The registration period has closed for this event.


The 34th Annual Charles A. Sweet, Sr. Pediatric Dentistry Memorial Lecture will feature Dr. Jeffrey A. Dean presenting on Pediatric Pulp Therapy and Restorative Dentistry.


It is an exciting time in pediatric dentistry as research and reviews have supplied us with changing information that will help improve our practice and increase the ease and effectiveness of treatment for young patients. For decards we have been looking for the magic medicaments and techniques for pulp therapy and now have convincing evidence for new directions in which we should proceed. As well as pulp therapy, restorative therapy is taking on a new minimalist approach that has shown significant effectiveness. This doesn't mean we throw out tried and true operative procedures, but that we incorporate these new and exciting procedures into practice. The purpose of this program is to review new findings and recommendations and suggest a private practice implementation protocol for everyday use.
