Program Agenda

8:00am – 12:00pm

A Review of Surface Oral Mucosal Lesions

There are more than 500 oral diseases, primary or secondary

that occur in the mouth. The dentist is responsible for

detecting, diagnosing and treating these diseases since

the physician has only a rudimentary knowledge of oral

disease. Well over 100 of these lesions are relatively common

and are readily seen by the dental practitioner. This

presentation will review the clinical appearance and setting

of some of these lesions and will include their treatment

and prognosis.

Upon completion of the course, the participant will be able


• Identify a range and variety of oral surface mucosal


• Construct a short differential diagnosis of these lesions;

• List the features which characterize these mucosal


• Explain the relationship of these lesions with any

systemic conditions; and

• Utilize appropriate procedures to diagnose and treat

these lesions effectively.

8:00am – 12:00pm

Contemporary Treatment Concepts for Implant Rehabilitation of

Edentulous Mandibles

Implant prostheses have become a standard of care for

edentulous mandibles. They have significantly altered

treatment concepts for edentulous patients and have given

these patients superior prospects for functional and esthetic

rehabilitation. Current data is reviewed to prescribe

optimal implant numbers and distribution in the edentulous

mandible for maximum longevity and comfort. Removable

and fixed alternatives which provide favorable options

based on function, esthetics and costs are explored.

Specifically, Dr. Priest will detail protocols for attachment

and CAD/CAM overdentures using step-by-step guidelines

and video segments, followed by fixed restorations with

ceramics and resins. The technologies and protocols in

this presentation will help clinicians embrace contemporary

treatment options that provide their patients with superior

prosthetic outcomes.


Upon completion of the course, the participant will be able


• Give expedient methods of chairside attachment placement

for mandibular overdentures;

• List optimum position and distribution of implants for

overdentures and fixed complete dentures;

• Explain effective use of CAD/CAM technology for superior

framework fabrication; and

• Describe innovative protocols for contemporary treatment

options of edentulous mandibles.

8:00am – 10:30am

A Summary of Current Findings in Oral Pathology

This presentation will be a summary of new and current information

on the effectiveness of diagnostic aids available for the

detection and diagnosis of oral dysplasia and carcinoma; a

discussion of the status of bisphosphonates and osteonecrosis

of the jaws; and salivary diagnos tics. The new concept of at

least two types of squamous carcinoma of the mouth and the

perceived relationship of periodontal disease with systemic disease

will also be discussed.

Upon completion of the course, the participant will be able to:

• Effectively evaluate and understand the use of new aids for

the detection and diagnosis of oral dysplasia and cancer;

• Describe the function of bisphosphonates and how to integrate

this into dental practice;

• Explain the new salivary diagnostic tests available and how

this fits into dental practice;

• Describe the two separate types of oral cancer, their etiologies

and how this relates to prognosis;

• Summarize the role of Human Papilloma Virus in oral lesions;

• Explain the relationship of periodontal to other systemic diseases

such as coronary heart disease and diabetes.
