  • Stay Safe, Stay Well: Managing Occupational Hazards in a Post-COVID World, Paul S.. Casamassimo, DDS, MS

    Contains 3 Component(s), Includes Credits

    Efforts to protect dental healthcare professionals from occupational exposure to pathogenic microorganisms continue to include the application of Standard- and Transmission-based Precautions. These remain the foundations for effective infection prevention in clinical settings. The current COVID-19 pandemic has necessitated a review and update of PPE and other infection control strategies that were used before emergence of SARS-CoV-2. This presentation will discuss recent science-based CDC recommendations and OSHA regulations as they relate to suggested PPE and air quality modifications in dental practices. Your practice has been hit not only by the COVID-19 pandemic, but also may have been touched by such disasters as fires, hurricanes, urban destruction and their resultant economic and social effects. Our understanding of the effects of these cumulative disasters may take years, but some immediate lessons learned, actions to prepare us for the next disaster, and how practices have adapted would benefit pediatric dentists now. Managing the next crisis effectively can lead to enhanced safety for patients, more trust and motivation from staff, and a quicker economic rebound for your practice. Special attention will be given to such COVID-related concerns as spatter and aerosols, increased exposure to surface disinfectants, chronic hypoxia from N-95 masks, and more. Members will leave the program equipped to take on current and future safety challenges with a risk-assessment checklist and a cornucopia of information. Learning Objectives: How to evaluate the occupational risks within their particular dental practices Which new occupational hazards in post-COVID dentistry pose the greatest risks What they can do today – and tomorrow – to manage occupational risks with effectiveness and efficiency

  • Rethinking ECC in the Era of Precision Medicine: Novel Clinical Insights Gained from Human Genome, Oral Microbiome, and Machine Learning Applications,

    Contains 3 Component(s), Includes Credits Recorded On: 06/03/2021

    Do you want to know the 4 elements that are changing our understanding of ECC? New knowledge from clinical studies, ‘omics, and machine learning bring inevitable paradigm shifts in our appreciation of children’s oral health and disease. Translating these new big data into simple yet precise algorithms is both the greatest challenge and the greatest opportunity. By attending this seminar, participants will become familiar with fundamental concepts, latest research, and integrative clinical, 'omics, and machine learning applications, aiming to better classify, predict, and manage ECC. Learning Objectives: Reflect on the strengths and limitations of the current case definition of ECC and appreciate the value of embracing a precise clinical disease classification system. Understand the relevance and specific contributions of emerging omics information (e.g., human genome, oral microbiome, and metabolome) for the diagnosis, classification, and management of ECC. Prepare for the advent of machine learning and other informatics applications that leverage clinical, behavioral, epidemiologic, and integrated omics information to inform clinical decision-making for the oral health care of children.

  • Pharmacology & Pain Control, Karen A. Baker, B.S.Pharm, MS

    Contains 3 Component(s), Includes Credits Recorded On: 06/03/2021

    The Opioid Crisis has fundamentally changed how we manage pain in children. Pediatric Dentists face escalating challenges in patient as well as drug therapy complexity. We will examine the wide array of alternative and traditional analgesics along with new ways of combining agents to enhance patient tolerance and efficacy. Strategies for educating and informing patients and parents about the risks and benefits of CBD, kratom, THC, NSAIDs, APAP, and Opioids will be discussed. Tools that enhance patient compliance and safety will be provided along with details about drug interactions important in dental pain control. Learning Objectives: discuss the FDA warning against prescribing codeine and tramadol for children under 12 years of age, compare and contrast the AAPD position on pediatric pain control with that of the American Academy of Pediatrics, list the most effective pediatric dosage regimens for NSAIDs, acetaminophen, hydroxyzine, and hydrocodone.

  • Trauma Guideline Update, Anne C. O'Connell, BABDentScMS

    Contains 3 Component(s), Includes Credits

    Traumatic dental injuries occur frequently in children and adolescents, and management following a traumatic dental injury can be difficult for the patient and the dental team. The International Association of Dental Traumatology (IADT) updated the guidelines on management of acute traumatic dental injuries in 2020. These revised guidelines are based on best available evidence and adherence to them are intended to maximise the probability of a favourable outcome following a dental injury. This presentation will review the updated guidelines, explain the rationale for, and refer to the evidence for statements and decisions made in this 2020 revision. Controversial areas will be addressed and discussed. The structure of the guidelines and their use as reference will be explained. The goal is to update the clinician on the knowledge base on the emergency management of traumatic dental injuries and to demonstrate the format of the guidelines. Pediatric dentists have an important role to play in the appropriate management of the child patient who presents with a traumatic dental injury. Learning Objectives: understand the structure of the guidelines be knowledgeable in the healing potential of oral tissue following injury understand the scientific rationale for the management of acute dental injury in primary and permanent dentitions
