Northern California Dental Society Oral Systemic Health 2021/03/26 - 2021/03/26 The Gaia Hotel, Convention Center (530) 527-6764 http://NCDSonline.org The evidence connecting periodontal pathogens to chronic disease is firmly established.

California Society of Pediatric Dentistry Monitored Anesthetic Care in Pediatric Dentistry Online Course Online (925) 286-4187 http://www.cspd.org/oce A classical presentation by an icon of pediatric dentistry and of special interest to those who are interested in the current excellent level of pediatric dentistry in Hong Kong. Asian guidelines are sometimes different from US guidelines. Infants and young children with gross oral diseases (including nursing caries and traumatic injuries to the teeth and oralfacial tissues) present difficult problems for the child, the parent and dentist alike. Similarly, patients who are dental phobias and are in severe pain that cannot be easily controlled by local anesthetic alone will need special attention. Patients who suffer from major trauma and who require extensive surgical and root canal treatment will also need special behavior management techniques in order that the treatment may be carried out successfully. In addition, persons with minor physical handicaps, mental disabilities and severe dental phobias will require special behavior management techniques. The use of oral premedication agents, trans-cutaneous injection of a variety of medications as well as inhalation modalities using nitrous oxide will be discussed along with treatment under general anesthesia in the Hospital Operating Theatre. While the severely disabled and medically compromised patients would best be treated in the Hospital using general anesthesia, the majority of otherwise relatively healthy infants, young children and adults and minimally handicapped persons can now be treated in the properly equipped dental office under sedation. The presentation will show many clinical cases of various procedures including pulpectomy, stainless steel crown fabrication, endodontic procedures followed by pedodontics strip crowns, and surgery procedures for the removal of supernumerary teeth with some cases lasting three hours for total mouth rehabilitation. The net income per case can be appreciable. The lecture will be supplemented with a short video on how the procedures are carried out in our clinic. $70.00 2.5 View Details
Orange County Dental Society “Hit Me With Your Best Shot” Making local anesthesia more effective and more comfortable 2021/02/16 - 2021/02/16 Virtual (714) 634-8992 http://www.ocds.org Description: Patients do not want to experience pain during their dental treatment. Fortunately, local anesthesia forms the backbone of pain control techniques in dentistry. Local anesthetics are the safest and most effective drugs for the prevention and management of pain.

California Society of Pediatric Dentistry Less is More: Minimally Invasive Treatment Options for Enamel Caries and Defects Online Course Online (925) 286-4187 http://www.cspd.org/oce Unsightly congenital enamel defects and acquired white spot lesions are undesirable for many patients. They have historically been treated with invasive and expensive resin bonding and veneers. These lesions may be a source of embarrassment for some patients or may progress to cavitation (particularly post-orthodontic white spot lesions). In this course, the presenter will review three simple and painless options to manage enamel defects: MI Paste, Icon Resin Infiltration, and Etch/Bleach/Seal. These treatments can improve or even completely reverse the appearance while preserving tooth structure and repairing the patient’s natural enamel. Deciding when to surgically repair incipient interproximal lesions can be a challenge for practitioners.

California Society of Pediatric Dentistry Tooth Decay and Liver Decay: The Nexus of Physicians and Dentists Online Course Online (925) 286-4187 http://www.cspd.org/oce “Mountain Dew Mouth” has been a scourge for dentists for decades. But there is a new disease that is affecting even more people: Mountain Dew Liver. Even though non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) wasn’t discovered until 1980, up to 1/3 of Americans suffer from it including children: 13% of autopsies in children and 38% of obese children show NAFLD. The rates of tooth decay and NAFLD have been increasing with excessive sugar consumption contributing to both. Dietary sugar is composed of one molecule each of glucose and fructose with fracture being the primary driver of both diseases. While fructose doesn’t contribute to the mouth biofilm, it is metabolized by the oral bacteria into lactic acid which readily diffuses through the biofilm and into the tooth. Fructose is then turned into fat in the liver mitochondria which drives NAFLD which has now surpassed alcohol as the leading cause of liver transplantation. Children are the most susceptible to both diseases because they are the biggest sugar consumers. Physicians and dentist must be united in supporting public health measures to reduce chronic disease which includes diet modification. $70.00 3.0 View Details

