As many as 5 percent of all babies born in the US have tongue-ties significant enough to cause breastfeeding difficulties. Untreated tongue-ties may cause malocclusion prognathism, mouth breathing and other issues later in life. The purpose of this course is to help clinicians better understand various aspects of pediatric laser surgery to treat tethered oral tissue (TOT) across all ages.
A good surgical laser for cutting soft tissue must be able to efficiently vaporize soft tissue, while at the same time efficiently coagulating surgical margins. Not all laser wavelengths are suitable to comply with both requirements. This course focuses on the practical aspects of soft tissue laser surgery, as well as on the fundamental processes involved in the laser-tissue interaction and helps attendees learn how deep the laser beam cuts and how deep the coagulation and hemostasis extend into the surgical margins. Our hands-on participation lab is designed to train attendees on what surgical lasers can do safely and efficiently.
Increasingly the public is demanding an alternative to symptom & disease management. The goal of this course is to give an approach to the patient's dental health that is grounded in global wellness. We will look beyond teeth, gums, muscles, and joints to overall patient well-being.

There has been a lot of discussion about Tethered Oral Tissues over the past decade. How do they limit function? How are they assessed? And, certainly, when and how are they revised?
ENT Soroush Zaghi has become a leading voice in this discussion. Come hear his answers and, hopefully, a live demonstration of his technique.

Dr. Barry Gillespie began to practice "whole body" dentistry decades ago, addressing the craniosacral fascial system in his overall treatment (see www.gillespieapproach.com). Recently, he has focused on working with infants. This course will include clinical demonstrations on children, infants, and participants.
While others are debating the relative value of "Early Treatment Orthodontics", we know that this approach has nothing to do with the teeth and everything to do with the growing face, the airway, and being able to get a good night's sleep.
Drs. Boyd, Evans and Raphael will describe the approaches they use in their respective practices to help young children grow to their utmost NATURAL potential.
Dr. Loghmanee will address the airway and sleep issues from a medical perspective that reinforces the need for early treatment.
