Multidisciplinary Grand Rounds Study Group Meeting
1.5 CPD Hours | Myths in Dentistry... In-person Event  Join Dr Chankhrit Sathorn and Andrew Thorpe as they demystify the 'Myths in Dentistry' in this hybrid Multidisciplinary Grand Rounds Study Group Meeting.   Registrations open at 6:00pm and presentations begin at 6:45pm. Canapés and refreshments are included in your fee.   Synopsis: Single vs Multi-visit RCT Controversy Presented by Dr Chankhrit Sathorn Single and multiple-visit root canal treatments are alternative forms of treatment. This controversy regarding which regimen is more suitable has existed for over a century.   This talk will address this controversy using evidence-based concepts, to provide a structure on which the clinically-relevant questions in this controversy can be dealt with systematically.   When clinicians are faced with choices of which treatment regimen should be offered to patients, the central issues that should be considered are effectiveness, complications, human factors, and cost.   Controversies for the Modern Dental Extraction Presented by Dr Andrew Thorpe Before dental implants, dental extractions were easier – no thoughts were needed to preserving the buccal plate, no grafting was usually needed, and the advent of antibiotics meant a near-end to worries about infections. The modern dental extraction seems to require extensive thought. What is the most appropriate pain relief in the world of opioid epidemics? Am I really a criminal for fracturing the buccal plate? In this seminar, Dr Andrew will take on some of the more controversial topics in the routine procedure of removing a tooth: -          Will fracturing the buccal plate mean that the patient can’t have a dental implant? -          Are opioids in or out this season? -          The “infected” tooth – should we delay the extraction if the patient isn’t going numb? Do you want to attend online? Limited spaces are available for the presentation at our St Leonards lecture theatre.

Western Division Meeting
6.5 CPD Hours | Anxiety Control in Dentistry... Psychosedation, Oral Sedation and Nitrous Oxide Many of our patients are quite anxious about seeking and receiving dental treatment. It may lead to some people avoiding dental care completely until excruciating pain gives them no choice. Dentists should be able to provide alternatives to control a patient’s anxiety and to assist them to receive treatment. This course will cover a spectrum of anxiety-relieving alternatives. It will give the caring dentist a selection of anxiolytic techniques that can be offered to their patients including psychosedation, oral sedation and nitrous oxide sedation. All participants will have the opportunity to administer and experience the full range of effects of relative analgesia using nitrous oxide-oxygen, and, after completing the course, will feel confident in setting up and administering this agent. Topics Include: The basics of fear and anxiety in the dental office The utilisation of psychosedation techniques Review of Basic Life Support The utilisation of oral sedation Relevant pharmacology, administration and monitoring Indications/contraindications Managing complications The utilisation of nitrous oxide sedation Relevant pharmacology, administration and monitoring Indications/contraindications Managing complications Learning Objectives: Gain an understanding of the key causes of fear and anxiety in our patients Understand basic psychosedation techniques and be able to apply them Revise Basic Life Support Understand pharmacodynamics and pharmacokinetics, advantages/disadvantages, indications/contra-indications of oral sedation and nitrous oxide sedation Gain confidence in utilising oral sedation and nitrous oxide sedation During the practical session, participants will work in groups and learn both slow and fast nitrous oxide-oxygen induction techniques.

Building a Practice - Negotiating a Lease
3.5 CPD Hours | Avoid 5 Haunting Lease Mistakes... Negotiating a lease is a skill. At its core, it involves identifying what kind of lease is compatible with the business goals of the practice owner and working backwards from that point.  ​ In a perfect world, negotiations are orderly and principled. In reality, dentists are forced to deal with high-pressure sales tactics and to make leasing decisions quickly sometimes without having the full picture. The big mistakes happen very early in the process. This course will equip you with what you need to know to have the key conversations and avoid the 5 big leasing mistakes that can cripple a new practice. This workshop equips dentists and practice owners with the know-how to negotiate and optimise their premises lease, and to avoid common traps when negotiating for new space for their practice. The focus is on finding the short-cuts, a rough and ready guide to better leasing outcomes. Participants will understand the relationship between the lease and practice value, and how certain clauses in a lease can be catastrophic to the future value and salability of a practice. No nonsense and straight to the point, this workshop is designed to de-mystify leases and give participants the ability to assess their current lease and improve the quality of their relationships with future landlords. The workshop drives home the importance of understanding leases from a deal-making perspective and gives participants the confidence to communicate effectively with landlords, leasing agents, and lawyers involved in the leasing process....

