In order to make "digital adaptation" productive, Dr. Goldstein will explore in detail the three areas of digital implementation that have resulted in the greatest bang for the buck, including the clinical methods and materials used to deliver the "newly found" dentistry that will result from digital co-diagnosis with an emphasis on cosmetic rehabilitation.

Dr. Goldstein's seminar explains all the reasons why you should be taking digital images every day, how to operate current digital SLR cameras, how to store and catalog images and how to use Thumbs Plus software.

Making use of all this information will help to noticeably increase cosmetic and restorative output in your practice!

Synopsis:

Dr. Koerner provides ways that will streamline your oral surgery and broaden the range of operations performed in your office.  New “high tech” devices will be reviewed that make surgery easier than ever before.  These methods will increase your bottom line without adding more stress to your day.    
 The main emphasis is on “surgical” extractions without extensive bone removal.  With this foundation, Dr. Koerner progresses to socket bone grafting (without company hype), alveoplasy, bleeding management (with Coumadin, Plavix, Pradaxa), moderate third molar removal, and basics of mini-implants for full and partial denture stabilization. In the process, he reviews suturing basics and how to prevent/treat common complications like sinus problems and infection. 
In summary, Dr. Koerner clarifies current standards of care while increasing your comfort level for several oral surgery procedures.

On life-like dentoform models, participants perform: surgical extractions; root-tip removal; bone grafting; barrier membrane placement; alveoplasty; continuous-lock, figure-eight, and interrupted suturing; partial bony impaction removal; mini-implants; and other procedures as time permits.


Course objectives: As a result of attending this course, dentists will be able to:
 

1. Select appropriate surgery cases more precisely – referring others to specialists.
2. Do “surgical” extractions more quickly and easily.
3. Be more confident with immediate denture extractions.
4. Handle patients on anticoagulants with greater confidence and skill.
5. Perform third molar extractions in young people – especially with roots not completely formed –
        knowing what to do and what not to do.

6. Understand the advantages and limits of mini-implants as they pertain to improving denture
        function.

7. Reduce/manage complications that can occur with oral surgery.
8. Perform oral surgery according to current standards of care. 

About the Speaker:

Course Description:

Facial pain and jaw related disorders are often confusing and difficult to accurately diagnose and treat. With the knowledge, however, that other than teeth, the most common reason for the onset and persistence of facial and jaw pain is muscle dysfunction, the task of making a differential diagnosis becomes that much easier.
This seminar will provide the attendee with a full appreciation of how the face, jaw and neck muscles can produce the myriad of symptoms that are expressed routinely by patients coming to dental offices looking for relief. Focus will be placed on understanding the stages of muscle dysfunction, why the muscles of the face, jaw and neck get into trouble and how proper sequencing of treatment can lead to predictable results.
In addition, the common diagnoses associated with pain and mechanical disruption in the temporomandibular joints will be reviewed using case specific presentations that begin with data collection and end with treatment selection and outcomes. By the end of this lecture the participant will have been presented with information that will facilitate making a more accurate diagnosis beyond, "you have TMJ".
 Topics to be covered include:
  • Why are 80% of our patients women
  • How important is stress, emotions, sleep disorders, the dental occlusion, bruxism and acquired behaviors in the generation of TMD pathology and complaints
  • Why is pain due to muscles so misunderstood
  • Can a displaced disc be put back into position, and if not, what are the goals of treatment
  • What type of imaging is really needed
  • How to choose an occlusal splint and is one type better than another
  • When is it necessary to equilibrate the dentition in a TMD patient
  • Which medications work best for muscle and joint pain and  how long do you use these medications and in what dosage
  • What about using botox for muscle pain
  • When should surgery be considered
  • How do you deal with all of these patients, they all seem to be crazy

Objectives and Goals:

To provide the participant with up-to-date information so that they can become more competent in the assessment and management of  facial pain patients.

Course Description:

This presentation will describe the "Evolution of Endodontic Technique" beginning with basic biologic principles and concluding with new methodology to make your endodontics better and more efficient.

The lecture segment will concentrate on three areas.

  • How to incorporate new material science, such as bioceramic technology into your practice
  • How to perform root canal therapy in such a manner that you actually enhance the long-term prognosis of the tooth
  • Understanding the Endo-Restorative Continuum and its implications for your practice

The goal of this program is to have all dentists learn how to perform exceptional endodontics in such a manner that they do not destroy the tooth in the process. Real World Endo remains committed to the preservation of the natural dentition as an alternative to implants.

