How to Keep Your Schedule Full and Avoid Costly No-shows Course Code: 1049 2:00pm to 5:00pm CE Credits: 3 ROOM 503/504 Decrease cancellations and no-shows starting today using proven methods. Other than legitimate last minute issues, what causes patients to cancel without notice, or no-show altogether?

Caries Risk Assessment: A New System for Private Practice: Part 2
Course Code: 1059 9:30am to 12:30pm CE Credits: 3/course ROOM 103/105
Part 2 This is a continuation of Dr. Norton’s morning course. As we push the boundaries for rehabilitation with dental implants, we have seen a significant trend towards working outside of the safety zone. Reduced healing times, immediate placement and, most significantly, immediate restoration have found favor in an attempt to save time, to reduce tissue loss and to provide an instant fixed esthetic solution. Consider how such cases can be executed in a clinically predictable manner utilizing the latest concepts in virtual planning and how this plan can be transferred via either simple anatomical guides or computer-based stereolithographic guides for optimal implant placement. Achieve functional and esthetic success using prosthetic manipulation of soft tissues with temporary as well as definitive prostheses with a computerized virtual abutment design system, in particular when used with zirconia materials.

Millions of patients are experiencing signs and symptoms of masticatory system related problems that are most effectively diagnosed and managed by well prepared dentists. Poor bite relationships are the number one source of masticatory system imbalance and dysfunction. Only dentists can definitively treat malocclusions... and only well prepared dentists can treat malocclusions predictably. Clenching, bruxing, and many headaches are destructive muscle habits that are very manageable. Temporomandibular joint derangements are serious medically compromising conditions, rarely diagnosed in most medical offices, but very effectively managed. Well prepared dentists can offer predictable solutions for patients with snoring or mild to moderate apnea. There are local medical conditions in the head region that can be recognized. The oral-systemic connection, both related to the oral bacteria/cardio-vascular disease link, as well as nutritional and whole health counseling, are wonderful areas of service. The concerns described above often represent pre-restorative considerations for the dentist committed to complete dentistry- health, stability, comfort and esthetics. There is great opportunity for dentists to expand their services (and lines of business), by accepting the challenge to learn the available knowledge and skills, to become the true physicians of the masticatory system. Following the presentation, each attendee should be able to immediately add new services for the patients they serve. Dr. DeWitt Wilkerson has worked in Dr. Peter Dawson's private practice group since 1982. He serves as the Director of Dental Medicine for the Dawson Academy for Advanced Dental Study, having presented over 750 days of educational instruction worldwide.

The management of your restorative patients requires a global approach. Viewing your patients as more than just occlusal surfaces and incisal edges is integral to providing optimal dental as well as medical health and well being. Investigate protocols for addressing your restorative dental patients with excessive occlusal wear, GERD, skeletal discrepancies, jaw or joint pain and snoring and sleep apnea through the use of patient specific examples. Dr. Edward Zebovitz is board-certified by the American Board of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeon and a Fellow of the American Association of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeons. Dr. Zebovitz’s practice is limited to reconstruction of jaw and facial deformities and the relationship of temporomandibular disorders and occlusion and is located in Annapolis, Maryland.

The ABC network show Extreme Makeover has raised patient’s awareness of advanced esthetic procedures and thousands of patients are seeking dental health and cosmetic improvement. Although today’s dentists have trained to accomplish advanced restorative and cosmetic procedures, unfortunately many are unable to turn knowledge into reality. Get more fulfillment in your dentistry by changing people’s lives through comprehensive care. Move your patients beyond patch and repair procedures that are just enough to stay within the insurance limits. This advanced seminar is designed for the dentists and staff in offices that use articulators and have an understanding of occlusion, utilize composite and porcelain veneer restorations, use digital photography and desire to perform more comprehensive dentistry in their daily practice. Dr. Susan Hollar maintains a private practice in Arlington, Texas limited to reconstructive and esthetic dentistry. She is an accredited fellow member of the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry and one of thirty-seven Pankey Scholars. Mr. Mark Absher, BS has been office manager and marketing director in the Arlington, Texas dental practice of his wife, Dr. Susan Hollar since 1982. Prior to that, he was a systems analyst and computer programmer. Mark is also owner of DentalOptimization, a website development company catering exclusively to restorative and cosmetic dentists.
