California Society of Pediatric Dentistry Monitored Anesthetic Care in Pediatric Dentistry Online Course Online (925) 286-4187 http://www.cspd.org/oce A classical presentation by an icon of pediatric dentistry and of special interest to those who are interested in the current excellent level of pediatric dentistry in Hong Kong. Asian guidelines are sometimes different from US guidelines. Infants and young children with gross oral diseases (including nursing caries and traumatic injuries to the teeth and oralfacial tissues) present difficult problems for the child, the parent and dentist alike. Similarly, patients who are dental phobias and are in severe pain that cannot be easily controlled by local anesthetic alone will need special attention. Patients who suffer from major trauma and who require extensive surgical and root canal treatment will also need special behavior management techniques in order that the treatment may be carried out successfully. In addition, persons with minor physical handicaps, mental disabilities and severe dental phobias will require special behavior management techniques. The use of oral premedication agents, trans-cutaneous injection of a variety of medications as well as inhalation modalities using nitrous oxide will be discussed along with treatment under general anesthesia in the Hospital Operating Theatre. While the severely disabled and medically compromised patients would best be treated in the Hospital using general anesthesia, the majority of otherwise relatively healthy infants, young children and adults and minimally handicapped persons can now be treated in the properly equipped dental office under sedation. The presentation will show many clinical cases of various procedures including pulpectomy, stainless steel crown fabrication, endodontic procedures followed by pedodontics strip crowns, and surgery procedures for the removal of supernumerary teeth with some cases lasting three hours for total mouth rehabilitation. The net income per case can be appreciable. The lecture will be supplemented with a short video on how the procedures are carried out in our clinic. $70.00 2.5 View Details
California Society of Pediatric Dentistry The Making of a Tooth: From Genes to Clinical Care Online Course Online (925) 286-4187 http://www.cspd.org/oce Clinicians are faced daily with the challenges of diagnosing and treating defects in the dentitions.

California Society of Pediatric Dentistry Less is More: Minimally Invasive Treatment Options for Enamel Caries and Defects Online Course Online (925) 286-4187 http://www.cspd.org/oce Unsightly congenital enamel defects and acquired white spot lesions are undesirable for many patients. They have historically been treated with invasive and expensive resin bonding and veneers. These lesions may be a source of embarrassment for some patients or may progress to cavitation (particularly post-orthodontic white spot lesions). In this course, the presenter will review three simple and painless options to manage enamel defects: MI Paste, Icon Resin Infiltration, and Etch/Bleach/Seal. These treatments can improve or even completely reverse the appearance while preserving tooth structure and repairing the patient’s natural enamel. Deciding when to surgically repair incipient interproximal lesions can be a challenge for practitioners. This course will review two non-invasive treatment options to consider in lieu of a “watch and wait” approach. Resin infiltration and silver diamine fluoride are alternatives to the surgical management of non-cavitated interproximal lesions which help preserve sound tooth structure. $105.00 3.0 View Details

California Society of Pediatric Dentistry Tooth Decay and Liver Decay: The Nexus of Physicians and Dentists Online Course Online (925) 286-4187 http://www.cspd.org/oce “Mountain Dew Mouth” has been a scourge for dentists for decades. But there is a new disease that is affecting even more people: Mountain Dew Liver. Even though non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) wasn’t discovered until 1980, up to 1/3 of Americans suffer from it including children: 13% of autopsies in children and 38% of obese children show NAFLD. The rates of tooth decay and NAFLD have been increasing with excessive sugar consumption contributing to both. Dietary sugar is composed of one molecule each of glucose and fructose with fracture being the primary driver of both diseases. While fructose doesn’t contribute to the mouth biofilm, it is metabolized by the oral bacteria into lactic acid which readily diffuses through the biofilm and into the tooth. Fructose is then turned into fat in the liver mitochondria which drives NAFLD which has now surpassed alcohol as the leading cause of liver transplantation. Children are the most susceptible to both diseases because they are the biggest sugar consumers. Physicians and dentist must be united in supporting public health measures to reduce chronic disease which includes diet modification. $70.00 3.0 View Details
