Four Handed Dentistry for the Dental Team

ADA NSW Centre for Professional Development

Speaker: Melanie Lowe & Cathy Schafer Sydney, Australia

Format: Hands On, Lecture 3 May 2017

09:30 - 16:30
Duration: 5.5 hrs

Category
General Dentistry

Description
This course will provide training for the dental team to help them work together in a productive and efficient way. It will demonstrate how to lessen fatigue, stress levels, improve posture and to work together as a cohesive team. It will also improve the dental assistant anticipation of procedures.

Participants will be shown how to make minimum movements throughout the procedure to facilitate four handed dentistry. Emphasis will be placed on accomplishing a smooth flowing process, where each member of the dental team knows what is expected of them.

When conducted properly, fatigue is lessened because the procedures are carried out in a manner where the dentist is required to concentrate only on the dental treatment being carried out (not what is happening around them). Learn how body movements and eye focus can be kept to a minimum, and productivity and patient flow is increased as dental treatment is delivered in a specific routine manner.

Course Topics
- Outline of OHS in the dental practice
- Infection control
- Personal Protective Equipment (PPE)
- Benefits of four handed dentistry
- Transfer Zones (Positioning of the Dentist and Dental Assistant)
- Positioning of operators
- Transfer instruments technique
- Light position
- Triplex and suction position
- Rubber dam set up
- Full mouth rinse

Learning Objectives
This course will provide training for participants to work together in a productive and efficient way. They will learn to:-
- Decrease stress
- Lessen fatigue
- Increase productivity
- Provides patient comfort
- Actively involve team members
- To pass instruments correctly
- The Four Handed technique between Dentist and Dental Assistant
- The use of Suction and Triplex
- Full mouth rinse

Mastering Difficult Interactions

Dental Protection

Speaker: Dexter BamberyChristchurch

Format: Lecture 3 May 2017

18:00 - 21:00
Duration: 2.83 hrs

Category
Patient Management

Description
Difficult interactions are a part of professional practice – not just with patients but also within the dental team. These interactions are often a significant cause of stress for healthcare professionals. Without training and skills many professionals either surrender to an aggressive approach or find it difficult to communicate their point of view for fear of escalating conflict. This leads to feeling devalued and unprofessional.

The Mastering Difficult Interactions workshop provides a solution-focused approach to enhancing your effectiveness and ease when dealing with difficult interactions. The skills taught in this three-hour workshop concentrate on difficult interactions with patients but the techniques learnt will be valuable in any difficult interaction.

By attending this workshop you will:
• Enhance your skills in managing difficult situations
• Understand the choices available to you when faced with a difficult interaction
• Learn techniques to minimise conflict and deal with challenging scenarios, such as aggressive or upset patients
• Build the skills to effectively “diagnose” the problem
• Learn personal “survival” skills to reduce stress
• Improve the clinical outcomes of these complex situations.

Mastering Adverse Outcomes

Dental Protection

Speaker: Dexter BamberyDunedin

Format: Lecture 4 May 2017

18:00 - 21:00
Duration: 2.83 hrs

Category
Patient Management

Description
Patients can be disappointed with the outcomes of their treatments for many reasons, and research shows that how you communicate with a patient after something has gone wrong is one of the key factors in deciding if a patient will make a complaint. Yet most dentists receive little or no formal training in how to communicate in what can be a difficult and stressful situation.
The "Mastering Adverse Outcomes" workshop is designed to fill this gap. This three-hour interactive workshop gives you powerful and proven communication techniques to deal with patients after something has gone wrong - techniques that can reduce your exposure to risk of complaints or disciplinary action.
By attending this workshop you will:
* increase your knowledge of the research related to adverse outcomes
* enhance your skills to communicate with patients when something has gone wrong
* reduce your risk of complaints or disciplinary action
* increase your understanding of ethical, regulatory, legal and professional obligations following and adverse outcome including duty of disclosure
* understand the legal implications of expressing regret
* understand the impact of waiving or reducing patient fees when something has gone wrong
* learn practical models for communicating with patients when something has gone wrong, including the six step A.S.S.I.S.T approach.

Conservative 3D Canal Preparation and Disinfection

Ivoclar Vivadent

Speaker: Dr Hani NaoumWellington

Format: Hands On, Lecture 5 May 2017

08:30 - 16:30
Duration: 6 hrs

Category
Endodontics

Description
Course Description
The root canal system is highly complex, making adequate cleaning during root canal treatment
challenging. Most files create round preparations, limiting their potential to scrape the walls of oval shaped canals, fins, communications and isthmuses.

Several studies using micro CT technologies demonstrated that round files touch only a small
portion of the canal walls. Because of these limitations, many adjunctive techniques have
been used to compensate for these shortcomings, including; higher concentrations of NaOCl and
EDTA, sonic or ultrasonic activation of the irrigants, or using laser technology.

Recent developments in file design utilising the NiTi alloy characteristics has allowed us to produce cleaner canals and preserve the tooth structure. The new micro computed tomographic studies have shown significant effectiveness with the newer files design.

Learning Objectives:
- Understand the biological requirements for successful room canal treatment
- Determine the appropriate working length for cal cleaning
- Understand the role of mechanical instrumentation in controlling intracanal infection and facilitate the effects of the irrigation solutions
- Understand the technological challenges and possibilities in endodontic instruments to predictably remove intracanal infection
- Present the physical and clinical characteristics of the new XP-endo files
- Demonstrate the clinical use of these files

Speaker
Dr Hani Naoum
Dr Hani Naoum BDS, MDS graduated with Bachelor of Dental Surgery from the University of Baghdad in 1994. After several years of general dental practice in New Zealand and internationally, he completed a Master of Dental Surgery in Endodontics from the University of Otago in 2001.

Dr Naoum enjoys all aspects of Endodontics and has a special interest in biomechanical cleaning and shaping of the root canal space, as well as treating dental trauma and tooth resorption.

Dr Naoum has lectured both nationally and internationally and authored various scientific research and review papers. Dr Naoum is a committee member of the NZ Society of Endodontics, Auckland and New Zealand Dental Associations, American Association of Endodontists, International Association of Dental Traumatology, Australia and New Zealand Academy of Endodontists, and Australasian Society of Implant Dentistry.

Duration: 2.83 hrs

Category
Patient Management

Description
Difficult interactions are a part of professional practice – not just with patients but also within the dental team. These interactions are often a significant cause of stress for healthcare professionals. Without training and skills many professionals either surrender to an aggressive approach or find it difficult to communicate their point of view for fear of escalating conflict. This leads to feeling devalued and unprofessional.

The Mastering Difficult Interactions workshop provides a solution-focused approach to enhancing your effectiveness and ease when dealing with difficult interactions. The skills taught in this three-hour workshop concentrate on difficult interactions with patients but the techniques learnt will be valuable in any difficult interaction.

By attending this workshop you will:
• Enhance your skills in managing difficult situations
• Understand the choices available to you when faced with a difficult interaction
• Learn techniques to minimise conflict and deal with challenging scenarios, such as aggressive or upset patients
• Build the skills to effectively “diagnose” the problem
• Learn personal “survival” skills to reduce stress
• Improve the clinical outcomes of these complex situations.

Category
Patient Management

Description
Patients can be disappointed with the outcomes of their treatments for many reasons, and research shows that how you communicate with a patient after something has gone wrong is one of the key factors in deciding if a patient will make a complaint. Yet most dentists receive little or no formal training in how to communicate in what can be a difficult and stressful situation.
The "Mastering Adverse Outcomes" workshop is designed to fill this gap. This three-hour interactive workshop gives you powerful and proven communication techniques to deal with patients after something has gone wrong - techniques that can reduce your exposure to risk of complaints or disciplinary action.
By attending this workshop you will:
* increase your knowledge of the research related to adverse outcomes
* enhance your skills to communicate with patients when something has gone wrong
* reduce your risk of complaints or disciplinary action
* increase your understanding of ethical, regulatory, legal and professional obligations following and adverse outcome including duty of disclosure
* understand the legal implications of expressing regret
* understand the impact of waiving or reducing patient fees when something has gone wrong
* learn practical models for communicating with patients when something has gone wrong, including the six step A.S.S.I.S.T approach.

Simple and Reliable Proceedures in Modern Restorative Dentistry

Aesthetics in dentistry today is an all-encompassing multidisciplinary treatment process that dentists provide for patients. The array of treatment options is wide and each clinical procedure varies depending on many factors including health status of patient, the patient's wishes, and the clinicians overall knowledge about the materials being used and its relevant application techniques. While some cases may have obvious solutions, many can leave us indecisive on the best treatment options. Issues facing dentists and patients daily in this whole new and increasingly demanding world of modern dentistry will be discussed. Topics will include the critical importance of thorough treatment planning, the clinical do’s and don’ts and the many and exciting advances in material science. This information is vital in equipping both practitioners and patients to make important informed decisions. One of the most common restorations in dentistry – the single crown, will be analyzed in detail, from the simplest to the most complex – treatment planning options as well as the periodontal, anatomical, functional and aesthetic factors involved to achieve successful clinical outcomes and beautiful, functional smiles with the ultimate goal - to achieve a symbiosis between science and the art of Restorative Dentistry! The main objective of these lectures is to show evidence-based requirements and conceptual bases that should be followed such as tooth preparation design and tooth surface topography, core build -ups, provisional restorations, impression materials and techniques, cements and adhesive cementation as well as other steps throughout treatment to optimize and efficiently achieve results in modern restorative and implant dentistry.

