Course Description:

As the prevalence of diabetes continues to increase in the United States, so too will the number of dental patients affected by the disease. Almost one third of our senior population will develop Diabetes. One out of three of these seniors will be undiagnosed. This lectures is specifically geared for the Dentist and Dental Hygienist.

This presentation addresses the relationship between oral health and diabetes and will discuss the practitioners role with management considerations for the patient with diabetes. An overview of diabetes will be discussed as well as its oral manifestations, consequences, and treatment recommendations.


The single tooth implant may be one of the most difficult challenges dentists face, with possible unforeseen outcomes. The past few years have brought a paradigm shift, as guidelines for the surgical and restorative approach have changed dramatically. Fine tune your workup to create a result that is as close to a natural replacement as possible. We will focus on the latest advances incorporating evidence-based data. Participants will review a unique sequential treatment planning approach which can result in successful outcomes.

Emphasis will be given to the use of 3D treatment planning as it relates to the diagnostic workup and the use of computer guided surgery. Multiple provisional options and/or interim Hawley prosthesis appliances will be reviewed to attain ideal esthetic results. Long term follow-up will be shown as it relates to these approaches.

  • Determine when to use immediate vs. delayed placement of implants
  • Understand the principles of CT guided treatment planning
