Two-day “Practical Approaches in Pediatric Dentistry” attracts 68 attendees to Las Vegas 

The Institute for the Clinical Practice of Pediatric Dentistry said today that its April 24-25 “Practical Approaches in Pediatric Dentistry” course, featuring the latest and most innovative restorative techniques in pediatric dentistry, was an unqualified success. 

The two-day course took place at the state-of-the-art SimLab at the University of Nevada Las Vegas School of Dental Medicine.  Attendees were able to work alongside experienced professionals and learn how to transform their practices by successfully treating their patients while propelling their business forward. The “Practical Approaches in Pediatric Dentistry” course was designed to provide practicing clinicians with real solutions rather than just theory or research. Attendees learned practical and efficient treatment plans and enhanced their competence in performing full coverage and intracoronal restorations for children.  In addition, they were given powerful takeaways and practical advice that can be immediately implemented the minute they return to their practices.  These takeaways included how to apply a consistent and effective standard of care, and how to increase productivity and profitability.  Attendees received 14 CE credits.

“The course is dead on and top shelf for the science and techniques for pediatric restorative dentistry,” said Charles Stirewalt, DDS, an attendee from Tustin, California.  “I was absolutely engrossed in the material.”

ICPPD course instructors were Roger G. Sanger, DDS, MS; Ray Stewart, DMD, MS; William (Bill) F. Waggoner DDS, MS; and Stephen Wilson, DMD, MA, PhD.  Together these instructors, who are also directors of ICPPD, represent over 160 years of pediatric dentistry experience. 

“We could not be more pleased with the feedback we received from the attendees,” said faculty member and ICPPD director Dr. Bill Waggoner.  “They raved about what they learned during two sessions at UNLV’s SimLab facility, and about how our hands-on instruction will enable to them to immediately implement new restorative pediatric dentistry techniques in their practices.  They also greatly enjoyed the variety of entertainment options provided by our Las Vegas venue.” 

Sponsors of the event were DOCS Education, Hu-Friedy, Isolite Systems, MacPractice, and NuSmile Pediatric Crowns.  Course attendees stayed at the luxurious Venetian Resort.

The ICPPD’s next course will take place in Las Vegas on October 16-17, 2015.  Those seeking to register or obtain further information may do so at www.icppd.net.
