Successfully Treating ALL Patients with Anxiety or Special Needs
Boston, MA • June 7, 2019, 9:00 AM - June 8, 2019, 5:00 PM

Treating patients with special needs or anxiety is often unfairly characterized as too difficult. If you have ever wondered about the best way to manage these appointments, we encourage you to attend this two-day course designed to provide attendees with the knowledge and tools necessary to treat all such patients!

This case-based course will help participants understand how to work with and effectively treat patients, from the apprehensive to the combative, from infancy to old age, who are living with a variety of physical and mental health disorders. Using these cases, Dr. Levy will illustrate criteria for case selection, protocols for pre- and postoperative care, and practical clinical tips for greater intraoperative efficiency. In this workshop, participants will have the opportunity to put into practice a number of Dr. Levy's tried and tested tips and tricks for successfully treating anxious and special needs patients! As a Hall of Fame martial arts Master, Dr. Levy will also teach the use of acupuncture pressure points to pen the mouths of uncooperative patients. Upon completion of the course, participants will be prepared to implement or augment special needs dentistry within their own practices.
