Hot Topics in Dentistry 2011

PROGRAM

Dentistry is changing so rapidly that keeping abreast is

becoming an increasingly diffi cult task. So many self-appointed

experts exist in the CE arena that separating fact from opinion

is a real problem. Get accurate and factual information based

on research, not hearsay, from those in the know. This course

is intended to update the general practitioner regarding a

number of “bread and butter” topics of vital importance

to today’s practice. Included will be the latest information

on topics such as: new all-ceramic systems for crown and

bridge, diagnosis and management of the high risk caries

patient, new cements and where to use them, MMPs, and

their importance to the clinical success of dentin bonding,

an update in adhesive materials, non-carious cervical

lesions and how best to treat them, desensitizing agents

that work, along with vital information on numerous other

materials and techniques in light of the latest clinical

research. Topics will be presented in the context of their

clinical applications, with recommendations for achieving the

best results in your practice.

Don’t miss this opportunity to “get the word!”

OBJECTIVES

1. Distinguish among the many new adhesive systems and the

clinical factors involved in optimizing their use.

2. Describe the role of MMPs in dentin bonding and relate their

clinical importance.

3. Discuss the causes, prevention, and treatment on noncarious

cervical lesions.

4. Recognize the many new dental ceramic systems, and

describe the pros and cons of each.

5. Describe the best means for managing high caries risk

patients.

6. Distinguish among the various new types of dental cements

and relate the indications for each.

CITA Manikin-Based Endodontic Examination

Preparation Course: A Hands-On Review

PROGRAM

Whether you are preparing to take the CITA manikin

based examination or simply want to refresh your endodontic

skills, this hands-on course will be invaluable in

meeting your needs. You will be guided through a series of easy to follow

steps that will result in consistent endodontic preparations and obturations,

in addition to satisfying the rigorous CITA criteria. Many dentists encounter

problems during endodontic preparation, including diffi culty in locating canal

orifi ces, creating straight line access to the canals, instrument separation

and perforation errors. The obturation phase can prove to be equally challenging

to attain consistent satisfying results. By the end of this course, you

will be able to anticipate potential hazards before they occur and complete

straight forward endodontic cases with confi dence.

In this course you will use the same laboratory set-up used for the CITA

exam. You will also tour the facility where the CITA exam will be conducted

to allow you to be better prepared. Instructors will provide tips for preparing

for the CITA exam, including what to bring with you to the exam and how to

set-up your workspace.

OBJECTIVES

1. To review the biologic and mechanical principles of root

canal therapy.

2. To carry out all necessary steps to instrument, disinfect

and obturate root canal spaces.

3. Acquire the ability to critically self-evaluate your work.

4. To assist you in preparing to take the CITA exam.

WHO SHOULD ATTEND

Anyone who wants to improve their Endodontic techniques and dentists

preparing to take the Endodontics portion of the CITA examination.

27th Annual Prosthodontics, Dental Implants, and Oral Surgery for

General Practitioners on Hilton Head Island

PROGRAM

The longer we practice, the older and more complex our patients

seem to become. Interestingly, this “Baby Boomer” population holds

the largest amount of expendable income to devote to oral health care

in the history of the US. The 2011 UNC Hilton Head CE program will

focus on topics of interest to all practitioners, with a particular emphasis

on treating the complex, yet often debilitated patient. Treatments for

the debilitated dentate, partially edentulous, and denture wearing

patient will be described, and cutting edge technologies will be shown

that will help the general practitioner treatment plan, and treat, this

growing cadre of complex patients. New technologies and materials for

dentures, implants, and various prosthodontic treatments will be shown.

Assessment of the physical health of patients, along with insights into

complex debilitating conditions, will be shared. This program is a “mustsee”

for those who treat aging patients. Join our guest speakers, Dr.

Tom McGarry (Prosthodontist, Okla.) and Dr. Glenn Reside (OMFS, UNC)

along with UNC Prosthodontics faculty for our 27th consecutive year on

“the Island.” You will gain valuable clinical insights and techniques, while

enjoying the wonderful amenities of Hilton Head Island, SC!

and each year the course is exciting and

applicable.”

– Robert Bartusiak, McMurray, PA

UPON COMPLETION, YOU WILL UNDERSTAND

1. How to diagnose and treatment plan complex prosthodontic

patients.

2. How general systemic health can impact oral health, and vice versa.

3. When to keep ailing and failing teeth, and when to remove them and

replace with alternatives.

4. The new and innovative materials and equipment that will enhance

your practice productivity, and restoration longevity.

5. How to properly treat for various implant therapies.

“ I’ve come every year for at least 10 years

Esthetic and Conservative

Operative Dentistry for

Limited

to 20!

General Practitioners: Keys to

Success with Anterior Composites

PROGRAM

Confused by all the commercial institutes and CE

offerings in esthetic dentistry Then come and get

the FACTS based on sound research and clinical

evidence. Come for a comprehensive, in-depth continuum

in conservative esthetic dentistry that includes Hands-On

multi-media presentations and informative seminars,

complemented by hands-on instruction in a simulation pre-clinical

laboratory. Join renowned UNC faculty for an extensive hands-on

program on anterior composites, posterior composites, and porcelain

veneers over the course of 3 modules on conservative esthetic

dentistry. You may opt to attend all 3 or select the program that best

suits your needs. On Friday, August 26, 2011, join Drs. Ritter, Swift,

and Vargas for a 6-hour program on “Keys to Success with Anterior

Composites.” On Friday, March 2, 2012, return for a 6-hour session

on “Keys to Success with Posterior Composites” with the same

faculty. Then on Friday, May 11, 2012, join Drs. Harald Heymann,

Ritter, and Swift as they explore “Porcelain Veneers.”

MODULE 1 – Keys to Success with Anterior Composites

Adhesives and composites have evolved substantially over the

past years. Their application has become increasingly simplifi ed,

but that does not necessarily mean they have become better. The

disproportionate emphasis on “new and improved” materials as

opposed to case selection and application technique is confusing

for clinicians. “What adhesive/composite system should I use

to obtain good results” is a popular question that is too often

answered based on personal preferences and weak evidence. This

UNC workshop will dispel some of the myths that besiege adhesive

dentistry and composites in the context of anterior restorations.

Participants will attend an interactive session with focus on the state

of the current adhesive and composite systems, and participate in

a hands-on simulation session where adhesives and composites

will be applied to several clinical situations (extensive Class IV

restorations, direct composite veneers, and Class III and Class V

restorations). The hands-on session will comprise at least 50% of

the program and participants will work in simulation stations where

several exercises will be completed in composite teeth that simulate

the optical charateristics and anatomy of natural teeth. Concepts of

shade selection, anatomical layering, and custom matrix techniques

will be thoroughly discussed and applied. The program is limited to

20 participants to maximize the interaction during the didactic and

hands-on sessions. All materials and supplies, including some of the

newest adhesives and composites on the market, will be provided

for you to sample during the course. You should bring

your magnifi cation glasses or loupes to the course.

the necessity to cancel a program, the registrants will receive a full refund.

basis. Special registration and cancellation policies may apply. Tuition discounts

cannot be applied to limited attendance courses.
