Interactive LECTURE/APP BASED Workshop LED BY fadi jarad and Sondos Albadri

Introduction: This course will be delivered by a multidisciplinary team of Paediatric Dentistry and Endodontics. The focus of the course will be on the transitional care and management of children with complex dental trauma into adulthood. The content will cover a multidisciplinary team approach to short and long term sequela including surgical and non-surgical interventions.

This will be an interactive session where the attendees will have the opportunity to participate and treatment plan complex cases of different age groups. During the session, we will tell life stories of patients that have had many appointments, disappointments, stress and big smiles!

Aims: The aim of this course is to discuss the sequelae & management of dento-alveolar trauma in children and adults.

Objectives: By the end of the course attendee will be able to:

  • Describe sequelae of dento-alveolar trauma from children to adults.
  • Discuss the role of multi-disciplinary team and transitional service in managing complex dental trauma.
  • Outline the factors that may influence decision making during the patient journey.
  • Recall the rehabilitation options for patients with complex dental trauma.

Educators Forum: A Dental Trauma Curriculum that responds to patient needs

Introduction: Despite outstanding efforts from many researchers and clinicians in developing the IADT Guidelines, the Dental Trauma Guide and other resources for public education, a global competency-based curriculum is still lacking. This 90 minute session will discuss educational possibilities that will support a patient-centered approach for management of trauma by general dentists and specialists. The forum will encourage questions and discussion as well as sharing of  experiences from educational institutions across the world.
