ICPPD Is Now the Institute for Paediatric Dentistry

New name reflects curriculum expansion into practice management


The Institute for the Clinical Practice of Paediatric Dentistry (ICPPD) has changed its named to the Institute for Paediatric Dentistry (IPD). The rationale for the name change is to better reflect the evolving content of the Institute’s courses.

“As part of our ongoing effort to provide the most relevant and practical paediatric dentistry training, we survey our participants immediately following each course,” said Mr. Mark Binford, IPD Director. “While the doctors tell us they love our clinical training, they’ve also asked us to expand into additional topics including practice management.”

As an example, IPD is offering a new standalone course – “Game Changers for Dental Assistants” – in conjunction with its next dentist’s course, “Game Changers in Paediatric Dentistry”.

The new course is specifically designed to enable dental assistants to become high-performance contributors to the dental team. Both courses will take place on October 7 and 8 at UNLV’s SimLab in Las Vegas. Dentists earn a total of 20 CE credits while dental assistants earn 16 CE credits. – The Institute for Paediatric Dentistry
