with Guest Speaker: Dr. Kathryn Alderman

Recorded June 11th, 2019

1.0 CE credit

Read More...
Webinar course objective and description:
Traditionally in dentistry, we have been taught to ask our patients to brush, floss and visit us twice a year for checkups to stay healthy. In the last few years we have been hearing that by fixing dental problems and specifically dental / gum disease, we can help patients to prevent major medical problems, such as heart disease, diabetes, thyroid conditions, and many other inflammatory-related conditions. It would be great to be able to help patients be healthier by fixing their dental/gum disease but is it possible?
In this webinar, you can find the latest research and answer the question: Does inflammation have a dental etiology or is inflammation indicative of systemic disease? What comes first, dental/gum disease or an inflammatory-related medical condition?
Learning objectives for this webinar:
-Understanding the Principals for Living Longer & Better
-Understanding the science of inflammatory-related medical conditions
-Understanding that Periodontal disease is an inflammatory-related condition
-Understanding what is Microbiome and how it is connected to overall health
-Understanding the Oral-Systemic Link Explained: Inflammation, Microbiome, and Gum disease treatment
-Understanding how to help patients to improve their microbiome and put gum disease in remission

Oxygen is Key: Manipulating the Microbial Ecology for Health and Healing

with Guest Speaker: Tanya Dunlap, PhD

Date: July 11th, 2019 at 8PM CST

1.0 CE Credit

Read More...
Most periodontal patients struggle between office visits, and it’s no wonder why. Toothbrush, rinse and floss don’t reach past 3mm. Break the cycle of gingival inflammation and disease with the power of oxygen delivered deep into periodontal pockets via a prescription tray. If you are frustrated by tissue that chronically bleeds, by patients who fearfully refuse treatment, or by ineffective homecare, then you want to attend this course. Scaling combined with prescription trays leads to better reductions in pocket depths and bleeding than scaling alone. Your patients need this help and they can only get it from you.

After completing this course you will understand:

-the benefits and limitations of antimicrobial and mechanical therapies for biofilm control.
-how and why antimicrobials with oxidative/reduction reactions effectively manage biofilms.
-how to incorporate localized antibiofilm therapies into existing treatment plans.
-how to help preserve the health of your implant, cosmetic, and restorative cases.

How to Incorporate Sleep in Your Practice, Effectively & Profitably

with Special Guest Speaker: Dr. Jamison Spencer

Recorded on August 6th, 2019

1.0 CE Credit

Read More...
It seems like you can’t go to any dental CE program today without someone bringing up sleep apnea and airway issues. This isn’t just some fad. The ADA even published recommendations in 2017 that all dentists should be screening their patients for possible sleep apnea. And sleep apnea has been connected to almost everything in dentistry from bruxism to periodontal disease to implant failures. But how do you actually incorporate sleep into your practice, and do so without messing up the rest of your practice?

In this webinar Dr. Spencer will discuss:
1. Why we should care about sleep disordered breathing in our patients (and in our loved ones)
2. How “second hand sleep apnea” might be effecting you personally
3. A simple approach to screening, diagnosis and treatment (that won’t end you up in prison or losing your license)
