Pediatric dentistry learning community model (PDLCM) is to provide patient case-based information to pediatric dentists practicing in rural communities. Community providers will get expert knowledge in a virtual learning network with the University of Mississippi Medical Center School of Dentistry. Curriculum is designed to expand expertise in assessing and treating behavioral and emotional health conditions and school settings for ages 0 to 18.
Echo Topics for Case Based Learning and Discussion include:
- Caries Risk Assessment
- Common Pediatric Dental Syndromes and Medical Conditions (That You May Actually Encounter)
- Hypomineralization and Aesthetic Concerns
- Dental Treatment for Patients with Special Health Care Needs
- Vital Pulp Therapy
- Dental Trauma
- Human Papilloma Virus
The Pediatric Dentistry ECHO is hosted on the Zoom video conferencing platform. It is held on the 4th Friday of each month from 12:00 p.m. to 1:00 p.m. CST.
