Duration: 3.5 hrs

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

Description
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.

2017 NZAO Biennial Conference

We are delighted to advise that we have two internationally acknowledged keynote speakers in Professors Kevin O'Brien and Sunil Kapila (from Manchester, England and San Francisco respectively). They are world renowned for researching evidence for best clinical practice, and we eagerly anticipate their presentations.

We expect most New Zealand Orthodontists to attend, and will no doubt attract overseas delegates. There will also be a parallel staff programme.

Queenstown is a destination, and the two social functions include a dinner at the Skyline venue at the top of the gondolas, as well as a boat trip on the "SS Earnslaw" and dinner at Walter Peak Station. We encourage you to take advantage of the many other attractions that Queenstown, Lake Wakatipu and Central Otago have to offer. Queenstown is accessed by air from most northern New Zealand cities, and there are many direct flights daily to Queenstown from Australia.

We welcome and encourage you to attend our biennial conference. Further information is available on this website.

We look forward to you joining us in QUEENSTOWN in March.

Description
- Can we practice evidence based Orthodontics: dealing with uncertainty, Kevin O'Brien
In this presentation I will discuss the dilemma of attempting to practice evidence-based orthodontics. I will use examples from my own work on how research reduces, or increases, clinical uncertainty. While this presentation will be based on orthodontic examples, I will also discuss other areas of dentistry to illustrate that orthodontics is not the only area of work in which recognising and dealing with uncertainty is becoming increasingly important particularly with respect to the regulation of dentistry.

- Orthodontics in 5D. Enhancing treatment efficiency and outcomes, Sunil Kapila
The long duration of treatment is one of the biggest limitations of orthodontic therapy. For this reason, there is a constant demand for methods that expedite tooth movement and increase efficiency of orthodontic treatment. Thus surgical methods that have recently regained visibility and the introduction of new devices attest to the continued interest in enhancing tooth movement rates. However, there is limited evidence for the efficacy of many of these methods to expedite tooth movement. In his lecture, Dr. Kapila will provide a historical perspective and current evidence for methods proposed to enhance treatment efficiency. He will also describe approaches to optimally utilize 3D information and biomedical approaches to enhance both orthodontic treatment efficiency and outcomes. Application of strategies of optimal 3D diagnosis, treatment planning and implementing biomechanics in 3D will contribute to success in the fourth dimension of time by delivering efficient treatment and the in fifth dimension with improved treatment outcomes. The audience will learn about:
- The current status of and evidence for surgical and mechanical approaches to expedite tooth movement
- Novel approaches using biomedical agents to enhance tooth movement rates
- The application of simple and effective biomechanics in 3D to optimally control tooth movement and anchorage in 3D to improve treatment efficiency and outcomes
- Using 3D Image-aided treatment and biomechanics for improved success and efficiency in retrieving impacted and transposed teeth

- In the land of no evidence is the salesman king? Kevin O'Brien
Over the past few years in dentistry advertising by both the supply companies and individual practitioners has been increasing. This is directed at both the promotion of products and the introduction of new philosophies. In this lecture I will evaluate the effect of advertising, that is not supported by scientific evidence, on current practice. I will also discuss the "teaching" of orthodontics and other treatment to general practitioners by short courses from a regulatory viewpoint.

- WFAS Trust Update, Hannah Jack

- How do you read a trial and systemic review, Kevin O'Brien
Contemporary research methods are more complex. As a result, it is becoming more difficult to interpret and understand many of the trials and systematic reviews that are being published. In this presentation, I will provide information on methods of understanding research, using examples from the literature.

- Adolescent class II treatment - twin blocks, mandibular growth and systemic reviews
Most research has concluded that the best time to provide functional appliance treatment is during the pubertal growth period. However, there is still uncertainty on the type of appliance that we should use. I will provide evidence from clinical trials and systematic reviews that should underpin our treatment decisions.

