The Dynamic Duo: Pedo-Endo Crossover Conversations – Ep. 46
The dental world is changing fast and interdisciplinary conversations are consistently more present in clinical and academic discussions. Pediatric endodontist Dr. Julianna Bair decided to capitalize on the intersectionality of these specialties … essentially ensuring proper management of any case she encounters. In this episode, we take a dichotomous journey that elucidates various considerations within this unique space addressing the age-old question: “Parents in or out of the room?” Dr. Bair enlightens us with her hypotheses on the potency of contemporary nitrous and prioritizing IV sedation and why. The comparisons between the specialties in terms of patient management have vast overlap, but a distinction for pharmacological dosing becomes clear as Dr. Bair displays her mathematical wizardry and rattles off antibiotic conversions and formulas for the pediatric patient. Pedo-endo is no child’s play, but with her vibrant and lighthearted demeanor, Dr. Bair gives the impression it definitely is a lot of fun!
