Description

Pediatric dental patients present diverse and challenging treatment needs due to their unique dental and behavioral developmental stages. In this course, the most common treatment needs of children are reviewed and the most popular treatment modalities presented. Decision-making and treatment planning for when, how, and with what materials to manage the restorative needs of the pediatric patient will be presented. Restorative management using the latest in esthetic primary crowns and resins will be presented in addition to more conventional restorative approaches. The goal of this course is to prepare clinicians to manage the restorative treatment needs of children presenting with minimal restorative needs to those requiring full mouth rehabilitation.

Tim Wright, DDS, MS
