Managing Adverse Outcomes

Friday, April 25, 9:00 am, 2014

MAOAP180      Lecture-1/2 day   Category 1    MCDE: 3    AGD Code: 550    3 hours 

Location:  WOODSTOCK, Pow Laboratories, 63 Ridgeway Circle, N4S 0B1 (lunch & breaks incl.)

Instructors:Lionel LENKINSKI, DDS, Cert. Endo; Bruce GLAZER, DDS, BScD, Dip. Pros.

Time:  9:00am - 12 Noon

PROGRAM OUTLINE:
Adverse outcomes take many forms, from serious morbidity following treatment to unmet patient expectations in cosmetic procedures. They know no boundaries, and are common to all aspects specialities and modalities of dental treatment. The lecture will begin by defining adverse outcomes with clinical examples, and move into the prevention and management strategies.  The intent is to minimize the impact of these events to both the practitioner and patient.  The seed for an adverse event or outcome may be present even prior to the patient presenting themselves in your office and can occur during or after treatment.  The presentation will highlight informed consent, post treatment management communication, and documentation stategies.  The requirements under the Regulated Health Professions Act “RHPA”, prevailing court jurisprudence will be discussed, as will the appropriate use of the Apology Act.  These adverse events can lead to patient loss, RCDSO complaints and lawsuits.  Further, the new paradigm, one of ‘shared decision-making”, “informed consent” and “informed refusal” will form a part of this session.  The necessity of appropriate follow up care, referral and disclosure will be highlighted.  Dentists should become well versed in these principles in order to survive in today’s increasingly difficult practice environment.

PROGRAM OBJECTIVES:
Upon completion of this session the participants will be better able to:

• Understand the need for appropriate communication strategies
• Become aware of the perils of using “Grey Market” dental materials and unlicensed or offshore dental laboratories
• Know the principles of informed consent and informed refusal
• Understand why documentation and disclosure ae required
• Realize why appropriate after hours care and availability will resolve many patient issues with post treatment problems
• Effectively appropriate referral strategies to minimize their risk
• Develop pre-emptive and reactive solutions to most adverse events

FIXED PROSTHODONTICS; DIGITAL WORKFLOW IN DENTAL OFFICE WITH EMPHASIS ON IMPRESSIONS + SELECTION OF DENTAL CEMENTS

DIGIMP157      Lecture     Category 2      MCDE 6        AGD Code: 670        6Hours

Location: WOODSTOCK, ON, Pow Laboratories

Instructor:  Najeeb SAAD, BDS, C.Prosth.

PROGRAM OUTLINE:
As digital dental technology is developing it is constantly providing the practitioner with new innovations. In the field of Prosthodontics digital innovations are providing the practitioner with newer methods to practice. For the modern dental practice to take advantage of the digital options available integration and selection of these technologies will become critical in the future.

In the area of dental impressions conventional impression taking methods are now slowly giving way to digital impression techniques. Clinical practitioners have various options available with respect to taking impressions; these include Digital impression systems, such as the Lava Chairside Oral Scanner by 3M, the CEREC AC by Sirona, TRIOS by 3Shape and the Cadent iTero system among others. These systems are used to take a digital "impression" of the teeth instead of conventional chairside materials. The digital workflow and impressions have significantly helped the dentist and labs to establish a more efficient process and the patient to avoid the whole impression taking experience which most people perceive as unpleasant.

In addition, there are now many more choices in systems to use as well as cements for luting of the final restoration. Which one is the right one to choose?

PROGRAM OBJECTIVES:
• A layout of the digital workflow and a review of what equipment, including hardware and software, is necessary to fulfill the requirements of a modern digital dental practice.

• An overview of dental impression taking systems available to dental practitioners.

• An overview of the wide variety of dental cements and systems available to dental practitioners.

• Hands on experience with an oral scanner and software system designed to make a difference in your practice.

• Hands on experience with different cement systems.

MODERATE CONSCIOUS SEDATION: Nitrous Oxide, Oxygen & Oral Sedation ~ Certification Program

Friday, November 7, 9:00 am — Saturday, November 8, 4:30 pm, 2014

N20NOV166    Hands-on   Category 2  MCDE: 15     AGD Code: 132     14 Hours

Location:  TORONTO, ON   Toronto Cricket Club (Friday) & Sleep for Dentistry (Saturday)

Instructors:  Peter NKANSAH, B.Sc.(Hon.), M.Sc., DDS, Dip. Anaes., FADSA

Michelle TANG, B.Sc., M.Sc., DDS, Dip. Anaes., FADSA, Diplomate, American Dental Board of Anesthesiology 

PROGRAM OUTLINE: 

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.

PROGRAM OBJECTIVES:

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
  • Monitoring
  • Respiratory physiology
  • RCDSO Guidelines
  • Each participant will get experience in the clinical application of nitrous oxide sedation.

The Medically Compromised Patient

Friday, November 14, 9:00 am — 12:00 pm, 2014

Controversial Issues on the Management of Medically Complex Patients

MEDCOM167   Lecture     Category 2   MCDE: 3      AGD Code: 750      3 Hours

Location: LONDON, ON,  Ivey Spencer Leadership Centre 

Instructor:  Joel J. NAPENAS, DDS, FDSRCS

PROGRAM OUTLINE:

The treatment of medically complex patients is an everyday occurrence in many dental practices.  Providers and care givers frequently encounter unanswered questions regarding the management of these patients.  Much confusion and dogma persists with respect to the guidelines and literature (e.g.:  publications and textbooks), and what is taught at training institutions (e.g.:  dental schools, post-graduate training programs), as they are often consensus based, at best and not necessarily evidence-based.
The purpose of this course is to provide an evidence-based review of issues concerning the dental management of medically complex patients.  Topics to be covered include, but are not limited to the dental management of patients with:  cardiovascular diseases (which includes patients on antithrombotic therapy, and those who require antibiotic prophylaxis); liver disease; prosthetic joints; systemic steroid therapy and; on drugs that may cause osteonecrosis of the jaw.


PROGRAM OBJECTIVES:

This course will enable the participant to:

  •  Review the principles to identify medically complex patients with thorough history taking, examination and appropriate evaluation, and interpretation of diagnostic medical tests or studies.
  • Understand the impact of various medical conditions in the provision of dental care.
  • Understand the role of the dental practitioner in managing these conditions.
  • Review and critique the latest literature and evidence pertaining to the latest guidelines and standard of care.
