Hospital Dentistry: Treating Kids And Special Needs Patients In A Hospital Setting says
Course Overview

This multi-faceted, fast paced presentation will describe to the audience the changing nature of today's pediatric dentistry practice. Some of the interesting medical, physical and psychological conditions of some typical patients that present to the office of Dr. Klein, who are not your 'typical dental patients,' will be listed and described. The rationalization and determination of the suitability to use a general anesthetic agent to treat a patient will be explained. Finally the care of the patient in a hospital setting, from his or her entrance into the building , through the procedure, and ending in the patients discharge will be fully presented. Of interest to note will be the choice of drugs that are routinely used in administration of a general anesthetic.
