With the ongoing uncertainty surrounding both domestic and international travel, the Executive has once again made the difficult decision to hold the Montreal 2021 meeting virtually. This year, in addition to the Executive Council Meeting, Annual General Meeting and 3M Graduate Student Research Presentations we are pleased to be offering a robust virtual scientific session. A collaborative CAPD/ACDP and AAPD scientific committee has developed a program themed “Molar Hypomineralization (MH) – Everything You need to Know!” which will provide a foundation upon which to base treatment options for this frequently encountered condition. The impressive roster of presenters will cover topics ranging from diagnosis and pathophysiology to restorative, endodontic, orthodontic and prosthodontic factors to consider when developing individualized care plans.
I look forward to seeing you virtually in September.
A Message from AAPD President, Dr. Jeannie Beauchamp, DDS
It is my distinct pleasure to welcome you to this first joint symposium of the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry and the Canadian Academy of Pediatric Dentistry. Our collective commitment to optimal oral health for all children is reflected in the world class virtual sessions that we have for you in this symposium. This timely topic of Molar Hypomineralization (MH) will be very beneficial for all Pediatric Dentists. I am so sorry we were unable to meet in person but hope to see you virtually.
A Message from Dr. Patrick Canonne, Chair, Local Organizing Committee
Unfortunately we will not be able to attend the Montréal Conference live, but instead we can enjoy a lively, virtual event! Follow the announcements so you don’t miss any details!
This course will discuss the etiology and prevalence of Molar Hypomineralization (MH). Pain pathways associated with the pathophysiology of MH will be presented, as well as ways to manage the pain short-term and longer-term. Restorative treatment options will be discussed and orthodontic special care considerations will be presented, including decision-making on whether to extract or not extract. Pulpal considerations will be discussed, including current evidence-based pulp therapy.
The list of Sponsors and Exhibitors will be updated regularly
