Dr. Jade Miller

AAPD President

Welcome to AAPD 2017

It’s a pleasure to invite you, your office staff and family to AAPD 2017 near Washington, D.C. All of the planning efforts have paid off

and we’re in a great position to have one of the best meetings ever. The scientific program takes place at the Gaylord National Resort and

Convention Center allowing most of us to be all under one roof in a state-of-the-art facility located on the Potomac River. Additional hotels

are conveniently located across the street at the National Harbor. Come celebrate the 70th Annual Session of the American Academy of

Pediatric Dentistry!

FedExField? Anyone? Don’t miss exclusive access to be on a NFL football field, in the locker room and throughout the stadium. The

AAPD Welcome Reception has become the hallmark event in pediatric dentistry. From the bands, games, other entertainment and food, it’s

sure to be one of the best. I’d like to thank Sunstar Americas, Inc., for their continued support of the event.

The scientific program promises to deliver the cutting-edge topics you’ve come to expect at the Annual Session. The Preconference

Course on Thursday, is Frenums to Pacifiers, Pearls for Treating Toddlers. The opening keynote features Mel Robbins, best known for her

TEDx Talk on “How to Stop Screwing Yourself Over” and her book on the brain and productivity, “Stop Saying You’re Fine,” is a business

bestseller.

The celebration at the Presidents’ Farewell Dinner promises to be an amazing affair at the Smithsonian National Museum of Natural

History! Be sure to make plans to stay for this wonderful event at the most-visited museum in North America!

Make the most of your visit at National Harbor by exploring the multitude of shops and restaurants, or take in a movie in the harbor

at the plaza. Want to go into D.C.? Take a water taxi to the National Mall, Alexandria or the Nationals Stadium. A shuttle at the Harbor is

available to take guests to the Tanger Outlet Malls or the new MGM Resort and Casino. Fun is sure to be had by all who attend!

I would like to personally thank the local arrangements: Shari Kohn, Mitali Patel and Anu Tate. Their work to make this a spectacular

event is appreciated by me, and will be noticed by everyone.

See you in D.C.!

Drs. Shari Kohn and Mitali Patel

AAPD 2017 Local Arrangements Co-Chairs

Welcome to Washington, D.C.!

Welcome to AAPD 2017 near Washington, D.C.! Washington is a dynamic city known for not only its rich history and monuments but

also its growing restaurant scene and beautiful location right on the Potomac River.

This year, we will all fit under one roof at the Gaylord National Hotel and Convention Center located right on the banks of the Potomac

River, footsteps away from the Capital Waterfront. The National Harbor is home to the Capital Wheel, which takes you 180 feet high with

breathtaking views of the Capitol, White House and the National Mall. Take a boat ride down the Potomac River, getting a close-up view

of the monuments including the Washington Monument, Lincoln Memorial and Jefferson Memorial. Shuttles will be available to visit the

National Mall and experience the history of our wonderful city.

On behalf of the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry and the Local Arrangements Committee, we are honored to be your hosts

for an exciting and educational 70th Annual Session. The Scientific Program Committee has worked diligently to develop a program that

incorporates local talent from some of the leading medical and dental practitioners and researchers in the country. As always, there will be

a strong educational balance encompassing pulp therapy, caries management, orthodontics to practice management, staff enrichment and

outliers we see but don’t often discuss, such as; abuse, neglect, street drugs and overdose. We guarantee that there is something for everyone.

We wanted to thank Dr. John Rutkauskas, and the AAPD staff of Tonya Almond, Kristi Casale, Jessica Parra and Colleen Bingle for helping

design great events throughout the city. If you have not been to Washington, D.C., or if you are returning, you and your family are guaranteed

an excellent experience! Mark your calendars now and join us at the AAPD Annual Session in Washington, D.C., May 25 – 28, 2017.

With the AAPD’s successful messaging on the Age 1 Dental Home, pediatric dentists are confronting issues of toddler dental care daily;

in fact it takes up a major portion of the pediatric dentist’s morning office hours. Providing oral health care to this cohort requires a special

knowledge of diagnostic factors and treatment techniques not inherent in the treatment of the rest of our patients.

