dynamic on-site recreation, and breathtakingly beautiful

gardens under glass. Signature atriums, recreate three Florida

environments, immersing you in the sights and sounds that

schedule a personal workout

session at the 4,000-square-foot

fitness center.

Welcome!

Letter from the General Chairperson

As General Chairman of the

Committee on FNDC, I am excited to

tell you about FNDC2011. The FNDC

Committee plans years in advance for

each FNDC and I think we have a great

slate for 2011. FNDC2011 is June 9, 10 and

11 and this year pre-registration is FREE

to all FDA Member dentists!!! That’s right—register by May

27 to attend FNDC and as a FDA Member you can come for

FREE!

This year’s program chairperson, Dr. Bruce McDonald,

has a strong scientific program for dentists and their staff

with a good variety of lectures and hands-on offerings. For

the dentist, the variety of lectures and clinicians offered at

FNDC2011 is sure to bring something new to your practice of

dentistry.

NEW THIS YEAR! We invite all FDA Member Dentists

to take advantage of a new opportunity we are offering

at FNDC—attend the Opening Session of the FDA House

of Delegates on Thursday morning and be eligible for

some great prizes to be given away in the exhibit hall that

afternoon. The Opening Session is your opportunity to hear

what is happening in organized dentistry and see how your

membership dollars are advocating for you and your practice.

We will celebrate as a group on Friday night at an event for

all attendees and their families in the beautiful Gaylord Palms

atrium. There will be music and dancing, balloon artists, face

painters, and all kinds of great food. Come early, stay late.

You will not want to miss this!

Our exhibit hall is filled with exhibitors waiting to show you

all the latest in technology and materials for your practice. It

is a one stop shopping experience for all that dentistry has to

offer.

Please join me this June and enjoy the great meeting and

all the excitement the FNDC2011 has to offer!

Letter from the 2011 Program Chair

FNDC2011! It is right around the

corner and once again the FNDC

committee has put together an

outstanding program for you and your

staff. FNDC2011 is June 9, 10 and 11.

This year’s theme, “Dentistry,

Gateway to Good Health” highlights the

many opportunities that we as dentists have to influence

not only our patients’ dental health but their overall health

as well. With our healthcare system strained almost to the

breaking point, the dental office with its established recall

and check-up systems, is perfectly poised to help monitor our

patient’s overall health. Simple saliva tests awaiting Food

and Drug Administration approval will soon allow us to screen

our patients for an array of diseases long before clinical

symptoms appear. Pardon me as I take liberty with a familiar

advertising phrase but “there’s a class for that”—check out

David Wong’s Salivary Diagnostics for Chairside Screening on

Friday. I think as you browse through the course offerings you

will see a wide variety of lectures and hands-on workshops

that will make a difference in your practice immediately. You

will also be reminded that FNDC is your best CE value.

Attend the FNDC Opening Session and hear an important

message from our President Dr. Larry Nissen, an update from

the Florida Board of Dentistry and a greeting from our 17th

District Trustee, Dr. Sam Low. Immediately following the

Opening Session we will adjourn to the exhibit hall where

there will be opportunities to win prizes, network with

colleagues and visit our exhibiting companies. As always, the

exhibit hall will be packed with products and technologies to

keep your practice on the cutting edge.

Enjoy the breathtaking atmosphere of the Gaylord

Palms Resort, and take advantage of all the technology, the

friendship, and the learning that membership in the Florida

Dental Association has to offer.

Dr. Gregory M. Lutke DDS graduated from Baylor College of Dentistry in 1985 and maintains a private practice in Plano, Texas

specializing in esthetic zone dentistry. As founder and CEO of Dallas Dental Solutions, a digital hands-on facility where Dr.

Lutke teaches advanced hands-on courses on digital communication technology as it relates to dentistry. These courses

focus on the high end of digital technology which includes “film quality” digital photography, Adobe Photoshop, Microsoft

PowerPoint, and digital video, including the new “high definition” DV standard. The resulting skills allow dentists to fully

communicate, visually, complex multi-disciplinary cases to patients. The technology skills also empower dentists to practice

in a completely digital dental office- free from paper, film, and filing cabinets. This level of digital dentistry is vastly different

than earlier systems and is most characterized as both modern and elegant.

