Paul L. Ouellette, DDS, MS, ABO, AFAAID
Implant dentistry has the ability to dramatically improve a patient's smile, health and confidence; however, implants might not be an option if a patient lacks the financial resources.
While permanent dental implant options remain costly, there are now game changing implant options available. Dive into the world of implants and OrthoVeneers with ABO Certified Orthodontist and Dental Implant Educator, Paul L. Ouellette, DDS, MS, ABO, AFAAID.
During this in-depth session, learn the latest technological advancements including a hybrid temporary anchor device that will support a crown or bridge and maintain implant receptor site bone. This patented medical device is called the TADplant (temporary bone anchors). Discover how longevity (10+ years) and affordability make TADplants a viable interim option for adults, as well as younger growing patients who are not candidates for permanent implants due to immature bone. Learn how TADplants can be placed flapless with or without a surgical guide in 60 seconds and removed in less than 30-seconds. Discuss how to digitally scan and plan the TADplant insertion path with a smart abutment using CBCT imaging and simple cephalometrics. Explore 3D printing options for the OrthoVeneer/Crown/Bridge with integrated monolithic orthodontic attachments. Pinpoint methods for retaining the orthodontic correction prior to placement of the permanent implants and crowns.
Leave the session with a comprehensive understanding of adjunctive orthodontic techniques and dental implant case management. Participants are invited to bring their interdisciplinary cases and audience participation is encouraged.
Upon the completion of this presentation, participants should be able to:
• Elevate your knowledge of analog (wax-ups) and digital smile design techniques applied to TADplant and OrthoVeneer workflows.
• Learn the latest techniques in adjunctive orthodontics using provisional implants and orthoveneers to prepare dental implantsites.
• Be trained in the use of ONE simple Cephalometric Measurement from a 3D panoramic or cephalometric image to precisely plan implant placements.
• Understand why TADplants are the solution for preserving crestal bone in children, teens and adults.
• Explore TADplants as temporary “Bone Screws” used to support provisional crowns and maintain receptor site bone.
• Learn a non-complex technique for placing TADplants in 60 seconds or less.
• Review multiple implant insertion techniques and new orthodontic techniques.
• Discover how to integrate new digital dentistry technologies for IMMEDIATE return on investment.
• Analyze innovative 3D printed appliances used to upright and move teeth prior to (and after) implant placement.
• Explore how to accelerate orthodontic tooth movements adjacent to TADplant sites.

P.M. Course Title: “Tweaked,” “Cracked” and “Loaded”: A Profile of the Addicted Dental Patient
Have you ever felt that your patient’s substance abuse was the elephant in the room? Are you afraid to discuss your suspicions due to your own discomfort or fear of insulting your patient? Drug abuse is at an epidemic level with approximately 1 out of every 10 Americans addicted to illegal and prescribed stimulants, depressants, and opioids. As dental professionals, we must awaken to the uncomfortable reality that many of our patients are “tweaked”, “cracked” and “loaded” and become more comfortable in detecting patients with substance use disorders. In this interactive webinar, discover the drugs that your patients are most likely to abuse. Learn how to become aware of patients with substance use disorders. Learn how to recognize the “clues” of addiction and how to discuss suspected abuse with your patients. Learn how to avoid being targeted for drugs by your patients and how to manage pain effectively without using opiate-based analgesics. Recognize your professional responsibilities and your own personal boundaries in treating the “addicted” patient.
- What prescription and illegal drugs patients are most likely to abuse (depressants, stimulants, and opioids)
- How to identify the physical, behavioral, and oral clues associated with depressant, stimulant and opioid abuse
- How to discuss substance abuse with patients
- The dos and don’ts of treating the addicted dental patient safely and effectively
- Evidence-based practices for managing dental pain without using addictive analgesics
- How not to fall prey to patients who are “drug seeking”
Dr. Ronni Brown earned her dental and master’s degree in public health from UCLA and completed a residency in dental public health from UCSF. Her research on drug-use patterns on “meth mouth” severity has garnered international interest and positioned her as a leading expert on “meth mouth”. She is an international speaker and author of the best-selling book, A State of Decay: Your Dental Guide to Understanding and Treating “Meth Mouth”. With more than 20 years treating patients with “meth mouth”, Dr. Brown understands the behavioral and clinical challenges that the dental team faces when treating the addicted patient. She is a member of the American Dental Association, California Dental Association, American Association of Public Health Dentistry and the Dental Speaker’s Bureau.