The presentation explores the interaction of pediatric dentistry

and Speech Language Pathology (SLP) with an attempt to clarify

the confusing picture of speech disorders from the pediatric dental

perspective and decode some of the speech-language specific

terminology. A discussion of common dental malocclusions and

interventions for their correction on speech will be discussed. The

responsibilities of a pediatric dentist with regards to speech disorders,

behavioral rules and aids for interacting with, and counseling,

PD

PD

children with speech disorders will be presented. How to interact

with and work cooperatively with speech language pathologists in

the interest of mutual patients/clients will be discussed.

The session will also outline the normal development of language

and speech. Particular emphasis will be placed on the different

subsystems of speech production and the associated anatomy.

Methods for the assessment of speech production will be described.

Coping with Medicaid and

Hearing the term government audit is sufficient to strike fear in

the heart of any practicing pediatric dentist. However, it is important

to understand the basis for and scope of government auditing

authority in two critical areas: dental insurance for children of

low-income families (Medicaid) and patient privacy (the Health

Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996, known as

HIPAA). Legal and government experts will examine the legal and

regulatory framework within the Medicaid and HIPAA laws and

steps that a pediatric dental practice should take to ensure compliance

with these laws. This presentation will discuss various types of

audits, the auditing process, and steps a provider should take during

an audit. Finally, recommendations will be made for obtaining

a positive audit outcome.

Jessica Meeske practices in south central Nebraska where she

is a partner with Pediatric Dental Specialists of Greater Nebraska.

Local anesthetics and their

associated vasoconstrictors have

had a long history of safety

and efficacy in dental practice.

However, pediatric dental patients

are especially vulnerable

to overdose reactions with this

group of drugs, and it is critical

that the clinician does not exceed maximum recommended

dosages of these agents. These important dosage calculations and

an introduction to “The Rule of 25” will be discussed. Kovanzaze,

plus 0.05 percent oxymetazoline received FDA approval on June

29, 2016, to provide maxillary anesthesia for a single restorative

procedure from 2nd premolar to 2nd premolar, and in all primary

teeth without the need for a conventional injection in patients

weighing at least 88 pounds. This appears to be a useful addition

the to pediatric dentist’s local anesthesia armamentarium

in fearful children, and evidence-based research performed by

the speaker and others supporting the efficacy and safety of this

formulation will be highlighted. Finally, evidence-based research

concerning the ability of Oraverse (phentolamine mesylate) to

safely accelerate the recovery of soft tissue numbness in adults and

children as young as three years of age will also be presented.

It comes as no surprise to the pediatric dentist that sedationrelated

morbidity and mortality is a frequent topic of discussion

in today’s media. Regardless, it is of the utmost importance to

identify high risk patients and ensure an adequate emergency

armamentarium is in the office. In the wake of such events, state

boards may opt to increase monitoring requirements as well.

This lecture will review ADA and AAPD Guidelines, including

end-tidal capnography; novel oxygen and nitrous oxide delivery

systems; and emergency armamentarium, including reversal agent

dosing and EpiPen ® auto injector alternatives.

Dental caries, the most prevalent

disease in humans, affects

97 percent of the population in

their lifetime. Yet, dental professionals

are still primarily using

>100 year-old technologies to

assess and manage this most

prevalent infectious disease.

Recently, new ways of assessing and dealing with dental caries as

an infectious disease have been proposed, and new products have

been introduced. It is anticipated that the progression of this most

significant technological development in dentistry will do more to

change the way we practice than anything in recent decades. This

course will review the science behind these developments, and

will introduce clinically relevant information to practitioners to

prepare them to understand related new information as it is introduced

to the professionals and consumers. In addition, application

of these techniques to early intervention protocols including the

use of silver diamine fluoride and other agents to mitigate the

impact of caries will be described.

A brush-on liquid called Silver Diamine Fluoride (SDF) has

the potential to become the first drug for treating dental caries. It

is safe, inexpensive, and simple to apply. Surveys in the U.S. show

high levels of patient / parent preference compared to techniques

requiring local anesthetic. With reapplication, SDF stops 80-90

percent of cavities, but not right away, and there are not clear indicators

of which lesions will keep growing. Clinicians need to be

prepared for the black staining and the 10-20 percent of lesions

that will keep growing. This session will describe breakthroughs in

the science and practice of arresting caries with SDF to interrupt

the cycle of disease and restoration that occurs when the underlying

problem is out of control. Early adoption has occurred in

treatment of pre-cooperative children, patients with special health

care needs, and older adults, but this is relevant to all patients

with caries. Areas of focus include: clinical protocols, economics,

integration with other caries management techniques, incorporation

into restorative practice, and the evidence from clinical

trials and mechanistic studies. Drs. Horst and Berg aim to build a

comprehensive understanding of how the use of SDF to treat and

prevent dental caries interfaces with contemporary dentistry.

