"Advanced Concepts in Restorative Direct & Indirect Dentistry"

5pm-7pm PST 2 CEU core

CE Speaker: Lou Graham, DDS

Thank you CE Sponsors: GC America, SHOFU, Align and Pulpdent

For over 100 years, the standard of care for caries diagnostics has been the explorer and x-rays. Let’s all agree that if you are utilizing these as your solo tools for caries diagnostics, you are simply guessing way too often. You are also limiting your treatment offerings to patients, both in prevention and early minimally invasive treatment. This program will challenge you with new protocols for care, and problem-solve many of the issues today in direct restorative dentistry. The program then transitions into far more challenging casework that will include both direct and indirect restorative clinical care.  Register today to get essential takeaways that you can apply immediately to your restorations.

Highlights: 

  • Modern Day Diagnostics: It’s time to put down your explorer and truly compliment your digital x-rays with the latest in caries diagnostics
  • The key pitfalls in direct adhesion and how to avoid them (you will be surprised!) 
  • Advanced approaches to direct restorative: How to really up your game
  • “Elevated margins” and the reason they are important
  • Posts and Cores: Unique approaches to add long term success
  • Digital Crown and Bridge: The joy of impressions… and more!
  • Cementation: How to choose the right cements and why bioactive cements offer excellent options today

CEU: 2 core

Date: Thursday, Feb. 23, 2023 Time: 6:00pm - 8:00pm PST

As AI brings its paradigm-shifting force to bear in dental care, however, few dentists have been given an honest accounting of how AI will actually impact their work––and fewer still have any first-hand experience of AI in their practices. This course aims to dispel the myths and mystery around AI’s current utility to dental offices with a boots-on-the-ground look at AI’s real-world impact on the clinical and business operations of practices currently employing the technology.

 

Learning objectives:

  • Understand the fundamental strengths and weaknesses of AI systems
  • Discover what kinds of AI tools are currently available
  • Level-set on the nature and scope of impact that these tools have on clinical care and practice management 
  • Understand and learn to avoid certain risks associated with AI tools
  • Learn best practices for leveraging AI tools day-to-day to maximize patient health and practice revenue

He is a researcher who has published in some of the top dental journals about topics relating to esthetics, implants, and plastic surgery. With his company Pearl, he is changing the way patients are treated through artificial intelligence and is a leader in this field.

Live CE Webinar: CBCT Common Findings - Dentoalveolar

Live CE Webinar: CBCT Common Findings - Dentoalveolar

Speaker: Barett Anderason, DDS

CEU: 2 core

Date: Thursday, March 23, 2023 Time: 6:00pm - 8:00pm PST

Course Description: 

Incidental findings are present in up to 93% of CBCT scans within the dental setting. When unrecognized or undiagnosed, these findings can cause delays in treatment, prompt unnecessary procedures, increase cost for both the patient and the clinician, and may have a significant impact on patient health and treatment outcomes. Clinicians need to be aware of what can appear on their CBCT scans and how to handle it accordingly.

This course consists of a pictorial review of common findings within the dentoalveolar region and will examine which findings are relevant to your patients, what they mean to you, and when you should refer to a specialist or physician for further treatment and evaluation.   

Learning Objectives:

  • Recognize common findings in the mandible, maxilla, sinuses, and soft tissues
  • Appreciate the clinical relevance of radiographic findings on CBCT images
  • Learn to identify changes that suggest pathological processes
  • Understand when it is necessary to refer patients for further treatment and radiographic evaluation                                                  

Dr. Barett Andreasen is an accomplished Oral and Maxillofacial Radiologist, lecturer, and founder of the oral radiology practice, Radiodontics. 
He completed his oral radiology residency at the UCLA School of Dentistry, where he received advanced education and training in the interpretation and evaluation of CBCT imaging, panoramic radiographs, and other imaging modalities. Since then, he has worked with dentists and specialists across the nation to provide his expertise on CBCT imaging at both national and local levels. His experiences have allowed him the opportunity to work closely with world-renowned specialists in Oral and Craniofacial Surgery, Orofacial Pain, Oral Pathology, Orthodontics, and other specialties.  

In between cases and lectures, Dr. Andreasen enjoys sharing radiology tips and interesting cases on social media and has published several diagnostic aids which are in use in dental school programs throughout the country. Dr. Andreasen is also a strong advocate for patient's safety, health, and welfare regarding the use of radiation in dentistry. He believes that more effective treatment, diagnosis, and communication can be achieved through proper education of both the public and the clinician. 

Prior to his involvement in oral radiology, Dr. Andreasen obtained his DDS at Texas A&M College of Dentistry in Dallas, Texas and graduated with a BS in Biophysics from Brigham Young University. He currently lives in Salt Lake City, Utah with his wife, three children and dog.

Dentists are under increasingly higher stress today.

Objectives:

  • Learn ways to enroll and engage your team so everyone will work together to achieve the practice vision 
  • Understand how by creating a unique practice culture, you can attract more raving fan patients and create a healthy work environment
