ICPPD Is Now the Institute for Pediatric Dentistry


New name reflects curriculum expansion into practice management


The Institute for the Clinical Practice of Pediatric Dentistry (ICPPD) has changed its named to the Institute for Pediatric Dentistry (IPD). The rationale for the name change is to better reflect the evolving content of the Institute’s courses.

“As part of our ongoing effort to provide the most relevant and practical pediatric dentistry training, we survey our participants immediately following each course,” said Mark Binford, an IPD Director. “While the doctors tell us they love our clinical training, they’ve also asked us to expand into additional topics including practice management.”

As an example, The IPD is offering a new standalone course – “Game Changers for Dental Assistants” – in conjunction with its next dentist’s course, “Game Changers in Pediatric Dentistry.”

The new course is specifically designed to enable dental assistants to become high-performance contributors to the dental team. Both courses will take place October 7-8 at UNLV’s SimLab in Las Vegas. Dentists earn a total of 20 CE credits while dental assistants earn 16 CE credits.
