COURSES
PROGNOSIS FOR THE PERIODONTALLY COMPROMISED TOOTH
THOMAS J. KEPIC, D.D.S., M.S.D.
Course Description
A Historical Perspective Along With Short and Long-Term Follow up of Cases. Establishing an accurate periodontal prognosis is paramount to case success. Prognosis is often thought of as being “static,” established once, and never to change. However, proper periodontal therapy can alter a tooth’s prognosis, if done in time. This course will show both short and long-term cases where prognosis has changed during therapy.

Learning Objectives

•  Identifying the clinical factors used in assigning prognosis.
•  Understanding the historical research that leads to the modern day concept of prognosis.
•  Defining the new concept of periodontal diseases and host susceptibility as factors used in determining prognosis.

Dr. Kepic was president for the California Society of Periodontists in 2011 and is past president of the WSP. He is a guest lecturer at several universities in the U.S. and abroad and has published in peer-reviewed journals. Dr. Kepic practices in Upland, California.



IMPROVE YOUR QUALITY OF HYGIENE CARE
Jodi Deming, RDH
Course Description
Learn how to do what you have thought was impossible. Gain time in your hygiene appointment without compromising but even improving your quality of care.
•  Utilization of air polishing and piezoelectric scaling equipment
•  Application of supra and subgingival air polishing techniques
•  Characteristics and application for various air polishing powders
•  Implementation of air polishing therapy into your treatment protocol
Participants will have a sense of assurance and confidence in their approach to subgingival biofilm control being effective, efficient and safe.

Learning Objectives

•  Understand biofilm and it’s management.
•  Understanding the new disease model.
•  Polymicrobial Symbiotic and Dysbiosis- Beyond the red complex.
•  Connect the role of air polishing and piezoelectric scaling to successful biofilm management
•  Differentiate between supragingival and subgingival removal technology
•  Provide greater comfort to patients during clinical procedures
•  Identify steps to integrate air flow debridement into clinical protocols

About Dr. Deming
Jodi started practice as a dental hygienist in 1988. In the early 1990’s frustrated with the understanding of the etiology
of periodontal disease became involved with biofilm research. At that time the term was rarely used in dentistry except in the context of dental unit waterlines. As a clinical research associate
Jodi was involved with biofilm growth and therapeutic product development evaluating the effect on dental biofilms.

Understanding biofilms, she developed a passion about non-surgical therapy, root morphology, and the results of thorough periodontal debridement. Jodi has worked 28 years mastering non-surgical periodontal therapy techniques and procedures. She currently works in both periodontic and prosthodontic practices.

Jodi is a national and international educator, clinician, and lecturer. She has pre-sented over a 150 lectures and workshops on advanced integration of ultrasonic and hand instrumentation.

Jodi has served as adjunct faculty at the University of Southern California, School of Dentistry, Department of Dental Hygiene and at Spear Education. She is a Friends of Hu-Friedy Thought Leader valued for her involvement with biofilm research, instrument development and training. She is nationally recognized as an expert in endoscope and ultrasonic instrumentation.



FROM RISK TO RESULTS: PERIODONTAL INSTRUMENTATION FOR
THE ADVANCED PRACTITIONER

MONICA MONSANTOFILS BSDH, EPDH, PG DIP
Course Description
This course is based on current scientific literature providing the clinician with evidence based tools and strategies which include the use of periodontal risk assessment
protocols, salivary diagnostics, incorporation of the dental exam and progressive treatment planning.

Advantages of ultrasonic instrumentation will be examined as demonstrated in the current research for obtaining successful clinical outcomes while providing comprehensive patient care.


Learning Objectives

•  Examine the application of Evidence-based Decision Making (EBDM) for providing optimal patient outcomes by utilizing current concepts
in periodontal debridement.
•  Understand the unique relationship between oral and systemic conditions utilizing the patient’s risk factors including current medical status,
dental & periodontal considerations, and total patient history.
•  Discuss the use of salivary diagnostics as part of risk assessment to examine the presence of patho genic bacteria, genetic markers, and
elevated C-reactive protein which all play a role in periodontal disease susceptibility.
•  Develop an understanding of the role ultrasonic instrumentation plays in biofilm disruption, access to deeper periodontal pockets and
furcation involvement critical for successful clinical outcomes.
•  Recognize the need for a variety of ultrasonic inserts according to patient presentation and clinical significance.
•  Identify the elements of insert care and maintenance necessary for effective and efficient clinical outcomes.


About Dr. Monsantofils
Monica received a dental hygiene degree from Portland Community College, Bachelor of Science in Dental Hygiene from Eastern Washington University and PG Diploma of Dental Sciences from
King’s College London, UK. Monica brings over 30 years of clinical experience in periodontal and general practices and 13 years of academic experience to the Division. Monica’s academic experience includes advanced instrumentation, community oral health and restorative functions. Monica’s research “Oral Impacts on Daily Performances and Use of Dental Services in Schoolchildren” was published in the International Journal of Pediatric Dentistry. Monica’s focus is to provide dental professionals with current concepts and evidence based research to assist them in implementing effective and efficient evidence based treatment protocols in their clinical practice
