This presentation will focus on recognition of developing malocclusions and a problem oriented, age appropriate intervention, and benefits approach to treatment. Participants will learn management considerations from the unique perspective of a dual trained specialist in pediatric dentistry and orthodontics, balancing an evidence based foundation with sound clinical judgement to achieve measurable results.
Recognize early mixed dentition issues that may benefit from intervention as a Phase 1 treatment, yet likely requiring a future Phase 2 treatment.
Observe late mixed dentition scenarios that may dictate an early start of care leading to a single phase of care.
Identify the various appliances available to optimize delivery of care.
