Course Description
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.

Learning Objectives
At the end of the program, participants will be able to:

  • Identify children at risk in their practice and community and how to talk to families about their children's breathing
  • Understand how tethered oral tissues play a vital roll in shaping the airway for life
  • Understand nasal breathing - 24/7: Help children develop good nasal breathing habits for daytime and nighttime and surgical options from an airway perspective
