    The Advanced Accreditation Workshop provides an in-depth analysis of how Accreditation cases are evaluated and is a great opportunity for participants to have their own cases reliably critiqued. This workshop is universally viewed as the most helpful step for individuals working toward Accreditation. Participants are encouraged to have taken the two required workshops in the credentialing process prior to attending this advanced course. All participants are encouraged to bring clinical cases for review, whether completed or in the case selection phase. All cases should be loaded on a memory stick in the AACD’s PowerPoint® template which is available for download on the AACD website.

    For identification purposes during the workshop, write your name, member number, and case type on each memory stick using a permanent marker.

    Educational Objectives:

    AADADHLTPGT
    As dentists begin to recognize the impact of dysfunctional breathing, managing the problem will become an important component of comprehensive restorative dental care. The interdisciplinary airway resolution strategies typically lend themselves to dental reconstructions. Dr. Rouse has developed a protocol for evaluating the relative health of the autonomic nervous system of the patient with fully reversible procedures. The patients reaction to the therapy will help determine the next level of referral to resolve the airway limitation.

    Educational Objectives:
    1 . Understand that breathing disorders are much more than apnea
    2 . Develop a strategy to screen patients in a restorative practice
    3 . Create an autonomic nervous system trial to direct the practitioner in developing an interdisciplinary health and dental plan

    W165 - Discolored Teeth: The Direct Composite Resin Approach
    Jason Smithson, BDS
    More
    DAD
    Teeth become discolored for a variety of reasons: tetracycline staining, loss of vitality after restoration with silver amalgam, or if treated with full coverage crowns. Today this would be considered unnecessarily destructive. Sometimes these teeth are amenable to bleaching, but sometimes that fails or is not appropriate. In
    this course, an upper incisor tooth is restored with a direct composite resin veneer utilizing varying opacities of resin to mask the discoloration yet maintain a lifelike level of translucency. Also experience an efficient stepwise polishing protocol which enables the operator to recreate enamel macro and micro-morphology to render
    the restoration indistinguishable from natural tooth structure.

    Educational Objectives:
    1 . Examine the diagnosis of tooth discoloration – not all are created equal
    2 . Select the optimal resin for discolored tooth – microfill vs . nano vs . microhybrid
    3 . Demonstrate tooth preparation (layering and finishing) to recreate natural tooth structure

    W257 - Restoring The Peg Lateral Incisor: The Direct Composite Resin Approach: A Half-Day Master Class
    Jason Smithson, BDS
    More
    DLT
    The peg lateral incisor is a form of microdontia, which is fairly prevalent, and indeed is found in between 0.3 and 8.4 % of the general population. Classically, this tooth form presents an orthodontic and esthetic defect and patients often request a restoration. Typically, placement is technically demanding in terms of masking
    shine through; incisal edge position, emergence profile and contact points. Restoration in composite resin is often more conservative and less costly than ceramics. In this engaging presentation, Dr. Smithson will discuss a general overview of microdontia, the fabrication of a simple PVS stent to allow control of palatal form, the role of opaque composite to block out unwanted light transmission, opalescence and the incisal halo, and much more.

    The Hands-On Component:
    An upper lateral incisor tooth is restored with direct composite resin using a simple elegant approach, which is predictable and confers significant time saving advantages over traditional layering protocols. Composite resin of varying chromaticity and translucence is employed to achieve the appearance of truly lifelike enamel and dentin in conjunction with a simple tinting technique, which recreates the incisal opalescence, in addition to superficial white enamel infractions. Finally the resin veneer is polished to emulate the natural enamel surface characteristics, thus achieving high-end esthetics and durability to rival ceramics.

    Educational Objectives:
    1 . To prepare or not to prepare? When, why and how
    2 . Learn how to layer with varying chromas to recreate a gradient from gingival to incisal
    3 . Understand how to simply create tight contact points

    Patients who want more ideal facial esthetics and function may choose treatment but run the risk of having teeth placed outside the alveolar walls. Surgically facilitated orthodontic therapy to alter the dentoalveolar and/or alveoloskeletal bone has the potential to optimally position the roots of the teeth for the patients face. Space
    may be appropriated to enable the restorative dentist to create natural tooth size and morphology in the worn, eroded or otherwise altered dentition. Surgical, orthodontic and restorative perspectives will be presented using a bottom-up, restoratively driven approach in the management of complex interdisciplinary therapy.

    Educational Objectives:
    1 . Appreciate dentoalveolar bone phenotypes and how to limit associated risks using SFOT

    G400 - St. Jacobs & Elmira – Mennonite Country Tour
    More
    G
    The village of St. Jacobs is located just one hour west of Toronto. The Mennonites trekked from Pennsylvania in Conestoga Wagons and settled in and around St. Jacobs in the late 1700s and early 1800s. Today, the old blacksmith shop still remains, as do the horse and buggy and historical buildings. Many of the original buildings remain housing art, crafts, gifts and antique shops.

    Once you arrive in the town of Elmira, a local Mennonite guide will board your coach and provide commentary on the history, beliefs, and lifestyles of this Mennonite district and its settlers. The highlight of this tour will certainly be Canada’s largest year-round Farmers’ Market.

    After selecting the finest produce from the Farmers’ Market or antiques and world-famous quilts in the shops, you’ll get to explore the last remaining covered bridge in Ontario and enjoy a hearty farmer’s lunch at the Stonecroft Inn. Then, a beautiful team of large draught horses will take you on a picturesque horse-drawn trolley tour.

    Patients don’t grade you based off your treatment plan, they grade you off how they are treated. It starts before you even pick up the phone. With so much access to medical data, patients frequently diagnose themselves. It is no longer what you present that matters, but how you present it. Get to know the “Why” behind your patient’s chief complaint and learn how to treat the patient, not just the disease. Acceptance is no longer based solely on need. Get them to say yes to you and not just your treatment.