Peri-Cementitis – Does this lead to Peri-Implantitis? Are there issues with the tissues?

Around an implant, cement has been shown to attract and harbour bacteria, producing a reservoir for bacteria-induced inflammation. Implants with excess cement are more likely to be affected by tissue destruction.

Peri-Cementitis – Does this lead to Peri-Implantitis? Are there issues with the tissues?

Speaker: Mary MowbrayChristchurch

Format: Lecture12 May 2017

11:00 - 12:00
Duration: 1 hrs

Category
Periodontics

Description
Around an implant, cement has been shown to attract and harbour bacteria, producing a reservoir for bacteria-induced inflammation. Implants with excess cement are more likely to be affected by tissue destruction.

Both peri-implant mucositis and peri-implantitis can be associated with excess cement left under the gingival margins after cementation of the final prosthesis. This type of tissue destruction, know as peri-cementitis, can be avoided with correct attention to detail.

If diagnosed and treated early, this type of disease can be reversible when infiltration is limited to the soft tissue. However, if left untreated, the bacteria associated with the cement can lead to a progressive, irreversible inflammatory response, which can lead to bone loss, increasing both the difficulty in treatment and lead to possible loss of the dental implant. It is therefore important to know the etiology, prevention, and treatment of cement-induced tissue destruction to facilitate early intervention.

If cement extrusion does occur, it is important to recognise the signs and symptoms triggered by tissue response along with therapeutic treatment. Early detection and treatment can prevent more involved therapies and prevent implant loss.

One Foot in the Door - Digital Workflow of CAD/CAM integrated Dental Laboratory

Dental Expo

Speaker: Pitsnu (Ike) IntoratatChristchurch

Format: Lecture12 May 2017

15:00 - 16:00
Duration: 1 hrs

Category
Dental Technology

Description
For many years, CAD/CAM dental restorations have been considered “fresh” and on the cutting edge of treatment technology. In the recent years, there have been strong new interests in the digital procedure, especially with the continuous software development and new ceramic materials in the market. CAD/CAM technology is not only here to stay—it will be the standard in dentistry in the very near future.

Virtual planning and designing of dental prosthesis has become an indispensable factor in modern dentistry and dental technology. It is now the norm for any dental technician to know how to create a full-contour ceramic crown using a mouse and keyboard just as well as an electric wax knife and a kolinsky brush. The usage of new technology results in greater accuracy, speed and efficiency leading to improvement in patient care.

This lecture provides an overview of the operational components and methodology used with CAD/CAM systems. In the description of the practical application of the new CAD/CAM system, the possibilities and limits of the present-day techniques and future outlook are illustrated. In this context, we will also discuss the necessity and the role of traditional dental technician knowledge in combination with technology.

Objectives:
• To understand the protocol and workflow needed to consistently deliver functional successful restorations
• overview of current imaging technologies and The Digital Dental Workflow
• To understand the technicians role in manipulating converged CAD data
• Explore possibilities in the modernization of the prosthodontic clinic-laboratory interface

Description
Dental caries is still the most common disease as oral health practitioners we deal with on a day-to-day basis. There have been changes in how we detect, diagnose and manage caries today. This presentation will highlight what we are currently clinically teaching at the Faculty, and the evidence for some of the new and not so new approaches. There is still much debate in this field, and I will share some of the challenges we face in deciding when to intervene operatively, the use of caries dye, how much caries removal is enough and what else can we do with interproximal lesions and why evidence is not the only factor we as clinicians consider in managing carious lesions.

Esthetics and Reliability of All-Ceramic Restorations in our daily Practice

This lecture will provide participants with an overview of the permanently increasing variety of all-ceramic material systems, their features and indications

Esthetics and Relaiability of All-Ceramic Restorations in our daily Practice

Speaker: Dr Michael DieterChristchurch

Format: Lecture12 May 2017

17:00 - 18:00
Duration: 1 hrs

Category
Dental Education, Restorative Dentistry

Description
A fundamental principle in replacing missing tooth structure or missing teeth is the restoration of function and esthetics at minimal biological cost. The introduction of new all-ceramic materials and adhesive cementation techniques have facilitated innovative, conservative preparation designs for single tooth and Fixed Partial Denture (FPD) restorations. The reliable bond to enamel achieved with the adhesive technique has greatly impacted preparation design resulting in significant preservation of tooth structure.

The combination of highly translucent all-ceramics and esthetic resin composite cements has facilitated the clinical use of the adhesive technique and launched a whole new era of esthetic restorative treatment options like ultra-thin veneers, table tops, resin bonded FPDs, and inlay-retained FPDs.

Today, the clinician can choose from very different ceramic materials such as Silicate glass ceramics, Lithium-Di-Silicate ceramics, and Polycrystalline materials like Zirconium Dioxide. However, in terms of strength and esthetics there are significant differences that need to be considered for their clinical application.

This lecture will provide participants with an overview on the permanently increasing variety of all-ceramic material systems, their features & indications. The clinician will take home practical information on the step-by-step procedures for optimal tooth preparation designs and the adhesive cementation technique for all-ceramic restorations – all illustrated with clinical cases.

The Evolution of the Digital Workflow in the Dental Practice

Dental Expo

Speaker: Dr Michael DieterChristchurch

Format: Lecture13 May 2017

09:00 - 10:00
Duration: 1 hrs

Category
Dental Education, Practice Management

Description
Nowadays our patients are demanding more esthetic, durable and minimally-invasive all-ceramic restorations. There is also a strong desire for a one-visit treatment without the need of a temporary restoration. The combination of digitally manufactured all-ceramic restorations using the latest technologies and the adhesive cementation technique facilitate long lasting restorations resulting in significant preservation of tooth structure and excellent esthetics meeting the highest patient demands. However, small mistakes in the various clinical steps of the treatment sequence and the manufacturing process can compromise the clinical long- term success of our digitally produced restorations.

Dr. Michael Dieter will introduce a digital chairside concept that helps the clinician to make esthetic dentistry more predictable and more profitable in the dental practice. Special emphasis will devoted to the following elements of the clinical treatment sequence:
 Which indications can be covered chairside? Where are the limits?
 Ideal tooth preparation and isolation techniques
 Predictable data acquisition (Scan)
 Favorable restoration designs (CAD)
 Manufacturing the restoration (CAM)
 Optimizing the esthetic outcome of the restoration after milling

Duration: 1 hrs

Category
Restorative Dentistry

Description
Adhesive dentistry is an essential part of contemporary dentistry. However, the ability to form a durable and predictable bond to dentine still remains a challenge. Dentine bonding agents have continued to evolve alongside our understanding of the barriers to forming a long-lasting bond to dentine. There are now newer bonding agents available on the market that aim to not only simplify the adhesion process, but at the same time claim to form a superior bond compared to the earlier generations of bonding agents. How do these new bonds compare? Are they really better? In this lecture, Chee will present a brief overview of the science behind dentine bonding, as well as examine in closer detail the latest generation of “universal” bonding agents. He will also discuss common clinical scenarios and how to make the most of our dentine bonding agents.

The Digital Approach to restoring Anterior Esthetics

From Leucite-reinforced Felspathic porcelain to Translucent Zirconia: the Digital approach to restoring Anterior Esthetics

The Digital Approach to restoring Anterior Esthetics

Speaker: Ike IntoratatChristchurch

Format: Lecture13 May 2017

15:00 - 16:00
Duration: 1 hrs

Category
Dental Technology, Restorative Dentistry

Description
The clinical performance of all ceramic materials depends on many factors. To achieve long-term clinical success, numerous clinical and material-related parameters must be considered.

All-ceramic restorations provide better esthetic and biocompatibility than metal ceramics. However, many early all-ceramic systems were overwhelmed by relatively low fracture strengths and uncertain long-term clinical performance. Current high-strength ceramic materials provide fracture strength and fracture toughness up to ten times higher than that of the traditional ceramic materials.

This presentation provides an overview of various types of dental ceramics available for the CAD/CAM approach to restoring anterior esthetic, as well as the material selection criteria. Finishing procedures like layering, partial layering and external staining techniques, along with surface texture control are also discussed in detail.

