AGD Coding

CE Credits: 4
AGD Code: 670
Subject: Prosthodontics/Removable
               Lecture

Tuition: Dentist $195 Staff $145
Advanced Registration $50 off by 1/6/14

*Breakfast Included

Location: 1060 Main Street, Suite 201, River Edge NJ, 07661 

Course Description:


The course will contribute to the dentist’s knowledge and ability to treat the edentulous patient by constructing dentures that are not only functional, but are esthetically and cosmetically pleasing as well.

In addition, the practitioner will understand how to extend and apply the basics to mini implant denture stabilization and to techniques in which the denture becomes the matrix for hybrid implant cases, all-on-four type restorations or fixed implant rehabilitations.

The practitioner will learn to visualize each step in advance in order to achieve the desired appearance and function of the dentures.  Streamlined impression techniques will be taught as well as the ability to specify proper denture teeth placements, recognize and correct errors introduced by uninformed lab technicians and place complete control of the denture process where it belongs – in the hands of the dentist. 

About the Speaker:
David Isaak, DDS

In 1974, Dr. Isaak founded the Dr. Isaak Dental Group in Jersey City, which has treated more than 30,000 edentulous patients to date. In 1978 he established the Denture Center in New York City. (Further information can be found on samedaydentures.net).

Location: 1060 Main Street, Suite 201, River Edge NJ, 07661 

Course Description: 

In clinical practice, what at first seems routine, often isn’t.  Patients can present with situations far from ideal and yet we are called upon to treat them. This presentation will take you on a journey with multiple patients who easily could have shown up in your office.

Morning Lecture: 

In the morning we’ll cover many recent advances in aesthetic and restorative dentistry.  We will demystify some of the newer composite and adhesive materials we have available.  We’ll discuss the basic principles of Aesthetic Dentistry and how to create beautiful, natural looking anterior and posterior tooth colored restorations predictably, successfully, and easier than ever.  Predictability leads to lower stress levels, higher profits, and happier patients.

You will learn:
  • The benefits of the new chameleon composite technology
  • How to reduce time spent on achieving lifelike restorations
  • How to reduce technique sensitivity no matter how you bond
  • How to achieve zero post-op sensitivity in your restorations
  • How to treat patients with hypersensitive teeth 
  • Which composites polish fastest and easiest, and retain their initial shine
  • How to solve dilemmas with no perfect solution
    AND as a bonus…
  • The latest material and technique for removing white spot lesions

AFTERNOON HANDS-ON:

Materials and equipment will be provided. AND as a bonus...you'll learn how to give patients relief from dentures that continually hurt. 

On typodonts, you will work with materials simulating multiple real-life clinical situations, including:
  • New delivery system for popular self-etch adhesive
  • Class 1 or Class 2 restorations using state-of-the-art matrix system ensuring good contacts
  • Class 3 or Class 4 restorations using chameleon composite
  • Class 3 or Class 4 restorations using chameleon composite
  • Class 5 restoration using unique, highly-filled and polishable flowable
Join us for a memorable learning experience. Whether you are starting out or a seasoned clinician,                   you will leave with knowledge and techniques you can use in your practice immediately.

BONE GRAFTING: EXTRACTION SITE AND RIDGE         PRESERVATION, The Foundation for Dental Implants (HANDS-ON)  

Presenter: Jon B. Suzuki, DDS,PhD,
                 MBA, FACD, FICD

Date: Friday, January 24, 2014
Time: 9:00am - 5:00pm

CE Credits: 7
AGD Code: 499
Subject: Bone Grafting/
              GTR Surgery Participation

Tuition: Dentists $595

*Breakfast & Gourmet Lunch Included

*Limited to 24 Attendees

Sponsored by: Hu-Friedy


Location: 1060 Main Street, Suite 201, River Edge NJ, 07661 
 

Course Description:

Each year in the US, millions of teeth are extracted due to conditions such as caries, trauma and advanced periodontal disease Extraction site grafting and ridge preservation procedures offer significant advantages to the patient and the dental practice, but many dentists still aren’t taking advantage of the benefits these procedures offer to their patients.

