ymposium 2022 will be an incredible four days of discovery, breakthrough information and awe-inspiring ideas, guided by some of the world’s most eminent clinicians and business minds. This kind of exchange of energy and emotion is what we’ve all missed, and what we look forward to when we meet at the end of January 2022 at our old stomping grounds—The Ritz-Carlton, Laguna Niguel. Just call us the OGs of the OC when it comes to bringing Seattle Study Club members to this beautiful seaside town. It will be our third Symposium at this welcoming hotel, and we are certain to remember the good times we’ve had while envisioning all that’s to come at this meeting. We’re home again! We’re calling our 2022 meeting The Game Is Afoot because solving complex cases is a high stakes game—a game of wits and adventure, pitting one’s diagnostic skills against many a clinical dilemma, exploring treatment options with the interdisciplinary team, coming up with a plan that resolves not only the functional but also the esthetic issues, and executing on the treatment in a way that makes both the patient and the clinician happy. This is not a game for the faint of heart. It takes guts, determination and maybe even some deductive reasoning to figure out these cases (not unlike the intriguing adventures of another OG—Sherlock Holmes— and more recently, his younger sister Enola). The first three days of this meeting are devoted to the fundamentals—diagnosis, treatment planning and treatment—and the fourth day brings it all together as we explore the application of the underlying principles to some extremely complex cases. With an amazing clinical faculty and Seattle Study Club favorite Kevin Joyce as our emcee, our four days in Laguna promise to challenge our minds and delight our hearts. Of course, there will also be some intrigue that is yours to sleuth out over the course of the meeting. Can’t wait to see you there! Michael Cohen, DDS, MSD, FACD Founder, Seattle Study Club

The Case of Mistaken Identity KEYNOTE: How to Change Anyone’s Mind JONAH BERGER, PHD Everyone has something they want to change. Salespeople want to change the customer’s mind. Managers want to change employee behavior. Leaders want to change the way an entire organization does business. But change is hard, and often even after persuading and pushing—nothing happens. Things change at a glacial pace, if at all. Could there be a better way? In this new talk, Wharton professor and change expert Dr Jonah Berger outlines a revolutionary approach to change. Successful change isn’t about pushing harder or exerting more energy. It’s about removing barriers. Whether trying to change how consumers think, motivate people to act, or shift the way an entire industry does business, Berger teaches how to become a catalyst.

Upon completion of this session, attendees should be able to: •

Overcome resistance by reducing friction and lowering hurdles to action.

Discover hidden factors that impede change.

Identify why their biggest competitor is inertia, and why big changes require asking for less, not pushing for more. LECTURE, UP TO 60 MINUTES SELF-IMPROVEMENT AGD SUBJECT CODE: 770

Why Are You Doomed to Fail Before You’ve Even Begun Patient Treatment? SREENIVAS KOKA, DDS, MS, PHD, MBA, FACD Healthcare, in its finest iterations, relies on accurate diagnoses being made. Without recognition of the conditions and diseases with which a patient presents, or for which he or she is at risk, clinicians are constrained in their ability to treat patients properly and meet their needs and desires. How can a clinician treat a patient well when they don’t know what they are treating? This presentation will describe the most important misdiagnoses made by clinicians, discuss the common root causes of misdiagnoses, and present options for improving diagnostic capabilities to enhance the patient care experience.

Upon completion of this session, attendees should be able to: •

Describe the most important missed diagnoses and misdiagnoses made by oral health care providers.

Recognize the main causes of misdiagnoses.

Improve patient care by improving diagnostic capabilities of the healthcare team. LECTURE, UP TO 45 MINUTES MULTIDISCIPLINARY TOPICS AGD SUBJECT CODE: 149

Virtual Planning and Guided Execution in Perio Surgery GUSTAVO GIORDANI, DDS With the use of technology, diagnosing and planning cases involving periodontal plastic surgery becomes an increasingly predictable process in terms of results. Understanding the structures that make up the periodontium through digital exams and the overlapping of files with restorative planning is another level of planning. This presentation will show how to work with virtual tools for periodontal planning associated with esthetic rehabilitation, answer questions about determining biological width, identify when to open or not open a flap, discern at what time during the treatment to perform the surgery, and more.