Objectives:
understand the parameters of case planning in full ceramic treatment concepts
understand the principles of material selection in relation to the oral conditions
realise the optical developments in monolithic lithium disilicate and zirconia
observe the daily protocol of CAD/CAM integrated laboratory
understand the effects created by utilising IPS e.max Ceram System with Ivocolor

Speaker

He is also a regular guest lecturer at various Universities amongst these countries.
Ike graduated from the University of Otago, New Zealand. He received his Bachelor of Science degree in Human Anatomy and Structural Biology form the School of Medicine, before his fascination in the field of Dentistry. In 2003 he graduated with Distinction, a Bachelor Degree in Dental Technology from the School of Dentistry. Since then, he became a New Zealand Registered Dental Technician, and was selected to be a Board Member of the New Zealand Dental Council. He was profoundly involved in the production side of removable prostheses for a few years before he decided to persue his passion in the fixed prosthodontics discipline.
Currently he is working closely with a small numbe of clinical Key Opinion Leaders on study cases in Implantology, Restorative and Cosmetic Dentistry.

Description
Hearing loss effects tens of millions of people each year, and if considered as a disability would rank as the highest in the world.

Noise-induced hearing loss is the second most prevalent occupational hazard and third most chronic health condition worldwide, and thousands of dentists develop permanent irreversible damage each year without ever knowing due to our chronic daily exposure to a high frequency and decibel environment.

This course will examine the factors and statistics behind why noise-induced hearing loss will have a significant and detrimental impact on your career and life beyond dentistry.

Literature and research from the past four decades will highlight the severity of the issue in the dental environment and to overall systemic health.

Finally, a novel technology will be introduced as a preventative solution to hearing loss without compromising communication with patients and staff.
Highlighted by major publications and an extensive research study by the American Dental Association, this technology will serve as the next step in the evolution of protective equipment in the dental environment.

Learning Objectives:
- Understand how noise-induced hearing loss is directly affecting your dental career and compromising your overall health
- Learn how and why you are at risk and what you can do to prevent it before it’s too late
- Understand the latest technologies and preventative measures you can incorporate in your practice for you, your staff, and even your patients
- Review extensive dental and medical literature along with recent publications by the ADA highlighting preventative measures
- Learn about a novel technology custom made for the dental environment that provides a solution to noise-induced hearing loss

Speaker: NZSFOWellington

Format: Hands On, Lecture25 May 2017

08:30 - 17:00
Duration: 7.5 hrs

Category
Forensic Dentistry

Description
There has been strong demand for case simulation courses again especially as case numbers remain low in many areas. This pre-conference course will be based along those lines but will also include a dental age estimation workshop.

The aim of the course is to use the processes the NZSFO has in place to provide odontology services in relation to post mortem identification for NZ Coronial services (via NZ police in most cases). The course is limited to maximum 20 participants and is open to all NZSFO members. There are limited places for both dentists and auxiliary personnel.

Day Course Outline

Age estimation is often an important part of the identification process. This workshop will include an overview of the methods available and a hands on component related to the work of Cameriere.

The workshop will also include hands on simulation identification cases. Work will be in groups undertaking AM, PM and reconciliation phases and presentation of results to the group.

Participants should bring a laptop computer and loupes if available.

Principles of Restorative Implant Dentistry: Modular Implant Course for Dental Practitoners

Melbourne Dental School, The University of Melbourne

Speaker: Multiplemelbourne victoria australia

Format: Hands On, Lecture25 May - 5 Oct 2017

09:00 - 17:00
Duration: 48 hrs

Category
Dental Education, Dental Implants, Prosthodontics, Restorative Dentistry

Description
Principles of Implant Dentistry

This course, which is based on an internationally recognized curriculum, witll be presented in a modular fashion offered throughout the year. Implant education for both the surgical and restorative phases of treatment will be carried out in a generic manner, that is, to discuss issues central to implant dentistry rather than over-emphasising system-specific issues.

Speakers have been invited with a wide range of implant experiences and system uses. The importance of the restorative dentist abd a restoratively driven treatment plan in dental implant therapy is emphasised. Each of the modules will provide core information, however during later stages of the course issues inherent to four major implant systems will be discussed at length. This course has been organised to provide information relevant to more experienced practitioners and also is to encompass issues related to maintenance and dealing with implant dentistry complications.

Central to this course will be the emphasis on appropriate treatment planning to ensure clinical success in this ever expanding field. At the conclusion of the course, successful completion of an open-book on-line assessment will fulfil the requirements for award of the ITI Certificate in Implant Dentistry.

Duration: 14 hrs

Category
Dental Education, Dental Materials, Patient Management, Practice Management

Description
The one-day 'PrimeSpeak©' Communications Workshop for Dentists will eliminate practice stress using this ethical, gentle, step-by-step system. This programme is being used by Australia's leading practitioners who report significant increases in hourly rate and new patient referrals, in a low stress environment.

Learn the psychological triggers that cause patients to choose optimum treatment; refer their friends and want you to always be their dentist. Understand the counter-intuitive paradigm shift that underlies PrimeSpeak©.

Gain a perspective into this world of psychological influencing forces and learn how to drive them, for mutual benefit. Discover new techniques that are the antithesis of traditional sales methods.


Speaker
Michael Sernik
Dr Michael Sernik is a dentist who has combined his extensive clinical experience with a diverse corporate training background to develop a novel approach to dental practice development. After 23 years of clinical dentistry in Australia he moved into the world of corporate training and spent 10 years working throughout USA, Canada, UK, and Japan. He is a partner in: Prime Practice; DJS and PrimeSpeak.

Dr Sernik is the creator of the PrimeSpeak Seminars teaching advanced communications skills to dentists. The modern technically accomplished dentist, in fulfilling his role as a patient advocate, has an obligation to direct the patient to the most appropriate therapies. There is often a gap between having clinical skills and utilising them, which can be bridged with communication skills. The PrimeSpeak training begins with a 3 day workshop and is essential for any dentist wishing to build a practice that consistently delivers comprehensive treatment. This step by step system uses gentle techniques that are the antithesis of traditional sales training. The patient will never feel any pressure from the dentist.

- A back to basics look at the micro-organisms that make Infection Control Necessary.
- Standard precautions and associated key updates for successful sterilisation outcomes.
- Policy and Procedures manuals - how, why and the importance of team implementation.
- Hand Hygiene update - hand washing and ABHR use.
- Personal Hygiene and Personal Protective Equipment requirements and use.
- Reprocessing and handling of used instruments (reusable medical device).
- Pre-cleaning for successful sterilisation - the critical step.
- Disinfection vs. detergency.
- Surface management protocols - clinical contact surfaces and general environment.
- Instrument reprocessing - the overall process.
- Sterilisation - packaging, loading, monitoring requirements and recording the process.
- Validation - of both equipment, and the overall sterilisation process.

Learning Objectives:
- Discuss the basic principles of sterilisation and disinfection, including the importance of cleaning each/any item before a process is used.
- Understand and practically apply Standard Precautions.
- Highlight methods of sterilisation.
- Highlight key principles for special considerations for disinfection and sterilisation issues, such as dental unit water lines and evacuation systems.
- Be able to relate the NZDA Code of Practice for Infection Prevention and Control, and Dental Council Practice Standard in line with AS/NZ4815:2006 and/or AS/NZS4187:2014 within and around the dental clinic/environment.

Planning Essentials

ADA NSW Centre for Professional Development

Speaker: Dr Wayne ShersonSydney, Australia

Format: Hands On 7 Jun 2017

09:00 - 16:00
Duration: 6 hrs

Category
General Dentistry, Patient Management

Description
Treatment planning plays an essential role in gaining valid informed consent. It is a skill that challenges many dentists in private practice.

by posing difficulties with both clinical and administrative case management. Too often the time constraints of a busy practice rather than case needs determine how much (or little) treatment planning is done.

This course is aimed at general dentists wanting to improve their case management skills of moderately complex cases by developing and implementing a consistent treatment planning processes. Participants will be guided through an easily implemented, structured process to develop and present treatment plans for their patients. On completion they will have a “take home” framework along with supporting resources to efficiently treatment plan in everyday practice.

Topics include
- The use of template documents, case documentation and digital data management
- Appropriate diagnostic records, analysis and re-presentation of radiographic and photographic records
- Formulation of provisional treatment plans covering all available treatment options
- Formulation of the definitive treatment plan
- Appropriate use of supporting resources
- Incorporating treatment timelines into treatment plans
- Multidisciplinary case management with appropriate specialist referral
- Informed consent

Duration: 14 hrs

Category
Dental Education, Dental Materials, Patient Management, Practice Management

Description
After this workshop the dental team will have a clear understanding of advanced communication skills when confronting difficult situations between team members and patients, in order to create an exceptional patient experience.

The Team Managed Practice
After this module, the dental team will understand the differences between being just a group of people to being a cohesive team with a clear code of cooperation where all team members have had the opportunity to give input to standards for working together to create an exceptional patient experience.
They will also have a clear understanding of the importance of Emotional Intelligence (EQ Goldman) for the team and how this will enhance team work.

Relationship Management
On completion of this module, team members will understand and being able to practice the four windows of the JoHari Window (ref; Joseph Luft and Harry Ingram’s model of disclosure and feedback).
The model covers the four windows of feedback and disclosure and lets the team members understand the importance of having an open environment where all team members create a cohesive and consistent team that are happy to give each other both positive and constructive feedback to better serve their patients.

