment, treatment and followup protocols. We will go through the process from the initial phone call screening through scheduling and treatment helping your office seamlessly include emergencies in the daily routine.

Learning Objectives

1. Develop a protocol for screening and triaging emergencies
2. Review the current protocols for treating dental fractures and
traumatized teeth
3. Learn to treat and identify concurrent soft tissue injuries
4. Provide follow up care on an emergency appropriate to the patient’s

The 4 P’s of Pediatric Dentistry: Psychology, Pharmacology, Physiology and Phamily

Do you break into a sweat when kids show up in your office or you even think they are coming? Do you wish that there was an attachment for nitrous oxide that could be given to parents? Is there an on/off switch? There’s no doubt about it- kids are different and they’re not just mini versions of adults (though we do carry our neuroses through life). We will discuss what factors contribute to a child’s growth and development and help you plan appropriate behavior management and treatment options based on the 4 p’s: psychology, pharmacology, physiology and most important, the phamily.

1. Understand diagnostic modalities appropriate to children and
factors that influence development of child and how they can help
treatment at the various developmental stages
2. Understand and manage the behavior of the underparented,
overstressed, no limits child of the new decade
3. Improve the office’s knowledge base to become comfortable with
seeing and treating children
4. Review how family and social influences are redefining and shaping
the child and family relationship
