54th Annual Colonel Allyn D. Burke Memorial Dental Symposium

Saturday, June 29

Monterey Conference Center 1 Portola Plaza, Monterey, CA 93940

Silver Diamine Fluoride + Glass Ionomer Cement = SMART
Jeremy A. Horst, DDS, MS, PhD

The ADA is encouraging dentists to use silver diamine fluoride (SDF) specifically and to prioritize non-restorative treatments generally. While SDF and complimentary techniques are faster and less invasive, monitoring outcomes and patient decisions are fundamentally different. This lecture will focus on the integration of SDF and other non-restorative treatments, such as glass ionomer sealants, ART and the Hall technique, into practice. Dr. Horst will examine clinical protocols, as well as the clinical trials and the studies behind them. Monitoring for responses and building these methods into a comprehensive treatment plan will be a major focus.

Diagnosis and Management of Periodontitis and Peri-implantitis for the General Dentist
Richard Nathan, DMD, MS

Given the fact that millions of dental implants have already been placed and are in the recall programs of the nation’s dental offices, it is imperative that the general dentist has a working knowledge of the diagnosis and management of periodontitis and peri-implantitis. This lecture will focus on subjects including the etiology, signs and symptoms of periodontitis and peri-implantitis, as well as non-surgical, laser and surgical therapy for the management of these diseases. Dr. Nathan will examine the cofactors that may predispose patients to future implant failure, present a chairside crown lengthening technique and discuss the systemic host disease connection.

Clinical Treatment Planning and Problem Solving: When it Doesn’t Go by the Book
Robert A. Lowe, DDS

In today’s world, the clinical practice of restorative dentistry is an exciting and challenging endeavor for the “wet-gloved practitioner.” Consistent, predictable, clinical techniques to create quality dental restorations in a time-efficient manner form the basis of every procedure that we perform for our patients. Every day we are faced with clinical situations whose solutions don’t fit textbook situations. It is important that we, as clinicians, offer as many possible solutions to the patient so that the treatment can be customized to fit their specific goals. Dr. Lowe will discuss creative ways to handle clinical situations that don’t necessarily follow the textbook, helping the practitioner out of situations that can waste time and money, let alone avert a clinical failure.