Managing self and others
By using Peter Senge’s Ladder of inference (ref The Fifth Discipline) and Retracing your path to action (Ref Crucial Conversations – Joseph Grenny) the team members will get practical tools to have assertive conversations with patients and other team members by understanding the tool of Transactional Analysis (ref; Dr. Eric Berne) and how to use these to achieve better outcomes for both patients and team members. The tools will be used for real life examples of patient interactions and team interactions in skills practice.

08:30 - 17:00
Duration: 7 hrs

Category
Restorative Dentistry

Description
KEEPING IT SMART AND SIMPLE.
Dentists are facing increasing clinical challenges for the ongoing management of structurally compromised teeth. This seminar is focused on creating practical and straight forward direct restorative solutions using new and existing technologies that will improve your clinical ability, efficiency and personal satisfaction as you integrate these concepts into your practice.

TOPICS
- Current Concepts of Clinical Care
- Simple yet effective protocols to manage caries and periodontal disease that attracts new patients and increases demand for care
- Occlusion, what’s important for the restorative dentist?
- Tooth saving cavity designs
- Pharmacological preservation of carious dentine
- Bonding composite and GIC to tooth structure
- Bonding GIC to Composite, Composite and GIC to amalgam
- Criteria for using composite resins and glass ionomers
- Why cocuring is the best, simplest and fastest technique for large restorations
- Fibre reinforcing, choices, indications and techniques
- Managing a restoration with sub gingival margins
- Simple overlay technique for protecting a compromised cusp
- Eliminating cervical sensitivity
- Stronger atraumatic alternative to pins
- How to place a matrix on a tooth when cusps are missing
- Getting a predictable biological contact area
- Applying an occlusal matrix to facilitate contouring for most restorations
- Carving techniques for an anatomical and functional occlusion.
- Saving a decoronated root filled tooth
- Enhancing endodontic predictability
- Closing a diastema without the “black triangle”
- Masking super and sub gingival staining on an anterior tooth
- A fast and predictable indirect onlay technique to manage high occlusal loads that may fracture composite restorations


Step by step restorative techniques from small occlusal cavities to complex coronal restorations with multiple missing cusps. Restorative protocols based upon a classification system determined by the structural integrity
and surface of the tooth to be restored.


Challenges of Contemporary Dentistry
- Direct Single Anterior Crown: Fast and predictable techniques for construction, shade matching and contouring that will merge the crown invisibly into a patient’s smile.
- Splinting: fast and predictable fibre techniques combined with effective home care that enables patients to keep their teeth well beyond their predicted demise.
- Bleaching: A new bleaching system using a universal preformed tray that closely adapts to most arch forms, eliminating the need for impressions and models so that dentists can offer their patients an “on the spot” take home bleach.
- Painless peadodontics: Managing hypomineralization and caries in primary teeth without local anaesthetic and minimal mechanical preparation
- Three smart bridge techniques offering patients alternatives to implants that can be applied to suit the clinical conditions and a clinicians restorative preferences

1. Direct Fibre Reinforced Resin Bridges: New fibres and a new technique that enables replacement of an aesthetic plaque resistant pontic within a half hour appointment
2. Indirect Direct Resin Bridge: Fabricating an indirect framework for maximum strength and a the versatility of a direct pontic that can be adapted into a patients smile
3. Indirect Internally Retained Bridge: Minimal tooth preparation, fast to prepare, simple to insert with a high degree of predictability.

- Policy and Procedures manuals - how, why and the importance of team implementation.
- Hand Hygiene update - hand washing and ABHR use.
- Personal Hygiene and Personal Protective Equipment requirements and use.
- Reprocessing and handling of used instruments (reusable medical device).
- Pre-cleaning for successful sterilisation - the critical step.
- Disinfection vs. detergency.
- Surface management protocols - clinical contact surfaces and general environment.
- Instrument reprocessing - the overall process.
- Sterilisation - packaging, loading, monitoring requirements and recording the process.
- Validation - of both equipment, and the overall sterilisation process.

Learning Objectives:
- Discuss the basic principles of sterilisation and disinfection, including the importance of cleaning each/any item before a process is used.
- Understand and practically apply Standard Precautions.
- Highlight methods of sterilisation.
- Highlight key principles for special considerations for disinfection and sterilisation issues, such as dental unit water lines and evacuation systems.
- Be able to relate the NZDA Code of Practice for Infection Prevention and Control, and Dental Council Practice Standard in line with AS/NZ4815:2006 and/or AS/NZS4187:2014 within and around the dental clinic/environment.

Format: Lecture10 Jun 2017

08:30 - 17:00
Duration: 7 hrs

Category
Restorative Dentistry

Description
KEEPING IT SMART AND SIMPLE.
Dentists are facing increasing clinical challenges for the ongoing management of structurally compromised teeth. This seminar is focused on creating practical and straight forward direct restorative solutions using new and existing technologies that will improve your clinical ability, efficiency and personal satisfaction as you integrate these concepts into your practice.

TOPICS
- Current Concepts of Clinical Care
- Simple yet effective protocols to manage caries and periodontal disease that attracts new patients and increases demand for care
- Occlusion, what’s important for the restorative dentist?
- Tooth saving cavity designs
- Pharmacological preservation of carious dentine
- Bonding composite and GIC to tooth structure
- Bonding GIC to Composite, Composite and GIC to amalgam
- Criteria for using composite resins and glass ionomers
- Why cocuring is the best, simplest and fastest technique for large restorations
- Fibre reinforcing, choices, indications and techniques
- Managing a restoration with sub gingival margins
- Simple overlay technique for protecting a compromised cusp
- Eliminating cervical sensitivity
- Stronger atraumatic alternative to pins
- How to place a matrix on a tooth when cusps are missing
- Getting a predictable biological contact area
- Applying an occlusal matrix to facilitate contouring for most restorations
- Carving techniques for an anatomical and functional occlusion.
- Saving a decoronated root filled tooth
- Enhancing endodontic predictability
- Closing a diastema without the “black triangle”
- Masking super and sub gingival staining on an anterior tooth
- A fast and predictable indirect onlay technique to manage high occlusal loads that may fracture composite restorations


Step by step restorative techniques from small occlusal cavities to complex coronal restorations with multiple missing cusps. Restorative protocols based upon a classification system determined by the structural integrity
and surface of the tooth to be restored.


Challenges of Contemporary Dentistry
- Direct Single Anterior Crown: Fast and predictable techniques for construction, shade matching and contouring that will merge the crown invisibly into a patient’s smile.
- Splinting: fast and predictable fibre techniques combined with effective home care that enables patients to keep their teeth well beyond their predicted demise.
- Bleaching: A new bleaching system using a universal preformed tray that closely adapts to most arch forms, eliminating the need for impressions and models so that dentists can offer their patients an “on the spot” take home bleach.
- Painless peadodontics: Managing hypomineralization and caries in primary teeth without local anaesthetic and minimal mechanical preparation
- Three smart bridge techniques offering patients alternatives to implants that can be applied to suit the clinical conditions and a clinicians restorative preferences

1. Direct Fibre Reinforced Resin Bridges: New fibres and a new technique that enables replacement of an aesthetic plaque resistant pontic within a half hour appointment
2. Indirect Direct Resin Bridge: Fabricating an indirect framework for maximum strength and a the versatility of a direct pontic that can be adapted into a patients smile
3. Indirect Internally Retained Bridge: Minimal tooth preparation, fast to prepare, simple to insert with a high degree of predictability.

Sterilisation and disinfection are important for both personnel safety and patient safety. All processes should be based on a philosophy of risk management and quality assurance. The philosophy of how an item is used, stored, contaminated and reused or disposed determines the optimal method of sterilisation and/or disinfection.

The latest Australian and New Zealand standards (AS/NZS4815) stipulate that dental practices need to provide appropriate education and training for staff responsible for instruments.

This workshop will cover:
- Office Based Practice, the Standards and you - the technicalities of AS/NZ4815:2006 and AS/NZS 4187:2014.
- A back to basics look at the micro-organisms that make Infection Control Necessary.
- Standard precautions and associated key updates for successful sterilisation outcomes.
- Policy and Procedures manuals - how, why and the importance of team implementation.
- Hand Hygiene update - hand washing and ABHR use.
- Personal Hygiene and Personal Protective Equipment requirements and use.
- Reprocessing and handling of used instruments (reusable medical device).
- Pre-cleaning for successful sterilisation - the critical step.
- Disinfection vs. detergency.
- Surface management protocols - clinical contact surfaces and general environment.
- Instrument reprocessing - the overall process.
- Sterilisation - packaging, loading, monitoring requirements and recording the process.
- Validation - of both equipment, and the overall sterilisation process.

Learning Objectives:
- Discuss the basic principles of sterilisation and disinfection, including the importance of cleaning each/any item before a process is used.
- Understand and practically apply Standard Precautions.
- Highlight methods of sterilisation.
- Highlight key principles for special considerations for disinfection and sterilisation issues, such as dental unit water lines and evacuation systems.
- Be able to relate the NZDA Code of Practice for Infection Prevention and Control, and Dental Council Practice Standard in line with AS/NZ4815:2006 and/or AS/NZS4187:2014 within and around the dental clinic/environment.

