The Oral Cavity Under Acid Attack…
Identifying, Understanding and Treating Cavities, Erosion, and other Acid Related Diseases
8am – 12pm

As a dentist, personal trainer and fitness nutrition specialist, Dr. Geissberger brings a unique perspective to the subjects of caries, diet and the oral environment. Through this enlightening program, Dr. Geissberger will discuss various disease conditions that plaque the entire dental population, and identify several at risk populations. The importance of oral pH will be discussed and strategies for altering an unfavorable oral environment will be outlined. Additionally, the dental team will learn progressive strategies to help their patients achieve oral balance and curb their disease processes. Nutrition and diet control will be discussed extensively. At the completion of this program, clinicians will:

  • Understand the difference between a balanced oral environment and one that is susceptible to disease
  • Develop strategies which can be implemented in practice to help patients achieve oral balance
  • Develop a program for caries eradication that can be easily implemented into private practice
  • Develop strategies to begin to discuss the oral implications of poor eating strategies and provide some tips
  • Learn which materials should be used how to properly restore dentitions plagued with the effects of erosion, abrasion, GERD and bulimia

Lunch: 12pm – 1pm

What’s New in Esthetic Dentistry
1pm – 5pm

New materials, technology and techniques are developing at such a rapid pace that practitioners can become overwhelmed. Add to this the increased expectations of esthetic patients and the clinical performance of materials and the entire experience can be challenging.

This program will describe changes that have occurred over the last several years in the esthetic area and discuss patient factors that can significantly impact clinical success. New developments in technology and techniques will be outlined and demonstrated. Strategies and future trends that can keep you on the “cutting edge” will be presented. Additionally, my top ten list of things to have or do in order to be competitive in the esthetic arena will be shared.

During this program practitioners will:

  • Gain a working knowledge of the new advances in materials in the esthetic area.
  • Understand the trends and developments that lay ahead and develop strategies to adapt to these changes.
  • Gain better insight into what motivates the esthetic patient and how to deal with difficult clinical situations.
