By recognizing who these patients are, you can treat them safely and possibly save their lives.

Highchair Dental Care: A Revolutionary Practice Model for Infants and Toddlers
Member Price: $279.00
CE Credit(s): 4
Retail Price: $329.00
Course Created on: 12/13/2021
/education/ViewCourse.aspx?id=618|89808
Description:

Highchair Dental Care is an age-appropriate oral health care model — developed by Winifred J. Booker, D.D.S., F.A.A.P.D. — that identifies the opportunity to promote healthy behaviors at the point of care.

The purpose of the course is to share this revolutionary practice model with oral health professionals to:
• Help encourage more of these dental care providers to endear the 1 year-old patient
• Empower these dentists and dental hygienists with the most applicable and useful resources to do so

Dr. Booker shows you how this unique practice of dentistry is designed to excite more parents to decisively identify a dental home for their new baby before or by age 1. Highchair Dental Care provides an optimistic and insightful approach to infant oral health care. It teaches dental professionals an alternative way to treat children beginning as early as 8 months, while at the same time educating parents and caregivers. At this age babies can sit well for several minutes without support. The highchair provides the safety and security needed to conduct the proper infant oral exam. It also allows the infant this first examination in an environment familiar to them, which a traditional dental chair cannot.

Strategies that engage a child’s natural inclination to open their mouth, to laugh or to eat is a part of the course instruction. By placing the baby in a highchair, they are comfortable and usually most willing to open-wide for their first oral examination and dental cleaning. It is a child-friendly approach to patient care that works well with most infants.

The Highchair Dental Care Practice Model offers an alternative standard to address infant oral health. This Practice Model draws attention to the importance of innovation and early interventions to prevent early childhood caries and other potential unfavorable sequelae.