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 but should encompass the whole spectrum of dental care from damage and disease through treatment to review and monitoring. Clinical photography should provide consistent quality digital images of every part of the mouth and face, teeth and soft tissues ranging from the head to a tooth. With today’s digital technology every dentist can chronicle photographically what they see in the mouth, whether for records, communication, education – in fact whenever the clinical situation warrants photographic documentation. The closest thing to what we see through our loupes is a photograph and this can actually reflect the reality of the mouth at a particular point in time and at critical stages of planning and treatment. 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. As an element in best practice, it significantly enhances record-taking, validates clinical decisions and provide an impressive tool for patient education and practice marketing. People easily process and comprehend visual information and this course will show that instant quality images visible on a monitor can dramatically improve patient understanding and acceptance of treatment recommendations. Attendees will see reviews of all types of cameras and the armamentarium and accessories required to take extra and intra-oral pictures with recommendations and guides to purchase. This course will be an invaluable experience for general dentists and specialists and will be a useful guide to better general photography. ...

Update on Safer Prescribing in Dentistry
7.0 CPD Hours | Steps to prescribe with confidence!...Prescribing is a complex task requiring a wide range of skills, from information gathering and risk management, knowledge of pharmacology and therapeutics, clinical decision-making, to communication and cooperation with others in the team and understanding the commercial, regulatory and legal requirements.  Despite dentists being the second largest prescriber group in Australia, most dentists report having little or no formal education on how to prescribe. It tends to be a skill picked up ‘on the fly’ under the tutelage of senior staff in a workplace. This not a safe way to learn such an important and potentially dangerous skill, especially considering the high-risk medicines dentists can prescribe.  This one-day seminar will provide a structured overview of the foundation skills required to be a competent and safe prescriber in contemporary health care. Particular attention will be paid to the cognitive steps leading up to the act of prescribing including medication history-taking.   Topics focus on high-risk situations such as the very young, older people, pregnancy, and breastfeeding and ‘polypharmacy’. Complex medical patients with comorbidities such as cardiovascular and autoimmune disease, kidney and liver impairment will also be discussed. Case studies will address error-prone situations such as dose calculations, look-alike-sound-alike drugs, drug interactions, unsafe abbreviations, and prescribing under time constraints, focussing on prevention of prescribing errors and patient safety.

Update on Management of Dental Pain with Medicines
6.0 CPD Hours | Prescribe pain medications appropriately... Research has shown that since the Covid pandemic began in 2019, prescribing of opioid medications by dentists has massively increased.* Now more than ever, dentists are prescribing and administering medication for acute dental or orofacial pain, rather than performing dental interventions, which would normally be the treatment of choice.    This is concerning not only in terms of drug safety, but also because there have been dramatic changes to pain management guidelines in recent years about which many dentists have had little or no training. These changes include the move away from using codeine or indeed any opioid medication, to greater reliance on simple analgesics and combination products such as paracetamol and ibuprofen.  If an opioid is to be used, oxycodone is now the drug of choice, however it has a very different profile and prescribing regimen from codeine. Not to mention, new contraindications have been introduced for use of opioids in children and breastfeeding women, and the elderly.   Keep updated with the many recent changes to legislation of many drugs, real-time prescription monitoring, latest prescribing and electronic prescriptions rules. This course will provide an update on the all the above-mentioned issues, including choosing the most appropriate analgesic for different types of pain, how to ensure correct dosing, strategies to avoid drug interactions, and how to tailor the use of different pain medicines to different patient groups, such as the very young, the elderly, medically complex patients and those who are pregnant or breastfeeding.  After attending this course you will be a much more confident, competent and safe pain medicine prescriber.  Learn the safe steps for prescribing medications safely and register for an Update on Safer Prescribing in Dentistry on Thursday, 15 September 2022.

