Course Description:

Patients who have a symptomatic oral soft tissue lesion often tell us that they went to their "medical doctor" first and then came to us. Yet, it is the dental health professionals, the dentists and hygienists, who every day of their professional lives, and for each and every patient, view and assess the oral cavity in its normal and abnormal states. The incidence and prevalence of autoimmune disorders such as rheumatoid arthritis, psoriatic arthritis, Crone's disease, florid psoriasis and lupus erythematosus are increasing in our population. It has been theorized that this increase is due to unfavorable changes in our diet and the presence of some heavy metals and other toxins in our environment that have caused changes in patients' immune systems, thus leading to changes in the immune response and autoimmunity. 

The oral mucosa is also susceptible to autoimmune reactions such as pemphigus, pemphigoild, lichen planus and Apthous stomatitis. Even periodontists is now thought to have an immunological component. This course will demonstrate that firsts of all, although the course uses clinical pictures and imaging extensively, learning of and diagnosing oral lesions is not about memorizing clinical photographs. The concepts of the diagnostic process and differential diagnosis (DiffDx) will be emphasized and juxtaposed with clinical appearances and patient histories. Included in this presentation of oral mucosal lesions will be viral infections such as Herpes simplex (HSV 1) and the Human Papilloma Virsus (HPV-various numbers) as well. Systemic health conditions manifesting as oral changes will also be addressed. Finally, the possible treatment if indicated and/or referral of specific oral conditions will be discussed. 

Through this course the dental clinicians will ultimately and certainly realize that they are in fact, the true experts on the normal and abnormal/pathological conditions of not only the teeth, but the mouth in general, and the jaws as well.


Learning Objectives

At the completion of this course, the participant will: 

  • Understand that what a lesion looks like is only the first baby step in formulating a diagnosis
  • Understand the concept of dental diagnostics and how to use them
  • Understand the term "Gold Standard Diagnostics" and why we often don't use them or even need them
  • Value more than ever, patient histories especially "history of the present illness"
  • Be able to develop a differential diagnosis for patient, the patient's chart and if needed, communication with other health professionals
  • Have reviewed the more common lesions seen in the dental office including candidiasis, frictional hyperkeratosis autoimmune disorders such as lichen planus and its types including "lichnoid" reactions, and other auto-immune diseases manifested in the mouth including pemphigus, pemphigoid and desquamative gingivitis, the latest the latest on Apthous ulcers, hemangiomas, hemtomas as well as HSV 1, HPV and other viral lesions

Course Description:

Photography is an asset that is often overlooked in the dental practice. With today's greater patient expectations, competition, EHR, and continued progress of clinical imaging, photography is needed now more than ever for continued success and growth. 

Proper use of photography takes your practice to a higher level of excellence in many ways. You may not realize what you're lacking until you begin to implement photography in your practice. This course will help you take your practice to a higher level!

Photography is necessary for documentation, before and after photos, insurance submissions, cosmetic dentistry, soft tissue pathology, orthodontics and restorative dentistry, patient progress, improving your technique, and preventing complications. Outside of the operatory, photos are necessary for internal and external marketing, teaching, and even for updating your resume/CV. 

Both doctors and staff (hygienists, clinical assistants, and administrative staff) should be well trained in the needs, uses, and techniques to use photography most effectively. 


In this intense evening course you will learn:

  • Why photography is essential for practice excellence
  • How to use photography for...
    • practice expansion
    • practice management
    • documentation
    • treatment planning and consultation
    • cosmetic dentistry and imaging
    • lab communication
    •  internal and external marketing
    • improvement of clinical results
  • How to continuously integrate and implement photography in your practice
  • Getting patients to smile
  • Types of photos to take (why and how)
  • Types of cameras and when to use each
    • (DSLRs, point and shoots, intraoral, and video)
  • Methodology for taking both extraoral and intraoral photos
    • Required supplies (retractors, mirrors, and more)
    • Technique and image settings (framing, zoom, and lighting)
  • Proper photo storage and categorization
  • About before, operative, and after photos
  • Patient questions
  • Patient consent forms

Course Description:

Advances in medical technology and pharmaceuticals have enabled patients who hitherto were treated only in hospital based dental clinics, to seek care at our private dental practices. Also, the “baby-boomer” generation, one of the largest population demographics in the country, is at an age where chronic medical problems are extremely common. Many excellent dental schools have myriad technical “competencies” to be learned and thus, relatively little curriculum time is devoted to medically complex patients.

This course will systematically address and review the statistically most common medical conditions that will be presented by ambulatory patients coming to our practices. The dental management and pharmaceutical implications of these patients will be addressed and safety issues will be emphasized. The propriety, usefulness, indication for, and formulation of medical consultation will also be discussed. Finally, the relatively few patients who seek care in our private practices but should instead, be referred to hospital based dental programs will be identified.


Learning Objectives

At the completion of this course, the participant will: 

  • Be able to confidently assess and manage ambulatory dental patients with cardiovascular disease, diabetes, COPD, bleeding disorders and on anticoagulant therapy, hepatitis, HIV, organ transplants and osteoporosis
  • Understand the use of medical guidelines, current antibiotic prophylaxis, and the limitations of guidelines
  • Be able to understand the precautions to be taken with patients on medications that manage their conditions and the interactions with these drugs and the drugs that we may prescribe
  • Be able to generate a useful and appropriate medical consultation and be able to know if medical consultation is actually needed
  • How to take a relevant medical history and what to do with the information we obtain
  • Be able to identify patients that can be treated in the private practice dental office and those that should be referred to a hospital based dental setting
