The Canadian Academy of Pediatric Dentistry (CAPD/ACDP) is thrilled to announce that registration for the 2016 Annual Meeting in Toronto is now open at http://conference.capd-acdp.org.
The Meeting will take place at the Toronto Marriott Downtown Eaton Centre Hotel on September 22nd, 23rd and 24th, so you will be right in the heart of the city with easy walking and subway access to many key attractions including shopping at the Eaton Centre, the Art Gallery of Ontario, China Town, the Royal Ontario Museum, the CN Tower, the Hockey Hall of Fame and Rogers Centre, the home of the Toronto Blue Jays.
We have worked hard to secure three insightful speakers for the scientific sessions. Add in the Annual General Meeting and the Graduate Student Abstract Presentations, the Welcome Reception at the Hockey Hall of Fame, and the President’s Gala Dinner and Dance (featuring Andre Bisson and the JTones), and you have one amazing event!
And in addition…not only do attendees take part in a broad range of educational programming and social events, but they also have the opportunity to visit Sponsors and Exhibitors on the trade show. Our Sponsors and Exhibitors enhance the Annual Meeting in many ways and are an integral part of the whole experience for attendees.
CAPD/ACDP’s Annual Meeting is the place to connect!
I look forward to seeing all of you in Toronto,

Orthodontic Considerations in the Management of Compromised and Hypoplastic Molars
Pediatric dentists often face the difficult problem of restoring compromised or hypoplastic first permanent molars in young patients. In some situations, the question is whether to restore or extract. This session describes what happens after extraction, discusses factors that determine the extraction decision (including the importance of timing) as well as modern approaches to space management. Several clinical cases are described in detail from an orthodontic perspective.

Hypophosphatasia, with Dr. Ann Griffen
Ann Griffen, DDS, MS is a pediatric dentist, microbiologist and Professor in the College of Dentistry at The Ohio State University and Nationwide Children’s Hospital. For more than 25 years she has worked closely with periodontists to provide specialty care for children with periodontal problems, including multiple children with hypophosphatasia. In addition, she has a large research program studying the human oral microbiome, and has mentored many pediatric dental residents on award-winning research projects. Her research group studies the microbiota of caries, periodontal disease, diabetes, HIV, and the acquisition of oral microbes in children.
This presentation will review the etiology and pathophysiology of hypophosphatasia (HPP), and describe both the systemic and dental manifestations of HPP, including those of “odontohypophosphatasia.” Diagnosis of HPP and differentiating HPP from other dental problems will be reviewed, and the role of pediatric dentists as part of the medical team in making timely and accurate diagnoses will be emphasized. Enzyme replacement therapy and possible dental effects of treatment will be discussed. Finally, efforts to learn more about the lifelong dental outcomes of odontohypophosphatasia will be discussed.
After this session participants will

Pearls on managing the eruption of the primary and permanent teeth will be described. How to manage delayed eruption, mesiodens, ectopic eruption and many more will be shared. Tips about treating habits and behavior management will be shared. A multitude of clinical cases will be used to demonstrate the practical pearls.
At the end of this session, participants will:
