MEDICAL MANAGEMENT OF DENTAL CARIES FOR CHILDREN AND ADULTS

  • Joel Berg DDS
  • 9:00am-4:30pm
  • Audience:   Entire Dental Team
  • CEU:   3 / 6 hours
  • Reg Code: F01 AM / F01 PM
This lecture will provide the attendee with the most up-to-date information regarding emerging technologies in caries detection and caries risk assessment. Dental care, the most prevalent disease in humans, affects 97% of the population in their lifetime. Yet, dental professionals are still primarily using >100 year-old technologies to diagnose this most prevalent infectious disease. New ways of assessing and dealing with dental caries as an infectious disease have been proposed, and new products have been introduced. This course will review the science behind these developments. In addition, application of these techniques to early intervention protocols including the use of silver diamine fluoride and other agents to mitigate the impact of caries will be described.

Learning Objectives:
• List currently available caries detection devices
• Describe new technologies and how they will detect caries at a very early stage
• Describe methods of risk assessment for dental caries
• Describe the use of silver diamine fluoride and other agents to treat caries lesions

WHY DENTAL TEAMS FAIL

  • Steven J. Anderson
  • 9:00am-4:30pm
  • Audience:   Entire Dental Team
  • CEU:   3 / 6 hours
  • Reg Code: F02 AM / F02 PM
Wouldn`t it be nice if all of your patients walked into your practice knowing exactly what they wanted, were ready to get started, and could afford it all? Providing quality care is a process, not an event. Knowing how to take patients from where they are to where they need to be is a science, not an accident. Patients are getting older, wiser and more demanding as consumers. They expect more. What you used to do yesterday is not going to be enough tomorrow. Today, it starts with a philosophy of care; a philosophy of patient service that takes care of not just their clinical needs, but of their total needs. Come discover the new standard for patient service and patient communication that will have a dramatic impact on your patients, your production, and your teamwork.

Learning Objectives:
• The two personal obstacles that every dentist and team member must fight and win to achieve long term success
• What is Total Patient Service and what can you do to make it happen.
• Why you should never ask a patient what they want until you do this first
• The secret of creating and maintaining team harmony

ETHICS IN DENTISTRY

  • Brett Mangum DDS
  • 1:30pm-4:30pm
  • Audience:   Entire Dental Team
  • CEU:   3 hours
  • Reg Code: F03
Ethics are defined as the set of moral principles that govern a person`s behavior. In the world of dentistry, some might argue that the line between ethical and unethical practices is blurred by gray areas that are open to debate. Some of the common questions regarding dental ethics relate to overtreatment, advertising, and irregularities in billing. Through clinically-relevant and real-world ethics situations, this course will examine and discuss these issues and many others that dental professionals routinely encounter. Additionally, the course will explore how dental providers can protect themselves from the unethical behaviors of others.

AVOIDING RESTORATIVE FAILURE

  • Lee Ann Brady DMD
  • 9:00am-12:00pm
  • Audience:   Entire Dental Team
  • CEU:   3 hours
  • Reg Code: S01
One of the things we dread in dentistry is case failure, and we lose sleep and stomach lining worrying about it. Cases fail for a multitude of reasons; some minor while others can be major disasters. The underlying cause can be esthetic, functional, biologic or sometimes behavioral. A large majority of failures can be predicted before a case begins, but we don`t look for the warning signs. This program will look at risk assessment in all four areas, and present a systematic approach for examination, diagnosis and treatment planning designed to minimize surprises and maximize case success.

Learning Objectives:
• Esthetic Evaluation & Risk Management
• Understanding & Managing Functional Risk
• Managing Caries Risk
• Creating Patient Ownership

DIAGNOSTIC DILEMMAS: THE MANY FACES OF OROFACIAL PAIN

  • Henry Gremillion DDS
  • 9:00am-12:00pm
  • Audience:   Dentists, Hygienists,
  • CEU:   3 hours
  • Reg Code: S02
Differential diagnosis of orofacial pain is an extremely challenging aspect of dental practice. The complexity of neural networks involving the craniocervical area establishes an environment for much diagnostic confusion. Additionally, a number of conditions exist which share common symptoms or may mimic odontogenic pain. Appropriate treatment and/or referral is dependent upon accurate identification of these diseases, syndromes, or clinical conditions. This program will provide a review of current basic concepts of pain mechanisms, pathways, and referral patterns in the head and neck.

Learning Objectives:
• Develop an enhanced understanding of the tremendous pain referral capacity of the trigeminal system
• Recognize conditions that may mimic neuropathic, odontogenic, and/or neurovascular pain sources
• Be able to communicate across disciplines regarding differential diagnostic dilemmas of the trigeminal system
• Understand the significant impact of occlusal parafunction on stability of the masticatory system

ETHICS IN DENTISTRY (Repeat of Fri AM Session)

  • Brett Mangum DDS
  • 9:00am-12:00pm
  • Audience:   Dentists, Hygienists,
  • CEU:   3 hours
  • Reg Code: S03
Although implant dentistry is considered one of the most predictable treatments we offer, guaranteeing optimal anterior implant esthetics is tricky and often feels challenging to create predictably. This program will look at the steps in differentiating high risk versus low risk anterior implant cases when it comes to final esthetics. We will also look at how to optimize the esthetics outcomes starting with pre-surgical augmentation, fixture position and advanced implant prosthetic techniques to make success predictable.

Learning Objectives:
• Anterior implant treatment planning, surgical and prosthetic
• Creating the optimal anterior implant site
• Surgical management for optimal esthetics
• Advanced implant prosthetic techniques
• Fabricating custom implant provisionals

MASTERING ANTERIOR IMPLANT ESTHETICS

  • Lee Ann Brady DMD
  • 1:30pm-4:30pm
  • Audience:   Dentists,
  • CEU:   3 hours
  • Reg Code: S04

THE DYNAMICS AND FUNCTION OF THE MASTICATORY SYSTEM: THE MULTIPLE (INTER)FACES OF OCCLUSION

  • Henry Gremillion DDS
  • 1:30pm-4:30pm
  • Audience:   Dentists, Hygienists,
  • CEU:   3 hours
  • Reg Code: S05
The masticatory system functions in a complex, integrated, orthopedic manner. Many different philosophies regarding occlusal function are exposed. It is recognized that long-term orthopedic stability is dependent on the harmonious function of the dentition, hard and soft tissue supporting structures, temporomandibular joint complexes, and the neuromuscular system of the head and neck. Physiologic occlusal function is recognized to be a key component of orthodpedic stability in the masticatory system. A casual relationship between mechanical stresses such as those associated with occlusal parafunction (clenching/bruxing) has been suggested by many. This presentation will include a recommended protocol for patient evaluation.

Learning Objectives:
• Understand the basic principles of anatomy and function of the masticatory system
• Recognize the clinical signs/symptoms of maladaptive occlusion
• Understand the dentist`s role in the diagnosis and management of sleep disturbances, specifically nocturnal bruxism
• Better appreciate the role of occlusal orthoses in patient care
