This lecture will help your orthodontic office create a working relationship with pediatric dentists in order to increase your referral base. You will learn what the pediatric dentist is looking for when it comes to referring to an orthodontist and you may increase referrals from individuals who are not already sending patients your way. This lecture will address behavior management for difficult and special needs patients, improving the oral hygiene of your orthodontic patient, and how to correct ectopic permanent molar eruptions, posterior crossbites, and single tooth anterior crossbites in young children whose primary dentist may not have the training to do so.