Loma Linda University School of Dentistry Tooth Whitening Advances & Review of Operative and Prosthodontic Occlusion 2021/01/24 - 2021/01/24 Online course format via Zoom (909) 558-4685 https://dentistry.llu.edu/ Part 1: Novel Tray Options for Bleaching, Sensitivity, Caries Control, & Single dark teeth in a Pandemic While the typical bleaching tray fabrication is well described, sometimes there are situations for which either different tray fabrication options or different impression techniques may serve the patient and the practice better. In this pandemic when typical alginate impressions may not be desirable on some patients, thermoplastic trays may be indicated for children, orthodontic patients, and high caries patients. Restorative indications for anterior endodontically-treated teeth have changed such that a crown may not be indicated, prompting a new interest in bleaching. Also, non-endodontically-treated single dark teeth have some new bleaching options and materials for the easiest most successful outcome 1. Understand Bleaching vs. Whitening 2. Review General bleaching principles 3. Carbamide and hydrogen peroxide differences 4. Discuss different types of novel bleaching tray fabrication technique other than conventional, including thermoplastic trays and impression techniques 5. External bleaching treatment options for single dark teeth that have not received endodontic therapy, vital and non-vital. 6. Internal treatment options for non-vital teeth that have received endodontic therapy recently, or in the past. Part 2: Occlusal Adjustments and Splint treatment for Restorative stability Once the signs and symptoms of occlusal disease are identified, often the treatment of choice is to adjust the teeth in order to eliminate working and non-working interferences while maintaining anterior guidance. Also, changes between maximum intercuspation and centric relation (centric occlusion) may be needed for prosthodontic convenience. This presentation is a step-by-step application of rules for occlusal adjustments to harmonize teeth, joint and muscle function, which determines the type articulation and splint considerations for successful restorative treatment. Educational Objectives: 1. Learn basic rules for adjustment of posterior teeth into best intercuspation when a CR-MI discrepancy exists 2. Learn basic rules for maintaining contact on anterior teeth in excursive movements while adjusting into a proper intercuspation and esthetics 3. Learn adjustment rules for removal of excursive interferences in posterior teeth once MI has been stabilized 4. Discuss different methods for splint fabrication made directly in the mouth or on any articulator 5. Determine the simplest but most appropriate articulator choice for each restorative applications of indirect restorations. $195 DDS / $145 AUX 7 View Details

This mechanical approach to occlusion gradually evolved to become the biomechanical approach used today for restoring the natural dentition with fixed prosthodontics. Further refinement of our occlusal concepts became necessary with the introduction of implant-supported prosthodontics. This course will review comprehensive principles of occlusion for fixed, removable and implant prosthodontics. Procedures for complete-mouth rehabilitation with fixed prosthodontics also will be described and illustrated step by step. The program will conclude with a discussion of the relationship of occlusion and temporomandibular disorders.

Central Coast Dental Society "Patients, Pills and Pathologies, Why Medical History Clues are Critical to General Dental Treatment." & "Systemic Cyclones, The Biology of Disease and Wellness"" 2021/01/29 - 2021/01/29 Live Webinar (805) 544-1113 http://centralcoastds.org Synopsis: The number of Americans over the age of 65 exceeds 15% of the population and that number will increase by more than an additional 20% over the next few decades. As patient longevity increases, so will the number of conditions, diseases and potential disabilities that these patients will present with in our dental chairs. Medically compromised patients with age-related diseases such as cancers, or lifestyle-associated factors such as obesity, drug use and abuse, as well as the myriad of common; and often underestimated, abnormal physical conditions that we cross paths with on a day-to-day basis demand a sharpened focus during our treatment planning, delivery of care and periodontal maintenance in general dentistry. These patients require clinicians that have a competent insight into medicine and pharmacotherapies, and are capable of deducing findings from patient medical histories and willing to collaborate with patients’ medical providers to provide optimal dental care. Synopsis: Like spokes on a wheel that never stops, the cycle of infection, immune response, inflammation and recovery will never cease as long as we live. This program examines the deadly synergistic exacerbation between cardiovascular disease (CVD), which is the leading cause of death and disability for men and women in North America, and, the contributing role oral disease plays in patients with CVD. The conditions of metabolic syndrome, insulin resistance, and others with their devastating cardiovascular effects that lead to outcomes of heart attack and stroke will be discussed. $175.00 5 View Details