    Educational Objectives:

Dentistry as a human capital business with success being in how we treat the “person” is currently treating five generations of patients. Each generation is diverse with their preferences, loyalty, choices and how they make decisions about their health and dentistry. There is a science and experience that shows how we can adapt to each segment with predictability when we understand their culture, motivations and priorities, all dependent on when someone is born and what they are exposed to in childhood, youth and as an adult.

Educational Objectives:
1 . Evaluate characteristics of each generation and their key patterns of motivation and loyalty
2 . Identify how each segment chooses your practice and their marketing preferences

W165 - Discolored Teeth: The Direct Composite Resin Approach
Jason Smithson, BDS
More
DAD
Teeth become discolored for a variety of reasons: tetracycline staining, loss of vitality after restoration with silver amalgam, or if treated with full coverage crowns. Today this would be considered unnecessarily destructive. Sometimes these teeth are amenable to bleaching, but sometimes that fails or is not appropriate. In
this course, an upper incisor tooth is restored with a direct composite resin veneer utilizing varying opacities of resin to mask the discoloration yet maintain a lifelike level of translucency. Also experience an efficient stepwise polishing protocol which enables the operator to recreate enamel macro and micro-morphology to render
the restoration indistinguishable from natural tooth structure.

Educational Objectives:
1 . Examine the diagnosis of tooth discoloration – not all are created equal
2 . Select the optimal resin for discolored tooth – microfill vs . nano vs . microhybrid
3 . Demonstrate tooth preparation (layering and finishing) to recreate natural tooth structure

This workshop will teach you how to easily make even the most complex, mal-aligned cases simple by following a proven, state-of-the-art, minimally-invasive protocol called “A.R.T.” (Additive-Reductive Template). This protocol will prevent the “over or under-prepping” of teeth, which often occurs when trying to master conservative esthetic dentistry. A.R.T. will give the conservative esthetic dentist unprecedented options and control. With proper planning and communication, minimally-invasive smile design can be predictable, and incredibly rewarding.

Educational objectives:

1. Quickly master minimally-invasive “smile design” dentistry
2. Properly manage the patient’s expectations on “no-prep” and “minimal-prep” cases
3. Learn a simplified, predictable, proven protocol (A.R.T.)

Heike Kramer, DMD, MSc
More
AADADHLTPGT
Harder materials, implants or long-term orthodontic retention are not the answers to failing teeth or dentistry. We need to understand the underlying cause of problems in order to achieve lifelong stable results. The primary focus in most dental treatment is towards teeth and occlusion. Unfortunately, dynamic function is not the main concern in diagnosis. However, the knowledge of the mandibular movement and the related occlusion parameters lead to successful dentistry as a comprehensive concept for all dental disciplines.

Educational Objectives:
1 . Importance of occlusal plane inclination, angle of the eminence, angle of disocclusion, and inclination of the guidance system to achieve predictable dentistry
2 . Importance of understanding the masticatory organ as a dynamic system
3 . Transition from repair dentistry to comprehensive care - learn the importance of bringing the jaws, muscles, and teeth into harmony

W257 - Restoring The Peg Lateral Incisor: The Direct Composite Resin Approach: A Half-Day Master Class
Jason Smithson, BDS
More
DLT
The peg lateral incisor is a form of microdontia, which is fairly prevalent, and indeed is found in between 0.3 and 8.4 % of the general population. Classically, this tooth form presents an orthodontic and esthetic defect and patients often request a restoration. Typically, placement is technically demanding in terms of masking
shine through; incisal edge position, emergence profile and contact points. Restoration in composite resin is often more conservative and less costly than ceramics. In this engaging presentation, Dr. Smithson will discuss a general overview of microdontia, the fabrication of a simple PVS stent to allow control of palatal form, the role of opaque composite to block out unwanted light transmission, opalescence and the incisal halo, and much more.

The Hands-On Component:
An upper lateral incisor tooth is restored with direct composite resin using a simple elegant approach, which is predictable and confers significant time saving advantages over traditional layering protocols. Composite resin of varying chromaticity and translucence is employed to achieve the appearance of truly lifelike enamel and dentin in conjunction with a simple tinting technique, which recreates the incisal opalescence, in addition to superficial white enamel infractions. Finally the resin veneer is polished to emulate the natural enamel surface characteristics, thus achieving high-end esthetics and durability to rival ceramics.

Educational Objectives:
1 . To prepare or not to prepare? When, why and how
2 . Learn how to layer with varying chromas to recreate a gradient from gingival to incisal
3 . Understand how to simply create tight contact points

G400 - St. Jacobs & Elmira – Mennonite Country Tour
More
G
The village of St. Jacobs is located just one hour west of Toronto. The Mennonites trekked from Pennsylvania in Conestoga Wagons and settled in and around St. Jacobs in the late 1700s and early 1800s. Today, the old blacksmith shop still remains, as do the horse and buggy and historical buildings. Many of the original buildings remain housing art, crafts, gifts and antique shops.

Once you arrive in the town of Elmira, a local Mennonite guide will board your coach and provide commentary on the history, beliefs, and lifestyles of this Mennonite district and its settlers. The highlight of this tour will certainly be Canada’s largest year-round Farmers’ Market.

After selecting the finest produce from the Farmers’ Market or antiques and world-famous quilts in the shops, you’ll get to explore the last remaining covered bridge in Ontario and enjoy a hearty farmer’s lunch at the Stonecroft Inn. Then, a beautiful team of large draught horses will take you on a picturesque horse-drawn trolley tour.