Joel Berg is dean and professor of pediatric dentistry at the

University of Washington School of Dentistry as well as Lloyd

and Kay Chapman Chair for Oral Health. He is a diplomate of

the American Board of Pediatric Dentistry and is a past president

of the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry.

Jeremy Horst is a practicing biochemist and practicing pediatric

dentist. He holds a fellowship in the DeRisi and Featherstone

labs at UC San Francisco, where he uses cutting edge genetics

and imaging technologies to study the mechanisms of success and

failure for treatment of dental caries with Silver Diamine Fluoride

(SDF). Horst is presently carrying out five clinical studies incorporating

medical interventions for dental caries with microbiome

analyses. He has published more than 30 papers and book chapters

on genetics and orofacial diseases. His research efforts earned

an NIH/NIDCR NRSA, the International Hatton Award, a Warren

Magnuson Fellowship, and the Ralph McDonald Award. In

his practice he focuses on maximally effective, minimally invasive

techniques to stop dental caries and create an easy relationship to

dentistry for children and people with special health care needs.

Horst recently chaired a committee that establish Guidelines on

the use of SDF for caries, and has given over 40 courses on this

topic since the material became available May 2015.

Sedating the Youngest Pediatric Dental Patients

Paloma Perez, D.D.S.

We are increasingly seeing younger patients. These

children are the real challenge within our specialty and

whether special needs are present or not, effective communication

is an issue. Sedations are needed and must

be provided wisely, safely and effectively. The pediatric

dentist must master these techniques.

300. String of Pearls

Sunday, May 28

8:30 – 11:30 AM

Always popular, the format of this session allows a wide variety

of ideas and concepts to be strung together in a brief amount of

time. The informal atmosphere of the presentation encourages

idea sharing and all who wish to contribute are encouraged to do

so. The following people are presenting their pearls of wisdom

with us at this year’s meeting.

8:30 – 8:45 AM

Reviewing a Comprehensive Evaluation Protocol

for Infants With Lip and Tongue Frenum

Restriction for Laser Frenotomy

Martin Kaplan, D.M.D.

This presentation will review an objective check list to

assist in the evaluation and decision process for deciding

to treat a frenum of an infant with a breastfeeding or

bottle feeding problem.

8:45 – 9 AM

Achieving Painless Injections without Topical

Anesthesia

Warren Brill, D.M.D., M.S. (HYG), F.A.A.P.D.

We are classically taught to use a topical anesthetic

agent applied to a dry surface for two minutes before

injection. This technique can be uncomfortable for the

child, as the agent can drip from the site to the tongue

or pharynx, even when cotton 2x2s or suction is used to

prevent this. In addition, it is difficult, if not impossible

to determine the dosage of topical agent administered,

increasing the chance of untoward effects, such as methemoglobinemia.

The technique to be demonstrated

uses a device that desensitizes the soft tissues so that the

child feels little or no discomfort. It is effective on both

free gingiva at the cheek side of the teeth, but also on

the attached gingiva of the lingual and palate.

9 – 9:15 AM

Clinical Antimicrobial Treatment and Bacterial

Testing

Ian Marion, D.D.S., M.S.

This presentation will overview a technique to perform

chair-side bacterial testing to guide preventative therapies.

It will also overview techniques and applications of

preventative and caries arresting medications.

PD

DT

9:15 – 9:30 AM

Increasing Appointment Compliance in the Age

of Technology: An Evaluation of Appointment

Reminder Systems Effectiveness in Private and

Public Health Settings

David Avenetti, D.D.S., M.S.D., M.P.H.

Missed dental appointments lead to delayed receipt of

care for patients and an inefficient use of resources.

