Thursday Courses
Th314 - Medical Emergencies in the Dental Office, Medical Emergencies in LIFE!
Time: 9 AM - 12 PM
Type: General    Handouts: Yes

We are treating an aging and pharmacologically dependent population. How can we be expected to respond/react to life threatening situations when they “never occur?” Simplicity! Practical equipment adjuncts, a few good drugs, “red flags,” vasoconstrictor interactions and local anesthetic toxicity are assessed. The syncope algorithm is universally applicable to initially treating ANY emergency. Case reports assembled in over 45 years in dentistry will relate both dental office and life experiences.

Friday Courses
Fr241 - Oral Sedation in Dentistry: 'How-to' Applications and Maximizing Predictable Results
Time: 8:30 - 11:30 AM
Type: Registered    Handouts: Yes

Sedation pharmacology and how to apply it clinically in practice is presented. “What can go wrong, will go wrong” cases are shared from more than 30+ years of private practice and 45+ years of teaching and directing. How to incorporate (or improve) a smooth and well accepted sedation protocol is discussed. “How do I legally protect myself?” and “What is a fair oral professional sedation fee?” will be addressed.

 

Fr272 - Local Anesthesia: Reducing Misses and Near Misses: Technique, Pharmacology and Humility
Time: 1:30 - 4:30 PM
Type: Registered    Handouts: Yes

Understanding anatomical complexities of mandibular technique by examining the structures and barriers within the pterygomandibular triangle is reviewed. The conventional IANB, the Akinosi and Gow-Gates mandibular blocks will be presented in combination with multi-tasking supplementation with infiltration. Other “tips and tricks” may contribute to a higher success rate. What is within our control? What is not? What can we do about it? What’s the status of articaine and paresthesia?