Learning Networks and Collaborative Treatment: Why You Will Never Practice Alone Again SEAN K. CARLSON, DMD, MS This presentation will focus on learning networks and collaborative treatment. It will address why online clinical sharing has changed the practice of dentistry forever. It will also address why this shift will be much more powerful than one may think. Thousands of global doctors are already collaborating and learning securely online. In fact, collaborative treatment will soon be expected by patients. Complex problems often deserve global consultation. This lecture will cover how artificial intelligence will help provide better care, and how its limitations may burden progress. Understanding this new world is essential to staying relevant in the coming decades. Join Dr Sean K. Carlson for this in-depth presentation about the future of clinical sharing. He will use multiple clinical examples of collaborative learning technology that are changing how patient care is planned and delivered.

Upon completion of this session, attendees should be able to: •

Learn the details of HIPAA compliance in clinical sharing.

Understand the meaning of learning networks and collaborative treatment.

Identify the benefits of collaborative treatment to their practice.

The Future Is Now: Leveraging Digital Workflows and 3DPrinting to Enhance Dental and Maxillofacial Rehabilitation DANIEL HAMMER, DDS, AND FAYETTE WILLIAMS, DDS, MD, FACS The application of computer-assisted design and manufacturing, 3D printing technology, and intraoral scanners to patient care has led to an unprecedented improvement in patient outcomes. By pairing these technologies with meticulous diagnoses and treatment planning principles, dentists have been able to achieve outcomes never thought possible. Digital workflows have improved patient care, significantly decreased treatment time, and reduced healthcare delivery costs. This presentation will expose attendees to the foundational elements of these technologies and provide case studies demonstrating what is now possible in dental and maxillofacial rehabilitation.

Upon completion of this session, attendees should be able to: •

Demonstrate the utilization of computer-aided design to enhance diagnosis and treatment planning in dental and maxillofacial rehabilitation.

Introduce the application of 3D printing to complex dental and maxillofacial rehabilitation.

What’s the Difference? An Alternate Approach to Wading Through the Waters of Oral Pathology ASHLEIGH BRIODY, DDS, MS In the sea of medicine and dentistry, clinicians are routinely asked for a definitive diagnosis—an answer to the question: What is this? But perhaps a shift in perspective would be a better guide to accurate diagnosis. Instead of trying to fit a patient into a descriptive box, it may be more helpful to recognize when their condition does not fit into the box. This course will compare similar-appearing common entities and address the question: What is it not?

Upon completion of this session, attendees should be able to: •

Differentiate between similar clinical appearances.

Recognize when to treat, how to treat, and when to refer. LECTURE, UP TO 90 MINUTES ORAL MEDICINE, ORAL DIAGNOSIS, ORAL PATHOLOGY AGD SUBJECT CODE: 730

Esthetic Diagnosis: APragmatic Approach MARCELO CALAMITA, DDS, MS, PHD Restorative dentistry is expanding its limits and evolving every day. Excellence will only predictably be achieved through a systematic approach based on the best available scientific evidence. The use of practical and effective workflows provides quality control and effective information management, ensuring each critical point is checked and documented in the treatment plan. This course aims to discuss the essential esthetic aspects to be addressed during the anamnesis and clinical examination. The patient’s wishes and expectations should be made clear during the initial conversation so they can be rigorously investigated during the clinical examination. All information collected should be correlated with functional, structural and biological findings so the diagnosis, indications and limitations of the treatment can be accurately discussed with the patient.

Upon completion of this session, attendees should be able to: •

Identify critical esthetic aspects that need to be considered during the anamnesis and clinical examination.

Introduce a systematic approach to consistently analyze data gathered and insert them into the treatment plan.

Negotiate conflicts between the ideal esthetic design versus biological, structural and functional needs. LECTURE, UP TO 90 MINUTES ESTHETICS/COSMETIC DENTISTRY AGD SUBJECT CODE: 780

The Soft Tissue Defect Dilemma: What to Do Where? ROBERT CARVALHO DA SILVA, DDS, PHD It is clear that a thick and stable soft tissue complex around teeth and implants is essential to achieve esthetic success, facilitate adequate oral hygiene, and prevent biological complications. The objective of this presentation is to first differentiate between soft tissue deviations which may be acceptable and those which will most probably lead to significant deformities and esthetic compromise. Clinical case examples will then be presented to distinguish between myriad treatment possibilities and to guide in choosing the right treatment for each particular situation. Finally, participants will be presented with soft tissue treatment dilemmas to solve on their own followed by the actual treatment solutions.

