     Direct Posterior Composite Restoration and Adhesives: What You Really Need to Know!
     Stony Brook University, School of Dental Medicine
     Speaker: Dr. Gary Alex
     March 11, 2015

    Direct posterior composites are the "bread and butter" of most restorative practices and proper management of the adhesive interface is crucial for predictable placement. This requires an understanding of the materials being utilized, the substrate being bonded to, and a correct and precise clinical protocol. The very latest materials, adhesives, techniques, and controversies will be discussed. Dr. Alex will present a practical step by step methodology and rational for the placement of direct posterior composites based on the latest research and materials. This program will be presented in lecture format only. This program is consistently one of the highest rated programs at major dental meetings. Dr. Alex is considered to be one of the best teachers in dentistry today and has lectured and published internationally on materials, occlusion, esthetics, prosthetic, and restorative dentistry.

    Implant Dentistry: Diagnostic, Surgical and Prosthetic Keys to Success
    New York, NY
    March 30 – April 1, 2015

    The International Program in Implant Dentistry at the School of Dental Medicine at Stony Brook University is designed for general dentists with some training in oral surgery, periodontology, prosthodontics or implant dentistry who are interested in incorporating the most advanced knowledge, technology and procedures into their daily practice. While attendees do not treat patients in the clinic, they will participate in sessions for treatment planning and sequencing clinical work, observation and discussion of recorded surgeries, prosthodontic procedures, and workshops on surgical guides and soft and hard tissue grafting procedures. Knowledge and management of specific devices and tools used in implant dentistry will improve the quality and predictability of the treatment.

    Speaker list and additional information coming soon!



     New Horizons in Endodontics
     Stony Brook University, Wang Center Room 301
     Speaker: Dr. Jerome Cymerman
     April 24, 2014

    This lecture will concentrate on two areas. 1) How to incorporate new material science, such as bioceramic technology and efficient rotary instrumentation into your clinical practice, and 2) How to perform root canal therapy in such a manner that you actually enhance the long-term prognosis of the tooth. The goal of this program is to have all dentists learn how to perform endodontics in such a manner that they can offer their patients a predictable way of preserving their natural dentition in the long run.

    Included in the lecture component will be a thorough discussion concerning diagnosis, access, non-surgical and surgical ultrasonic use, irrigation, instrumentation, and obturation techniques. Particular emphasis will be placed on developing endodontic synchronicity between a machined preparation and a laser verified master bioceramic coated cone. Additionally, a new instrumentation and obturation technique (ESX® NiTi rotary instrumentation and Bonded Obturation) will be introduced. All participants will have the opportunity to validate these concepts during the hands-on session.

    The hands-on session provides the participants the opportunity to use "Real World" techniques and to witness first-hand, how they will change the way they practice endodontics. Time will also be dedicated to "Preventing the Separation of Rotary Files" and proper restoration of an endodontically treated tooth.

    Update Digital Technology 2015
    New York, NY
    June 12, 2015

    Interdisciplinary treatment utilizing digital technology is the foundation of this meeting and all the expert teams and clinicians who will be speaking will illuminate that. The different dental teams participating in this unique event will bring real-world dentistry straight from their practices to the symposium stage and will engage each other and the audience, discussing and debating the best possible treatments utilizing the latest technology. Audience members will play an important role as they interact about the cases presented, pose questions to the teams and determine by vote who will have the honor of being distinguished the first-ever Digital Team Champion!
    The use of computer-aided tomography, computer assisted treatment planning, computer-guided surgery and CAD/CAM fabrication of restorations has been available for a variety of applications. Research and experiences with this technology allows us to fine tune its use and understand its applications and limitations better than ever before. The use of these advanced technologies will be demonstrated and reviewed by expert teams. Advantages, disadvantages and limitations will be discussed to ensure maximum benefits of computer technology to a successful treatment for the dentist and dental technician.
    •         To help clinicians to further their training in all aspects of digital dentistry and related treatments
    •         To teach practitioners to safely provide digital dentistry as part of a comprehensive surgical & restorative treatment plan
    •         To foster the professional networking as an enriching experience
    Speaker list and additional information coming soon!