Included in the lecture component will be:

  • a thorough discussion concerning access
  • non- surgical ultrasonic use
  • rotary file design
  • instrumentation techniques
  • a new bioceramic obturation method

Particular emphasis will be placed on developing endodontic synchronicity (a matching system) between a machined preparation and a laser verified master bioceramic coated cone. Additionally, a new obturation technique (Synchronized Hydraulic Condensation) will be introduced and all participants will have the opportunity to validate these concepts during the hands-on session.

The hands-on session provides the participants the opportunity to use "Real World " techniques and to witness first-hand, how they will change the way they practice endodontics.

During this lecture/hands-on participants will learn:

1. How to create straight-line access that will expedite the endodontic process

2. Discover how endodontics can be precision-based

3. The importance of preserving coronal radicular dentin

4. How to "machine" or "mill" an endodontic preparation

5. The benefits of developing "endodontic synchronicity" between a machined preparation and
a master cone

6. The multiple advantages of performing a constant .04 taper preparation

7. Learn the new "synchronized hydraulic condensation" technique featuring the use of
bioceramic technology

8. How best to restore an endodontically treated tooth

9. The multiple benefits of Piezo Electric Ultrasonics

10. Most importantly of all, how to perform endodontics in such a manner that you do not  
compromise the long-term retention of the tooth. In fact, learn how to do endodontics so
that you actually enhance the long-term prognosis of the tooth

For the Ultimate Real World Experience, attendees are encouraged to bring two to four accessed, extracted teeth.

Course description:
Discover the difference between ordinary and extraordinary! Computerized Occlusal Analysis provides clinicians with a far better understanding of occlusion than ever before.

Clinical cases will be reviewed to demonstrate time and relative force based analysis of tooth to tooth dynamics. Many clinical cases will be presented, demonstrating clinical applications for use in creating balanced occlusion in cosmetic, pain management, prosthetic and implant cases.

Dentists will break into groups of 3 or 4 and each participant will check occlusion on others in the group. Each person will get "hands-on" time collecting data and "hands-on" time using the computer.

Occlusion is accepted universally as a key element for successful dentistry. The time has come to take the necessary steps to understand and control its impact.

Topics:

  • Modern concepts of occlusion and guidance development
  • The relationship of occlusal findings and musculature and patient symptoms
  • How to check occlusion with marking paper and what the marks mean
  • How to record and adjust occlusal contacts using a computer
  • Analyzing time vs. force measurements
  • How to know what to adjust

Course Description:
 
Each year in the US, millions of teeth are extracted due to conditions such as caries, trauma and advanced periodontal disease Extraction site grafting and ridge preservation procedures offer significant advantages to the patient and the dental practice, but many dentists still aren’t taking advantage of the benefits these procedures offer to their patients.

Tooth extraction without concomitant socket grafting results in osseous deformities of the alveolar ridge, such as reduced height and width. This makes subsequent management of esthetics and implant placement very challenging. Socket grafting using a bone graft substitute has been shown to significantly reduce the bone loss, better maintain the ridge dimensions and enhance the clinician’s ability to provide esthetically and functionally satisfying restorations at a later time.

This course will help you understand site development principles and bone grafting protocols leading to the optimal foundation for esthetics and implant success. Attendees will gain the skill sets necessary to achieve predictable hard tissue augmentation and work with grafting materials in a hands-on setting.

HANDS ON PROGRAM: COURSE TOPICS

Performed on pig jaws from extraction, preparation placement of bone grafts

  • Principle of successful hard tissue augmentation 
  • Steps to performing extraction socket grafting and ridge preservation
  • Instrumentation used to successfully perform bone augmentation

Synopsis:

Dr. Koerner provides ways that will streamline your oral surgery and broaden the range of operations performed in your office.  New “high tech” devices will be reviewed that make surgery easier than ever before.  These methods will increase your bottom line without adding more stress to your day.    
 The main emphasis is on “surgical” extractions without extensive bone removal.  With this foundation, Dr. Koerner progresses to socket bone grafting (without company hype), alveoplasy, bleeding management (with Coumadin, Plavix, Pradaxa), moderate third molar removal, and basics of mini-implants for full and partial denture stabilization. In the process, he reviews suturing basics and how to prevent/treat common complications like sinus problems and infection. 
In summary, Dr. Koerner clarifies current standards of care while increasing your comfort level for several oral surgery procedures.

