SEATTLE STUDY CLUB® SYMPOSIUM | JANUARY 15–20, 2018


8 1 0 2 m u i s o p Sym "And those who were seen dancing were thought to be insane by those who could not hear the music." Anon.

Just over 25 years ago, the Seattle Study Club® network was born from the simple idea that interdisciplinary treatment planning is the foundation of ideal care. While this idea is not unique to our organization, what is unique is that our members hold fast to this tenet notwithstanding the forces in dentistry that militate against it. Interdisciplinary treatment planning isn’t for those seeking the easy answer, just the best one. It seems to me that clinicians who are drawn to what the Seattle Study Club organization stands for are dancing to a music that others in our industry simply cannot hear. Over the past 25 years, these directors and members have built a legacy for the Seattle Study Club of honoring the principles handed down to us by the greats of the past generation of superstar dental educators—Drs. Saul Schluger, Mort Amsterdam, Herb Schilder, and Henry M. Goldman among them—while also wholeheartedly embracing the exciting developments that new technology has brought to our profession. That’s our kind of crazy. For our 25th Anniversary Symposium, we have brought together the current generation of superstar dental educators, many of whom have already made an indelible mark upon our profession. We have asked them to distill their knowledge and experience into a handful of pearls of wisdom that may be passed on to us. This is the Legacy Tour. I can already hear the music . . . let the dancing begin. Michael Cohen, DDS, MSD, FACD Founder, Seattle Study Club

Anil Seth, MA, MSc, PhD Brighton, United Kingdom 10


h t e S l Ani What in the World Is Consciousness? Consciousness is, for each of us, the presence of a world. Without consciousness there is no world, no self: There is nothing at all. But we know surprisingly little about the material and biologic basis of this most central feature of our lives. Once the province of philosophy and theology, understanding consciousness has emerged as one of the great scientific and medical challenges for this century. In this talk, I will sketch the state-of-the-art in the new science of consciousness, with a focus on what neuroscience has to offer. I will distinguish between conscious level (how conscious we are, and what happens when it goes away in conditions like anesthesia), conscious content (what we are conscious of when we are conscious), and conscious self (the specific experience of being me or of being you). I’ll describe how new experiments are shedding light on the underlying neural mechanisms, both in normal life and in neurologic and psychiatric conditions. Putting it all together, my research suggests that consciousness has less to do with pure intelligence and more to do with our nature as living and breathing organisms. UPON COMPLETION OF THIS SESSION, ATTENDEES SHOULD BE ABLE TO: „„ Understand the differences between conscious level, conscious content, and conscious self. „„ Learn how and why our conscious experience of world and self are “useful hallucinations” that do not necessarily reflect an external reality. Anil Seth is professor of cognitive and computational neuroscience and codirector of the Sackler Centre for Consciousness Science at the University of Sussex. He is also editor-in-chief of Neuroscience of Consciousness (Oxford University Press) and a senior fellow of the Canadian Institute for Advanced Research. A dedicated science communicator as well as a scientist, he is a Wellcome Trust Engagement Fellow and editor and coauthor of 30 Second Brain (Ivy Press, 2014). Dr. Seth has spoken at TED and the Royal Institution, has written for Granta, New Scientist, and The Guardian.

Daniel Gilbert, PhD Cambridge, Massachusetts 12


t r e b l i G l e i n Da How to Do Precisely the Right Thing at All Possible Times Floss daily, save for retirement, and don’t wear plaid pants before or after Labor Day. Most experts tell us what to decide but they don’t tell us how, and so the moment we face a novel decision— Should I move to Cleveland or Anchorage? Marry Jennifer or Joanne? Become an architect or a pastry chef?—we’re lost. Is there any way to know how to do precisely the right thing at all possible times? In fact, there is a simple method for making decisions that most people find easy to understand and impossible to follow. New research in psychology, neuroscience, and behavioral economics explains why. UPON COMPLETION OF THIS SESSION, ATTENDEES SHOULD BE ABLE TO: „„ Understand why human beings are forever wrongly predicting what will make them happy. „„ Learn that the happiness they can expect from anything they do is a function of two things—the odds of getting a gain and the value of that gain. Daniel Gilbert is the Edgar Pierce Professor of Psychology at Harvard University. He has won numerous awards for his research and teaching, including the American Psychological Association’s Distinguished Scientific Award for an Early Career Contribution to Psychology. His 2007 book, Stumbling on Happiness, spent 6 months on the New York Times Best Sellers list, sold more than a million copies worldwide, and was awarded the Royal Society’s General Book Prize for best science book of the year. In 2010, he hosted and cowrote the award-winning NOVA television series This Emotional Life, which was seen by more than 10 million viewers in its first airing. He is a contributor to Time, the New York Times, and NPR’s All Things Considered. His TED talks have been viewed more than 20 million times.

