Managing Pain for the Non-Communicative Patient in the Era of Telehealth
The management of pain in non-communicative patients, such as children with special needs, demands the utmost in clinical skill, even at the best of times.
But with the Covid-19 pandemic forcing dentists to use telehealth for elective patients, diagnosing and managing this patient group has become even more of a challenge.
The Canadian Society for Disability and Oral Health, an organization dedicated to improving the oral health and quality of life of people with special needs, gives its inaugural presentation:
Managing Pain for the Non-Communicative Patient in the Era of Telehealth.
The expert panel of Dr. Clive Friedman, Dr. Darya Dabiri, Dr. Donald Nixdorf, Dr. Margherita Fontana and Dr. Daniel Clauw, offers insight into a wide range of topics including:
- Dental Pain in Children with Special Needs
- Temporomandibular Disorders
- The Management of Nociplastic Pain
- Silver Diamine Fluoride as a Non-Invasive Dental Treatment
