Take Advantage of our Friday Offerings!
On Friday morning, Dr. Edwin T. Parks, who is currently a Professor of Diagnostic Sciences in the Department of Oral Pathology, Medicine and Radiology at Indiana University School of Dentistry, will help you improve your radiographs and ability to recognize errors in technique. Update and refresh! Doctors and staff, new and experienced, will benefit.

In addition, Dr. Mark Murphy, Principal of Funktional Tracker and Lead Faculty for Clinical Education at Microdental, will help you Incorporate Sleep Apnea into your Practice, from Getting Started to Medical Billing. This course will allow you to survey the current landscape of medical and dental treatments for sleep apnea and decide how and if you want to evolve into this life saving arena.

Dr. Robert Henry teaches about Hypertension and Hypotension:  Common Problems and Simple Solutions, along with Mr. Paul Bowen, who will help you navigate the crossroads of incorporating IV Sedation into your practice.

Meanwhile, Dr. William Moorhead looks at the best new digital dental products and gives you the information you need to make an informed decision.

Patty Byrd will present her 2016 OSHA course, while Dr. Michael DiTolla’s course on the modern restorative practice will focus on what dentists spend most of their time doing: one and two unit cases.

Angie Currans will teach your staff how to submit “Clean Insurance Claims” and what that can do for your practice.

Then, meet Dr. Jeremy Bewley, Dr. Brad Harmon & Mr. Steven London, Sr. Their mission is to remove the mystery of CAD/CAM integration by engaging dentists who are investigating the technology with a hands-on course that is guided by some of the most experienced and successful CAD/CAM users in the state of Kentucky.

Dr. Alex Fleury, who currently serves as Assistant Professor at Baylor College of Dentistry, working with Endodontic Residents, will present “Restorative Endodontics: A Modern Standard of Care for Long-Term Success”, a lecture and hands-on session.

On Friday afternoon, meet Dr. Bill Curtis. When patients are not CPAP friendly and an oral appliance does not work Dr. Curtis will present an alternative surgical solution. He will also discuss and present surgeries for the removal and reconstruction of oral cancer and other pathology of the head and neck. Dr. Curtis is known as the oral surgeon's surgeon!

Then, Drs. Ryan Clagett, Kate von Lackum, and Bill Morgan will give a fresh and honest opinion of their experiences with implants - treatment planning, saving the failing implant, a 30 year retrospective of the evolution of implants and much much more. Doctors and all staff members will benefit!
Jason Zib, with Officite, will present “SEO after Mobilegeddon: More Patients, Less Panic”. Google dropped the “mobilegeddon” bomb on April 21, and SEO companies everywhere took cover. Now that the smoke is starting to clear, dentists everywhere have one question - what does the future of my search engine ranking look like? The answer might surprise you!
Make Your Saturday Schedule a Productive One!
First, learn a “Better Debridement Protocol” with Dr. Tim Donley...Internationally recognized speaker Dr. Tim Donley will teach a technique that he uses in a new course he has developed on more effective debridement. Open to hygienists and dentists.

Then, spend some time with Dr. Mark Nation...Time management, allocation of resources and a viable treatment plan with implants will all come together in this course.

Create more from less with Drs. Carla Rodriguez and Brandon Stapleton. Their course will guide you on how to rebuild occlusion and improve esthetics with direct composite. An alternate technique with milled composites will also be presented. This course will be great for doctors and expanded duty assistants!