Tooth extraction without concomitant socket grafting results in osseous deformities of the alveolar ridge, such as reduced height and width. This makes subsequent management of esthetics and implant placement very challenging. Socket grafting using a bone graft substitute has been shown to significantly reduce the bone loss, better maintain the ridge dimensions and enhance the clinician’s ability to provide esthetically and functionally satisfying restorations at a later time.

This course will help you understand site development principles and bone grafting protocols leading to the optimal foundation for esthetics and implant success. Attendees will gain the skill sets necessary to achieve predictable hard tissue augmentation and work with grafting materials in a hands-on setting.

HANDS-ON PORTION:

Performed on pig jaws from extraction, preparation placement of bone grafts
  • Principle of successful hard tissue augmentation 
  • Steps to performing extraction socket grafting and ridge preservation
  • Instrumentation used to successfully perform bone augmentation
  • Bone graft materials and indications for particular material
  • Bone grafting complications
  • Hands-on extraction socket grafting utilizing instructed technique
  • Site development
  • Bone graft & membrane placement
  • Suture technique

CE Credits: 6
AGD Code: 070
Subject: Endo Participation

Tuition: Dentists $350
Advanced Registration $100 off by 1/6/14

*Breakfast & Gourmet Lunch Included

Sponsored by: Brasseler USA


Location: 1060 Main Street, Suite 201, River Edge NJ, 07661

                                 
Course Description: 

This presentation will describe the "Evolution of Endodontic Technique" beginning with basic biologic principles and concluding with new methodology to make your endodontics better and more efficient.

The lecture segment will concentrate on three areas.

  • How to incorporate new material science, such as bioceramic technology into your practice
  • How to perform root canal therapy in such a manner that you actually enhance the long-term prognosis of the tooth
  • Understanding the Endo-Restorative Continuum and its implications for your practice

The goal of this program is to have all dentists learn how to perform exceptional endodontics in such a manner that they do not destroy the tooth in the process. Real World Endo remains committed to the preservation of the natural dentition as an alternative to implants. 

Included in the lecture component will be:

  • a thorough discussion concerning access
  • non- surgical ultrasonic use
  • rotary file design
  • instrumentation techniques
  • a new bioceramic obturation method

Particular emphasis will be placed on developing endodontic synchronicity (a matching system) between a machined preparation and a laser verified master bioceramic coated cone. Additionally, a new obturation technique (Synchronized Hydraulic Condensation) will be introduced and all participants will have the opportunity to validate these concepts during the hands-on session.

HANDS-ON PORTION:

The hands-on session provides the participants the opportunity to use "Real World " techniques and to witness first-hand, how they will change the way they practice endodontics.

During this lecture/hands-on participants will learn:

1. How to create straight-line access that will expedite the endodontic process

2. Discover how endodontics can be precision-based

3. The importance of preserving coronal radicular dentin

4. How to "machine" or "mill" an endodontic preparation

5. The benefits of developing "endodontic synchronicity" between a machined preparation and 
a master cone

6. The multiple advantages of performing a constant .04 taper preparation

7. Learn the new "synchronized hydraulic condensation" technique featuring the use of 
bioceramic technology

8. How best to restore an endodontically treated tooth

9. The multiple benefits of Piezo Electric Ultrasonics

10. Most importantly of all, how to perform endodontics in such a manner that you do not   
compromise the long-term retention of the tooth. In fact, learn how to do endodontics so 
that you actually enhance the long-term prognosis of the tooth

For the Ultimate Real World Experience, attendees are encouraged to bring two to four accessed, extracted teeth.

Course Description: 

The “Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (ACA ) has the potential to restructure health coverage in the United States.  Expansion in Dental coverage is a reality, as is the move towards more integrated care and changes in the financing of Health Care.  The primary focus of this class is the effects of the new law on Dentistry and the delivery of dental services to patients.

Tooth decay is the most common childhood disease in this country, particularly among low income kids.  It appears that the ACA places this need on high priority.  Consequently, young Americans will see many positive benefits from the new law.  According to the Delta Dental Plan Association starting in 2104 most children will be picked up either through private or public options.  This is not the case for adults.  In this class we will study the dichotomy between the ACA treatment of children and adults.  We will help to clarify what steps dentist need to take to prepare for the changes the ACA introduces and how to anticipate receiving payment for services.  We will also attempt to understand how dentist should treat their employees with the availability of Health Care Insurance Exchanges depending on State of residency.

