Wipe/rinse extracted teeth with bleach and store in saline or water to prevent the extracted teeth from drying out.

Participants are welcomed to bring a pediatric case(s) from their practice for group analysis and treatment planning. Information for case review should include case narrative, photos, radiographs, study models as needed.
