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. 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. 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. 58

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 New York City. Several resident papers have been submitted for publication and several more are in progress. Two faculty members are involved in research projects of their own. 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 Pediatric Dentistry experienced the busiest clinical year in its 50 year history. Clinical visits increased from 34,725 to 35,632, a 3% increase while outpatient surgeries increased 14% from 998 to 1139. We have continued to build on our collaboration with other services. Dr. Marie Callen is our lead professional in this endeavor. She currently serves on the Fanconi Anemia Team Clinic and the newly launched Epidermolysis Bullosa Team Clinic. She also continues her work with the Liver Transplant patients, Cardiac Surgery, and Hematology/Oncology. Her skills and knowledge are a valuable community resource. The adult special needs patient general anesthesia program has completed a successful second year under the leadership of Dr. William Fye. The program provides care for adults who require care in the operating room. The division worked closely with a successful grassroots statewide effort to preserve funding for adult Medicaid dental care. Retaining this funding allows us to continue caring for adult special needs patients on Medicaid. The Children's Dental Care Foundation, a local group of business and professional volunteers that partners with the CCHMC Division of Pediatric Dentistry, had its best fundraising year ever which was a significant accomplishment in light of the economy and the international political situation.


The CCHMC Pursuing Perfection Program was implemented this year and continues to evolve as we work as a group to improve the care we provide and the satisfaction of our parents, guardians, and patients. We successfully recruited a new pediatric dentist for our Mason office. Dr. Hayley Heckman finished her training at Riley Children's Hospital prior to joining our group. The summer dental extern program which offers senior dental students a rotation in our dental service hosted 6 students, the most ever. The students come from dental schools around the country. The annual division continuing education program was well attended with over 100 local and regional oral health professionals participating in the half day session. Several members of the division made live television appearances on WCPO's Health Matters segment and participated in WCIN radio's Soulful Health broadcast. Dr. Murray Dock was an invited speaker at the Riley Children's Hospital in Indianapolis. Dr. James Steiner spoke at the Indiana Pediatrics Association Annual Meeting, was a Visiting Professor at the Riley Children's Hospital Pediatric Residency Program, and spoke in San Diego at a national program sponsored by the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry. Iris Sageser served on a Craniofacial Team Panel at the American Cleft Palate Association Meeting in Ashville, North Carolina.