The Paediatric Dentition

ADA NSW Centre for Professional Development

Format: Hands On, Lecture14 Jun 2017

09:00 - 16:30
Duration: 6.5 hrs

Category
General Dentistry, Paedodontics, Restorative Dentistry

Description
Despite advances in preventive dentistry, dental caries is increasing in children. In addition, the prevalence of developmental defects of tooth structure (enamel hypomineralisation and hypoplasia) in young children is increasing in general dental practice. Management of the pulpally involved or severely compromised primary tooth poses considerable challenges for clinicians providing care of the child patient. Vital pulp therapy and stainless steel crowns are proven, dependable and efficient treatment options in the primary dentition as a means of maintaining the tooth and space for the permanent successor, whilst minimising the need for re-treatment. Case selection through appropriate diagnosis is essential to the long-term success of the procedures. In some cases, it may be appropriate to extract a primary tooth. We will discuss the reasons it may be preferable to extract a tooth and the options for space management. These options will include practical demonstrations and hands-on experience with the construction of a chairside space maintainer.

Stainless steel crowns may be indicated in permanent molars when there has been enamel hypomineralisation, significant breakdown of the crown and pulpal sensitivity. The procedure is more complex than for primary crowns but the results are again reliable and predictable. Restoration with stainless steel crowns can provide an effective interim restoration with a view to considering planned extractions at the appropriate developmental stage.


Topics include
- Introduction to dental caries and development defects of dentition in children treatment planning for the paediatric dentition. Vital Pulp therapy for primary and immature permanent molars
- Stainless steel crowns for primary and permanent molars. The concept of “minimal preparation” stainless steel crown techniques
- Chairside construction of space maintainers
- Behaviour management options for these procedures, including local anaesthesia techniques and placement of rubber dam
These procedures will be discussed in detail and participants will have the opportunity to complete the procedures on replica teeth.

Completion of this course will give attendees the confidence to provide predictable restorative options for young patients in a variety of settings.

The Basics of Clinical Photography

ADA NSW Centre for Professional Development

Speaker: Dr Peter SheridanSydney, Australia

Format: Hands On, Lecture21 Jun 2017

09:00 - 16:30
Duration: 6.5 hrs

Category
General Dentistry

Description
Clinical photography is not just about beautiful white teeth or cosmetic artistry. With today’s digital technology every dentist can chronicle what they see in the mouth, whether for general records or whenever the situation warrants photographic documentation. The closest thing to the reality of the mouth is a photograph. X-rays do not show failing restorations, crack lines and wear patterns; notes cannot always clearly indicate the sequence of events in a clinical session; study models poorly represent the restored nature of teeth and the health of soft tissues.

The routine use of digital photography can significantly enhance record-taking, validate clinical decisions and provide an impressive tool for patient education and practice marketing. Attendees will see reviews of all types of cameras and the armamentarium required to take extra and intra-oral pictures. People easily comprehend visual data and this course will show instant quality images can dramatically improve patient understanding and acceptance of treatment recommendations. This course will be an invaluable experience for general dentists and specialists and will be useful for general photography as well.

Course Topics
- Photographs as part of records and communication in everyday dental practice
- Images for patient education… ‘I want you to see what I see’
- The essence of exposure, aperture and ISO in digital photography and overcoming the difficulties of hand-held macro photography
- All the information on cameras and recommended systems as well as retractors, mirrors etc
- The proper technique for taking intra-oral and extra-oral images
- Better patient acceptance of treatment using photography and descriptive statements

Learning Objectives
- Using modern digital camera technology without excess cost
- Learn how to take consistently outstanding intra- and extra-oral images
- Save, store, archive and display images – simplifying work flow and data asset management

Speaker
Dr Peter Sheridan
Accredited with the Australian Institute of Professional Photographers, Dr Peter Sheridan’s photos have been used by the National Gallery of Victoria, the Sydney Morning Herald and the Collectors Magazine. Peter has won awards for his landscape and animal photos. He is an internationally respected author, historian and collector of art deco.

Practical Radiography in Dental Practice

ADA NSW Centre for Professional Development

Speaker: Dr Steven Cohn and Dr Peter CaseSydney, Australia

Format: Hands On, Lecture28 Jun 2017

08:30 - 12:30
Duration: 3.5 hrs

Category
General Dentistry, Radiography

Description
Accurate radiographs are essential to make a correct diagnosis, deliver positive treatment outcomes, assess long-term results and provide medico-legal protection. This course will look at the opportunities and challenges of 2D and 3D imaging.

Conventional 2D images remain the mainstay of dental treatment with film, digital sensors or phosphor plate options. Digital systems used correctly reduce radiation exposure and the need for manual processing of traditional film. Software allows manipulation of images to enhance diagnostic quality. However, digital radiography presents clinical challenges due to the size and rigidity of the sensors in certain parts of the mouth. Managed incorrectly the advantages of digital technology can be negated.

There are a confusing number of film/sensor holders and beam alignment devices on the market. This course will utilize two holders that operate across all 2D platforms and give you the results you need and want, including one of the most difficult procedures, an accurate endodontic image with rubber dam in place.

3D images provided by CBCT enhance diagnosis in complex cases. This is an exciting new addition to diagnostic imaging. Usage is increasing rapidly. However, CBCT is an added expense for the patient as well as additional exposure to radiation. How do you decide when CBCT is indicated? What are the best and easiest to use software programs? How do you interpret the information provided by the CBCT? This course will provide clear guidelines for this emerging technology.

The ability to take accurate and reproducible 2D radiographs or digital images is a fundamental requirement for a successful dental practice. The objective of this part of the course is to demonstrate simple clinical techniques to achieve this aim for all teeth and under all clinical situations

Attendees should be willing to try the recommended film holders on themselves and have the rubber dam applied for that part of the course dealing with endodontic treatment.

3D imaging is a new and exciting tool that improves diagnosis and treatment planning. The aim of this part of the course is to make you familiar with all aspects of this technology so you can decide how 3D can become part of your practice.

Topics include
- What is the definition of a high quality 2D image?
- 2D positioning techniques for all teeth
- Conventional film versus digital; pros and cons
- Advance in diagnosis and treatment planning with cutting-edge technologies
- 3D imaging pros and cons
- Interpretation of CBCT images: how to use generic imaging software to maximum advantage
- Which 3D imaging system suits my surgery?

Learning Objectives
At the conclusion of this course participants will know how to:
- Successfully image any part of the mouth
- Deal with difficult situations such as gagging
- Correct procedural errors by applying a standard formula

Practical Radiography in Dental Practice

ADA NSW Centre for Professional Development

Speaker: Dr Steven Cohn and Dr Peter CaseSydney, Australia

Format: Hands On, Lecture28 Jun 2017

13:30 - 17:30
Duration: 3.5 hrs

Category
General Dentistry, Radiography

Description
Accurate radiographs are essential to make a correct diagnosis, deliver positive treatment outcomes, assess long-term results and provide medico-legal protection. This course will look at the opportunities and challenges of 2D and 3D imaging.

Conventional 2D images remain the mainstay of dental treatment with film, digital sensors or phosphor plate options. Digital systems used correctly reduce radiation exposure and the need for manual processing of traditional film. Software allows manipulation of images to enhance diagnostic quality. However, digital radiography presents clinical challenges due to the size and rigidity of the sensors in certain parts of the mouth. Managed incorrectly the advantages of digital technology can be negated.

There are a confusing number of film/sensor holders and beam alignment devices on the market. This course will utilize two holders that operate across all 2D platforms and give you the results you need and want, including one of the most difficult procedures, an accurate endodontic image with rubber dam in place.

3D images provided by CBCT enhance diagnosis in complex cases. This is an exciting new addition to diagnostic imaging. Usage is increasing rapidly. However, CBCT is an added expense for the patient as well as additional exposure to radiation. How do you decide when CBCT is indicated? What are the best and easiest to use software programs? How do you interpret the information provided by the CBCT? This course will provide clear guidelines for this emerging technology.

The ability to take accurate and reproducible 2D radiographs or digital images is a fundamental requirement for a successful dental practice. The objective of this part of the course is to demonstrate simple clinical techniques to achieve this aim for all teeth and under all clinical situations

Attendees should be willing to try the recommended film holders on themselves and have the rubber dam applied for that part of the course dealing with endodontic treatment.

3D imaging is a new and exciting tool that improves diagnosis and treatment planning. The aim of this part of the course is to make you familiar with all aspects of this technology so you can decide how 3D can become part of your practice.

Topics include
- What is the definition of a high quality 2D image?
- 2D positioning techniques for all teeth
- Conventional film versus digital; pros and cons
- Advance in diagnosis and treatment planning with cutting-edge technologies
- 3D imaging pros and cons
- Interpretation of CBCT images: how to use generic imaging software to maximum advantage
- Which 3D imaging system suits my surgery?

