A Message from the Chair of the Ottawa Organizing Committee
Fellow CAPD/ACDP Members,
It’s cold and snowy in the nation’s Capital as I write this, but come next September, we will welcome you with a “snow-free guarantee” unlike, I might add, Banff. However, like that beautiful town and the successful 2018 meeting, we have put together a full package in Ottawa for you, your staff, and the entire family.
We start off on Thursday with 3 pre-courses. Dr’s. Don Morrow and Jennifer Irwin will lead a Level 1 Workshop on Motivational Interviewing, techniques and motivational skills for you and your staff in your practice. QRS Education instructors will also be teaching a hands-on PEARS (Pediatric Emergency Assessment, Recognition and Stabilization) Course for pediatric dentists, in particular those using levels of conscious sedation in their practice. Both of these full day courses have limited attendance, so please register early to assure your spot. After the full-day pre-courses conclude, NuSmile, one of the CAPD/ACDP Sustaining Sponsors is offering the Pre-Conference Symposium with Dr. Zafer Cehreli, “The Pediatric Dentist Clinical Role in Endodontic management of Young Permanent teeth”.
The main scientific program begins on Friday with the conference theme of “Pediatric Dentistry: Evolving Trends and Changing Paradigms” and for this we have brought in the stars: Drs. Kevin Boyd, Clive Friedman, Anne Rowan-Legg, Kathy Momtahan and Barbara Sheller, with an incredible Conference Summit talk by Dr. Jeffrey Turnbull.
But of course the Ottawa Annual Conference is not just about the science. Join us in the Haida Gwaii Salon for an exciting Welcome Reception on Friday at the Canadian Museum of History, a beautiful architectural masterpiece alongside the Ottawa River. On Saturday evening as we close the 2019 Annual Conference, reconnect with colleagues and friends in the Panorama Room, high atop the Delta Hotels Ottawa City Centre, taking in the sunset over the city the Ottawa River and Gatineau Hills.
For companions and family there is a lot to see and do in the city and surrounding sites. Over the weeks and months ahead we will be announcing special activities to keep all happy and busy.
Please review the Conference program and register soon to guarantee your place at a great CAPD/ACDP gathering in Ottawa. We look forward to hosting you and your family.
Ian McConnachie, Chair, Local Organizing Committee
The City of Ottawa started off as a small village called Wright’s Town in 1800. Named after the farmer Philemon Wright, the village later became Hull, Quebec, across the Ottawa River from present-day Ottawa and part of the National Capital Region of Canada.
The village of Bytown was founded in 1826. It was named after the British engineer who supervised the construction of the Rideau Canal and today in Ottawa we have the Byward Markjet, and the Bytown Museum to remember Colonel John By’s accomplishments.
The name of the growing settlement was changed to Ottawa in 1855, after the “Ottawa River” which in turn had taken its name from the Algonquin First Nation word “Adawe” meaning ‘to trade”. In 1857, Queen Victoria chose Ottawa as the new capital for the Province of Canada. It was located between Montreal and Toronto, two of the cities competing to be the Capital, plus Ottawa was far from the American border. In 1867 Ottawa became the Capital of the Dominion of Canada.
Today Ottawa is a beautiful city where the Gothic-Revival style of the Parliament Buildings contrast with the dazzling architecture of the National Museums. And the many attractions continue with walkways, parks, bicycle paths, Embassy Row, Rideau Hall (the home of the Governor General), the Rideau Canal Locks, Confederation Square, seasonal festivals, shopping, dining, and amazing views of the Ottawa River. This is one destination where you may want to devote some time to explore before or after the Annual Conference.