On life-like dentoform models, participants perform: surgical extractions; root-tip removal; bone grafting; barrier membrane placement; alveoplasty; continuous-lock, figure-eight, and interrupted suturing; partial bony impaction removal; mini-implants; and other procedures as time permits.


Course objectives: As a result of attending this course, dentists will be able to:

    BRING OR AT LEAST SEND YOUR STAFF!!  

    *Breakfast and Lunch Included*

    Course Description:

    Medical emergencies occurring in the dental office can be stressful and frightening, not only for the patient, but also the entire dental team.  This course is designed for dentists and staff to develop strategies to prevent, identify and respond to medical problems including syncope, allergic problems, cardiovascular abnormalities, diabetes and respiratory distress.  Emphasis will be placed on preparing the dental team in advance of a crisis to minimize its potential impact.

    Although dentists or staff will benefit from attending individually, the greatest gain is achieved when the entire dental team attends together. By doing so, dental teams can develop a coordinated response to a patient’s problem.  An extensive handout is provided which can later be condensed into a chair-side manual with appropriate protocols to respond to most emergencies.

    Hands-On session in the afternoon:

    Successfully managing a medical emergency is significantly different from knowing about medical emergencies.  Working individually and in groups, the afternoon portion of the meeting will include a series of exercises to utilize the material presented in the morning lecture.

    Upon successful completion of the course, the participant should be able to:

    • Describe the autonomic portion of the peripheral nervous system and how emergency medications influence it

    • Describe the respiratory system and critical components of respiration

    • Describe the cardiac cycle and how it facilitates circulation and perfusion

    • Recognize how to obtain a quality medical history that is both current and accessible

    • Describe the minimal staffing requirements and pre-assigned duties for each staff person to respond to a medical emergency

    • Understand how to recognize and maintain a patent airway

    • Understand how to supplement the oxygen supply to someone with respiratory depression as well as  understand artificial respiration for the apenic patient and recognize the use of various medications in the dentist’s emergency drug kit


      ** Recommended: All attendees participating in the Medical Emergencies Course should have a current Basic Life Support for Health Care Providers Certification. If you don't have this certification, NJHPDI will be offering a BLS course prior to the Medical Emergency Course. Remember, this certification is recommended, not required.

      Sponsor: Brasseler USA

      Course Description:

      This presentation will describe the "Evolution of Endodontic Technique" beginning with basic biologic principles and concluding with new methodology to make your endodontics better and more efficient.

      The lecture segment will concentrate on three areas.

      • How to incorporate new material science, such as bioceramic technology into your practice
      • How to perform root canal therapy in such a manner that you actually enhance the long-term prognosis of the tooth
      • Understanding the Endo-Restorative Continuum and its implications for your practice.

      The goal of this program is to have all dentists learn how to perform exceptional endodontics in such a manner that they do not destroy the tooth in the process. Real World Endo remains committed to the preservation of the natural dentition as an alternative to implants.

      Included in the lecture component will be:

      • a thorough discussion concerning access
      • non- surgical ultrasonic use
      • rotary file design
      • instrumentation techniques
      • a new bioceramic obturation method

      Particular emphasis will be placed on developing endodontic synchronicity (a matching system) between a machined preparation and a laser verified master bioceramic coated cone. Additionally, a new obturation technique (Synchronized Hydraulic Condensation) will be introduced and all participants will have the opportunity to validate these concepts during the hands-on session.

      The hands-on session provides the participants the opportunity to use "Real World " techniques and to witness first-hand, how they will change the way they practice endodontics.

      During this lecture/hands-on participants will learn:

      1. How to create straight-line access that will expedite the endodontic process

      2. Discover how endodontics can be precision-based

      3. The importance of preserving coronal radicular dentin

      4. How to "machine" or "mill" an endodontic preparation

      5. The benefits of developing "endodontic synchronicity" between a machined preparation and
      a master cone

      6. The multiple advantages of performing a constant .04 taper preparation

      7. Learn the new "synchronized hydraulic condensation" technique featuring the use of
      bioceramic technology

      8. How best to restore an endodontically treated tooth

      9. The multiple benefits of Piezo Electric Ultrasonics

      10. Most importantly of all, how to perform endodontics in such a manner that you do not  
      compromise the long-term retention of the tooth. In fact, learn how to do endodontics so
      that you actually enhance the long-term prognosis of the tooth

      For the Ultimate Real World Experience, attendees are encouraged to bring two to four accessed, extracted teeth.

