Patients with Autism Spectrum
Disorders present challenging behaviors in the dental setting that can interrupt
or prevent delivery of dental services. Traditionally, patients with special
health care needs have been treated using advanced behavior guidance techniques
including conscious sedation and general anesthesia. However, Applied Behavior
Analysis (ABA) is a new behavioral approach that has demonstrated successful
outcomes in guiding and shaping the behavior of patients. During this webinar,
experts from Nova Southeastern University College of Dental Medicine (NSU CDM) will
share how they have successfully used ABA interventions in the dental setting.
