Course Code:  T10

Recommended Audience: Dentists, Hygienists, EFDAs, Assistants, Office Manager, Front Office

Management of odontogenic pain may be accomplished through a clinical approach that successfully incorporates intraoperative local anesthesia. However, improper and inappropriate use of local anesthetic agents has the potential to produce life-threatening, systemic adverse reactions. Thus, a thorough knowledge of the pharmacology and therapeutics of local anesthetic agents is essential for their safe and effective use.  This program will provide participants with an overview of local anesthetic agents commonly used in dental practice. Special emphasis will be given to developing strategies and techniques essential to accurately identify the need for pain control, individualize patient care, and assess the efficacy of the local anesthetic agents administered.

Learning objectives:

  • Explain the basic mechanism of action of local anesthetic agents.
  • Differentiate between the two major classes of local anesthetic agents with respect to their distribution, metabolism, adverse effects, drug interactions and contraindications.
  • Specify the various local anesthetic agent combinations most commonly used in dentistry and the rationale for their use in specific clinical situations.

The pediatric endodontic patient poses a challenge both in patient management and the status of root development. Dr. Usman has a philosophy of proactive treatment versus “waiting and watching” which will minimize untoward sequelae such as infection and discoloration of the tooth as well as facilitate an optimum and conservative, long-term restorative solution. Starting with a thorough understanding of diagnosis and the role of frequent recall, she will demonstrate the management of various patients who have undergone trauma or have gross caries which threaten the premature loss of the permanent tooth. A review of diagnosis and the various spectrum of pupal therapeutic techniques from apexogenesis to indirect pulp capping, modified apexification, and regenerative treatments. The clinical uses of various materials such as MTA, Endosequence bioceramics, Biodentine calcium silicate cement and collagen containing materials which have been demonstrated to have applications, will be compared. Some interdisciplinary time-sensitive treatments will be discussed such as decoronation and autotransplantation which involve other specialists such as orthodontics and oral-maxillofacial surgery and periodontics.

Learning objectives:

  • How to avoid the premature loss of a permanent tooth.
  • Discover the clinical use of various materials appropriate for the pediatric patient.
  • Better determine when to involve a specialist and which discipline is appropriate.

Recommended Audience: Dentists, Hygienists, EFDAs, Assistants

90% of crowns and bridges are now fabricated from a ceramic material, according to a report from one of the largest US dental laboratories.  Ceramic materials do not handle the same as metal-based restorations and improper selection or handling can lead to premature failure.  This course will teach you how to select and handle different types of ceramic materials that are currently used in dentistry that will be much less confusing than typical marketing rhetoric.  The ability to bond these dental ceramics allows the practitioner to perform more conservative tooth preparations.  As there are many different types of dental ceramics available (zirconia, lithium disilicate, porcelain, processed composite, etc.), determining the correct protocol for each type of ceramic can be confusing.  This lecture aims to simplify the process of bonding ceramics and provide the clinician with a protocol that can be used to bond any type of dental ceramic.  In this course, we will review the best clinical practices based on research studies conducted at the UAB School of Dentistry and provide pearls for you to take back to the office.

Learning objectives:

  • Review the different types of dental ceramic materials available.
  • Learn strategies to adjust, polish and cut off ceramic crowns.
  • Classify the types of cements used for adhesive bonding.

Recommended Audience:  Dentists, Hygienists, EFDAs, Assistants

Minimally invasive techniques using bioactive materials can help make teeth last a lifetime. With the changing demographics of our population, it is important to use age-appropriate restorative materials.  Xerostomia is a problem for patients taking multiple medications and results in demineralization of tooth structure.  Bioactive materials help replenish calcium and fluoride ions restoring tooth integrity.  Glass Ionomer restorative materials can serve as a therapeutic restorative material, reducing post-operative sensitivity and potential recurrent decay. Calcium releasing liners and bases provide a strong antibacterial effect, assist in dentin remineralization, and act as a protective barrier.  Universal bonding agents simplify the bonding process and allow the dentist to use their preferred etching method. Composites with optimized nano-filler particles decrease wear, polymerization shrinkage stress and optimize optical qualities. Predictable class II restorations require specific skills and techniques to achieve reliable success. This course is an excellent way to improve your skills using advanced restorative materials.

