The comprehensive examination will be carefully examined to help you understand it’s most diagnostically useful elements, including an insightful look at the medical and dental history, how to better account for patient’s agendas and expectations, intelligent use of radiographic and photographic documentation, and periodontal, biomechanical, functional and dentofacial presentations. These keys to decision-making are presenting in this Treatment Planning Course and set the stage for both the immediate issues and a more long-term focus on predictable treatment outcomes. Course Objectives : • Learn to comprehensively evaluate patients through simplified, systematic documentation. • Learn to evaluate by a risk assessment protocol, and triage the four major diagnostic parameters that effect and define success in treatment outcomes. • Learn to transfer treatment planning techniques to case presentation that leads to patient acceptance. • Learn how to incorporate a comprehensive examination and systematic treatment planning into your patient care. • Learn why Dr. Kois’ treatment planning system and simplified diagnostic opinion can build your knowledge base dramatically and increase confidence in your ability. • Learn how to recognize, assess and account for risk using a protocol that evaluates periodontal, biomechanical, functional and dentofacial issues. • Learn how to transfer the four diagnostic parameters into treatment plans and sequences that will minimize risk and maximize long-term success. • Learn how to engage the patient in understanding their condition so they may participate more fully in their own care.