Mark Gungor Green Bay, Wisconsin 14


r o g n u G k r a M Back by Popular Demand The Tale of Two Brains

In this keynote session, I explore the differences between men and women, or what I like to call “the laws of relational physics.” Men and women are wired differently: They act differently, they communicate differently, and most important, they think differently. I show couples that their problems may result from how men and women think about life in a different way. Many of the struggles couples face in marriage are the result of a head problem, not a heart problem. UPON COMPLETION OF THIS SESSION, ATTENDEES SHOULD BE ABLE TO: „„ Appreciate the importance of intimacy in their marriage. „„ Learn about that secret place husbands love to go to: “The Nothing Box.” „„ Understand the simple steps to change the flow of give and take in their relationship. Mark Gungor is one of the most highly sought international speakers on marriage and family. He is a pastor, speaker, author, musician, and producer, and each year thousands of couples attend his Laugh Your Way to a Better Marriage® seminars. Mark’s candid and comedic approach uses unforgettable illustrations and the power of laughter to teach proven principles that are guaranteed to strengthen any marriage. He is senior pastor of Celebration Church—a multisite church with five campuses across Wisconsin— and the CEO of Laugh Your Way America. He balances his pastoral duties with a rigorous travel schedule conducting marriage seminars and speaking at churches, as well as civic and corporate events. Mark has been featured on national broadcasts such as Focus on the Family, Life Today, and ABC News. He is married to Debbie, his high school sweetheart and constant travel companion. They recently celebrated their 42nd wedding anniversary and have two married children, four grandsons, and two granddaughters.

The Illusion of Choice This presentation/performance will shed some light on why choice may be an illusion. Webster’s defines choice as “an act of selecting or making a decision when faced with two or more possibilities.” But is it that simple? Are our choices our own? Do they have consequences? With the help of our amazing 25th anniversary Symposium audience, we will see how our choices are influenced. Although we all have the perception of free will, we might find that our choices may be highly influenced and that our free will may not be as free as we believe. I will highlight and explain the concept (or the illusion) of choice in a way never previously appreciated. UPON COMPLETION OF THIS SESSION, ATTENDEES SHOULD BE ABLE TO: „„ Understand what influences choice. „„ Recognize how decision-making is influenced. Christopher Ramsey was raised and currently practices in Jupiter, Florida. His practice focuses on comprehensive esthetic and restorative dentistry. He received his DMD in 1999 from Temple University School of Dentistry in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. He is a member of the American Academy of Esthetic Dentistry and the American Society for Dental Aesthetics as well as an accredited member of the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry. Dr. Ramsey is a graduate of the Kois Center in Seattle, Washington, and an alumnus of the Pankey Institute in Key Biscayne, Florida.

My Life As a One-Man Band I have created a life for myself as a one-man band and in the process have become one of the most respected musicians in all of Australia. I have a unique virtuoso playing style and an ability to blend rhythm and melody. Through my music, I inspire audiences to do what they love and I emphasize the need to stick to it and achieve their goals. UPON COMPLETION OF THIS SESSION, ATTENDEES SHOULD BE ABLE TO: „„ Learn why Tommy considers himself to be in the happiness business. „„ Become inspired to make music a part of their lives. Tommy Emmanuel was given his first guitar at age 4, and just 2 years later he started working professionally in a family band, the Emmanuel Quartet. He never learned to read and write music, but he and his brother Phil were dedicated students of the guitar, creating games that helped them identify chords and patterns. Emmanuel pursued his passion and, after graduation, became one of Australia’s most in-demand rock musicians, playing guitar in a succession of bands including one of Australia’s best-known acts, Dragon. He supplemented that with a side job as a studio musician, playing on albums by the likes of Air Supply and Men At Work and on commercial jingles. Eventually Emmanuel ventured out on his own and, like a jazz musician, began improvising his way through many of his songs to capture and shape the mood of the room. The recognitions rolled in, including two GRAMMY nominations, two ARIA Awards, and repeated honors in the Guitar Player magazine reader’s poll. Emmanuel also earned the opportunity to work with Eric Clapton, Doc Watson, John Denver, and the incomparable Chet Atkins, who essentially handpicked Emmanuel to be his creative heir.

Boney James Los Angeles, California 22


s e m a J y e n Bo Boney James in Concert It’s been a full quarter-century since a young saxophonist and composer released his debut recording as a leader—Trust. On September 1, 2017, Boney James will release his 16th album, Honestly. If you sense a direct line between those titles, you’ve already come a long way toward understanding what motivates the four-time GRAMMY nominee and multiplatinum-selling musician. “I’m fighting the good fight to be my own artist and not be pigeonholed,” says the genre-blurring James. “With a record’s title I always try to find something that will communicate the feeling I get when I listen to it. The feeling I get with this music is a sense of sincerity and intimacy. The word ‘honestly’ really reflects how I aspire to live my life and create my music. One of the great things about music is how powerful it is. It can totally transport people. These are interesting times we are living in and the one thing I can do with the skills that I have is to make music that evokes a feeling and takes people somewhere . . . to do what I can to try and make the world a more pleasant place.” Honestly follows futuresoul, James’ 2015 release, which spent 11 weeks at no. 1 on the Billboard Contemporary Jazz Chart. The New York Times raved, “Boney James performs with panache. His arc as a soloist is emotional . . . he can paint a scene.” Over the years, James has racked up sales of more than three million records, four RIAA gold albums, four GRAMMY nominations, a Soul Train Award, nominations for two NAACP Image Awards, and 10 CDs atop Billboard’s Contemporary Jazz Albums chart. In 2009, Billboard named him (along with Kenny G and Norah Jones) one of the Top 3 Contemporary Jazz Artists of the Decade.