Upon completion of this session, attendees should be able to: •

Recognize the types of gingival defects and determine the most predictable solution for each situation.

Review treatment techniques that will lead to more pleasing esthetic results and effective hygienic management. LECTURE, UP TO 90 MINUTES PERIODONTICS AGD SUBJECT CODE: 490

Customizing Patient Needs in a Very Easy, Efficient and Effective Way with Standardized Processes MARTIN GOLLNER, DMD, DDS In this workshop, attendees will focus on using the PlaneSystem, which collects relevant patient diagnostic data and synchronizes it to match the actual anatomical situation in an extremely accurate way. It is an innovative approach for capturing and measuring patient-specific occlusal information. With this software system, the parameters used to digitally design and manufacture restorations precisely reflect the same individual conditions as those in the patient’s mouth. Therefore, concrete values are established that can be utilized in subsequent treatment steps with a high degree of confidence in an analog or virtual environment.

Upon completion of this session, attendees should be able to: •

Recognize the benefits of incorporating analog steps in treatment, which will be of great help on the digital side.

Find the right individual position of the maxilla and transfer it accurately to the articulator using the PlaneSystem. LECTURE, UP TO 90 MINUTES MULTIDISCIPLINARY TOPICS AGD SUBJECT CODE: 149

Implant Diagnosis and Treatment Planning Solutions for Edentulous and Soon-to-Be Edentulous Patients DAVID LITTLE, DDS The edentulous population continues to grow nationally and globally. Advances in technologies and techniques have enabled dental professionals to provide predictable solutions to these patients, thereby improving their function, esthetics and comfort. This interactive session will discuss rationale and considerations for fixed versus removable options.

Upon completion of this session, attendees should be able to: •

Develop a restorative-driven digital workflow for treatment planning, surgery and prosthetics for the edentulous patient.

Discuss removable and fixed retrievable options taking into consideration patient expectations, immediate provisionalization, restorative material options, and hygiene maintenance. LECTURE, UP TO 90 MINUTES IMPLANT DENTISTRY AGD SUBJECT CODE: 690

Orthodontic Diagnosis and Interdisciplinary Treatment Planning from Age 4 to 74 DREW McDONALD, DDS, MS A dentist in an interdisciplinary team is trained at the highest level to be a diagnostician of the oral and masticatory system. Recent advancements in technology and research have allowed clinicians to better understand the role underlying health conditions—such as airway, TMJ, tongue and muscle dysfunctions, and alveolar bone phenotypes— play in development and relapse of malocclusion at any age. Furthermore, the dental profession continues to advance its understanding of how diagnosis and treatment decisions can go beyond teeth to benefit a patient’s overall health. Through overview of research and case presentations, this workshop will provide an outline of how to use advanced technologies to recognize the signs of foundational issues at all ages and create an interdisciplinary plan for care that provides benefits to more than just teeth.

10

Upon completion of this session, attendees should be able to: •

Recognize the signs of airway, TMJ, tongue dysfunction, and alveolar bone foundational issues at any age.

Understand how to use advanced technologies of CBCT, MRI and virtual articulation to diagnose, create comprehensive treatment plans, and communicate with their interdisciplinary team to achieve optimal results. LECTURE, UP TO 90 MINUTES ORTHODONTICS AGD SUBJECT CODE: 370


It’s Time to Re-Think TMD: Treatment Planning the Restorative TMDPatient JIM McKEE, DDS Many dentists avoid treating TMD patients because they are not confident about diagnosing or treating pain problems in the TM joints. While it’s assumed TMD patients present with pain, the more common clinical presentation of a TMD patient is some type of malocclusion. Class II occlusions, canted occlusal planes, anterior open bites, cross bites, overbites, overjets, facial asymmetries, compressed airway anatomy, and worn teeth are all examples of conditions that are the result of anatomic changes in the TM joints. Recognizing the role TM joints play in malocclusions can increase the predictability of occlusal, orthodontic, restorative, orthognathic, and airway treatment. Identifying the common clinical presentations of joint-based malocclusions can help in developing a treatment planning protocol that enables the patient to understand the advantages and disadvantages of different treatment options.

diagnostic tools are necessary to confidently assess the risk factors at the joint level. He will also present a treatment planning protocol that can be used for any patient to help clarify some of the confusion related to the patient who requires restorative treatment and also has structural changes in the TM joints. Upon completion of this session, attendees should be able to: •

Recognize how structural changes in the TM joints impact malocclusions and airway anatomy.

