The afternoon session begins with a discussion of current scientific literature and evidenced-based strategies to provide clinicians practical guidelines regarding the selection of proper tips for thorough debridement and biofilm removal and conclude by providing the dental professional with the information necessary to make an anesthetic choice based on each patient’s needs.

Course Objectives:

At the completion of this course, the participant will be able to describe current trends, types and techniques used in coronal polishing as well as be able to implement the current CDC guidelines for handpiece sterilization.   
The participant will know how to compare and contrast standard, slim, and modified curved inserts.  The participant will also be able to identify local anesthetic complications, evaluate local anesthetic drugs to include; topical, injectable and non-injectable, review signs and symptoms of anesthetic overdose drugs and preview new anesthetic technologies.

DAY TWO


Course Title: 

“Evidence-Based Periodontal Strategies – Conquering the Unseen Enemy”



Course Date:
September 30, 2016

Course Speaker: 
Dianne Glasscoe-Watterson, RDH, BS, MBA



Course Overview: 
Periodontal diseases are multi-factorial, chronic infections that cause destruction of periodontal structures.  This course examines the latest evidence-based information related to patient care protocol, including (but not limited to) pathogenicity, disease progression considerations, patient classification, pain control modalities, traditional and novel treatment sequence and protocol, and documentation of periodontal care. Also covered are periodontal maintenance strategies and liability risk/informed refusal.

Course Objectives:
Upon completion of this course, the attendee should be able to understand the role of the host and microbes in disease etiology and inflammation, implement evidence-based treatment strategies, proper aerosol control procedures and effective sequencing protocol for the periodontal patient and understand proper documentation and the liability risks associated with refusal of definitive care.

·         Simple Steps towards Security – a collection of easy to implement tactics that help protect your Practice from       hacks and help you with HIPAA.

·         Safe Surfing – Personal Surfing by the staff is the primary cause of Spyware getting into the Practice computers – what can we do about it?

·         Buying Guide – advice on how to get just what you need while avoiding getting ripped off buying that next computer for your home or Practice.

Course Title:  Using Modern Material Science & Technology to Enhance Restorative Success for Indirect Restorations
Course Date: September 23, 2016 (Friday)

Course Speaker: Sabiha S. Bunek, DDS, Editor-in-Chief of THE DENTAL ADVISOR

  • How to select the best indirect restorative material for different clinical situations to satisfy objectives of both strength and esthetics.  
  • Understand why and when to use surface treatments (primers, silane, and bonding agents) for different ceramics. 
  • Discuss why zirconia is increasing in popularity.
  • Explain the rationale for cement selection, and review new resin cements on the market.