Brian Bradley, BKin San Diego, California 24


y e l d a r B n a Bri Unleash the Power Within As a dental care provider, you are in more pain than any other healthcare professional. Typically, as a dentist or hygienist, you are seated with your thoracic back flexed and your torso rotated toward the patient. You spend hours sitting like this, so your muscles learn to work to stabilize you in this position. As a result, when standing, you remain in the same position—flexed and rotated. Your posture is off and your body alerts you with aching discomfort. For over 25 years, my mission has been posture and pain, helping restore balance to the body, helping you be the person you were meant to be—pain free! During this keynote, I will share tips from Egoscue Posture Therapy to help bring posture back into balance and return the body to proper function. UPON COMPLETION OF THIS SESSION, ATTENDEES SHOULD BE ABLE TO: „„ Restore optimal muscle balance, length, and tension. „„ Reduce and/or eliminate musculoskeletal and joint pain. Brian Bradley is the vice president of therapy protocol at the worldrenowned Egoscue Method, headquartered in San Diego, California. He is an athletic trainer/exercise physiologist and the author of multiple bestselling DVDs on posture and pain.

e n o o B . L y e r f f e J Protecting You: Lessons from a Life in Prevention

In this unique and eye-opening session, I will share my perspective on health and healthcare based on a 30-year career in the prevention of heart disease. Through my own journey in medicine, I will describe the tremendous advances in preventive care that have taken place over the past half-century. With each advance, new challenges arise. Over the decades, my expertise has grown to encompass not just heart disease but also the prevention of cancer and age-related dementia. UPON COMPLETION OF THIS SESSION, ATTENDEES SHOULD BE ABLE TO: „„ Identify the flaws in the current approach to diseases of aging (heart disease, cancer, dementia). „„ Learn methods of preventing these diseases and/or mitigating their deadly effects. „„ Become empowered to take control of their own health and proactively optimize their own aging process. Jeffrey L. Boone is a consultant in cardiometabolic health, preventive cardiology, and stress medicine in private practice in Denver, Colorado. In 2007, he was selected as one of the 160 Top Doctors in America by Men’s Health Magazine and listed as one of the 17 Top Cardiovascular Doctors in America for Men.

Judith Campisi, PhD Novato, California 28


i s i p m a C h t i Jud Suppressing Aging and Extending Longevity—Will the Twain Meet? In recent decades, average human life spans have continued to rise, mostly owing to medical advances that can postpone, treat, or prevent certain diseases of aging. Despite these advances, many older people face years of disability, which impose enormous human and economic burdens. Recent research has identified a few basic mechanisms that appear to drive aging. I will discuss one such mechanism and the prospects for pharmacologic interventions that have the potential to extend the years of healthy life. I will also discuss the much-debated prospect of extending human longevity—that is, absolute years of life—in light of recent research. UPON COMPLETION OF THIS SESSION, ATTENDEES SHOULD BE ABLE TO: „„ Discuss how aging and age-related diseases are intimately intertwined and likely driven by a few basic processes that make many organs and tissues susceptible to disease. „„ Understand how cellular senescence is a potential global driver of age-related disease and also a novel target for intervention. Judith Campisi received her doctorate in biochemistry from the State University of New York at Stony Brook and completed her postdoctoral training at Harvard Medical School. As an assistant professor at Boston University Medical School, she became interested in the control of cellular senescence and its role in tumor suppression and aging. Dr. Campisi joined the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory as a senior scientist in 1991. She established a second laboratory at the Buck Institute in 2002. At both institutions, she established a broad program to understand various aspects of aging, with an emphasis on the interface between cancer and aging. The Campisi Laboratory has made several pioneering discoveries in these areas, and her research continues to challenge and alter existing paradigms.

Geoff Kerchner, MD, PhD Stanford, California 30


r e n h c r e K f f Geo Alzheimer’s Disease: The Search for a Cure We are in the midst of a revolution in the care of patients with Alzheimer’s disease. New tests are already available in the clinic, allowing earlier and more definitive diagnosis. Many promising therapeutic approaches are now being tested in late-phase clinical trials; despite headlines of several recent failures, we have learned from each one, and there is great hope that new, meaningful therapies are on the horizon. The dream is of a future in which Alzheimer’s disease, like other chronic diseases of aging such as diabetes and atherosclerosis, will be amenable to presymptomatic screening and preventive treatment. UPON COMPLETION OF THIS SESSION, ATTENDEES SHOULD BE ABLE TO: „„ Describe the clinical findings and diagnostic approach to Alzheimer’s disease. „„ List currently available therapies and the approaches under investigation in clinical trials. Geoff Kerchner is a behavioral neurologist and medical director at Genentech. He graduated summa cum laude from Harvard College, then obtained his MD and PhD degrees at Washington University School of Medicine. He completed residency training in neurology at University of California, San Francisco, where he went on to complete a postdoctoral fellowship in neuroscience and a clinical fellowship in behavioral neurology. Dr. Kerchner became assistant professor of neurology and neurological sciences at Stanford University, where he ran an NIH-funded neuroimaging laboratory, an Alzheimer’s disease clinical trials unit, and a memory disorders clinical practice. In 2015, he moved to his current position at Genentech, where he leads the phase I and phase II clinical development of new therapies for neurodegenerative diseases, including Alzheimer’s disease and amyotrophic lateral sclerosis.

