COURSES
Advances for Esthetic Dental Implants: Minimally invasive techniques with Biologics (rhPDGF-BB)
Marc L. Nevins, DMD, MMSC

Course Description
This presentation will provide a clinical update on minimally invasive approaches for Esthetic Implant Site Development. The utilization of recombinantly engineered platelet-derived growth factor-BB (rhPDGF-BB) has accelerated the trend toward minimally invasive surgical procedures to preserve and enhance the esthetic foundation for dental implant supported restorations. This program will present guidelines for incremental levels of flap elevation from flapless to open procedures for implant site development. The use of growth factors has increased the ability for optimal hard and soft tissue regeneration with less invasive techniques. This course will provide a decision matrix for how to manage extraction site defects including whether to raise a flap and how to sequence soft tissue grafting.

Learning Objectives
•  Applying tissue engineering to clinical decision-making achieves optimal biologic and esthetic results for challenging dental implant cases.
•  Techniques utilizing rhPDGF-BB for combined hard and soft tissue grafting will be presented.
•  The use of technology can ease the treatment process for patients and improve the predictability for biologic and esthetic longevity.

Biologics in Oral Plastic Surgery
Dr. Homa H. Zadeh, DDS, PHD

Course Description
Periodontal and peri-implant soft tissue deficiencies may be treated through a variety of approaches. Vestibular Incision Subperiosteal Tunnel Access (VISTA) technique has a number of advantages which makes this technique suitable for periodontal and peri-implant soft tissue regeneration. A variety of biologics have been used to enhance wound healing. Recombinant Platelet Derived Growth Factor-BB (rh-PDGF-BB) has had a long history of application in periodontal and peri-implant regeneration. This presentation will review the applications of rhPDGF-BB in VISTA
for oral plastic surgery. The rationale, scientific evidence and clinical protocol for the treatment of periodontal and peri-implant deficiencies will be discussed.

Learning Objectives
Upon completion of this course and hands-on workshop, participants will have gained knowledge and practical experience with:
•  Risk assessment to identify patients and sites at risk, requiring treatment
•  Scientific evidence for rhPDGF-BB application in periodontal and peri-implant regenerative therapy
•  The rationale and protocol for VISTA with rhPDGF to regenerate periodontal and peri-implant tissues


Hands-on workshop Objectives
Simulated exercises will be conducted to provide practical experience with procedures for soft tissue augmentation around teeth and implants:
•  VISTA to regenerate periodontal and peri-implant tissues
•  Preparation of rhPDGF for regenerative therapies
•  Treatment of intra-osseous periodontal and peri-implant defects
•  Treatment of periodontal and peri-implant facial dehiscence defects

Biology of Regeneration for Clinicians: Why We Do What We Do
Dr. Samuel E. Lynch, DMD, DMSc

Course Description
Dr. Lynch has pioneered the development and use of multiple new biologic regenerative therapies for use in dental and craniomaxillofacial surgery, orthopedic surgery and dermal wound healing. He and his colleagues led the early evaluation and adoption in N. America, S. America and Asia of both Bio-Oss and Bio-Gide, and discovered and developed GEM 21S for use in dental regenerative procedures, plus developed two similar products FDA approved as alternatives to autogenous bone grafts in orthopedic surgery. He will discuss the 1) biology of regeneration in the
oral cavity; 2) how pure recombinant platelet-derived growth factor (rhPDGF-BB) compares to PRF and PRP preparations, Emdogain and other biologics promoted for use in dental surgery; 3) when membranes are necessary, and when they may in fact do more harm than good; 4) a fast, patient-friendly minimally invasive alveolar ridge preservation (ARP) technique following extraction; and 5) numerous clinical cases.

Learning Objectives
•  Technique for fast, minimally invasive ARP, and its biologic basis;
•  Techniques for making biology work for you in your clinical practice
•  Tips and tricks for achieving optimum soft tissue and bone regeneration using rhPDGF (GEM 21)

COURSES
Change Your Thoughts to Improve Your Outcomes. An Update on Protocols, Products, and Treatment Options
Tricia Osuna, RDH, BSDH, FAADH

Course Description
Updated protocols assist us in determining our patient’s specific needs. As we move towards a more collaborative profession, we need to embrace these updates to identify those needs. We are presented with continuous challenges of new advances in products and technology and their use in dentistry and are in need of information to determine when and how to add them into our armamentaria. As professionals providing health services, our perception of product use along with protocols needs to be discussed with our team as well as the interdisciplinary referrals we have. The process of care (assessment, diagnosis, treatment planning, implementation, evaluation and documentation) requires a comprehension of protocols, products and treatment options and how they are to be utilized.

Learning Objectives
This course will provide information for the clinicians to be able to:
•  Modify diagnosis assistance with the team and rationale for changes in assessment forms and diagnostic tools
•  Distinguish which new-to-market products should be brought into your practice
•  Integrate materials and products for a variety of uses in the dental office from infection control, dental hygiene therapy, oral cancer screening, patient communication and instrumentation
•  Formulate strategies that incorporate efficiency in patient treatment for more productive scheduling

Providing Care in Marijuana Legal World
Heather Rogers, RDH, BSDH

Course Description
Have you thought about how medical and recreational marijuana use may impact you as a practitioner? This course will discuss your possible liabilities in the treatment of patients using this drug. With states legalizing marijuana, it will be challenging to address just how to safely provide dentistry to our patients. We’ll discuss how to make common sense decisions on a topic that may prove to be very challenging in the future. We will also discuss the basic history, method of use, myths, and provide a general knowledge of this complex and ever-changing topic.

Learning Objectives
•  This class will provide some of the history of marijuana.
•  This course will describe marijuana and how it is used.
•  The class will define physical implications of medical and recreational marijuana use.
•  This class will discuss myths and truths of medical and recreational marijuana use.
•  This class will list the effects of marijuana use on the dentition and oral tissue.
•  The course will discuss contraindications in providing dentistry to patients using marijuana in a medical or recreational manor.
•  The class will explore possible health care provider liabilities in regards to treating patients using marijuana for clinical or recreational purposes.

Effective Strategies to Improve Patient Home Care
Heather Kelley, RDH, MSDH

Course Description
Course Description: Oral healthcare products are being purchased, yet we still have a high prevalence of gum disease. Dental professionals can bridge this gap by implementing effective strategies to improve patient home care. By identifying appropriate continuing care intervals and delivering oral hygiene instructions using evidence-based behavioral change frameworks, patients will improve their oral health. Lastly, not every patient is the same, so we must tailor the home care regimen recommendations. Based on research and specific patient needs, we will discuss what types of modalities to recommend.

Learning Objectives
•  Identify appropriate continuing care intervals
•  Strategize an effective approach to professional
oral hygiene instruction
•  Deliver individualized home care recommendations
based on patient needs
