Program Purpose / Objectives

The Pediatric Dental Course You Wished You’d Had in Dental School

This program will be a comprehensive look at the art and science of pediatric dentistry. Topics will range from behavior management to many clinical skills necessary to bring high quality care for children in a dental practice. Issues unique to the specialty, including pulp therapy, space maintenance, local anesthesia, growth and development, oral habits, dealing with parents and others will bring the attendees far in their abilities to welcome young patients into their practices. A variety of new materials and techniques will also be introduced. For those who have concerns about seeing children, this program will allay those fears and help you see that having pediatric patients is arguably the most fun and rewarding aspect of our profession. Specific topics include:

  • If You Can’t Beat ‘em, Enjoy Them (Behavior management)
  • So Little Room, So Much to See (The complete pediatric dental examination)
  • Restore Your Confidence in Pediatric Restorative Care (with focus on the advanced procedures that are often difficult for practitioners, such as stainless steel crowns, primary pulp therapy and local anesthesia)
  • Preventive and Interceptive Orthodontics (Space maintenance and growth and development)

 

Learning objectives:

  • Understand why parents are not a problem when handled well
  • Learn why prioritization and sequencing of appointments is crucial for children
  • See why every pediatric dental examination is a new patient examination
  • Know the importance of radiographs in the evaluation of the developing child
  • Discover innovations that enhance care for children
  • Learn why the infant exam has become the standard of care
Conference Sessions generally take place on days at sea (as itinerary allows), giving you plenty of time to enjoy your meals, evenings and ports of call with your companion, family and friends.

Ports of Call
Cadiz, Spain - This 3,000-year-old town is your portal to Seville, home of flamenco and the exquisite Alcazar Palace; and Jerez, sherry capital at vine-covered bodegas; From Cadiz you can taste the sherries of Jerez and visit an Andalusian equestrian school, or drive through cork plantations to see the marvelous city of Seville with its Alcazar Royal Palace. Cadiz itself boasts a 13th-century cathedral and ancient castle walls.
Cartagena, Spain - In the southeast of Spain on the Mediterranean Sea, you'll find a natural harbor surrounded by five hills - welcome to the seaport known as Cartagena. Cartagena was originally settled in 223 BC. The city has flourished under Roman, Muslim and Arab rule, and today offers a vast cultural legacy. Cartagena was the main city of the Spanish Carthaginians, who named it after their own capital. The port is rich in ancient and maritime history. The town is walled, the harbor defended by forts, and Roman ruins are scattered throughout.
Cherbourg, France - Cherbourg offers everything you could want from a seaside town in France - beautiful gardens, cute little shops, appetizing restaurants. As a port, however, Cherbourg is a maritime institution, playing major roles in early transatlantic travel, submarine building and nautical pastimes. One look at its massive man-made sea wall or its bustling piers and any seafaring adventurer will feel right at home here. It is also one of two gateways for cruise vistors to the D-Day landing beaches about an hour's ride away.
Civitavecchia (Rome), Italy - Plan your time here carefully, as the Eternal City's sights are endless: the Colosseum, the Forum, the Sistine Chapel, the Vatican and so much more.
Copenhagen, Denmark - Denmark's capital is sophisticated, saucy and friendly. Stroll the fairytale world of Tivoli Gardens to take in bright lights, castles that out-Disney Disney. See the city's 200- year-old Royal Palace, the lively Old Harbor - Hans Christian Andersen lived here. Salute the Little Mermaid, symbol of this light-hearted city.
Gibraltar, British Territory - As long as the Barbary Apes remain, the British will rule Gibraltar‐this is the tradition that has held for 350 years. These pesky primates are a favorite with visitors despite their incessant chatter and light-fingered ways. Ride to the top of the Rock for great views over the Strait of Gibraltar‐on a clear day you'll see Africa.
Lisbon, Portugal - Make your own discoveries in the city that launched the Age of Discovery. Cross the River Tagus on its soaring suspension bridge. Wander the maze of streets in the Alfama, the old Moorish quarter, dominated by the medieval Castle of St. George where peacocks strut and shriek. Stroll the Baixa, shop for elegant shoes.
Portland, England - Your visit to Portland and the English countryside of County Dorset will be rich in scenic beauty and centuries-old history. Visit the ancient village of Cerne Abbas and admire its beautiful 14th-century church and 16th-century houses; explore Sherbourne Castle, commissioned by Sir Walter Raleigh in 1594; and marvel at prehistoric Stonehenge, a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
Vigo, Spain - Catholic pilgrims flock to the nearby sacred cathedral of Santiago de Compostela, built over the burial spot of St. James. In Vigo, Galicia province's most populated city, El Sireno, a gilded sculpture depicting a half-man-half-sea-creature, towers over your head and the city's lovely gardens and well-preserved historical buildings.
Zeebrugge (Brussels), Belgium - Zeebrugge is a port in northwestern Belgium, 10 miles north of Brugge and 60 miles from Brussels. Interestingly, it is actually an "artificial port," built because the existing marine channel to Brugge at the time had become clogged with silt. Because of its strategic location, Belgium has often been targeted by opposing military forces, which has contributed to Zeebrugge's rich history. In 1918, during World War I, British naval forces sank block ships in Zeebrugge's harbor to block the entry of German submarines. In 1944, the entire port was destroyed by the retreating Germans.

Cruise Line cancellation policies are strictly enforced. For that reason, we urge all of our travelers to carefully consider whether travel insurance is a good value for them.

Certainly, if you have reason to think that "something might come up" that might force you to cancel, travel insurance is worth the cost of the premium. Examples we've seen in the past include ill or frail family members and changes in employment causing relocation.

If travel insurance is the right choice for you, we recommend TravelSafe.
