Toronto, ON-Ontario Dental Association Annual Spring Meeting             Thursday April 26, 2018

    Lasers: From the Science to Clinical Applications:

                Understanding the Role and Limitations of Lasers in Everyday Dentistry and Hygiene

         Instructor: Scott D. Benjamin, D.D.S.

The number and applications of dental lasers on the market today are growing at an ever-increasing rate. The wide range of devices and applications for both hard and soft tissue, as well as pain control and enhanced healing, is leading to much confusion of the various roles that lasers may or may not play in today’s dental practice. The goal of this lecture is to enhance the clinician’s knowledge of the science of how lasers truly function, including laser safety, tissue interaction, infection control and the ergonomics involved, which are crucial for the successful selection and implementation of a laser into everyday dentistry.

    Tufts University's 13th Annual Oral Cancer Symposium   

         Instructors: Mark Lerman, D.M.D., Scott D. Benjamin, D.D.S.John R. Kalmar, D.M.D., Ph.D, et al

Oral cancer remains the most common disfiguring and deadly disease that oral health care providers, including general dentists, specialists, physicians and staff, are likely to encounter in practice. This course provides clinicians with the knowledge to understand the various etiologic factors of oral cancer, and enhances their ability to recognize early potentially malignant and malignant changes within the oral cavity. Course attendees will learn to effectively communicate with their patients regarding appropriate management. This course also discusses the complex nature of such treatment and the complications that may ensue, as well as their potential to affect dental treatment.

Learning Objectives:

  • Name conventional and newly-recognized factors for oropharyngeal and oral cancer, including human papillomavirus infection
  • Describe radiographic findings that suggest when a biopsy is appropriate or when a lesion may be monitored instead
  • List the oral complications of oral cancer therapy and their implications for the dentist
  • Outline a management strategy for patients with stage IV oral cancer
  • Define the complications associated with the surgical and medical management of head and neck cancer
