Thursday Courses
TH302 - Create Quality Patient Care and Practice Growth With Laser Dynamics
Time: 8 - 11 AM
Room: GWCC, GWCC A402
Type: General    Handouts: Yes
Dentist Fee: $0.00  Other Fee: $0.00

Ready to enter the laser world? Or have an “unused” laser in the closet? Create a niche practice by moving into laser minimally-invasive dentistry. From periodontal management to various soft and hard tissue procedures, laser technology creates positive case acceptance. Determine the appropriate laser for your practice by using a defined decision protocol for productive use of the laser. Lasers offer a safe and effective alternative for a wide range of dental procedures. Some of the advantages include: increased precision, controlled bleeding, accelerated healing, reduced postoperative issues, shorter procedure time, less pain, greater case acceptance and a more relaxed experience for the patient. This course will identify specific considerations for integrating lasers into a practice.

TH113 - Utilizing Laser Technology in a Periodontal Environment: Hands-on Workshop
Time: 12 - 3 PM

Dentist Fee: $325.00  Other Fee: $325.00

Lasers offer a safe and effective alternative for a wide range of dental procedures from periodontics to facilitating quality restorative dentistry. Advantages include: increased precision, controlled bleeding, accelerated healing, reduced post-operative issues, shorter procedure time, less pain, greater case acceptance and a more relaxed experience for the patient. Get direct hands-on experience with diode to all tissue lasers from frenectomy to crown length gingivectomy. Review various laser wavelength therapies with attention to both the perio-restorative and perio-pathology uses. Differentiate laser technologies for periodontal indications (surgical and non-surgical). Develop practice management systems for incorporating lasers into a dental practice (including third party coding and patient acceptance).

Perplexed by the elusive inflamed dental implant? Confused by the various treatment/management strategies? The introduction of dental implants in the overall management of patients is at an all-time high. Dental professionals have yet to achieve a consensus for a standard of care. Recent data now demonstrates that inflammation associated with implants is commonplace and can result in the loss of the implant. The dental team (especially the dental hygienist) must have successful systems. During this course, determine the prognosis of a diseased implant and how to develop the ultimate treatment plan.

Saturday Courses
SA364 - Effective Solutions to Managing Dental Conditions of a “Boomer” Generation

The “over 60” population will increase significantly during the next decade, dominating our practices. Get ready for gum disease, dry mouth, root decay and sick implants from the "baby boomer generation." The four primary areas of concern are: chronic inflammation and periodontitis with over 67 percent having tooth loss disease; Xerostomia at greater than 40 percent with the compromised lifestyle and symptoms; difficulty finding and treating root caries; and implant disease. The course will analyze these primary diseases from initial diagnosis to lifetime disease management. Additionally, attendees will explore case presentation strategies and best practices for increasing treatment acceptance by understanding the generational characteristics of this age group and what they want/desire.
