VIC Melbourne Beyond Teeth Series 1 Kids Faces Feeding and Sucking Habits Beyond Teeth Series 1: Kids Faces, Feeding and Sucking Habits
Presented by Oral Health Professional Education Courses Australia
DAY 1: GROWING CHILDREN'S HEALTHY SMILES STARTS EARLIER THAN YOU THINK. A healthy and happy face relies on a well developed jaw, a good bite and proper speech.
Common childhood issues can affect a smile or happy face such as dummy, thumb and finger sucking habits, upper airway problems such as large tonsils and adenoids, allergic rhinitis and allergies, tongue tie, low muscle tone, soft diets, reflux in infancy and hereditary factors. As dental professionals, we are seeing so many children in our dental chairs with high narrow palates and crowded teeth? Do you feel confident in speaking with your patients and their parents about topics such as breastfeeding and bottle feeding, starting solids, teeth eruption, crowding and optimal oral, cranial and facial development?
This course will show you how and more.
DAY 2: THUMBS, DUMMIES AND FINGERNAILS - HOW SUCKING AND BITING HABITS IMPACTS ON OUR CHILDREN AND HOW TO FIX IT.
Do you have the expertise to help your patients quit this noxious habit? Our courses will teach you how to incorporate a behavioural modification approach into your skill set that has proven to be effective in the closure of open bites and doesn't involve the traditional mechanical or aversive approaches we know so well.
The American Dental Association recommends behaviour shaping with positive reinforcement to change digit sucking behaviours. This one and half day training program will show you how to implement proven successful programs in your own practice to help children change their lifelong habits in a positive way!
This day includes discussion on how to stop thumb, digit and dummy sucking as well as nail biting! Includes mini hands-on workshop.