Learning Objectives
At the conclusion of this course participants will know how to:
- Successfully image any part of the mouth
- Deal with difficult situations such as gagging
- Correct procedural errors by applying a standard formula
- Apply the "buccal object rule" in both the horizontal and vertical planes
- Assess the clinical benefits of digital versus phosphor systems
- Successfully take endodontic “working” films with rubber dam
- Rapidly process radiographs in 40 seconds that are of lasting quality
- Enhance the interpretation of 3D imaging
- Identify pathology and artifacts in 2D and 3D images
- Understand the medico-legal implications of 3D imaging

RAP Indirect Complex Posterior Restorations Module 3

Henry Schein New Zealand

Speaker: Dr Richard Eilenberg & Dr Edmund YoungAuckland

Format: Hands On, Lecture 7 Jul 2017

08:30 - 17:00
Duration: 6 hrs

Category
Dental Education, Restorative Dentistry

Description
Almost every day dentists are often faced with making the decision on whether to remove the last remaining coronal tooth structure in a compromised tooth to enable them to restore the tooth with an indirect restoration.

When a traditional crown is fabricated, sound tooth tissue is often removed and the crown margin is close to the gingival tissue. These areas are often difficult to prepare and control interproximally especially when they are subgingival.

The preparation of a weakened tooth often further compromises the tooth’s biomechanical integrity.

Pulpal morbitity is often reduced when less extensive tooth preparation can be carried out.

The presenters will give a guide in the modern techniques used today in how to restore compromised teeth in complex situations seen by general dentists every day.

Understand critical tooth landmarks for longevity
- Foundations for indirect restorations
- preparation design for posterior teeth
- Burs and preparation finishing
- Optical impressions
- Traditional Impression techniques, (easy vs tough situations)
- Overview of Impression materials, materials available today
- Temporisation techniques and materials

Endodontics

Description
Endodontic Management of tooth is an integral part of routine general dentistry. Primarily a microorganism caused pulpal and periapical disease could be a challenging task for diagnosis and treatment planning. Each tooth has a unique anatomy of root canal system with various numbers, curvatures as well as apical exits of canals, leading to a new set of challenges every time the endodontic treatment is attempted. Dr Desai will be discussing and sharing useful tips and tricks for day-to-day endodontic assessment, diagnosis and treatment procedures. The aim of the workshop is to simplify simple to moderate case scenarios as well as identify and minimize potential complications.

The day course is primarily hands-on workshop for access preparation, locating and shaping of the root canal system as well as using current techniques and tools for root fillings. The participants would gain ample practice on extracted teeth with a view to gradual and smooth transition into their clinical practice.

The workshop involves step-by-step demonstration of modern treatment procedures along with hands on workshop on extracted teeth.

Learning Objectives
- Diagnosis and case selection in Endodontics, including understanding of the use of advanced investigative tools like CBCT.
- Locating root canals - including difficult to locate orifices (MB2, second distal or lingual canal) - basic science, clinical applications and hands-on workshop.
- Identifying and avoiding potential complications during root canal shaping.
- Various uses of ultrasonic endodontic tools.
- Use of Hyflex TM EDM / Hyflex TM CM state of the art file system for shaping of the root canal system - EDM NiTi Files.
- Use of modern vertical compaction technique for root canal filling.

Why, When and How of Post and Cores

ADA NSW Centre for Professional Development

Speaker: Dr Praveen NathanielSydney, Australia

Format: Hands On, Lecture12 Jul 2017

08:00 - 17:00
Duration: 7.5 hrs

Category
General Dentistry, Prosthodontics

Description
There are a number of prefabricated post and core materials currently available for the restoration of endodontically treated teeth. The materials currently on the market today demonstrate a variety of mechanical properties and aesthetic potential, while the selection of the optimum post and core system depends upon clinical judgment and the specific clinical situation.
Are you uncertain about whether to post that root canal treated tooth? Confused as to which post to place? Not sure about the new fibre posts and whether you can trust them? Should you place a post in that molar? Can’t remember how to do a custom direct post? At the end of the day you should feel confident about tackling that root canal treated tooth.

This full day lecture and hands-on workshop will cover the indications for placing a post and which post to choose. There are numerous techniques of post preparation and insertion of systems including direct custom posts, indirect custom posts, fibre posts which will be covered in this course. Indirect restoration options for postless root canal treated teeth will be investigated, aesthetic post options will be demonstrated, and cements that are appropriate for each post system will also be discussed. The importance of ferrule and the amount required in each tooth location and various situations will be talked about.

Participants will learn practical techniques which will be able to be applied the next day in the surgery. Practitioners are welcome to bring models or x-rays of cases they may need help with.

Topics include:
- When to post
- Construction Custom post and fitting
- Postless restoration designs
- Aesthetic post options
- Fibre post and core construction
- Impression taking for post construction
- Cementation for posts

Surgical Cadaver Course

Neoss Australia Pty Ltd

Format: Hands On, Lecture13 Jul 2017

17:00 - 20:30
Duration: 3 hrs

Category
Dental Implants, Oral Surgery

Description
Intense Hands On Surgical Implant Programme
The Challenges of Placement in the Resorbed Maxilla and Mandible
- Managing the posterior maxilla and mandible
- What to do when working in and around the sinus
- Maxilla and mandibular anatomical structures
- When to graft and when not to graft

Didactic learning with three experienced clinicians
Dental management with implants in the posterior region of the jaws can be a complex situation. Owing to the presence of vital structures, complications can be devastating. Advanced anatomical knowledge of nerves, vessels and sinuses is critical to safe and successful treatment planning. A thorough understanding of hard and soft tissue anatomy is considered pre-requisite and essential in straight forward and anatomically challenged implant solutions.

This course has two phases:
Phase one (Thursday evening)
Provides the fundamentals in implant placement covering assessment and drilling protocols and is conducted on Thursday evening. If clinicians have a full understanding of these aspects and feel they don’t need a refresher course on these aspects they can proceed with phase 2 where this knowledge is assumed.

Phase two (Friday & Saturday)
Is our 2 day cadaver course where there will be didactic lectures and hands on exercises on regional and surgical anatomy, classical and oblique first and second stage implant and adjunctive surgery.

Simplified Common Sense Orthodontic Biomechanics

ADA NSW Centre for Professional Development

Speaker: Dr Eric LowenhauptSydney, Australia

Format: Hands On, Lecture14 - 15 Jul 2017

08:30 - 17:00
Duration: 13 hrs

Category
General Dentistry, Orthodontics

Description
In today’s clinical environment the success of orthodontic treatment is not only measured by the goals of obtaining an aesthetics, functional and stable result but these goals must also be achieved in an effective and efficient way. To this end much emphasis has been placed on various appliances systems, including fixed and removable.

The debates over bracket designs, wire types, arch form, ligation techniques, aligner therapy as well as many procedures touted to increase the speed of tooth movement rages throughout the literature. Through all of this the basic requirements for orthodontic tooth movement have not changed over the many years that we have been moving teeth. With the understanding and mastering of ‘simplified common sense orthodontic biomechanics’ orthodontic treatment can be provided in a qualitative manner with efficiency with any appliance system the practitioner chooses.

Our goal is to set-up simplified force systems to address any type of tooth movement necessary, because in orthodontics ‘tooth movement’ has always been the name of the game.

Learning Objectives:
- Identify and understand various biomechanical principles
- Understand how to apply various principles to your appliance
- Understand how to create desired and predictable tooth movements
- Understand additive and subtractive forces and how your appliance may be helping you or hindering you
- Understand efficient biomechanics to achieve effective results in a variety of patients

Numerous cases and hands on exercises, including wire bending and typodont exercises, will be used to demonstrate various aspects of these ‘simplified common sense mechanics’.

The main objective is to teach the participant how to utilise these ‘simplified mechanics’ to achieve success in their orthodontic cases using any appliance system. Ideally, to get the most out of the course the participant should have some orthodontic experience in fixed appliances.

Category
Dental Implants, Oral Surgery

Description
Intense Hands On Surgical Implant Programme
The Challenges of Placement in the Resorbed Maxilla and Mandible
- Managing the posterior maxilla and mandible
- What to do when working in and around the sinus
- Maxilla and mandibular anatomical structures
- When to graft and when not to graft

Didactic learning with three experienced clinicians
Dental management with implants in the posterior region of the jaws can be a complex situation. Owing to the presence of vital structures, complications can be devastating. Advanced anatomical knowledge of nerves, vessels and sinuses is critical to safe and successful treatment planning. A thorough understanding of hard and soft tissue anatomy is considered pre-requisite and essential in straight forward and anatomically challenged implant solutions.

This course has two phases:
Phase one (Thursday evening)
Provides the fundamentals in implant placement covering assessment and drilling protocols and is conducted on Thursday evening. If clinicians have a full understanding of these aspects and feel they don’t need a refresher course on these aspects they can proceed with phase 2 where this knowledge is assumed.

Phase two (Friday & Saturday)
Is our 2 day cadaver course where there will be didactic lectures and hands on exercises on regional and surgical anatomy, classical and oblique first and second stage implant and adjunctive surgery.
The course will be conducted in a purpose built laboratory for working on cadavers and has high technology workstations. The course will be a combination of lectures, demonstrations and hands on exercises and will allow ample time for one on one discussion with the presenters.

