  3. Understand the emerging field of facial injectables and their role in dental therapeutic treatment
3:15 - 4:15           Dr. Brian Novy Technology To Improve Your Caries Management

The detection of dental decay must be: scientific, accurate, reliable, and clinically significant. It is an essential part of the caries risk assessment process when examining the patient. The CarieScan PRO is the latest and most accurate diagnostic tool for  clinical practice.  The CarieScan PRO offers dental professionals (dentists and qualified team members) a predictable, evidence-based technique for the detection and qualitative evaluation of decay in teeth. The CarieScan provides information about whether the hard tissues are healthy, in the early stages of decay or significantly decayed.  The results are displayed on an easy-to-understand LCD screen as well as in a numeric format.  Through the use of proprietary RemoteView software and Bluetooth connection between CarieScan PRO and the office computer, this data is recorded to the patient's chart for evaluation, monitoring, and long-term assessment of the disease status.
Learning objectives:
1. To become familiar with the newest and most accurate caries detection technology
2. To successfully integrate new and inexpensive technologies into the practice
3. How to incorporate the data into an overall risk assessment of the patient and develop the correct treatment plan


4:30 - 5:30           Dr. George Freedman Evolving Conservative Restorations

Conservative preparations and simplified restorations are the primary parameters of the successful practice. The evolution of minimal preparation concepts is complemented by newer generation Giomer filling materials, "super" flowable and hybrid,that are functionally and esthetically superior. Of course, the precursor for every restorative procedure is a predictable 1-step 7th generation adhesive. Single step resin cements create the ideal interface between tooth structure, metal and ceramic while special additives target alumina and zirconia crowns and bridges.

Learning objectives:

  1. 1-step development of occlusal anatomy with "super" flowables
  2. Predictable adhesion for all restorative procedures
  3. Single step resin cementation of all indirect restorations
28-Nov           Speaker Title
10:00 - 11:00           Dr. Fay Goldstep What Patients Want… What Dentists Want: Easy, Healthy Dentistry!

Today's well-informed dental patient is concerned more than ever with health and healthy options. Health is now the driving force for dental patients the way cosmetic dentistry was in the past. New caries detection systems make treatment more scientific and medically significant. Discover the latest remineralization therapies, including glass ionomers and Giomers, to PROACTIVELY treat caries.

Direct repair instead of indirect replacement is a "patient friendly" minimally invasive option. Predictable direct restorative procedures are the backbone of the general dental practice. Keep it simple. News Flash! Today's "super" flowables can be as strong as hybrids and have easy handling properties. See how to use these "dentist friendly" materials to provide your patients with simple, maintainable, healthy dentistry.

Learning objectives:

  1. Use remineralizaton therapies to PROACTIVELY treat caries
  2. Repair and maintain restorations using the new "super" flowables
  3. Attract and keep patients by practicing conservative healthy dentistry
11:15 - 12:15           Dr. Damien Mulvany Why View Your 3D Patients With 2D Images? A Common Sense Approach To 3D Imaging In The General Practice

This clinical presentation will show how 3D technology can be easily and profitably incorporated into a general dental practice.

  • What do I look for in a 3D unit?
  • What do I use it for?
  • How do I pay for it?
12:45 - 1:45           Dr. Larry Emmott Remember When "e" Was Just A Letter? Use e-Services to improve patient care and increase profitability

Digital technology is revolutionizing every aspect of dental practice including how we make clinical decisions and how we communicate. One of the most powerful trends in technology is the development and expansion of the Internet and e-services yet many dentists do not understand or utilize e-services. This course will explain what an e-service is and how we can use e-services to improve patient care and increase profitability.

Learning objectives:

  1. Understand what an e-service is.
  2. Learn how to use e-services to improve patient care.
  3. Know the steps needed to start using e-services.
2:00 - 3:00           Dr. George Freedman and Dr. Fay Goldstep Diode Lasers and Restorative Dentistry

The soft tissue diode laser has become an essential part of the dental practice. Restorative dentistry is a snap with soft tissue lasers. No more retraction cord, no more missed margins on impressions. A 15 second troughing prepares every abutment for a perfect impression. Decay or fracture below the gingival? Why wait for conventional soft tissue surgery when it can be done immediately chairside.