Immediately following their keynotes, Drs. Judith Campisi, Geoff Kerchner, and Aubrey de Grey will participate in a panel discussion with audience Q&A. 32


y e r G e d y e r b Au Rejuvenation Biotechnology: Why Age May Soon Cease to Mean Aging People are living longer than they used to. That’s no longer an effect of reduced child mortality but rather because we are postponing the ill health of old age. Soon, however, reaching the age of 100 is likely to become the rule rather than the exception. Regenerative medicine and other new biomedical technologies will eventually be so comprehensive that people will stay truly youthful however long they live—which means they may mostly live very long indeed. The social and economic consequences of this transition will pervade every aspect of our lives. I will discuss both the biology and the sociology of what will be the most momentous advance in the history of civilization. UPON COMPLETION OF THIS SESSION, ATTENDEES SHOULD BE ABLE TO: „„ Identify specific technological approaches to the reversal (not merely the prevention) of various aspects of aging. „„ Discuss whether it will be possible to live to the age of 130. „„ Learn about the damage associated with aging and how repairing that damage results in rejuvenation. Aubrey de Grey is an English author and biomedical gerontologist, a fellow of the Institute for Ethics and Emerging Technologies, and the chief science officer of the SENS Foundation. The editor of Rejuvenation Research, the world’s only peer-reviewed journal focused on intervention in aging, he is an advocate of research seeking answers to how molecular and cellular metabolic damage brings about aging and ways humans can intervene to repair and/or obviate that damage. The central goal of Dr. de Grey’s work is the expedition of developing a true cure for human aging.

s i o K . C n h Jo Does Your Dataset Match Your Mindset? Which Procedures, Products, or Protocols Do You Change to Improve Your Outcomes?

The ability to provide care that yields a predictable outcome requires an individualized risk assessment of your patient. Unfortunately, the vast majority of data used to make decisions about patient care are based on survival analysis, which is proceduregenerated and may not accurately reflect the individual needs of your patient. In this program, I will provide a conceptual framework for clinical practice that is simple to implement and will cause a paradigm shift in the way you interface with your patients and collect data. In addition, I will introduce new dental software that will link the benefits of evidence-based science to clinical protocols, thereby providing all necessary analysis, improving quality assurance, and resulting in a more seamless integration of other developing technologies. UPON COMPLETION OF THIS SESSION, ATTENDEES SHOULD BE ABLE TO: „„ Outline a new process in the way they interact and collect data from their patients. „„ Improve quality assurance. John C. Kois earned his DMD from the University of Pennsylvania School of Dental Medicine and a certificate in periodontal prosthodontics and an MSD from the University of Washington School of Dentistry. He maintains a private practice limited to prosthodontics in Tacoma and Seattle and is an affiliate professor at the University of Washington. Dr. Kois lectures nationally and internationally, serves as a reviewer for many journals, and is the coeditor-in-chief of Compendium. He is the recipient of numerous prestigious awards, including the 2002 Saul Schluger Memorial Award, a Lifetime Achievement Award from both the World Congress of Minimally Invasive Dentistry and the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry, and the 2014 Dr. Thaddeus V. Weclew Award.

The Three Keys to Clinical Success What it means to be successful in clinical practice can vary from one individual to another. To some it might be making money, while to others it may be achieving dental health or creating beautiful esthetic smiles. Regardless of how it is personally defined, success is typically impacted and created by three specific parameters: treatment planning, communication, and commitment. In this presentation, I will address the role that each of these parameters has in achieving success and realizing fulfillment. UPON COMPLETION OF THIS SESSION, ATTENDEES SHOULD BE ABLE TO: „„ Utilize a systematic treatment planning process that can be applied to dental conditions of any complexity. „„ Communicate treatment options to their patients so they are engaged in the process and understand the risks and benefits of treatment without being frightened or intimidated. Greggory A. Kinzer received his DDS from the University of Washington in 1995 and an MSD and certificate in prosthodontics in 1998. He is an internationally recognized speaker who serves as a full-time faculty member for Spear Education in Scottsdale, Arizona, and as an affiliate assistant professor in the Graduate Prosthodontics Department at the University of Washington School of Dentistry. In addition, Dr. Kinzer has written numerous articles and chapters and has served on the editorial review boards of various dental publications. Dr. Kinzer is a gifted academician and clinician who is committed to advancing the art and science of restorative dentistry. His interdisciplinary approach to dentistry is founded in empirical-based research and clinical experience. Dr. Kinzer’s unique ability to impart complex clinical processes in a logical, systematic, and clear methodology differentiates him from other dental educators of our time. He maintains a private practice in Seattle limited to comprehensive restorative and esthetic dentistry.

r r a t S . L l i Ne Making Music for Your Patients with What They Have Left The confluence of esthetics, osseointegration, and digital dentistry has resulted in the creation of beautiful teeth and implant restorations. Yet, in our efforts to achieve esthetic excellence, are we at times losing sight of our patients’ ability to establish and maintain dental health? Are there technical methodologies that we can employ to preserve the natural teeth longer, or are we sacrificing teeth for implants too soon? Can certain distributions of implants help to slow the progression of peri-implantitis, and what design features can minimize its impact on the overall dentition? I will share lessons learned from my decades-long experience running a successful clinical practice focused on interdisciplinary dental therapeutics.

