Case presentations will support the surgical management and restorative concepts to enhance long-term success.
Attendees: General Dentist, Specialists, and Assistants (3 hrs.)
Marketing and Long-Term Treatment Planning for the Implant Practice
This program is designed to elevate the practices’ awareness of implant dentistry and how to implement it into everyday practice. The program outlines the keys for a successful implant practice including building an implant team, site preservation principles, recognizing the potential implant patient and developing an organized evaluation and consultation protocol. This program is essential for practitioner that the wants to treatment plan more implant cases on a consistent basis. This program was presented at the 61st Annual Meeting – AAID: Washington D.C. 2012.
Attendees: General Dentists, Specialists, and the entire dental team (1 ½ hrs.)
Orthodontic Considerations and Implant Dentistry
“The Congenital Missing Tooth”
This program will discuss the common clinical occurrence of the congenitally missing lateral incisor and mandibular first premolar. Surgical and prosthetic treatment times, coordination with the orthodontist to minimize transitional periods, ideal spacing and way to create space and abutment options will be addressed thru extensive case presentation. This presentation is ideal for the restorative dentist since all other options are considered compromises. Jackson BJ, Slavin MR.

Socket Grafting: A Predictable Technique for Site Preservation
This program discusses the concept of site preservation and how it enhances implant placement, long-term success and esthetic outcomes. Topics addressed are research-based decision making, bone development processes and types of bone grafting materials. The presentation illustrates the step by step methodology in successful socket grafting. This presentation was derived from the article that Dr. Jackson co-authored in the Journal of Oral Implantology, Vol. 33, No. 6, 2007; Socket Grafting: A Predictable Technique for Site Preservation.
Attendees: General dentists, Specialists and Staff (2 hrs.)
The 1-Piece Small Diameter Implant
The 1-piece 3.0 small diameter implant (Zimmer) had become a useful implant alternative for minimal bony dimensions. This presentation focuses on the incorporation of the 3.0 1-piece implant into your practice with emphasis on the maxillary lateral incisor and mandibular incisor area. Also, a posterior indication is presented for utilization of this 1-piece implant. The surgical and prosthetic protocols are discussed via multiple case presentations. The program is designed for surgeons and restorative dentists. Journal of Oral Implantology, 2011, XXXVII (special issue); 156-164.

Mini Dental Implants: Treatments Planning and Proven
Protocols for Long Term Success
Minimally invasive procedures in the field of healthcare including dentistry continue to evolve. Mini-dental implants parallel this trend with regards to surgical protocols and loading considerations. The success of mini implants relies on the understanding of current research, surgical and prosthetic protocols and biomechanical loading principles.

Immediate Implant Placement: Indications, Protocols, Risks and Limitations
Immediate Implant placement have demonstrated similar survival rates when compared to other approaches. Moreover, immediate placement has exhibited less facial bone loss and gingival recession. Most important to the patient is the elimination of a removable prosthesis during the integrative period. This presentation is designed to discuss the indications as well as the surgical and prosthetic protocols for immediate implant placement. Risks, limitations and potential complications will be illustrated in order for the clinician to develop a thought provoking treatment plan.
