“High Chair Dental Care: A Revolutionary Practice Model for Infants and Toddlers” is an age-appropriate oral health care practice that identifies the opportunity to promote healthy behaviors at the point of care. The high chair provides the safety and security needed to conduct a “receptive” infant and toddler oral health examination. It affords these patients their first examination in an atmosphere familiar to them, which a traditional dental chair cannot. The last hour will be hands-on.

Learning objectives:

  • Learn to how to endear the 1-year-old patient population.
  • Learn use of the high chair in the clinical setting while providing oral examination and oral hygiene care as well as diet and health education for parents and caregivers.
  • Learn how to teach caregivers to provide routine dental hygiene after meals using the high chair.

This course is designed for dentists, hygienists, and assistants.

Co-sponsored by MDA Insurance, MDA Services, and Michigan Academy of Pediatric Dentistry.