Clinical Solutions for Complex Esthetic Rehabilitations Using Adhesive Technology Performing successful and satisfying bonded restorations still depends on numerous factors, especially regarding material selection and bonding integrity. Impairment of the adhesive interface can produce microleakage, postoperative sensitivity, discoloration, and debonding of an esthetic restoration. Novel adhesive techniques and bonded restorations provide treatment alternatives that until recently would require invasive approaches and sacrifice of pristine dental structure. The adhesive revolution has overturned established concepts by advancing our profession with groundbreaking ultraconservative philosophies that are supported by the sealing and reinforcement of dental tissues. However, as newer adhesive materials and technologies are introduced at a fast pace, clinicians and dental technicians must become familiar with their indications and limitations to provide the best restorative strategy for each patient. I will present a systematic and scientific approach for selecting esthetic treatment modalities using adhesive techniques and CAD/CAM materials based on original research data, with an emphasis on new materials’ design and selection.

s i c a r G o n a f e t S Looking Back on 27 Years of Multidisciplinary Treatments

Indications for Improving the Treatment Planning Roadmap In multidisciplinary treatment planning, issues such as the predictability of different clinical procedures, cost versus time benefit ratio of the various therapeutic options, and the correct sequence of therapies often arise. In the decision-making process, a number of challenging questions that have far-reaching implications must be answered: Are implants the best way to replace missing teeth in the esthetic zone? When does it make sense to seek collaboration with the orthodontist? What is the best way to restore periodontally susceptible patients with missing teeth? Through a retrospective analysis of a number of multidisciplinary clinical cases, I will present the major lessons that I have learned over the past 27 years and how they have changed the way I practice today. UPON COMPLETION OF THIS SESSION, ATTENDEES SHOULD BE ABLE TO: „„ Understand how new prosthetic options and materials have changed the approach to replacing missing teeth and restoring worn or broken down teeth. „„ Evaluate objectively when to consider maintaining teeth in situations where implants are needed.

i c c i R a e r d An How Far Can We Go with Natural Teeth? Managing Esthetics in Compromised Cases

One of the hardest decisions we have to make when treating periodontally compromised patients is whether to save the natural residual dentition or to extract and place implants. Many factors are involved in this decision. In this presentation, I will focus on how to adequately diagnose the different sites and forecast the clinical outcome; review different solutions for addressing these problems; and discuss the options available for achieving them. In most cases, a thorough knowledge of the restorative materials and protocols is required, involving the efforts of the entire dental team. However, modern techniques and materials can be useless if the final outcome does not achieve the patient’s esthetic expectations. The treatment approach required to select the right treatment for the right patient will also be discussed. UPON COMPLETION OF THIS SESSION, ATTENDEES SHOULD BE ABLE TO: „„ Predict the possibility of saving a compromised tooth for a long-term result. „„ Manage the surgical and prosthetic protocols and materials required to restore function and esthetics in multidisciplinary patients.

Paradigm Shift in Implant Dentistry: Importance of Soft Tissue Concept Implant dentistry has evolved in the last quarter century from a discipline that focused on filling spaces to one that is now driven by the pursuit of natural dentogingival perfection. Although functional goals have been challenging at times, pleasing esthetic outcomes have been even more elusive. It is difficult to create and maintain a harmonious esthetic outcome around dental implants that mimics the surrounding dentition and soft tissue condition and morphology. The subepithelial connective tissue graft is a favored option to treat and prevent gingival and peri-implant soft tissue recession. It is usually placed in combination with a coronally advanced flap, an envelope flap, or a pouch technique. In this lecture, I will focus on the different protocols and their surgical and prosthetic criteria to treat anterior implants using only soft tissue grafting procedures as a volume maintainer. UPON COMPLETION OF THIS SESSION, ATTENDEES SHOULD BE ABLE TO: „„ Understand the importance of connective tissue grafting around implants for long-term results. „„ Learn concepts for improving soft tissue volume around implants.

Our creativity, inspiration, and emotional temperament are at least as important as the technical aspects of our profession. Creating new smile designs is an art form that flows from everything else in our lives—our experiences, relationships, pleasures. At the end of the day, what is important is to create restorations that depend not only on esthetics but also on beauty, that reflect the psychological features of the created image, and that affect the emotions, sense of identity, behavior, and self-esteem of our patients. It’s all about sharing. I will try to share where and how I started my profession, the paths that were full of joy and difficulties, how I walked my way through all my failures and successes, where I am at the present time, and what my future expectations are from our profession and life. UPON COMPLETION OF THIS SESSION, ATTENDEES SHOULD BE ABLE TO: „„ Understand the art form of creating new smiles. „„ Balance creativity and technical tolerances to insure both restorative longevity and high patient satisfaction.

