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.
Session I: The Cause of Airway-Related
Session II: The Assessment
Session III: The Treatment
Session IV: The Practice
Participants may join the course mid-cycle and finish in the next.
64 hours AGDPace (for all four sessions in total)
The relevance for the airway to all aspects of dentistry is becoming more apparent as we struggle with the compensations created by poor breathing and sleep. In this course, dentists will learn how to recognize Airway-Centered Diseases and about the various treatment approaches being used today. An arguement for Medically Indicated Orthodontic Care will be made.
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.
In this session, SLP's will learn how to keep babies and young children (birth to age 2-years) on track to prevent or reduce life-long feeding, speech, and mouth development problems. There are many children on our caseloads who were born with typically developing mouths but then something went wrong (particularly in the first year). These children develop low tongue resting positions, high narrow palates, small nasal airways, feeding and speech problems, etc. These difficulties could be avoided if parents and caregivers used appropriate feeding, speech, and mouth development techniques and activities beginning at birth. Prevention is the key, and my goal is to help you do that!
This short course will help the GP beef up the skills needed to enter the expanding pediatric market. Technique and behavioral management skills are taught by the former chairman of the Mt Sinai School of Medicne Pediatric Dentistry program.
IBCLCs! Join us for a 2-day intensive Master Class as we present, discuss and explore the various tricks, tools, resources, interventions and innovative techniques that we can utilize as IBCLCs in supporting the habilitation of the breastfeeding dyad in overcoming oral dysfunction.
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.
The course will incorporate laser physics and will detail the use of lasers in periodontology, implantology, fixed and removable prosthetics, pedodontics/orthodontics, oral surgery, and more. The course will include clinical videos and the in-depth discussion of settings and techniques for laser surgical procedures, such as periodontal pocket therapy, frenectomies, gingivectomies, crown lengthenings, biopsies, and others.
Each participant will get hands-on experience, performing surgical laser procedures on in-vitro models.
Traditional orthodontics is a mechanical affair. Quantum orthodontics works with the body to heal itself.
Dr. James will show you an approach to straightening teeth and improving overall health that is as revolutionary orthodontics as Einstein was to physics.
May the force be with you!
This course is a combination of lecture and hands-on opportunities. It highlights the team approach to ankyloglossia care. Lectures will feature the physics of laser usage, criteria for selecting an appropriate laser tool, and the indications for oral tie intervention. The speakers will address proper ankyloglossia assessment, pre-tie-release preparation, oral laser use—theory & practice—and active post-release care. Attendees will participate in a hands-on workshop on the removal of restrictive lingual and labial frenums through the use of soft-tissue lasers.
The 2-day course expands the scope of oral preventative healthcare where dental practitioners will learn to model chronic disease as a result of diet and nutritional lifesyle factors.
Understand functional oral disease intervention.
Feel confident in integrating dietary modification.
Alter the disease risks for your patients.
