You are invited to two days of outstanding continuing education and professional collegiality as we continue the long tradition of the society in November of this year. Here is some detailed information regarding the event:
THE EDUCATIONAL PROGRAM:
On Saturday Morning, November 4, our popular Mini-Lecture Series, which features outstanding educators and clinicians from the New England Area, will include three one-hour courses:
8:30 to 9:30 AM – Nouh Hesham, BDS, DSc, MSD, CAGS – “DIGITAL DENTISTRY, ITS IMPACT ON FIXED AND REMOVABLE PROSTHETICS AND IMPLANT DENTISTRY”
9:45 to 10:45 AM – Ian Grayson, DDS, MMSc, FRCD – “THE ART OF ENDODONTIC DIAGNOSIS”
11:00 AM to 12:00 Noon – Robert DeFrancesco, DMD and David Russell, DMD, MPH – “WHAT YOU KNOW AND DON’T KNOW ABOUT TODAY’S BORID”
Our Main Course will be begin on Saturday afternoon, continue on Sunday morning and conclude on Sunday afternoon at 3:30 PM:
1:30 PM to 5:00 PM, on Saturday Afternoon and 8:15 AM to 3:30 PM on Sunday – Martin Kaplan, DMD – “DENTAL LASERS IN PEDIATRIC DENTISTRY FOR THE GENERAL PRACTITIONER AND PEDIATRIC DENTIST”.
Included in Dr. Kaplan’s course will be a review of laser physics, safety and tissue interaction and selecting the correct laser for a particular clinical situation.
Attendees will learn how to select and safely use the proper laser for soft tissue treatment, including oral surgery, and dental and pulpal trauma cases (cases that they may not have previously considered to be in the realm of daily practice). Attendees will understand why laser education is imperative and why relying on “pre-sets” on the clinical laser is not a guarantee of success.
Dr. Kaplan will show cases of esthetic re-contouring, surgical exposure of delayed and ectopic eruption, gingivectomy, interceptive orthodontics, frenectomy, treatment of speech, eating, and sleep apnea disorders, surgical treatment for breastfeeding difficulties, biopsy, oral surgery, soft tissue use around implant cases, and treatment of dental and pulpal trauma. Selected cases will be presented so that the dentist will be better informed about the potentialities of laser surgery and so that they can begin to consider treating cases that are often referred out.
(Advanced cases, such as controversial periodontal treatment, peri-implantitis and complex oral surgery will not be covered in this basic pediatric laser presentation.)
CE Credits: Each of the four offered courses is independently assigned CE credit hours, depending on the course length. Attendees may receive a total of 13 hours of Continuing Education credit by attending all four courses in their entirety. The New England Dental Society is an AGD/ PACE approved provider of continuing education.
