Happy National Tooth Fairy Day! 

National Tooth Fairy Day is celebrated twice annually to remind children of the importance of healthy teeth. As dental hygienists, part of our job is educating our youngest patients that good oral care can go a long way and it is best to start healthy habits early on. Educating our patients’ parents is equally important. It’s often not enough to tell your child to “go brush your teeth.” Checking the child’s brushing technique is good practice and necessary to avoid caries. Here is some great tips to provide parents on how to check their child’s teeth and a printable coloring page of the tooth fairy for the kids to enjoy!

Speaker Carl F. Driscoll, DMD
Program Director, Professor, Diplomate, American Board of Prosthodontics

Course Description: The National Cancer Institute predicts that there will be approximately 48,000 new patients with oral and/or pharyngeal cancer this year. Your patients will be included in this number. Various treatment modalities that dentists can provide will be shown via multiple clinical reports of the devastation resulting from the benign to the malignant cancer therapies. Appropriate discussion will ensue to cater to patients currently in your practice as many of our patients and office personnel are not aware of what is available to them. This clinical presentation (no histological slides) is suitable for general dentists, prosthodontists, periodontists, oral and maxillofacial surgeons, laboratory technicians, hygienists and assistants.

Course objectives: 

  1. Learn the various stages that your patients may go through when faced with the diagnosis of cancer.
  2. Learn methods using common dental supplies that are used to treat the dental cancer patients.
  3. Learn avenues of treatment and appropriate referrals to those health care providers with the skills to treat the more complex patients.
  4. Learn to realize the dental team must play an integral role in the treatment of the cancer patient.
