Tooth Preserving Dentistry
Richard A. Young, DDS

This course will review some of the techniques, materials and key research about tooth preservation and give you an introduction on how to perform advanced adhesion dentistry simply in your office on a daily basis. With the advanced adhesion techniques available today, supported by an overwhelming amount of published science, it is now possible to mimic the bond strength of the dentino-enamel junction (DEJ) with certain techniques and materials.

Does TMD Stand for “Too Many Disappointments?”
Andrew Young, DDS, MSD

Treating temporomandibular disorders (TMD) can be disappointing, often because of the apparent complexity of diagnosing and the myriad of opinions on treatment approaches. This lecture will simplify the diagnostics of TMD to a level that will efficiently serve most of the TMD cases you see. We will then teach you how to hone in on causes for each individual patient. Instruction in safe and conservative treatments will follow. Clinical cases will be used as examples to help you apply your knowledge.

Andrew Young, DDS, MSD, is director of the Pacific Center for Orofacial Disorders where he manages patients with TMD and neuropathic pain and directs the orofacial pain curriculum at the Dugoni School of Dentistry. He received an MSD in orofacial pain from University of Medicine and Dentistry of New Jersey and is board certified with the American Board of Orofacial Pain. He is a fellow of the American Academy of Orofacial Pain and has published several studies in peer-reviewed journals.

Removable Partial Dentures
Mark A. Dellinges, DDS, MA

Despite advances in modern dentistry, an increasing number of patients will continue to require removable partial denture services. These cases continue to present problems for general dentists. This lecture will provide you with the current techniques for the construction of functional and aesthetic removable partial dentures. It will help you meet the challenge of providing predictable partial dentures in a timely manner and raise your confidence level and improve your skills for dealing with your own removable partial denture cases.  

Mark A. Dellinges, DDS, MA, is a clinical professor in the Department of Preventive and Restorative Dental Sciences at UCSF School of Dentistry.
