As times change, so do children and parents. New techniques for dealing with both in the pediatric dental setting are crucial to the success of any practice. Much emphasis has been placed on sedation, but there remain many "tried and true" techniques that can propel a practitioner to greater success and satisfaction. Typically considered the greatest challenge, parents will be emphasized in this course to develop means to not only make them "not the problem," but actually have them become your best means marketing as well as your entertainment. This is a "must" course for new practitioners and a happy reminder to those with more experience.

Saturday, May 26
1:30 – 3 PM
Sarat Thikkurissy, D.D.S., M.S.

The advent and success of the Age 1 Dental Home over the past two decades has immeasur- ably impacted the practice of pediatric dentistry. Diagnosing caries at earlier ages has led to the discussion/debate as to optimal management strategies for caries in the young child. Pharma- cologic management, including both general anesthesia and procedural sedation, are among this armamentarium. This presentation will look at the physi- ologic behavioral and treatment variables that impact procedural sedation in the young child. The presentation will examine the evolution of health conditions associated with early childhood, as well as societal factors that drive how procedural sedation is utilized.

Upon completion of this course, attendees will be able to:

• Distinguish physiologic issues unique to procedural sedation of the young child.
• Incorporate risk management strategies into their practice.
• Place procedural sedation on the continuum of treatment in early childhood.
