Family abuse is a global problem, but it touches every one of us either directly or indirectly. If we accept that each member of the dental team does have a role to play, the challenge is in knowing how we can help our patients.
And Dr. Jim Grisdale will warn us about “The Dark Side of Implants: Complications, Diagnosis & Management”.
Dr. Fiona Collins will then present “Dry Mouth: Etiology, Complications and Management & Management of Pre- and Post-procedural Pain”. This presentation begins with a review of the prevalence and etiology of dry mouth, and its role as a risk factor for oral diseases and conditions.

Hernan Veras will show us how to create an “Effective Case Presentation to Get Case Acceptance Every Time”.
Allyson Taylor will educate us about “Human Trafficking: Street Signs and Recruitment Methods”. Human trafficking is occurring in every community in Kentucky but often goes unrecognized because of misconceptions held by those in a position to interact with and assist trafficking victims. This presentation focuses on dispelling those myths and giving attendees insight into how traffickers recruit victims and how those victims may present in daily life.
In his course, “Mission Based Dentistry - An Out of Office Experience!”, Dr. Joseph Jacobi will introduce us to a different mode of practice - that of mission-based dentistry to relieve pain and suffering.
