Summer MasterTrack
“Complete Dentures in Clinical Practice,
What Works and Why”

12 Participation CE Credits, Code 670
8:30 AM – 5:00 PM
Day 1: Mid-Atlantic Center for Advanced Dental Study
1207 Volvo Parkway
Chesapeake, VA
Day 2: Mid-Atlantic Center for Advanced Dental Study
1207 Volvo Parkway
Chesapeake, VA

*Room block reserved at the VA Beach Westin, located 20 minutes from the VA Beachfront and 20 minutes from the course venue.*

Statistics on caries and periodontal disease continue to demonstrate that a significant portion of the population is at high risk for tooth loss. Combined with disease clustering, an aging population, and the ‘more teeth more disease theory,’ we find the need for complete removable prosthodontics remains high in many segments of the population. Despite this, intensive training and discussion of complete dentures has all but disappeared from dental education. The result appears to be significant unmet need. While dentists in upper-class urban areas compete over a limited number of involved restorative cases, those in rural and lower-income areas typically see steady demand for very rewarding and straight-forward removable prosthodontics.

This two-day hands-on course will focus on efficient, reliable, and effective complete denture techniques. The information will be delivered using three phases of the complete denture training program created by Dr. Waliszewski. First, key treatment planning and patient management decisions that facilitate positive end-results will be highlighted. Second, specific attention will be given to final impression making, maxillo-mandibular relationship records, tooth arrangement, and placement procedures. Third, during the second day of the course, it will be seen why the previous days lessons remain integral for success of implant-retained tissue-supported overdentures.

This course is meant for those who are seeking to improve their clinical outcomes with this large segment of the ‘dental needs’ population. The information will be presented using a small group interactive lecture format with specific time set aside for hands-on skills training. The clinical-image focused lecturing and step-specific hands-on projects are expected to directly relate to Monday morning chair-side dentistry in your office.

Objectives:

At the conclusion of this course the participant should be able to:

Clearly and efficiently explain the pros and cons of conventional complete dentures to a patient in-whom this treatment is indicated

Clearly and efficiently explain the pros and cons of implant-retained tissue-supported overdentures to a patient in-whom this treatment is indicated

Understand the time saving value of creating realistic expectations prior to treatment with removable prosthetics

Quickly create time-saving custom trays for edentulous patients

Understand the value in accurate and specific maxillo-mandibular relationship records

Review and practice basic prosthetic tooth arrangement principles

Review and practice basic overdenture attachment management

Understand the value of a clinical remount procedure

Review basic clinical equipment needs for treating edentulous patients

Demonstrate how these concepts translate to other prosthetic treatments

 

Michael P. Waliszewski  DDS, MsD 

After graduating Marquette University School of Dentistry with his DDS in 2002, Dr. Michael Waliszewski was selected as the first recipient of the David H. Wands fellowship in prosthodontics at the University of Washington.  While in Seattle, Michael was mentored in removable prosthetics by Dr. James Brudvik, one of the last remaining removable partial denture guru’s. He received his certificate and MsD from the UW Graduate Prosthodontic program in 2005. Michael then joined the full-time prosthodontic faculty back home in Milwaukee at Marquette. His signature accomplishment during that time was conceptualizing, creating, implementing, and running the live-patient complete denture training program that he ran for 7 years. Since 2012, Michael has continued to teach part-time at Marquette while working in a private practice limited to prosthodontics in Brookfield, WI. In 2015 he built and opened Prosthodontic Solutions, his own independent practice designed specifically for and limited to prosthodontics.  He remains a full-time clinician who deals with the ‘real-world’ everyday issues of prosthodontics.

 

Michael has published research, technique, and historical review articles in the JPD, J Pros, PPAD, and JERD.  He is active in the ACP, OKU, UW Grad Pros Alumni association, and the Dental forum of Milwaukee.  An adjunct faculty member at Marquette, he directs the weekly restorative treatment planning seminar for the graduate prosthodontic and graduate periodontic programs.  While he enjoys lecturing on occasion, he typically does so locally or as an unofficial adjunct faculty at the University of Washington graduate prosthodontic program.  With two grade-school aged children, he generally prefers to spend his spare-time with family.  When he does venture out-of-state for lecturing it tends to be for his extensive and clinically based removable prosthodontic material.

Who Needs a Sedation Update?

The Dental Sedation Update Program is designed for individuals that are currently certified and practicing dental sedation and require the update every 2 years. Dental Assistants are invited to attend the program so that they are aware of the sedation process and how to assist the dentist with the management of the patient. Dental Assistants may register for $99 to attend with a doctor.

The program content will cover, but not limited to; Virginia guidelines addressing dental sedation, indication for the use of sedation medication, side effects, reversal agents, etc., Pt and A/W assessment, and several scenarios concerning the complicated case and potential challenges associated with  the practice of sedation.

 

ACLS ONLY: What You Will Need to Purchase Before the Course

Please plan to arrive on time because it will be difficult for late students to catch up once we start. Students are expected to attend and participate in the entire course.

What You Will Need to Purchase Before the Course

You will need to purchase an ACLS Provider Manual (Order Number 15-1005) from one of the following vendors.