Dr. William Ken Rich & Dr. Jerry Caudill will help you navigate Medicaid in 2016. With the arrival of the Affordable Care Act and Medicaid expansion in Kentucky, navigating the Medicaid system has changed. Since January 2014 Kentucky has added over 400,000 additional members, most of which were adults.  This substantially changes the demographic mix and brings the current total to approximately 1.2 million.  Avsis, representing the four largest Kentucky MCO’s, administers the dental benefits of approximately 1 million of those members. The Department of Medicaid Services (DMS) has recently made significant changes to 907 KAR 1:026, the guidelines for the Kentucky dental Medicaid program. In addition, some provider fees have been increased, CDT codes have been added, deleted, or changed and some prior authorization requirements have been eliminated, relaxed and/or changed by several MCO’s. These changes are more far reaching than just how and what providers get paid.   There is also a new level of compliance and oversight that is required by the Federal government.   This course will chronicle these changes, how they affect your practice and the ways your MCO partners can help you to be successful in providing care to the Kentucky Medicaid population.
Mr. Jeffrey Sexton will present his “18th Annual Economic & Investment Outlook: Back to Basics”. After 18 years of presenting at the KDA Annual Meeting, it is now (sadly!) possible to look back at actual advice and recommendations and discussions of prior presentations and make critical assessments of what worked and what didn’t. That’s called experience. Jeffrey’s first presentation in the Nunn Room of the Galt House was packed, way back in 1997. The internet was just this new-fangled thing we were starting to hear about. No iPhones. No iPads. The company called Apple was just beginning to show signs of actually surviving instead of going bankrupt. Microsoft ruled the world. A google was still a mathematical number and nothing else. The Motorola flip phones were the hottest thing going. Laptops were still rather heavy and clunky. Gateway made the best one and this guy named Dell was also starting to sell a few.
If you ever attended one of Jeffrey’s sessions the past 18 years but fell away for whatever reason(s), we hope you will take this opportunity to come back. A few folks that have attended almost every year, but it would be great to see some old (and you are older now!) faces again. It might be a good time for a “back to basics” investing refresher course from someone that has endured the same battles you have over past 18 tumultuous years. You’ll leave armed and reassured.

Mr. David Beyer, Executive Director of the Kentucky Board of Dentistry, will educate you about the“New Board Rules for Continuing Education Gathering and Other Tidbits of Information”.

Then, Dr. Deepak Krishnan, an American Board certified Oral & Maxillofacial Surgeon and the Residency Program Director at University of Cincinnati’s advanced training program in Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery, will help you avoid the pitfalls and take home the pearls for the oral surgeries you do in your office.

Modern Kids Endodontics...Dr. Justin Raybould will teach you the latest techniques to be more efficient in endodontics with the pediatric patient.

“The Boomers are coming…Are You ready? – Pearls and Principles for Effective Senior Adult Patient Care” First up, Dr. William Michael Mansfield – Understanding Older Adult Patients, the Oral/Systemic Connection and Effective Preventive Therapies for Senior Adults - This session will explore senior adult demographics, frailty and the physiology of aging. In addition, various connections that exist between oral health and systemic health will be discussed. Finally, proven preventive dental therapies and products that are available to help senior adults and their caregivers achieve and maintain good oral health will be highlighted.

Next up, Dr. Gustavo Oliveira – Effective Glass Ionomer Utilization in Older Adults - How should I use Glass Ionomers? Which placement techniques work best? Should I add Glass Ionomer Cements to my restorative material armamentarium? What are the best Glass Ionomer materials out there? Should I use what my rep is suggesting? This lecture will discuss a variety of aspects of Glass Ionomer Restorative materials that are part of our daily restorative practice. The latest and best available evidence out there regarding Glass Ionomer materials and techniques will be presented to help your team formulate, together with the patient, the best clinical decisions for various scenarios.

Finally, Dr. Demetra Antimisiaris – Polypharmacy: The Silent Syndrome - The impact of medication misadventure on the lives of our seniors and their caregivers is substantial yet often goes unrecognized. Typically older adults live with polypharmacy to manage multiple chronic disease states and geriatric syndromes such as dizziness, incontinence and cognitive impairment. This session will help participants develop skills that facilitate identification of and management approaches to medication related problems in older adults.

Dependable Sunday!
Sunday will bring our staple courses, “Basic Life Support-BLS Healthcare Provider Training” and Dr. George Kushner’s “Medical Emergencies in the Dental Office”.

In addition, Patty Byrd will present, “Recognizing Drug Abuse in Dental Patients and KASPER Update 2016”. Drug abuse is a major health problem in America and impacts every dental practice as well as our families. Dental professionals can play a huge role in drug abuse identification, prevention and intervention. Emphasis will be placed on increasing your skills and abilities to recognize the signs and symptoms of drug abuse, refer suspected drug abusers for help and treat recovering patients in your practice. This course satisfies the KBOD’s HB 1 KASPER requirement.
