Dinner Meeting

Treatment Planning in Implant Dentistry

Speaker: Dr. Nicolas Elian (Click for CV)

Credits: 2 CE Credits

General Membership Dinner Meetings are at no cost for M-OCDS members and $90 for non-members payable at the door.

This presentation will provide you with a comprehensive overview of diagnosis and treatment planning in Implant Dentistry. It is prudent first to evaluate accurate diagnosis and treatment planning for long term outcome. Owing to the significant amount of knowledge and experience that must be incorporated by practitioners who provide dental implant therapy, it follows that a primary factor responsible for complications and failures is often related to misdiagnosis and inadequate treatment planning. Topics covered will include extraction and immediate implant placement, provisionalization, and Immediate loading

Learning Objectives
This presentation will enable you to:

  1. understand the biological considerations and clinical realities for implant surgery
  2. evaluate the essential parameters necessary for the diagnosis, treatment planning, and integration of implant restorations in order to achieve successful rehabilitation of patients and avoid treatment complications
  3. Understand and identify the factors that can cause complications and diagnose them before treatment
  4. To describe the proper sequence of diagnosis and treatment planning, which when combined with proper surgical and restorative therapy may avoid many of the complications seen with implant therapy today

Obstructive Sleep Apnea Diagnosis and Treatments

Speaker: Kenneth Newkirk, MD (Click for CV)

Credits: 2 CE Credits

General Membership Dinner Meetings are at no cost for M-OCDS members and $90 for non-members payable at the door.

Sleep disordered breathing encompasses whole spectrum of upper airway breathing disturbances of which obstructive sleep apnea is one of its most severe forms. OSA may be associated with a number of physiological abnormalities including an increased risk of cardiovascular disorders (e.g. hypertension) and death. A number of treatment options are available for the management of OSA, both medical (e.g., CPAP) and surgical.  The objectives of this lecture are to understand the indications and/or role of oral appliances and some of the more recent advances in Sleep Medicine Soft Tissue Surgery including TORS (Transoral Robotic Surgery) and Hypoglossal Nerve Stimulation.


  • Update information on sleep physiology in adults
  • Understand the indications for CPAP and oral appliances in obstructive sleep apnea management
  • Understand the role DISE (Drug Induced Sleep Endoscopy)
  • Understand the surgical options for soft tissue management of the upper airway in adults – Otolaryngologist perspective
  • Understand the role of TORS (Transoral Robotic Surgery) and Hypoglossal Nerve Stimulation


  • Brief review of sleep medicine physiology
  • Role of CPAP and oral devices
  • Surgical techniques for sleep medicine – Otolaryngologist perspective
  • Surgical techniques
  • TORS (Transoral Robotic Surgery)
  • Hypoglossal Nerve Stimulation
  • Conclusions
