Sunday, 11.25 Speaker Course
10:00-11:00 (EST) Dr. Howard Glazer Baby Boomers Can Be Beautifil!
There is no doubt that the use of flowable resins has had an impact on adhesive resin restorative dentistry. Now more than ever before we can rely on flowable resins to be safely and effectively used in a variety of restorative procedures due their availability in a wide range of shades, ability to resist wear, and maintain a high glossy finish. Beautifil Flow Plus is just such a material that can be used in so many instances.And, to compliment Beautifil Flow Plus, there is the conventional composite Beautifil II which is extremely durable, long lasting and ideal in larger restorative instances. Dr. Glazer will discuss the various uses of both these GIOMER based materials relative to their properties and clinical usage.Session objectives:

  • To be able to understand the various uses for composite resin materials in restorative situations
  • To be able to understand the value of GIOMER chemistry
  • To be able to understand the concept of micro-invasive cosmetic dentistry
11:15-12:15 (EST) Dr. Mark Duncan Dentistry’s Dirty Little Secrets… What Is It That We Don’t Know.
In this presentation we will uncover some of the hidden connections between a healthy and pain free patient and what issues 80% of adult patients present with. There are so many issues that patients suffer with that are dentally related but are totally missed because they don’t know to talk to their dentists about them.Patients with chronic pain and headaches… patients with numb finger tips… patients with lower back issues… there are 500 plus issues that can be related to the bite and in the average New Patient Exam the vast majority don’t even come up. This presentation will discuss the variety of Signs and Symptoms that are quite often related to dental issues and help to create the base of conversation to help these patients to discover how to get help.  Session objectives:

  • Illustration of many less obvious but quite serious dentally related symptoms
  • Commonly found signs of bite disease and how this may affect the health of the patient
  • Some simple screens that will help highlight patients whose lives can be greatly improved – and in some cases lives actually saved!!
12:45-13:45 (EST) Dr. Mark McOmie Materials and Methods for your practice
Trends in dentistry are moving away from traditional crown and bridge materials such as PFM and to all ceramic and zirconia restorations. What are the best materials for which application? What trends are going to affect our practices in the coming years? With all these new materials what are the best materials and where are there applications best suited.  Session objectives:

  • Attendees will leave with a solid understanding of the newest materials and be able to implement them effectively in their practices the next day
14:00-15:00 (EST) Dr. Louis Malcmacher The Top 8 Game Changers in Dentistry Today
The primary goal of this seminar is to teach dentists and team members how to take a common sense approach to their practices to integrate new techniques and concepts in teeth remineralization, Botox and dermal fillers, bone saving exodontia, medical emergency kits, short term orthodontics, sleep apnea, the most esthetic no preparation porcelain veneers, a new way to eliminate black triangles, new technology comparison, and much more!These practical concepts will enable you to offer new dental services immediately, reduce your stress, significantly increase your production, substantially lower your overhead, and have fun doing dentistry.
