This lecture will explore, discuss and teach techniques that you will use as soon as you return to your office. You will have a new appreciation for the dental health of children and be equipped with the knowledge to educate your patients and parents about pediatric dentistry. This knowledge will protect children from further pain and suffering. Subsequently, you will enjoy the practice of dentistry for children and will see the profits of the office increase. This interactive lecture asks each person to bring with them a question regarding the treatment of children that they struggle with on a regular basis. Those who do not bring a question will be given one when they enter the room. Together we will develop the appropriate responses.
At the conclusion of this course, attendees will be able to:
- Learn to listen and know the appropriate responses to lower the parents and patients stress
- Develop a keen understanding of the verbal and non-verbal language of the child while staying connected
- Formulate a plan of action with the staff
