About the presentERS

POINTS OF LIGHT – THE AGE ONE DENTAL VISIT and

Presented by Dr. Kevin Hale, DDS, FPFS, FICD, FACD, FAAPD According to a recent University of Michigan study, 74% of dentists surveyed reported they were aware of the American Academy of Pediatric Dentists recommendation that children begin routine dental care by the age of one, or when their first tooth emerges. But the number of dentists who report seeing young children is far lower. Only 36% reported that they recommend their own patients begin routine care by age one. Points of Light is a collaborative children’s oral health project with the mission of improving all infants and children’s oral health by connecting them with a dental home by age one. As dental professionals, we know the greatest reason to begin early oral health intervention is prevention, and the age one dental visit provides the opportunity to prevent very young children from experiencing decay. Dr. Hale’s presentation will address the gap between awareness and implementation of the age one dental visit, and help you successfully Integrate infant oral health into your own practice.

EVALUATING, CONTROLLING AND PREVENTING PAIN Presented by Dr. John P. Gobetti, DDS, MS Course Overview Pain Control – preoperatively, intraoperatively, and postoperatively, is a major patient concern. This course will provide the dental professional with the scientific basis for practical, clinically applicable pain control for a variety of pain situations and patient variables. The pain control topics will cover evaluation, diagnosis, systemic considerations (medical history and drugs patients are taking), and specific therapy and techniques. A major emphasis will be prevention of pain via pharmacologic agents. This will be a half-day lecture course. Dr. Gobetti will discuss patient history and systemic considerations, pain evaluation, diagnosis pathophysiologic basis of pain, and general principles of pain control. There will be a discussion of specific therapies, techniques, and pharmacologic agents. The case examples will summarize the course topics. Questions from the audience are encouraged throughout the program, and time will be allotted at the end of each presentation for additional audience participation.