HANDS-ON PORTION:

Participants will:

 
1. Prep a crowded dentition model (six teeth) and fabricate a six unit bonded provisional with the help of Smile Vision's Hard-Soft template.  (this is an instant ortho case!)

2. Fabricate four direct composite veneers (7-10) using the "split Splint" technique and Smile Vision's Soft Template only

3. Experience Coltene's Componeer direct bonding system by placing two Componeers (8 and 9) on provided models. 
 
In essence, the techniques discussed in the didactic portion of the seminar will be experienced during the hands on portion of the day with Smile Vision Inc and Coltene Inc  providing the needed models and materials and electric handpieces.  Bring your loupes!!

Results:

Essential Anterior Dentistry is an excellent “re-entry” for the practitioner who has drifted away from anterior dentistry or for those desiring greater involvement in one of dentistry’s most satisfying endeavors. Econo-methods for smile rehabilitation can re-open dialog with patients whose budgets have not allow for ceramic solutions.  Today’s economy demands creativity and resourcefulness.

    Course Description:
     

    Hiossen’s CAS-Kit
    In the posterior maxilla, a residual bone height is limited by the presence of the sinus and often plays a key factor for the placement of dental implants. The CAS-Kit makes crestal sinus lifts simple and predictable by eliminating the usage of mallet and the risk or chance of perforation by using stoppers and the hydraulic lifter.

    Hiossen’s LAS-Kit
    Hiossen’s Lateral Approach Sinus Kit (LASK) is specifically designed for a fast and safe lateral approach to graft bone, lifting the sinus membrane. The LASK offers various usages depending on the oral anatomy and surgical plane.

    The LASK contains a dome drill to create a lateral window, a wide dome drill to widen the window and a core drill that can create a core bone lid which can be used to seal the window without additional membrane. The LASK consists of:

    Dome and Core drills to create a lateral window
    Stopper system to prevent excessive and over drilling
    Dome drill that allows for exceptional cutting ability through the combined use of macro and micro                     blades
    Core drill, which allows for a continued successful design concept of the CAS drills
    Wide dome drill and side wall drill to enlarge the window

    This course will discuss:
    1. Sinus Anatomy
    2.    Crestal Approach                                                                                                                                                
             * Indications and limitations
             * Crestal approach using Osteotome
             * Crestal approach using CAS-Kit
      3.    Lateral Window Approach
             * Indications and imitations
             * Traditional lateral window Augmentation Technique
             * Lateral window Augmentation using Piezotome
             * Lateral window Augmentation using LAS-Kit
      4.    Sinus complication and management

    Hands-On Portion:

    Attendees will be covering an approach to minimally invasive sinus lift surgery, utilizing a unique Crestal Approach sinus technique on a sinus model.

    At the conclusion of Dr. Chong's lecture, you will have a better understanding of sinus lifts and how advanced and precise the CAS Kit is in Sinus Lift Surgery.

     IMPLANT SUCCESS VIA INNOVATIONS IN TECHNOLOGY: Restoratively Driven Implant Dentistry  (HANDS-ON)  

    Presenter: Scott D. Ganz, DMD

    Date: Wednesday, May 7, 2014  


    Time: 9:00am - 5:00pm

    AGD Coding

    CE Credits: 7
    AGD Code: 691/695
    Subject: Surgical Phase Therapy/
                  Implant Restorative Participation

    Breakfast & Gourmet Lunch Included

    Tuition: Dentists $495
    Advanced Registration $50 off by 4/30/14

    Sponsored by: Dentium

    Location: 1060 Main Street, Suite 201, River Edge NJ, 07661

     

    Course Description:

    It has been stated that the “goal of implant dentistry is not the implant, it is the tooth that we
    replace…” Achieving successful implant reconstruction is therefore dependent on many
    factors. It is no longer acceptable to place the implant “where the bone was” as this concept
    has little impact on the functional and aesthetic outcomes desired by the patient.

    The most desirable implant receptor site should always correlate with the ultimate restorative goal,
    and under ideal conditions should be known in advance of the surgical intervention. This can best
    be achieved through proper diagnosis and treatment planning.

