    Keep your kids IN your practice. 

    This course will give you practical points on how to treat your little patients well. Restorative treatment options and their clinical indications will be presented. 

    Indications and applications of a variety of dental materials and procedures in anterior and posterior teeth will be demonstrated, including resin infiltration, pulpotomy procedures and full coverage aesthetic options. Behaviour management, local anesthetic choice, special needs, anomalies and pathologies will be addressed and so much more. 

    You've heard it before - treat your kids well and your practice will soar. 

     

    COURSE OBJECTIVES:

    • Learn efficient restorative techniques 
    • Treat anterior and posterior decay aesthetically in the primary dentition

    • Bioactive materials. 
    • Aesthetic prefabricated paediatric zirconia full coverage restorations, proper diagnosis, preparation and placement and cementation recommendations. 
    • Pulpal therapy diagnosis and treatment 
    • Minimally invasive resin infiltration - no anesthesia or drilling required.

     

    DR. CARLA COHN 

    Dr. Cohn graduated from the Faculty of Dentistry at the University of Manitoba in 1991. She then went on to complete a post graduate internship in Children's Dentistry at Health Science Centre Children's Hospital. Dr. Cohn entered into private practice after graduation and dedicated most of the first decade to working and raising her three sons. She was alarmed at the rampant tooth decay she encountered in very young children, despite all of the knowledge and education available on preventing tooth decay. Dr. Cohn wanted to help these children regain their health in a quick and efficient manner and thus began her second decade in practice. Today Dr. Cohn's private practice, at Kid's Dental, the focus is on prevention. It is both pro-active and ground breaking. A system that would finally allow dentists to eradicate cavities and treat caries by risk assessment is extremely exciting. As a mother, Dr. Cohn strives to have her own children grow up cavity free. 

    As a dentist, after spending many years repairing and extracting decayed teeth, she looks forward to a future in which we can truly see a decline in cavities.
