“Biologics in Everyday Practice Including Soft Tissue Applications”

This presentation is graciously co-sponsored by 
STRAUMANN USA LLC

In today’s economy patients are looking for long-term, predictable results when making decisions on treatment options. Early detection is key when treating any disease process especially in the treatment of periodontal disease to keep your dentistry looking greater longer. Collaboration among the entire dental team is elementary to increased case acceptance. Regenerative therapies have significantly impacted clinical practice on a number of levels. Building upon bone grating and guided tissue regeneration techniques, emphasis will be placed on biologic modifiers, particularly enamel matrix derivative. This discussion will focus on regeneration vs. repair and the role of these progressive therapies in the decision making process. Evidenced-based research and clinical cases will be presented.

Learning Objectives:
• History of periodontal disease and non-surgical therapies
• Case presentation and case acceptance
• Repair vs. regeneration therapies
• Use of biologic mediators for hard and soft tissue regeneration
• Review of research studies

“A Revolution in Root Canal Therapy”

This presentation is graciously co-sponsored by
SONENDO

Over the past 50 years, endodontic treatment has become more efficient and predictable, partly due to advances in technology. This is an example of what is commonly referred to as incremental innovation, when newer technology is introduced to improve aspects of an existing product or technique. The Gentle Wave technology is radically different. This technology is significantly more effective than conventional endodontic treatment in certain cases, including re-treatments, treatment of teeth with complex anatomies, and teeth with varying degrees of cracks.

This lecture is an introduction to this disruptive technology. A comprehensive description of the technology, along with the science behind the technology will be discussed. The second half of this lecture consists of clinical cases with a 12 month recall period, highlighting some of the benefits of this technology.

Course Objectives:
1. Understanding the limitations present with current irrigation protocols during RCT
2. The benefit of activating solutions to enhance irrigations
3. Basic understanding of the Gentle Wave technique

Un-Break My Heart
”Cardiovascular Disease, Dental Considerations and Patient Care Planning”

This presentation is graciously co-sponsored by
CREST ORAL-B

Cardiovascular disease is one of the major diseases affecting adults in the United States. While mortality from heart disease has been declining steadily recently, hospital admissions related to cardiovascular disease are on the rise, due, in part to our aging population. Hypertension remains one of the major risk factors for heart failure in men and women. It is often asymptomatic and many times may only be discovered at a routine check-up with a medical or dental professional.

This program will provide an overview of cardiovascular disease and the medications used in its treatment. Using case scenarios, special emphasis will be given to developing patient management strategies essential for successful treatment planning and proper care of our medically compromised patients.

Learning Objectives:
• Discuss the family of cardiovascular diseases and the complex interplay with systemic inflammation and co-morbid diseases.
• Review the classes of medications used in the treatment of hypertension along with their pharmacologic effects, adverse reactions and dental implications.
• Discuss the mechanism of action of anticoagulants and anti-platelet agents including their adverse reactions and patient care considerations.
• Describe the treatment modifications and care planning strategies recommended for dental patients with cardiovascular disease.

“Local Anesthetics, Vasoconstrictors and Clinical Dental Considerations”

Management of odontogenic pain may be accomplished through a clinical approach that successfully incorporates intra-operative local anesthesia. However, improper and inappropriate use of local anesthetic agents has the potential to produce life-threatening, systemic adverse reactions. Thus, a thorough knowledge of the pharmacology and therapeutics of local anesthetic agents is essential for their safe an effective use.

This program will provide participants with an overview of local anesthetic agents commonly used in dental practice. Using case scenarios, special emphasis will be given to developing strategies and techniques essential to accurately identify the need for pain control, individualize patient care, and assess the efficacy of the local anesthetic agents administered.

Learning Objectives:
Upon successful completion of this program, participants will be able to:
• Explain the basic mechanism of action of local anesthetic agents.
• Differentiate between the two major classes of local anesthetic agents with respect to their distribution, metabolism, adverse effects, drug interactions and contraindications.
• Discuss the rationale for the use of vasoconstrictors in local anesthetic solutions and their potential effects in common organ system disease states.
• Specify the various local anesthetic agent combinations most commonly used in dentistry and the rationale for their use in specific clinical situations.

HURTS SO GOOD!
“Management of Acute Dental Pain and Appropriate Prescribing Practices”

Management of acute dental pain is accomplished through a clinical approach that successfully incorporates opioid and non-opioid analgesics. However, this normally occurs outside the dental office, away from our immediate supervision and we are often faced with the difficult task of managing patient pain while also avoiding adverse outcomes for both our patient and our communities. Thus, it is critical for clinicians to accurately identify the need for pain control, individualize patient care identify associated risks and assess the efficacy of the local anesthetic and analgesic agents to be administered.

This program will provide an overview of the effective management of acute dental pain. Using case scenarios, special emphasis will be given to appropriate prescribing practices for analgesics.

Learning Objectives:
Upon successful completion of this program participants will be able to:
• Describe the pharmacology and mechanism of action of opioid and non-opioid analgesics, as well as their potential abuse.
Explain the intended role of opioid and non-opioid analgesics in the treatment of acute dental pain, as well as situations that may preclude their use.
• Describe strategies useful in developing a pain management plan that is individualized for a patients’ needs and underlying medical conditions.
• Discuss appropriate prescribing practices for opioid and non-opioid analgesics to utilize in everyday clinical situations.

“Taming the Overhead Beast”

Overhead. That evil monster that will quietly eat up your gross collections until nothing is left for you to take home. It’s so dangerous because it’s often invisible. You get peeks of the overhead monster when you see a stack of bills on your desk or somehow lose money doing a case. In this course we’ll expose your overhead wherever it’s hiding, develop systems to keep it in check, and suggest a method for evaluating fees. We’ll also find ways to improve clinical efficiency without sacrificing quality of patient care.

TOPICS TO INCLUDE:
• Calculating practice overhead and comparing it to national averages
• Trouble shooting ways to adjust practice systems to improve overhead percentages
• Analyzing procedure costs
• Restorative procedures that maintain or improve patient care while still helping your bottom line