Learning objectives:

  • Utilize innovative new calcium releasing liners and bases.
  • Embrace bioactive restorative materials.
  • Select appropriate “Universal” bonding agents.

An essential component of the diagnostic puzzle in endodontics is radiology. 2D radiographs have been helpful to aid in diagnosis and planning. However, teeth, like the human body, are 3 dimensional and limitations with 2D radiology exist. Ultimately, the use of 3D imaging /CBCT in endodontics is about avoiding surprises, assessing prognosis, and having the information to treatment plan cases most effectively for long-term restorative success. Studies have shown that endodontists change their treatment plan approximately 60% of the time when using 3D imaging vs. 2D imaging. Case presentations of 2D images along with CBCT scans (identifying significant splits/branches on canals that can be misinterpreted on 2D, assessing the number, shape and location of canals) to review & understand endodontic findings on 3D imaging as well as sharing treatment plan modifications based on the 3D information so as to minimize incomplete endos (CDT3332) i.e., entering and finding a crack/perforation, will be shared.  3D imaging also provides another diagnostic modality for more challenging patients (gaggers, special needs, etc.) and is a vehicle that can provide better patient communication by reviewing the scan with the asymptomatic patient.

Learning objectives

  • Understand how CBCT is a useful adjunct in addition to 2D radiology.
  • Understand how to convey the importance of CBCT to patients.
  • Understand how to review and analyze limited field of view 3D scans for endodontic applications.

Nowadays, being busy is the norm. When friends ask us how we are doing, we often instinctively respond with: “I am busy.” We like being busy because being busy means that we are making things happen and getting things done.  Being busy makes us look good, and it’s easy – you just have to say “yes” to everything that comes your way. Being fulfilled, on the other hand, takes work. Being fulfilled and living your best life requires intention and planning. In this presentation, Dr. Dorfman draws on her 17 years of running a busy dental practice while raising children and living her life to the fullest. This presentation is designed to show that we can shift from the mindset of getting stuff done to creating a life worth living, and reverse engineering life and work to make it work for you. You will learn how to gain control over your time and your team and create a profitable practice that can run itself; how to empower employees to take the initiative, make decisions, and solve problems; how to work fewer hours while growing your practice so you can achieve the life and business success you’ve always envisioned.

Learning objectives:

  • Discover how to use your time effectively to work less and accomplish more.
  • Learn how to systematize your practice to give yourself the freedom to live your best life.
  • Discover how to reverse-engineer your long-term goals to build your dream practice that supports the life you want to live.

Dr. Shelburne went to prison on August 20, 2008 and was released on May 14, 2010.  He learned a series of lessons the hard way. There are ways to protect and defend a dental practice and to prevent what happened to him from happening to you.  Know that if it’s not in your clinical record, you didn’t see it, you didn’t say it, you didn’t do it, it didn’t need to be done, and it doesn’t exist – from the legal perspective. To be prepared for any challenge the whole dental team must be careful, concise, complete, and diligent, not just the doctor; the whole team is potentially at risk. Learning and implementing this no-nonsense team approach to record keeping could mean the difference between success and failure in the event of an action or challenge to your practice.  And, it will result in maximum legitimate reimbursement.

Learning Objectives:

  • To understand that what you don’t know can hurt you and that ignorance is no excuse.
  • To learn to assimilate and maintain records that can both protect and defend.
  • Understand the necessity of due diligence and how to conduct record reviews and internal audits to ensure accuracy.

Learn how and why the biomimetic approach is the ideal way to restore the strength, function, and esthetics of teeth.  The pillars of Biomimetic Dentistry include understanding the properties of natural teeth and applying a restorative technique that most closely mimics and restores these properties. Traditional preparation and retention principles are replaced in favor of techniques that develop extremely strong, durable adhesion to tooth structure. This allows for conservative preparations which preserve intact tooth structure and preserve pulp vitality. This contrasts with the growing trend towards increasingly stiff restorative materials with excessive full coverage preparation requirements.

Learning objectives:

  • Learn fundamental principles of adhesion including the influence of time, polymerization kinetics, and surface conditioning.
  • Learn how to select the ideal restorative materials to restore structurally compromised teeth.
  • Eliminate post-op sensitivity at the source.

