As the old medical adage goes, "Prevention is Better than Cure". Successful Phase I, early & interceptive treatment has been shown to reduce the need for more complex, aggressive & traumatizing treatment when the patient is older. This module is specifically designed for the pediatric dentist or general dentist with a strong children patient population. It aims to train the candidate to detect all potential problems in all planes of space when the patient is young and how to manage these problems to avoid a myriad of more complex problems in Phase II. Over the course of 3 days, candidates will be taught how to diagnose and treatment plan for Phase I, how to establish realistic goals and objectives and how to use an array of appliances to achieve success. Candidates will be trained how to use 2x4 setups, habit breakers, lip bumpers, head gears, face-masks, space maintainers and other functional appliances to treat patients when young and reduce the need for extractions and or orthognathic surgery when they are older. It is not surprising that the early & interceptive clinician is often very successful in building a strong relationship with their patients and building a solid patient foundation.