Thus surgical methods that have recently regained visibility and the introduction of new devices attest to the continued interest in enhancing tooth movement rates. However, there is limited evidence for the efficacy of many of these methods to expedite tooth movement. In his lecture, Dr. Kapila will provide a historical perspective and current evidence for methods proposed to enhance treatment efficiency. He will also describe approaches to optimally utilize 3D information and biomedical approaches to enhance both orthodontic treatment efficiency and outcomes. Application of strategies of optimal 3D diagnosis, treatment planning and implementing biomechanics in 3D will contribute to success in the fourth dimension of time by delivering efficient treatment and the in fifth dimension with improved treatment outcomes. The audience will learn about:
- The current status of and evidence for surgical and mechanical approaches to expedite tooth movement
- Novel approaches using biomedical agents to enhance tooth movement rates
- The application of simple and effective biomechanics in 3D to optimally control tooth movement and anchorage in 3D to improve treatment efficiency and outcomes
- Using 3D Image-aided treatment and biomechanics for improved success and efficiency in retrieving impacted and transposed teeth

- Socio psychological effects of orthodontic treatment - are we interested and do we care? Kevin O'Brien
The most common reason for providing orthodontic treatment is to improve the appearance of the face and teeth. While this assumption is logical there is limited research into the effectiveness of orthodontic treatment on psychosocial status. I shall describe current research into this area and raise fundamental questions on the value of orthodontics on psychosocial benefit. Finally, I shall discuss whether we simply need to correct the aesthetic appearance of the front six teeth "the social six" as opposed to achieving a perfect occlusion.

- Early class II treatment. Does the cost outweigh the benefits? Kevin O'Brien
In this presentation I will outline the results of my own research into early Class II treatment. In addition, I will present data from our recently updated Cochrane review into Class II treatment. This will involve a consideration of important factors such as self-esteem, treatment duration, reduction of trauma and overall cost.

- Ask the Professionals, Q&A Session

- 3D image aided treatment of impacted and transposed teeth, Sunil Kapila
Three-dimensional (3-D) imaging rendered by Cone Beam Computed Tomography (CBCT) facilitates refined diagnosis and enables fine-tuning of treatment plans in specific types of cases. In patients with impacted and transposed teeth, the information derived is particularly important in enhancing efficiency of treatment, rates of success and minimizing collateral damage during treatment. In his talk, Dr. Kapila will present the indications and uses of CBCT imaging in diagnosis and treatment planning for impacted and transposed teeth, including protocols for communicating with the surgeon to achieve optimal surgical access, bond placement and soft tissue support, and the utilization of this information to implement efficient three-dimensional mechanics. He will also discuss the use of refined spring designs to tract the teeth along the shortest path through bone while minimizing damage to roots of neighboring teeth.

The attendees will learn about:
1. The use of CBCT in refining the diagnosis of impacted and transposed teeth.
2. Defining 3-D treatment plans, surgical access, bond placement and biomechanical objectives for impacted and transposed teeth.
3. Designing and implementing optimal traction auxiliaries for 3-D tooth control while minimizing damage to neighboring teeth and adverse movements of anchor teeth.

Working Posture for the Dental Office: Part 1

ADA NSW Centre for Professional Development

Speaker: Dr Penelope A. JonesSydney, Australia

Format: Lecture31 Mar 2017

09:00 - 12:30
Duration: 3 hrs

Category
General Dentistry

Description
There is no doubt that Dentistry is a very challenging profession. We work sitting down all day, in a confined space in a physically demanding position. Often its an emotionally charged environment and on people who for the most part, would like to be somewhere else. It is a recipe for STRESS!! Most of us have never been taught how to sit well and we often end up either tired, in pain or “crippled” at the end of our day.
This course has been designed specifically for all members of the dental team. While working in Endodontics for over 25 years, Dr Jones knows what problems the team experience and has found successful innovative techniques to not only undo the damage already done, but has created a successful program to prevent work related injuries in the first place.

Course Topics
- The anatomy of good posture from a functional perspective. What organisation of muscles contributes to best posture
- How spiral movement is more efficient in creating support than other older models of biomechanics
- How to use pelvis and “integrated core” as foundation for strong, flexible, balanced trunk in all the difficult things we need to do in the dental office
- Efficient practical sitting, turning, getting up and down from chair for all members of the dental team
- How to sit to maximise benefits of using loupes and microscope
Learning Objectives
- Recapture enjoyment of your body again while you work, that ease and flexibility of much earlier days
- Apply awareness and neuroplasticity of the nervous system to dismantle old bad postural habits and replace them with new ways that are more efficient biomechanically
- Recognise the neuromuscular basis for work injury, pain and discomfort specific to the dental office and demonstrate how to reverse and prevent this damage. Identify and in a practical way dismantle your own particular unique patterns of holding tension
- Reawaken your bodily wisdom (proprioception), something that stress has diminished in us and that has been scientifically demonstrated to be a key imperative in recovering from chronic pain and dysfunction
- Activate new easy patterns of sitting, turning etc using spiral patterns that have been shown to be functionally more efficient and natural. Create new good habits of movement and balance as you work

By addressing our bad postural habits this program can not only reverse some of the damage already done in the dental office but can prevent getting into trouble in the first place. It also has the added advantage of creating flexibility to improve your sports and fitness activities and help you come back to enjoying your body and grow old gracefully.

