Diagnostically Driven Dentistry: Enhancing Superior Long Term Clinical Outcomes
For over the last 75- 100 years, the standard of care in dentistry has been an explorer, an x-ray, and a periodontal probe. This program will challenge the audience as to how today’s diagnostic technologies can be integrated into our offices, and how they impact diagnostic protocols today. Truth be told, we have been guessing far too much. The more information we can attain, the far greater the ultimate clinical result. The program takes everyday clinical situations and identifies how to maximize diagnostics and thereby maximize long term outcomes for your patients and practice.
1. Is it time to say goodbye to the FMX?
PM Course Title:
2. How to maximize 2D imaging with 2D artificial intelligence
3. How to incorporate transillumination, fluorescence, digital scanning and other diagnostics to customize your care
4. From your own morning huddle to creating the non-stress workflow day after day
5. Creating the “NEW” initial exam and recall exam
6. How it all fits into treatment plan acceptance with far more predictability
7. Clinical casework and outcomes that support diagnostically driven dentistry
PM Course- 1:00 p.m. - 4:00 p.m. (3 Clinical Hours)
The Challenges in Restorative Dentistry
“Success” is a very interesting word as it relates to a dental procedure. What is a successful restoration? Is it one that lasts 5 years, or 10 or 15 or 20 plus? Or, did it prolong the life of the tooth until another replacement restoration was required? What is success? This course is all about expanding your game as a general dentist, and covers topics that are essential to understand and equally, deliver success to our patients.
1. Direct Pulp Capping: The steps to success with the right materials
2. Treating Resorptive Lesions: The challenges and successes
3. Treating Cracked Teeth: Trying to make sense of it! What does the literature really say?
4. The Single Implant Crown: 3 options (and yes, they are all different)
5. Socket Grafting and Temporization: It’s all about the planning