Note to Participants: This is a hands-on or experiential workshop with lots of work in interviewing dyads followed by discussions and integrations into your professional practices.
This introductory full day session provides a meaningful overview of MI using The Monarch System’s unique approach which integrates MI with other impactful and evidence-based behaviour change practices such as coaching methods and key elements of behaviour change theories/applications. Most importantly, we will explore and help you to acquire applied techniques to use with your patients in your day-to-day practice. You will learn how to build motivation and transition that enhanced motivation into a strengthened and real commitment to healthier oral health behaviours. We will teach you different ways to use such elements as presence, competence views, compelling questions, reflective listening, readiness to change and change talk, tagging values onto desired behaviour changes, and moving with apparent-resistance in service of your patients’ health- related behaviours in lifelong care.
Learning Objectives & Relevance to Dental Professionals
At the end of our workshop on Motivational Interviewing & Coaching skills for the CAPD/ACDP, participants will be better able to:
• incorporate a repertoire of motivational skills into their professional toolbox;
• build motivation and commitment with their patients;
• collaborate with more engaged patients to design a working partnership for both shifting and managing their behaviours;
• work with people’s resistance toward improved motivation re specific health goals;
• reduce professional burnout by learning to incorporate motivational interviewing skills into their work;
• facilitate people’s real and authentic commitment to making important, short- and especially long-term behaviour changes.
Dr. Jennifer Irwin and Dr. Don Morrow both are award winning teachers, certified professional coaches trained and accredited with both the Coaches Training Institute and the International Coach Federation, and experienced, competent Motivational Interviewing (MI) workshop Facilitators.Both of them are also university professors, widely published authors, and proficient presenters to groups varying from small workshops to very large groups (up to 1200).

Dr. Cehreli’s lecture style is not only educational, but, also enjoyable, engaging and encouraging relating to the unique skills and abilities of the pediatric dentist specialist.
The Pediatric Dentist Clinical Role in Endodontic management of Young Permanent teeth – Children Need your Skills.
Pediatric dentists are in a unique position to provide a wide range of easy and effective endodontic therapies that would otherwise result in early tooth loss or eventual failure of the interventive procedure. Endodontic treatment for open-apex immature permanent teeth often presents a unique challenge to the clinician.
This 2 hour presentation will review a wide spectrum of conventional and recent treatment options comprising apexogenesis, apexification, artificial apical barriers and management of post-traumatic inflammatory root resorption. The changing concepts in the management of young permanent teeth with irreversible pulpitis will be discussed in light of recent literature. The use of mineral trioxide aggregate (MTA) and other bioceramic materials will be reviewed on many long-term follow-up case presentations with different levels of endodontic involvement and hard tissue loss. Finally, current challenges in regenerative endodontic procedures will be discussed with emphasis on post-treatment tooth discoloration as well as clinician- and patient-based outcomes on many well-documented case presentations.
Upon completion of the Course, the clinician will have the knowledge and confidence to incorporate these endodontic procedures immediately into their practice.
Dr. John O’Keefe is Director, Knowledge Networks with the Canadian Dental Association. In this role he is responsible for CDA Oasis, where conversations that are important to the Canadian dental profession take place, and for the publication of the JCDA and CDA Essentials magazine.
He graduated as a dentist from the University of Dublin, in 1980, and obtained an M.Dent.Sc. degree from the same university in 1990. He is licensed to practice dentistry in Ontario.

He was senior staff lead for the project that led to the publication of “Dentistry 2032” by the CDA Task Force on the Future of the Profession.
“What got us here, won’t get us there”
The phrase in the presentation title captures the realization by the Board of the Canadian Dental Association (CDA) in 2016 that we as a profession had to take innovative proactive measures to help shape the future of our profession over the next 15 years. This realization led to the creation of a 25-person task force and the publication in April 2018 of “Dentistry 2032.” This report of the task force set out four vision statements for the Canadian dental profession for the year 2032, to be accomplished by the profession executing 28 recommendations.
In this presentation, Dr. John O’Keefe will highlight the measures that CDA has embarked on to execute 12 of the top priority recommendations and he will emphasize that collaboration will be the key to “getting us there” in terms of a healthy public and a strong profession by 2032.

