SP-25 Treatment of the Transgender Dental Patient

Transgender patients have historically been stigmatized both in the medical and dental fields. The purpose of this presentation is to educate endodontists, residents, and staff about the medical and psychological needs of transgender individuals. This presentation will teach dental personnel how to best interact and serve this population of dental patients. Among topics discussed will be how to create a welcoming office environment, risks associated with prolonged hormone use, effects of cross-hormone therapy and surgical options for both FtM and MtF patients. This presentation will address all aspects of care beginning with a description of terms, as well as how to create the proper office environment. This will lead to a discussion of the medical challenges these patients face and how they may effect their dental treatment. There will also be a comprehensive discussion of the various options that transgender patients have concerning “transition.” This will include surgical options.

At the conclusion, participants should be able to:

  •  Discuss established protocols and guidelines for treating transgender dental patients.
  •  Recognize the unique challenges presented to both the medical and dental communities by male to female and female to male transgender patients, as well as by gender fluid individuals.
  •  Define the emotional impact of transitioning, as it applies to both patients and colleagues.

SP-26 Laying the Foundation for Pediatric Endodontics: Are we Ready for Kids Now?

Vital pulp therapy and treatment of necrotic immature teeth are an important part of endodontic practice and the technical aspects are well understood. However, the management of these young patients is not, and is a process that takes expertise, patience, and practice. In general, endodontic specialty programs do not adequately incorporate pediatric and special needs care patients into their curriculum. This lecture will describe different techniques available to successfully treat young patients with vital and necrotic immature teeth in an effective and more efficient manner.

At the conclusion, participants should be able to:

  •  Describe different techniques for behavioral management, including a- Tell, show, do and voice control b- Oral sedation c- Nitrous oxide d- Intravenous sedation e- Hospitalization.
  •  Classify and define how to implement these techniques for specific case scenarios.
  •  Recognize treatment options available for children with immature teeth with vital and necrotic pulps.
