Morning Session

Periodontal Classification AAP 2017

This course will discuss the updated periodontal classification system and give the rationale on why the system was updated.  Some cases will be presented with a diagnostic statement along with the reasoning on how the diagnosis was rendered.

Refer or Not?

This course will build on the information from the periodontal classification lecture and features examples of several actual patients with decision points.  The presentation will also touch on “what’s next” for several patients with examples of surgical treatment before, during, and aftercare.




Afternoon Session

Periodontal Medicine

This course will discuss the inter-relationships between periodontal disease and systemic disease.  This inter-relationship is a “double-edged sword” with systemic disease affecting periodontal disease and periodontal disease affecting systemic disease.  Inter-relationships are well documented in the literature and the rationale of why there is a co-dependence in many diseases will be addressed.

Chemotherapeutics in Periodontics

This course will discuss many of the medications and devices used in periodontics in the treatment of all stages of periodontal disease.  New products will be discussed and rationale given for the application/use of these devices.