The soft tissue laser is also a vital tool for periodontal treatment by dentists and hygienists. The diode laser empowers the dental team to take an even greater role in the healing therapies designed for the dental patient including laser bacterial decontamination, laser assisted periodontal therapy, and laser biostimulation.

3:15 - 4:15           Dr. Shamshudin Kherani The Power of Dentistry - Positively and Significantly Affecting our Patients' Lives

Our patients have to deal with a myriad of pain and dysfunction issues that out of necessity become chronic as the patient has to go through the everyday necessities of life. The patient is forced to live with these symptoms and tries to mitigate with drugs, continuous band aid treatment modalities and in many cases significant irreversible treatment that may not even address the issue at hand. As contemporary dentists, we have the ability to interact with our patients in a manner that allows them to inform us of such chronic issues that they may be facing and at the same time be able to understand the presented physiology by the patient to render treatment that allows for cessation of such pain and dysfunction.

In performing long lasting comprehensive contemporary dentistry, Form, Function, Esthetics and Stability are the attributes that we strive for and should for good reason. In the end, it is "physiology" that informs and governs the long term end result. In generalities, anatomy (i.e. Form) gives us guidance whereas physiology determines the end result. As Sir Charles Sherrington proved with a resulting Nobel Prize, that "Physiological Economy" is at the center of a person's well-being.

Dr. Kherani will discuss the theory and science behind the Neuro Muscular Occlusion philosophy and its application in treating numerous cases that range from aesthetic needs to pain management in a contemporary setting. A sound diagnosis followed by a physiologic treatment modality will prevent both overtreatment and under treatment of the patient leading to a permanent and stable cure of the conditions presented.

The much ignored arena of Sleep Disordered Breathing will also be considered in the overall diagnosis leading to treatment that allows the alleviation of this harmful disorder with far reaching complications that can result in increased mortality and morbidity. Successful long term treatment outcomes will be shared along with patient testimonials.

4:30 - 5:30           Dr. Marty Jablow Understanding the Advances in Self-Adhesive Technlogy and How To Incorporate Them Into Your Restorative Practice

There is considerable confusion for the practitioner when discussing self-adhesive materials and when to best utilize these different types of products. With the introduction of self etch self-adhesive flowable composites, cements, bonding agents and core material, the confusion has increased. We will review the different types of materials and how to best use these to provide better restorations and improve the quality of dental treatment.

Participants will:

  • Understand total etch vs. self etch adhesives
  • Understand how and when to use self adhesive cements and core material
  • Understand the use of self etch flowable composites and when to use them
29-Nov           Speaker Title
10:00 - 11:00           Dr. Gregori Kurtzman Core Buildups, Post & Cores and Understanding Ferrule

Discussion on how to restore endodontically treated teeth and the decision making process on core buildup verses a post & core will be addressed. Techniques and materials will be reviewed for creating durable predictable core buildups and post & cores. Additionally, we will discuss the importance of restorative ferrule in today's adhesive world and why it's just as important today to achieve long term clinical success.

This course will provide solutions to daily issues encountered by most dentists with the use of newly developed Kuraray's one-step self-etch and core material.

Participants will learn about:

  1. When to use posts and when they are not needed
  2. Simplified predictable techniques for post cementation
  3. Understanding the importance of ferrule in today's adhesive world
11:15 - 12:15           Dr. Paul Goodman Capitalize on the Hidden Implant Production in Your Practice

Participants will learn about:

  1. Effective consultation techniques to increase case acceptance.
  2. Streamlining the implant process from planning to final restoration.
  3. Loupes help maintain better ergonomics, increase quality of work, and are especially helpful for working with small implant parts.
12:45 - 1:45           Dr. Fay Goldstep and dr. George Freedman The Diode Laser: the Essential Soft Tissue Handpiece

The soft tissue laser is also a vital tool for periodontal treatment by dentists and hygienists. The diode laser empowers the dental team to take an even greater role in the healing therapies designed for the dental patient including laser bacterial decontamination, laser assisted periodontal therapy, and laser biostimulation.

