The Dawson Academy Full Arch Dentistry Course is organized by The Dawson Academy and would be held during Sep 28 - 29, 2018 at Mid-Atlantic Center for Advanced Dental Study, Chesapeake, Virginia, United States of America. The target audience for this medical event for General Dentists, Specialists, Lab Technicians. This CME Conference has been approved with a maximum of 14 CE Credits. Course Description : This two day, hands-on on class will take each participant through a step-by-step protocol that will go from preparations to delivery. Special emphasis will be placed on fabricating exquisite provisional prototypes and how they are utilized to communicate precise esthetic and occlusal goals to the dental lab. Bite registrations techniques will be understood, so that the lab will be able to cross mount the die model with the provisional model. Additionally, techniques to provisionally alter the vertical using composite resin and other modalities will be understood so that patients with financial obstacles can be treated appropriately with properly segmented treatment plans. Every participant is invited to bring a complex case to treatment plan, and phase. Conference Objectives are : • Why occlusal wear and erosion need to be addressed, and why the progression of tooth structure loss leads to more complex problems. • To learn when it is appropriate to open the vertical dimension of occlusion, and when it should be approached with great caution. • How to utilize the Dawson Diagnostic Wizard to communicate precise esthetic and functional tooth contours to the dental laboratory, for the fabrication of an optimal diagnostic wax up. • How to transfer the diagnostic wax up into the mouth while creating provisional restorations, and how to efficiently dial these restorations in for optimum esthetics phonetics and function. • How to take “verticentric” bite registrations to precisely cross mount the die model with the temp models. • Digital technologies that that the lab can utilize to duplicate the doctor and patient approved provisional contours-the key to predictable results. • How to open the vertical dimension with multiple “long term provisional” techniques so that complex treatment plans can be phased. • To recognize when changing the tooth position with Invisalign or traditional orthodontic treatment, prior to the restorative phase, will improve the predictability of the end result. • Why many worn dentition cases will require esthetic crown lengthening, and how to know if gingivectomy or boney recontouring will be the appropriate modality. Special emphasis will be placed on treatment planning the precise position of the gingival contours as well the utilization of laser technology when performing these procedures.

Temporomandibular Disorders (TMD) Patients : Diagnosis & Treatment Dental Course is organized by The Dawson Academy and would be held during Nov 01 - 03, 2018 at Mid-Atlantic Center for Advanced Dental Study, Chesapeake, Virginia, United States of America. The target audience for this medical event for General Dentists, Specialists. This CME Conference has been approved with a maximum of 20 CE Credits. Course Description : This dental course will teach a systematic process for advanced records when TMD pathology is suspected. A systematic process for the evaluation, differential diagnosis, treatment and management of patients exhibiting signs and symptoms of TMD will be developed. Phase one treatment will focus on occlusal splint therapy. Splint designs will be selected based on the suspected joint diagnosis. Phase two will focus on the definitive treatment steps required to establish a lasting and comfortable occlusion. Conference Objectives are : • Understand when TM joint imaging is indicated and how to order it. • Differentiate between different imaging options, understand what the MRI and CT-Scans are showing and how this information relates to the signs and symptoms of TMD. • Understand what insurance codes, including medical, to use when treating TMD problems. • Recognize when to use occlusal splint therapy. • Differentiate between different types of splints and when to use which type. • How to fabricate and refine an occlusal splint. • Understand the basic concepts of anatomy, physiology, and neuromuscular relationships that must be considered in the development of an individualized management plan. • How to efficiently and profitably schedule splint therapy. • How to create an appropriate fee structure for service. • How to help patients understand the diagnosis and treatment needed so they will accept your recommendations. • How to create a treatment plan for definitive long term care.

The target audience for this medical event for General Dentists, Lab Technicians. This CME Conference has been approved with a maximum of 20 CE Credits. Course Description : This dental ce course provides a programmed approach to predictably diagnose and treatment plan both simple to extremely difficult cases. Utilizing the standardized records discussed in our dental courses Functional Occlusion- from TMJ to Smile Design and Achieving Predictable Esthetic Results each dentist will discover how to visualize optimum dentistry from an esthetic, functional, biological and structural perspective. You will learn to apply the four treatment options: reshaping, repositioning, restoring and surgical correction, which are a critical component of step-by-step dental treatment planning checklists. The focus of this continuing dental education program is to integrate a comprehensive dental treatment planning process into your practice.
