Mom, My Mouth Hurts! Ulcers, Trauma and Other Painful Oral Conditions in the Pediatric Population


Kathleen Schultz, DMD

Dr. Schultz received her dental degree from the University of Connecticut School of Dental Medicine. She completed a residency in oral and maxillofacial pathology at Long Island Jewish Medical Center and is a Diplomate of the American Board of Oral and Maxillofacial Pathology. She has also completed a residency in pediatric dental medicine at Cohen Children’s Medical Center. She is a full time attending in oral and maxillofacial pathology and pediatric dentistry at Long Island Jewish Medical Center. In addition to managing clinical practices in pediatric dentistry and pediatric oral pathology, she also teaches residents in both disciplines and participates in the surgical pathology service.

Teaching has been at the forefront of her educational career, and she has provided lectures for residents and attendings in various disciplines of dentistry and medicine. She has participated in case presentations and clinico-pathologic forums at the annual meetings for the American Academy of Oral and Maxillofacial Pathology, as well as a Gemini presentation on the multidisciplinary diagnosis and management of a case of scurvy in a pediatric patient at Cohen Children’s Medical Center.

Her interest is on clinical and radiographic presentations of common and uncommon oral pathology in pediatric patients, notably those with syndromes and complex medical conditions.


Course Description:

The etiology of oral pain in children can be difficult to diagnose. Traumatic or factitial oral injuries are very common in the pediatric population, yet the clinical presentation and clinical history can be murky and full of red herrings. Parents are often highly concerned that there is something more ominous occurring and seek the expertise of their pediatrician or their dentist. Acute oral infections, whether viral, odontogenic, bacterial or otherwise can have overlapping signs and symptoms, with significant treatment implications. Finally, conditions with systemic involvement should be considered in patients complaining of long-standing oral ulcers.  This lecture will discuss the range of oral ulcers and common and uncommon sources of oral pain in the pediatric population, as well as management and treatment recommendations. This lecture pertains to all clinical practitioners who have pediatric patients.


  1. Review the differential diagnosis of oral pain, ulcers and systemic ulcerative conditions in pediatric patients.
  2. Develop an algorithm for the differential diagnoses based on clinical history and clinical presentation.
  3. Discuss workup and management of oral pain and oral ulcers.
