2016 Hands-On Workshops
R-1 John Comisi D.D.S. – ”The Reservoir
Restorative Revolution: Bioactivity and its Place
in Dentistry”
For years the dental profession has been
struggling with providing effective long-term
preventive and direct restorative solutions for our patients.
The evidence is mounting that we may have been “barking
up the wrong tree” in our efforts. There have been many
“bioactive” materials introduced, and there is a real need for
the dental care provider to understand why and how to use
these materials, and why they are important in patient care
now and in the future.
R-2 Thomas Dudney D.M.D.,
Elliot Mechanic D.D.S.,
Brita Nadeau D.D.S. –
”Interdisciplinary Treatment
The restorative dentist serves as the quarterback when
establishing a comprehensive dental treatment plan.
Spectacular esthetic results can be achieved by allowing
the patient’s face to dictate the treatment. This interactive
workshop will allow participants to be involved in a study
club like atmosphere. Topics include facially generated
treatment planning, orthodontic case setup, patient and team
member communication skills, altering tissue levels, implants,
temporization and cutting treatment time from years
to months.
R-3 Scott Ganz D.M.D. – ”Improving Dental
Implant Diagnosis and Treatment Planning
Through Optical Scanning, CBCT, and 3D
Printing: New Paradigms for Today’s Digital
Digital technologies have greatly impacted the clinician’s
ability to diagnosis, treatment plan, and execute treatment
for our dental implant patients. The use of 3-D imaging and
interactive treatment planning software provides the initial
foundation for proper diagnosis. Intraoral or desktop optical
scanners can help define with great accuracy the desired
surgical, restorative, and aesthetic outcome. This workshop
will help clinicians to understand the state-of-the-art concepts
of today’s digital workflow.
R-4 Joe Passaro D.D.S.,
Joe Woodell D.D.S. – ”Treatment
Planning Comprehensive
Interdisciplinary Dentistry Using a
Customized PowerPoint Template
and Photographs”
The Systematic Treatment Evaluation Protocol (STEP) protocol
allows the desired two-dimensional position of a patient’s
teeth to be determined using a customized PowerPoint
template. This template is useful for the doctor to make
decisions and communicate with the patient, the dental
laboratory and the interdisciplinary team. Each participant will
receive a STEP template with an Idealized Dentofacial Esthetic
Analysis (IDEA) for their own use. A PC with PowerPoint 2010
or Mac with PowerPoint is required.

F-1 Fay Goldstep D.D.S. – ”Regenerate,
Bioactivate: Treating Patients in the 21st Century”
Today’s dental materials and technology can
predictably regenerate and remineralize lost oral
structures. Bioactive, minimally invasive dentistry is
the proactive way to treat patients. Decay is detected, mapped
and treated with bioactive materials that reduce restorative
failure: glass ionomer cements, giomers, MTA, calcium
aluminate hybrid cements. Diagnosis and treatment evaluation
of periodontal disease includes genetics and inflammatory
biomarkers. Lasers and other non invasive therapies can repair
and heal.
F-2 David Little D.D.S. – ”Implant Dentistry...
Enhancing Restorative Outcomes Using the Latest
Patients are better informed about the choices
available for replacing missing teeth and are more
aware of the role that implant dentistry can have on enhancing
the quality of their lives. Whether replacing a single tooth
or an entire edentulous arch, technologies such as CBCT,
planning software, and CAD-CAM allow us to virtually develop
a restorative driven treatment plan that produces predictable
results. Learn about the latest advances and practice techniques
for implant placement and restoration.
S-1 Damon Adams D.D.S. – ”Trends, Innovations,
Controversies, and Clinical Tips”
New materials and technologies are reshaping the
way in which we offer care to our patients, yet it
is often difficult to know which to implement. A
variety of clinical tips designed to assist the dentist and team in
choosing the latest lab-fabricated all-ceramic dental materials
and treatment protocols will be demonstrated. This engaging
hands-on presentation will focus on current trends, controversies,
and innovations.
S-2 George Freedman D.D.S. – ”Simplified Single
Tooth Replacement: Stress-Free, Cement-Free
Implant Restorations”
Dental implant restoration can be predictable and
profitable. Patient awareness and acceptance of
implant treatment has grown tremendously. Unfortunately,
the process and the cost of restoring the implant to esthetic
function and form are confusing and costly. Learn a simplified
step-by-step system for straightforward and hassle-free implant
restorative treatment: diagnosis, surgical referral, post-surgical
implant restoration, trouble-shooting and problem solving.
S-3 Jack Griffin Jr. D.M.D. – ”Let’s Grow Teeth…
Excellent Clinical Dentistry using Bioactive/
Regenerative Materials”
Have you ever had a patient say that tooth was never
a problem until you fixed it? This course deals with
the elimination of sensitivity while providing an environment
where tissues can heal. With newer regenerative/bioactive
materials we can stimulate dentin healing and self-repair in our
direct and indirect restorations while reducing sensitivity. Learn
how and when to place these materials which promote oral
health by decreasing plaque, reducing bacterial accumulation, or
promoting regeneration of tissues.