Understand how TM joint imaging with MRI and CBCT provides information to develop a treatment planning protocol that will result in increased clinical predictability and case acceptance for the restorative TMD patient.

This presentation will concentrate on patients seen every day in the practice. Dr McKee will share how to recognize joint-based malocclusions during the clinical exam and what

Mastering the Lumps and Bumps SAMSON NG, BSC(PHARM), MSC, DMD During this interactive session, Dr Ng will review oral lesions and dental therapeutics that oral care providers commonly encounter in a community practice. This lecture will reinforce the chairside techniques for head-and-neck and intraoral examinations, as well as techniques for written and photo documentation of oral lesions. The visual presentation and demonstrations of adjunctive evaluation tools will definitely make these topics pertinent to clinical care. Subject areas will include common benign oral lesions, the uncommon but need-to-know lesions, and microbial infections.

Upon completion of this session, attendees should be able to: •

Consolidate the clinical technique of performing an extraoral and intraoral soft tissue examination.

Diagnose and treat non-odontogenic oral lesions commonly identified in a community setting.

Recognize oral lesions/entities that should be a red flag and discuss proper initial management. LECTURE, UP TO 90 MINUTES ORAL AND MAXILLOFACIAL SURGERY AGD SUBJECT CODE: 310

Do Children Grow Out of It? TRACEY NGUYEN, DDS, FAGD, AAACD This presentation will provide a basic introduction to sleeprelated breathing disorders. In the last decade there have been many advancements in dental intervention strategies for airway management. An evaluation of the airway is of greatest concern when treatment planning worn dentition cases and complex care. This presentation will focus on the soft and hard tissue structures that manage the pharyngeal airway space. Early detection and treatment of childhood breathing problems may reduce craniofacial risk for developing obstructive-sleep-disordered breathing as an adult. Treatment options should improve the airway space, reduce nasal resistance, and create larger oral volume space for the tongue. In the skeletally mature patient, treatment options vary with nonsurgical and surgical options. This presentation will simplify the complexities of airway dysfunction.

Upon completion of this session, attendees should be able to: •

Recall the medical and dental signs and symptoms of obstructive-sleep-disordered breathing.

Recognize the different screening methods and incorporate screening into their practices if they choose to do so.

Explore diagnostic tools and treatment options based on age. LECTURE, UP TO 90 MINUTES ORAL MEDICINE, ORAL DIAGNOSIS, ORAL PATHOLOGY AGD SUBJECT CODE: 730

Thinking Endodontics: The Intersection of Science, Logic and Theory WILLIAM NUDERA, DDS, MS Diagnosis transcends all disciplines, and when applied correctly leads to the most likely conclusion for any given set of pre-existing circumstances. When those circumstances suggest pulpal or periapical disease, the choice to retain or replace a tooth will lie within its perceived prognosis. An algorithmic protocol exists that distills endodontic decision making down to its finite elements. By applying the best methods of reason drawn from scientific literature, systematic pathways will guide the clinician through a step-by-step thought process designed to simplify diagnosis and case selection.

this framework can significantly improve the clinician’s ability to make sound clinical judgments and more confident recommendations when faced with the choice to treat or extract pulpally compromised teeth. Upon completion of this session, attendees should be able to: •

Become more familiar with the concept of endodontic, scenario-driven decision making.

Understand how specific systems and protocols can be used to cultivate accurate diagnoses and prognoses for endodontically involved teeth.

