He has also been published in several peer-reviewed dental journals and textbooks. In addition to speaking and publishing, Dr. Young also conducts extensive research on minimal invasive dentistry, lasers, and cariology. He has performed clinical trials using lasers, as well as studying caries inhibition by laser irradiation and optical caries detection technologies. He is an Associate Professor, University of the Pacific, and also an Associate Clinical Professor, Adjunct, at the University of California, San Francisco. He has an AB in Bacteriology from the University of California, Berkeley, a DDS from University of California, San Francisco, MBA from the University of the Pacific, Stockton, and MS in Oral Biology from the University of California, San Francisco.

He is currently active in teaching clinical dentistry to the students at UOP and research at UCSF. New Advances in Caries Management: Risk Assessment, Silver Diamine Fluoride, and Glass Ionomer Cement Clinical practice today uses scientifically sound evidence-based approaches. There is a noticeable shift to the caries treatment paradigm by better preventing and managing caries as a disease. This presentation will present a scientific overview of caries management by risk assessment utilizing new tools such as the ADA Caries Classification System, silver diamine fluoride (SDF), and glass ionomer cement (GIC) to managing caries. The presentation provides an excellent update relevant to clinical applications for the dentist, hygienist, assistants and front office. Learning Objectives 1. Develop evidence-based treatment options based on individual risk factors. 2. Use the ADA CCS to determine nonsurgical and surgical approaches. 3. Demonstrate how to use SDF and GIC to treat caries.

Dr. Brian Baliwas’ strong focus on dental education allows he and his patients to formulate treatment strategies together, providing the opportunity for them to be active participants in their dental care. His practice philosophy is centered on conservative, highly esthetic, comprehensive dentistry that utilizes modern technology and techniques. Dr. Baliwas received his Bachelor of Science degree in Biochemistry and Molecular Biology from UC Davis. He completed post-baccalaureate studies in Human Anatomy and Physiology at the University of Oregon and went on to obtain his D.D.S. degree from the University of the Pacific (UOP) School of Dentistry in San Francisco, where he graduated with high honors and was elected to join both Omicron Kappa Upsilon and Tau Kappa Omega dental honor societies.

As an active member of the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry, the Academy of General Dentistry, and several study clubs throughout the Bay Area, Dr. Baliwas continually surrounds himself with some of the best practitioners in his field. He aspires to continually learn and improve, traveling down the path of excellence in search for perfection in his craft. In addition, Dr. Baliwas also teaches part-time at the University of the Pacific dental school in the Department of Integrated Reconstructive Dental Sciences, where he inspires his students to maintain a high level of commitment, passion, and pride in their dental work. Through the organic development of a powerful social media and app-based presence, Dr. Brian Baliwas has grown a 1000+ patient base in under three years of practice. His strong online following has helped him become one of the top social media influences in the dental field. SOCIAL MEDIA and APP-BASED STRATEGIES to Enhance Your Dental Practice In a majority of dental practices, social media platforms (Facebook, Instagram, YouTube, etc.) are commonly misused, underutilized, or worse, not adopted at all. This course will outline how to properly use social media and commonly used Smartphone applications in order to market your practice, educate patients, increase treatment acceptance, and even enhance your clinical work. Your days of paying large social media marketing companies hundreds of dollars per month for generic, unengaging content are over. LEARNING OBJECTIVES: • Learn how to utilize social media in order to network with dental colleagues, educate existing patients, increase treatment plan acceptance, and bring new patients to your practice * Learn how to use social media to enhance your clinical work and stay current on the latest dental materials, techniques, and technologies. • Learn how to properly engage on different social media platforms • Learn what type of content you should be posting, and how to post it properly, maximizing user interaction and minimizing risk • Learn how to use common smartphone applications (i.e. LYFT/Uber, Spotify, etc.) to increase potential patient exposure