With modern technology, there are more appointment

reminder systems available for patients. This presentation

will review the effectiveness of various appointment

reminders and demographic preferences in the age of

expanded technology. This presentation is relevant for

both private practice and public health settings.

9:30 – 9:45 AM

Zirconia Crowns for Restoration of Severely

Carious Primary Anterior Teeth: Overcoming

Esthetic Challenges

Ahmed Rady, B.D.S., M.Sc., Ph.D.

The esthetic concern of clinical decision to restore

severely carious primary anterior teeth in children has

been a challenge to pediatric dentists. This presentation

will highlight success and failure of many challenging

clinical cases of restoring such teeth using different

modalities such as intra-canal fiber posts and zirconium

crowns.

9:45 – 10 AM

The Timing and Treatment Methods Needed to

Preserve Ectopically Erupting Permanent Teeth

in the Transitional Dentition

Keaton Howe, D.D.S., M.S.

This clinically-based seminar will discuss new trends

in the ever-changing growth and development of

developing permanent teeth and apply this to the early

recognition of ectopic eruption in the transitional dentition.

Clinical treatment strategies will illustrate how to

preserve the position and function of ectopically erupting

permanent teeth for their entirety.

10 – 10:15 AM

Mixed Dentition Molar Repositioned: A Simplified

New Appliance to Regain Space and

Upright Mandibular First Molar

Else Echeverri, D.D.S.

Regaining space loss of a permanent mandibular first

molar that has inclined and mesially migrated is difficult

in the mixed dentition due to anchorage. This system

presents a straight forward alternative with a minimum

amount of hardware requirements that allows the correction

without extruding while distalizing the molar.

SUNDAY

10:15 – 10:30 AM

The Role of the Pediatric Dentist in Obstructive

Sleep Apnea

Cristina Perez, D.D.S., M.S.

Obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) is an under diagnosed

condition in our children. OSA may have many implications

in children’s health that vary from low school

performance, increased incidence for accidents to malocclusions

and bruxism. Information is needed on how

a pediatric dentist can identify red flags that may help to

diagnose OSA.

10:30 – 10:45 AM

Pulp Fiction: Top Ten Myths of the Primary

Dental Pulp

Jarod Johnson, D.D.S.

Formocresol has been the gold standard for many years

in vital pulpal therapy in the primary dentition. Recent

developments in materials led by MTA, challenge old

standards. This presentation reviews common misconceptions

about the primary dental pulp as it relates to

caries and trauma for pulpal therapy.

10:45 – 11 AM

Resin Infiltration for Smooth Surface Early

Caries Management in Pediatric Dentistry

Aikaterini Kavvadia, M.Dent.Sc., Ph.D.

Resin infiltration is a minimal invasive technique used

successfully in pediatric dentistry to manage buccal and

interproximal smooth surface incipient carious lesions.

Low viscosity resin permeates the decalcified porous

enamel and fortifies it against the acid dissolution thus

haltering the progression of the lesion as well as improving

the esthetics.

11 – 11:15 AM

Captivating Production on Your Schedule

Natalie Burnside, R.D.H.

Tips on using your staff and patients to captivate

production already on your schedule throughout your

day. We will discuss what staff members are needed,

including the doctor, and what their roles will be to accomplish

this goal.

11:15 – 11:30 AM

Before You Jump to General Anesthesia with

Children Who Have ADHD

Robert Jones, D.D.S., Ph.D.

This presentation will provide practitioners with an

overview of ADHD medications and examine how

children have genetic differences that make some medications

counter productive to alleviate symptoms. For

pediatric dentists, the pearl is that some children are just

one appropriate medication away from better behavior.

310. A Snapshot of Street and

Prescription Drug Abuse and the

Impact on Your Dental Practice

Sunday, May 28

8:30 – 11:30 AM

Harold Crossley, D.D.S., M.S., Ph.D.

What questions should I be asking my

patients to avoid drug interactions with street

drugs? What is the impact on my practice of the

recent resolutions, approved by the American

Dental Association, for providing dental care

for patients who are and/or have been chemically

dependent? What are some of the oral

crossley

manifestations of street drug abuse? Do I have

to take any precautions with the dental patient who is under the

influence? The dental team is in a unique position providing

dental care to a patient population that may be regular users or

experimenting with mood altering drugs. This graphic presentation

will help you identify and manage the substance abusing

patient. Discussion includes the signs and symptoms of commonly

abused prescription and illicit drugs.

