Form and Function: Comprehensive Care of the Facial and Dental Trauma Patient
Stanley Liu, MD, DDS; Gary K. Roberts, DDS


Traumatic facial injury is perhaps the best example of the need to restore both form and function for patients. Bite, breathing and beauty can all be severely deranged, and an ill-planned repair exacerbates the loss or limitation to function. Virtual surgical planning, 3D printing with additive manufacturing and various systems have made it possible for us to gain minimally invasive access today. Sound fundamental knowledge of the facial bone and muscles remains critical. To achieve goals that our patients deserve, it takes practitioners with a diverse spectrum of expertise working together for a well-coordinated recovery effort. Restoration of function from the reconstruction of form remains at the essence of facial and dental interventions.


You Will Learn:

  • To define types of facial and dental trauma and to understand the state-of-art methodology for their repair
  • How to plan for adjunctive procedures in the care of the complex facial and dental trauma patients
  • To integrate virtual surgical and occlusion planning for comprehensive total oral rehabilitation after maxillofacial trauma
  • To determine the specialists to refer to in the complete restoration of both form and function in facial and dental trauma patients

Navigating Narcotics
Andrew Young, DDS, MSD

Of all the tools dentists have for relieving pain, opioids are perhaps the most problematic. This lecture will help you navigate through various challenges to arrive safely at adequate pain control—a route that is different for every patient. Preoperative, perioperative and postoperative approaches for effective pain management will be discussed. Dr. Young will explain how narcotics work and how they compare to each other and to other forms of pain control, along with dosing, how dependence and addiction occur and how that differs by age and by psychological make-up. He will cover the controlled-substances prescribing laws and how to recognize and address addiction and drug-seeking behavior.


You Will Learn:

  • To identify the neurological and psychological mechanisms of pain
  • How to treat those mechanisms with narcotics and non-narcotics
  • When to prescribe narcotics and how to manage the regimen
  • To assess the medical and legal risks of narcotics


Acid Attack: How to Diagnose and Manage Erosive Tooth Wear

Rebecca Moazzez, BDS, MSc, PhD


This lecture will focus on erosive tooth wear (ETW), its prevalence and why it is important to diagnose and treat. Dr. Moazzez will discuss the etiology, source of acids, methods of detection and diagnosis of the condition. During the interactive presentation, she will examine the risk factors and introduce the basic ETW index. Participants will learn how to use the index in their practices. There will be discussion about various medical conditions associated with ETW and the role of saliva and pellicle. Lastly, the presentation will include the concept of minimally invasive management of ETW.


You Will Learn:

  • To recognize the etiology of erosive tooth wear (ETW)
  • To detect and diagnose ETW and to utilize the basic ETW index
  • To analyze the role of saliva and pellicle in ETW
  • How to integrate minimally invasive management of ETW into patient care
