He also completed his postgraduate training in Prosthodontics and Masters Degree in Oral Rehabilitation from the same school in 2003. In 2008 he finished his PhD in Genomic Sciences and Biotechnology at the Catholic University of Brasília, Brazil. Dr. Mendonça was an Assistant Professor in the Department of Prosthodontics at Catholic University of Brasília - School of Dentistry with an extra-mural private practice from 2003-2007. Post-doctoral research training at University of North Carolina Department of Prosthodontics in the Bone and Mineralization Laboratory from 2008 to 2010. From 2010 to 2014 he was Assistant Professor at UNC-Department of Prosthodontics.

Dr. Mendonça has been a faculty member at UM-School of Dentistry since 2014 where he practices and teaches all phases of Prosthodontics. He has presented many lectures and continuing education courses internationally and he has published over 20 scientific articles and 110 abstracts, and has co-written 8 textbook chapters. He participates actively in laboratory and clinical research with focus on dental implants osseointegration. Clinical research interests include replacing missing teeth with dental implants; failures and complications with implant supported prostheses and evaluating the longevity of implant treatment and CAD/CAM restorations.

Dr. Mendonça is also member of several professional organizations including the International Association for Dental Research and the Academy of Osseointegration. He serves as manuscript reviewer for several scientific publications such as the International Journal of Oral and Maxillofacial Implants, Expert Review of Medical Devices, Biomaterials, Journal of Biomedical Materials Research, Materials and Manufacturing Processes, Materials Science & Engineering. C, Biomimetic Materials, Sensors and System.


Course Overview

This course we will present and discuss the most common problems that occur with implant-supported restorations.  We will discuss the available treatment options and so lutions for totally and partially endentulous and single-tooth cases.  The most common complications are loosening or fracture, problems with prosthesis misfit, non-passive fit, peri-implantitis and aesthetic related issues.  In most cases, these failures and complications are easy to resolve and demand a well-defined occlusion and replacement of the prosthesis.  On the other hand, in a few cases, it takes longer to manage the problem and may require placing new implants and modifying prosthesis designs.  


Course Objectives
After completion of this continuing education course, the participant will be exposed to: Understand failures and complications related to implant-supported prostheses.  Identify the reason why these failures and complications occur. Discuss possible treatment options.   This CE course includes didactic lectures to help understand failures and complications related to restoration of dental implants.

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.

Ste
ve McEvoy   


Mr. McEvoy is an IT professional and Project Manager working for MME Consulting, Inc., a computer company that specializes in serving Orthodontic Practices in the US and Canada.  He has 15+ years working hands-on with the technologies used in Orthodontic Practices.  Steve is currently serving as a member of the AAO Committee on Technology (CTech).

Jarabak Lecture Summary
Computer Technology is pervasive in the modern dental, orthodontic and other dental specialty practices.  Computers, WiFi, and the Internet in these practices are the enablers not only for traditional local applications, but also for an ever expanding and increasingly bewildering array of Cloud based services.  Given the ever-changing nature of the digital 
environment, it is becoming increasingly difficult for the practitioner to gauge what is needed and what truly makes sense to incorporate into a practice. Mr. McEvoy’s talk will provide the needed insights on computer innovations and their pragmatic uses to enhance the efficiency and security of your practice.  Because of the universal relevance of this information, the material presented will be applicable to dentists and dental specialists.

Lecture Objectives 

Participants will learn about: 
  • ‘The Cloud’ – What the heck is it and why would a dentist or specialist care?
  • Internet Backup – Is it time to add this to your backup strategy?
  • How $100 can make your existing PC faster than ever
  • Ransomware – How the hackers are becoming billionaires encrypting your Practice data and holding it for ransom
  • Protecting yourself from internal attacks – Who needs hackers when we have a disgruntled employee?
  • 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 without being ripped off when buying that next computer for your home or Dental Practice
  • Cool Technology Tips & Tricks to help you make the most of what you already have
  •  …. and more
