Canadian Academy of Pediatric Dentistry Annual Meeting

All Day Event

The Canadian Academy of Pediatric Dentistry (CAPD/ACDP) has announced the theme for the Annual Meeting to be held in Montreal on September 12-13, 2014. Dr. Duy-Dat Vu, Director of the Graduate Program in Pediatric Dentistry at CHU Sainte-Justine and Chair of the Annual Meeting noted that Pediatric Dentists explained that "We wanted to do something different at this event—something aside from the usual bread and butter issues that affect Pediatric Dentists." Vu, along with the local organizing committee in Montreal chose the theme of "uncharted" territories to open up new horizons and enhance awareness about those not-so-obvious topics that pediatric dentists confront on a daily basis.
Using the expertise of the Quebec dental and medical community, the organizing committee has put together an impressive list of topics and speakers, with all lectures being presented in English.
Dr. Robert Dorion, director of the Forensic Dentistry Program at McGill University will open the educational sessions by exploring the evolution of forensic dentistry. Using his front-line experience during the Lac-Mégantic disaster, Dorion will discuss the proper handling, examination and evaluation of dental evidence in his talk on The Evolution of Forensic Dentistry: Fact and Fiction.
Continuing with the discussion of legal issues, Dr. Laurel Chauvin-Kimoff, program director of the Child Protection Program at McGill University will address the topic of Child Abuse in the Dental Office: Recognition and Response, as it relates to physical abuse, sexual abuse, bite marks and dental neglect.
Dr. Sam Daniel made medical history in 2005 when he treated a 39 week old child with Botox to address a situation that had the child drowning in his own saliva. Daniel, an otolaryngologist and founder and director of the Saliva Management Clinic at McGill University will examine Sialorrhea: Management and Challenges.
Dr. Alain Moreau, head of the Muscular Genetics Laboratory at the University of Montreal will be speaking about Orthodontic Disorders and Idiopathic Scoliosis: What do we know and where are we going?
Marie-Josée Tessier, an occupational therapist, is director of the Dysphagia and Occupational Therapy Clinic in Longueuil, Quebec . She will provide a progress report on the subjects of Dysphagia and Gerd Management and how this impacts Pediatric Dentists.
In the final session, Dr. Nelly Huynh, a member of the research committee of the American Academy of Dental Sleep Medicine and Dr. Andrée Montpetit, a specialist in Obstructive Sleep Apnea will discuss new research in the areas of Sleep Apnea and Bruxism.
CAPD’s Annual Meeting will take place at The Montreal Marriott Chateau Champlain Hotel, which is close to both the downtown area of the city that includes McGill University and the University of Montreal, and Old Montreal with its historic buildings, boutique shops and restaurants. The full Meeting program includes educational sessions, Graduate Student oral presentations, a Welcome Dinner Cruise on September 12 and the President’s Dinner on September 13.
