  3. 3. 911 Protecting Your Patient, Protecting Yourself Medical Emergencies for the Dental Team: Are You a Healthsmart Dentist? The typical dentist can expect to face two dozen medical emergencies in the course of a career. Although the majority of these emergencies are self-limiting with proper treatment, any emergency may turn into a life-threatening disaster if not appropriately managed. This course is designed to equip the dental office with the necessary information to develop an effective response to medical emergencies that may occur in the dental setting. Simulated emergencies using real-life scenarios will be presented using a computerized manikin, and participants will indicate their assessments and responses with a handheld voting system.

  6. 6. 430 Sleep Medicine Mini-Residency There is a growing interest among the dental profession to learn how to treat patients with sleep disordered breathing with oral appliances. The ability to have a continuum of education that will provide this opportunity in a structured fashion is not readily available at the present time. The UCLA mini-residency program is designed to offer a comprehensive experience for the practicing dentist that will connect the medical and dental aspects to this medical disorder. At the completion of the program, the dentist will be competently trained to provide care for these patients. The mini-residency will take place over 4 sessions (1 ½ days per month) for a 4 month period. The course will be comprised of lectures on dental sleep medicine and clinical hands-on experience that will culminate in the actual delivery, adjusting and modification of an oral appli- ance for an optimal outcome.

  8. 8. 980 Advanced Anterior Esthetics: A Hands-on Workshop This course is for the dentist with a basic understanding of esthetic restorative procedures who wants a system to take esthetic diagnosis and treatment to the highest level. It builds upon the UCLA Aesthetic Continuum with advanced hands-on training. Multi Unit anterior cases are tricky because the dentist has to set up the case, use good smile design, properly prepare the case, and work with the lab to get the highest esthetic result. This is the only course that teaches dentists the following in a hands-on workshop: l How to design, treatment sequence, prepare and deliver (you will do all of these cases in the workshop): multi-unit direct composite veneer case with life-like translucency and polish HANDS-ON l l multi-unit porcelain veneer cases l all-ceramic crowns that match existing teeth l diastema closure and complex bonding with invisible margins & perfect match WORKSHOPS l anterior bridge using metal-free frameworks and life-like pontic/tissue adaptation l How to contour restorations and temporaries to look like natural teeth (taught with a specific exercise) l A system of Smile Design analysis that will make sure you cover all the bases and get the best results l How digital photography will get better results from the lab and communicate effectively with your patient l How to take excellent multi-unit impressions (without cord) that show every margin l How to do a mock-up and understand why it is the most essential tool for predictable esthetics l How to keep veneers from breaking, and how to use “the contact lens effect” l How to make exquisite TEMPORARIES with great margins and high esthetics l How to use a special matrix to speed up direct composite bonding and get better results l How to bond restorations with “ZERO” sensitivity and high bond strength l How to make a “flat bottom” pontic and why it gets a better result than an ovate pontic in most cases l How to find a good lab, and how to work with a technician/ceramist to produce superior esthetic results l How to pass AACD Accreditation and see cases like an “Examiner” l How to build good occlusion into your cosmetic cases, and how to treat bigger cases l Strategies for structuring fees in your community, in your practice This is an all-hands-on course taught in a very supportive and caring environment. ALL SKILL LEVELS WILL FEEL COMFORTABLE AND RECEIVE INDIVIDUAL ATTENTION. Each participant will work with specially designed typodonts that help dentists work through specific esthetic problems encountered in everyday general practice. Dentists will have laboratory work completed by the lab that they use and should expect to work hard during the course. Dr. Morley will teach methods for setting up and sequencing cases that he uses in his own successful esthetic private practice. Total hands-on experience and critique will be used to prepare participants for success in selecting, diagnosing and treating patients within their own practices. Skills learned in this course will allow participants to reach a higher level of performance in cosmetic dentistry whether or not they plan to present for AACD Accreditation. Faculty Dr. Jeff Morley, Private Practice, San Francisco, CA Dr. Jeff Morley is the co-founder of the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry (1984) and one of the best-known educators and clinicians in the fields of Cosmetic and Restorative Dentistry.