With the AAPD’s successful messaging on the Age 1 Dental

Home, pediatric dentists are confronting issues of toddler dental care

daily; in fact it takes up major portion of the pediatric dentist’s morning

office hours. Providing oral health care to this cohort requires a

special knowledge of diagnostic factors and treatment techniques not

inherent in the treatment of the rest of our patients.

Learning Objectives

• Review the clinical importance of growth and development in

the comprehensive evaluation of the infant and toddler

• Provide evidence based guidelines on the management of

ankyloglossia and the maxillary frenum as they relate to breast

feeding and oral development

• Explore the importance of the developing airway and tongue

posture in the growth and development of the oro-facial complex

• Understand how non-nutritive sucking habits can affect oral

development and occlusal disharmony

• Learn how to identify and manage developing malocclusions in

Evidence-Based Dentistry Workshop

Saturday, May 27

8:30 AM – 5 PM

Peter H. Buschang, Ph.D. and N. Sue Seale, D.D.S., M.S.D.

Maximum Participants: 20

Cost: $250

Evidence-based dentistry has become the watchword for quality

care and will be increasingly important to the practice of pediatric

dentistry. Your ability to size up research – quickly and correctly – is

essential in a world where publication rates can outpace the ability to

stay current.

In this hands-on digital session, you will discover how to identify

the best clinical evidence as a part of a practical understanding of

evidence-based methods. You will learn how to formulate clinical

questions using PICO (Population, Intervention, Comparator and

Outcomes), a method to refine clinical questions and facilitate computer

searches.

If you would like to go from 2,000 hits to the most relevant 20

online resources in far less time than it takes you now, this course explains

how to efficiently perform literature searches based on specific

clinical questions. You will develop the necessary computer skills and

find out the secrets of using PubMed, a free online index of health

science literature.

Through active discussion and skills practice, you will learn how to

critically evaluate published research studies and rank them according

to the strength of evidence they provide, ranging from expert opinion

and case studies to randomized controlled trials and systematic

reviews.

A must-attend course for lifelong learners in the clinical field of

pediatric dentistry.

Illuminated

Washington Tour

Thursday, May 25

7 – 11 PM

Price per person: $50

The magical feeling of this illuminated

city will give you an entirely new perspective

of the nation’s capital.

Washington is resplendent at night

when the monuments shine in the darkness.

See the Smithsonian Museums,

specifically the Castle, shine with a divine

silhouette against the evening sky. From

this vantage point the beautifully lit Washington

Monument and the U.S. Capitol

Building offer incredible photo opportunities.

The Jefferson Memorial is a grand

homage to the primary author of the

Declaration of Independence and one of

our founding fathers.

Next, guests will have the chance to

view the National World War II Memorial,

which pays tribute to those who served

in the last great war. Stroll through the

National Mall to visit the Lincoln, Vietnam

Veterans and Korean War Veterans Memorials.

The Lincoln Memorial is magnificent

at night, shimmering in the National

Reflecting Pool. See the black granite of

the Vietnam Veterans Memorial glow and

reflect the etched names of over 58,000

men and women to whom it is dedicated.

Time permitting, the group will have

the opportunity to visit the newest memorial

in our nation’s capital, the Martin

Luther King Jr. Memorial.

Welcome to

Washington Tour

Friday, May 26

8:30 AM – NOON

Price per person: $50

Washington, D.C., located at the

confluence of the Potomac and Anacostia

Rivers, is one of only three planned federal

capitals. George Washington chose this site

in 1790, as it lies at the historic mid-point

between the northern and southern colonies.

Pierre Charles L’Enfant was selected

to design the city as the capital for the new

United States. That city plan has evolved

into a beautiful and exciting showplace for

the federal government, with world-class

museums, gardens and monuments to this

nation’s notable history.

Guests will be introduced to the history

and architecture of D.C., with stories,

facts and trivia as you explore monuments,

memorials and notable buildings (by coach)

such as The White House, the Inaugural

Parade Route, Smithsonian Institution

Complex and the Washington Monument.

Next, stop at one of the most visited

areas of the city, the National Mall: a

treasured park that boasts some of the

most recognizable buildings in the world.

