|Treating patients with special needs or anxiety is often unfairly characterized as too difficult. If you have ever wondered about the best way to manage these appointments, we encourage you to attend this two-day course designed to provide attendees with the knowledge and tools necessary to treat all patients!
This case-based course will help participants understand how to work with and effectively treat patients, from the apprehensive to the combative, from infancy to old age, who are living with a variety of physical and mental health disorders. Using these cases, Dr. Levy will illustrate criteria for case selection, protocols for pre- and postoperative care, and practical clinical tips for greater intraoperative efficiency. Day Two will include a workshop in which participants will have the opportunity to put into practice a number of Dr. Levy's tips and tricks for successfully treating anxious and special needs patients! Upon completion of the course, participants will be prepared to implement or augment special needs dentistry within their own practices.
