Thursdays, September 17-October 15, 2015 6:00 pm – 9:00 pm Didactic Series (Part A) &
October 17-18, 2015, 8:00 am – 4:00 pm Clinical Portion (Part B)
Office trained dental assistants who wish to expose radiographs must have training in a radiography course approved by the North Carolina State Board of Dental Examiners. This course will include instruction in fundamentals of digital imaging and image acquisition using CCD/CMOS sensors and PSP receptors. Basic principles of panoramic radiography will be introduced during the course.
|October||10/2/2015 8:00 AM - 4:00 PM||UNC School of Dentistry||2015 THEA Symposium-'Saving Teeth for a Lifetime: New Technologies and Approaches to Dentin Conservation'|
THEA Members: No fee (Membership fees subsidize your registration)
Many traditional root canal instrumentation and access techniques are very invasive, and remove too much of the natural dentin. This weakens teeth, leaving them susceptible to subsequent fracture and failure. This course explores the implications of recent research into endodontic access and instrumentation. The attendee will learn how to shape and disinfect the canal while respecting the natural morphology. Preserving denting will preserve the strength of teeth, lowering risk of post-endodontic stress-related failures.
|10/9/2015 9:00 AM - 4:30 PM||The William and Ida Friday Center for Continuing Education||The Epidemiology of Infection Control in Dentistry: Principles and Particulars of Protection - SPICE|
SPICE is a required course. Annual OSHA updates do not fulfill this requirements of this law. However, this course will meet OSHA's annual training requirements (except for office specifics).
|10/23/2015 9:00 AM - 4:30 PM||The William and Ida Friday Center for Continuing Education||Changing the Paradigm for Preventing and Managing Dental Caries: Using Everything We Know|
This course will introduce the issues associated with management of dental caries including a review of current approaches to caries diagnosis and risk assessment.
|10/30/2015 9:00 AM - 4:30 PM||UNC School of Dentistry||3D Imaging: The Path to the Future of Dentistry|
3D imaging with cone beam computed tomography (CBCT) and other 3D modalities is the path to the future of dentistry for major improvements in radiographic diagnosis, treatment planning and digital dentistry. Ample research has shown that 2D imaging has reached the end of the road in terms of potential for improvements. CBCT technology has provided a low dose and relatively low cost means of providing 3D imaging of the maxillofacial region for dentistry and has the potential to become an essential component of a modern dental practice. This course is designed to familiarize each participant with the fundamentals of cone beam computed tomography technology and its many applications to dentistry.
