Main Challenges for Recent Graduates Performing Endodontic Therapy

Monday, August 1 | 8 PM to 10 PM

Course Description:

This presentation is geared principally toward the recent dental graduate who feels somewhat intimidated by endodontics.  Most undergraduate dentals schools have such busy curriculums that minimal time is devoted to clinical endodontics.  Consequently, this session will be dedicated to such issues as practical diagnosis, when to refer, how to achieve profound anesthesia, minimization of iatrogenic errors, various instrumentation techniques and obturation options.

Intuitive Endodontics

Monday, August 15 | 8 PM to 10 PM

Course Description:

As a result of recent advances in metallurgy, we now have both heat treated and non-heat treated rotary files.  They each possess different properties and both have distinct indications for use, as well as limitations. Drs. Koch believes that these improvements should be employed to their utmost advantage.  Consequently, a blended technique has been developed that combines the advantages of both heat treated and non-heat treated files into one Awesome Endodontic Technique!!!  A technique that is completely intuitive by design!

Periodontal Update for the Hygiene Team

Thursday, August 25 | 8 PM to 10 PM

Course Description:

Connections Between System and Periodontal Disease: There is emerging evidence to support the existence of a two-way relationship between some systemic diseases and periodontitis, with systemic inflammation increasing the risk for periodontitis, and periodontal inflammation negatively affecting systemic health. Understanding of this relationship and incorporating strategies for chair side screening and making appropriate referrals and management of these patients will help dental care providers to better address patients’ oral and overall health and will also strengthen the role of dental hygienist as an integral component of the interdisciplinary healthcare.

Overview of the New Classification of Periodontal and Peri-Implant Diseases and Conditions: A new periodontal classification system emerged from the American Academy of Periodontology (AAP) and the European Federation of Periodontology (EFP) 2017 World Workshop on the Classification of Periodontal and Peri-Implant Diseases and Conditions. This new classification system will allow dental hygienists and dentists to individualize periodontal care for the patients and address multidimensional factors to provide comprehensive therapy and to improve the oral health outcomes.

Red, White and Ulcerative Lesions: When Bad Things Happen to Good Oral Mucosa

Saturday, August 27 | 11 AM to 1 PM

Course Description:

Pathology of the oral mucosa entails a vast array of diseases that often confuse even the most experienced clinician. This course aims to use a “basic lesion” classification of oral mucosal pathology to help navigate and prioritize diagnosis and management of the patient.

Part 1: Red and White Lesions of the Oral Mucosa

“Redness” and ‘whiteness” are mainstays of clinical oral pathology. Utilizing these two parameters, separately and in combination, we will go through actual patient cases, ranging from the commonly encountered to the rare and/or complicated ones and discuss how to reach realistic, concrete decisions for the patient’s oral health care in clinical real time. Emphasis will be given on how to select appropriate diagnostic methodology and how to initiate and handle interdisciplinary communications where applicable for the patient’s condition. An update on treatment will be provided where it is useful to the dental practitioner.

Part 2: Ulcerative Oral Conditions

Oral ulcers or “sores “are among the most frequently encountered chief complaints in the dental practice. Using the characteristics of an ulcer (appearance, chronicity, pain, location and number of lesions) this part of the course prepares the clinician to systematically develop diagnostic assessment and treatment planning for a broad range of oral ulcerative conditions. Using clinical cases encountered in the largest oral medicine referral center in Michigan, we will present diagnostic decision trees and discuss which additional tests including tissue biopsy are necessary to arrive at a final diagnosis. Finally, we will provide therapeutic guidelines for common oral ulcerative conditions.

Esthetic Concepts in Implant Dentistry

Friday, September 9 | 11 AM to 12:30 PM

Course Description:

Description and review of concepts related to dental implants in an esthetic zone. This presentation will include hard and soft tissue considerations for long term maintenance of peri-implant health. Implants in an esthetic area are considered complex due to a variety of reasons. A clinician needs to consider various aspects such as ridge dimensions, smile line, soft tissue quality, implant position, papilla height among others, when placing implants in an esthetic region.

How to Practically Manage the side effects of Mandibular Advancement Devices in the Treatment of Obstructive Sleep Apnea. An interactive webinar

Saturday, October 1 | 11 AM to 1 PM

Course Description:

Dentists are now an integral part of the multidisciplinary team responsible for treating sleep breathing disorders, particularly due to the growing contribution of mandibular advancement devices (MADs) to the treatment of adult patients. MADs are anchored to the teeth to force the mandible into an advanced position, mechanically widening the upper airways and reducing their collapsibility. However, the stretching of muscles and ligaments of the jaws generates stresses, which are transmitted back to the teeth, periodontium and temporomandibular joints.

Understanding and managing the side effects associated with MADs seem absolutely necessary for patient support, helping to reduce short-term adherence failures. As joint adaptations and occlusal changes gradually take place, following continuous wear of MADS, long-term support and monitoring is also necessary. 

 

This interactive Webinar will test your knowledge about MAD therapy, as well as your differential diagnosis and therapeutic approach for their related side effects. It will be organized around clinical cases with very different profiles, as well as different designs of oral appliances.

Alternative Medicine for the Dental healthcare provider

Monday, October 17 | 8 PM to 10 PM

Course Description:

In the early 1900’s Herbal Supplements were the hallmark of the pharmaceutical industry.  About 67% of all medicine listed in the United States Pharmacopeia (USP) were botanicals.  Now only 2% of all entries in the USP are botanicals.  With the cost of rising health care, and a shift towards self-medicating, the consumer demand for 100% natural products has increased dramatically.  This Course will review the most common/y used herbs and natural substances. It will also provide you with information on drug herb interactions and unsafe herbs and natural supplements.

Implant Dental Malpractice: Avoiding the Inevitable

Thursday, November 3 | 8 PM to 9:30 PM

Course Description:

Surgical placement of dental implants have become a significant part of many dental practitioners, specialist and generalists with all surgical procedures that can be risk of complications. However, with recent technological advances in imaging and planning, those risks have been significantly reduced to the point that failure to employ such systems is being considered evidence of substandard care. 3D imaging is directly affecting the recognition, management, and treatment of complications. This program will provide current information on the evolving standards for treatment planning, imaging, recognition and management of complications.

Bad to the Bone: Dental Oncology for the Restorative Dental Team

Tuesday, November 15 | 8 PM to 10 PM

Course Description:

 We are winning the battle against cancer, which means that more people are living longer . . . and will need the help of their dentist!  With increasing frequency, every dental practice will see patients undergoing cancer treatment and who are at risk of the side effects and sequelae of their care. In 2018, The Ohio State University College of Dentistry launched the Dental Oncology Clinic, geared to providing comprehensive care for cancer patients. The goal is to minimize the risks of dental care for patients undergoing cancer treatment, provide information and education for patients, their families and healthcare providers, and to enhance the quality of life for cancer patients.  This course presents a compilation of the experience gained by that clinic, which will provide tools that the attendee can use immediately in the care of their patients.  The attendees will receive materials that can become a reference manual for the practice in the assessment and treatment of oncology patients.