      (Saturday, Mt. Laurel, NJ ) 

      Highly Recommended for Hygienists


      Presenter: Neil Gottehrer, DDS                                                  CE Credits: 7
      Date: Sat, October 20, 2012                                                            Time: 8am - 4pm

      Course Description:

      Periodontal disease and cardiovascular disease are among the most prevalent conditions affecting adults today. Periodontal disease has been shown to affect as many as 75% of adults in the United States. The American Heart Association has estimated that as many as 1 in 3 ( or 80.7 million ) adults have cardiovascular disease.

      These recent studies have suggested a strong connection between periodontal and cardiovascular disease. Over one half of adults with periodontal disease require treatment. Unfortunately, less than 5% of adults with periodontal disease receive care. Hopefully, more consumers, after learning they can be treated successfully and painlessly without surgery, will seek out and accept treatment.

      In this course, we will review the new standard of periodontal care, and provide dentists and staff with a clinical understanding of how periodontal disease can now be successfully treated.

      Topics covered:
      • Review the oral body inflammatory connection, its impact on cardiovascular disease, and its connection to periodontal disease 
      • Periodontal Risk Assessment (PRA) using the "STAT-CK" screening exam
      • Standard of care for non-surgical management of periodontal disease
      • Effective oral hygiene protocol to predictably reduce the risk of disease; dispensing caries control/desensitizing toothpaste
      • Conservative management of periodontitis, including instrumentation and use of site specific antibiotic treatment
      • Application of fluoride varnish to control sensitivity before and after treatment 
      • Host modulation-safe and effective use of systemic enzyme-suppressor drugs, subantimicrobial dose of doxycycline, to reduce oral disease and help reduce the dental risk for cardiac disease
      • Coronary artery disease-A dental primer
      • Site management of the medically compromised patient, who cannot be taken off anticoagulant blood thinner medication, with dental lasers,to control bleeding    
      • New Delivery systems for topical analgesic management to provide PAIN FREE patient comfort during treatment
      • Restoration of teeth with a "periodontal crown" to control inflammation and disease
      With current information about the Periodontal Systemic Disease Connection, every dentist and hygienist in attendance will learn the cause of periodontal disease and its effect on physical health, and will be able to implement the technology discussed, improve patient care and provide information for the physician which may be critical for successful disease management.

      Learn how to become a member of the medical team and receive physician's referrals for "Period Risk Assessment."

      In addition, Dr. Gottehrer will be discussing the hottest new topic: Salivary Diagnostics.

      With the development of "salivary diagnostics," and with associated new therapeutic safe drugs, we can now defeat active periodontal disease predictably and long term, non-surically, using current technology and new innovative products. We may actually be able to save lives and become a necessary part of the medical team diagnosing/managing inflammatory, disease.

      Patients have become more conscious about their health, including the connection between a heart attack and stroke and the mouth. They have the desire to help themselves be healthier and live longer. Dentists employing this technology have found patients to e very grateful and more loyal to them. In the coming year, even more exciting diagnostic technology and conservative treatment will be used by dentist/hygienists. Already more elective and cosmetic dentiery is being done by the dental proactices using early diagnostic technology.

      All current and future testing and treatment, periodontally and retoratively, including the periodontal crown margin now available, using KDZ Zirconia Ultra, will be discussed and reviewed. All current technology discussed will be employable in the dental practice immediately!

        Course Description:

        Women have special needs and considerations that men don’t have when it comes to oral health and dental care.  Hormonal fluctuations affect more than a women’s reproductive system.  They have surprisingly strong influence on the oral cavity.  These changes are not necessarily the result of direct hormonal action on the tissues, but perhaps best explained as the effects of local factors on tissues exacerbated by hormonal activity.  Puberty, menses, pregnancy, and menopause all influence women’s oral health and the way in which dental treatment should be approached.  Similar influences may be seen as well in women taking oral contraceptives and hormone replacement therapy.  Discussion will lend itself to these life cycle changes and their impact on the oral cavity, as well as the latest information on osteoporosis and bisphosphonate-induced osteonecrosis of the jawbone.  Also presented are oral conditions that may occur in women who are affected by eating disorders, as well as those who are victims of domestic violence.