    New surgical and prosthodontic paradigms have now been established which utilize advances
    in CT/CBCT imaging technology which allow clinicians an unprecedented appreciation of the
    patientʼs anatomy for pre-surgical assessment of dental implant receptor sites, bone grafting or
    other procedures.

    Currently available planning software can interface with the 3-D CT/CBCT data with a varied degree
    of virtual tools and interactive treatment planning capabilities. These tools, if used properly, can help
    clinicians achieve true restoratively driven implant dentistry. Therefore, technology can play an
    important role in maximizing both functional and esthetic results.

    This presentation will demonstrate how new paradigms in pre-surgical planning can aid in the
    assessment of the soft tissue housing necessary for proper emergence profiles, determination
    of interproximal height of bone, understand abutment considerations, assessing embrasures,
    occlusal considerations, choice of abutments, temporization, and how they affect the ultimate
    functional and esthetic result through various case illustrations. Additionally, participants will
    learn about implant design, differences in abutment connection, and the surgical instrumentation
    needed to place implants.

    Hands-On Portion:

    Following the didactic portion of the program, a hands-on practical session will take place where attendees will have actual experience drilling osteotomies and placing implants into simulated models, based upon protocols reviewed by Dr. Ganz.  

    Participants Will Learn:
    • To understand proper diagnostic protocols based upon CT/CBCT scanning technology
    • To appreciate the "Triangle of Bone" concept for correct implant placement
    • To understand basic decision trees for screw-retained vs. cement-retained restorative planning

    Sponsored by: 3M, WhipMix, Tekscan

     

    Location: 1060 Main Street, Suite 201, River Edge NJ, 07661


    Course Description:

    Patient demand for cosmetic dentistry has never been greater.  This has led many dentists to invest considerable time, effort, and money, mastering various cosmetic procedures and techniques.  While this is commendable, it should be recognized that it is one thing to be able to make pretty teeth, and an entirely different thing to make pretty teeth that actually last and function in harmony with the rest of the masticatory system.  An acceptable cosmetic result, without regard for function and/or parafunction, will often result in premature case failure.  

    What the truly successful clinician of today requires is a logical and systematic methodology in approaching cosmetic/restorative cases that will lead to a reasonably predictable and durable end result.  This requires a practical understanding of fundamental occlusal principles, materials, and more importantly, just how to use them. Just what is the difference between centric relation (CR), centric occlusion (CO), and maximum intercuspation (MIP)?  How do you know what to use where? This program will stress the concept of comprehensive dentistry and show how to predictably treatment plan and provide dentistry ranging from porcelain veneers to complex full-mouth reconstructions.  A number of clinical cases will be shown and discussed.

    • Envisioning the big picture (total dentistry for total success)
    • Cosmetics and occlusion (it looks great, but will it last?)
    • The comprehensive exam (the place to start)
    • Anatomy and diagnosis of the TMJ (occlusion begins here)
    • Introduction to occlusal science (force be with you?)
    • Facebow transfers (why and how)
    • Centric relation bite records (bilateral manipulation, Lucia jigs, Leaf gauges, and more)
    • Esthetics and function (why you must have both to be successful)
    • How to approach a full mouth reconstruction (CR? MIP? NM?)
    • When to use CR…and when not to!
    • Vertical Dimension – How do you determine where it should be?
    • Neuromuscular Occlusion (fact or fiction?)
    • Effective lab communication (a critical key to success)
    Hands-On Portion:

    The Hands-On portion will have attendees taking face-bow transfers on one another and also experimenting with Lucia Jigs and Leaf Gauges. In addition, attendees will see a demonstration with the T-Scan 3 and have an opportunity to take occlusal readings utilizing the T-Scan.  

    About the Speaker:

        Topics:
        • Modern concepts of occlusion and guidance development
        • The relationship of occlusal findings and musculature and patient symptoms
        • How to check occlusion with marking paper and what the marks mean
        • How to record and adjust occlusal contacts using a computer
        • Analyzing time vs. force measurements
        • How to know what to adjust
        Hands-On Portion

        Dentists will break into groups of 3 or 4 and each participant will check occlusion on others in the group. Each person will get "hands-on" time collecting data and "hands-on" time using the computer.