  9. 9. 909 Dental Ethics for a Changing Profession This course will provide a review of the concepts that have led to the development of dental ethics and the principles that are embodied in them. It will explore the ethical implications of a wide range of recent trends in dentistry and will provide the dentist with the tools to make ethical decisions regarding many aspects of dental practice. This course will address real-world situations by using case studies to help make practical, ethical decisions. Time will be available to discuss the participants’ specific problems or concerns. Topics to be covered... Presenter l Ethical marketing Gary Herman, DDS, Group Director, UCLA l Insurance billing - do’s and don’ts Dental Clinic and Instructor, Patient Management l Managed care - are HMOs ethical? l The impaired practitioner Date and Fee l Your own ethical questions for discussion March 13, Saturday at UCLA Dentistry 9:00 AM - 5:00 PM $198 Dentist or Auxiliary California Continuing Dental Education credits: 7 973 Enhance Your Clinical Practice & Productivity with Multimedia Content A Hands-on Workshop NEW SE Advancements in computer hardware and software make it easy to create clinical, multimedia content that enhances dental records as well as treatment plans presented in the office or UR as an on-line follow-up. A visually compelling treatment plan can have a positive impact on CO patient understanding, resulting in greater motivation, acceptance, and office productivity. The process of multimedia authoring can be simplified if you have the right equipment. An out-of-the-box iMac has everything needed to create, catalog, present and transmit multimedia content without an IT ex- pert on staff. Even one Macintosh computer in the office, is like having a “virtual dental associate” to unlock the benefits of multimedia content. Recent processor changes allow Macintosh and Windows environments to coexist on the same machine, to make the transition easier and more affordable. Course learning objectives This all-day, hands-on program will allow you to explore many facets of multimedia and understand how it would benefit your dental practice. You will learn how to record a video examination with iMovie, then edit and send it to your patientʼs e-mail before they leave the dental chair. You will also learn how to edit and organize clinical photographs and radiographs in iPhoto and transform them into a multimedia treatment plan. You experience how to use iTunes and an iPod or Apple TV to inform patients and reduce their anxiety during dental treatment. This entire process can be simplified and delegated to staff with the right tools. Even if you have never considered using multimedia before, this program will provide you with a solid foun- dation and a step by step approach to start enjoying the benefits immediately. Space is very limited to only 15 participants, so register early!

  11. 11. 956 Implants: Treatment planning conflicts and solutions 3rd Annual Kratochvil Prosthodontic Conference Over the years lessons have been learned in treatment planning patients with osseointegrated implants. Treatment of the partially edentulous patient initially led to failures and complications not very common in the edentulous patient. The difficulties were most likely due to lack of experience with the unique consider- ations of this patient population. Ultimately the problems associated with the partially edentulous patients were identified and recommendations were then made regarding the number of implants, position of im- plants, extraction of natural teeth, occlusal scheme, etc. These are just some of the topics that will be ad- dressed in the discussion of treatment planning relating to the support system design of implant restorations in the partially edentulous patient. Additionally, new treatment planning considerations regarding soft tissue preservation have recently been promoted which in many cases dispute some of the guidelines recommended by those emphasizing the support system design principles. This presentation will discuss both treatment planning arguments, one based on support system design and strength, and the other based on soft tissue preservation, and tries to find a solution for the two arguments. Restorative techniques for several different implants systems will be illustrated, including cement and screw-retained options. Faculty Date and Fees Steven G. Lewis, DMD March 20, Saturday at UCLA Dentistry Private practice limited to prosthodontics in 8:30 AM - 5:00 PM Cincinnati, Ohio. $198 Dr. Lewis received his BA and DMD degrees from California Continuing Dental Education Credits: 7 the University of Pennsylvania and later earned certificates in both Prosthodontics and Maxillofa- cial Prosthetics from UCLA.