Achieving esthetic objectives in multidisciplinary cases can be a significant clinical challenge. During recent years, treatment modalities and options have changed. From a surgical point of view, less invasive procedures are used in order to preserve soft tissue anatomy and minimize recession. In addition, the design of implants and prosthetic components has changed so as to minimize bone resorption and soft tissue alterations. In this presentation, I will focus on a new surgical and prosthetic approach to difficult esthetic implant rehabilitations.

A l e icha Management of Large and Complete Sinus Perforations: Where Science Meets Art The most common intraoperative complication in sinus elevation surgery is perforation of the sinus membrane. According to the literature, the incidence varies from 11% to 56%. Small- and mediumsized membrane perforations can be managed successfully with a variety of techniques, but there is no consensus on how to repair a large and especially a complete membrane perforation. Indeed, most authors advise terminating a sinus graft procedure when a large or complete perforation is discovered. In this session, I will present a specific technique for repair of both large and completely perforated sinus membranes that I have used for more than 20 years. As a result of using this protocol, I have not aborted a single sinus elevation procedure (more than 1,200 performed since 1989) in which membrane perforation occurred.

Open at Both Ends In order to stay current in today’s rapidly changing field of dentistry, we must be prepared to critically examine both new and old biologic concepts. As we accept new concepts, some of our previously held beliefs become obsolete. Thus, it is imperative to have an open mind—one that is open at both ends. We must carefully evaluate and let in new ideas at one end, and at the other end, let go of those concepts that are no longer valid.

t s e W John Mother Nature Was Right Since 1963, when the ADA established endodontics as a specialty, endodontists have been unable to agree about the significance of the relationship between the endodontic seal and endodontic failures. In other words, we cannot agree on the rationale for endodontics! The classic triad for endodontic success is (1) clean (disinfect), (2) shape (prepare the anatomy for successful obturation and facilitate 3D cleaning), and (3) pack (obturate the root canal and the root canal system). During this session, I will represent Mother Nature’s side of the endodontic story with a focus on the biologic truth of endodontic disease and how to heal it.

r e m i R n e h p Ste Orthognathic Surgery: When and Why to Consider this Treatment The harmony of the face and functional relationship of the jaws and teeth drive the treatment plan and the sequencing of therapy. Orthognathic surgery, when combined with restorative therapy, will optimize the functional and esthetic result. Surgical manipulation of the jawbones allows for movement in three planes of space— vertically or transversely and horizontally. When the restorative and functional deficiencies require these types of movements to achieve the optimal outcome, orthognathic surgery must be considered. Diagnostically, all cases should be looked at from a facial perspective and treatment planned from the outside in. Unfortunately, treatment is usually sequenced from the inside out. It is critical for all members of the team to understand what other treatment modalities can be used to achieve the expected outcome of the patient. UPON COMPLETION OF THIS SESSION, ATTENDEES SHOULD BE ABLE TO: „„ Evaluate the patient facially. „„ Understand that treatment planning includes the face and head as a whole and requires planning from outside to inside.

z r a w h c S . Gary M Treatment Results for Peri-Implantitis Using the Nd:YAG Laser Peri-implantitis is a growing worldwide problem for which there is no effective treatment, according to the literature. My own frustration and lack of success in trying to treat this disease led me to the PerioLase MVP-7™ Pulsed Nd:YAG dental laser, through a fortunate series of events involving my own Seattle Study Club® affiliate. In this presentation, I will share the results of a retrospective analysis of my first 222 patients with 437 failing implants treated from September 2013 to November 2016 using the LAPIP™ protocol (with slight modification). This minimally invasive treatment protocol effectively eliminated bleeding and pus on probing and achieved shrinking pocket depths in 90% of the patients treated in my practice. I will present empirical evidence of my results, which have not yet been published, to allow the audience members to decide for themselves whether to follow the same treatment pathway. UPON COMPLETION OF THIS SESSION, ATTENDEES SHOULD BE ABLE TO: „„ Understand what the current literature says about treatment results for peri-implantitis. „„ Learn what the possibilities and the limitations are for treating this condition using the LAPIP laser protocol. Gary M. Schwarz earned his DDS with high honors from Baylor Dental College in 1978 and completed his MSD and oral and maxillofacial surgery training at Baylor College of Dentistry in 1983. Since then he has practiced as a full-service oral and maxillofacial surgeon in south Texas.

w o n r a T . P s i n n e D Oh My Gosh, What Have I Done?

To summarize in words the accomplishments of one’s career is an interesting exercise. What may be preserved for posterity is difficult to predict since it will depend on future research from around the world. However, when I look back on my accomplishments and body of work, I come up with six topics or ideas: the interdental/ interimplant papilla, the semi-lunar flap for root coverage in the esthetic zone, the histologic response to sinus grafting materials, the ice cream cone technique for socket grafting without buccal plates of bone, the dual-zone socket management for immediate flapless placement of implants in the esthetic zone, and the immediate loading of implants in the mandible and maxilla. UPON COMPLETION OF THIS SESSION, ATTENDEES SHOULD BE ABLE TO: „„ Handle immediate socket management with and without the presence of the labial plate of bone. „„ Manage the “black triangle” problem between teeth and between implants. „„ Understand when and how to do immediate loading of implants.

