PROGNOSIS FOR THE PERIODONTALLY COMPROMISED TOOTH
Thomas J. Kepic, D.D.S., M.S.D..
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.
At the conclusion of this course, attendees will be able to:

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 bio lm 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 bio lm 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 bio lm research, instrument development and training. She is nationally recognized as an expert in endoscope and ultrasonic instrumentation.
PERI-IMPLANTITIS: PREVALENCE, RISK FACTORS, AND NON-SURGICAL TREATMENT
Diane M Daubert, PhD, MS, RDH
This course will provide evidence based information on peri-implant disease with emphasis on a team/interdisciplinary approach to treatment. The program will present research ndings on risk factors for peri-implant disease and preventive measures to incorporate into the implant treatment plan prior to implant placement. In addition, the program will review diagnosis and prevalence of peri-implant disease and innovative non-surgical therapies for disease prevention and treatment. We will cover microbial and epigenetic ndings relative to dental implants.
Attendees will gain the following fundamentals:

She has authored numerous journal articles on various aspects of peri-implant disease, including clinical practice guidelines for patients with complex implant-supported restorations, prevalence and risk factors associated with peri-implant disease, and titanium corrosion as a modi er of peri-implant health. Her research interests involve basic science, translational and clinical studies on peri-implantitis including prevalence and risk factors, host response to titanium, titanium corrosion as a modi er of the implant microbiome, peri-implant health and epigenetic changes associated with implant health and disease, along with the efficacy of subgingival glycine powder air polishing. She plays a vital role in pre- doctoral periodontal education at the University of Washington along with mentoring periodontal residents in their master’s research. Diane has lectured nationally and internationally on periodontics updates, peri-implant prevalence and etiology, and on changes in the eld of dentistry.