 

How to Get Ready

The ACLS Provider Course is designed to teach you the lifesaving skills required to be both a team member and a team leader in either an in-hospital or an out-of-hospital setting. Because the ACLS Provider Course covers extensive material in a short time, you will need to prepare for the course beforehand.

 

Precourse Requirements

You should prepare for the course by doing the following:

  1. Complete the precourse preparation checklist that comes with your ACLS Provider Manual. Bring the checklist with you to the course.
  2. Review the course agenda.
  3. Review and understand the information in your ACLS Provider Manual. Pay particular attention to the 10 cases in Part 5.
  4. The resuscitation scenarios require that your BLS skills and knowledge are current. You will be tested on 1-rescuer adult CPR and AED skills at the beginning of the ACLS Provider Course. You must know this in advance, since you will not be taught how to do CPR or how to use an AED.
  5. ****Review, understand, and complete the ECG and Pharmacology Pre-course Self-Assessment on the Student Website (www.heart.org/eccstudent) the password is “ACLS15”.  You will not be taught how to read or interpret ECGs in the course, nor will you be taught details about ACLS pharmacology.
  6. Print your scores for the Precourse Self-Assessment and bring them with you to class.

 

What This Course Does Not Cover

The ACLS Provider Course does not teach algorithms, ECG rhythm recognition, or pharmacology. If you do not learn and understand the ECG and pharmacology information in the Precourse Self-Assessment, it is unlikely that you can successfully complete the ACLS Provider Course.

 

What to Bring and What to Wear

Bring your ACLS Provider Manual to each class. You will need it during each lesson in the course. You may wish to purchase the AHA’s 2010 Handbook of Emergency Cardiovascular Care for Healthcare Providers (optional), which you may bring to the course to use as a reference guide during some of the stations in the course.

Please wear loose, comfortable clothing to class. You will be practicing skills that require you to work on your hands and knees, and the course requires bending, standing, and lifting. If you have any physical condition that might prevent you from engaging in these activities, please tell an instructor. The instructor may be able to adjust the equipment if you have back, knee, or hip problems.

We look forward to welcoming you on the date of class.  If you have any questions about the course, please call Weet Baldwin at (804) 569-7007.

Clear, concise and systemized techniques will be presented to treat every aspect from simple to complex cases involving veneers, crowns and implant restorations. These protocols will increase profitability by preventing failures that occur day-to-day in your office.

Cutting edge preparation techniques that will simplify difficult space management cases will be presented, along with how to handle shade challenges and when preparation modifications may be necessary. You will understand how to integrate flowable composite on the provisional and communicate the final patient approved shapes. State of the art digital smile design linking 3D prosthetic planning with fundamental principles and real-time communication that decreases dentist chair time and ceramist re-work.

Learn to turn a complicated camera into a point and shoot device and master digital photography. A clinical update on adhesive technology and ceramics will be presented so the team knows what systems to use and their limitations along with specific verbiage to control patient expectations. Dr. Bassett will clear the confusion of products and techniques ranging from incremental layering to bulk fill technology in the posterior. Dimensions of color and anatomic stratification of anterior composite to attain a polychromatic imperceptible result will be shown.

The relationship of form and function precludes treating anterior teeth as cosmetic challenges alone. Aesthetic and functional parameters of incisor position and morphology, dental facial treatment planning, determination of vertical dimension, and bite force management will be presented as components that allow comprehensive restorative treatment. Occlusal guidance must be understood so the final designs of the restoration can accommodate the intra-oral forces assuring longevity and predictability of the prosthesis.

The cases presented have been published in national peer reviewed journals. There is something for everyone to learn! You will leave the course with the proven step-by-step approach from simple to difficult clinical situations.

COMPOSITE ARTISTRY. Mastering Posterior and Anterior Techniques for Direct Composite and Creating Undetectable Restorations 

Direct aesthetic restorations are the most requested performed procedures in any dental practice today. New advancements in resin and photo-polymerization technology allows us to simplify these procedures without compromising quality. A clinical update on adhesive technology will be presented. She will clear the confusion of bonding agents and techniques ranging from incremental layering to bulk fill technology in the posterior.

 

Techniques to create morphologically precise direct anterior and posterior composite restorations will be discussed and demonstrated. This course will train your eyes to see the different dimensions of color when evaluating an anterior tooth. You will develop artistic capabilities by training your eyes to see the different dimensions of color when evaluating an anterior tooth. You will then learn which opacities and thickness to use in each area to be reconstructed and make a fracture line disappear.

Subsequently, your eye will see the reflective surfaces and facial anatomy and learn step by step finishing and polishing technique to mimic the contralateral tooth and create a morphologically precise undetectable restoration. Learn when and how to use pink composite to mimic gingiva.

 

Objectives:

  • Train your eyes to see color, line angles, reflective surface, shape, and form in the adjacent tooth that is being replicated
  • Learn how to achieve a predictable composite restoration following the stratification of opacities and achieve undetectable restorations
  • Learn how to layer the different opacities of composite, opaquing, tinting, finishing and surface texture to create natural light reflection and make a fracture line disappear
  • Review current composite materials, bonding systems, c factors, and techniques necessary to achieve predictable outcomes, while minimizing post operatory sensitivity
  • Master the techniques of posterior composite placement with bulk fill technology and matricing techniques
