King’s College London introduces its Expanding Your Practice: Everyday Paediatric Dentistry Made Easy workshop, focusing on a minimal intervention approach to paediatric dentistry.
In recent years, the field of paediatric dentistry has seen a surge of interest in minimal intervention dentistry (MID). LonDEC, King’s College London, as part of DentAlliance is proud to present an exclusive workshop designed to empower general dental practitioners with the knowledge and skills to elevate their practice in paediatric dentistry.
DentAlliance brings together four prestigious dental schools, each contributing their world-leading expertise to enrich professional practice in dentistry. Collectively, we offer a program that provides global insights into contemporary trends in clinical dentistry and future perspectives.
A new horizon in paediatric dentistry
Contemporary global trends in clinical dentistry and future perspectives is the focus of a CPD training program offered by LonDEC and DentAlliance. This program represents a unique collaboration between King’s College London’s Faculty of Dentistry, Oral & Craniofacial Sciences, and three other esteemed dental schools from the United States, Australia and Singapore.
Unveiling the program
This hands-on course is designed to help GDPs carry our improved paediatric dentistry. It features dynamic content, practical case studies, hands-on training and clinical insights from Mr Sanjeev Sood. He is an honorary consultant in paediatric dentistry at King’s College London.
Participants can expect to explore the latest trends and innovations in paediatric dentistry. They will also engage in topical discussions and participate in hands-on activity.
Empowering paediatric dentistry through MID
In recent years, minimal intervention dentistry (MID) has garnered significant interest within the realm of paediatric dentistry. As part of the workshop delegates will acquire essential techniques to facilitate a child’s preventive dental visit as early as one year of age.
Moreover, participants will be provided with an in-depth introduction to essential oral care techniques. This includes the application of silver diamine fluoride (SDF). Also, the placement of stainless steel crowns to manage caries in young children without the need for local anaesthesia.
In scenarios where local anaesthesia is necessary, Dr Sood will demonstrate the use of computer-assisted delivery, featuring The Wand single tooth anaesthesia machine. Additionally, delegates will gain valuable insights into behaviour management strategies aimed at minimising discomfort for both anxious children and adult patients.
Aims and objectives:
Young child’s 1st dental visit
Learn how to facilitate a young child’s first dental visit, including clinical tips on conducting examinations, performing caries risk assessments and providing anticipatory guidance.
Silver diamine fluoride
Gain an in-depth understanding of silver diamine fluoride, including indications and case selection, the clinical procedure, and patient counselling before the procedure.
