ENDODONTICS ~ Take it to the Next Level!
ENDOSUD1318 Hands-on Category 2 MCDE: 9 AGD Code: 070 7 Hours
Instructor: Manfred Friedman, BDS, ECHD(hon)
This course is designed for clinicians who are currently using rotary instruments in their practice and will cover advanced endodontics on difficult teeth, with emphasis on complete cleaning and filling of the root canal system. The new "single file" technique for shaping the canal system will be presented. In addition, new technologies for cleaning will be discussed including, sonic and ultrasonic activation of irrigants, vacuum assisted irrigation, and light activated irrigants.
Having attended the course, the participant will be able to manage the acutely curved canal with rotary instruments. Access design and modifications will be discussed to optimize performance of nickle titanium instruments. Emphasis will be placed on the management of the apical third of the root. Both warm vertical and Gutta core obturation techniques will be covered. The uses of Mineral Trioxide Aggregate (MTA) will be covered including apicotomy perforation repairs and direct pulp capping.
Participants will be preparing the canals with the "Wave 1” reciprocating instrument and will complete the obturations with Gutta Core the new cross linked gutta percha carrier.
NOTE: All participants will be required to bring at least six (6) teeth with access openings and a working length x-ray. This course is designed and recommended for those with previous rotary Endodontics experience, but will also be relevant for the dentist who is still "hand filing". Wisdom teeth and orthodontic extractions are not valuable for these exercises.

Medical Emergencies in the Dental Office & Advanced Local Anaesthesia! What You Need to Know!
MEDEMERG1319 Lecture Category 1 MCDE: 6 AGD Code: 142 7 Hours
Location: NIAGARA ON THE LAKE
Instructor: David ISEN, B.Sc., D.D.S.
THIS COURSE IS SUITABLE FOR DENTISTS, ASSISTANTS, HYGIENISTS AND RN’S.
ADVANCED LOCAL ANAESTHESIA - TRIED & TRUE AND WHAT'S NEW!
Program Overview: Over the past century, local anaesthetics and their delivery systems have evolved and improved significantly. Despite these advances however, our ability to obtain profound anaesthesia 100% of the time is elusive, especially in the mandible. These situations can create painful dental visits for our patients creating anxiety for not only them but for the operator as well.
Program Objectives: This seminar will explore the reasons and remedies for incomplete local anaesthesia. A discussion of the anatomical and pharmacological reasons for incomplete anaesthesia will be presented. Techniques beyond the inferior alveolar nerve block and products to supplement the needle and syringe will be evaluated. Some of the topics to be explored include the Gow-Gates Block; articaine; intraosseous and PDL injections; methods of pain reduction during injections and local anaesthetic drug interactions and related emergencies. Also, a review of new products such as non-injectable local anaesthesia and local anaesthetic reversal agents will be presented.
MEDICAL EMERGENCIES IN THE DENTAL OFFICE
Program Overview: As dental practitioners, we and our team must be continually prepared to effectively treat a medical emergency. Our patients rely on this. However, this may lead to a difficult predicament because thankfully, dentists encounter medical emergencies infrequently. We therefore may not be proficient in handling emergencies. Without practice and preparedness, it is difficult to recall specific steps involved in a particular emergency.
Program Objectives: This course will begin by looking at ways to avoid a medical emergency from occurring in the first place. Vital sign and medical assessment will be presented. As well, the most recent guidelines for basic life support response will be shown along with a discussion regarding how and when to use the six medical emergency drugs required by dentists to stock in their office. Finally, ways to organize a medical emergency kit so that even months down the road, emergency response is not as difficult, will be presented.

Oral Pathology & Oral Medicine, Review & Update
ORLPATHMED1322 Lecture Category 1 MCDE: 6 AGD Code: 730 7 Hours
Location: BARRIE, Image Dental Laboratories
Tom DALEY, BSc, DDS, MSc, FAAOP, ABDP, FRCD(C)
Mark DARLING, MSc (Dent), MSc (Exp. Oral Path.), M.ChD. (Oral Pathology)
There has never been a greater sense of urgency to adhere to close examination of the oral cavity for early discovery of mucosal abnormalities. This course will include clinical recognition, diagnostic procedures, and treatment suggestions for common or important oral diseases including oral cancer, oral infectious/inflammatory diseases, mucocutaneous diseases and oral cysts.
The course material will be clinically oriented, including the appearance of alterations in mucous membranes, which will permit a logical differential diagnosis of white, red, nodular and blistering lesions. Radiographic changes will also be discussed for lesions affecting bone. This course will review the performance of a comprehensive extraoral and intraoral examination. The supportive role and critical responsibility of the dental professional is an integral component of early discovery. Discover how our profession is positioned strategically to make a powerful impact on oral diseases. Early discovery is the key!
The objective of the course is to allow participants to review, update, and understand oral diseases beyond dental caries and periodontal conditions.
Moderate Conscious Sedation: Nitrous Oxide and Oral Sedation
N2ONOV1323 Hands-on Category 2 MCDE:16 AGD Code: 132 14 Hours
Location: TORONTO Day 1: Westin Prince Hotel Day 2: Sleep for Dentistry
Peter NKANSAH, B.Sc.(Hon.), M.Sc., DDS, Dip. Anaes., FADSA, Cert. Specialist in Dental Anaesthesia (Ontario)
Michelle TANG, B.Sc., M.Sc., DDS, Dip. Anaes., FADSA, Diplomate, American Dental Board of Anesthesiology
This two-day program will involve both seminar and hands-on sessions, with a written exam on the second day for certification by the RCDSO.
It has been estimated that approximately 80% of the population exhibits a degree of dental anxiety. Some studies have indicated that 20% of people have severe dental phobia. Because dental anxiety exists in a large number of our patients, it is incumbent upon us to do everything we can to alleviate anxiety. Once we are able to ease the anxiousness that accompanies a dental visit, we are then increasing the likelihood of return visits and thereby enhancing the oral health of our patients. As well, the relief of patient anxiety will drastically decrease the occurrence of medical emergencies in our offices since there is a direct relationship between increased dental stress and the chance of a medical emergency.
There are a number of stress reduction techniques in dentistry available to us today. Few, if any carry the advantages that nitrous oxide does. This course will explore the technique of nitrous oxide and oxygen conscious sedation. Dentists will leave this course with the knowledge of how to incorporate nitrous oxide and oxygen into their practice, and how to administer it safely.
Course content includes a review of:
• Moderate Conscious Sedation
• Oral sedative pharmacology
• Oral sedation regimens
• Nitrous oxide pharmacology
• Nitrous oxide equipment and administration
• Respiratory physiology
• RCDSO Guidelines