Guests will visit the Lincoln Memorial,

Vietnam War Veterans Memorial, the Korean

War Veterans Memorial, the Reflecting

Pool and the World War II Memorial.

This is one of the world’s most beautiful

cities, which you will enjoy even more

in the company of your storytelling guide!

Capital Collection Tour

Saturday, May 27

8:30 AM – NOON

Price per person: $165

Set atop Jenkins Hill, overlooking the

city of Washington, D.C., sits the United

States Capitol. Its cast iron dome is the

most imposing architectural structure in

the city and the chief icon of the nation’s

identity as a federal republic and that of

the legislative branch. Enjoy a private tour

of this hallowed building and you will be

awed by the Rotunda, the symbolic center

of the Capitol and of the city itself. Visit

the Statuary Hall (the original House

chamber), the Old Senate chamber and

the Crypt, which was intended to be the

final resting place of George Washington.

The final stop will be the Library of

Congress—Thomas Jefferson Building, an

elegant neoclassical building lavishly decorated

in the spirit of the Gilded Age. The

building holds the world’s largest library

and is home to Jefferson’s handwritten

draft of the Declaration of Independence.

Hillwood Museum &

Gardens

Saturday, May 27

8:30 AM – 12:30 PM

Price per person: $70

Today guests will travel to the former

home of Marjorie Merriweather Post for

a firsthand look at the opulent lifestyle and

aristocratic luxury of her 25-acre estate,

known as Hillwood. Post was the heiress

of the Post cereal fortune, the wife of

Franklin D. Roosevelt’s first ambassador to

the Soviet Union and mother of famous

actress Dina Merrill. She furnished her

40-room Georgian-Style Mansion with

a comprehensive collection of 18th and

19th century Russian and French decorative

art, including a marvelous collection

of Fabergé eggs, Russian Imperial icons,

rare tapestries and priceless objects d’art.

Art highlights include period pieces from

the reign of Catherine the Great and the

nuptial crown worn by Empress Alexandra

at her wedding to Nicolas II in 1894.

As if the house isn’t enough to take

your breath away, a lavish stroll through

the gardens and greenhouse will be equally

as charming. Assisted by prominent landscape

architects and garden designers of

the time, Post conceived ​of outdoor rooms,

bounded by hedges or large plants. The

elaborately landscaped grounds include

an authentic Japanese garden, a delightful

Russian dacha (summer house) and greenhouse

which shelters a stunning display of

5,000 orchids, as well as other lush foliage

used to decorate the home.

D.C. Neighborhood

Gems

Saturday, May 27

12:30 PM – 4:30 PM

Price per person: $70

Guests will begin with a tour of Washington

National Cathedral. Since the celebrated

moment in 1907 when workmen

laid the foundation stone of Washington

National Cathedral, the majestic structure

has played a vital role in our nation’s

history. The Cathedral has long served as

the grand spiritual center where Americans

unite to worship and pray, mourn the

passing of world leaders, and confront the

pressing moral and social issues of the day.

Of Neo-Gothic design closely modeled

on English Gothic style of the late

fourteenth century, it is the sixth-largest

cathedral in the world, the second-largest

in the United States, as well as the forthtallest

structure in Washington, D.C.

The Cathedral is known for its stunning

architecture and stained glass but also its

numerous quirky gargoyles, ranging from

faux security cameras to Darth Vader.

Next, guests will embark on a tour of

Georgetown, one of Washington D.C.’s

gem neighborhoods, complete with history,

culture, grand estates, fine restaurants and

world-class shopping. From the beautiful

canals and waterfront history, to the amazing

architecture and political intrigue, this

famous neighborhood has many stories.

After guests view highlights of the

neighborhood, they will have some time to

explore the area on their own to experience

the fabulous boutiques and shops of

Georgetown; featuring specialty shops, top

designers, and every brand in between.

Magic of Mount

Vernon

Sunday, May 28

8:30 AM – 12:30 PM

Price per person: $75

George Washington wrote of his

beloved Mount Vernon, “No estate is more

pleasantly situated than this.” Today guests

will enjoy the same breathtaking view

across the Potomac River that enamored

President Washington all those years ago.

