This full-day course will provide the pediatric dentist an update on a wide variety of areas of pediatric medicine. Each lecture will provide a medical review of the more common disorders and diseases the pediatric dentist might encounter in clinical practice, followed by a discussion of the latest advances in management. For some of the topics there will be a specific emphasis on dental management. The lecture format followed by questions and answers affords participants an opportunity for dialogue between the lecturer and the audience.
