A routinely followed format for the post-trauma examination provides a more organized approach along with the assurance of a thorough evaluation. Other injuries to the head or oral cavity may be missed if the dentist or their team is concentrating only on the most obvious injury or chief complaint. This lecture will instruct attendees in the examination, diagnosis and the treatment of oral trauma in the pediatric patient. Timing and inclusions for follow-up examination, radiographic techniques and antibiotic recommendations will be included. Many accidents lead to legal intervention, and findings that appear to be irrelevant or minor ultimately may be significant. The thoroughness and organization of dental records not only will ensure excellence in treatment, but also may be significant for medico-legal support.

Learning objectives:

Participants will be able to:

  • obtain information and documentation for accurate and complete dental records.
  • perform emergency treatment with an organized approach for assurance of timely and appropriate intervention and follow-up.
  • understand the need for collaboration with other specialists along with determining the provider who will assume primary responsibility for treatment continuity and follow-up.
  • learn current guidelines and review the dental literature.
