2017 Conference Theme: Dental Trauma in Children & Adolescents The theme for the 2017 Annual Conference on September 14, 15 & 16, according to Local Organizing Committee (LOC) Chair, Dr. Charles Lekic, will showcase to the Pediatric Dental community, speakers with extraordinarily high academic and clinical reputations world-wide. On Friday, ‘The Legend’, Dr. Jens O. Andreasen will deliver the Keynote session: New studies on the long-term fate of traumatized primary teeth and consequences for permanent successors, and new knowledge and pulp healing events in traumatized permanent teeth suffering luxation injuries. The Scientific Sessions will include: one of the North America's top dental scientist Dr. Christopher McCulloch, “Healing Potential of Oral Soft and Mineralized Tissues in the Paediatric Patient”; the past RCDC President Dr. Leland McFadden, “Treatment of Facial Injuries in Children and Adolescents”; a well-known dental researcher Dr. Rodrigo Cunha, “Endodontic Consideration when Treating Complications due to Dental Trauma”.

The Fort Garry Hotel is a designated historic site. Now in its 10th decade, this former Grand Trunk Pacific Railway hotel is one of Winnipeg’s most prestigious landmarks. The “Chateaustyle” architecture with steep roof lines, expansive wall surfaces, turrets, ornatelydecorated windows and lavish ornamentation, is recognized internationally as distinctly Canadian. In 1913 the hotel was to be called “The Selkirk”, but was instead named The Fort Garry, after Upper Fort Garry which once stood at the junction of the Red and Assiniboine Rivers in the area called The Forks (a 15 minute walk). The special hotel rate is valid until August 14th, if rooms are still available.

PRESIDENT’S MESSAGE / MOT DU PRÉSIDENT Dear colleagues, I hope all of you managed to enjoy the winter months wherever you are located in this great country. Having said that I am sure we are all excited about the arrival of the summer season. It has been a busy year so far for the Academy. We face many challenges from the arrival of silver diamine fluoride, re-writing of sedation guidelines across the country, equitable funding for government supported dental programs, etc. I know you will agree that the key to any organization’s success is the perceived value the members receive by supporting the organization. The hard work of our members that volunteer their precious time to the Academy keep us strong. Communication between the Executive and the various committees via regularly scheduled teleconferences with our Executive Director keep our efforts focussed and coordinated. Through our representation on CDSA (Canadian Dental Specialties Association), CPS Oral Health Section, RCDC, AAPD, and government we stay relevant and maintain our national voice. In support of these efforts we currently represent in excess of 90% of pediatric dentists across Canada as members. The 2017 CAPD/ACDP Annual Conference takes place on September 14-15-16 in Winnipeg, Manitoba. Please mark these dates in your Calendar and register NOW at With the wonderful support of our new and returning sponsors and exhibitors this will be another great meeting to learn, network and celebrate our specialty!!! I personally look forward to seeing each of you!

Dr. Paul Andrews President, CAPD/ACDP Chers collègues, J’espère que vous avez réussi à profiter des mois d’hiver, là où vous habitez dans notre beau grand pays. Néanmoins, je suis sûr que nous sommes tous ravis que la saison estivale soit enfin de retour. L’Académie connaît, jusqu’à maintenant, une année très chargée. Nous sommes confrontés à de nombreux défis, dont l’arrivée du fluorure d’argent diamine, la refonte des directives de sédation partout au pays, le financement équitable des programmes dentaires subventionnés par l’État, etc. Vous conviendrez que la clé du succès de toute organisation réside dans la valeur perçue des bénéfices que les membres retirent de leur appui à celle-ci. Le dur labeur des membres qui consacrent bénévolement de leur temps précieux à l’Académie constitue notre force. La communication entre l’exécutif et les divers comités, par le biais de téléconférences régulières avec notre directeur exécutif, nous permet de bien canaliser et cibler nos efforts. Grâce à notre représentation au sein de l’ACSD (Association canadienne des spécialités dentaires), de la section de santé buccodentaire de la SCP, du CRCDC et de l’AAPD, ainsi qu’auprès du gouvernement, nous demeurons pertinents et renforçons notre position à titre de porte-parole national. Ce qui contribue aussi à cela, c’est le fait que les membres que nous représentons actuellement regroupent plus de 90 % des dentistes pédiatriques des quatre coins du Canada. Le congrès annuel 2017 de l’ACDP/CAPD se tiendra les 14, 15 et 16 septembre à Winnipeg, au Manitoba.

