Target Audience
Dentists and Dental Auxiliary Personnel
Program Purpose / Objectives
Implant Dentistry: Implant practice for the restorative dentist Every day, Implant dentistry finds more impetus within the general dental practice. This lecture will discuss all aspects of dental implantology and how it relates to the practice of general dentistry. It will outline the important principles for incorporation of dental implant procedures, both surgical and restorative, within the general practice and it will give specific information about various types of dental implant procedures which are amenable to the private practice.
Implant Classification System and other diagnostic aids: All dental procedures start with diagnosis and treatment planning procedures and dental implantology is no exception. As a matter of fact, these procedures become more critical in the dental practice for implant procedures because there is very little margin for error here. These lecturers will give the restorative dentist a firm basis for diagnosis and treatment planning as well as a complete understanding of treatment alternatives using dental implants.
Implant Overdentures: Implant overdentures are the bread and butter procedures of the general practice. There are lots of options here and this series will give the practitioner a complete understanding of what they are and when to use them.
Transitional Implants: The latest addition to our implantological armamentarium is the mini or transitional implant. These techniques are easily mastered and easily applied to the general practice of restorative dentistry. The transitional implant is a non-surgical, rapid solution to overcoming edentulism for many of our patients.
Bone Grafting: Today it is essential that we understand the significance and technique of bone grafting in the placement of dental implants. These procedures are well established and fairly easy to master at this time.
Patient Seminar: This lecture is one for patients to understand the procedures and benefits of dental implants. It has been developed over the past 1‘5 years and has been found to be an excellent adjunct in patient education.
Marketing: Nothing gets done unless you can attract the patients that need these procedures into your office. This series will discuss all aspects of marketing including internal and external marketing. Patient education is a big part of this series.
Cosmetic Dentistry: The smile evaluation. The first requirement for providing a cosmetic dental result is the ability to properly evaluate the present cosmetic condition. Cosmetics is the “big picture” and it takes a bit of experience to properly evaluate and correct.
Function vs Cosmetics: Here is the crux of cosmetic dentistry. If you improve appearance by sacrificing function, you have only failure. True cosmetic dentistry provides both functional and cosmetic improvement for the patients.
Long term results: The key to success. We will discuss this subject from many aspects.
Major Dental Rehabilitation: One tooth dentistry: The fallacy of practice. Unfortunately, most of us were taught one tooth dentistry in dental school. This is the quickest path to failure. In order to properly restore a dentition, it is essential to consider the entire masticatory system.
Selecting and selling the patients: Patients do not usually come in for major definitive procedures. They are very often seeking simplified solutions for local problems and these solutions usually do not result in overall improvement of the condition. You have to be able to educate and “sell” your patients on definitive dentistry.
The role of the specialists in todayÂ’s reconstructive dentistry: While we all occasionally try to go it alone, there is a large need in major dental rehabilitative procedures for a sharing of the resources and an incorporation of trained specialists for various phases of treatment. The key is to know when and why to use a specialist in the treatment of your patients.
Long term results: the goal. Again, long term results are the keys to success. How can you insure your long term results?
Conference Sessions generally take place on days at sea (as itinerary allows), giving you plenty of time to enjoy your meals, evenings and ports of call with your companion, family and friends.

Cruise Line cancellation policies are strictly enforced. For that reason, we urge all of our travelers to carefully consider whether travel insurance is a good value for them.

Certainly, if you have reason to think that "something might come up" that might force you to cancel, travel insurance is worth the cost of the premium. Examples we've seen in the past include ill or frail family members and changes in employment causing relocation.
