One in 44 children have been diagnosed on the Autism Spectrum, with approximately 100 newly diagnosed patients daily. Since first identified as a disorder in the 1940’s, Autism Spectrum is the fastest growing developmental disorder in current history. Treating special needs patients in a dental practice presents a multitude of challenges from behavior and cooperation concerns to related health concerns, not to mention the oral considerations associated with medications. As these children on the Autism Spectrum age and integrate into society as young adults many also age out of pediatric dental practices and are seen in general practices. As a practicing hygienist and mother of an Autistic child the speaker has learned methods to ease the anxiety associated with dental appointments for many patients in addition to common oral conditions that may affect individuals with Special Needs.

During this CE webinar, we will
• Review the Autism Spectrum symptoms and commonly related disorders
• Review of common medications used to treat symptoms of the disorder and oral implications
• Introduce alternative methods to treat patients with Special Needs in the dental office
• Discuss recommendation options that may be instrumental for improved homecare
