Speakers and Course Descriptions 

Wednesday, June 20 (8 a.m. to noon)

Dr. Daniel Pompa, "Actions and Algorithms for Medical Emergencies: How to Save a Life (Including Your Own)"

Pompa webCourse Description: There are more medically compromised patients coming to our offices than ever before. Acquire “up to the minute” actions for dealing with a medical emergency while challenging preconceived or outdated ideas. Dr. Daniel Pompa will discusses the prevention, preparation, recognition and management of medical emergencies, delivered in an interactive, high energy, multi-media presentation, frequently described by attendees as “highly informative,” “engaging,” and
“exceptional.” A step-by-step medical approach using basic physical diagnostic methods is reviewed, giving the attendee a clear understanding of these medical findings.

Attendees will explore the “Conversational History” and how it will uncover medical issues not revealed by the standard health history form. Additionally, the participant will learn simple, non-invasive critical tests that can reduce overall risks. We clearly delineate indications for emergency drug use and proper dosages, as well as demonstrate how to assemble and maintain an ideal emergency drug kit. The newest techniques for drug administration will be shown for participants to hone their skills utilizing simulation models and real drugs. Dr. Pompa may incorporate live demonstrations to enhance the learning experience depending on the venue format.

Attendees will receive and review color-coded instructional cards depicting the most common life-threatening situations with algorithms providing an easy to follow action plan for both dentist and team members. We will also review the legal and moral obligations that are presented during a medical crisis. A CRISIS SITUATION can—and likely will—occur at some time in your practice. Many potential medical emergencies can be prevented. Gain a comprehensive command of the essential knowledge and skills needed to handle a life threatening medical crisis.

Course Objectives
- Upon completion of this course, attendees should be able to:
  • Perform three simple chair-side, non-invasive tests to help avoid an emergency.
  • Recognize the most frequent life threatening emergencies and know when and why they occur.
  • Review a systematic approach to treat the most common life-threatening scenarios.
  • Develop a plan for the office team when dealing with a crisis event.
  • Determine when to administer the essential “Top 10” emergency drugs.
  • Understand legal and moral obligations presented by medical emergencies.

Thursday, June 21 (8 a.m. to noon)

Dr. Henry Gremillion, "The Anatomy of Occlusion: Multiple Inter(faces)"

Gremillion webCourse Description: Physiologic occlusal function is a key component in the long-term stability of the masticatory system.  The dynamic nature of this complex system necessitates a thorough assessment of the occlusal relationships as they relate to sign and symptom development and maintenance.  A causal relationship between mechanical stresses such as those associated with bruxism and TMD has been suggested.  As forces enter the masticatory system at the occlusal interfaces they are dissipated through many other interfaces such as the hard and soft tissue supporting structures, the musculature, and the temporomandibular joint complexes.  This program will provide the participant with current information regarding the effects of these mechanical stresses on the various components of the masticatory system.  Management of these maladaptive forces will be discussed.

Course Objectives - Upon completion of this course, attendees should be able to:

  • Review basic anatomical relationships key to understanding of masticatory system orthopedics.
  • Enhance recognition of the destructive effects of maladaptive occlusal relationships at the various interfaces of occlusion.
  • Conceptualize management of mechanical stresses in the masticatory system via reversible approaches to care (occlusal orthosis therapy).

Friday, June 22 (8 a.m. to noon)

Dr. Daniel Pompa, "To Pull or Not to Pull"

Course Description: This course will describe the indications and contraindications, for performing or referring a patient for Apical Surgery. With the correct history, radiographic and clinical evaluation, the decision to perform an Apicoectomy will be weighed against further evaluation, a retreatment option, or extraction. Then a decision is more accurately made as to whether an implant or Fixed Bridge (Fixed Partial Prosthesis), a Removable Prosthesis (Fixed or Transitional Temporary Prosthesis), or doing nothing would be the final treatment plan offered to the patient. The specific workup (checklist) is frequently overlooked, leading to a less than ideal outcome. This course discusses and reviews all options when a tooth is ailing or failing.

Course Objectives - Upon completion of this course, attendees should be able to:

  • Understand the radiographic technique to use when evaluating a tooth for fracture.
  • List the seven step workup consisting of procedures and tests that should be used when performing, or referring a patient for an Apicoectomy.
  • Understand the principles of GTM, and know the indications for the final prognosis.
  • Recognize that the location of a fistula is the key critical diagnostic indicator for the final prognosis.
  • Identify the signs to differentiate between endo/perio defect vs. perio/endo defect, and to understand the difference with respect to the prognosis.

Saturday, June 23 (8 a.m. to noon)

Dr. Liz Kidder, “Identifying Sleep-Disordered Breathing in the Dental Patient”

Martin Kidder webCourse Description: In this course, participants will learn about the emerging study of sleep-disordered breathing as it relates to dentistry and how it can be identified primarily by dental professionals. A brief summary of the scope of sleep-disordered breathing will be reviewed, and the different spectrum of the diseases that it encompasses will be discussed. We will take an in-depth look at the identifying characteristics of our patients who could potentially be suffering from sleep-disordered breathing and co-morbidities associated with these disorders. Finally, screening and treatment options will be discussed.

Course Objectives - Upon completion of this course, attendees should:

  • Understand the basic principles of sleep medicine and what occurs during both normal sleep, and during sleep in a patient suffering from sleep disordered breathing.
  • Be able to identify the specific patient populations that suffer from sleep disordered breathing, and specific signs and symptoms each population will present with to the general dentist.
  • Understand the basic screening devices that can be utilized by dentists to screen for sleep disordered breathing, the appropriate referral pathways to pursue when a patient needs medical treatment, and the tools the general dentist can utilize to treat patients who cannot be helped with what is currently available from our colleagues in medicine.
