Providing dental care for patients with special health care needs can be both challenging and rewarding. With Autism Spectrum Disorder on the rise, dentists are more likely to see these patients in their offices. During today’s lecture, Dr. Shick will discuss the characteristics of ASD and how to successfully manage patients with ASD in the dental office. From the front desk to the back operatory, every member of the dental office team has an important role in providing compassionate care for ASD patients.

Learning objectives:

  • Gain an understanding of Autism Spectrum Disorder.
  • Learn tips for treating patients with ASD in the dental office.
  • Understand how to utilize non-invasive treatments such as Silver Diamine Fluoride.
