Practical Update on Prevention

Michael Ignelzi, D.D.S., Ph.D. is an adjunct associate professor in the department of pediatric dentistry  at the University of North Carolina School of Dentistry. He maintains a private practice in Greensboro, N.C.

This course features timely and practical information for any practice that treats children. This course will focus on prevention—the cornerstone of what we do as dental professionals. The challenge for the ethical practitioner is to identify new products and technologies that will truly benefit his or her patients, while avoiding products and technologies that are marketed effectively but have little to no scientific basis. This course features practical information, based on sound science, so that you can provide the best care to your patients.

Learning Objectives:

  • Utilize the most effective methods to prevent oral disease
  • Offer sound advice regarding prevention to your patients and their parents
  •  Incorporate contemporary caries risk assessment into your practice

Attendees will identify signs and symptoms of obstructive sleep apnea in young children as well as understand the indications for placement of dental implants in children.

Learning Objectives:

  • Understand the treatment algorithm for managing young patients with craniofacial anomalies
  • Diagnose and manage temporomandibular joint disorders in children