e s u o R . S y e r f f e J Evolution and Revolution— A Personal Journey

Evolution involves taking an existing concept and modifying it; revolution is seeing the world in a new light. I have been fortunate during my career to take part in both. Along with Dr. Bill Robbins, I systematized the Facially Generated Treatment Planning concepts of John Kois and Frank Spear into a tool called The 5 CORE Questions, which is used to diagnose and provide interdisciplinary treatment to complex restorative patients. The revolution came when I linked the CORE answers to craniofacial developmental problems related to swallowing and breathing alterations that occur early in growth, which can lead to adult challenges to oral and systemic health. The concept of “prevent, control, resolve” and my Seattle Protocol came from a personal journey involving my son Jake. This concept serves as a gateway to the future of dentistry and the world of integrative medicine. UPON COMPLETION OF THIS SESSION, ATTENDEES SHOULD BE ABLE TO: „„ Recognize airway alterations before they lead to progression of the medical disease. „„ Create an autonomic nervous system trial to direct the development of a health-based interdisciplinary plan.

s n i b b o R m a i l l i J. W A Global Perspective of Esthetics and Function

Thirty years ago my favorite subject/lecture was the diagnosis and treatment of the gummy smile. I didn’t create the differential diagnosis, but I taught and grew to understand it. Ten years later, my partner Dr. Jeffrey Rouse realized that the differential diagnosis had application to a larger group of patients—hence the birth of the Global Diagnosis concept. The unique quality of this concept stems from its roots in the gummy smile. An interdisciplinary approach is essential in patients where the gingival tissue is in the incorrect position in the face. Whereas our focus for many years was on function, the relatively recent advances in technology shifted the focus to esthetics and the beautiful smile. In this presentation, I will explain how my Global Diagnosis concept ties function and esthetics together in the treatment of these patients. UPON COMPLETION OF THIS SESSION, ATTENDEES SHOULD BE ABLE TO: „„ Understand the four Global Diagnoses. „„ Describe the six tools to treat the four Global Diagnoses. J. William Robbins maintains a full-time private practice and is an adjunct clinical professor at the University of Texas Health Science Center at San Antonio (UTHSCSA).

i n a r t i M o d r Rica 2018: Is It Still the Mind Behind the Machine? Over the course of my dental journey, I have witnessed the impact of evolving technology on clinicians, patients, and the dental industry. Digital technology increases the speed and breadth of knowledge turnover within the economy and society. When applied to implant dentistry, digital technology enables the treating team to diagnose, treatment plan, and design therapy more efficiently. Used appropriately, digital workflows have proven to be a valuable addition to our clinical/technical armamentarium. In this presentation, I take a close look at the planning phase in patients with terminal dentition and present a workflow to make treatment more predictable and time efficient. In my opinion, understanding the analog world will remain absolutely essential to achieving long-lasting, predictable results. UPON COMPLETION OF THIS SESSION, ATTENDEES SHOULD BE ABLE TO: „„ Know what digital systems are currently available. „„ Review decision trees for treatment of the terminal dentition.

n a K h p e s o J Management of Vertical Tissue Defects in the Esthetic Zone: Science, Art, and Limitations Vertical regeneration to correct anterior gingival defects around implants is always a daunting challenge. While vertical bone regeneration can be achieved, it does not guarantee soft tissue esthetics, especially in the final few millimeters where the tissue meets the prosthesis. The outcome of the tissue in this area often means the difference between having an esthetic implant restoration versus a long crown without papillae or a crown with artificial gingiva. In this presentation, I will focus on the integration of surgical grafting and prosthetic manipulation of soft and hard tissues to attain those critical final millimeters of partially edentulous vertical defects in the esthetic zone. UPON COMPLETION OF THIS SESSION, ATTENDEES SHOULD BE ABLE TO: „„ Discuss the diagnosis and treatment plan for vertical defects in the esthetic zone. „„ Understand the limitations of regeneration in the esthetic zone. Joseph Kan completed his specialty training in prosthodontics as well as an MS degree in implant dentistry at Loma Linda University School of Dentistry (LLUSD) in 1997.

A “Dent”imental Journey: Memories Made, Lessons Learned, and a Legacy Left Behind Setting realistic goals, striving to achieve success, and learning from failure—most of us are naturally programmed to engage in all three of these behaviors. Indeed, failure is one of the most powerful catalysts to personal enlightenment and growth. In our work, we seek to balance factors such as esthetics, function, and biology. Frequently, orthodontics is necessary to establish a foundation that will support a predictable and successful final outcome. This is as true for the pediatric patient with a developing malocclusion and underlying airway concern as it is for the interdisciplinary adult patient with multiple missing teeth and significant periodontal and restorative needs. I have been fortunate to learn, both personally and professionally, from some legendary teachers. This presentation will be a retrospective on the traditions and innovations that have guided my journey toward progress—in short, my legacy. UPON COMPLETION OF THIS SESSION, ATTENDEES SHOULD BE ABLE TO: „„ Understand the impact of tradition and innovation on progress. „„ Appreciate the value of thinking outside the box.