Dentists are encouraged to attend this course with their nurse.

Dr Penelope A. Jones
Dr Penelope Jones practiced in an Endodontic Practice in Sydney for over 25 years after having been in General Practice in Sydney, Leeton and London for some years.

In 1992, she completed four years of training to become a Feldenkrais Practitioner and Teacher at La Trobe University’s Lincoln Institute of Health Sciences in Melbourne.

Her dental experience taught her what trials and difficulties Dentists and their staff can suffer. In the early days of practicing Dentistry she experienced serious ongoing pain herself almost to the point of having to retire.

The Feldenkrais Method became a tool for her to help herself and to begin to understand why Dentists and other seated workers have so many problems. The Method is excellent for addressing the fact that many of our problems come from bad postural habits. She has found successful innovative techniques to not only undo the damage already done, but has created a successful program to prevent work related injuries in the first place.

Speaker: Dr Michael MandikosSydney, Australia

Format: Hands On, Lecture31 Mar 2017

09:00 - 16:30
Duration: 6.5 hrs

Category
General Dentistry, Restorative Dentistry

Description
Beginning with a lecture covering the relevant physical properties required of composites to be used for restoring anterior teeth, this one-day program explores the concepts of colour as they relate to tooth shade selection. As there are presently so many options on the market, the importance of opacity/translucency as distinct from colour alone will be explained to assist participants in selecting composite systems for use in their own practices.

Finally, the multi-layered approach to restoring anterior teeth using varying opacitie of composites will be demonstrated together with simplified techniques for build-up, finishing and polishing.

The practical exercises in this program will give participants the opportunity to restore typodont teeth utilising a multi-shaded, aesthetic composite system and the layering techniques presented in the lecture.

Course Topics
- Current composite resin technologies and systems designed for aesthetic, single and multi-layered build-up techniques
- Shade selection - understanding colour and teeth
- A simplified approach to multi-layered anterior composite restorations
- Finishing and polishing techniques for microfill, microhybrid, and nanocomposites
- Can composite resins restore adequate function and aesthetics?
- Indications for choosing between composite and ceramics
- Are composite restorations cost-effective for the patient and the dentist?
- Clinical examples to illustrate techniques for easier practice

At the completion of the program, attendees should have a greater understanding of the newer composite technologies available to achieve excellent aesthetic and functional results when restoring anterior teeth.

Fibre Reinforced Composite Resin Bridges

ADA NSW Centre for Professional Development

Speaker: Professor Ian MeyersSydney, Australia

Format: Hands On, Lecture 6 Apr 2017

09:00 - 16:30
Duration: 6.5 hrs

Category
General Dentistry, Restorative Dentistry

Description
The introduction of resin impregnated glass fibre reinforcing materials has made the construction and bonding of direct fibre-reinforced composite resin bridges much easier and more predictable than previous reinforcing materials. These newer materials combine simplicity of use, good aesthetics, high fracture toughness, and a minimally invasive treatment approach, thereby providing the clinician with viable treatment options for patients with missing teeth. The most significant advantages for patients relate to cost effectiveness, conservation of tooth structure and reduced treatment time in comparison with other complex restorative procedures. Fibre-reinforced bridges can be very successful in replacing missing anterior or posterior teeth, either as a short term solution or for longer term aesthetics and function. Bridges can be constructed directly in the mouth, fabricated chair-side or pre-made in the laboratory providing great flexibility in techniques available.

This course will provide clinical information and a ‘hands-on’ experience with resin impregnated fibre reinforcing materials combined with a range of aesthetic and high strength composite resins. Techniques for creating aesthetic anterior and fully functional posterior fibre reinforced bridges will be discussed and demonstrated. Participants will be able to experience using the various fibre reinforced materials and will undertake construction of direct and semi-direct bridges. Materials handling and clinical hints and tips will be highlighted to assist in ensuring successful patient outcomes.