Learning outcomes
At the end of the programme participants with have the knowledge to understand the following:

Managing Patients with Drug Allergies and Adverse Reactions - Unlearning what you Learned at Uni

ADA NSW Centre for Professional Development

Speaker: Associate Professor Geraldine MosesSydney, Australia

Format: Lecture14 Jul 2017

09:00 - 16:00
Duration: 6 hrs

Category
General Dentistry, Pharmacology

Description
Antibiotic allergy is self-reported in up to 1 in 10 patients yet numerous studies have shown that ~90% are not allergic at all when assessed by skin testing. Given the limited range of antibiotics used in dentistry, heeding antibiotic allergy claims poses challenges to appropriate antibiotic selection. How can you confidently tell the difference between those who think they are “allergic” and those who truly are? This seminar will explain the four types of drug allergies, how to differentiate between them and how to prescribe in each context, given emerging data that these drugs do not have to be avoided forever as was once thought. We will also discuss adverse drug reactions in general, why it is so important to include them in a patient’s medical history, how to prescribe around them, how to diagnose those that manifest in the oral cavity or those that arise from dental drugs.

This seminar will give you the skills to finally sort out all those patients truly are allergic to medications, who think they are allergic to penicillin, “sulpha” drugs or codeine but aren’t , and what your responsibilities are for those patients who have legitimate concerns about medications causing adverse effects.

Topics include
- Allergy Vs Adverse Reactions – telling the difference, getting it right
- Prescribing safely to patients who claim antibiotic allergies.
- Managing patients who claim allergies to local anaesthetics, codeine, chlorhexidine, dental materials, parabens
- ADRs- How do we ever know the side effects of drugs? Become a ‘pharmacovigilante’.
- How to diagnose allergies and adverse drug reactions (ADRs).
- Adverse drug reactions that occur in the oral cavity.

Learning Objectives
After this seminar, attendees will: •Understand the difference between allergies and adverse drug reactions
- Know the four types of allergic reactions and their key manifestations
- Differentiate between allergic patients who must avoid all penicillins and cephalosporins and those who do not.
- Avoid using the term “sulpha allergy” and will develop more accurate allergy history documentation.
- Be able to use the tools presented to prevent, diagnose and report adverse drug reactions, especially those that occur in the oral cavity.

Category
Dental Education, Dental Materials, Patient Management, Practice Management

Description
Keeping Patients for Life objective:
To assist dental practices in achieving optimal patient service, thereby creating life-long relationships with patients, and enabling them to take responsibility for their own oral health.

Learning outcomes

Loyalty:
After completing this module, participants will have a clearer understanding of the following Primespeak objectives:
1. The patient is aware of their current oral health, and the damaging results of any existing conditions
2. The patient understands their treatment options and knows that any treatment chosen is entirely their decision
3. The patient feels supported and respected by the practice, regardless of the treatment they choose

Team members will have a clearer understanding of how patients choose their dental practice and why they stay loyal to a practice – not only because of clinicians’ clinical experience and expertise but also because of genuine care and consistency in the delivery of dental services.


Uncertainty checklist:
After completing this module – participants will know the reasons for having consistent protocols and procedures for all team members (referring to Dental Accreditation in Australia NSQHS Standards)

Standard 1: Governance for Safety and Quality in Health Service Organisations
Standard 2: Partnering with Consumers
Standard 3: Preventing and Controlling Healthcare Associated Infections
Standard 4: Medication Safety
Standard 5: Patient Identification and Procedure Matching
Standard 6: Clinical Handover

Upon completion of this module, the dental practice will have a specific plan for how to deal with any inconsistencies in the practice. These inconsistencies pertain to any communication, or flow of information, from clinicians or team members, that confuses the patient.


Influencing Principles:
After completing this module, participants will have practical tools to help create and retain loyal patients – patients who have sufficient trust in practice clinicians and team members to choose optimal treatment for long-lasting oral health and well-being.

The entire team is well prepared for the critical moments of truth at each touch point in the dental practice.


Service recovery:
By using service recovery tools in a dental practice, clinicians and team members will be able to salvage and turn around problematic situations involving patients, whether caused by the practice, external stakeholders like dental laboratories, or unforeseen circumstances.

Description
This course will provide training for the dental team to help them work together in a productive and efficient way. It will demonstrate how to lessen fatigue, stress levels, improve posture and to work together as a cohesive team. It will also improve the dental assistant anticipation of procedures.

Participants will be shown how to make minimum movements throughout the procedure to facilitate four handed dentistry. Emphasis will be placed on accomplishing a smooth flowing process, where each member of the dental team knows what is expected of them.

When conducted properly, fatigue is lessened because the procedures are carried out in a manner where the dentist is required to concentrate only on the dental treatment being carried out (not what is happening around them). Learn how body movements and eye focus can be kept to a minimum, and productivity and patient flow is increased as dental treatment is delivered in a specific routine manner.

Course Topics
- Outline of OHS in the dental practice
- Infection control
- Personal Protective Equipment (PPE)
- Benefits of four handed dentistry

Description
Many of our patients are quite anxious about seeking and receiving dental treatment. In fact, it may lead to some people avoiding dental care completely until excruciating pain gives them no choice. Dentists should be able to provide alternatives to control a patient’s anxiety and to assist them to receive treatment.

This course will cover a spectrum of anxiety relieving alternatives. It will give the caring dentist a selection of anxiolytic techniques that can be offered to their patients including psychosedation, oral sedation and nitrous oxide sedation.

All participants will have the opportunity to administer and experience the full range of effects of relative analgesia using nitrous oxide- oxygen, and, after completing the course, will feel confident in setting up and administering this agent.

Topics include
•The basics of fear and anxiety in the dental office
•The utilisation of psychosedation techniques
•Review of Basic Life Support
•The utilisation of oral sedation ◦Administration and monitorin
◦Concerns and contraindications
◦Managing complications

•The utilisation of nitrous oxide sedation ◦Administration and monitorin
◦Concerns and contraindications
◦Managing complications

Learning Objectives
•Gain an understanding of the key causes of fear and anxiety in our patients
•Understand basic psychosedation techniques and be able to apply them
•Revise Basic Life Support
•Understand pharmacodynamics and pharmacokinetics, advantages/disadvantages, indications/contra-indications of oral sedation and feel confident utilising it in your practice
•Understand pharmacodynamics and pharmacokinetics, advantages/disadvantages, indications/contra-indications of nitrous oxide sedation and feel confident utilising it in your practice

Other Information
During the practical session, participants will work in groups and learn both slow and fast nitrous oxide-oxygen induction techniques. It is essential that all participants wishing to perform any procedure on a colleague in a learning environment are registered dental professionals in Australia.

Restoration and Preservation of the Compromised Tooth

ADA NSW Centre for Professional Development

Speaker: Professor Ian MeyersSydney, Australia

Format: Hands On, Lecture27 Jul 2017

09:00 - 16:00
Duration: 6 hrs

Category
General Dentistry, Restorative Dentistry

Description
Over the patient’s lifetime their dentition is subject to a range of destructive forces which may decrease the longevity of individual teeth and ultimately the entire dentition. Caries, tooth wear, cracks, fractures, and previous restorative treatments can all result in severely compromised teeth with limited, and often weakened, remaining tooth structure. While complex restorative options involving fixed prosthodontics will provide suitable solutions in many cases, they may in some circumstances further weaken the tooth by removing sound tooth structure. There are situations when more conservative and less costly alternatives need to be considered for patients.

​This lecture and hands-on workshop will look at a range of clinical situations involving weakened and functionally fatigued teeth and discuss the conservative restorative management of these teeth to preserve the remaining tooth structure and maintain the patient’s dentition.

Topics include
•Restoration of the large posterior restoration
•Interproximal contacts and functional anatomical form
•Open and closed sandwich restorations
•Management options for cracked cusps/teeth
•Cusp and tooth reinforcement techniques
•Internal and external tooth bracing
•Fibre reinforced restorations
•Direct and semi-direct restorative options
•Prevention of catastrophic failure
•Conservative restoration as a precursor to complex restoration


Speaker
Professor Ian Meyers

09:00 - 16:00
Duration: 6 hrs

Category
General Dentistry

Description
The range and availability of glass-ionomer materials has greatly expanded in the last few years. Along with this there have been significant improvements in the clinical handling and physical properties of many of these materials and consequently a number of extended and enhanced clinical applications have arisen.

This presentation will explore and discuss the critical issues in the therapeutic and restorative management of patients using glass-ionomer materials. A range of clinical cases will be presented to illustrate the benefits of the various formulations of glass-ionomer cement and participants will undertake technique exercises to demonstrate how the use of GICs can be maximised in a range of restorative applications to achieve optimal outcomes.

This hands-on workshop will provide participants with a comprehensive understanding of the clinical use of glass-ionomer cements and how they can be incorporated into everyday dental practice.

