A Restorative Mini-Residency
13.0 CPD Hours | A Restorative Mini-Residency  Wednesday 6 October - Thursday 7 - VIRTUAL PRESENTER 9:00am - 4:30pm - 13.0 CPD Hours Dr Jason Smithson will join us via video link at the ADA NSW Centre for Professional Development for this virtual presentation from his dental studio in the United Kingdom. Although virtual, the sessions will be fully interactive. You’ll still have the opportunity to directly discuss the topic with Dr Smithson, watch demonstrations live, and receive immediate feedback on the hands-on simulation exercises you’ll carry out. What do we do when a direct restoration would seem wildly optimistic, yet a crown overly destructive?  ADA NSW Centre for Professional Development is proud to again offer this unique two-day course with Dr Jason Smithson, a leading light in the field of direct composite resin artistry and minimally invasive all-ceramic restorations, to Australian dentists in 2021!  This year's course will see Dr Smithson present virtually from the UK, providing all participants with his extensive wealth of knowledge and expertise via video link. In recent years it has become well accepted that direct composite resin restorations are predictable in small to medium-sized cavities; similarly, the durability of full-coverage crowns is well known. However, the grey area is when a cavity falls somewhere between the two: what do we do when a direct restoration would seem wildly optimistic, yet a crown overly destructive? These and many other similar questions go through the mind of the busy general practitioner many times every day. This comprehensive, evidence-based workshop offers clear, easily understandable protocols to simplify the decision-making process and compliments this with end-to-end workflows to rapidly restore posterior teeth with direct composite resin in more simple cavities and ceramic onlays for more broken-down teeth. Likewise, protocols for both direct resin and full coverage crowns are explored in the anterior dentition. This class is 75% Hands-On.   This is a unique CPD education experience with Dr Smithson presenting via video-link and is not to be missed! Register now as places are limited! ...

The Basics of Clinical Photography
6.5 CPD Hours | An introductory course for beginners... Clinical photography is not just about beautiful white teeth or cosmetic artistry. It is should encompass the whole spectrum of dental care from damage and disease through treatment to review and monitoring.   With today’s digital technology every dentist can chronicle photographically what they see in the mouth, whether for general records or whenever the situation warrants photographic documentation.   The closest thing to what we see through our loupes is a photograph and this can reflect the reality of the mouth. X-rays do not show failing restorations, crack lines and wear patterns; notes cannot always clearly indicate the sequence of events in a clinical session; study models poorly represent the restored nature of teeth and the health of soft tissues.   The routine use of digital clinical photography augments charting, notes and x-rays. It significantly enhances record-taking, validates clinical decisions and provides an impressive tool for patient education and practice marketing.   Attendees will see reviews of all types of cameras and the armamentarium and accessories required to take extra and intra-oral pictures. People easily comprehend visual data and this course will show instant quality images can dramatically improve patient understanding and acceptance of treatment recommendations.   Attendees will be able to use four different recommended camera systems during the practical sessions, as well as ensuring their cameras are fit for purpose.   This course will be an invaluable experience for general dentists and specialists and will be useful for general photography as well. ...

Conservative Management of the Worn Dentition - Including Injection Moulding Restorative Techniques
6.5 CPD Hours | What strategies are required as patients and their restored dentitions age? Restoration of an extensively worn or badly broken down dentition can be complex, costly and time-consuming to implement. Because of its complexity and cost, this treatment is often delayed until it becomes essential. Dentists (and patients!) want to stop the repeat restoration cycle and its ongoing costly restorative burden. So how do we treat the patient with a severely broken down dentition? Through lectures, clinical demonstrations and participation exercises, Professor Meyers will present four steps to restorative success: Clinical evaluation of patients Review of several patient cases  Risk assessment tools Impact of patient’s health and lifestyle  Correct treatment planning before restoration Oral environment How dry mouth and salivary acidity correlates with severe tooth wear and non-carious tooth surface loss Examination requirements, salivary analysis and remineralisation strategies Stabilisation of the oral environment and risk reduction before restoration New materials and techniques How to evaluate the range of materials and techniques available for cost-effective and conservative management and aesthetics Step by step procedures (using a range of materials) to allow participants to compare the various materials and techniques for direct and semi-direct restorations Practical experience Demonstration and participant simulation exercises covering techniques for the restoration of the worn dentition; including direct restorative techniques, laboratory procedures, direct, semi-direct and indirect adhesive technologies ...
