Academy of General Dentistry
Overdenture Course Assignment
M. Nader Sharifi, D.D.S., M.S.

Fabricate and document an overdenture using some of the techniques demonstrated during this course. This must include the following:
I. An Overdenture with natural tooth or implant retention
A. Outline the locations used for the natural tooth roots or implants.
B. Describe your Overdenture as Implant Retained or Supported.
C. Identify the Attachments as Resilient or Rotational (both if a bar).
D. Identify your overdenture’s fulcrum line for mucosal support.
II. Outline the impression technique used for the final impression of the denture base. Describe the challenges encountered with this choice.
A. Explain the technique for picking up the attachments in your case.
III. The teeth should be set-up & delivered in one of the occlusions we discussed.
A. Describe the occlusal scheme you selected and explain why.
B. Identify the buccal contacts in centric or eccentric movements.
C. Describe the balancing side contacts in eccentric movements.
IV. Discuss the post-operative follow-up that was required for this case.
A. How many adjustments – occlusal or acrylic?
B. How much chairtime was necessary?
C. Describe your patient’s reaction to the restoration.
V. Compare and contrast to other participants who delivered with alternative reline impression materials, implant locations, attachment types and their impact on patient comfort and satisfaction.


 

Academy of General Dentistry
RPD Course Assignment
M. Nader Sharifi, D.D.S., M.S.

Fabricate and document a removable partial denture using some of the techniques demonstrated during this course. This must include the following:
I. A case with at least one free-end saddle.
II. A case that is classified as ACP Class III or IV
A. Support your classification
III. A case that may or may not include C&B with attachments or implants
IV. Describe your framework design and support your decision.
A. Support your major connector selection.
B. Identify your framework’s support areas and stabilizing areas.
C. Identify your framework’s retention – be it clasps or attachments.
D. Identify your framework’s fulcrum line for saddle displacement.
E. Identify the indirect retainer(s).
V. The framework impression can be made with any impression material, but fabricated with three times the normal relief to allow for the next requirement.
VI. Deliver the case with a laboratory processed reline (not a chairside reline) rather than an altered cast impression.
A. The lab reline impression can be made with any impression material, but preference is given to the functional impression technique described.
VII. The teeth should be set-up and delivered in a “lingualized” occlusion.
A. No buccal contacts in centric or eccentric movements.
B. Balancing side contacts exist in eccentric movements.
VIII. Discuss the post-operative follow-up that was required for this case.
A. How many adjustments – occlusal or acrylic?
B. How much chairtime was necessary?
C. Describe your patient’s reaction to the restoration.
IX. Compare and contrast to other participants who delivered with alternative reline impression materials and their impact on patient comfort and satisfaction.


 

Protocol presentations offer attendees to more than double their CE participation hours earned per program.

As an aspiring Master in the AGD, it is both an honor and an obligation to be able to share your knowledge and experiences with others. There is no better format to improve those presentation skills than with the protocol reporting sessions available to those who have taken a PACE/ CERP approved participation course. The objective of taking a participation course and then doing a protocol session is to (1) instruct the participant in the practical application of a skill(s), (2) for the participant to do that procedure(s) in his/her office, and (3) to then show the protocol facilitator (and others presenting that day) how this procedure was done by you. In short: See it done, Do it in your office, and Teach others by showing what you have done. You will learn the most from the “teach” part of this triad! So, what is the best way to “teach”? Tell the “story” about the case/s. Yes, from “once upon a time” to “happily ever after” with all that went on between the two. The method is the same. Deliver this story so that each member of the audience can share the experience simultaneously. Suggestions: Do a PowerPoint presentation, with good photos to support the “story”, handouts, models (or photos of the models), and a literature search to support the case. Remember that the story is first, the photos support it. Not the other way around! **Sit in on a protocol session and see how others present. Emulate a style you like; others will like it, too.

This might be an outline to follow:

1. Title to describe what the presentation is about

2. Patient chief complaint

3. Medical/ Dental/Social history

4. Pre-operative dental charting.

5. Established need for treatment: Diagnosis(s)

6. Prognosis

7. Treatment plan with objectives & rationale for treatment provided

8. Photographs, radiographs, and models (if applicable) of the case prior to starting treatment.

9. Photographs, radiographs, and models as the case progresses

10. What went right; what went wrong.

11. Post treatment photographs, radiographs, and documentation.

12. What was learned from this case? What would you do differently next time?

Think about this as if you are a member of the audience and would like to know everything about the case. You want to know about the patient, the problems, the treatment plan and how it was carried out, the problems encountered and how they were solved (or not), the materials used, the final result and how you would do the case if given another chance. You have information others need! Develop the skill to share it!