A Legacy of Interprofessional Collaboration In 1981, I established a dental clinical pharmacy service that included a rotation through the dental clinics for fourth-year pharmacy students. These pharmacy students work directly with third- and fourth-year dental students in detecting drug-related problems and performing point-of-care testing for diabetic and anticoagulated patients. I am also responsible for teaching the entire basic and applied pharmacology curriculum with the goal of making pharmacology relevant and practical in daily practice. In 2018, dental patients will be older, sicker, and much more medicated than they have ever been, which makes treatment planning and maintenance strategies much more complex. Our care team now includes social work and nurse practitioner students working in our geriatrics and special needs clinic. During this session, I will describe some specific cases in which interprofessional collaboration has proven to be very successful in accomplishing the best possible patient outcomes. UPON COMPLETION OF THIS SESSION, ATTENDEES SHOULD BE ABLE TO: „„ Describe specific types of dentist-pharmacist collaborations. „„ Identify patients in their practice who might benefit from collaborative care. Karen A. Baker has been on the Dental College faculty at the University of Iowa for 36 years and performs a unique role in dental practice and education.

a i l a h c a K . R arag Symposium 2058— How Generation Glass Impacted Dentistry My years in dentistry have been filled with the pursuit of perfection. Reality has dictated that although this has resulted in higher-quality outcomes, there have clearly been limitations and challenges along the way. In this presentation, I will start with a trip into the future to see how dentistry has evolved 40 years from now and how those innovations relate to what is currently happening. By 2050, Generation Alpha will be 35 million strong in the United States alone, and the healthcare expectations of this group will be very different from ours today. This generation is growing up in front of screens: computers, smart phones, and tablets will have pacified, entertained, and taught them since earliest infancy (hence the nickname “Generation Glass”). They expect immediate gratification, and technology is deeply ingrained in their lives. Over the next 40 years, healthcare will evolve to cater to this generation as well as others who are greatly influenced by technology. How will dentistry evolve along the way? This presentation will explore innovations today as well as those that may come in the future. UPON COMPLETION OF THIS SESSION, ATTENDEES SHOULD BE ABLE TO: „„ Grasp the impact technologic advances will have on patient care. „„ Leverage new technologies for personalized healthcare. Parag R. Kachalia is a tenured associate professor, the vice chair of Simulation, Technology and Research, and a team leader of the complex and esthetic rehabilitation program at the University of the Pacific Arthur A.

y e l n a t S e l y K The Lip Factor— Unveiling Dental Beauty Conventionally, esthetic dentistry has used the upper lip as a major decision-making landmark for smile design. We have been told to simply accept the position of the upper lip, and we base many of our esthetic decisions on this often aged length. The problems arise when we try to restore our patients with young-looking teeth within the frame of aging lips. I will introduce a paradigm shift in esthetic treatment planning that incorporates minimally invasive plastic surgery procedures to give our patients a youthful lower face and better incisal display, applying a treatment plan with an orofacial approach. UPON COMPLETION OF THIS SESSION, ATTENDEES SHOULD BE ABLE TO: „„ Learn the SLIP technique to restore aging lips to an ideal position. „„ Treatment plan with an orofacial approach. Kyle Stanley graduated magna cum laude from the Herman Ostrow School of Dentistry at the University of Southern California (USC) and then went on to complete a dental implant residency and specialization in Florianopolis, Brazil. While at USC, Dr. Stanley completed an esthetic mini-residency with Dr. Pascal Magne and received the Charles L.

w o k c o B a c c e Reb Comprehensive Treatment Planning: It Starts with the Diagnosis There are myriad ways to straighten teeth, but ideal treatment involves understanding and addressing the underlying cause of the dental and skeletal discrepancy. Many malocclusions are actually a result of airway issues. Comprehensive orthodontic treatment today requires an understanding of how the malocclusion occurred. Once we have determined the cause, we can design a comprehensive plan that will not only give our patients a great bite but will also make them healthier overall. UPON COMPLETION OF THIS SESSION, ATTENDEES SHOULD BE ABLE TO: „„ Understand how airway influences the development of certain skeletal and dental patterns. „„ Apply methods learned to treat these patients with a comprehensive and interdisciplinary approach. Rebecca Bockow received her DDS from the University of Washington School of Dentistry. Following dental school, Dr. Bockow entered private practice as a general dentist in the Seattle area. In 2009, she moved to Philadelphia to undertake dual training in both orthodontics and periodontics at the University of Pennsylvania School of Dental Medicine, where she also earned an MS in oral biology.

n i t s u A a u h Jos #ReputationMatters Successful outcomes often depend as much on managing expectations as anything else. Patients’ expectations can have an impact on a practice’s online reputation as well, and sometimes they can be mined for marketing gold. This isn’t without pitfalls, however; expectations can also be turned against us after treatment is completed. Success, from both a clinical and a patient management perspective, depends on staying focused on what really matters. UPON COMPLETION OF THIS SESSION, ATTENDEES SHOULD BE ABLE TO: „„ Discuss what advantages we have in dentistry that can be leveraged into great patient experiences and endorsements. „„ Identify and discuss a significant threat from an influential online review platform. Joshua Austin maintains a full-time restorative dentistry private practice in San Antonio, Texas. He is also an editorial director and columnist for Dental Economics, focusing on dental products and technology.
