Discussion panel, cadaver implantology workshop lead course lineup for CDA Presents


Two highlights of CDA Presents The Art and Science of Dentistry this May in Anaheim will be a lively and informative Q&A panel discussion featuring recognized leaders in restorative dentistry and a two-part hands-on workshop on implant placement and bone grafting using cadavers.

During the interactive panel discussion, “Restorative Dentistry Panel Q&A: Listen, Learn, Ask,” clinicians will learn when and why they should consider switching to a newer restorative material and how to identify bulk fill materials and techniques to achieve the best restorative results. Pros, cons and options in digital dentistry today will also be discussed.

“With numerous choices available in both materials and techniques for restorative procedures and the importance of predictability in those procedures, clinicians will want to attend this Q&A,” said John Reed, DDS, a member of the CDA Presents Board of Managers.

The panel of restorative leaders will provide guidance and thought based on both science and clinical observation, so attendees should go prepared to ask questions and learn. Moderated by Jeff J. Brucia, DDS, the panel will include John O. Burgess, DDS, MS, Gerard Kugel, DMD, MS, PhD, Edward A. McLaren, DDS, Troy A. Schmedding, DDS, and John F. Weston, DDS, all of whom will lead individual courses over the three-day convention.

“Restorative Dentistry Panel Q&A: Listen, Learn, Ask” will be held from 2 to 4:30 p.m. Friday, May 17. (See the CDA Presents Program, page 65.)

Another exciting course, the two-day “Cadaveric Hands-On Implant Placement and Bone-Grafting Workshop,” is geared for dentists of all skills levels, from basic to advanced. Using cadavers and working at their own pace, attendees will learn and perform socket grafting, flap manipulation and suturing, dental implant placement, bone manipulation, bone grafting, sinus grafting and ridge split procedures.

“Whether they are placing their first implant or looking to learn to place several implants at once, attendees will learn techniques that they’ll be able to put to use in their own practices,” Dr. Reed said.

The workshops will be led by two leading experts in the field of implant surgery, grafting and restorations — John C. Minichetti, DDS, and Matthew R. Young, DDS. A general dentist, Dr. Minichetti is the director of The Dental Implant Learning Center and the chief of dentistry at Englewood Hospital in New Jersey. He also serves on the American Board of Oral Implantology’s board of directors. Dr. Young is a diplomate of the ABOI and has more than 15 years of experience with implant surgery, grafting and restorations.

“Dr. Minichetti and Dr. Young put on a great course on implants using cadavers to educate dentists of all skill levels,” Reed said. “Attendees can select the difficulty of the procedures done during the hands-on session, so there is no pressure to work faster or do more than they are comfortable with.”

Part 1 of “Cadaveric Hands-On Implant Placement and Bone-Grafting Workshop” will be Friday, May 17, from 8:30 a.m. to 4 p.m., with Part 2 on Saturday, May 18, from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Registering for Part 1 will automatically enroll attendees in Part 2. (See the CDA Presents Program, page 49.)
