Complete Facial Aesthetic Course is organized by Empire Medical Training (EMT), Inc and will be held on Jul 12, 2019 at Detroit Marriott at the Renaissance Center, Detroit, Michigan, United States of America. Overview: Facial Aesthetic Training program is a great workshop for physicians, nurses, aestheticians, and other health care professionals interested in having a complete array of facial treatment options for their patients. There are many highly effective, yet simple procedures that, though often overlooked in facial aesthetic in place of the exciting Botox and Filler procedures, can afford you a more complete facial treatment option for your patients. What good is performing a Botox procedure on patients if the surface of their skin is riddled with hyper pigmentation, acne scars, poor texture, tone, and color? Our course is very complete and detailed, with written protocols for every step in each procedure and includes the opportunity to perform these hands-on procedures. Although not required, most attendees request a procedure for themselves or a spouse before adjourning the course. The Comprehensive Botox Workshop, Dermal Filler Workshop and Facial Aesthetic Training programs are scheduled on consecutive days for your convenience and to maximize your education in relation to aesthetics.

A Hands-On Approach to Sinus Lift Augmentation: Anatomy Treatment and New Innovations is organized by University of Detroit Mercy School of Dentistry and will be held from Sep 13 - 14, 2019 at University of Detroit Mercy School of Dentistry, University of Detroit Mercy Corktown Campus School of Dentistry, Detroit, Michigan, United States of America. Credits: 14 CEU's 10 CEU's - Lecture 4 CEU's - Hands-on Course Overview: This two-day course includes lectures, live-surgery recorded surgical videos and hands-on program specifically designed to discuss and apply sinus lift grafting principles and techniques to establish a healthy foundation for proper dental implant placement. The course will give clinicians a perspective of how to evaluate the patients medically and dentally to determine if a sinus lift is suitable for them. Medically, we will discuss how to avoid factors that may lead to complications and when ENT assessment is required. Dentally, we will assess anatomical consideration to determine which technique is most suitable for sinus lift. Further, it will also discuss rational and application for internal versus external sinus lifts. Multiple different techniques will be demonstrated through clinical cases and surgical videos including conventional sinus lift and new methodology using CSA and SLA techniques. A practical approach to review the surgical procedures that can aid the clinicians in day-to-day practice will be used. Finally, a hands-on program will be implemented using specially designed study models to perform internal and external sinus lift procedures. Participants will perform sinus lifts using new SCA and SLA techniques as well as conventional techniques. This will include the implementation of bone-grafting and membrane usage with simultaneous implant placement. Combination of lectures, surgical videos, and hands-on experience will benefit the participants in evidence-based decision making for successful treatments. The clinical cases will be presented to recapitulate and discuss rationale, indications, techniques used as well as the sequential treatment plan for predictable and successful outcomes. Education Objectives: • Understand maxillary sinus anatomy and pathology • Be able to evaluate patients medically before sinus lift and recognize when to refer to ENT to reduce complications • Learn sinus anatomy and how to maneuver around it to increase success • Be able to determine when internal versus external sinus lift is required • Learn the steps involved in sinus lift techniques (Conventional, New SCA/ SLA) • Understand principles and indications for performing sinus lift alone or with simultaneous implant placement • Understand pharmacology for proper sinus lift management The Hands-on Surgical Workshop Learning Objectives: • Perform internal sinus lift with simultaneous implant placement using SCA techniques • Perform external sinus lift using SLA technique Additional details will be posted as soon as they are available.

A Multidisciplinary Approach to Head and Neck Cancers is organized by University of Detroit Mercy School of Dentistry and will be held on Sep 20, 2019 at University of Detroit Mercy, Detroit, Michigan, United States of America. This Course has been approved for a maximum of 6.5 CEUs. Course Overview: Although cancers of the head and neck region only account for five percent of all cancers reported yearly in the human body, 30 percent of these cancers occur in the oral cavity. That is roughly 22,000 new cases per year if cancers of the lip are not included. Between 6000 and 7000 deaths per year occur becauseof oral cavity cancer. Cancers of the oral cavity left untreated can have devastating effects on critical life functions for people who have this disease. The oral cavity cancer diagnosis, treatment and rehabilitation is challenging because there are many different types of tissue located in this relatively small area and this area has numerous functions (speech, mastication, swallow, cosmesis). The choice of treatment and rehabilitation must take into account the potential loss of function in this area. A well-coordinated multidisciplinary team is required to provide optimal cancer treatment outcomes and survivorship. The objective of this symposium will be to review all aspects of oral cavity cancer diagnosis, treatments and rehabilitation with presentations from all disciplines involved. Specific attention will be paid to the diagnostic difficulties of oral cavity lesions, cutting edge treatments of challenging cases and how to optimize the rehabilitation of these patients. Objectives: • Review basics of head and neck cancer risk, diagnosis and treatment • Review multidisciplinary approach to head and neck cancer care • Specific attention will be given to oral cancers including oral cavity and oropharynx cancers • Review of the HPV cancer related epidemic • Define cancer survivorship for head and neck cancer patients and the importance of oral health • Review how head and neck cancer treatment can affect oral health Additional details will be posted as soon as they are available.
