Course Description:

This 2-day course will have a specific goal: to teach today’s general practitioner disciplines in oral medicine. The focus will be on recognizing different pathological syndromes and how to curatively treat them. Included will be a summary of specific oral medications used in dentistry for pain management, infection control and growth factors in healing. This course will not only train the attendee what different medications do and how they are used, but will also demonstrate these concepts with a hands-on approach.

Course Objectives:

The lecture portion of the course will focus on:
1. The use and fundamentals of medications used in pain control
2. The use of medications to control infections of the oral cavity
3. How medications are used in dentistry as a base for treatment diagnosis in pathology
4. Medications that specifically control and/or help cure common pathological syndromes
5. How to use Botox to help a patient with certain pathological syndromes that plague dentistry and cosmetics
6. How harvesting a patient’s own blood for blood based biologics can make a treatment plan successful
7. How growth factors help build better results in bone grafting

The hands-on portion of the course will focus on:
1. Demonstrating on each other different injection techniques used for pain control in dentistry
2. Making treatment medication and appliances for immune-based pathological syndromes
3. How to combine antibiotics and biologics in bone grafting techniques
4. How to draw blood from a patient and harvest it for a patient-borne biologics
5. How to inject Botox medium on each other for common dental problems

Supplies to bring: Gloves, Loupes, scalpel blade handles and blades, scissors, hemostats, tissue forceps, masks, amalgam
pluggers, sutures (the cheapest you can find), Syringes with short and long gauge needles.