Advanced Orthodontics
13.0 CPD Hours | Orthodontic Biomechanics and Treatment Solutions... Advanced Orthodontic Biomechanics is an ongoing orthodontic lecture series primarily designed to answer specific orthodontic treatment questions. As has been the case for the past few years, the course contents for this orthodontic seminar are based on questions and topics submitted from the previous year’s participants.  The surveys from these groups result in numerous requests to answer specific questions regarding specific treatment problems and Eric has grouped these together in order of the most requested items.   Dr Lowenhaupt will be presenting more cases under the category of "Why did this not work?" as well as cases entitled "How could this be done better?" Some of the most popular/frequent subjects were; When to distalize and when to extract?? Treatment sequence for deep bite and open bite patients. 'Thin-slicing’ orthodontic treatment solutions for congenitally missing teeth.   Other questions related to changes in aligner treatment and technology, use of elastics during finishing and simple solutions for minimal relapse cases where things didn’t work out as planned. Additionally, there was the request to see more tips on practice management and inventory challenges for the non-specialist office. So, this lecture will seek to address these items (including answering many of the specific questions that were asked).   Multiple cases will be utilized to demonstrate various aspects of mechanics and treatment modalities with particular interest paid to the best available ‘evidenced-based information’. Additionally, multiple treatment ‘pearls’ will be shown to make your practice easier and more efficient. ...

Practical Radiography in Dental Practice
7.0 CPD Hours | Accurate radiographs are essential to make a correct diagnosis, deliver positive treatment outcomes, assess long-term results and provide medico-legal protection. This course will look at the opportunities and challenges of 2D and 3D imaging. Conventional 2D images remain the mainstay of dental treatment with film, digital sensors or phosphor plate options. Digital systems used correctly reduce radiation exposure and the need for manual processing of traditional film. This course will use two holders that operate across all 2D platforms and give you the results you need and want, including perhaps the most difficult requirement, taking an accurate and repeatable endodontic image with rubber dam in place. The objective of the 2D part of the course is to demonstrate simple clinical techniques to achieve this aim for all teeth and under all clinical situations. The 2D discussion will also include techniques and interpretation of OPG images.  3D or CBCT imaging is the most exciting development in dental radiology today. This part of the course will stress the advances in diagnosis and treatment planning that CBCT provides. Learn how to interpret CBCT images and use generic imaging software to its maximum advantage. Emphasis will be placed on recognising the difference between artifacts and pathological conditions and understanding the medical implications of 3D imaging. Testimonials from 2020 Attendees "Steve and Pete are very knowledgeable and make the topics very easy to understand. One of the best courses I have done with ADA NSW" “Well organised course, very easy to understand"   ...