Meet the Chair of the Winnipeg Local Organizing Committee…

Dr. Charles Lekic Chair, LOC, 2017 Annual Conference in Winnipeg, Manitoba You volunteered to be the Chair of the CAPD/ACDP Winnipeg Annual Conference in 2017. Why should members and other Pediatric Dentists travel to Winnipeg for this event? This year the scientific program at the CAPD/ACDP conference will include outstanding speakers among such, Dr. Jens Andreasen, “the legend” and “the father of dental traumatology” we know and practice today. Winnipeg is also the home to one of the best ballet groups in North America, home to the Jets, to many exciting historical sites and the largest Human Rights museum in the world that will be hosting the CAPD/ACDP reception night. What is your connection with Winnipeg? I arrived from Toronto 21 years ago to take the position at the University of Manitoba. I was invited to make the changes to the undergraduate program and possibly develop the graduate program in pediatric dentistry. Collectively, both goals have been fulfilled. In general, why are events such as the Annual Conference, important for Pediatric Dentists to attend? The Annual Conference is the place where many very relevant decisions for our specialty are to be reached. It is also an event where important clinical and research information is to be shared that could lead to the improved patient care. It is also the place and time to meet old friends and colleagues. Specifically, what is it about the scientific program at the conference that will enhance the careers of those attending? This conference has a unique topic related to dental trauma in children and adolescents. This is an important part of care pediatric dentists provide almost on daily basis. The selection of Dr. Andreasen as the key note speaker and speakers such as Dr. McCulloch, Dr. McFadden and Dr. Cunha will provide the one time opportunity to be part of something special and memorable. Why did you choose to specialize in pediatric dentistry? Working with children is fun and they are “special people” in every possible way. At the same time, I worked briefly with adults and I didn’t like it. I apologise to adults for what I just said. Where did you do your training? At the University of Belgrade and the University of Copenhagen.



What do you enjoy the most about your job? The fact that there is never the same day when it comes to working with children and that pediatric dentistry is the entire dentistry applied to children. How exciting is that?! What do you find most challenging about your job? Working with some parents can be quite challenging. One should not forget, that rarely if ever, it is the “fault of the child patient” but on contrary it mostly relates to the upbringing. What is the most misunderstood aspect about Pediatric Dentistry? The notion that there is one approach in managing a child patient. Trying to use one way approach is the most common reason for being unsuccessful in treating pediatric dental patients. You have a Committee of Volunteers helping to plan and implement the Annual Conference, including Drs. Jay Biber, Chris Yue and Brad Klus. What is the message you would send to Pediatric Dental Students, Graduates and Active Members about (a) the value of Volunteering? Volunteering is part of giving back and making the difference. These are the values on which our specialty was founded. (b) the value of getting involved with CAPD/ACDP? Being part of CAPD/ACDP is being part of the professional family. What is more important than to support your “family”? As you seem to lead a fairly busy life, what do you do to relax and unwind? So far I am sleeping well and that I believe is an important part of relaxation.

Remember to Reserve your accommodation as soon as possible at the Fort Garry Hotel in Downtown Winnipeg Reserve at 1-800-665-8088 A block of rooms has been set aside* for the Annual Conference with rates for Single or Double rooms at $159.00 plus taxes.

