Luncheons for Learning
Evaluation and Management of Pediatric Facial Swellings

Jeffrey C. Mabry, D.D.S., M.S.

One day a month a speaker discusses a dental topic during lunch. The sessions are informal and the group has an opportunity to interact with the speaker during the short discussion period at the end of the lecture. It requires only about one and one-half hour of your time to learn the latest developments in many areas of dentistry. It also offers the opportunity to become better acquainted with your colleagues and their staff since all dental allied personnel and technicians are also invited to attend.

Untreated dental caries and dental trauma can have devastating, and even life-threatening, consequences. Over 50% of pediatric facial swellings are from odontogenic origin. This course will review:
1. Background information on pediatric facial swellings
2. Clinical assessment of pediatric facial swellings, including: classification, challenges, five significant “Red Flags”
3. Clinical management of pediatric facial swellings, including: treatment philosophy,
key treatment principles, non-surgical management, surgical management

1. Recognize the consequences and potential complications of facial swellings in children
2. Discuss the classification system for facial swellings based on origin, location and severity
3. Recognize the most common non-odontogenic causes of pediatric facial swellings
