Session:
PANDA – Prevention of Abuse and Neglect Through Dental Awareness
Friday, April 28 from 8:00 AM – 12:00 PM

Credit Hours:
4

Session Description:
Each week, there are reports in the local and national news of children who are injured or murdered by adults charged with their well-being. Often these sensationalized stories are met with public outrage and force us to grapple with the question of why some parents intentionally harm their children. No doubt, parenting is a demanding, challenging, and often physically exhausting job that taxes even the most capable person. For example, when a maternal or paternal characteristic such as poor impulse control is coupled with a toddler whose developmental goal is independence, the risk for abuse is great. Children represent our most valuable resource. Studies have shown that abuse occurs at all socioeconomic levels and when it comes to damage, there is no real difference between physical, sexual and/or emotional abuse. All that distinguishes one from the other is the abuser’s choice of weapons. Abuse represents a spectrum of behavior. It is repetitive in nature and fatal abuse is often preceded by minor manifestations of maltreatment, which might be overlooked by physicians, dentists, teachers, social work. Children should never die because of our inability to confront the possibility of abuse. Healthcare providers must identify children at risk, educate the families we serve and report suspected cases of abuse and neglect to the appropriate authorities. Our lack of understanding of the complex etiology of child abuse does not absolve our collective responsibility to protect those individuals at risk. The planned presentations include specific clinical aspects of abuse and neglect recognizable in dental settings. South Carolina-specific statutory and liability aspects will be addressed in detail. The anticipated outcome from this engagement is an increased awareness of the positive steps all citizens can take to stop abuse and neglect.

Session Objectives:
  • Be familiar with the enormity of the problem in our culture.
  • Be able to recognize orofacial patterns of abuse.
  • Become thoroughly familiar with the reporting algorithm for abuse and neglect.
  • Understand the role and responsibility of mandated reporters in combating this societal issue.

Session:
Tooth Decay and Liver Decay: The Nexus Between Physicians and Dentists
Friday, April 28 from 1:30 PM – 4:30 PM

Credit Hours:
3

Session Description:
Evolutionarily, sugar had previously been a rare component of the human diet, until the Industrial Revolution brought processed refined sugar to the masses; and with it, a host of new chronic non-communicable diseases. The health and societal detriment of dietary sugar was first noted by modern dentistry; numerous lines of evidence in cardiology research demonstrated the causative role of sucrose. Yet the discovery and application of fluoride in the late 1940’s marked a deviation in the battle against dental caries, as it was thought to be a “magic bullet”. The abandonment of diet as primary caries prevention has had dubious global consequences. Conversely, in clinical medicine, the ostensibly well-meaning dietary directive of “low-fat” led to the unregulated substitution of sugar for fat, unleashing a tsunami of obesity and metabolic syndrome, and the emergence of the previously unknown non-alcoholic fatty liver disease as a primary concern. We now know that the benignity of sugar was propagandized by the sugar industry; yet it has taken the medical, nutritional, and dental communities over 40 years to back away from their egregious embrace, and many still have not. It is time for dentists, physicians, and dietitians to unite to speak with one voice to both industry and government on the message of sugar, diet, chronic disease, and public health.

Session Objectives:
  • To explore the role of glucose vs. fructose in the generation of dental caries, and the effects of fluoride in their prevention
  • To explore the pathogenesis of fatty liver disease, and its role in metabolic syndrome
  • To explain the societal healthcare and financial costs of metabolic syndrome
  • To discuss methods of societal intervention for the prevention of chronic disease