  12. 12. 912 Evidence-Based Dentistry for the Clinician In dental practice, uncertainties in what, when, why, where, and how to service patient dental needs may challenge decision-making. While patients may present with complexities in their physical, mental, and so- cial well-being, as well as disease and infirmities, they want to be part of decision-making. Evidence-based dentistry allows for this shared decision-making in reaching optimal clinical decisions that meet individual patient needs and expectations. This course is designed to enhance the understanding of Evidence-Based Dental Practice and develops a connection between researcher, clinician, and patient. In preparation for un- derstanding these roles, dentists will participate in the assessment, evaluation, and skill to distinguish good vs. bad research for engaging in decision-making using best evidence. The outcome of this participation is training in development and use of clinical practice guidelines for practicing dentists. A case presentation will be used to apply the knowledge gained and used in the course. This course will: Instructors l Provide the necessary skills in assessment, Francesco Chiappelli, PhD, MA evaluation, and treatment planning utilizing the Professor, Division of Oral Biology and Medicine, Clinical Decision Tree of Oral Health by using a UCLA case study of an older patient with uncertain Janet Bauer, DDS, MS treatment options Associate Professor, Division of Restorative l Provide knowledge regarding the evidence- Dentistry; Director, June and Paul Ehrlich Endowed based dentistry concept Program in Geriatric Dentistry, UCLA l Provide the knowledge to establish quickly and reliably what constitutes “good” or “bad” research related to the case study Date and Fees March 20, Saturday at UCLA Dentistry l Provide elements by which dentists can 9:00 AM - 5:00 PM effectively distinguish between statistical and $ 198 Dentist clinical relevance California Continuing Dental Education Credits: 7 l Provide the skills necessary to develop clinical guidelines regarding any given case l Apply the clinical practice guidelines to shared decision-making Program Topics… l Aging and its impact on clinical decision-making l Physical assessment, evaluation, and function l Clinical Decision Tree of Oral Health l Development of the case study clinical question in acquiring best evidence l Understanding the clinician-translational researcher compact: From clinical to research synthesis l Process of developing best evidence using translational research skills l Developing the clinical practice guideline for the case study l Applying the case clinical practice guideline to shared decision-making l Decision analysis l Case presentation/Case study 10
  13. 13. 913 Aligning Your Practice to Provide Medical Triage, Health Maintenance NEW SE COUR & Medical Risk Management As dentists, because we see our patients on a more regular basis than physicians, we are in a unique po- sition to benefit our patients and our practices as important members of the Wellness Team. As potential first line responders we can catch life threatening and life altering problems in its early stages, because we largely deal with the ambulatory and seemingly healthy population on a regular and repeating basis. In our daily practice of dentistry, we are definitely involved in medical triage, health maintenance, and medical risk management. This course will provide screening systems you can use on Monday to save lives, enhance patient relations and build your wellness centered practice including reciprocal medical referrals. This course discusses both simple and high tech ways for your practice to upgrade screening services to your patients. Depending on your treatment interests, this can generate additional patient services in your practice increase physician referrals, and create a safer practice environment. You will be able to start Monday to extend quality of lives. Some of the triage implementation can be delegated to your staff, but the interpretation has to be yours. Program Topics. l Oral Cancer prescreening and evaluation before advanced lesions with poor outcomes appear. Techniques and equipment, types of biopsies, cytology, salivary testing and indications for each to promote best care. l Anti-hypertensives and anticoagulants - what you must know, and how best to incorporate them into daily practice.

