TOPICS AVAILABLE

"The 21st Century Clinician - Staying Relevant in a Fast Changing World"

Whether it’s related to diagnostics, clinical dentistry, or indirect lab procedures, it’s hard to ignore the fact that technology affects us all in one way or another. There are many well-established, evidenced-based principles that guide our clinical decisions. However, science and technology have advanced and it’s important for dentists to understand how they can best utilize these technologies to enhance patient care.

Participants will be exposed to a variety of technologies to facilitate diagnosis and treatment of everyday dentistry and beyond. We will discuss a variety of scanning technologies and cad/cam options to show how they can be easily implemented. Lab communication and digital smile design workflows will be presented using clinical cases. Materials and product updates will be a part of this program. Participants will be shown ways to implement a variety of technologies in a convenient manner at your own pace. Participation of team members would be beneficial to help with implementation of many of these concepts and technologies.

This half-day lecture may be combined with a hands-on portion with digital technologies to create a full day program.

"THE EVOLUTION OF A COMPREHENSIVE CARE DENTIST – Trials, Tribulations and Successes"

From the day we graduated from dental school we received the skills to treat teeth and fix specific problems. Most of us never received the tools to look at the big picture and understand why dentition and supporting structures can break down or fail. These skills aren’t easily learned and require a thirst for knowledge, great mentors and the ability to look the big picture and not the individual parts. Most of us are good “single-tooth” or “reparative dentists,” but few are good “interdisciplinary” dentists. This lecture will take you through the evolution from a being a tooth-by-tooth dentist to a comprehensive interdisciplinary dentist. It’s not a daunting task, but there can be challenges along the way. The journey is definitely worth it and your patient care and personal fulfillment will be enhanced. Participants will be taken through a series of real-life, everyday cases to highlight concepts being presented.

This half-day lecture may be combined with other lectures to create a full day program.

"INTERDISCIPLINARY CARE & COMPLEX TREATMENT PLANNING"

With our aging demographic more people present with aesthetic, functional and occlusal problems that require extensive treatment. You will be shown practical concepts on staging treatment to allow for comprehensive work to be done at the patient’s pace and budget. Learn how proper pre-prosthetic planning & interdisciplinary communication can lead to long-term stability while utilizing conservative and minimally invasive procedures. We will spend interactive time treatment planning some cases as a group to stimulate dialogue and enhance the experience.

"CONTEMPORARY ESTHETICS FOR EVERYDAY PRACTICE – Convenient Techniques to Make Your Practice More Predictable and Profitable"

As dentists we are challenged with an increased complexity in esthetic dentistry demands. Furthermore, we are faced with an ever-changing selection of materials, procedures and requests from patients. This lecture will provide an update of current restorative materials and present clinical examples to help you understand their proper use. You will learn ways to make your everyday restorative treatments simple, predictable and profitable. We will review direct and indirect procedures through a series of clinical cases to easily visualize how to treat many of the challenges we encounter in everyday practice—on natural teeth and implants. You will be shown how mastering the basics can help you transition patients into more complex treatments. You will also learn practical techniques to simplify the restoration of your cases and be able to implement many of these immediately.
