Dr. Volker
Course: POWERlooking: Strengthening the Dental Eye A guide to assessing esthetic smiles
Time: 8:00 a.m. - 12:00 p.m.
Speaker: Dr. Arthur Volker
Course Description: You need to understand what an esthetic smile is before you can create one. There are a number of variables that must be mastered and implemented in order to achieve an esthetic result. This course will provide attendees with the foundation necessary to objectively evaluate dental esthetics and immediately apply these principles to daily practice.
Course Objectives:
  • Apply principles of smile design and analysis of proportions
  • Integrate mathematical algorithms of dental esthetics to smile design
  • Understand the impact of shape and texture on tooth form
  • Utilize hue, value and chroma to determine color for anterior restorations
  • Understand the components of the polychromatic incisal edge
  • Effectively communicate desired outcomes to the patient and laboratory
  • Correct the “non-esthetic” smile
Thursday, June 9
Course: Minimal Intervention, Maximal Outcomes: The use of minimally-invasive dentistry to maximize esthetic and functional outcomes Introduction
Time: 8:00 a.m. - 12:00 p.m.
Speaker: Dr. Arthur Volker
Course Description: “Minimally-invasive dentistry” is a hot topic in dentistry. It’s very easy to talk about taking away less tooth structure, but it is more difficult to apply this concept to achieve predictable esthetic and functional results. This course aims to give clinicians the tools needed to successfully and immediately expand the use of minimally-invasive dentistry in daily practice.
Course Objectives:
  • Understand and apply principles of smile design and analysis of proportions
  • Gain familiarity with several minimally-invasive direct and indirect restorative treatments, techniques and materials ¨ Learn how to best utilize transitional composite restorations
  • Understand and implement marginal refinement techniques for indirect restorations
  • Gain familiarity with orthodontic options, including treatment for periodontally compromised patients
  • Understand how to apply the protocol of combining orthodontics and restorative modalities for esthetic improvement while minimizing tooth reduction
Friday, June 10
 Dr. Ali Nasseh
Course: Safety and Simplicity in Root Canal Treatment 
Time: 8:00 a.m. - 12:00 p.m.
Speaker: Dr. Ali Nasseh (sponsored by Real World Endo)
Course Objectives:
  • Learn how rotary file design, metallurgy and motion influences instrumentation safety and efficiency.
  • Comprehend the advantages of bioceramic based obturation and clinical techniques for its implementation.
  • Discover how instrumentation and obturation protocols can be combined as a comprehensive system to achieve both efficiency and predictability in most clinical situations.
  • Be able to describe the proper protocol for safe and effective instrumentation of a given canal and cone fit for obturation in different scenarios.
  • Be able to utilize the advantage of Hydraulic Condensation to prepare a quick post space in the canal, if needed.
  • Recognize that long-term success in Endodontics can be accomplished in both a safe and simple manner. The key is to combine new technology with long established, evidence-based endodontic principles.
Saturday, June 11
Course: The Clinical Manifestations of Sickle Cell Disease and the Dental Patient.
Time: 8:00 a.m. - 12:00 p.m.
Speakers: Linda Chandler-Jacobs BS., RHD, Mishie Nesbitt, CDA, BS, MBA, and Dr. Jean Morency
Course Description: This presentation’s primary focus is to bring clinical awareness and educational recognition to the Dentist about the unrecognized manifestations of Sickle Cell Disease and the Sickle Cell Trait on new patients or existing patients in their practice. Most Health Questionnaires do not ask if the patient has Sickle Cell Disease or the Sickle Cell Trait; leaving the dental professional at a great disadvantage when performing procedures such as implants, endodontics, surgical extractions, and orthodontics which may fail when a patient has this genetic blood disorder. This presentation is devoted to the practical diagnosis, precautions, and suggested treatment modalities of patients with Sickle Cell Disease and the Sickle Cell Trait.
Course Objectives:
  • What is Sickle Cell Disease? What causes it and the known treatments.
  • Precautions to observe when diagnosing or treating a patient with Sickle Cell Disease or the Sickle Cell Trait.
  • Understand why procedures such as dental implants, orthodontia and endodontic treatments may fail.
  • Recognizing and preventing a “Sickle Cell” Crisis in the dental chair.
  • Recommended codes for dental and medical procedures in the dental office.
  • Covid-19 and the Sickle Cell patient.
