Revolutionizing Pediatric Dental Care for Lifelong Health

Rise and Shine, Little One!

Are you a dentist, hygienist, or myofunctional therapist looking to make a significant impact on the health and well-being of children? Do you want to stand out in your community and grow your practice by addressing sleep and breathing disorders in kids? If so, this one-day seminar is tailor-made for you!

In this course, we will revolutionize our approach to pediatric dental care, starting from birth to commencement. We will delve into the signs and symptoms in newborns that can predict their future health or potential disaster, and explore proactive strategies to address these issues. We will also uncover the reasons behind the recommendation for the under-one-year exam by leading organizations like the ADA, APDA, AMA, and AAPD, and discuss how to conduct a comprehensive infant oral health exam.

We will provide a bonus module on screening tools, and how to identify parent-reported symptoms and physical signs of airway disorders in children for new learners, team members, or as a refresher!

We will emphasize the importance of involving children in their own treatment strategies, by teaching them the root cause of several systemic and oral health issues. Including : sleep and breathing disorders. The Children’s Hands-On Learning Lab™ is a mentored relationship between the provider and the child and focuses on creating indelible science learning experiences at each and every visit for each and every child. Several experiences will be provided.

Additionally, we will examine the role of allergies in chronic stuffy noses and discover preventive and treatment options for pediatric allergies that contribute to mouth breathing.

Empowering children to take charge of their own health is crucial, which is why we will discuss innovative strategies to build their buy-in and involvement in their own solutions. Furthermore, we will explore ways to create effective airway-centric health circles within your community of health professionals.

Imagine the satisfaction of knowing that you played a pivotal role in the health and well-being of countless children who are now grateful adults. It's time for you to shine!

  • Explore language to unpack the complexity Sleep Apnea’s severity metrics: AHI, RDI, REI, the many definitions of hypopnea, obstructive vs central sleep apnea.

  • Recognize the nuanced language that goes into the discussion of individual risk associated with Sleep Apnea and know how to collaboratively apply this language with your patients.

  • Comprehend the complexity of the underlying pathophysiology of Sleep Apnea, by breaking apart the “many moving parts” of obstructive sleep apnea and central sleep apnea and seeing how they relate to one another.

  • Implement a patient-centered approach to understand and clarify a patient's sleep-wake complaints by establishing their narrative.

  • Comprehend and critically evaluate the many different testing options for the diagnosis of Sleep Apnea,

  • Comprehend and critically evaluate the many different options available for the treatment of Sleep Apnea, including a discussion of emerging options, like INSPIRE and EXCITE.

  • Comprehend and clinically integrate basic science concepts of the regulation of sleep-wake signaling (an introduction to the Two Process Model). This objective will include a practical working knowledge of the complexity sensemaking tool: The Circadian Rhythmo-Wheel.

  • Identify and triage common complications of therapy, including positive airway pressure toxicity, Willis Ekbom Disease (“restless legs syndrome”) and treatment emergent central sleep apnea.

  • Apply the patient-centered collaborative complexity sensemaking tool, the "Five Finger Approach," to unpack nonspecific sleep-wake complaints.

  • Deploy strategies of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy for Insomnia (CBTi), such as proactive wind-down time, sleep restriction therapy, stimulus control therapy, and chronotherapy.

Join us on this transformative journey to enhance your knowledge, skills, and impact on the lives of children. Together, we can make a lasting difference in their health and well-being
