Target Audience
Program Purpose / Objectives

Day 1 (Dec 30, 2019): Seminar in Periodontics & Implant Dentistry (6 hours CE Credits)

Part 1:
The new classification system for periodontal and peri-implant disease and conditions

In 2018, Journal of Periodontology published the proceedings of the World Workshop on the Classification of Periodontal and Peri-Implant Diseases & Conditions. The new classification for periodontitis is based on a multidimensional staging and grading system. It is important for dental clinicians to understand and use the new system for diagnosis and communication purposes.

Learning Objectives: Upon completion of this course, the participants should be able to:
  • Diagnose periodontal and peri-implant conditions using the new classification system
  • Understand and discuss staging criteria for periodontal diseases
  • Understand and discuss grading criteria for periodontal diseases

Part 2:
Optimizing Implant Therapy: Do's and Don'ts

There has been a significant rise in use of dental implants on daily practices. That is in part due to its high predictability. However, despite good success rates, failures and/or unfavorable outcomes still remain a major problem which in many cases can be very costly, if not impossible, to fix. Fortunately, a large number of these shortcomings can be identified and addressed before the treatment even starts or at its early stages.

Learning Objectives: Upon completion of this course, the participants should be able to:
  • Assess case difficulty for dental implant treatment
  • Understand and discuss ways to enhance aesthetic outcomes for implants
  • Identify common surgical mistakes in implant dentistry and ways to avoid them
  • Identify common prosthetic mistakes in implant dentistry and ways to avoid them
  • Discuss proper maintenance protocols for patients with implant supported prostheses

Day 2 (Dec 31, 2019): Seminar in Endodontics (6 hours CE Credits)

Part 1:
Diagnosis in Endodontics
  • Fundamentals
  • Differential Diagnosis: Orofacial Pain and Pathology
  • Vertical Root Fractures and Cracks
The goal in Endodontic therapy is to save the tooth. Therefore, correct diagnosis is essential, leading to the development of an appropriate treatment plan. The diagnostic process begins with a patient interview and review of the medical and dental history, continues with clinical tests, and ends with the dental imaging.

Learning Objectives: Upon completion of this course, the participants should be able to:
  • Approach the case in a logical way and properly run the clinical and para-clinical tests to reach the correct diagnosis
  • Differentiate between odontogenic pain and common non-odontogenic pain
  • Decide to treat or not to treat a cracked tooth

Part 2:
Management of Endodontic Complications in a Daily Practice

Practice of dentistry is a demanding career and could be even more challenging in case of facing a complication during the treatment process. The best solution for complications is just to avoid them. However, they are an inevitable part of our practice and may occur to any practitioner at any level of knowledge and skill.

Learning Objectives:Upon completion of this course, the participants should be able to:
  • Avoid most of the complications by practicing proper diagnosis, treatment planning, and treatment
  • Identify the complications when they occur
  • Manage the complication as early as possible through evidence based methodology

Ports of Call

Port Canaveral, Florida - Port Canaveral lies just 35 miles east of Orlando, along the 72 miles of pristine beaches known as Florida's Space Coast. Besides its close proximity to Orlando's theme parks, you'll find space-age attractions of Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex, and the U.S. Astronaut Hall of Fame.

At Sea - Cruising - Cruising

Philipsburg, St. Maarten - An island under two flags. Sample the Dutch treats of Philipsburg: chocolate, cheese, delftware. On the French side linger over bouillabaisse, shop for Parisian perfumes.

San Juan, Puerto Rico - In days of yore, the waters near Puerto Rico teemed with pirate ships commanded by the likes of Sir Francis Drake. Aye, they are long gone, but in their wake they have left an island of national treasures: La Casa Blanca, built in 1501 for the island's first governor, Ponce de Leon; the cobblestone streets of Old San Juan; the tropical rain forests of El Yunque.  

Coco Cay, Bahamas - Located in the middle of the Caribbean's bright blue water lies the secluded island of CocoCay. With its white-sand beaches and spectacular surroundings, CocoCay is a wonderland of adventure. Reserved exclusively for Royal Caribbean guests, this tropical paradise has recently been updated with new aquatic facilities, nature trails and a ton of great places to just sit back, relax and enjoy a tropical drink.
