Little ones (and their caregivers) need you to teach them new skills to breathe better. Join us to hear how pediatric dentists apply behavioral skills in their practice. World leaders in myofunctional therapy and otolaryngology will help you find new ways to address problems in your patients. There will be an opportunity to add your clinical experience to a special research effort to change how children are treated. 

At the end of this CE event, attendees will be able to:
1. Discuss myofunctional therapy with families and lead kids through some simple exercises that make a difference
2. Implement practice communication skills and teach kids about the importance of breathing through their nose
3. Describe how tethered tissues impact children’s’ health, what to do about them, and which professionals in your community to look for
4. Decide if they want to join a worldwide effort to gather clinical data to change how children’s breathing problems are identified and treated

The course is appropriate for people who are new to the topic, as well as those who have attended an ADA Children’s Airway event in the past.