It is the patient’s responsibility to make a definite treatment decision; it is the doctor’s duty to provide the necessary and candid information required to make that decision. A rational framework has been developed, with attention focused on the fundamentals that influence the decision-making attitudes of the treating clinician. The adoption and application of

DAy T

w The Case of the Dueling Tigers KEYNOTE: Generalist Approach VIKRAM MANSHARAMANI, PHD In a fast-paced world driven by complex and changing factors, connecting the dots is often more important than developing them. “The future doesn’t have to surprise you,” says Dr Vikram Mansharamani. In this wide-ranging talk, Dr Mansharamani demonstrates how to look differently at the industry and business with the explicit goal of identifying opportunities and spotting risks. He helps audiences distinguish the important signals from all of the geopolitical, economic, technological, social and demographic noise. Rather than turn to specialists, Dr Mansharamani guides people to think bigger and look across the silos of expertise, leaving listeners empowered and energized.

Upon completion of this session, attendees should be able to: •

Keep experts on tap, not on top—identify situations where experts may be too siloed in their thinking, and where acting as a generalist may be in one’s best interest.

Understand that breadth trumps depth—be able to draw on past experiences, seemingly unrelated knowledge, to come up with unique solutions to challenges or take full advantage of opportunities.

LECTURE, UP TO 60 MINUTES PRACTICE MANAGEMENT AND HUMAN RELATIONS AGD SUBJECT CODE: 550

Restorative Material Selection Workflow for a Rational Decision on Teeth and Implants MARCELO CALAMITA, DDS, MS, PHD, AND VICTOR CLAVIJO, DDS, MSC, PHD With constant development of new products, restorative material selection has become a complex task. Unfortunately, this choice is often made without solid criteria supported by scientific literature, empirical evidence, or the dentist’s or technician’s experience with a given material. This session will discuss the essential aspects to be considered during this decision-making process, such as the structural condition of the tooth support, the location of the element in the dental arch (anterior versus posterior teeth), the chromatic aspect of the substrate and adjacent teeth, and modifying factors related to the patient, the dentist and the dental technician. Discussion will also include the biological and mechanical properties for a material to be recommended over implants.

Upon completion of this session, attendees should be able to: •

Identify the physical properties, indications, advantages and disadvantages of the main esthetic restorative materials.

Understand the essential aspects to be considered when selecting materials.

Reduce risks based on the binomial esthetic expectation and functional demand for each tooth element. LECTURE, UP TO 45 MINUTES IMPLANTS AGD SUBJECT CODE: 690

S#%t Happens in Dentistry: The Reality of Treatment Planning vs. Execution TAL MORR, DMD, MSD Dentists are taught that diagnosis and treatment planning are the key factors to success in restoring their patients. This is true, although a dentist cannot control all the factors of execution, especially when working in a team. Unfortunately, even with the most concerted efforts, things go wrong. The clinician’s ability to adapt and navigate these potential issues allows for success. Explaining potential issues prior to starting treatment is critical for a smooth transition from the original plan to a new one, when necessary. This lecture will focus on potential issues and considerations for management.

Upon completion of this session, attendees should be able to: •

Identify the critical principles of treatment planning.

Present a treatment plan to a patient that allows for smooth transition to a new plan in case of unforeseen issues.

Use the basic esthetic principles to salvage poorly executed cases.

Comprehensive Complex Patient Situations: The Geneva Recipe for Predictable Outcomes IRENA SAILER, DMD The comprehensive treatment of patients with multiple restorative problems can be a real challenge in daily clinical practice—even more if patient expectations are high and esthetics are extremely important. Long-term neglected oral health and function can result in advanced destruction of tooth substance and/or loss of teeth. Furthermore, the frequently associated collapse of the vertical dimension can lead to impairment of facial esthetics and a lack of space for future restorations. Numerous restorative problems have to be solved at the same time in such patient situations, and multidisciplinary treatment is often needed. To coordinate the treatment sequences and for predictable, stable, long-term outcomes, a structured approach to treatment planning and execution is of utmost importance. This case presentation will illustrate the Geneva approach in treatment planning, pre-treatment diagnostics and communication, definition of treatment goals, and coordination of collaborating experts up to the finalization and insertion of the tooth- and implant-supported restorations. The decision-making process for selecting restoration types and restorative materials will be highlighted. Furthermore,

case examples will be referenced in a discussion about the indications and applications of digital technologies, as well as potential advantages like improved efficiency and predictability. Upon completion of this session, attendees should be able to: •
