Children are not small adults. What is unique to the pediatric dental patient is that he/she is growing and changing, making each visit in a dental setting a new patient examination rather than a simple caries check. Growth and development factors must be monitored closely to ensure that potential problems can be diagnosed and treated. The role of radiographs will be emphasized to demonstrate how many developmental entities are asymptomatic and can only be found with an x-ray. Becoming more aware of asymmetries is the clinical clue that will lead to the radiographic diagnosis. Included in this presentation will be anomalies, pathology and some early orthodontic issues.
Dr. Greg Psaltis has been a pediatric dentist for 34 years, the last 28 of which have been in private practice in Olympia, Washington. In addition to enjoying his practice, Dr. Psaltis lectures frequently on pediatric topics, as well as communication skills and practice management. He currently consults with several private practices to improve office systems and team building. His unique speaking style reflects his years of experience and his keen observations, thus making his programs both informative and entertaining.