The buildings and beautiful grounds,

part of one of the nation’s oldest historic

preservation projects, are as meticulously

preserved as they were in 1799. These

historic grounds reveal Washington’s skill

as one of the foremost agriculturists of his

day, his discerning taste in his home and its

furnishings, and his love of the outdoors.

On this special tour guests can pay

respects at the tomb of George and Martha

Washington, and see the innovative

Pioneer Farmer site (a working 4-acre farm

and re-creation of Washington’s 16 treading

sided barn). Visit the inspirational

Slave Memorial, interesting outbuildings

of the mansion, and the lush gardens and

panoramic views. See the $110 million

Ford Orientation Center and Donald W.

Reynolds Museum and Education Center,

heralded as one of the most comprehensive

and spectacular facilities in the nation.

Healthy Children

®

Healthy Smiles, Healthy Children: The Foundation of the American Academy

of Pediatric Dentistry supports community-based initiatives that provide

Dental Homes to children from families who cannot afford dental care.

Dr. Ned Savide

HSHC President

Dental Home Day Turns Five

Time sure flies. While that’s hardly an observation for the ages, it certainly applies to Dental Home Day. The

2017 Dental Home Day will be at Children’s National Health System on Wednesday, May 24, during AAPD 2017

in Washington, D.C.

It will be our fifth annual Dental Home Day, which has been sponsored each year by Sunstar Americas, Inc.

The event is designed to give back to the AAPD Annual Session host community by providing care for up to 100

children, providing participant children with ongoing care for the following year, and raising awareness of the

importance of child oral health.

Every Dental Home Day has been different.

AAPD 2013, Orlando—Our host clinic, Orange Blossom Family Health Center, made our first Dental

Home Day a huge success, with more than 90 children receiving care that day. More than 50 AAPD volunteers

participated.

• AADP 2014, Boston—Tufts University School of Dental Medicine played host to our second Dental Home

Day. More than 50 volunteers, dental students and pediatric dental residents saw nearly 80 children that day.

AAPD 2015, Seattle—The Center for Pediatric Dentistry at the University of Washington cranked up our

third Dental Home Day, with 40 volunteers, dental students and pediatric dental residents seeing 156 children

(only four missed appointments). The Center also saw every wait-listed child following the event.

AAPD 2016, San Antonio—The School of Dentistry at the University of Texas Health Science Center

San Antonio upped the Dental Home Day stakes, holding the event in two locations: their new dental school

clinic and their community-based clinic. Between both locations, UTHSCSA saw more than 200 patients!

AAPD 2017, Washington, D.C.—We’re anticipating the 2017 event will care for 100 patients – the majority

of whom will be special needs or medically-compromised children. It will be our first Dental Home Day

held in a children’s hospital.

Thanks to the generosity of Sunstar Americas, Inc., volunteers, and host clinic personnel, more than 500 children

since 2013 have received care because of Dental Home Day. And 100 more will receive care on May 24.

There are many intervention events held around the country. They usually cover a day or so and they’re over.

Yes, these events can provide interim relief for children in need, but where do these children go after the last

patient has been seen and the event pulls up stakes? Yes, some care is better than no care, but that’s why Dental

Home Day is a day of service and a year of care. We hope it’s the beginning of a lasting patient/parent-dentist

relationship.

Dental Home Day is the embodiment of our entire approach to grantmaking. We do our best to ensure every

dollar we grant supports activities that are designed to keep children in care throughout the year.

We can’t do any of this without your support. Thanks to you, HSHC grantees give kids smiles every day!

MY DEFINING MOMENT:

“When I was little, I was an anxious patient. Every time I saw my

dentist, he would greet me with a big smile and try to make me

experience at the dentist was positive. That’s why my goal as a

pediatric dentist is to give my patients a positive experience.

The administrative support I receive from PDS allows me to do

that. I feel secure with my role as a clinician because I have the

support of a team that expands beyond my office walls. Plus,

it’s very rewarding when my patients that relocate tell me they

your student loans.

Terms and Conditions Apply. SOFI RESERVES THE RIGHT TO MODIFY OR DISCONTINUE PRODUCTS AND BENEFITS AT ANY TIME WITHOUT NOTICE. See sofi.com/legal for a complete list of terms and conditions.

