Dental Trauma: An Evidence-Based Approach

CDE Credits: 14   |   Course Fee: $475

The focus of this symposium will be dental trauma. This 2-day course will be comprehensive in nature and will cover wide range of topics. This symposium will be lead by Dr. Jens Andreasen, a luminary in dental trauma, and a giant whose works are recognized and applied worldwide. This course should be informative to all dental disciplines and especially to endodontics, pediatric dentistry, oral surgery as well as orthodontics and periodontics. Our special guest, Dr. Kang Ting, will discuss how his team first discovered novel gene NELL-1, that could potentially help diverse patient populations, including those with traumatic bone injuries, such as members of the military or even astronauts who lose bone density while in space. His presentation will discuss implications of orofacial injuries and how to bring paradigm shifting bone research to clinical trials.

Symposium Topics:

  • Soft Tissue Healing

  • Dental Injuries Due to Trauma - Healing & Prognosis

  • Pulpal Pathosis and Effects of Dental Materials

  • Long-Term Sequelae and Alternative Treatments
