Esthetics in Pediatric Dentistry: It’s More than Beauty!

with Dr. Daniela Rodrigues P. Silva   (1,5 UFC)

Sponsored by 3M Oral Care

Course Outline:

An esthetically compromised dentition may have serious psychosocial implications during child’s overall growth and development. Traumatic dental injuries, genetic defects, and caries disease can have negative functional and esthetic effects on children. And the dental market today offers us many different options to restore a tooth. This course will be a fast paced and exciting evidence-based clinical presentation of the different techniques available to manage dental esthetic for the young patients.

Learning Objectives:

Esthetic dentistry is the marriage between the “art and science of dentistry”!

Topics that will be covered in this course:

  • Esthetic diagnosis and treatment planning of the dentition
  • The science of color and shade matching for the young patients
  • The treatment options and techniques for restoring the primary and permanent incisors, and molars:

o Direct bonding of composite resin

o Composite strip crowns

o Prefabricated composite and zirconia crowns

Dr. Olaf Plotzke is President of the new Canadian Society for Disability and Oral Health

The Canadian Society for Disability and Oral Health (CSDH) was established in London, Ontario, and given final Certification for Incorporation as a Not for Profit Society on November 26, 2019. The Board of Directors at that time included, Dr. Clive Friedman, Dr. Timucin Ari and Dr. Olaf Plotzke. Recently Dr. Chantal Czerednikow (a GP, from Montreal) and Ms. Carol Yakiwchuk (A Registered Dental Hygienist, from Vancouver) have joined our Board of Directors.  

The Society’s effort is to bring all Canadian oral healthcare providers, who are currently seeing patients with special needs and those we hope to bring on board, under one umbrella.

Broadcast-Quality Video Now Available to AAPD Members

We're excited to share with you the availability of a commercial video touting the importance of our profession. The AAPD has produced a video at the request of members that can be used in your practice and local media markets. The video can also be personalized as a television spot to promote your practice. A preview of this video was shown during the Opening Keynote session during the recent AAPD Annual Session in Boston.

For those of you that are interested in personalizing the video with your practice's information practice for a TV spot in your local markets, you will need to take the Uncompressed Quicktime broadcast video file to any local post-production house and request a custom five-second end tag created to replace the existing five seconds of the video, but NOT replacing the existing audio. These high-quality video files are designed for broadcast use only and will take a long time to download. There are several options available for the production of a custom end tag. Most local TV stations also have production departments that could easily do this end-tag work for a small hourly fee.

Broadcast Quality Videos:

30-Second Spot
60-Second Spot

Bridges Media is the production house here in Chicago who created these videos for us. Should you wish to use them for this customization, please contact them at:

If you are interested in downloading and playing a version on your computers or hosting on your website and social media, please use the much smaller web version. A YouTube of the 60-second video with the AAPD sign-off, can be found at:

Finally, please keep us informed should you place this video in your local media market! Please e-mail AAPD Public Relations Senior Manager Erika Hoeft at