CDT Codes are changing at an unprecedented rate and ICD-10 is completely new to many practices. In the CDT, over 175 additions, deletions, and modifications have occurred over the past 3 years. ICD-10 is a new medical coding system that became mandatory on October 1, 2016 for medical payers. Many practices are unaware that medical plans will reimburse dentists for necessary treatment. Remaining current is essential for maximum reimbursement, and documentation that supports the treatment is paramount. This course will provide the most current information regarding these most recent CDT coding changes and will identify those services that could qualify for medical plan reimbursement. The information is designed to maximize legitimate reimbursement, leaving no money on the table. There are many new strategies that will directly affect reimbursement and the bottom line. Move your practice to the next level by arming the doctor and staff with the latest coding information.

Learning objectives:

  • To assess if you are losing money because you are using old codes to file Insurance claims and/or not utilizing optimized Medical coding for medical reimbursement.
  • To provide the latest dental coding information on CDT and ICD.
  • To equip the practice to obtain maximum legitimate reimbursement.

Clinicians are reporting that the burden of dental disease has noticeably increased as a result of the lack of routine care, change in diet, stress and many other factors. This impact of the pandemic is real and will persist for some time.  Being able to repair what needs to be restored, while putting out the fire, is of utmost importance. Please join us for this 3-hour workshop which focuses on the innovations and advancements in remineralization with emphasis on the newest technologies that will influence and change the delivery of care we provide to our patients, especially post pandemic. We will look at the progression of fluorides with a review of fluoride varnishes, SDF, Povidone-Iodine treatments and the newest product called Curadont Repair. If time permits, we will do some fun motivational interviewing on how to discuss these new technologies with our patients with the greatest success.

Learning objectives:

  • Discuss current dietary challenges and medical challenges that place a patient at greater risk for caries.
  • Define the mechanism of action and benefits of Silver Diamine Fluoride and Curadont Repair.
  • Demonstrate the placement of SDF, Curadont and SMART on an extracted tooth. Protocols and techniques.

Course Requirements:  Please bring the following items to the course.

  • PPE – Each participant must bring a pair of gloves, mask and safety glasses.

Dental implants replace missing teeth in at least 100 million people, yet over one million implants fail every year due to peri-implantitis, a bacterially induced inflammatory disease. Our ability to treat peri-implantitis is hampered by a paucity of information on host-microbiome interactions that underlie the disease. By characterizing molecular events at the mucosal-microbial interface in the peri-implant crevice, we discovered an active peri-implant microbiome surrounding healthy implants. Microbial genes regulate human genes encoding cell development, metabolism, morphogenesis, adhesion, gap junctions, cell-cell signaling and immuno-inflammatory pathways, suggesting a role for commensals in protecting epithelial integrity. In disease, we discovered that microbial dysbiosis in the peri-implant sulcus promotes abandonment of host-bacterial transactions that dictate health and instead drives a move towards chronic programming of a non-healing wound.

Learning objectives:

  • Understand host-microbiome interactions.
  • Identify peri-implantitis as a source of implant failures.
  • Understand the role of commensals in protecting epithelial integrity.

When the practice is paid rapidly and appropriately, things are good; however, when there are delays, denials, and requests for additional information, things are not quite so good.  Mistakes can be devastating to the practice.  During the investigation as well as in the preparation for and during Dr. Shelbourne’s trial it became apparent that the practice’s billing and coding systems were faulty.  Dr. Shelburne now educates others so that they can bill and code appropriately. His message is that it is possible to implement systems that can form a proactive defensive systemic approach that will result in maximum legitimate reimbursement.  To be prepared for this challenge the team must be careful, concise, complete, and diligent.  Learning and implementing this approach will result in higher reimbursement while reducing the risk associated with the coding piece of the practice.  If the deficiencies in your systems are ignored both doctor and staff are at risk.

Learning objectives:

  • To recognize the dangers in coding improperly and benefits of coding properly.
  • To know the most misused codes and how to avoid the usual errors.
  • To be able to develop systems that result in timely payment.