Topics include
- Fibre reinforced composites – material types and indications for use
- Case selection, treatment options and clinical techniques
- Using aesthetic composites and layering with anterior fibre reinforced bridges
- Creating high strength, aesthetic and functional posterior fibre reinforced composite resin bridges
- Hands-on construction techniques
- Longevity and maintenance of restorations


Learning Objectives
- Understanding advantages and disadvantages of different resin reinforcing materials
- Develop skills in handling reinforcing fibres with different composite resin materials
- Undertake construction of anterior and posterior resin reinforced composite resin bridges
- Learn direct, semi-direct and indirect techniques for restoration
- Layering for maximum aesthetics

Managing the Worn Dentition - More than Restoration

ADA NSW Centre for Professional Development

Speaker: Professor Ian MeyersSydney, Australia

Format: Lecture 7 Apr 2017

09:00 - 16:30
Duration: 6.5 hrs

Category
General Dentistry, Restorative Dentistry

Description
What strategies are required as patients and their restored dentitions age?

Restoration of an extensively worn or badly broken down dentition can be complex, costly and Time
consuming to implement. Because of its complexity and cost, this treatment is often delayed until it becomes essential.

Dentists (and patients!) want to stop the repeat restoration cycle and its ongoing costly restorative burden. So how do we treat the patient with a severely broken down dentition?
Through lectures, clinical demonstrations and participation exercises, Professor Meyers will present four steps to restorative success:

Clinical evaluation of patients
- Review of a number of patient cases
- Risk assessment tools
- Impact of patient’s health and lifestyle
- Correct treatment planning prior to restoration

Oral environment
- How dry mouth and salivary acidity correlates with severe tooth wear and non-carious tooth surface loss
- Examination requirements, salivary analysis and remineralisation strategies
- Stabilisation of the oral environment and risk reduction prior to restoration

New materials and techniques
- How to evaluate the range of materials and techniques available for cost-effective and conservative management and aesthetics
- Step by step procedures (using a range of materials) to allow participants to compare the various materials and techniques for direct and semi-direct restorations

Practical experience
- Demonstration and participant simulation exercises covering techniques for the restoration of the worn dentition; including direct restorative techniques, laboratory procedures, direct, semi-direct and indirect adhesive technologies

The aim of this one day course will be the introduction of some new concepts in access and preparation and discussion of the chemo-mechanical cleaning of the entire root canal system . There will be many useful take home gems that can be incorporated in your surgery endodontic routine. The course will be presented with interactive seminar styled case based lectures and hands on components using natural and True Teeth models.

During this program practitioners will learn:
- Thinking in 3D and what CBCT brings to Endodontics
- Anatomy directed access concepts with dentine preservation strategies. Discussion of burs and instruments required to achieve this.
- Learn accurate methods of working length determination using different methods with an emphasis on the electronic apex locator.
- Describe irrigation protocols based on current concepts of endodontic microbiology
- Biologically based root can preparation and introduction to Reciprocating TFA files

Description
This two day introductory course in botulinum toxin and dermal fillers will cover foundation principles eg. facial anatomy, the science of facial ageing, facial aesthetics, the science and pharmacology of the products being used, basic indications and injection techniques, complications, prevention and management - in the form of didactic training/lectures.

The demonstration of surface and applied anatomy, product management and injection techniques will be in the form of hands-on training. A full variety of products available on the market will be discussed. The use of the products outside the approved indications will not be covered. It will be necessary to pass a written exam before moving onto the hands-on component of the course.


Topics include
Using common “cosmetic injectable products” in a safe, efficacious manner within the scope of practice. Specifically: •Lower Face Anatomy
- Physiology of Ageing with respect to the lower face
- Pharmacology of botulinum toxins and filler
- Consent and pre-treatment
- Injecting techniques
- Understanding, preventing and managing complications


Learning Objectives
To safely and successfully incorporate botulinum toxin and filler treatments into the dentists current scope of practice: effectively, efficiently, and within the confines of the law.

The smile is the universal expression able to convert and show off our emotions, disarm and welcome. It is often said that the eyes are the windows to the soul, but the smile is the door.

