Course Synopsis

"Avoiding Restorative Failure" (6 CEs)
One of the things we dread in dentistry is case failure, and we lose sleep and stomach lining worrying about it. Cases fail for a multitude of reasons; some minor while others can be major disasters. The
underlying cause can be esthetic, functional, biologic or sometimes behavioral. A large majority of failures can be predicted before a case begins, but we don’t look for the warning signs. This program
will look at risk assessment in all four areas, and present a systematic approach for examination, diagnosis and treatment planning designed to minimize surprises and maximize case success.

Learning Objectives:
After attending this seminar, the participant will be able to:
1. Esthetic Evaluation & Risk Management
2. Understanding & Managing Functional Risk
3. Managing Caries Risk
4. Creating Patient Ownership

"Blood Pressure Protocol Training" (1 CE)
1 in 5 people may have hypertension and don’t even know they have it. The goal of this training is to help the audience to understand why accuracy in Blood Pressure measurement is critical in the identification and management of hypertension. Part of this training will be to educate on proper sizing of BP Cuffs and to demonstrate the correct way to take a BP. We will also discuss alternate sites for taking Blood pressure in a variety of settings. In addition, we will discuss some basic lifestyle modifications that have been proven to be helpful in lowering BP. We will recommend some tools for education and work flow ideas along with a statewide protocol that has been utilized in ND to help in
identification and management of hypertension.