        Attendees are encouraged to bring their laptop & T-Scan (if they own one) to the course.

        About the Speaker:

        Course Description:

        Increasing clinical recognition of mucogingival defects including gingival recession may require Periodontal Plastic Surgery (Mucogingival soft tissue surgery). Free Gingival Grafts (Autogenous and Allograft) are used to augment existing lack of keratinized gingival or enhance a pre-implant or pre-prosthetic site.

        Connective Tissue (Autogenous and Allograft) are used for root coverage or to enhance a thin biotype for prosthetic or esthetic improvements of soft tissue. This course includes lecture, video, and hands-on (pig jaws) opportunities to understand these concepts and apply them to clinical practice.

        Course Objectives:

        1. Diagnose mucogingival defects.
        2. Recognize pre-implant and pre-prosthetic clinical sites requiring plastic surgery
        3. Know how to harvest soft tissue autografts for mucogingival graft surgery.
        4. Know how to use soft tissue allografts for mucogingival surgery.
        5. Know how to apply these procedures for free gingival graft and connective tissue graft surgery.

        The HANDS-ON portion of the program will be performed on pig jaws and include:

         • How to perform incisions, flap elevation and flap positioning

         • Free gingival grafts using harvested autogenus tissue

          Philosophy of care and practice management, computerized charting, photography, digital radiography, non surgical periodontal care, oral pathology, oral medicine, cosmetics (dental, oral and facial), orofacial development and growth, orthodontics, pharmacology, medical histories, medical emergencies, occlusion, lasers, diagnostics, TMJ and orofacial pain, sealants, new chemotherapeutic  agents and delivery systems, anesthetics, pediatric dentistry, implants, halitosis, snoring and sleep apnea, and more!

          About the Speaker:
          Kenneth N. Feiler, DMD, FAGD

          Dr. Feiler started his dental practice in 1979 as a solo general practitioner with a special interest in bonded composite cosmetic makeovers, morphing into a large group practice a year later and then as a cosmetic dentist developed a boutique cosmetic group practice in 1985. With the addition of orthodontics and surgery, it again developed into a large multi-specialty group. Feiler Dental Associates has had ten different offices located over the years in both NJ and NY, and presently is a multi-specialty, multi-location group practice, with 40 total staff employed, including 3 locations, 10 dentists and 7 hygienists all in northern NJ. He presently limits his personal practice to difficult and unusual cases, oral health, mentoring, practice administration and development.

          A graduate of Rutgers College as well as the Fairleigh Dickinson University School of Dental Medicine where Dr. Feiler later taught prosthodontics and oral diagnosis, he has written and continues to write articles on all aspects of dentistry. This has expanded into founding and directing the New Jersey Health Professionals Development Institute (NJHPDI).

          Dr. Feiler has been an Accredited Member of the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry (AACD) for over 20 years. He has been an Elite and Premier Invisalign Provider and a member of the Academy of Laser Dentistry,  Academy of General Dentistry and the American Society of Pediatric Dentistry. Among Dr. Feiler's other achievements are a fellowship from the Academy of General Dentistry and with a background in biochemistry and dental research, a fellowship at the National Institute of Dental Research in Bethesda, Maryland.

          Course Description:

          Implants and esthetic bridges require atraumatic extractions. The emphasis of this presentation is on routine extractions that become more difficult than expected

          The presentation will cover:

          • Advanced instruments and procedures as taught in modern oral surgery residency
          • How to avoid or manage many common complications, such as bleeding problems with patients on anticoagulants
          • Managing infections

          Single extraction expertise will be taken to the next level for socket preservations, multiple extractions with alveoplasty, frenectomies, exostosis removal and other minor dentoalveolar procedures.

          This course will enable the general dentist to:

          • Broaden the range of surgery procedures done in the office
          • Better avoid or treat common surgical complications
          • Do surgery procedures more quickly and predictably
          • More clearly understand surgical "standards of care"

          • Do socket bone grafts according to current, commonly used techniques

          Hands-On Portion:
           
          The hands-on portion will be performed on life-like dentoform models
          , performing surgery procedures that are a prelude to doing them on patients. The principles and techniques from the discussion will be realistically implemented on the models.   

