Treating the challenging child today requires a new approach for behavior guidance. Aversive techniques are no longer acceptable. Permissive parenting along with parents who defend, deny, or attempt to direct treatment bring a new dimension to treatment capabilities. Developmental stages, the multiple factors that influence a child’s behavior, and recommendations for intervention are discussed. Methods to engage and involve parents and ultimately bring them to “our side” are presented. Potential problems are identified, with specific recommendations that can result in more successful and less stressful visits for all.

Learning objectives:

  • Develop methods to engage and involve parents.
  • Discover multiple factors that influence a child’s behavior.

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

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