September 13th, 2018
Dr. Panos Papaspyridakos, Division of the Postgraduate Prostodontics, Tufts University School of Dental Medicine and Visiting Assistant Professor at the University of Rochester Eastman Institute for Oral Health will talk about loading protocols for Dental Implants.
Tuesday April 10th, 2018 Dr. Khaled El Rafie. He will be discussing Innovations in Implant Prosthodontics.
Thursday February 15, 2018 with Dr. Zachary Peacock. He will be discussing Advanced Bone Grafting for Implants.
Dr. Gili Naveh will discuss “Accelerated tooth movement: differentiating fiction from facts” on Tuesday November 14th, 2017
Thursday, September 21, 2017 at the University Club, 219 Benefit Street, Providence, RI. Dr Timothy Osborne from the oral and maxillofacial surgery department at Boston University School of Dentistry will speak on dental implant related nerve injuries. The second most frequent malpractice claim in oral surgery is nerve injury related to the placement of dental implants, a close second behind extraction of the wrong tooth. Tim speaks on this topic nationally and will have new statistics and tips on how to stay out of trouble.

Course Description Traditional restorative dentistry relies on cementation to attach restorations to natural teeth. Although dentists are relatively proficient in this area, they are often less familiar using cements with dental implants restorations. Several techniques and products have been developed for cementing implant-retained restorations, however, existing protocols may vary from practice to practice. Many types of cement are problematic; some corrode titanium and most are undetectable on radiographs. This lecture will examine these issues and give up-to-date and as-of-yet unpublished research data that in order to determine a suitable protocol for use in clinical practice.
Tuesday April 11, 2017. Speaking will be Andre B. de Souza, DDS, MSc
Challenging Peri-Implant Bone Remodeling: Implant-Abutment Configuration and Hard Tissue Stability
Course Description: Peri-implant bone remodeling after implant placement is a physiological process that occurs as a part of the establishment of peri-implant biologic width. Several attempts have been made to minimize the amount of peri-implant bone remodeling. Clinical trials have shown that the platform switching concept leads to superior results in terms of the amount of peri-implant bone loss. We will also review how the abutment geometry could also influence the amount of peri-implant bone remodeling and how CAD-CAM technology could be used to design appropriate abutment configuration in order to favor the peri-implant soft tissue adaptation and reduce bone modeling.
