This second ADA Children’s Airway Conference will guide the general, pediatric and orthodontic practitioner in the significance of Sleep-Related Breathing Disorders (SRBD) in children and how the ADA policy statement on "The Role of Dentistry in the Treatment of Sleep-Related Breathing Disorders" directs them to address the issue. By expanding their provider scope beyond the current concentration on dental disease, dentists will see their role in children's overall health. With the growing awareness of airway issues in the profession and the public, getting a handle on this service is critical toward modernizing the dental practice in the 21st century. Currently, practitioners that are already involved in this arena are experiencing a whole new level of practice productively and satisfaction.
Please note: This is not a repeat course of the first ADA Children's Airway Conference. The first conference is not a prerequisite for registering for this conference.
At the end of the program, participants will be able to:
- Recognize the significance of the ADA Policy statement as it relates to daily practice and expanding your service mix
- Define the etiology of Sleep-Related Breathing Disorders in children
- Recognize, screen, and triage pediatric patients for appropriate airway-related dental, medical and orthodontic treatment.
- Describe the many approaches to solving the anatomic, physiologic and behavioral issues that are often co-morbid with SRBD
- Identify critical verbal and behavioral skills to help families accept needed therapy
