Getting into the good graces of children is almost half the work to be accomplished. Indeed, behaviour modification is the cornerstone of Paediatric dentistry, and is widely agreed to be the ultimate preventive and restorative tool. Since children exhibit a broad range of physical, intellectual, emotional, and social needs, as well as a diversity of attitudes and temperaments, it is important that dental clinicians who work with paediatric patients have a wide range of behaviour modification techniques to meet the needs of children, and the ability to be tolerant and flexible in their implementation. Join Caitlin, as she takes you on a journey through the key elements of behaviour modification: managing yourself, managing the patient and managing the parents. There will be a special focus on current concepts of managing child behaviour in the dental setting, building trusting relationships with the child and parents, and, ultimately, promoting a positive attitude toward oral health care.
