Breakfast & Lunch Buffet, Exhibits & Giveaways!

This course is meticulously crafted to update you on the latest technologies, review current concepts and train your eye to see nuances, followed by enhanced hand skills.  Techniques to create morphologically precise, direct anterior and  posterior composite restorations that are undetectable by your patients will be demonstrated. You will develop artistic capabilities by training your eyes to see the different  dimensions of color, when evaluating an anterior tooth.

 

You will then learn which opacities and thickness to use in each area to be reconstructed and make a fracture line disappear. You will learn when and how to use pink composite to  mimic gingiva. Step by step finishing and polishing technique will be shown that predictably will mimic the  contralateral tooth’s facial anatomy and reflective surfaces. You will restore both a class IV and build a direct composite veneer and create a morphologically precise  undetectable restoration. 

 

This course will utilize an easy, fast and practical placement technique with a bulk fill posterior composite. This procedure is based on proven adhesives, advanced composite materials and new technologies. The cases  presented have been published in national peer reviewed journals.  There is something for everyone to learn in this presentation.

Learning objectives:

· Train your eyes to see color, line angles, reflective surface, shape, and form in the adjacent tooth that is being replicated

· Learn how to achieve a predictable composite restoration following the stratification of opacities and achieve undetectable restorations

· Learn how to layer the different opacities of composite, opaquing, tinting, finishing and surface texture to create  natural light reflection and make a fracture line disappear

· Review current composite materials, bonding systems, c factors, and techniques necessary to achieve predictable outcomes, while minimizing post operatory sensitivity

· Master the techniques of posterior composite placement with bulk fill technology and matching techniques

Well-fitting, long-lasting, beautiful indirect restorations require that the clinician perform at their best and make countless sound clinical decisions. Capturing a less than perfect impression, selecting the incorrect ceramic material, using improper cements, or not paying close attention to occlusion can all have devastating effects.

This program will give an overview of the best practices in crown and bridge delivery. Proper impression techniques for both conventional and digital impressions will be covered. Emphasis will be placed on incorporating digital impression technology into practice for all forms of restorative dentistry from single units to multiple restorations. A review of modern ceramics and cements will be covered. 

Learning objectives:
· Simple techniques to overcome the potential pitfalls of impression capturing.
· How to overcome the pain points encountered with either a conventional or digital impression.
· What ceramics to use in various clinical situations.

· What cementation protocols will extend the life expectancy of your restorations. 

· How to identify potential problems with occlusion.

Dr Marc Geissberger has presented 450 lectures and hands-on workshops to colleagues in the  United States, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, China, Singapore, Philippines, Indonesia,  Mexico, Peru and Taiwan. He has co-authored and published numerous scientific papers and a textbook entitled Esthetic Dentistry in Clinical Practice for Wiley-Blackwell.

In-Person CE Program & Hands-on elements       

CE Speaker: Ankur Gupta, DDS

When faced with edentulism, the options available to most patients are often limited to  conventional dentures, which retain poorly, or implant-retained fixed prostheses.

These  prostheses can be expensive, complicated, and stressful for the dentist. Implant-retained removable dentures are a great middle-ground option.

In this entertaining and highly-practical engaging presentation, Dr. Gupta simplifies the process, providing a  step-by-step guide from the new patient consult to final seating.
Learning Objectives:

· Gain an overview of all long-span replacement options, understanding the benefits and limitations of each

· Discover the long-term benefits that implant-retained removable options uniquely create

· Attain a clear understanding of the details, steps, and supplies needed from start to finish

· Uncover marketing strategies for individuals frustrated with their ill-fitting dentures

 

Dr. Ankur Gupta graduated the University of Michigan School of Dentistry in 2004. In 2005, after completing a one-year General Practice Residency in Cleveland, Ohio, he and his partner Dr. Nisha Gupta started North Ridgeville Family Dentistry from scratch. In addition to founding North Ridgeville Family Dentistry, Dr. Gupta is a member of the American Dental Association, Greater Cleveland Dental Society, Ohio Dental Association, ADA Success Speaker Corp and an active board member and speaker for Catapult Education’s Speakers Bureau.

CE Speaker: Foroud Hakim, DDS

All-ceramic restorations have all but replaced the traditional gold and metal based ceramic crown and bridge materials of the past.  The explosion in ceramic options in the marketplace can be a source of confusion. 

Am I prescribing the best material for my indirect restorations?  Should I vary between posterior and anterior?  What’s best for single units?  How about bridges and implants?  This course tackles all of these questions and much more.  A review of the evidence combined with a cased-based approach to learning will be implemented.

Learning Objectives:

· An overview of contemporary ceramic options

· A reliable rubric for material prescription

· Maximizing esthetic potential without compromising durability

· Modern prep design and reduction requirements for ceramic materials

· Delivery tips and tricks for impression, provisionalization, and cementation

 

Dr. Foroud Hakim is a nationally and internationally recognized speaker with an unwavering passion for all aspects of contemporary restorative dentistry. He is particularly motivated to help colleagues in improving treatment outcomes, patient experiences, as well as practice efficiency. Dr. Hakim has balanced private practice and dental education for 31 years in the San Francisco Bay Area. He earned his DDS in 1991 and went on to earn his MBA in 2000. His areas of focus range from predictable and lasting adhesion, minimally invasive single tooth dentistry, all the way through to full mouth esthetic rehabilitation and smile design.
