The August 2017 Symposium sessions admirably demonstrated our ability to avail members of SMCDS talent without unfairly promoting one member over another.  To the contrary, having members present to their closest colleagues in a relatively intimate setting; i.e., SMCDS seminar room, gave attendees the sense of having acquired not only knowledge but a supportive resource if / when needed beyond the classroom.  Terrific CE, up close and personal.  We're doing it again August 2018.

Osteotome and Lateral Antrostomy Subantral Osseous Grafting
for Implant Placement



Seminar Room


Includes light dinner

1 Core CE

There has been a major shift in the need for dentists to understand the maxillary antum in health and disease. This has resulted from implant placement in the maxillary posterior segments and the use of modern radiographic imaging techniques which provide not only information useful for implant placement, but also may be suggestive of abnormal anatomy as well as sinus pathology.
Presentation highlights ?basic histological and physiological understanding of the maxillary antrum and pathological conditions that affect subantral grafting as well as presenting surgical.

Stanley Sun, DDS

Implant Complications and Prevention

Presentation highlights ?With the increase in the placement and restoration of implants, there has been a commensurate increase in implant-related complications.  Thus, it is important to prevent such complications when possible, to recognize them when they do occur, and to know what treatments offer the best chance of a successful outcome.  Dr. Sun will be discussing modalities to prevent, recognize, and treat implant-related complications.

Impacted Third Molars for the General Practitioner



Seminar Room


Includes light dinner

1 Core CE

Most dentists receive minimal oral surgery training in dental school.  All challenging procedures are referred to AEGD, GPR, and Oral Surgery residencies. Many dentists practice for years and are not comfortable with surgical exodontia.  Case selection and fundamental surgical principles can make the removal of impacted third molars safe and predictable. At the end of this lecture participants should be able to ?Assess panoramic x-rays for proper case selection ?Use appropriate surgical technique, instruments, materials, and medication ?Reduce complications including nerve injury, sinus opening, tooth displacement, infection, and root fracture ?Implement good procedure documentation including consent forms/informed consent, SOAP progress notes, and post-operative instructions.
