PROGNOSIS FOR THE PERIODONTALLY COMPROMISED TOOTH
THOMAS J. KEPIC, D.D.S., M.S.D.
A Historical Perspective Along With Short and Long-Term Follow up of Cases. Establishing an accurate periodontal prognosis is paramount to case success. Prognosis is often thought of as being “static,” established once, and never to change. However, proper periodontal therapy can alter a tooth’s prognosis, if done in time. This course will show both short and long-term cases where prognosis has changed during therapy.

DENTAL MANAGEMENT OF PATIENTS ON ANTITHROMBOTIC MEDICATIONS
DAVID J. LASHO, D.D.S., M.S.D.
With the aging of our population, increasing numbers of patients seeking dental treatment are taking various antithrombotic (antiplatelet and anticoagulation) medications. This presentation will review the hemostasis process, the phases of clotting cascade, and discuss common systemic conditions where antithrombotic drugs are indicated.
