IMPLANTOLOGY PRACTICES PIETER LINSSEN, DDS
Take your practice to the next level. Implant dentistry is the fastest growing and most profitable area in dentistry. Not to mention the standard for years to come. If you are already doing molar extraction and molar endo, this is the next step. With simple "slam dunk" cases your production will only increase. This opportunity will be the best decision you've ever made. Give your practice that cutting edge appeal, generate the level of care you want for yourself. The 3 unit bridge is an abacus in the age of computers.

COMPREHENSIVE DIAGNOSIS OF OBSTRUCTIVE SLEEP APNEA AND UNDERSTANDING THE SLEEP STUDY
Obstructive Sleep Apnea must be ultimately diagnosed by a board certified sleep physician after completion of a sleep study. The dentist however, plays an integral role in getting the suspected patient to the point of diagnosis. This webinar will discuss the screening and protocol for suggesting a sleep study, whether it be a full in-lab P.S.G. or an at-home sleep study. A detailed look at a typical sleep study will help the participant understand how to interpret the reports and fully understand the diagnosis.

STICK TO THE BASICS – THE SECRETS OF PREDICTABLE ADHESIVE DENTISTRY
We need restorative materials that stay put, don't leak, and don't cause sensitivity. Not too much to ask, right? Given the bewildering array of available materials and techniques, however, the pathway to restorative predictability is often anything but clear. This presentation summarizes the most current evidence regarding what works and what doesn't in adhesive dentistry and translates this knowledge into practical clinical tips that attendees can put to use immediately.

THE POWER OF A GREAT IMPRESSION: HOW TO MAKE IT & WHAT TO DO WITH IT
Nobody likes the goop and goo of dental impressions. The taste, mess, and bulk are uncomfortable for the patient. Impression materials are costly to a practice, and the impression taking process can be time consuming for the staff. But are digital impressions a better solution for my practice, and what can labs do with the files? This course will offer a look at the pros, cons, and options for traditional vs. digital impressions; review the opportunities and limitations of digital scans; evaluate materials and applications for digital files; discuss collaboration with the dental lab; and address the questions of practicality and cost to the dental practice.
