Advanced Sleep Apnea Seminar - Modules 3 & 4

Saturday, Jun 4, 2022  |   8:30am to 4:00pm  |   Live patient clinical workshop

Course Description: 

This seminar is comprehensive training that will enable the participating dentists to acquire the necessary skills and knowledge in order to screen patients suffering from sleep apnea and then treat them with oral appliances. After the first mandatory 6-hour online module, the second module will take place during the JDIQ dental convention in October. The two subsequent modules (3 & 4), will allow the participants to deepen their ability and knowledge as well as acquire the needed clinical skills in order to fit and manage oral appliances for sleep apnea and snoring. All steps, from choosing the adequate appliance and fitting it to the control visits then finally to titrate the appliance while managing possible short or long term side effects, will be covered. This training will take place during 2 weekends (4 days total) and will be concluded by a 3-hour mandatory exam in order to validate the acquired knowledge and meet the requirements of the ODQ guidelines.

Course Description: 

Third molars are routinely encountered in general dentistry practice. It is essential that dentists have a basic understanding of the natural history of third molars, which teeth require removal and the ideal time to intervene. This course aims to provide dentists with this essential knowledge and the basic skills to treat the “ideal” third molar patient in their practice. Moreover, attendees will develop important skills in patient evaluation and case selection to avoid failed extractions and adverse outcomes. Attendees will have the opportunity to watch recorded surgeries performed by the faculty with commentary to gain an understanding of the techniques employed. Furthermore, on Day 2 participants will be able to bring their own patient to perform third molar surgery under the guidance of the course instructors.

Saturday, Oct 15, 2022  |   8:30am to 5:00pm  |   Live patient clinical workshop

Course Description: 

Working with Patients: Mucogingival Surgery takes participants' competence with soft tissue grafting to the next level. Using a direct patient care approach, participants will first learn how to screen their private practice patients for mucogingival defects, diagnose them accordingly, and treatment plan them for the appropriate surgical intervention. Once these patients have been identified, under the supervision of two periodontists, the participants will perform the surgical interventions themselves at the McGill Faculty of Dental Medicine and Oral Health Sciences dental clinic. The cases will be documented with photographs. Participants will be partnered, so that every participant gets to perform a surgery and assist someone else's surgery.  The participants will see their patients back at their private offices six weeks later, take final photographs, and then a closing session will be held where all the participants will have the opportunity to present their cases to the group, so that everyone can learn from each other's procedures.

Diagnostically Driven Dentistry

Saturday, Oct 22nd, 2022  |   8:30am to 4:00pm  |   Lecture

Course Description: 

In dentistry, superior diagnostics create more efficient methodologies, resulting in better decision-making and, ultimately, a higher quality of care. These diagnostics can actually reduce costs to the patient by creating far more customized approaches to their dental care and ideal treatment plans for long-term success. This course will take the attendee into modern-day diagnostics and demonstrate why the GP must be in control in how they integrate treatments with their specialists. 

Highlights of the lecture include: 

- An update on “what’s best for the patient” 

- Why the 2d imaging is limited and we need 3D to help with proper diagnosis 

- Today’s ideal initial exam, getting treatment plan acceptance and giving patients the best information possible and create great images that facilitates the communication 

- Diagnostic guidance you can take back and apply in your dental office
