Course Title:    
Jarabak Lecture 2015: Miniplate Anchorage for Midface Protraction in Class III Patients and Molar Distalization in Class II Malocclusions

Course Date: April 24, 2015 (Friday) 


Featured Speaker:

Dr. Hugo De Clerck, DMD, PhD

Dr. Hugo De Clerck is a graduate of the Rijksuniversiteit Gent’s orthodontic program, he received his PhD in 1986 and he maintains a private practice in Brussels.  He has been Professor and Chairperson of the Department of Orthodontics at the Université Catholique de Louvain from 1989 to 2006.  Currently he’s an Adjunct Professor at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.  He’s a former President of the Belgian Orthodontic Society and Fellow of the Royal College of Surgeons of England.  His main research interests are in skeletal anchorage, biomechanics and orthopedics.  


Course Description:

Miniplates are better able resist and endure high discontinuous forces than do miniscrews.  Therefore they are well suited for use for orthopedic intermaxillary traction such as Class III elastics utilized between minplates placed on the skeletal bases of the maxilla and mandible of growing patients.  Dr. De Clerck will address several questions during his presentation on the use of Bollard miniplate anchors to correct Class III malocclusions.  These include: (1) Can the growth of the maxilla and/or mandible be stimulated, restricted or redirected by such intermaxillary orthopedics using miniplates?  (2) What is the optimal biomechanical approach to achieve success?  (3) What is the best loading protocol?   Furthermore, since successful class III orthopedics often results in a Class II malocclusion, the use of miniplates in achieving the desired final treatment objectives will also be explained.  This involves the use of appropriate biomechanics in conjunction with the miniplates as anchors to distalize the upper molars and to open space for the eruption of the canines.  For optimal efficiency good control of the vertical dimension is needed and also provided by the miniplates.

A455-15 - Dental Hygiene Study Club May & October 2015
 (details)

Course Number: A455-15               
Two Courses for the Price of One!


DAY ONE

Course Title: "2015 Dental Hygiene CE Club: Oral Health & Oral Health Care - How Does Gender Matter?"



Course Date:    
May 15, 2015

Course Speakers: 
Dr. Marita R. Inglehart
Dr. Eugene Ko
Dr. Carol Anne Murdoch-Kinch
Dr. Stephen Rassi
Dr. Domenica Sweier
Dr. Susan Taichman

Course Overview:
This course has an interdisciplinary team of researchers and dental educators will explore how gender affects dental patients' general health, oral health, oral health care needs and interactions with their dental care providers.  The morning session starts with an overview of gender differences in systemic and oral health, followed by an oral pathologist's perspective on gender differences and oral health concerns.  Two specific issues: Providing care for breast cancer survivors and for patients with eating disorders.

The afternoon session begins with a discussion of how patients' and the providers gender affects their interactions in the dental office.  Two content-specific presentations follow.  The first presentation focuses on depression which is twice as prevalent among women compared to men. The final presentation of the day offers an introduction to providing care for transgender patients by a therapist and researcher specialized in working with transgender patients.

Course Objectives:

At the completion of this course participants will have an increased understanding of the role of depression for patients' oral health and health care. Also, participants will have an increased understanding of the prevalence of low oral health literacy among the adult U.S. population, how to assess it, which consequences it has for patients' oral health and oral health-related behavior and how to communicate successfully with patients with low oral health literacy skills to avoid communication breakdowns.



DAY TWO


Course Title:
"2015 Dental Hygiene CE Club: Oral Health Literacy, Motivational Communication and Tobacco Cessation Counseling in the Dental Office


Course Date:
October 2, 2015

Course Speakers:
Dr. Marita R. Inglehart
Prof. Janet S. Kinney, RDH
Dr. Carol Anne Murdoch-Kinch
Dr. David Tindle

Course Overview:
The morning session introduces the participants to the topic of oral health literacy and how a motivational communication approach can prevent communication breakdowns.  Constructive communication among dental patients and providers is the basis for effective patient care. Avoiding communication breakdowns with the large percentage of patients with low oral health literacy skills is therefore crucial. This workshop introduces the participants to the topic of oral health literacy and how it affects patients’ oral health, increases their dental fear and influences their oral health-related behavior, such as making them more likely to miss their own appointments and their children’s.

The afternoon session applies the materials discussed in the morning session to efforts related to tobacco
cessation counseling. An introductory lecture will provide an overview of how the use of tobacco products
affects patients' general and oral health and which tobacco cessation efforts are most successful. A specific introduction to pharmacological approaches to tobacco cessation efforts will follow.  The focus of this presentation
is to inform the participants about which medications are available and how to determine which patients might benefit from these medications.  The final presentation provides a hands-on training of how to engage patients in motivational
communication related to tobacco cessation efforts.  Videotaped patient-provider interactions will be used to demonstrate this approach.

Course Objectives:
At the completion of this course participants will have an increased understanding of how to engage in motivational
communication with their patients.  They will specifically have a sound understanding of the importance of content considerations as well as process considerations related to motivational communication. 

Participants will also have an increased knowledge concerning:

  • How the use of tobacco products affects patients' general and oral health and which approaches to tobacco cessation counseling are most effective.
  • Which pharmacological approaches are available and which medications can be supportive of tobacco cessation efforts.
  • How to collect the necessary information from patients about their use of tobacco products to allow a tailored approach to counseling
  • How to use motivational communication strategies to increase patients' willingness to consider/engage in tobacco cessation related efforts.
