1. Diagnosis and Emergency Management in Clinical Endodontics 
 
Diagnosis of pulpal and periradicular disease is embedded into the art and science of clinical endodontics and without proper diagnoses, improper treatment can be rendered. This presentation will feature evidence-based contemporary diagnostic algorithms using time-tested procedures so that sound diagnoses and treatments can be provided to patients. In addition, diagnostic perplexities will be used to illustrate various clinical scenarios. Predictable approaches for the proper management of pain and/or swelling due to pulpal and periradicular disease will be highlighted as well.

At the conclusion of this course, attendees will be able to:

1. Cite current clinical endodontic diagnostic terms and their definitions.
2. Identify the best available tests for evaluating the status of the pulp and periradicular tissues.
3. Discuss the most predictable methods for alleviating pain and/or swelling due to pulpal and periradicular disease. 
 

2. Legal/Ethical Issues in Clinical Endodontics

Today’s clinician is faced with a potential myriad of legal and ethical issues that may increase risk if key principles are not adhered to. This presentation will illustrate ways to reduce risk with respect to litigation, ethical dilemmas, patient communications, and specialist-generalist interrelationships. Various real-life scenarios will be presented to illustrate concepts but special attention will be devoted to informed consent, the triad of litigation, medical history, dental “mistakes”, and documentation. 

At the conclusion of this course, attendees will be able to:

1. List critical areas of risk in the management of patients.
2. Define the parameters associated with negligence, standards of care, informed consent, and documentation.
3. Understand emerging legal and ethical concepts involving patient care.
4. Adopt practices to help reduce risk in dental practice.