Orofacial Pain (OFP) is the ADA-recognized specialty of dentistry that encompasses the diagnosis, management and treatment of pain disorders of the jaw, mouth, face and associated regions that typically fall in the nebulous zone between dentistry and medicine.  Unfortunately, more than two out of ten people suffer from at least one of six types of orofacial pain, and approximately 12 million adults in the United States have pain related to temporomandibular disorders that are inadequately managed by conventional dental therapeutic approaches.  An individual may have more than one form of TMJ disorders and may also have overlapping conditions, such as migraines, fibromyalgia, and other forms of widespread pain. Orofacial pain has varying causes (injury, genetics, and environmental factors), and may affect various body systems.  Orofacial pain has a substantial impact on the quality of life for those affected, and effective care often involves multiple disciplines within medicine and dentistry that requires specialty knowledge. Many, if not most, general practitioners and even other dental specialists are unaware of the valuable resources that an Orofacial Pain Specialist can provide to them and their patients.  The primary goal of this course is to provide an easy-to-comprehend overview of orofacial pain conditions that commonly present in the general dental office daily.  Each of seven main areas within the field of orofacial pain will be reviewed and illustrated with real-life examples.  Of course, temporomandibular disorders and an evidence-based approach to effective management will be discussed.

Learning objectives:

  • Identify the seven areas within the field of orofacial pain.
  • Identify evidence-based strategies for managing common orofacial pain conditions.
  • Make an informed decision about appropriate case selection for primary care management of orofacial pain versus when to refer to an orofacial pain specialist.

When faced with fractured or broken-down teeth or dentition, often the choices are limited to crowns or extraction and replacement with implants, fixed bridges, or removable partial dentures.  Limited finances, an aging population and the improvement of direct esthetic bonded composite expand treatment options. During this course, you will learn how to do routine Class 2 posterior composites, direct composite veneers, post and cores with the core serving as a direct interim crown, direct bonded bridges, and salvage severely fractured teeth with composite. Complex onlays can often replace crowns when a patient fractures one or more cusps. These techniques will help you solve challenges you will encounter on a daily basis in your private practice. Clinical cases will demonstrate the versatility of well-done composite restorations, giving the esthetics and durability of porcelain with the advantage of simple repair and lower cost.

Learning Objectives:

  • Understand how to save fractured teeth with composite.
  • Discover how to solve challenges compacted by limited available finances or an aging population.
  • Determine how improvements of direct esthetic bonded composite expand treatment options in your practice.

Course Code:  O83

Recommended Audience:  Dentists, Hygienists, EFDAs, Assistants

The advances in dental adhesive technology have impacted the methods used in restoring the endodontically treated tooth (ETT).  For decades, clinicians have relied on the conventional plan of placing a core, retained by pins and/or posts, to serve for the preparation and placement of a full coverage crown.  Research has proven that the loss of dentin is the major factor contributing to the failure of the ETT.  If a tooth can be restored without the necessity of using posts, cores, and crowns, wouldn’t that influence how we would proceed with treatment?  Today, with modern adhesive techniques, we have the ability of restoring ETT without sacrificing dentin to create post spaces nor requiring removal of healthy enamel and dentin for a full coverage restoration.

Learning Objectives:

  • Review the advances of adhesive technology.
  • Discover new techniques to restore the ETT.
  • Review research on the topic of endodontically treated teeth.

In this course, we bring it all together at where it starts and ends, huddles. Dr. Safavian will introduce skills to introduce to team members to support a flourishing, happy and efficient practice. We will leave you with resources to better lead your team starting with your next huddle.  This 1-hour course discusses and elaborates on the most important practice management skills that “we did not learn in school” and how they are manifested in team huddles. Great teamwork starts with a great huddle and ends with a great huddle. Each dentist and dental team member must be able to work in harmony and efficiently along with others in a team, and an efficient huddle can glue it all together.  New dentists, owner dentists, hygienists and dental team members are introduced to what works the best and what to avoid in huddles, how to set it up, run it and monitor it for the best results. A great huddle can not only be a coordination time for the team but also a great time for learning, self-improvement and avoiding unnecessary conflicts, leading to a happy team that great team members want to be part of. Nowadays, with a shortage in workforce human resources, an effective huddle is arguably the simplest and yet the most effective step one can take that, when done right, leads to increased organization, team happiness and team retention.

Learning Objectives:

  • Understand what an effective huddle is and how to achieve it.
  • Understand current practice management issues affecting routines at the dental office such as insurance, staffing, conflict resolution, customer service, leadership, personalities, and communication.
  • Discover solutions other dentists adopted post-COVID to overcome issues by being creative and knowledgeable.
