Course Overview: 
The implant treatment has been successful with the development of new implant surfaces and treatment protocols. However, recent clinical studies have reported a relatively high failure rate with an accelerated bone loss, peri-implantitis, screw loosening and fracture, crown dislodgement, porcelain fracture, and other biological and mechanical complications.  This presentation will address the key components of implant therapy and focus on the functional and biomechanical aspects of fixed implant-supported prostheses designed to promote the basic principles of implant therapy to enhance the long-term success of implant treatment.  This course will extend the discussion on digital technology with implant therapy and focus on the functional and biomechanical aspects of fixed implant-supported prostheses design to avoid unwanted complications related to the misuse of dental implants.

Course Objectives: 
At the end of the course the participants should be able to understand:
  • Prosthodontic principles of designing fixed implant-supported prosthesis.
  • Functional stability and esthetics of fixed implant-supported prosthesis.
  • Biological and mechanical complications and management of fixed implant-supported prosthesis.

AM Lecture: "Human Trafficking and From Victim to Warrior"

Course Overview:

Morning Course Description: Human trafficking, often referred to as modern-day slavery, involves the use of force, fraud, or coercion to obtain some form of labor or commercial sex act. While there are a number of victims of human trafficking around the world, there are more and more cases of human trafficking being reported in the State of Michigan and our own communities. Traffickers themselves often use threats, intimidation, and violence in order to force victims to do things so the traffickers themselves may benefit.

Included in the course is special guest speaker who is a survivor of human trafficking.


Course Objectives:

  • Understand the types and venues of human trafficking in Michigan or the United States.
  • Identify victims of human trafficking in health care settings. 
  • Identify the warning signs of human trafficking in health care settings for adults and minors. 
  • Identify resources for reporting the suspected victims of human trafficking.
**The AM course fulfills the State of Michigan licensure one time training standards for identifying victims of human trafficking requirement.  A letter of completion will be given.  However, no CE credits will be awarded.

OP301-18 - 45th Moyers Symposium - Effective Efficient and Personalized Orthodontics: Patient-centered Approaches and Innovations  (details)


The 45th Annual Moyers Symposium and the 43rd Annual Moyers Presymposium

The University of Michigan

Effective, Efficient and Personalized Orthodontics:
Patient-centered Approaches and Innovations

March 2-4, 2018

The concept of patient-centered orthodontics is not new. Yet with the push for faster treatment times, there can be a tendency for a “one size fits all” approach. This strategy can lead to successful orthodontic treatment of some, but not all patients. It is timely therefore to update our knowledge of patient tailored orthodontic diagnosis and treatment strategies that foster consistently ideal functional and esthetic occlusions for every patient. The goal of the 45th Annual Moyers Symposium is to provide participants with contemporary information regarding new developments in personalized dentistry and orthodontics. Speakers with a wide variety of expertise will present contemporary customized treatment methods for improved patient outcomes and practitioner satisfaction including incorporation of 3D imaging diagnostic techniques, contemporary soft and hard tissue analyses, computer-aided treatments, utilization of temporary anchorage devices, and the potential use of biomarkers and genetics for improved patient centered diagnoses and efficiency of orthodontic practice.

In addition, the 43rd Annual International Conference on Craniofacial Research (the “Presymposium”) will be held on the Friday before the Moyers Symposium, on March 2, 2018 in the 4th Floor Amphitheater of the Horace H. Rackham Building. The Presymposium conference will feature presentations by speakers and time for discussion of presented topics on goals of and methods for precision dentistry, patient centered orthodontics, and relevant craniofacial research. There is no pre-registration and no charge for attending the Presymposium. You are encouraged to attend both meetings.

As in previous years, the Annual Moyers Symposium honors the late Dr. Robert E. Moyers, Professor Emeritus of Dentistry and Founding Director of the University of Michigan, Center for Human Growth and Development. Of importance this year, the 45th Symposium also honors Dr. Jim McNamara for his 50 years of service to the university, department, program and profession. Please join us at the symposium and at “The Big House” for a reception in honor of this emeritus faculty member, and all our alumni and friends.
