THURSDAY, JUNE 8 9AM – NOON (8:30 Registration, Continental Breakfast) “RISK MANAGEMENT FOR DENTAL AUXILIARIES” A Course for Dental Hygienists, Assistants, Office Managers, Administrative Staff Dental hygienists, assistants, and administrative staff comprise an essential part of the dental care team. For that reason, auxiliaries need to fully understand and appreciate those aspects of dental practice that create vulnerabilities for the dentist. This course closely parallels the risk management course offered to dentists. However, it has been modified to be more relevant for dental auxiliaries. At the end of this course, auxiliaries will appreciate their responsibility to their employer dentist and patients in respect to professional liability, recordkeeping, medical and dental history, informed consent, ownership of records and patient relations. This course does not qualify dentists for insurance discounts. 3 MCE Lecture Credits SPEAKER: John P.

The completely electronic health record (EHR) is going to be a reality in the next 10 years. This presentation is designed to raise awareness of the benefits of migration from acetate film and paper charts to a filmless and paperless/chartless dental practice. Important steps in implementing an all-digital system are presented, including recognizing your practice’s real needs and desired workflow, the benefits of the technology to your practice and your patients, and establishing a plan for incorporating the technology in your practice. Discussions will focus on considerations in identifying these requirements, and the staff’s involvement in clarifying these needs, then selecting, integrating and implementing the appropriate systems and mechanisms to accomplish the practice’s goals. At the end of this course, you will understand the efficiency, improved diagnosis, and quality of care a digital office can provide. You will also understand how to implement the technology into your practice to help accomplish your professional goals. 3 MCE Lecture Credits SPEAKER: Scott Benjamin, D.D.S., has been a leader in computerized dental practice management since its infancy.

SATURDAY, JUNE 10 1:30 PM – 4:30 PM (1:00 Registration) “TAKING THE MYSTERY OUT OF DETECTING ORAL CANCER AND POTENTIALLY MALIGNANT DISEASES: SCREENING, DIAGNOSIS, DOCUMENTATION, AND MANAGEMENT” A Course for Dentists, Dental Hygienists, and Dental Assistants Oral cancer is a curable form of cancer, if diagnosed early. When diagnosis and treatment are performed at the Stage 1 level, the success rate is more than 90%. Currently, 30,000 patients are diagnosed annually with oral cancer. The five-year survival rate is only 50%, contributing to more than 9,000 deaths in America each year. This high morbidity rate is caused by the lack of early detection, the patient’s lack of regular oral examinations, and delays in seeking treatment. Today’s technology gives practitioners the ability to detect and diagnose potentially malignant conditions at the earliest stages. Diagnostic modalities range from specialized optical enhancement products to easy-to-use and minimally invasive biopsy techniques designed for use by general practitioners. Early-stage lesions, undetectable by the human eye, can be diagnosed and treated with the new technologies that are now the standard of care. This course will demystify oral cancer. Screening, diagnosis, documentation, and patient management are all important aspects of this process. The course will enhance the ability of dental professionals to deal confidentially with these important issues. Negative effects of tobacco product will be discussed, as well as the recognition, diagnosis, and treatment of cancer and other oral diseases. At the end of this course, you will know: • The effects of tobacco and tobacco products on the oral mucosa and recognize the importance of early recognition and evaluation of oral lesions that result. • Oral cancer epidemiology and classifications • Clinical characteristics of oral cancer and potentially malignant conditions • New modalities for screening and diagnosis of oral cancer
  • 5. • How to record and document clinical findings • Indications for and the proper use of oral biopsy techniques • Appropriate communication skills to use with patients when discussing findings • Referral pathways and mechanisms for oral pathology labs and specialists If you are a NYS- licensed dentist and have not yet taken the mandated oral cancer course for licensure, this course will fulfill the one-time requirement. 3 MCE Lecture Credits SPEAKER: Scott Benjamin, D.D.S., has been a leader in computerized dental practice management since its infancy.
