The general practitioner receives training to treat patients of all ages. This program will review the caries risk in pediatric patients and selecting restorations for the high caries risk patient population, review of restoration longevity and the need for use of stainless steel crowns. There will also be a review of other restorations such as zirconia crowns, the use of silver diamine fluoride and the use of Hall Crown techniques. Participants will review sedation rules and regulations, sedation routes (oral, intranasal, submucosal), pharmacology of the most commonly used sedatives in pediatric patients and the use of in-office general anesthesia. Participants will review clinical cases emphasizing radiographic findings that are normal. The goal is to recognize what is abnormal and the need for referral to specialist to address the pathology or abnormality.
⦁ Review of restorative options
⦁ Review current TSBDE rules regarding sedation
⦁ Normal vs Abnormal - When to refer
