Restorative Dentistry and Materials OVERVIEW The division was formally founded in 1955 when Children's Hospital established an affiliation with a local group of Cincinnati citizens, The Children's Dental Care Foundation. The division has grown and prospered and is now nationally and internationally recognized for its excellent residency training program and clinical program. 62
  2. 2. The training program, located on the Clifton Campus, accepts five residents each year and has a total of ten residents. Extensive clinical experience is provided in child behavior management, sedation, patient care in the operating room, special needs patients, interceptive orthodontics, emergency care, disease prevention, craniofacial care, and well child care. A didactic program, provided by the faculty and consultants, supports the clinical experience and includes seminars, lectures, case presentations, and one on one teaching in the clinic and operating room. Left to right: I. Sageser, M. Dock, M. Callen, R. Campbell, J. Steiner, W. Greenhill Each faculty member maintains a clinical practice and each has special interests. The faculty group provides expertise in cleft lip and palate orthopedics in neonates, orthodontic care for patients with craniofacial conditions, oral care for burn patients, infant dental care, patients with special medical, physical, or mental challenges, and dento-alveolar trauma. Specialty clinics meet monthly in the division and include endodontics, periodontics, esthetics, and oral surgery. A weekly hematology clinic is staffed in the outpatient hematology clinic. The division operates four off campus offices in Cincinnati suburban locations to provide dental care in the community. Each office employs a pediatric dentist, a full support staff and delivers comprehensive dental care. The Children's Dental Care Foundation (CDCF) remains affiliated with the division and raises funds to support patient care, education, and research. Research development continues to move forward. Our residents presented a poster at the national meeting in Denver. Several resident papers have been submitted for 63

The Craniofacial Team, a multidisciplined group, meets regularly in the division and provides comprehensive care in one location. Patients are cared for from birth to young adulthood. Specialists include audiology, dentistry, genetics, language disorders, nutrition, oral surgery, orthodontics, otolaryngology, pediatrics, plastic surgery, and psychology. The team is a leader regionally and has an excellent national reputation. HIGHLIGHTS The Division of Dentistry was named a business unit by CCHMC leadership and will be meeting with them three times a year to report on division activity. On the clinical side, a partnership was begun with cardiology to ensure that children scheduled for cardiac surgery have no dental disease. The division is also developing a relationship with dermatology to provide dental care for children with epidermolysis bullosa. A program to provide dental care under general anesthesia for mentally and physically challenged adults completed its first year. Dr. Amy Maher was recruited to fill a position at the OP Anderson office and Dr. William Greenhill earned his board certification from the American Board of Pediatric Dentistry. The division continuing education program set a record for attendance with over one hundred local and regional oral health professionals participating. The same speaker delivered Grand Rounds the following day and received an award for his outstanding educational presentation. Finally, the Children's Dental Care Foundation successfully completed the first year of a new strategic plan which significantly increased funds to perform the Foundation's mission.
