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.

DENTAL MANAGEMENT OF PATIENTS ON ANTITHROMBOTIC MEDICATIONS
DAVID J. LASHO, D.D.S., M.S.D.
Course Description
With the aging of our population, increasing numbers of patients seeking dental treatment are taking various antithrombotic (antiplatelet and anticoagulation) medications. This presentation will review the hemostasis process, the phases of clotting cascade, and discuss common systemic conditions where antithrombotic drugs are indicated. A review and update of current medications will be included. Based on current literature evidence and clinical experience, recommendations on managing these patients in your dental practice will be discussed to make us both more knowledgeable and enhance our comfort level.

Learning Objectives

•  Discuss how hemostasis is achieved.
•  Define medical conditions for which the physician may prescribe antiplatelet and/or anticoagulation medications.
•  Improve your knowledge of antithrombotic medications; including the new drugs.
•  Learn techniques to comfortably manage these patients during their dental treatment.
•  Provide greater comfort to patients during clinical procedures
•  Identify steps to integrate air flow debridement into clinical protocols

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.