The following questions will be addressed:

  • What do the clinical studies say?
  • What is the relevant science?
  • How easy is it to operate the laser?
  • How can you implement this exciting new treatment into your practice?
  • Do you need a soft tissue laser?
  • Can you afford to be without one?
2:00 - 3:00           Dr. Pedro Lazaro Calvo Surgical decision making in aesthetic implant dentistry

The dental rehabilitation in the esthetic zone is often clinically challenging. The goal of esthetic implant therapy is to provide a predictable and esthetically and functionally satisfying treatment outcome with a low risk of esthetic complications. It is desirable to achieve this goal with a minimum trauma and number of surgical procedures and in the shortest possible treatment time from tooth extraction to implant restorations.

The aim of this presentation is to introduce a surgical decision making to help the clinician in the selection of the most adequate surgical technique in the implant treatment of esthetic areas in order to reach the objectives described above. Each surgical decision is presented with a case report. In addition, the biologic rationale is discussed.

3:15 - 4:15           Dr. Stanley Malamed and Dr. Mic Falkel Local Anesthetic Performance; Fiction, Fact and Advancements (Precision Buffering)

This presentation will focus on the science and clinical performance of local anesthesia, including recent advancements.  A review of the documented studies on the time course for soft tissue analgesia and pulpal analgesia will lend to the discussion on the commonly held beliefs under which many dentists organize their practice day. 
The presentation will discuss the role that alkalinization (pH buffering) standard dental anesthetic cartridges immediately before delivering the injection can affect the anesthetic's performance, the patient experience, and the practice's schedule. The presentation will describe and demonstrate a novel ex vivo precision cartridge buffering system.

1:50 - 2:50           Dr. David Hoxter Innovative and new instruments to preserve bone during extractions

The need to preserve as much bone as possible is crucial to the predictability of successful implant osseous integration. With the tremendous popularity of implants by dentists and their acceptance by society, replacing edentulous areas with predictability will provide you with the key to success.

This presentation presents and discusses new and innovative instruments that will effectively aid you in the regeneration of predictable bone and its preservation during extractions of teeth. Classical extractions have all too often led to resorbsion of the buccal bone of the extracted area. By their putting pressure on the buccal bone, the bone resorbs, leading to loss of this buccal bone. Consequentially, implants, which need to be placed in adequate supportive bone, are too often placed too lingually, where the majority of the bone is preserved. This leads to the prosthetic coverage of the implant having occlusal as well as embrasure compromises.

These new instruments change the direction of the pressure of the extraction, avoiding pressure towards the buccal or lingual bone. By changing this direction, these new instrument avoid the probable resorbsion, preserve bone, and promote successful regeneration of a wider B-L osseous height and ridge. The implant will then be ready to be placed in a more desirable position, both physiologically and occlusally.

2:55 – 3:55           Dr. Robert

Dr. Horowitz also teaches in the Department of Oral Surgery and conducts research in the Departments of Biomaterials and Biomimetics and Oral Diagnosis.   Dr. Horowitz has lectured and published nationally and internationally.  He has also performed research in bone grafting, extraction socket augmentation and the placement of dental implants in areas of limited available bone.  Current research includes prospective, multi-center, international studies on a number of bone replacement materials, periodontal regenerative materials, minimally invasive surgical techniques, guided surgery and implant surfaces/designs.

Dr. Horowitz is currently conducting research on bone graft materials and growth factors for use in periodontology, extraction socket therapy and implant dentistry.  Some of the growth factors increase the speed and predictability of new bone attaching to the root surface in a periodontal lesion.  Other growth factors improve the ingrowth of vital bone in the area of a recent tooth extraction or in the part of the jaw where a significant amount of bone has been lost due to periodontal disease, trauma or prior extractions.
Dr. Horowitz is available to lectures to national and international groups on many topics related to Increasing Case Acceptance Through Digital Technology and Predictable Bone Regeneration.  Some of these topics include predictable methods to maintain bone after teeth are extracted and new periodontal regenerative processes to maintain and improve the bone levels around teeth with bone loss.  Dr. Horowitz can demonstrate the uses of dental implants to replace one or more teeth with fixed crown - type restorations or the use of implants as anchors to help improve the stability of removable bridges or dentures
