Dentistry for Children: Getting an Early Start | 2.75 CEU

Are you currently seeing children under age 3 in your practice? If not, you are missing out on an entire patient population that could potentially be your patient for their entire life.  This comprehensive course will give you all the tools you need to create an infant oral health program for your dental practice. You will learn how to assess the caries risk on an infant or toddler, provide counseling to parents on caries prevention, and answer their questions regarding feeding and brushing habits. You will also be able to provide information concerning non-nutritive sucking habits and bruxism concerns.


  • Recognize the optimum age to start seeing a child in order to prevent future dental caries
  • Understand how the child’s early physical health can influence their risk for dental caries

Be a ROCK-STAR Team-Move from Where You Are to Where You Want to Be | 2.75 CEU

Everyone longs to be part of something special, to know their contributions make a difference. When Dr. Tanya Brown started her practice from scratch, she had a vision of a productive, high-performing team. In the beginning, the vision did not always match reality, but through trial and error, Dr. Brown discovered key elements that have repeatedly created Rock-Star teams.  Whether it is team disharmony, schedule overload or case acceptance, this course uncovers and discovers simple yet effective steps to turn things around. The real magic of this program happens when attendees realize that everything needed for success lies within. You will be able to move from where you are to where you want to be starting on Monday!
