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"
  • Have a better grasp of what surgery procedures need to be referred
  • 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.   


  • 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: 

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. 

Diagnosis, treatment planning, case presentations, and finally, how excellent results were obtained even with less than desirable beginnings will be discussed.  This is real-life dentistry that we all have to deal with in our practices.   

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


Materials and equipment will be provided. AND as a'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.
