Advanced Ultrasonics Workshop
Winnipeg, MB
November 13, 2019


Staying Ahead of the Ultrasonic Curve 

COURSE TYPE:  Advanced Ultrasonic Workshop
COST: Discussion/Mini Hands-on  – $80 (Members) $160 (non members)   
Max Attendance 24 *
FACILITATOR: Dani Botbyl, RDH
COURSE LENGTH:   6:30 p.m. – 9:30 p.m. (3 hours) 
LOCATION: Dr. Gerald Niznick, College of Dentistry Brass Lab

 Sponsored by Dentsply Sirona Canada 

COURSE DESCRIPTION:
The science behind ultrasonic debridement is changing rapidly!  New research shows that Canadian dental hygienists are not keeping pace and are underutilizing curved ultrasonic instruments. This one-of-a-kind workshop combines cutting-edge teaching methods with active ultrasonic equipment to focus on complete calculus removal and biofilm removal/disruption. RDHs of all levels will see improved clinical performance after completing this workshop.

Participants will work with provided typodonts and magnetostrictive units/inserts.
 
LEARNING OUTCOMES:Identify technique oversights that hinder clinical outcomes – demonstrate the most effective principles of ultrasonic instrumentation including grasp, fulcrum, insertion, lateral pressure, activation and adaptation.Increase removal of calculus and biofilm – compare ultrasonic instruments characteristics and demonstrate technique needed to reduce the adjunct use of hand instruments.Simplify curved left and right instruments – demonstrate most effective curved instrument adaptation in furcations, concavities and curved root surfaces; state the rationale for eliminating curettes.

Panoramic Radiographs in Dentistry – CE Opportunity

Posted by on Sep 4, 2019 in Uncategorized | 0 comments

Course Description

Panoramic radiography is a commonly used imaging modality in dental practice and can be a valuable diagnostic tool in the dentist’s armamentarium. However, the panoramic image is a complex projection of the jaws with multiple superimpositions and distortions, which may be exacerbated by technical errors in image acquisition. Furthermore, the panoramic radiograph depicts numerous anatomic structures outside of the jaws, which may create additional interpretation challenges.

Successful interpretation of panoramic radiographs begins with an understanding of the normal anatomy of the head and neck and how it is depicted in this image type. A systematic and repeated approach to examining panoramic radiographs will be reviewed to ensure that critical findings are not overlooked. Examples of challenging interpretations, including variations of anatomy, artefacts and disease, will be presented to illustrate these concepts.
