Patients, Pills & Pathologies: Why Medical History Clues are Critical to Dental Treatment
Amber D. Riley, MS, RDH
The number of Americans over the age of 65 exceeds 15% of the population and that number will increase by more than 20% over the next few decades. As patient life expectancy increases, so will the number of conditions, diseases and potential disabilities that these patients will present with in our dental chairs.
On a daily basis, we encounter medically compromised patients with age-related diseases such as cancer, lifestyle-associated factors such as drug use and obesity, and abnormal physical conditions that demand a sharpened focus during our treatment planning, delivery of care and periodontal maintenance in general dentistry. These patients require clinicians who have competent insight into medicine and pharmacotherapies, and are capable of deducing findings from patient medical histories and are willing to collaborate with patients' medical providers to provide optimal dental care.

Overcoming Clinical Challenges in Restorative Dental Practice—An Evidence-based and Pragmatic Approach
Jeff Brucia, DDS
Balancing a busy day in private practice with the many different materials and techniques we are all exposed to can be confusing, frustrating and overwhelming. Accurate diagnosis, proper material selection and great clinical skills are critical to manage teeth with failing restorations, deep caries and tooth cracks. Minimally invasive procedures have proven to provide predictable and long-lasting results when the best techniques are applied. During this fast-paced lecture, Dr. Brucia will use science to support the step-by-step clinical presentations of several cases. He will also introduce advanced restorative and adhesive concepts.
