From what is expected to what is exceptional—the difference of legendary implant services in your office

Lecture

We must regain prospective about the reality of today’s dental implant market. Most clinicians today, including most implant practices, do not have a clinical competency problem. They have a communication and focus problem. While innovations in implant therapy, practice design and implementing different technologies will always be important, nothing comes closer than Quality of Patient Experience for increasing the case acceptance rate in an implant practice. You have to learn to “treat patients, not just replacing their missing teeth”. There is a big difference between treating a patient vs. replacing missing teeth. There's a huge gap here, and we can't expect dentists to learn how to provide legendary implant services in their offices 'on the go.’ To address this issue, The American Institute of Implant Dentistry has teamed up with the Ritz Carlton Leadership Center. Together they customized the Ritz's unique and successful methodology and introduced the Legendary Implant Services concept. During this presentation, Dr. Shafie will preview the methodology and philosophy of engaging the entire team as crucial elements of creating a successful culture and an upscale implant practice.

Cost: USD 95

Photography and dentistry—a comprehensive workshop

Lecture/Hands-on
sold
out

Over the past two decades, the advent and maturation of digital photography and its associated workflows has been widely adopted in dentistry. Digital photography provides clinicians with a unique and powerful tool that can rapidly aid in diagnosis and treatment planning, enhance patient and interdisciplinary communication, serve as a medico-legal record, and facilitate documentation for educational, scholarly or promotional uses. In order to maximize the benefits that digital photography can bring to one’s practice, it is incumbent on the clinician to become proficient and comfortable with operating digital photographic equipment. This course will provide a didactic, general overview of digital photography and its applications within dentistry for both surgical and prosthetic applications. Participants will also have the opportunity to practice with different patient photographic setups, retraction methods, and protocols for troubleshooting challenging clinical photographic scenarios.

Objectives:
  1. Understand principles of digital photography, contemporary equipment options, and the advantages that this tool can have in your practice’s workflow.
  2. Discuss protocols for leveraging surgical and restorative digital documentation to facilitate improved interdisciplinary and patient communication, serve as a medico-legal record of treatment, and promotion of clinical achievements for educational, scholarly, or practice management purposes.
  3. Complete a hands-on workshop that will enable the participant to execute various clinical photographic protocols.
Cost: USD 145

Evolution on dental implant therapy—achieving superior functional and esthetic results with a sloped implant

Lecture/Hands-on

The success of an implant treatment is defined not only by function, but also by esthetics and the maintenance of peri-implant health. Much of this success is a function of how the surrounding hard and soft tissues are constructed and maintained following placement of the implant and the supported restoration. While a properly planned surgical approach is critical, the design of the implant design plays a critical role for achieving predictable results.

This program will focus on surgical and restorative protocols for implant placement in extraction and healed sites, utilizing an innovative-sloped implant design. The program will illustrate with science and clinical case presentations, the impact of design on esthetic outcomes along with the maintenance of form and function.

A table clinic will provide hands on experience with surgical and restorative components and protocols along with the use of PerioDerm as an enhancement to the soft tissue contour for maximum esthetic outcomes.

At the completion of this course, participants will be able to:
  1. Understand the different surgical and restorative approaches to healed and extraction sites when placing implants in the esthetic zone.
  2. Recognize the role of the OsseoSpeed Profile EV Implant and how it relates to longevity in successful implant therapy.
  3. Understand the rationale for provisional and permanent prosthetic abutment selection.

Partnering for health and well-being

08.00 AM - 09.30 AM

In broad terms, health can be looked at as something that is more than just the absence of disease. Healthy living consists of a good diet and physical exercise, but a happy and healthy life is also influenced by the individual balance that we achieve, and by finding comfort and joy in our social environment.

A key aspect of health is realized when we can eat, speak and smile with confidence. As a dental professional who provides implant care, you can make a significant difference for your edentulous patients by restoring function and esthetics. Together, let us examine the possibilities in our partnership and commitment to improved health, well-being – and overall quality of life.

Coffee break

09.30 AM - 10.00 AM

Individualized protocols for patient-centered outcomes

10.00 AM - 11.30 AM

At the infancy of implant dentistry, there was a one-size-fit-all approach to treatment. With advancements in technology and clinical protocols, patients today, are able to receive solutions that are as unique as they are. But does such an individualized approach also mean an increase in complexity? Or can digital processes and new procedures help to simplify and streamline workflows so that optimal, patient-centered outcomes can be achieved without compromise to quality?

Practice success with the patient in focus

10.00 AM - 11.30 AM

What are the key factors that can make a difference in the development of a dental practice? A successful practice is the result of happy and satisfied patients. But the culture of happiness, communication and collaboration must begin in the practice among the clinician and all members of the team.

Lunch & poster presentation

11.30 AM - 1.00 PM

Life restored—solutions for the fully edentulous patient

1.00 PM - 3.00 PM

There is a variety of solutions designed to meet the individual needs of fully edentulous patients. These options take into account clinical situations, financial requirements and patients’ expectations. Despite the different considerations and final method of treatment selected, what remains the same is the goal of restored ability for patients to eat, speak and smile with confidence.

Coffee break

3.00 PM - 3.30 PM

Inspiration talks—precision speaks for itself

3.30 PM - 5.30 PM

Precision is a word that creates expectations for both clinicians and patients. However, both predictable outcomes and happy patients can be a reality as a result of successful implementation of a precisely outlined diagnosis and treatment planning.

Digital and analog processes and the tools that support treatment must be therefore precisely engineered and continuously evaluated to ensure the maintained level of accuracy that clinicians and patients desire. Precision speaks for itself throughout the treatment process and when its long-term impact on treatment care is understood.

Evening event

7.00 PM - 11.00 PM

Join us at the Coasterra on the San Diego Bayfront for a memorable evening with friends and colleagues. Revel in the amazing view, the beautiful sunset, and the delectable food and drink while enjoying the evening’s entertainment.

May 13

Digital blueprint−beginning from the end

8.00 AM - 09.45 AM

Let’s begin at the end. With digital dentistry, we can! It allows us to define the final desired result and to plan the treatment needed to achieve it. Digital connectivity lends to expanded solutions and the ability to provide treatment to more patients – all while starting with the end result in mind.

Creating a sound biological foundation

8.00 AM - 09.45 AM

When the host body alone does not provide enough support, different biomaterials with different characteristics and “tasks,” play an important role in the preparation of an implant site. For both simple and complex implant cases, the building of, and ability to maintain a solid biological foundation can contribute to the long-term, cost-effectiveness and efficiency of the overall treatment outcome.

Coffee break

09.45 AM - 10.15 AM

Outlook on a bright future

10.15 AM - 12.00 PM

The statement, “beauty is in the eye of the beholder,” implies that the perception of beauty is subjective. The outlook on the future of implant dentistry is full of unexplored possibilities and new opportunities for patients and clinicians.

Today, dental implant treatment is already making a huge difference for millions of people in their physical and emotional well-being. New solutions and possibilities designed to further improve the treatment process and outcomes continue to be developed and introduced. With a deeper understanding of patient desires and the increasing ability to meet or even exceed those, patients are happier. As a dental professional, you can be proud of the stories of inspiration that you are helping to create and the improved quality of life that you contribute to each day.

Together, let’s make the future brighter.