52.0 CPD Hours | ADA NSW CPD and ITI Collaboration... This foundation-level program is intended for dental practitioners wishing to develop their theoretical knowledge and practical clinical experience in the treatment planning, surgical placement, restoration and maintenance of dental implants.  Knowledge is developed using distance learning modules and study days with hands-on components. This course is a clinical, multi-system, dental implant course that will enable the participants to make informed evidence-based decisions in their day to day dental implant practice and will train participants to understand the surgical and restore phases of dental implants therapy.  The modules consist of a blended online learning platform based on an internationally recognised curriculum, live lectures to consolidate the online materials and hands-on practical component. The importance of the restorative dentist and a restoratively driven treatment plan in dental implant therapy is emphasised.   The course is divided into three parts:  The didactic part will be conducted in the form of online learning modules and online lectures via ITI Online Academy; group discussion, review of literature, and case presentations.  Hands-on workshops will be conducted in the form of demonstrations and laboratory exercises and actual case discussions.  Surgical and prosthetic demonstrations                                                                                                  Module 1 Introduction and Implant Treatment Planning  Friday 24 – Saturday 25 February 2023 Each participant will become familiar with the biologic and biomechanical basis of osseointe-gration, highlighting the interface between the implant surface, bone and soft tissue. The course will discuss the efficacy of CBCT imaging for use in implant dentistry. CBCT applications for implant planning, site assessment and treatment planning will be discussed.    The focus will be on pre-treatment diagnosis and identification of factors relevant to the selection and planning of dental implant patients. Each participant will become familiar with criteria for patient selection and factors that contraindicate care. Specific attention will be given to the categorisation of patients according to the difficulty of treatment. The interrelationship between the members of the treatment team will be detailed and related to maximising clinical outcomes while maintaining practice efficiency.    Each participant will be introduced to the concept of digital implant planning, highlighting the difference between analog vs. digital surgical guide construction.    Objectives: • Review and become familiar with anatomy and biology as it relates to the placement and restoration of dental implants • Describe the interface between bone and currently used dental implants, with emphasis on the interaction between the surface morphology, implant component design and the bone response • Describe the biologic reactions of tissues (hard and soft) to surgery during treatment with dental implants with special consideration of healing factors capable of interfering with this process • Become familiar with the “team” concept of dental implant therapy, with particular reference to the comprehensive treatment planning of patients • Describe and recognise surgical and restorative indications and contra-indications to dental implant therapy as part of an integrated treatment planning process • Understand the treatment planning factors associated with dental implants. • Understanding the construction of radiographic and surgical guide                                                                                                   Module 2 Surgical Aspec of Implant Therapy  Friday 28 – Saturday 29 April 2023   The second module is intended to concentrate on a simplified technique for successful placement of dental implants. Surgical field preparation protocol (asepsis and sterility) will be discussed relevant to implant placement. Pharmacological requirements, instrumentation and surgical techniques will be emphasised for the placement and post-surgical maintenance of dental implants. This session will include an overview on surgical considerations for aesthetic implant restorations along with a live surgery to explore the flap design, soft and hard tissue managements, suturing techniques, control of bleeding and actual implant placement.  Potential surgical complications will be discussed along with mechanical and restorative potential complications. Preservation of soft tissue integrity and the blood supply will be discussed. This hands-on approach will advance the cases initiated in the treatment-planning module through implant placement in pig jaw surgery.    Objectives: • Observe a live surgical implant demonstration on a patient • Acquire information on site development surgery and prosthetics in the aesthetic zone • Be introduced to bone grafting manipulation techniques, maxillary sinus augmentation (sinus lift), block graft and guided bone regeneration as part of site preparation for implant placement • Detailed flap design and suturing techniques will be covered as directly related to dental implant treatment • Aesthetics and surgical considerations in the dental implant patient will be covered in detail as well as information on single implant restoration • Perform hands-on training practicing the flap design, osteotomy preparation to place an implant and suturing techniques on pig jaws                                                                                                   Module 3 Prosthodontic Aspects of Implant Dentistry  Friday 23 – Saturday 24 June 2023 The third module is intended to concentrate on restorative aspects of implant treatment.  Each participant will become familiar with the rationale of cement vs screw retained implant restorations.   The focus will be on various prosthetic components for implant restorative solution. e.g. impression and abutments needed to restore a single implant crown.   Each participant will become familiar with differences and similarities of components of different implant systems. Potential prosthetic pitfalls will be discussed. The hands-on describes a prosthodontically driven approach to planning, preparation and making an analog impression. A systematic workflow with logical steps is advocated to determine choice of implant, impression component and related impression technique. Each participant will be exposed to the potential of CAD CAM restorative solutions for their clinical practice.   Objectives: • Observe the prosthetic aspect of a live patient • Determine the method of retention of implant restorations and their rationale of use • Define analog (conventional) implant impressions • List the essential requirements of a conventional implant impression • Select conventional implant impression components and techniques • Compare and contrast the different systems, prosthetic components and their indications for each case                                                                                                   Module 4 Maintenance and Complications   Friday 25 – Saturday 26 August 2023 Maintenance of both implant prostheses and peri-implant tissue health are critical to the long-term survival, success, and benefit of implant therapy.

