Thursday Courses
Th314 - Medical Emergencies in the Dental Office, Medical Emergencies in LIFE!
Time: 9 AM - 12 PM
Room: ,
Type: General    Handouts: Yes
Dentist Fee: $0.00  Other Fee: $0.00

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

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.

Room: ,
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?