As we age, the structures of the lower face start changing due to a range of activities: •The bones start to resorb and reduce over time
- The teeth change in colour and size
- The gums start to reduce in size
- The muscles around the mouth become stronger
- The muscles of chewing become bigger and bulkier
- Fat pads move and either become bigger or smaller, and
- The skin itself becomes thinner and our lips start reducing in size and shape

To Prep or Not to Prep - Predictable, Minimally-Invasive Guidelines for Modern Direct and Indirect Restorations

Ivoclar Vivadent

Speaker: Dr Clarence TamAuckland

Format: Other29 Apr 2017

08:30 - 17:00
Duration: 7 hrs

Category
Dental Education, Restorative Dentistry

Description
The ability for the modern clinician to decipher and distinguish which materials will work best in a given situation is often driven by a balance between cost and residual tooth structure. Using the science, how can we design the direct restoration to withstand masticatory pressures without subjecting it to premature failure? How can we achieve this with reduction of the minimal amount of tooth structure? Is less reduction better or worse? Is minimally-invasive dentistry just a table top restoration with a bonded porcelain onlay on top? Not always. When do we actually need to crown a tooth? What risks are we taking? Join us as we take a candid journey through various clinical situations that will reinforce what to do when you encounter a decision bump in the road. This lecture will enable snap-judgement diagnosis of a myriad of clinical situations ranging from veneers to onlays, and allow an opportunity for you to practice various preparations ahead of Monday morning.

Learning Outcomes:

1) The attendee will learn the difference between adhesively-retained and cohesively-retained restorations
2) The attendee will learn the point to transition an adhesively-retained restoration to a cohesively-retained restorations.
3) The attendee will learn various preparation designs pertaining to different presenting clinical situations.
4) The attendee will practice modern preparations and learn how to dial in the occlusion to minimize post-operative complications.

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.

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.

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.

Description
The replacement of posterior Class II amalgams has become the bread and butter of the modern dental practice. With the advent of modern bonding adhesives as well as bulk fill materials, do we have clear guidelines on what to use, how to use it and when? Is there a compromise to speed? In this day and age, patients are increasingly demanding about the esthetics not only with anterior direct restorations, but also posterior. Learn how to lift your game in posterior direct composite esthetics and build your practice with techniques that are not only efficient, but will extend the success and prognosis of your direct restorations. Love your everyday dentistry like I do.

Learning Objectives:

1) The attendee will review the fundamentals in case assessment and suitability for layered posterior composite restorations
2) The attendee will learn how to recreate missing cusps efficiently in a controlled, predictable fashion using a putty stent derived from a diagnostic wax-up/mock-up or pre-operative situation.
3) The attendee will learn two techniques to incorporate maverick staining or tinting in the posterior region using Empress Direct Color Stains.
4) The attendee will learn how to layer posterior Class I and II restorations to achieve minimal C-Factor influences and excellent chameleon effect.
5) The attendee will learn the fundamentals of "how to make a fissure look like a fissure."

Mastering Difficult Interactions

Dental Protection

Speaker: Dexter BamberyWellington

Format: Lecture 9 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.

Format: Hands On, Lecture10 May 2017

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.

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.

Format: Lecture13 May 2017

12:00 - 15:00
Duration: 3 hrs

Category
General 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: Dr Kenneth MalamentChristchurch

Format: Lecture23 May 2017

08:45 - 16:15
Duration: 6 hrs

Category
Prosthodontics

Description
There is an ever increasing range of materials and techniques available in clinical practice and because of this, dentists can offer more treatment options for patient’s complex functional and aesthetic needs.

Understanding the methods and materials to manage simple and complex restorative issues are critical to improving patient satisfaction and clinical outcomes. Given the plethora of materials and techniques how does the dentist decide which options to present to the patient?

What options will provide the best long-term, functional and alethic outcomes for the patient? In this seminar Dr Malament will use the evidence base to discuss a range of materials and techniques which will make this decision making both easier and more robust.

Learning objectives
– To understand what factors and concerns a dentist would have treating patients that require “aesthetic procedures”.
– To understand the controversies that exists with modern dental materials.
– To understand what clinical factors impact on long term survival of dental ceramic materials.
– To understand the restoration of dental implants in complex conditions.

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.

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.

- 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.

08:00 - 17:00
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.

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.

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

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

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.


Speaker
Dr Eric Lowenhaupt
Dr Eric B. Lowenhaupt, D.D.S. attended Florida State University for undergraduate studies and Emory University in Atlanta for his Dental and Orthodontic training.

