1. Clinical Operating Microscopes: They’re not Just for Endodontists Anymore
 

The use of magnification in general dentistry has greatly increased over the past 20 years. It has become popular with many restorative dentists to aid their vision with head-mounted loupes. Head-mounted magnification & lighting exhibits some major shortcomings for optimal clinical viewing. With the advent of the operating microscope for dentistry, we can overcome all of these problems. Dr. Nase uses the operating microscope in 95% of all dental procedures performed in his busy private practice, as well as teaching a multisession microdentistry course to the Advanced Education in General Dentistry (AEGD) residents at the Kornberg School of Dentistry. The latest in microdentistry will be demonstrated through the use of a digital multimedia presentation.

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

  • The microdentistry advantage in diagnosis & treatment
  • The problem of ergonomics in dentistry
  • Indications for magnification
  • Options for magnification systems
  • Microscope components
  • Principles of Magnification
  • QSP – Quadrant Specific Positioning
  • Direct vs. Indirect Viewing
  • Scope use illustrated by procedure
  • Documentation through the microscope
 
 
2. Suturing Techniques for the General Practitioner-Workshop
 

This course is designed as both a review of simple wound closure and an introduction to more complex suturing techniques, of which the general practitioner may find useful in everyday practice. After a review of general principles, the attendees will be able to actually see the techniques utilized through the use of digital video. They will then have a "hands-on" opportunity to practice those techniques using an orange.

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

  • Understanding wounds and the healing process
  • The A-B-C's of suture materials and instruments
  • Various interrupted suturing techniques
  • Various continuous suturing techniques
  • Knot tying
  • Suture removal