Topics include
•Patient risk assessment and risk minimisation
•Selection and manipulation of the various types of glass-ionomer cement.
•Therapeutic restorations, including fissure and surface protection.
•Posterior interproximal restorations - when and when not to use open and closed sandwich restorations.
•Applications as linings, bases, provisional restorations and luting cements.
•Clinical techniques and tips to improve outcomes and minimise failures.

Learning Objectives
•Understand the different glass-ionomer materials available and how their composition and properties differ.
•Determine which glass-ionomer materials are most suitable for which clinical situations.
•Recognise the role of glass-ionomers in the management of the patient’s dentition throughout their life and their changing risk factors.
•Enhance practitioner skills in the manipulation and handling of glass-ionomers to achieve optimum outcomes.
•Appreciate the benefits and limitations of the various glass-ionomer materials.

- Standard precautions and associated key updates for successful sterilisation outcomes.
- Policy and Procedures manuals - how, why and the importance of team implementation.
- Hand Hygiene update - hand washing and ABHR use.
- Personal Hygiene and Personal Protective Equipment requirements and use.
- Reprocessing and handling of used instruments (reusable medical device).
- Pre-cleaning for successful sterilisation - the critical step.
- Disinfection vs. detergency.
- Surface management protocols - clinical contact surfaces and general environment.
- Instrument reprocessing - the overall process.
- Sterilisation - packaging, loading, monitoring requirements and recording the process.
- Validation - of both equipment, and the overall sterilisation process.

Learning Objectives:
- Discuss the basic principles of sterilisation and disinfection, including the importance of cleaning each/any item before a process is used.
- Understand and practically apply Standard Precautions.
- Highlight methods of sterilisation.
- Highlight key principles for special considerations for disinfection and sterilisation issues, such as dental unit water lines and evacuation systems.

•Cleaning processes
•Disinfecting
•Sterilisation
•Human factors in the transmission of infection
•The team approach to infection control
•Validation techniques

Hypomineralised Enamel - What's New?

ADA NSW Centre for Professional Development

Speaker: Professor David Manton and Dr Philippa SawyerSydney, Australia

Format: Hands On, Lecture 9 Aug 2017

09:00 - 16:30
Duration: 6.5 hrs

Category
General Dentistry

Description
Over the past decade there has been increased awareness and interest in molar-incisor hypomineralisation (MIH), a prevalent develop-mental condition affecting the six year old molars and often the permanent incisors of around 15% of the population worldwide.

Now we realise that all teeth can have hypo-mineralised enamel just like MIH and that having primary teeth affected increases the chance of affected permanent teeth. MIH often influences caries risk, treatment planning, orthodontic care, and behaviour – so it is a challenging condition to deal with. Stainless Steel crowns are used routinely by Paediatric Dentists to preserve the first permanent molars in cases of MIH.
The skill and confidence to place these crowns will extend the available options for general dentists in the management of these cases.

Participants will learn the diagnosis and management of hypomineralised teeth from minimal intervention through to the appropriate use of stainless steel crowns.

Topics include
•What causes MIH? What are your treatment options?
•Treatment planning for the affected child
•When and how to place Stainless Steel crowns

Learning Objectives
•To explain the pathogenesis, prevalence and clinical features of hypomineralised enamel
•To discuss the clinical consequences of hypomineralised enamel on treatment planning and clinical care; and to demonstrate clinical options for improved outcomes for affected teeth and the development of the occlusion
•To gain the knowledge and skill to determine when and how to place Stainless Steel crowns in the management of these case.

He has published more than 80 manuscripts in peer-reviewed journals and his interests are in all aspects of enamel de- and remineralisation, minimal intervention dentistry, teledentistry, and molar incisor hypomineralisation (MIH).



Dr Philippa Sawyer
Graduated BDS (USyd) in 1984 and worked in general practice until 1998 when she undertook specialist Paediatric Dentistry training at New York University. Dr Sawyer was Lecturer in Paediatric Dentistry at the University of Sydney 2001-2003. She has been in private specialist practice since 2004. The management of patients with enamel hypomineralisation forms a significant part of the practice of paediatric dentistry due to the high number of referrals from general dentists. Improving the diagnostic and management skills of general dentists will improve outcomes for paediatric patients.

Maximising Endodontic Success

ADA NSW Centre for Professional Development

Speaker: Adjunct Associate Professor Peter CathroSydney, Australia

Format: Hands On, Lecture19 Aug 2017

09:00 - 16:30
Duration: 6.5 hrs

Category
Endodontics, General Dentistry

Description
The aim of this course is to extend the basic endodontic principles to cope with more complicated clinical scenarios that are often encountered. Seven principles will be discussed throughout the course.

Course Topics
- Predicting successful outcomes. Central to successful endodontics is appropriate case selection. This section will consider restorability, provisional restorations, alternative treatment options and provide guidance as to which cases can be considered predictable and which should be avoided.
- Management strategies for calcified canals, locating and negotiating the MB2. Gaining access to the foramen is often the most challenging stage in endodontics. Techniques for locating and negotiating calcified canals will be covered. Try and bring some teeth with narrow or calcified canals to trial some alternative techniques.
- Management of open apices. Trauma to immature teeth often results in having to manage an open apex. The traditional method was long-term calcium hydroxide dressings. There is now a trend to either apexification with MTA or to attempt “regenerative endodontics”. The indications/contraindications for these approaches will be covered.
- Perforation repair. Getting your “assistant” out of trouble may involve managing a perforation. How perforations are handled immediately can make a marked difference in the outcome. The hands-on component will cover a few treatment strategies that can be easily implemented.
- Post and fractured instrument removal. The use of ultrasonics to manage both of these situations will be explored and guidelines to when you should implement them.
- Energised irrigation techniques. Irrigation is perhaps the most crucial aspect of the chemo-mechanical preparation and there are a number of new instruments available to energise the irritants. This section will review the current technologies available.
- Surgical principles - ultrasonic preparation and retrograde fillings. Advanced surgical principles have corresponded to an increase in surgical success rates. An understanding of these concepts is essential to those either referring or performing surgery.

Learning Objectives
- Identify appropriate case selection for successful treatment outcomes
- Locate and negotiate calcified and additional canals (MB2)
- Master the skills required to repair perforations, remove posts and manage teeth with open apices
- Summarise the indications and contraindications for re-treatment or surgical approaches to provide the best treatment options for your patients

Course Requirements
This course requires practitioners to collect and access four (4) extracted posterior teeth. Practitioners are also encouraged to bring their loupes on the day. Further details will be provided upon registering.

Format: Hands On, Lecture22 - 25 Aug 2017

09:00 - 17:00
Duration: 24 hrs

Category
Forensic Dentistry, General Dentistry

Description
ADA NSW Centre for Professional Developement in conjunction with the NSW Forensic Dental Unit, are pleased to present the annual Forensic Odontology and Forensic Anthropology course. This four-day course will introduce participants to the scope and practice of forensic odontology with particular emphasis on disaster victim identification.

Utilisation of dental techniques for human identification are simple in concept but complex in process. Participants will be guided through the inter-related processes and procedures utilised in a disaster event. Presentations on the Asian Tsunami and other mass fatality incidents are used to illustrate the process.

A practical component with a mock disaster exercise is held in the main mortuary. Exercises in tooth identification, antemortem and postmortem radiographic matching and age estimation from radiographic evidence are also components of the course.

The anthropological component of the course is held at the Shellshear Museum at the University of Sydney which represents a unique reference collection. Here participants will work in groups to undertake a workshop on race, sex, age and stature estimation.

Participants will have a greater understanding of the value of the quality of their clinical records in the identification process. Become a forensic “sleeper”, a skill set that will fascinate you but we hope you will never need.


Topics include
•The history of forensic dentistry
•Identification methods
•Mass casualty incidents
•Mortuary procedures
•Medical and Dental Autopsies
•Dental radiology
•Forensic pathology
•Dental records and nomenclature
•Giving evidence in court
•Post traumatic stress
•Race, age, sex and stature determination
•Age estimation
•Identification of bite marks and child abuse
•Computerised dental & bite mark identification

09:00 - 16:30
Duration: 6.5 hrs

Category
General Dentistry, Infection Control

Description
Infection control is easy. Achieving consistently high standards of infection control is hard, very hard. Infection control is dependent upon human behaviour and this is the variable that makes consistent infection control hard to achieve.

This course addresses cleaning, disinfecting and sterilisation techniques and provides the dental practitioner with the knowledge and skills to manage the human element of infection control. The course will demonstrate how a crew resource management approach can lead a dental team into carrying out cleaning, disinfecting and sterilising processes consistently while ensuring established protocols, standards and guidelines are met.

All healthcare consumers in Australia should be confident about their dental practitioner’s infection control standards and be sure they are committed to patient safety and the quality of their care and services.

Topics include
•Cleaning processes
•Disinfecting
•Sterilisation
•Human factors in the transmission of infection
•The team approach to infection control
•Validation techniques

Learning Objectives
At the end of this course the dental practitioner will have gained the knowledge and skills necessary to set their practice’s standards for cleaning, disinfection and sterilisation and learn how to objectively validate their effectiveness on an on-going basis using a team-based approach.

Other Information
Practice Managers must be accompanied by their Dentist.