He did his postgraduate training in Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery at the University Hospital in Copenhagen, where he now is an associate Professor. Dr. Andreasen has authored 400 publications and 12 textbooks, covering topics such as dental traumatology, tooth replantation and autotransplantation, tooth eruption and tooth impaction. In relation to traumatology the Textbook and Color Atlas of .Dental Traumatology is now in its 5th edition and includes 62 contributors. He founded the interactive Dental Trauma Guide in 2008 which is now being used in 180 countries. It contains information of a series of prospective long term studies of all types of traumatic dental injuries carried out at the trauma center and Department of Oral and Maxillo-Facial Surgery as well as information from 50 animal experiments reproducing treatment scenarios of various dental traumas affecting primary as well as permanent teeth. Dr. Andreasen has received four honorary doctorate degrees and has been an invited lecturer in 49 countries. Course outline: 1. Primary tooth traumatic injuries. New knowledge about healing events and healing complications. A survey of 6 fracture types and 6 luxation types. 2. Transferred damage to permanent successors. How big is the risk and can this be predicted knowing the type of trauma and age of the patient? 3. How sensitive to trauma are the various cell components in the developing tooth germ? Can they regenerate after trauma and what happens if this is not the case? . of permanent teeth is very complex and has been analyzed experimentally and 4. Pulpal healing after luxation clinically at the Dental Trauma Clinic in Copenhagen, Denmark for more than 50 years. This lecture will demonstrate these varieties of pulpal healing and the long-term risks related to each injury type. Learning objectives: 1. What are the possible healing events after trauma in the primary dentition and can they be predicted? 2. How sensitive are the permanent successors to traumas in the primary dentition? 3. Which parts of the developing tooth germ can regenerate after trauma? 4. If pulpal healing takes place after trauma in the permanent dentition, what types of tissue will then be found in the pulpal chamber? Are these healing types stable over time?

DR. FELICITY HARDWICK RCDC Councillor for Pediatric Dentistry and Council Representative Why did you choose to specialize in pediatric dentistry? I had a very influential lecturer while in undergraduate dentistry at the University of Pretoria, Dr. Birgit Shermann. She had specialized as much as one could in South Africa (pediatric dentistry is not yet a recognized speciality in South Africa) in treating only children, and made me realize there was a great need for dentists who enjoyed treating children and were ready to take the extra time our young patients often need. Where did you do your training? My dental degree (1982) is from the University of Pretoria in South Africa. My pediatric dentistry training (1990) was completed at Georgetown University and the Children’s National Medical Center in Washington DC. What do you enjoy the most about your job? I love working with children, as they tell you how they feel with none of the social cues that adults so often have. What do you find most challenging? The high rates of decay that we still find in young children i.e. Early Childhood Caries, after 25+ years in the field I am disappointed that we as a profession have not been able to get out the message of prevention to avoid children suffering from the devastating effects of ECC. What is the most misunderstood aspect about Pediatric Dentistry? The number of children with ECC. So many people in the public think that children don’t get cavities anymore! Industry Involvement. You volunteered to be the Co-Chair of the CAPD/ACDP Vancouver Annual Conference in 2013 and now you are the RCDC Representative to the CAPD/ACDP Executive Committee. Why do you volunteer? I have LOVED my career as a pediatric dentist, and to use a cliché, I see volunteering as a way to give back to my profession. I hope that my enthusiasm and volunteering will inspire other dentists to get involved.



Felicity’s Office Team at a Cooking Class

Are you involved in other volunteer positions other than those with CAPD/ACDP? Yes, I have always been involved in organized dentistry in some way, likely due to the fact that my mother always told me that to make things better you had better get involved! Besides the RCDC where I am now on the Executive, I also volunteer as an examiner for the American Board of Pediatric Dentistry, as well as being the BC representative for the Western Society of Pediatric Dentistry (a component society of the American Academy of Pediatric dentistry). What is your message to Pediatric Dentists (Students, Graduates, Active in the Profession) about the value of volunteering (the value to the individual; the value to the profession)? I believe that by volunteering/being involved in organized dentistry, you receive far more than you give. I have made life-long friends and have colleagues all over the world who I have met through my involvement with pediatric dentistry. I also believe that your patients enjoy knowing you are “giving back”, and that you will increase your practice size, as parents will seek you out, seeing you as a “leader” in your profession. Looking at a Crystal Ball, what innovations in the profession do you foresee (or dream about) in the next 30 years? Likely a growth in group practices as “work-life” balance increases in importance. I also hope that prevention will have “won” and that a “cure” for the overwhelming problem of ECC will have been found, so that children are not still having to undergo surgery to restore and remove teeth before their 3rd birthday! As you seem to lead a fairly busy life, what do you do to relax and unwind? I live on Vancouver Island so there are so many opportunities to relax and unwind – spending time with my husband, Michael (who is very supportive of all my volunteering) golfing, reading, walking our dogs or travelling around this beautiful province and country are all some of the ways I spend my spare time.

