A Simple Two-Step Treatment of Severe Periodontitis, and More! is organized by Herman Ostrow School of Dentistry of University of Southern California (USC) and will be held on Aug 24, 2019 at Herman Ostrow School of Dentistry of USC, Los Angeles, California, United States of America. This CME Conference has been approved for a maximum of 7 Continuing Education Credits. SYNOPSIS: The recognition over the past three decades of microbial specificity in periodontitis has afforded dental practitioners the ability to prevent and treat the disease with a variety of antimicrobial drugs. These include systemic antibiotics, topical antibiotics and topical antiseptics. Systemic antibiotic therapy can be essential in eliminating pathogenic bacteria that invade gingival tissue and in helping control periodontal pathogens residing in various domains of the mouth from where they may translocate to periodontal sites. Frequently used periodontal combination antibiotic therapies are metronidazole-amoxicillin (250-375 mg of each/three times daily/8 days) and metronidazoleciprofloxacin (500 mg of each/twice daily/8days). Microbiological analysis helps determine the optimal antibiotic therapy and the effectiveness of treatment. Topical antibiotics that are commercially available as controlled release devices suffer from several potential problems, including insufficient spectrum of antimicrobial activity in some periodontal polymicrobial infections, risks of producing an antibiotic resistant microbiota, and high acquisition costs. In this course, Dr. Slots presents a periodontal treatment protocol that includes a battery of professionally and patient administered antimicrobial agents. These chemotherapeutics can provide effective, safe, practical and affordable means of controlling subgingival colonization of periodontal pathogens and various types of periodontal disease. Treatment protocols and cases will be presented. TOPICS TO BE COVERED: • The type of periodontal patients who should be treated with adjunctive antimicrobial therapy. • Safe and effective antimicrobial therapies and how to select the most optimal antibiotic and antiseptic therapy for individual patients. • Effective and rational recall programs for periodontitis patients. • Highly effective, long-lasting and inexpensive means of combating bad breath and some types of tooth sensitivity. Additional details will be posted as soon as they are available.

24th Annual Pediatric Board Review / Board Prep Course is organized by UCLA Mattel Children's Hospital and will be held from Sep 03 - 08, 2019 at UCLA Meyer and Renee Luskin Conference Center, Los Angeles, California, United States of America. Description: The goal of this course is to provide a broad, but in-depth review of pediatrics for those preparing for the American Board of Pediatrics (ABP) certification examination, those undergoing ABP re-certification, and pediatricians and family practitioners seeking an intensive refresher course in pediatrics. The program is designed to maximize performance on the American Board of Pediatrics examination. The focus of the Board examination, historically, has been on diagnosis. Two key elements to making a successful diagnosis are pattern recognition and knowledge of links and associations. An appreciation of these elements is essential for maximal performance on the Board examination, and they are emphasized in this program. Pattern recognition involves fitting a set of symptoms, physical signs, and/or laboratory values to the pattern of a particular disease. For example, cough of ten days' duration, of increasing intensity and occurring in paroxysms, accompanied by coryza, with little or no fever, in a 7-week-old, fits the pattern of pertussis. Links and associations represent key features of diseases that are necessary to suspect or make the diagnosis. In the example above, one might recognize the diagnosis, yet success in answering the question could depend on recall of the link that, with pertussis, the white blood count is typically elevated, with a predominance of lymphocytes. Other links include: • links of physical findings and diseases (e.g., aniridia/Wilms) • links of geography and disease (e.g., Midwest and histoplasmosis) • links of diseases and treatments (e.g., legionella and macrolide therapy) Each lecture in the course includes descriptions of the patterns of illness for the most important and the most common pediatric problems, and key links and associations are highlighted. A daily photo quiz will permit attendees to test their diagnostic skills with X-rays, EKGs, dermatologic conditions, and genetic syndromes, among others. Objectives: At the conclusion of this course, participants should be able to: • Use pattern recognition to diagnose both common and unusual diseases in children • Describe diagnostic strategies for common and unusual problems in children • Describe therapeutic approaches after the diagnosis is established • Recognize important links and associations that may be tested on the Pediatric Board Exam Topics Covered: • Adolescent Medicine • Allergy/Immunology • Cardiology • Critical Care and Emergency Medicine • Dermatology • Developmental and Behavioral Pediatrics • Endocrinology • Ethics • • Gastroenterology and Nutrition • General Pediatrics • Genetics • Hematology/Oncology • Infectious Diseases • Neonatology • Nephrology • Neurology • Orthopedics and Sports Medicine • Pulmonology • Radiology • Patient Safety and Quality Improvement • Test Taking

Connective Tissue Graft Stabilization by Subperiosteal Sling Suture is organized by UCLA School of Dentistry and will be held on Sep 07, 2019 at UCLA School of Dentistry, Los Angeles, California, United States of America. This Conference has been approved for a maximum of 7 CDE Credits. Although coronally advanced flap (CAF) combined with connective tissue graft (CTG) is well-documented to be the gold standard for root coverage of localized Miller Class I and Miller Class II recession defects, it is susceptible to flap retraction, which can result in incomplete root coverage. The use of CTG with envelopes and tunnels maintain intact marginal and papillary tissue, which reduces the risk of tissue retraction during healing. However, with these techniques, the precise and controlled placement, and stabilization of the graft over the denuded root surface can be very challenging. This course teaches a minimally invasive surgical approach utilizing the vestibular incision subperiosteal tunnel access (VISTA), and a novel suturing technique called the subperiosteal sling (SPS) suture to stabilize the connective tissue graft for periodontal plastic and implant surgeries. Graft stabilization by the SPS suture minimizes the risk of graft mobility caused by muscle movement and allows for the controlled placement and stabilization of the graft in the coronal most position over the grafted site. Learning Objectives: • Etiologies and risk factors of gingival recession • Non-surgical and surgical periodontal management of gingival recession • Factors affecting root coverage outcome • Rationale for subperiosteal tunnel access • Connective tissue graft stabilization by subperiosteal sling suture for soft tissue augmentation of teeth and dental implants Hands-on Pig Jaw Root Coverage Workshop • Full thickness tunnel preparation • Connective tissue graft procurement • Connective tissue graft stabilization by subperiosteal sling suture Additional details will be posted as soon as they are available.
