POSTDOCTORAL PEDIATRIC DENTISTRY The Department of Pediatric Dentistry offers a 24-month, postdoctoral training program in pediatric dentistry. The program is designed to prepare residents for specialty certification by the American Board of Pediatric Dentistry (ABPD). This university- and hospital-based program includes significant hospital and extramural affiliations in South Florida. Postgraduate core courses provide first-year residents with a didactic foundation to support the wide range of clinical situations they will experience. Hospital rotations in Pediatric Medicine, General Anesthesia, and Pediatric Emergency Medicine provide residents with clinical experience and deeper understanding of pediatric hospital practice. Lectures, seminars, guest speakers, and literature reviews occur weekly. Residents are active participants in a regional, multidisciplinary craniofacial anomalies team. Patients requiring hospitalization and general anesthesia are treated in two area hospitals. Conscious sedation is utilized when appropriate. A partial listing of topics covered in lectures and seminars includes behavior management, restorative dental procedures, selecting and prescribingmedications, pulp therapy, trauma, treatment of patients with special health care needs, and emergency management. Additional requirements, including successful completion of a mandatory, independent research project, are necessary to graduate. The application deadline for all requiredmaterials is August 1. In addition to the Certificate in Postgraduate Pediatric Dentistry, residents can also concurrently earn the Master of Science degree. The Master of Science degree can be completed in two years. Information on that degree can be found in this section. Students are trained in hospital and operating room protocol including the use of general anesthetics. CDM 6000—Pediatric Dentistry Didactic I The aim of the course is to provide the resident with an understanding of the basic principles and theories of child development and the age-appropriate behavior responses in the dental setting, as well as the objectives of various guidance methods such as principles of communication, informed consent, and objectives of sedation and general anesthesia as behavior guidance techniques. Students will acquire a judicious integration of systematic assessments of clinically relevant scientific evidence. CDM 5190—Pediatric Dentistry Didactic II The aim of the course is to provide the resident with an understanding of the mechanisms and patterns of craniofacial growth and development from prenatal through adulthood. Students will learn and understand the different mechanisms and treatment options in the different malocclusion in the child and adolescent patient; be familiar with methods of prevention of dental caries and periodontal diseases in children and adolescents; understand the complexity of the caries disease and its different manifestations; learn to diagnose and treat different caries stages; know and do advanced technique in operative procedures; and know the indications and contraindications of pulpotomy and pulpectomy in primary dentition, as well as techniques for apexification and revascularization in young, permanent teeth. CDM 6020—Pediatric Dentistry Didactic III The aim of the course is to provide the resident with an understanding and treatment alternatives in different clinical situations such as orofacial injuries, periodontal diseases, craniofacial disorders, special needs care patients, and medically compromised patients. Students will acquire a judicious integration of systematic assessments of clinically relevant scientific evidence. CDM 6110—Pediatric Dentistry Didactic IV In this didactic course, a significant revision of the main areas in pediatric dentistry will be presented by different faculty members from the pediatric dentistry department and other disciplines at NSU. The residents will acquire a judicious integration of systematic assessments of clinically relevant scientific evidence.