DR. ELSA HUI-DERKSEN Chair, Scientific Committee You volunteered to be the Chair of the CAPD/ACDP Scientific Committee. While the committee has many responsibilities, what do you see as the overall goal of the Committee? CAPD/ACDP is the national voice of pediatric dentistry in Canada. The overall goal of the Scientific Committee is to support the Executive Committee and the members of the CAPD/ACDP on matters relating to the advancement, standards and practice of pediatric dentistry in Canada. What should CAPD/ACDP members know/understand about the work of the Scientific Committee? The Scientific Committee is a group of 8 members and the Chair that works year round to support the CAPD/ACDP Executive Committee. The members of the Scientific Committee have varied experience from academics, private practice and hospital dentistry. The Scientific Committee has a number of roles and responsibilities including the organizing and judging of the 3M Oral Care Graduate Student Research Presentations at the Annual Meeting, reviewing literature and making recommendations to the Executive with respect to evidence-based practice of pediatric dentistry. Additionally, members of the Scientific Committee work hard on reviewing evidence-based literature to provide the best possible clinical practice guidelines and national positions on oral health for the pediatric and special needs population. The Scientific Committee also works with the local organizing committees in recommending topics and speakers at the Annual Conference. From the perspective of the Scientific Committee, what challenges do you see ahead for Pediatric Dentistry as one of the dental specialties in Canada? Pediatric dentistry is a speciality that I see is the interconnecting circle, much like the caries process. It involves the child, parent, and practitioner with the goal of providing the best possible oral health for the child. I think that we live in an era where change is happening very quickly. Accessibility to information is readily at one’s fingertips and parenting styles have changed. I think pediatric dentists face challenges daily with social media and more lenient parenting practices. Traditional techniques of behaviour management are less accepted by parents and there is already a trend towards more advanced behaviour management techniques such as general anesthesia, a resource that is already limited in accessibility.



In general, why do you volunteer? (What do you get out of it?) I think volunteering is a great opportunity to meet other people, learn and give back to the profession. I like that I am continually improving myself as a pediatric dentist outside the clinical setting and can bring all these experiences and interactions into my daily practice. Are you involved in other volunteer positions other than those with CAPD/ACDP?

Yes! I am an Examiner with the RCDC and absolutely love being a part of. In the past I have volunteered with the AAPD as a consultant on the New Pediatric Dentist Committee and was on the Executive and the President of the BC Society of Pediatric Dentists. What is your message to Pediatric Dentists (Students, Graduates, Active in the Profession) about the value of volunteering (the value to individual dentists; the value to the profession)? Volunteering opens doors in all aspects of life and is a great way to help advance our profession. Why did you choose to specialize in pediatric dentistry? I think the path was chosen for me…I have a sibling with a special need and it felt just right. I’m humbled everyday by the opportunity to be a part of a child’s life and their oral health. Where did you do your training? Two U of M schools– University of Manitoba and University of Michigan. What do you enjoy the most about your job? My staff and the patients – they all make me laugh and laughter is the best medicine. Looking into a Crystal Ball, what innovations in the profession do you foresee (or dream about) in the next 30 years? To be able to magically numb without “the needle.” As you seem to lead a fairly busy life, what do you do to relax and unwind? I like to relax and unwind by building up a serious sweat and taking my mind elsewhere. I love to run, hike, spin and spend time being a Mom.

Dr. Brad Krusky Chair, LOC, 2018 Annual Conference in Banff, Alberta You volunteered to be the Chair of the CAPD/ACDP Banff Annual Conference in 2018. What is your connection with Banff? Banff is such a magical amazing place that I have always loved and am so excited to be able to share it with my colleagues from across Canada and the US. When I was a child we had a cabin in the mountains and I spent almost every weekend enjoying the outdoors skiing, hiking, biking and exploring. We spend so much time indoors, sitting at a chair every day and being able to get out in the mountains grounds me and gives me the energy I need to do what I do every day. It is an exceptional setting for what will be an inspirational continuing education and professional development experience. Why should members and other Pediatric Dentists travel to Banff for this event? There is no other place like Banff in the world. Our conference will give you time to enjoy the outdoors as well as the unbelievable Banff Springs Hotel which is legendary in the Rocky Mountains. We are bringing in top notch speakers and combining that with unique experiences and amazing scenery. The schedule will allow for additional CE hours, in addition to opportunities to explore the town and learn in a peaceful and beautiful setting.

