Simplifying the Complex Case; Managing Treatment Planning Variables.

This evidence based review of occlusion, differential diagnosis, treatment planning, matrices, shade, preparation design and provisionalization will emphasize how to evaluate and apply risk assessment and make predictable decisions about complex restorative and aesthetic cases. We will walk through each simplifier and “breakdown” the process into constructs you and your team can easily apply. We will explore the physics, bio-mechanics, physiology and psychological dimensions of the topics. The focus will be on developing skills that you can put to use right away in planning and restoring dentitions for your patients.

 Learning Objectives:

  • Broaden the understanding of managing forces on the stomatognathic system. 
  • Strengthen the participants understanding of treatment sequencing and options.
  • Make predictable choices about shade, preparation design, matrices and provisionalization.


Introduction to Treating Sleep Apnea in Your Practice; From Getting Started to Medical Billing

The ADA guidelines on screening for SBD and the ACP paper on splint therapy require the general practitioner to understand medical and dental screening and treatments for sleep apnea.  The overview will cover marketing, screening, communication, basic treatment philosophies, appliance choices, medical billing and the financial and emotional impact on your practice and team.  Sleep medicine has progressed in both the diagnosis and treatment protocol and outcome predictability.  It is estimated that 25% of the population is at risk for this life-threatening condition and dentistry is at the frontlines.  This course is an overview to help you determine of you want to treat the patients that you screen.  It is not a substitute for full training in sleep dentistry.

Learning Objectives;

  • General understanding of the sleep related conditions and the role of the dental team
  • Survey and comparison of available treatment options, side effects and their prevention
  • Develop a matrix for marketing sleep appliance therapy to current patients and prospects.
  • Overview of the medical billing process and the financial and emotional impact on your practice.
