From all aspects of dentistry, this CE course gathers together SDDS member dentists who will present pearls for the general practitioner as well as specialists. Speakers listed in order of presentation.

Ian Marion, DDS – Pediatric Frenum Assessment and Treatment:

Nearly every child has a frenum – maxillary, mandibular, lingual, or buccal, they are everywhere! The key for a dental practitioner is to be able to identify frenae, and determine when intervention is necessary. This presentation will include overview frenum identification, classification, indications for treatment, other key players in frenum evaluation/treatment will be discussed as well, as treatment often involves professionals outside of the dental field.

Homan Javaheri, DMD, MDS – CBCT in Endodontics

This lecture will discuss how additional information provided by CBCT may increase and improve diagnostic accuracy and confidence in decision making as well as have an impact of treatment planning, endodontic treatment and follow-up.

Matt Sandretti, DDS, MSD – Orthodontics and Restorative Treatment: A Winning Combination

One of the most rewarding and challenging aspects of interdisciplinary care is the coordination of tooth movement with restorative treatment planning. As a team, we have the opportunity to use our individual skillsets, creativity and collaborative mindset to design the best outcomes for our patients. We will discuss orthodontic considerations for some of the most common restorative challenges as well as the role of digital dentistry in evaluation, treatment planning and visualization of final results.

Clifford Chow, DDS – Chairside Risk Assessment for Temporomandibular Disorders

Temporomandibular disorders (TMD) risk assessment is difficult in general dentistry due to the complexity of multifactorial risk factors, paucity of robust data and lack of standardized education. Secondary data analysis from a recent large prospective TMD study has resulted in a chairside risk assessment tool that can be utilized based on a dentist’s standard medical history. This risk assessment tool can be important with respect to dental treatment planning and prevention of the development of TMDs.

Jeff Delgadillo, DDS – MRONJ Update & Emergency Prevention/Preparedness

The best way to respond to the most common emergencies or complications is preemptive preparation. We will also discuss an update on MRONJ (Medication-Related Osteonecrosis of the Jaws).
