Program Purpose / Objectives

Bites, Bytes and Bites

This program will span a variety of topics, ranging from pediatric preventive and interceptive orthodontics (Bite #1), to issues with parental demands based on their internet "education" (Byte #2) to nutritional guidance for a healthier life (Bite #3). The final section will include a session about no bites, namely managing the behavior in the pediatric dental setting. The specifics on the courses are:

Pediatric Preventive and Interceptive Orthodontics:
This course will include a discussion of space maintenance, oral habits and simple corrections of crossbites and other developmental issues. It is not intended as a comprehensive orthodontic program, but will emphasize pediatric procedures.

I was on the Internet Last Night
With this particular issue becoming greater all the time, the focus here will be on how it has arisen, grown and become, at times, a headache for practitioners. Specific strategies for dealing with various issues will be included.

Food as Your Farm-acy
Daily food choices create the foundation for your overall health and ultimately the health of your practice. We will cover eating plans, food strategies, hidden influences, sugar awareness and current topics. We will look at the food we can eat (or not) and identify action steps, both large and small, that add up a lifetime of well-being.

Getting Past "Uh-oh," "No" and Helicopters
Behavior management in the pediatric dental setting is key to success in both the technical and the social aspects of dental care for children. This session will include videos to illustrate points about managing oneself, the child and the parents.
Conference Sessions generally take place on days at sea (as itinerary allows), giving you plenty of time to enjoy your meals, evenings and ports of call with your companion, family and friends.
