What will I learn?

Welcome back to the course and a summary of what will be covered during the last week of the course.

Welcome back to the course. So far we’ve looked at approaches for caries management and dental trauma. This week we’ll look at a range of techniques to manage behaviour in children, and we will discuss the emotional consequences for children, such as anxiety and fear about dental care. In the last part of this course, we will talk about ways to improve treatment planning for children and the use of proformas to capture history and diagnosis and treatment planning.

When you’re ready, go to the next step, where Professor Paul Ashley will give some tips on managing behaviour in children.