  17. 17. 450 UCLA Implants A to Z - 2010 HANDS-ON Mastering the Basic Surgical Techniques and Prosthetic Applications WORKSHOPS of Osseointegrated Implants in the Successful Private Dental Practice Over the past 20 years UCLA has become a recognized leader in the field of osseointegrated implants. The experience gained from this pioneering clinical work is best shared with the private practice clinician over an extended period. A cohesive study club series is the ideal way to develop a useful understanding of this complex material. This program will provide participants with a thorough exposure to dental implants, enabling their successful utilization in the private restorative practice. This program is also well suited for surgeons who wish to improve their understanding of the prosthetic uses and limitations of dental implants. The development of predictable successful treatment plans will be emphasized. The formation of clinical skills for the intelligent implementation of implants versus conventional dentistry is paramount to this course. The curriculum will be broad and varied with an emphasis on the realities of private practice. This course will give the real pros and cons of implant dentistry for the general dentist, including basic surgical placement. There will be hands-on workshops in basic surgical techniques and prosthetic applications. Successful completion of this series will enable the participants to receive a certificate for the course, and allows each of them to integrate predictable implant dentistry into their own daily practice.

Oral appliances as an option for the management of mild to moderate sleep apnea are now validated by the publication of the standards of practice for them by the American Academy of Sleep Medicine in February of 2006. The dentist should be prepared to recognize the signs and symptoms of sleep disordered breathing as well as be prepared to make the necessary medical referral. Additionally, the dentist who has an interest in this exciting aspect of dentistry can make a significant contribution to the overall quality of life in these patients. This course is designed to increase the level of awareness of the practicing dentist as well as introduce them to the use of various oral appliances for the management of snoring and sleep apnea. This is truly dentistry’s role in the management of a medical condition. Topics that will be covered: Instructors l Introduction to Normal Sleep Dennis R. Bailey, DDS, a practicing dentist with l Introduction to Sleep Related Breathing Disorders over 25 years of experience in the field of sleep l Health Problems Related to Sleep Disorders with medicine and the use of oral appliances.

  21. 21. 480 UCLA Aesthetic Continuum 2010 HANDS-ON WORKSHOPS The primary goal of this Aesthetic Continuum will be to enhance the knowledge of all dental clinicians regard- less of their current skills and practice. At the completion of this three weekend course, the participants will have an in-depth understanding of the complex relationship between aesthetics and comprehensive care dentistry, and the necessary treatment skills. LIVE PATIENT Continuum Overview DEMOS The UCLA Aesthetic Continuum was founded in 1997 due to the rapid expansion and increased demand for aesthetic dentistry. This Continuum will give participants access to the newest innovations in aesthetic dentistry. Our renowned experts will lecture, hold group discussions, conduct hands-on laboratory ses- sions, and perform live patient demonstrations. Participants will be encouraged to present an accreditation case to the group. The Continuum was designed to flow sequentially from lecture to discussion, to hands-on participation. Each lecture is closely paired with the hands-on laboratory session. One full day per weekend is dedicated to comprehensive treatment planning of the aesthetic case. The insight and knowledge necessary to think through these complex, diagnostic cases produces a successful aesthetic outcome. This format will expose all participants, regardless of professional level of expertise, to some of the newest scientific concepts and developments in aesthetic treatment modalities. Ample time has been allotted for participants to interact with and ask questions of each instructor. By limit- ing the number of enrollees, participants will receive an intense level of individual attention and instruction. These discussion periods will allow each participant to ask questions and address concerns that are unique to their experiences and current cases. Our video demonstrations are of live patient treatment. Participants will be able to watch esthetic procedures via a live, real-time video feed. Watching these procedures step-by-step and being able to ask the treating clinician questions as he performs them on a patient, will assure a complete understanding and integration of these precise techniques. Our hands-on workshops on typodonts will build on these procedures. Do not let this unique opportunity pass you by this year. Every course since 1997 has sold out! Get the knowledge and experience you need to perform the most rewarding procedures in dentistry. The limited enrollment and the various formats include: lecture, follow-up discussion, hands-on laboratory participation and live patient demonstrations by our faculty, which allow immediate and interactive assimilation of this new information into your practice.
