A Comprehensive Approach to Pediatric Dental Sedation: The Didactics

This year we are proud and honored to present a two-part (morning and afternoon) series of dental sedation options. The morning of didactics is specifically focused on sedation for pediatric dentistry. The afternoon will include five interactive, high-fidelity dental simulation scenarios. Each simulation scenario is specifically tailored to and designed from real-life medico-legal and office-based sedation events. This two-part offering, A Comprehensive Approach to Pediatric Dental Sedation: The Didactics and Dental Simulation requires registration for both sessions: the morning didactics and afternoon simulation. Alternatively, attendees may choose to register separately for only one of the sessions (morning or afternoon), enabling them the opportunity to cycle back into the weekend conference.
