DAY ONE

Course Titles:

“What is it? How Do I Use it?: Today's Dental Products and Treatment Options”

                                                     


Course Date:
    
May 12, 2017

Course Speaker: 
Tricia Osuna, RDH, BSDH, FAADH



Course Overview:

Today’s dental sessions require an exhaustive knowledge of products, instruments and equipment.  As professionals providing health services, we should be at the pulse of clinical devices and treatment, while being able to recommend product protocols for use in the office.

 

The process of care (assessment, diagnosis, treatment planning, implementation and evaluation) requires us to understand what these products are, how to use them, contemporary treatment options, how to implement the procedures and evaluate what is and what is not working for us as individuals and as clinicians.  We will also discuss ergonomic options to protect ourselves as clinicians.

Course Objectives:
Upon the completion of this course, the participant will be able to: 

  • Recognize improvements on products utilized by dental professionals
  • Distinguish which new-to-market products should be brought into your practice
  • Select materials and products for dental hygiene therapy, oral cancer screening, patient communication and instrumentation
  • Discuss diagnosis assistance with employers and rationale for changes in assessment forms and diagnostic tools
  • Communicate effectively to patients and assist in the business of the dental practice
  • Recognize and evaluate changes to implement in the office
  • Discuss strategies that incorporate efficiency in patient treatment for a more productive schedule

DAY TWO


Course Titles: 

“I Haven't Got Time for this Pain”

  (morning session)
      "Top of the Heap"
(afternoon session)
Course Date:
September 29, 2017

Course Speaker: 
Thomas Viola, R.Ph, C.C.P. 



(Morning Session)
Course Overview: 
Management of pain during dental procedures is accomplished with the use of local anesthetics.  Due to their potential for producing life-threatening systemic adverse reactions, a thorough knowledge of the pharmacology of these agents is essential for their safe and effective use.  This program will provide participants with an overview of the pharmacology and therapeutics of local anesthetic agents and opioid and non-opioid analgesics commonly administered in dental practice. 

Course Objectives:
Upon the completion of this course, the participant will be able to:
  • 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.
  • Describe the pharmacology and mechanism of action of non-opioid and opioid analgesics, including their therapeutic effects, as well as their potential for abuse.
  • Use case scenarios to develop a pain management plan based upon a patients needs and underlying medical conditions.

(Afternoon Session)
Course Overview:
Faced with a marketplace awash in direct-to-consumer advertising of prescription drugs and an explosion of new drug entities over the last several years, many dental professionals may find it challenging to stay up to date with the latest prescribing trends in disease state management. This program will provide an overview of those frequently prescribed brand name medications whose actions, side effects, contraindications and potential drug interactions may have the greatest impact on dental therapy. 

Course Objectives:
Upon the completion of this course, the participant will be able to:

  • Identify the most frequently prescribed FDA-approved brand name medications
  • Review the basic mechanism of action, principle therapeutic indications, and potential adverse reactions and drug interactions of these medications
  • Define cardiopulmonary diseaese and review the classes of medications used in their treatment, including new anticoagulant and antiplatelet agents
  • Discuss the clinical dental considerations of these medications and their potential impact on dental therapy

AM Lecture- How Crown Lengthening Will Enhance your Restorative Results

Course Overview:
Frustrated getting good impressions due to deep caries or fractures?  Planning aesthetic restorations and dealing with a "Gummy Smile?"  Experience an in-depth look at the concepts and applications for both Posterior and Anterior Crown Lengthening.  Learn indications and contraindications, plus key concepts like Biologic Width as it applies to improving restorative results.  You will see how soft tissue management alone is not enough, and how bone management is a key to success.  Learn to coordinate with your Periodontics and Laboratory Technician to create a team approach and better results. 


Course Objectives:

• How to achieve predictable impressions
• The  causes of red gums around crowns
• Why crowns come loose and what to do
• Gummy smiles or uneven gingiva in anterior


PM Lecture- Managing Periodontal Disease in a Predictable and Minimally Invasive Way

Course Overview:
This presentation will discuss a scientifically sound, and evidence based, approach for effective control of limited OR advanced periodontal disease using minimally invasive surgical intervention, or with scaling and root planning alone and no flap surgery. Both indications will be explained.  


It shows how adding chemotherapeutic methods to specifically target the periodontal bacteria will allow for successful management of everything from very advanced cases that might otherwise have been treated only with extraction, to infected cases you might traditionally treat with non-surgical methods.  In doing so, results will be improved over classic surgical or SCRP methods which may not kill all bacteria at the diseased sites.  These innovative methods will be explained by outlining both in-office procedures, as well as specific anti-microbial procedures for the patient to do at home. When combined, they yield predictable clinical results for previously failing cases as well as those treated for the first time. 

Treatment will be illustrated with clinical photos and radiographs, including clinical applications in dogs that also show excellent results. Cases will be shown and literature quoted to validate the procedures, including videos of live bacteria.

Course Objectives

• Learn an evidence based approach for effective control of periodontal disease. Methods from Scaling and Root Planning to Flap Surgery are covered.
• Understand why Surgery or SCRP may fail
• By targeting the bacteria specifically, and employing chemotherapeutic methods, get better healing and longer lasting results. 
• Learn to manage failed or failing cases
• Learn role of patient care at home as an integral part of treatment