SoFi loans are originated by SoFi Lending Corp (dba SoFi) California Finance Lender #6054612. NMLS #1121636. 1 Monthly savings calculation is based on all SoFi members with a dental school degree who refinanced

their student loans between 7/1/15 and 6/30/16. The calculation is derived by averaging the monthly savings of SoFi members with a dental school degree, which is calculated by taking the monthly student loan

payments prior to refinancing minus the monthly student loan payments after refinancing with SoFi. SoFi’s monthly savings methodology for student loan refinancing assumes 1) members’ interest rates do not change

over time (projections for variable rates are static at the time of the refinancing and do not reflect actual movement of rates in the future) 2) members make all payments on time. SoFi’s monthly savings methodology

for student loan refinancing excludes refinancings in which 1) members elect a SoFi loan with a shorter term than their prior student loan term(s) 2) the term length of the SoFi member’s prior student loan(s) was shorter

than 5 years or longer than 25 years 3) the SoFi member did not provide correct or complete information regarding his or her outstanding balance, loan type, APR, or current monthly payment. SoFi excludes the

above refinancings in an effort to maximize transparency on how we calculate our monthly savings amount and to minimize the risk of member data error skewing the monthly savings amount. 2 Payment will be issued

electronically once you become a SoFi borrower; you have submitted a completed application with documents and your loan has been disbursed. Offer good for new customers only.


The Two BIGGEST Problems Facing Pediatric Dentists

By Rhea Haugseth, D.M.D.

My name is Dr. Rhea Haugseth, and like you, I am

a practicing pediatric dentist in Marietta, Georgia. Over

the years, I found myself feeling very frustrated with

the lack of efficient, cost-effective training available for

pediatric dental assistants. In fact, there were two major

problems that I continually had to deal with when

hiring a dental assistant for my pediatric practice:

1. They had no clinical training. Even if they had

dental assistants’ training, they still fell short of

the unique needs of a pediatric practice.

2. They had no communication skills. They often

did not know how to talk or act professionally

or how to communicate effectively with

children and their parents. Newly hired dental

assistants tend to be young people who are just

starting their careers. For a variety of reasons,

many of them had very little people skills and

life skills such as how to manage their resources

or prioritize efficiently.

There was plenty of training for general dental assistants,

but nothing for the pediatric field. I knew what

it took to create a spectacular PDA, but frankly, I was

tired of training and re-training with every new PDA.

Dealing With Problem #1

Knowing that my colleagues were also frustrated

with these same challenges, I formally created the

Pediatric Dental Assistant School (PDAS) in Atlanta

where newly hired PDAs in Atlanta-based pediatric

dental offices or those seeking a career as a pediatric

dental assistant could get the training they need (for an

entry-level position) in 9 weeks of training at my office

in Atlanta.

Dealing With Problem #2

Although the PDA graduates were trained clinically,

I realized there were other issues I needed to address;

namely, teaching them the soft skills that came with

working closely with children, parents, and the office

staff. So I created training modules on parent/patient

communication that teaches PDAs the art of effective

communication in a professional setting, and specifically

how to communicate and connect with children

and their parents. This training can make a remarkable

impact in patient/staff relationships.

I realized that the need for specialized training

was universal, and pediatric dentists across the nation

had to deal with these two problems regularly. “How

can I help them?” I wondered. That is when I launched

the Pediatric Dental Assistants Association. It not

only provides the instruction and resources needed to

train newly hired PDAs to quickly become a valuable

and fully-functioning member of the staff, it is also a

place where high-performing PDAs have been able to

grow in their skills and in their careers.

The development of the Pediatric Dental Assistant

School, along with the Pediatric Dental Assistant

Association has been a wonderful addition to my

practice. My staff truly loves these programs!

Pediatric dental offices who would like to

receive more training and mentorship for their pediatric

dental assistants should enroll their assistants in

the PDAA.

For further information, please contact the Pediatric

Dental Assistants Association at 770-823-3534

or email pdadirector@gmail.com.

How Would You Like To Have The Best, The Happiest,

practice. Teaching new skills and sharpening the skills of your existing assistants is the key to keeping

your practice happy, productive, and profitable.

efficiency. This simple addition to the dental chair is more ergonomically correct for you and more comfortable

for the patient.