          The following will be performed on the models during the Hands-On portion:

          • Surgical extractions
          • Socket preservation with bone graft material and barrier membrane
          • Partial bony impactions performed with flap reflection
          • Bone removal to avoid sensitive anatomic structure
          • Preventing a dry socket
          • Multiple extractions followed by alveoplasty and continuous-lock suturing
          • Other minor oral surgery procedures

          This course will enable the general dentist to:

          • Go back to the office with superior knowledge
          • Have a solid feel for soft tissue incisions, bone removal and placement of bone graft material
          • Know first-hand how various surgical materials are used and/or manipulated
          • Receive one-on-one instruction and feedback on a number of procedures
          • Understand what current "standards of care" are regarding several surgeries commonly done in a general practice

            Course Description:

            Have you noticed the new reimbursement challenges that began in 2014? Crowns with and without buildups not being approved like they used to? Now with every D4341 they want radiographs and periodontal charts and then they pay it at D4342. Get ready, because it’s going to get a lot tougher before it gets any easier. Better yet – get prepared for tomorrow’s world of changing reimbursement systems.

            This full day workshop will provide for you a comprehensive overview of the skills and information needed to cope with, as well as profit from, market changes. Learn to work with and understand the patient’s benefit plan restrictions and limitations. Even if your office doesn’t accept the insurance assignment, you shouldn’t ignore this critical component of “Value Added” customer service while you streamline and simplify the reimbursement process.

            In addition, the workshop will provide for you the basic skills and information needed to cope with, as well as profit from, market changes. Benefit plan provisions, limitations, exclusions and carve outs of coverage can have a direct correlation with the patient accepting comprehensive treatment. Learn to work with and understand the patient's plan.

            As concerns coding, CDT was supposed to make our lives easier. During the day we will focus on the most common, as well as challenging sections of the coding sequence. Clinical scenarios will be discussed from both the clinical as well as the administrative perspectives. Appropriate coding and clinical documentation will take the mystique (as well as headache) out of the entire reimbursement process.

            The day will conclude with Tom’s “Seven Keys to Reimbursement Success.” Over the years, its strength, as well as flexibility, proves to be a winning strategy for every dental office.

            For the better part of almost 40 years, the Limoli’s have guided dental offices and the various components of the benefits industry in streamlining and simplifying the overall reimbursement process. Their straightforward and direct approach has been embraced and implemented in thousands of practices across the country. The width and depth of Tom’s knowledge and perspective make for a uniquely refreshing educational experience.

            Course Description:
             

            The objective of this course is to familiarize the general dentist with biologic and clinical principles that will allow for a successful outcome with non-surgical root canal therapy.  The course is also designed to teach the general dentist how to effectively, efficiently and predictably achieve endodontic success and immediately implement those skills into their practice.

            The course will consist of a lecture portion and hands-on. During the hands-on segment, participants will have the opportunity to shape, clean, and obturate the root canal systems. Following completion of the course, participants should be able to:

            Accurately diagnose a patient's chief complaint
            Complete access preparation and necessary tools
            Understand canal morphology and understand successful endodontic treatment  
            Proper use of rotary instrumentation and maintenance of Glide Path      
            Use current research to gain better understanding of how to eliminate intracanal bacteria
            Complete review of endodontic irrigants
            Obturation of the root canal system
            Understand why some endodontic cases fail to heal despite seemingly ideal endodontic treatment
            Post-op pain management and when to use antibiotics 
            HANDS-ON PORTION:

            In the hands-on portion, participants will be guided through a complete endodontic procedure using an extracted, accessed tooth provided by the attendee  and  a acrylic block/tooth provided by the sponsor.  During the hands-on procedure, the attendee will learn:

            Selection of the proper orifice opener
            Selection of hand instruments that are required in order to obtain a predictable Glide Path
            Selection of rotary instruments and techniques for filing with NiTi and CM rotary files
            Using acrylic models to assess proper irrigation and Obturation techniques

            Attendees are asked to bring numerous extracted teeth, which have been previously accessed.

            Following completion of the course, participants should be able to:
            • Accurately diagnose a patient's chief complaint
            • Understand canal morphology and understand successful endodontic treatment
            • Use current research to gain better understanding of how to eliminate intracanal bacteria
