Lecture title: An Interactive Approach to Pediatric Dentistry Cases

Lecture abstract: Most dental lectures involve a predominantly one-sided experience in which the expert outputs the subject matter to the recipient. While this traditional technique has proven to be an effective method of delivering information to willing participants, audience discussion and participation is often minimal. The interactive approach to lectures, especially those with a focus on presenting clinical cases, can prove to be an engaging alternative to the traditional seminar. The information will be unfolded with the help of the interactive participants, resulting in a more dynamic and exciting exchange of knowledge.

Pediatric dentistry cases will be presented. An interactive discussion regarding diagnosis/treatment modalities will be implemented through a special application on participants mobile phones.