Why is attendance at the Annual Conference (or other professional events) considered to be a career enhancing move? I have found that the connections I have made at CAPD Annual Conferences and other CE events have been invaluable in my career. Whether it is other dentists, supply companies or speakers, I have learned many new things and developed a network that I can rely on for many things between meetings. Why did you choose to specialize in pediatric dentistry? I have always loved kids and always loved a challenge. My goal is to develop lifelong strong and confident dental patients who learn skills in our office that allow them to conquer other fears outside of the dental chair, throughout their lives. I wanted to have a career where I could give back and help those in need, and this speciality has allowed me to do that through various volunteer dental experiences, both local and abroad.



Where did you do your training? I completed my DMD at Boston University & my pediatric residency and MSc at the University of Michigan. What do you enjoy the most about your job? What do you find most challenging? I enjoy the kids and the challenges associated with behavior management when working in a non-sedation environment. Developing relationships with our patients and their families and constantly improving in the way we communicate and understand each other. Interaction with my colleagues and finding ways to continually improve the service we are providing based on research, developments in materials, and equipment advancements. The most challenging is the business aspect – we are well-trained for clinical work however most of the practice and business management is literally on-the-job training… learning from our mistakes. Which we have! What is the most misunderstood aspect about Pediatric Dentistry? Several - We only handle special needs kids, patients need a referral, we are only here for the tough work and not continuing care, and we all sedate and utilize general anesthetic frequently. All are difficult misunderstandings which are sometimes insurmountable hurdles to overcome – both with patients and with referring general dentists. Are you involved in other volunteer positions other than those with CAPD/ACDP? Dentistry For All Director of Operations, former Executive Director Why do you volunteer? I have a skill set that is in demand and there are children all over the world and in our local communities who have no access to quality care. It is my privilege and responsibility to do what I can to heal the world (Tikum Olam)



What is your message to Pediatric Dentists (Students, Graduates, Active in the Profession) about the value of volunteering (the value to the individual; the value to the profession?) No one has time to volunteer. We are all busy – family, practice, hobbies…investments… on and on. But we must make the time. Make it part of your everyday routine right now. Schedule it in. We are privileged here in Canada but there are many right outside our door who cannot say that. Whether you volunteer as a dentist, donate funds or supplies, or help someone else to volunteer – I feel we are obligated to our profession to give back and share our expertise with those in need. I also feel that every pediatric program should provide opportunities for their residents to spend time in volunteer situations in their own communities as well as abroad.

Looking at a Crystal Ball, what innovations in the profession do you foresee (or dream about) in the next 30 years? Anti-caries medications (such as SDF, only better), vaccines, improvements in local anesthesia, material science, and caries removal. As you seem to lead a fairly busy life, what do you do to relax and unwind? Fresh air…the great outdoors. We live in the foothills West of the City of Calgary, in the gateway to the Rockies. We are minutes from Kananaskis Country, and a short drive to Canmore and Banff National Park. Walking in the woods is my favorite thing to do – whether it’s a day hike or cross country ski with my wife Danni, a multi-day backcountry guys hiking trip, or simply strolling in the woods in my back yard with my kids. I love what Mother Nature has to offer and the further away from a cell phone the better! I’m also a lover of local craft beer so that helps in relaxing situations quite often!

The Canadian Museum for Human Rights, Arctic Glacier Winter Park at the Forks and the Downtown Spirit bus. Those are three of the reasons National Geographic Travel named Winnipeg one of the best places to visit on earth on their list, Best Trips 2016. "Winnipeg is a whistle-stop on rail and road trips across Canada; polar bear and beluga whale enthusiasts know it as the starting point for their journey north to Churchill," Kimberley Lovato wrote in the article. "But this unpretentious prairie city proves itself worthy of more than a glance from a train window." The National Geographic profile provides information on the public transit system, including the Downtown Spirit, a free bus with three routes at the center of the city. Winnipeg's Alt Hotel is named one of the best places to stay while vacationing in Winnipeg, whether it be in the winter when there are lots of opportunities for ice skating and tobogganing or in the summertime, when farmers markets are a popular way to spend time.
