REGISTRATION FORM Feb 22 Young DOUGLAS A. YOUNG DDS, MS, MBA Dr. Young is an active and ardent educator in the field of minimally invasive dentistry, dental materials, and cariology. He serves on several boards and has presented at congresses around the world including the World Clinical Laser Institute, the Academy of Laser Dentistry, the World Congress of Minimal Invasive Dentistry, as well as several universities. 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. Dr. Young completed a General Practice Residency at the VA Hospital, San Francisco in 1982. He decided to pursue full time teaching after 15 years in private practice. 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.
