Dr. Jeanette MacLean is a Diplomate of the American Board of Pediatric Dentistry, Fellow of the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry, owner of Affiliated Children’s Dental Specialists in Glendale, Arizona, and mother of two. She received her dental degree, with honors, from the University of Southern California in 2003 and completed her specialty training in pediatric dentistry in 2005 at Sunrise Children’s Hospital through the University of Nevada School of Medicine. Dr. MacLean has become an internationally recognized advocate and expert on minimally invasive dentistry, appearing in newspapers, magazines, television, and continuing education lectures on this hot topic. Most notably, she was featured in the July 2016 New York Times article “A Cavity Fighting Liquid Helps Kids Avoid Dentists’ Drills,” which brought national attention to the option of treating cavities non-invasively with silver diamine fluoride.

Noninvasive Caries Treatments
Minimally invasive treatment of incipient caries lesions can help delay or even avoid entering the surgical restorative cycle and prolong the lifespan of the natural dentition. Non-surgical interventions like topical fluorides, remineralization, silver diamine fluoride, and resin infiltration can help reverse or arrest non-cavitated proximal. This course will explore proactive treatment for incipient caries lesions that bridge the gap between “watch and wait” and “drill and fill.”
Pulp Therapy and Stainless Steel Crowns
Frequent snacking, not flossing, and unsupervised brushing combined with baby teeth’s thin enamel, enlarged pulp chambers, and tight, broad contacts create the perfect storm for rapid breakdown of tooth structure. Multi-surface restorations can be unpredictable and difficult to place in young children. Pulp therapy and stainless steel crowns (SSCs) are some of the most common pediatric dental procedures, as well as the most dependable for achieving long term clinical success. This course will review minimally invasive options like indirect pulp therapy and the Hall Technique, as well as conventional vital pulpotomy and SSC placement. Whether you are a general dentist that enjoys treating children or a seasoned pediatric specialist, we will review tips and tricks to help increase your treatment confidence and improve clinical outcomes.
Tongue-Tie Update: How Oral Restrictions Impact Feeding, Speech, and Sleep Across the Lifespan
Dr. Richard Baxter is a board-certified pediatric dentist and diplomate of the American Board of Laser Surgery. He is a nationally recognized speaker on tongue-ties, and lead author of the bestselling book Tongue-Tied: How a Tiny String Under the Tongue Impacts Nursing, Speech, Feeding, and More. He is passionate about educating parents and healthcare practitioners about the effects a tongue-tie can have throughout the lifespan. He lives in Birmingham, AL with his wife, Tara, their five-year-old old twin girls, Hannah and Noelle, and infant Molly. He is the founder and owner of the Alabama Tongue-Tie Center where he uses the CO2 laser to release oral restrictions that are causing nursing, speech, dental, sleep and feeding issues. He had a tongue-tie himself, and all three of his girls were treated for tongue and lip-tie at birth, so for him, this field is a personal one. In his free time, he enjoys spending time with his family and outdoor activities. He serves as an elder at his church and is on the board of Reach the Rest, a global missions organization. Dr. Baxter also participates in many overseas dental mission trips. He is currently working on several research and educational projects related to tongue-ties.
Dr. Soroush Zaghi graduated from Harvard Medical School, completed residency in ENT (Otolaryngology- Head and Neck Surgery) at UCLA, and Sleep Surgery Fellowship at Stanford University. He now serves as medical director of The Breathe Institute where the focus of his sub-specialty training is on the comprehensive treatment of nasal obstruction, mouth breathing, snoring, and obstructive sleep apnea in children and adults. He is very active in clinical research with over 90+ peer-reviewed research publications in the fields of neuroscience, head and neck surgery, myofunctional therapy, and sleep-disordered breathing. He is an invited lecturer, author, and journal reviewer for topics relating to the diagnosis and management of sleep-disordered breathing and tongue-tie disorders in children and adults.
