Management of Patients with Oligodontia

Dr Steve Singer  |  OrthodontistS Singer 17.12.15

Patients with oligodontia present with six or more congenitally missing permanent teeth. Management requires interdisciplinary treatment which frequently requires orthodontic preparation for future prosthodontic intervention to replace the absent permanent teeth. General dental back up by members of the dental team is also required to maintain ongoing dental health. This presentation describes the management pathway of patients with oligodontia currently under treatment at the Dental Department of Princess Margaret Hospital.

Dr Steven Singer is a specialist orthodontist in Private practice and a visiting consultant to the Cleft Lip and palate clinic and Cranio Maxillofacial Unit at PMH.  He has a special interest in treating children with facial clefts and congenitally missing permanent teeth.  He is a member of the ADA, Australian Society of Orthodontists and the Australian Cleft Lip and palate Association.

Paramedics can be exposed to a significantly diverse array of patient conditions, environments and situations. This presentation will provide a snap shot into the profession of a Paramedic, what it is that they see and their scope of practice. Phip will provide a brief overview of St John Ambulance WA along with how they manage significant trauma, stepping you through each phase from first arriving on the scene, to handing over the patient to the receiving hospital emergency department.

My Story

I have been working as a Paramedic with St John Ambulance WA for eight years, predominately in the Perth area with brief periods in Geraldton. I have travelled to the UK and Canada to gain an insight into the London and Vancouver Ambulance Service and I have been involved in the training of new Ambulance Officers. I am currently working in a liaison role with the Royal Flying Doctor Service.

Prior to this I was employed at Presbyterian Ladies’ College running the Outdoor Education program. I have also been a mountaineering guide in the French and Swiss Alps, worked in collaboration with Rural Health West to expose medical and allied health students to practicing in rural and remote areas, and I have picked grapes in the Margaret River wine region! I have travelled extensively, I enjoy partaking in gruelling adventure races and I am a farm girl at heart.

Pain is often the most common driving force for seeking dental treatment in an emergency outpatient setting. While dental caries is the main aetiological cause, several unusual presentations and its management will be discussed.

Despite clincians’ best efforts in providing care, sometimes the unexpected happens. Several interesting cases will be shared, emphasizing the need for careful planning and interdisciplinary management.