Dr. Lutke serves on the AACD’s special committee on Digital Photography for Accreditation,

which has recently been full implemented into the accreditation process along with the 35mm

film standard. He also was the chartering president of The Texas Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry

in 2003.

sorry you missed a single minute.

#1- finding the Latch

The course will provide an overview of current hygiene

treatment standards, products and processes, used in

state of the art dental hygiene practice. The curriculum

has been designed to address all relevant areas of

clinical dental hygiene and will be delivered in a fresh and

exciting fashion. You will gain knowledge of what the

if your current treatment standards, products and

processes are providing optimal hygiene care to patients;

and identify areas where improvements can be made in

your hygiene practices.

#3 - fitting the Keys

You will find a new comfort level as you find new keys to

professional growth, networking and satisfaction and

new exciting methods. You will learn how patients, staff

develop a proposal to the dentist regarding trying new

standards, products and/or processes in the office.

#2 - exploring the Key ring

Dental hygiene does not thrive solely on scraping and

polishing. You will be given exposure to models of

practice being utilized in today’s clinical environments

across the country; discuss scientific support of each

practice model; and determine what key components

you want to use in unlocking your own professional gate.

Complete Dentures C14

8:00 AM-11:00 AM

PROSTHODONTICS / CE Credits 3

Audience: Dentists

Complete Dentures is the most unpredictable

treatment that a dentist provides for their

patients. In complete dentures, you go from

the wax-up to finalization and the patient

does not have the opportunity to “test drive”

a provisional denture. A new and sophisticated

denture protocol will be presented whereby

a provisional treatment denture is first

constructed. The patient will wear the

“training wheels” until they are happy. The

provisional denture is used as a blueprint to

make the final dentures. If dental implants are

part of the treatment plan then the planning

stage with CAT-Scans and other protocols is

done while the patient is in the provisional

dentures. This is pre=surgical prosthodontics.

Turbyfill, Dr. Walter

Complete Dentures that Oppose

Natural Teeth C27

12:30 PM-3:30 PM

PROSTHODONTICS / CE Credits 3

Audience: Dentists

The number of people that are totally

edentulous is increasing. The number of

people retaining teeth in one arch is increasing.

The reason for this is that the total number

of senior citizens is growing because people

are living longer. The maxillary denture that

occludes with mandibular teeth is more of a

challenge than it seems. In these cases we

must be aware that malocclusion can destroy

the maxillary bone. The challenge of a denture

in one arch and natural teeth in the other

arch will be explained. The use of custom

gold chewing surfaces and the destructive

potential of a non-stable occlusion will be

discussed. The comfortable and functional

mandibular distal extension partial denture is

a must in treating these cases.

review data which can then be used to improve

our understanding on how to make aligner

treatment more efficient.

Salivary Diagnostics for Chairside

ORAL PATHOLOGY / CE Credits 3

Audience: Dentists, Hygienists

Saliva has long been considered a “mirror

of the body” that reflects the state of a

person’s overall health. In recent years,

saliva has attracted widespread interest as

a diagnostic medium for rapid, point-of-care

testing. The advantages of using saliva for

disease diagnostics include ease of access,

noninvasive sample collection, increased

acceptance by patients, and reduced risks of

infectious disease transmission. Advances in

the science of salivary diagnostics will lead to

identification of disease signature patterns

of candidate biomarkers and/or confirmation

of genetic susceptibility for some conditions.

As salivary diagnostic applications advance,

dentists are encouraged to take leadership

roles in integrating the tests and related

technologies into clinical practice, consistent

with the best available scientific evidence.

The Vast World of Removable

Prosthodontics C40

9:00 AM-12:00 PM

PROSTHODONTICS / CE Credits 3

Audience: Dentists

Of all things that can occur during a

person’s life, loss of the natural teeth can

be one of the worst. Keeping patients

from going into full dentures should be one

of the goals of the removable prosthetic

practice. If the teeth are lost then it must

be understood that if implants are planned

it is the restorative dentist’s responsibility

to plan exact position for the implants with

pre-surgical prosthodontics whether the

dentist places them or refers for the surgery.

Three dimensional CAT scan planning will be

demonstrated. The digital world of dentistry

is here and it is a huge task to keep up with

these develops and it is not easy. Many

subjects from precision partial denture onto

one tooth, keeping roots to preserve bone and

porcelain crown and bridge applied to partial

denture frames will be covered.