Duration: 7 hrs

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
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

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.

Infection Control Management in Dental Practice

ADA NSW Centre for Professional Development

Speaker: Dr John Fahey and Kylie RobbSydney, Australia

Format: Hands On, Lecture29 Jul 2017

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.

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.


Speaker
Professor David Manton and Dr Philippa Sawyer
Professor David Manton
Graduated BDSc (Melb) in 1984 and worked in general practice until 1991 when he undertook an MDSc in Paediatric Dentistry. He was dental advisor to the Federal Government from 1994 – 1996 and won the KG Sutherland Prize of the RACDS in 2007. David is currently the Elsdon Storey Chair of Child Dental Health and heads the section of Growth and Development at The University of Melbourne and is involved in several collaborative and postgraduate research projects in both paediatric dentistry and orthodontics. He is on the editorial boards of the European Archives on Paediatric Dentistry and the International Journal of Paediatric Dentistry, and the advisory panel of ORCA.

David has spoken throughout Australia, Asia and Europe and has wide ranging experience in laboratory and clinical trials of CPP-ACP, Minimum Intervention Dentistry and the detection of caries. 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.

Format: Hands On, Lecture11 Aug 2017

09:00 - 16:00
Duration: 6 hrs

Category
Endodontics, General Dentistry

Description
Do you want to use the most modern techniques and materials? Do you want to treat teeth that last longer?
This course is designed to give the skilled general practitioner the knowledge, materials and techniques to complete endodontic treatment to the highest possible standard and will be kept small to ensure a personalised experience for participants.

This program will be limited to a small group to ensure open communication during the course and better value for participants.

Topics include
•Identifying the right tooth. Complex diagnostic scenarios: cracked teeth and myofascial pain.
•An introduction to the new concept of “Minimally Invasive Endodontics” and an evidence-based evaluation of the risks and benefits of MIE. Techniques to employ in practice to extend the life of endodontically treated teeth.
•An Australian first: exposure to the latest advances in NiTi technology - beyond heat- treated NiTi. A look at the advances in nickel titanium instrumentation with a focus on the advantages of utilising the latest NiTi alloys
•Learn to customise canal preparation specific to canal morphologies – one size and technique does not fit all – take your knowledge to the next level. Do you fracture instruments? Negotiate complex anatomy the way endodontists can: ledges, aggressive curvatures, S-bends whilst minimising the risks of fractures. Practical session with EDM NiTi files
•A look at the major tooth-threatening iatrogenic errors: fractured instruments and perforations and preventing such mistakes. A focus on communication with the patient when complications occur. Understanding when those complications will be disastrous to outcome and when they will not
•Advances in obturation techniques and new sealer technology. Practical session
•What is the “new” ideal standard of care and what can general dental practitioners do to achieve it?
•Restoration of root-filled teeth. Are crowns always necessary? A look at recent literature about the use of posts in root-filled teeth and to assist in selecting the appropriate type of post

Learning Objectives
•Understanding the limitations and advantages minimally invasive endodontics and implementing “orifice directed access” in your practice
•Utilise the latest NiTi technology to achieve specific canal-appropriate instrumentation with reduced risk of iatrogenic errors
•Ability to obturate with modern techniques and sealers
•Advanced knowledge of conservative restoration of root-filled teeth

Other Information
This course requires practitioners to collect extracted posterior teeth. Practitioners are also encouraged to bring their loupes on the day. Further details will be provided upon registering.

Description
When it’s done right, having a hygienist or therapist can be a great support to your practice, but it can also be fraught with cancellations and no-shows.

Create systems and procedures to:
• Introduce a hygienist into the practice;
• Ensure patients understand benefits of utilising the hygienist/therapist;
• Maximise the value of the periodic hygiene visit;
• Calculate the number of hygiene days required;
• Align dentist and hygienist or therapist philosophies and diagnoses;
• Increase patient participation in the active maintenance programme.

Communicate in order to:
• Ensure the entire team can support the hygienist or therapist and raise their profile in the patients’ eyes;
• Use Primespeak tools to turn each patient into a devoted fan and get the patient to own their oral health problems

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.

The Role of the Dentist in Disaster Management and Identification

ADA NSW Centre for Professional Development

Speaker: NSW Forensic Education CommitteeSydney, Australia

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
