    • “Treating Trauma without the Drama” Kenneth W. Tittle, DDS, MS 6 CE units

      Mar 16, 2018
      REGISTRATION FORM March 16Tittle TREATING TRAUMA WITHOUT THE DRAMA Understanding Traumatic Dental Injury Treatment: Guiding the Miracle of Dento-alveolar healing Dental trauma affects more then one in three adolescents. Our understanding of the biologic consequences of dental trauma is pivotal to managing these incidents with an organized, calming approach. Attendees will learn about the consequences of various injuries and their respective prognoses, both short –and long-term. Emphasis will be placed on reviewing our current best evidence and recommendations by the International association of Dental Traumatology. Judicious use of the latest technology to accurately diagnose traumatic dental injures will be discussed. The latest techniques and materials used in vital pulp therapy, repositioning and splinting, open apex treatments, and resorption management will be discussed. The overall theme of this course emphasizes the dentist’s role as a facilitator of healing. You will learn to systematically diagnose traumatic dental injuries and formulate treatment plans that maximize potential for healing. You will learn how cone beam computed tomography can aid in diagnosing traumatic dental injuries. Attendees will understand the principles of regenerative endodontics and vital pulp therapy. You will learn the latest techniques to manage an open apex. Attendees will learn the management or root resorption as it is related to trauma. This course is based on the biology of healing after a traumatic dental injury. Managing traumatic injuries presents both a challenge and and opportunity to use the healing potential of the pulp and dento-alveolar apparatus not available in other disciplines. Case studies will be presented to illustrate a creative patient centered approach to managing dental trauma Attendees will benefit from this course by increasing their readiness to calmly manage traumatic injuries. Attending this course will provide the participant with a multidisciplinary approach employing the latest in diagnostic and restorative technologies to maximize healing from traumatic dental injuries General dentists, Pediatric dentists. endodontists, possibly periodontists and oral surgeons. Assistants and hygienists have enjoyed this course in the past.
    • BIENNIAL REQUIRED COURSES “CDPA, INFECTION CONTROL and OSHA REVIEW” Marcella Oster RDA 6 CE units

      Apr 13, 2018
      REGISTRATION-FORM-April 2018 Oster California Dental Practice Act – Infection Control – OSHA This seminar will cover the California Dental Practice Act, Rules & Regulations, and Duties & Settings issued by the California Board of Dental Examiners, Infection Control and OSHA update. Topics covered will include: • Identify the Specific Safety Plans Required by OSHA • Understand What the Infection Control Regulations are for California • Identify Common Errors with Infection Control and Safety This course will fulfill four important requirements all in one day! All licensed dental professionals are required by the Dental Board of California to take an infection control class and a California Dental Practice class biennially for licensure renewal. However, let us not forget that Cal/OSHA has annual training requirements for personnel who work in an environment that have a risk of occupational exposure to bloodborne pathogens and/or hazardous chemicals. Cal/OSHA requires all dental professionals to take an annual course in blood-borne pathogen training, plus an annual hazard communication training program. The program offers 6 C.E. of up-to-date information in an interactive, streamlined presentation. The course satisfies requirements for license renewal and for Cal/OSHA regulations.
    • “Whats New and Interesting in Esthetic Dentistry” and “New Materials In Indirect Restorative Dentistry” Marc Geissberger, DDS 6 CE units

      May 4, 2018
      REGISTRATION FORM GeissbergerMay 2018 WHAT’S NEW IN ESTHETIC DENTISTRY New materials, technology and techniques are developing at such a rapid pace that practitioners can become overwhelmed. Add to this the increased expectations of esthetic patients and the clinical performance of materials and the entire experience can be challenging. This program will describe changes that have occurred over the last several years in the esthetic area and discuss patient factors that can significantly impact clinical success. New developments in technology and techniques will be outlined and demonstrated. Strategies and future trends that can keep you on the “cutting edge” will be presented. Additionally, my top ten list of things to have or do in order to be competitive in the esthetic arena will be shared. During this program practitioners will: • Gain a working knowledge of the new advances in materials in the esthetic area. • Understand the trends and developments that lay ahead and develop strategies to adapt to these changes. • Gain better insight into what motivates the esthetic patient and how to deal with difficult clinical situations. NEW MATERIALS IN INDIRECT RESTORATIVE DENTISTRY This fast paced, informative session will introduce the participants to several new materials in the arena of indirect restorative dentistry. Tips and techniques for these materials will be discussed during this presentation. Pros and cons of each material will be discussed. This course will cover the latest development in all porcelains, cements, impression materials and CAD/CAM technology and elucidate their influences on the modern practice of dentistry. During this program practitioners will: • Gain knowledge of modern ceramic materials and understand limitations and strengths of each type of material. • Develop a better understanding of the indications and contraindications of each material. • Improve their understanding of the plethora of modern cements and which clinical situations are indicated for their use. • Navigate the technological advances in CAD/CAM Dentistry and figure out which systems may be most appropriate for their practices. • Learn predictable techniques designed to capture flawless impressions the first time they are attempted.
