He has lectured for many dental groups on the use of anesthesia in dentistry.

Dr. Marvin Leventer Course content will focus on practical techniques used by most private practitioners for in-office conscious sedation and local anesthesia. Content focuses on oral sedation, nitrous oxide and local anesthesia. Children and adults will be discussed. Course format includes learning via checklists, case presentations, and videos of patient care. Course topics include: • What do patients need and/or want?

This presentation is funded by an educational grant from JLK Group.

• What is included in proper patient assessment? • What are the drugs used for sedation? • What airway management techniques are needed for sedation?

Tuesday, July 24 • 8 a.m.–noon

• What monitors do we need?

Clinical Issues and Lessons Learned in Implants, Extractions and Failure to Diagnose Cases

• What is the pharmacology of local anesthetics? • What are techniques of infiltration and nerve blocks? • How do we use local anesthesia reversal medications and topicals? • What are common complications of sedation and local anesthesia?

Dr. Michael Ragan, DMD, JD, LLM

• What are the common drug interactions we should know?

This session presents strategies to enhance quality care and patient safety by identifying potential malpractice issues and associated clinical risk management principles. Through a comprehensive analysis of dental claims, the presentation explores cases involving dental extractions and implants, failure to diagnose oral cancer and periodontal disease, pain control and opioid management, communication, documentation, the informed consent process, and HIPAA/HITECH regulations. This presentation is designed for dentists and dental staff. There are no prerequisites.

• What can we learn from case studies of M and M data? This presentation is appropriate for dentists, dental hygienists and dental assistants. Marvin Leventer received his dental degree from the University of Maryland in 1990.

Objectives of this session include:

Wednesday, July 25 • 8 a.m.–noon

• Identify common risk factors in implant, extraction and failure to diagnose cases.

Opioids: Their Impact on You, Your Family and Your Dental Practice

• Understand how to implement key clinical risk management strategies to help mitigate associated risk factors, improve patient safety and reduce negative outcomes and malpractice claims. • Gain knowledge about pain control and opioid management, including considerations for prescribing and securing opioids in the dental practice as well as current legislative trends.

Dr. Harold L. Crossley, DDS, PhD

• Learn effective policies and procedures to help improve HIPAA/HITECH compliance in the dental practice.

This program will discuss the addictive nature, abuse and medicinal benefits of opioids, marijuana and alcohol—the “big three.” For centuries they have been used to control pain and suffering, but at what cost to us, our families and our dental practices? This lecture will uncover fascinating details regarding the origins and influence of the “big three” and their significant effect on our society today. Attend this lecture and discover how little you know about these influential drugs.

The big three: opiods, marijuana, and alcohol and their impact on you, your family, and your dental practice!

Three-Dimensional Endodontic Instrumentation and Obturation Dr. Mario Abdennour At last endodontic evolution meets endodontic revolution! After two decades of research and experimentation with nickle titanium (NiTi) rotary instruments, an expandable rotary instrument has been created. New adaptive three-dimensional files have produced a revolution in simplicity, efficiency and safety for you and your patients. These unique instruments expand at body temperature effectively debriding and disinfecting oval and irregular shaped canals without compromising the structural integrity of the treated tooth. This body temperature transformation allows faster and safer instrumentation using less files than conventional techniques. The improved filedentin interface allows minimally invasive root canal preparations that can easily be obturated using bioceramics. True 3-D instrumentation and obturation has arrived. At the conclusion of this presentation, participants will have learned:

In 2000 he received his specialty certificate in endodontics, as well as a master in medical sciences in oral biology from the Advanced Graduate Endodontic Program at Harvard University School of Dental Medicine. Dr. Abdennour currently holds a faculty appointment as a clinical instructor at the Advanced Graduate Endodontic Program at the Harvard School of Dental Medicine, where he teaches surgical and nonsurgical endodontics on a part-time basis. During his specialty program, he also trained in surgical endodontics at the Karl-Franzens University Hospital in Austria. Upon graduation from Harvard, he was the class recipient of the Krakow Award for Clinical Proficiency in Endodontics. In addition, Dr. Abdennour has conducted endodontic research at the Forsyth Institute in Boston contributing in the patent of a therapeutic endodontic agent. He has also instructed and presented live endodontic surgery for the endodontic program of the West Virginia University School of Dentistry. Dr. Abdennour has also served as the president of the Greater Salem District Dental Society in New Hampshire and as the chairman of the Merrimack Valley District Dental Society in Massachusetts. Dr. Abdennour has also served the Merrimack Valley District Dental Society as scientific co-chair and assistant secretary. Presently, he is the president of the Massachusetts Association of Endodontists. As a member of Real World Endo’s board of advisors, Dr. Abdennour is certified to conduct lectures and seminars on precision-based endodontics.

• The basic foundations of endodontic success.
