This course is critical for today’s interdisciplinary airway focused dentist. This course will especially be beneficial to practicing orthodontists that are utilizing maxillary skeletal expansion to begin their cases and help with ideal pediatric and adult dental alveolar therapy to assist patients with outstanding function and airway health. By early implementation of maxillary expansion, we can dramatically change the growth and development of our pediatric patients. The first day will have a focus on maxillary skeletal expansion, diagnosis, treatment planning and execution. Led by Dr. Marianna Evans, Periodontist and Orthodontist. On day 2 Dr. Scheyer will lead a discussion on the historical and current concepts of Surgically Facilitated Orthodontic Therapy (SFOT). This treatment modality also has a powerful impact on treating adolescent and adult patients. Not only allowing for more efficient tooth movement but most importantly constructing an alveolar base for teeth being surrounded by adequate hard and soft tissues for a lifetime of function and esthetics. The interdisciplinary approach utilizing both maxillary expansion and surgically facilitated orthodontic therapy has provided powerful tools for the practitioner to use to optimize airway focused interdisciplinary care in children and adults. Please join us for this two day course that will have a strong influence on your practice and treatment philosophy. You will be instructed by two of the most experienced clinicians utilizing maxillary skeletal expansion and surgically facilitated orthodontic therapy. This course will not only have extensive didactic information but will have hands on for both palatal expansion and SFOT.

2023 Live Upcoming Courses
Drs. Ramos, Scheyer, Evans, and Alfi will discuss their experiences with digital interdisciplinary workflows utilizing Digital Smile Design (DSD) to guide the practitioners during a collaborative treatment planning process between all of the disciplines in dentistry.
This interactive seminar will cover all aspects of an immediate implant placement and immediate loading protocol on a full arch restoration. It will have a live procedure performed by the speakers and hands on exercise on models. This seminar is focus on describing surgical and prosthetic factors involve on the treatment planning and execution of complex implant rehabilitation cases (FP1, FP2 and FP3). It will describe surgical landmarks in the maxilla and techniques for the placement of 4-6 dental implants. It will follow with a live case where 6 implants will be placed and immediately restored for a complete explanation of the surgical and prosthetic techniques. A digital workflow will be utilized from planning, surgical execution and prosthetic fabrication. The latest technologies as Photogrammetry, 3D printing and IOS will be demonstrated.
A requirement for maintaining a level 1 or level 2 anesthesia permit is to remain current in the controlling statutory anesthesia rule and requirements. Additionally, permit holders must periodically refresh and update their anesthesia and emergency preparedness knowledge for safe office anesthesia practice.
