COURSE OUTLINE: Diagnosis is one of the most important and challenging roles of being a dentist.

This lecture will review the important steps in identifying and managing common and rarer conditions of the jaws through an interactive case-based approach. The principles and steps to performing a complete oral examination and radiologic interpretation will also be reviewed. Participants will become more confident and better equipped to care for patients who present with the unusual.


• The principles of examination

• The steps to performing a complete soft tissue oral examination

• The steps to performing a complete radiologic interpretation

• To recognize some common hard and soft tissue variations of normal and radiographic artifacts

• To recognize features of some common abnormalities

• To recognize features of uncommon, but significant, abnormalities

• The options for management of patients

Lecture Outline & Educational Objectives
SATURDAY, JUNE 7th 9:00am – 12:00pm

Technology Can Be Your Friend & Help You Give Your Patients

The Smile They Want & Deserve
Dr. Paquette

1. Integrating technology into the orthodontic practice, the truth on CBCT and the transition to the impressionless practice with intraoral scanning.


There are many myths and misunderstandings surrounding CBCT and its use in the orthodontic practice. We will review current knowledge and discuss how it can be integrated to benefit patients.  We will also review the state of the art of intraoral scanning and the transition to the impressionless practice.


Educational objectives: The attendee will learn the advantages and disadvantages of 2-D vs 3-D as well as relative levels of radiation.  Attendees will also learn the current state of technology available for eliminating impressions in the orthodontic practice.


2.  A non-surgical approach to impacted canines


Impacted canines are frequently encountered in the orthodontic practice. Methods will be reviewed to help the orthodontist avoid surgical intervention in many situations.


Educational objectives:  Attendees will gain an understanding of normal vs ectopic eruption and how properly timed orthodontic treatment can avoid surgical intervention in many situations.


3.  Advanced esthetics


For most patients today, a great smile is more than straight teeth. We will review diagnostic and clinical approaches to improve clinical outcomes for improved esthetics including approaches for hard and soft tissue contouring.


Educational objectives:  Attendees will learn how combining orthodontic treatment, smile design and adjunctive treatments can improve esthetic results of orthodontic treatment.