Practical Radiography in Dental Practice
7.0 CPD Hours | Accurate radiographs are essential to make a correct diagnosis, deliver positive treatment outcomes, assess long-term results and provide medico-legal protection. This course will look at the opportunities and challenges of 2D and 3D imaging. Conventional 2D images remain the mainstay of dental treatment with film, digital sensors or phosphor plate options. Digital systems used correctly reduce radiation exposure and the need for manual processing of traditional film. This course will use two holders that operate across all 2D platforms and give you the results you need and want, including perhaps the most difficult requirement, taking an accurate and repeatable endodontic image with rubber dam in place. The objective of the 2D part of the course is to demonstrate simple clinical techniques to achieve this aim for all teeth and under all clinical situations. The 2D discussion will also include techniques and interpretation of OPG images.  3D or CBCT imaging is the most exciting development in dental radiology today. This part of the course will stress the advances in diagnosis and treatment planning that CBCT provides. Learn how to interpret CBCT images and use generic imaging software to its maximum advantage. Emphasis will be placed on recognising the difference between artifacts and pathological conditions and understanding the medical implications of 3D imaging.

Basic Orthodontics for the Paediatric and General Dentist
13.0 CPD Hours | Paediatric and General Dental specialists are often curious if they would enjoy offering orthodontic treatment to selected patients in their practices. In today’s competitive practice environment, the practitioner is often overwhelmed by the types and number of different orthodontic courses available. To be effective in achieving ideal results for your patients the modern practitioner must be knowledgeable and experienced in all facets of dentistry.   In orthodontics, it is important to understand details of differential diagnosis, prognosis, treatment planning, treatment options, biomechanics and retention. Many orthodontic cases can be treated by a non-specialist and many should only be treated by the specialist. By functioning together with the specialist for the good of the patient we can look forward to achieving fine results for our patient’s families. In daily practice, paediatric and general dentists encounter patient conditions including anterior and posterior cross-bites, ectopic eruption, crowding, Class II & III malocclusions, missing teeth and aesthetic situations. This two-day Introductory Orthodontics Course is specifically designed for the paediatric and general dentist looking for a sophisticated, evidence-based yet clinical approach for orthodontic treatment. Emphasis will be placed on diagnosis, prognosis, treatment options, treatment mechanics, retention design, trouble-shooting and evaluation of chief complaints. This course is not designed to give the participant the ability to treat all cases but rather is tailored to giving the participant insight into the possibilities of incorporating orthodontic services into their practices and what that might entail. ...

Advanced Orthodontics
13.0 CPD Hours | Orthodontic Biomechanics and Treatment Solutions... Advanced Orthodontic Biomechanics is an ongoing orthodontic lecture series primarily designed to answer specific orthodontic treatment questions. As has been the case for the past few years, the course contents for this orthodontic seminar are based on questions and topics submitted from the previous year’s participants.  The surveys from these groups result in numerous requests to answer specific questions regarding specific treatment problems and Eric has grouped these together in order of the most requested items.   Dr Lowenhaupt will be presenting more cases under the category of "Why did this not work?" as well as cases entitled "How could this be done better?" Some of the most popular/frequent subjects were; When to distalize and when to extract?? Treatment sequence for deep bite and open bite patients. 'Thin-slicing’ orthodontic treatment solutions for congenitally missing teeth.   Other questions related to changes in aligner treatment and technology, use of elastics during finishing and simple solutions for minimal relapse cases where things didn’t work out as planned. Additionally, there was the request to see more tips on practice management and inventory challenges for the non-specialist office. So, this lecture will seek to address these items (including answering many of the specific questions that were asked).   Multiple cases will be utilized to demonstrate various aspects of mechanics and treatment modalities with particular interest paid to the best available ‘evidenced-based information’. Additionally, multiple treatment ‘pearls’ will be shown to make your practice easier and more efficient. ...
