    • “Don’t Sleep on It: The Dentist’s Roll in Diagnosing and Treating OSA” Ariana Ebrahimian, DDS 7 CE units

      Jan 19, 2018
      REGISTRATION-FORM-January 2018 Ebrahimian DON’T SLEEP ON IT: The Dentist’s Role in Diagnosing and Treating OSA This course will focus on the etiology, diagnosis, and treatment of Obstructive Sleep Apnea. Special attention will be paid to how dentistry can either exacerbate or alleviate sleep disordered breathing. Course Objectives: • Participants will earn a comprehensive understanding of obstructive sleep apnea and its associated co-morbidities • How to screen for and identify patients with sleep disordered breathing • How to effectively implement the medical model in treating obstructive sleep apnea Cost: Member $135, Non Member $235, Auxiliary $65
    • “Stress Related Bite Disorders” Donald N. Reid, DDS, FICOI 7 CE units

      Feb 9, 2018
      REGISTRATION FORM Feb9 REID STRESS RELATED BITE DISORDERS Walk down any street and ask folks if they have an uncomfortable bite, headaches, face pain, ear pain and sore teeth or feel they grind their teeth and more than likely, you’ll hear, “Oh yes, I’ve been told I have TMJ!” If they don’t have those symptoms, chances are they know people who do. Conservative estimates are upward of 40 million people in the U.S. alone fit that category. Stress-related bite disorders are utterly mysterious and confusing to the majority of dentists, yet we skillfully repair patients’ teeth but miss a life-changing opportunity to help them in ways beyond imagination. Additionally, dentists miss an opportunity to convert ordinary dental patients to “raving fans.” Dr. Reid will utilize animations he’s created and case examples to help participants see for themselves why literally millions of people continue to needlessly suffer from stress-related jaw problems. Learning outcomes: • Learn the main elements for a healthy, stable and comfortable bite. • Understand the causes and effects of improper bites. • Learn how lifestyle stressors influence the magnitude of patients’ problems. • Learn what you really need to know about TMJ to safely treat 98 percent of your patients. • Learn the step-by-step formula for predictable, successful splint treatments. • Understand how to turn a patient visit with a broken crown into comprehensive restorative outcome. • Hear various treatment options to solve patients’ problems and the communication skills you need to know. • Learn how to interview patients before you look in their mouths to ensure they’ll accept you and what you offer them. • Learn a simplistic approach to the most comprehensive exam your patients ever had.
    • “Treating Trauma without the Drama” Kenneth W. Tittle, DDS, MS 6 CE units

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.
