PROGRAM PURPOSE

This program will span a variety of topics, ranging from pediatric dental examination (Bite #1) to issues with parental demands based on their internet "education" (Byte #2) to nutritional guidance for a healthier life (Bite #3). The final section will include a session about no bites, namely managing the behavior in the pediatric dental setting. The specifics on the courses are:

  1. So Little Room, So Much to See (the complete pediatric dental examination):

    Every pediatric dental examination is a new patient examination because of the dynamics of growth and development. There is much to see in the mouths of children other than caries and loose teeth. This program includes recognition of anomalies, growth and development, symmetry and balance of the dentition and other components that make examinations on children unique.

  2. Eating as if Your Life Depends on it

    Daily food choices create the foundation for your overall health and ultimately the health of your practice. We will cover hidden influences, sugar awareness, and explore the fascinating connections between brain, gut and the path along the way. Let’s look at the food we eat (or not) and identify action steps, both large and small, that add up a lifetime of well-being.

  3. Dealing with Dr. Google

    With this parent (and patient) demands becoming greater all the time, the focus here will be on how and why this has arisen, grown and become, at times, a headache for practitioners. Specific strategies for dealing with various pediatric dental issues will be included as well as how to deal with negative online reviews.

  4. In Stressful Times is the 5G World Working for You?

    The pandemic, staff shortages, debt, fast pace of life, and other factors all add to the accumulated stress dentists are experiencing. With a wonderful career choice like ours, can’t we enjoy ourselves more and stress less? Are there solutions to improve our quality of life? We will talk about 5 “G’s” that add to stress and 5 “G’s” that can reduce them. These simple ideas are easily attainable by anyone motivated enough to de-stress.

  5. Getting Past "Uh-oh," "No" and Helicopters

    Behavior management in the pediatric dental setting is key to success in both the technical and the social aspects of dental care for children. This session will include videos to illustrate points about managing oneself, the child and the parents.

  6. Health by the Numbers

    Come with your writing device/pen and be willing to examine numerical picture of your health. We will talk numbers beyond height and weight. Is there a way to quantify well-being with numbers? How many vegetables do you really need each day? How do you get enough fiber into your eating? Are you aware of the added sugars you eat? Does it all matter? We will have fun, look at our numbers and strategize next steps. It is important to know where you are in order to move ahead. Shape your trajectory for a life of quality and quantity.

PORTS OF CALL

Port Canaveral, Florida - As the home of Kennedy Space Center, Cape Canaveral is the launching point for all-out adventure in Central Florida. Its beaches offer a mix of family-friendly shores and secluded swaths of sand. And with Orlando’s theme park sprawl only an hour away, you can easily mingle with your favorite characters. Beyond the parks lie equally amusing gems packed with Old Florida character. Kayak past manatees in the Banana River Lagoon and zip line above alligators at Brevard Zoo. Discover notable art museums and Park Avenue’s ritzy charm. Orlando cruises give you access to trace the region’s roots at the Orange County Regional History Museum.

Coco Cay, Bahamas - Located in the middle of the Caribbean's bright blue water lies the secluded island of CocoCay. With its white-sand beaches and spectacular surroundings, CocoCay is a wonderland of adventure. Reserved exclusively for Royal Caribbean guests, this tropical paradise has recently been updated with new aquatic facilities, nature trails and a ton of great places to just sit back, relax and enjoy a tropical drink.

PERFECT DAY COCOCAY

Perfect Day Cococay

At Sea - Cruising - Cruising

Charlotte Amalie, St. Thomas, U.S.V.I. - Named after a Danish Queen, Charlotte Amalie has one of the most breathtaking deepwater harbors in the world. The key sights of Charlotte Amalie are located within the town centre, making it easy to combine sightseeing with St. Thomas’ fantastic shopping opportunities. Eighteenth century architecture provides the perfect backdrop for walking tours and shopping here in the "Duty Free Capital of the World." For a dose of history, visit Emancipation Park, the American-Caribbean History Museum, or Bluebeard the pirate's castle at Magen’s Bay. If tropical bliss is what you're after, head to any of Charlotte Amalie’s pristine beaches, where the warm water, white sands and palm trees will lull you into deep relaxation!

Philipsburg, St. Maarten - The capital of the Dutch side of St. Maarten is the town of Philipsburg, though St. Maarten is an island with two distinct sides. To the north is the French side, whose capital is Marigot, while Philipsburg sits on the southern part of the island. When exploring on cruises that go to St. Maarten, it’s important to visit both sides to understand their customs and heritage.

You’ll quickly be charmed by all sides of the island. Of course, this Caribbean island is best known for its beaches, like Maho Beach or Great Bay Beach, one of the area’s best snorkeling spots. Sample local seafood or rum during your time in port, which have become symbols of St. Maarten life. There’s just enough to fill the day here, especially if you hop between the French and Dutch beaches.