Assessment of Apnea/Pre-apnea in the Pediatric Dental Patient: Then What?
Specific Human Malocclusion (poorly aligned teeth and jaws) phenotypes are a common finding among children raised in industrialized societies. However, these HM traits are a rare finding in the pre-Industrial skeletal and fossil records, and seldom seen in extant (modern day) aboriginal societies who have not yet been (so-called) Westernized. Many children diagnosed with SDB/OSA have also been diagnosed with ADD/ADHD; certain HM phenotypes known to be (at least) co-morbid with, if not causally related to, development of SDB/OSA and ADD/ADHD, etc., are usually first detectable in very early childhood (primary dentition), and recent evidence suggests that they might even be detectable in utero (mid-gestaional ultrasound imaging). Changed dietary regimens associated with cultural industrialization during infancy/early childhood (i.e., nursing and weaning period) and beyond, seem to have played a role in the observed increased prevalence of skeletal-dental HM since the Industrial Revolution in Western Europe and North America from the late 18th- thru the mid/late-19th-Centuries.
Attendees will learn that:
1. Human malocclusion, now pandemic in industrialized cultures, is a relatively recent phenomenon in AMH’s, is associated with changed cradle to grave dietary strategies that are characteristic of cultural industrialization
2. Antecedents to Human Malocclusion can be initially detected in early childhood, and possibly also during fetal development
3. Early/very early detection of certain HM phenotypes, and appropriately timed and applied dento-facial orthopedic intervention, can decrease risk for developing comorbidities associated pediatric SDB/OSA, ADD/ADHD and other airway-related systemic disorders.
4. Non-retractive orthodontic/dentofacial orthopedic intervention strategies, such as bi-maxillary expansion with/without mid-facial protraction, have recently been shown to improve naso-respiratory ability in children with co-morbid retrusive and constrictive malocclusion who are in the primary or early mixed dentition (i.e., under 7 yrs old); interestingly, for mutual pediatric patients who suffered from habitual mouth-breathing and enlarged adenoids, some of these early intervention regimens had been effectively in use since the mid/late-19th Century per close collaboration between physicians and dentists.
13:45 to 14:30 Transitioning Special Needs Patients to Adult Practice, with Dr. Clive Friedman
Dr. Clive Friedman BDS Cert ped Dent., is a Graduate of the University of Witwatersrand South Africa. He received his specialty in Pediatric Dentistry from the University of New Orleans. Currently Clive is in part time clinical practice . He’s an Associate Clinical Professor at UWO and U of T, a Diplomate of the American Board of Pediatric Dentistry and a Fellow SCD. Clive was a past president of the ADPD, and iADH.
Currently sits on the International Clinical Council on FOP. He has lectured extensively both Nationally and Internationally with specific interest in Special Needs and Behavior.
This presentation will present the current models being used in Pediatrics to facilitate transfer and transitioning of individuals with special needs to an adult based practice. Issues specifically related to Dental and Oral Health will be discussed followed by a dialogue which will hopefully result in the creation of a document and forms that can be distributed to the CAPD/ACDP for use in each persons practice.

The Science of Human Factors and Modern Dental Practice – Learning From Other Disciplines
This talk with provide conference participants with an introduction to Human Factors Engineering and Psychology, focusing on the topics that would benefit dental practice. Although there appears to be very little human factors research in the area of dentistry, much of the research and evaluation strategies that have been applied elsewhere in healthcare provide some insights into systems design, human performance, and optimal allocation of function between humans and machines that could be beneficial to the practice of modern dentistry.
1. Discover the relevance of the science of human factors engineering and psychology to modern dental practice.
2. Understand the contribution of human factors research and expertise to patient safety.
3. Gain insights into the interaction between human factors, human-machine interface design, information technology and workflow.
4. Identify human factors methods that can be applied to the evaluation of systems, technology and human performance in dental offices and operating rooms.

She strives to create and deliver presentations that blend scientific evidence with clinical experience and give course attendees practical tools to apply in their own practice.
Applying Contemporary Behavior Science in Pediatric Dentistry Practice
Course synopsis: this lecture will introduce attendees to the psychology behind successful non-pharmacologic behavior management. We can often help patients and their parents by what we say or don’t say, effective coaching, avoiding triggering the child patient’s survival brain reactions, and intentionally strengthening the social-emotional connection with our patients, parents, and team. This seminar is designed to be relevant to pediatric dentists of all experience levels and practice types.
Learning Objectives: After this lecture participants will:
1. Be introduced to emerging concepts in behavior science
2. Understand how components of the dental experience are processed within the various brain regions
3. Be more able to select effective countermeasures to challenging/distressed patient and parent behaviors
4. Be updated about current options for local anesthesia delivery
