OSHA - Safety After the Curve

OSHA - Safety After the Curve

Dec 1, 2020

Jackie Dorst (1.0 CE) presents on OSHA safety precautions and changes brought on by COVID 19. A Respiratory Protection Plan must be added to the OSHA Manual as well as the Hazard Plan, Infection Control Plan and General Safety Plan.

Safety Training must include safety for aerosol disease transmission. The SARs-CoV-2 virus aerosol disease transmission requires different PPE, employee wellness screening and patient scheduling for aerosol mitigation.

Jackie Dorst’s webinar updates the ortho team on the latest safety precautions to prevent aerosol disease transmission. During the COVID19 Pandemic, there has been an abundance of information from CDC, OSHA, and ADA. So much new information on this novel virus is confusing and scary. It’s important for the ortho team to understand what are the current facts and latest guidance for safe orthodontic care.

Jackie will share trustworthy information resources and record keeping forms to update the orthodontic team on Respiratory Protection and what must be included in the practice’s written Respiratory Protection Plan.

Learning Objectives:

  • List 5 airborne diseases that could be transmitted during orthodontic procedures
  • Distinguish between Standard Precautions, Contact Precautions and Aerosol Precautions
  • Demonstrate N95 seal test
  • Identify hazard for each of the 9 GHS pictograms

Virtual Insanity! Two-part session: Virtual Orthodontic Visits Before, During, and After a Global Pandemic & Bridging the Knowledge Gap

Virtual Insanity! Two-part session: Virtual Orthodontic Visits Before, During, and After a Global Pandemic & Bridging the Knowledge Gap

Dec 3, 2020

Two Teledentistry topics covered in one CE (1.25 CE) ...

Join Dr. Dan Bills for this Complimentary Business of Orthodontics webinar, Virtual Insanity! Virtual Orthodontic Visits Before, During, and After a Global Pandemic — As with many practices, Dr. Dan Bills was forced to develop a complete virtual treatment platform to continue to manage patients’ treatment during mandated closure during the pandemic. Serendipitously, Dr. Bills and his team learned a lot about the potential for virtual visits to enhance (not replace) the in-office patient experience to help deliver quality orthodontic care in an effective, efficient, and convenient manner — a mindset change which wouldn't have been explored pre-pandemic.

Learning Objectives:

  • Discuss the concept of virtual orthodontic consultations as a tool for quality orthodontic offices to provide the convenience that some patients are craving. (Pre-Pandemic Mindset)
  • Explain in detail a Virtual Treatment Platform that was developed in order to manage patients’ treatment during mandated closure (Pandemic Mindset)
  • Explore what this forced workflow change has taught us about the perceptions and logistics of virtual visits, and how we have successfully utilized them to improve our practice now that we are back in the office treating patients (Post-Pandemic Mindset)

Immediately following Dr. Bills, Teledentistry Legislation expert Amber Lovatos will discuss Bridging the Knowledge Gap and Navigating Teledentistry Policy. Amber will walk you through considerations for participating in teledentistry; state practice acts, billing, insurance reimbursement, legislation, codes, HIPAA, technology, licensure, barriers, and other considerations.

Learning Objectives:

  • Learn to dissect your specific state dental practice act for possible limiting verbiage to telecommunication in dentistry.
  • Learn to identify barriers to teledentistry and how-to address
    them.
  • Develop teledentistry opportunities while remaining compliant with your state’s practice act.

Avoiding Premolar Extractions with TAD-assisted Expansion Protocol

Avoiding Premolar Extractions with TAD-assisted Expansion Protocol

Jan 21, 2021

Join Dr. Marianna Evans (1.25 CE) for Avoiding premolar extractions with TAD-assisted expansion protocol

Conventional tooth-supported palatal expanders can at times produce unfavorable periodontal outcomes. The introduction of the temporary skeletal anchorage into rapid maxillary expansion appliances eliminates orthopedic forces applied directly to the teeth. In doing so, orthodontists can avoid adverse periodontal effects, achieve required skeletal maxillary expansion in non-growing patients without surgery and control skeletal and dental post-expansion movements in three dimensions. 

Premolar extractions are often necessary in the situations of severe crowding with objectives to minimize periodontal attachment loss and optimize esthetics. This webinar will discuss TAD-assisted expansion protocol to allow periodontally acceptable non-extraction therapy.

Learning Objectives:

  • To discuss the maxillary and mandibular crowding - skeletal perspective.
  • To discuss periodontal perspective of addressing crowding with maxillary skeletal expansion versus premolar extraction therapy
  • To review extreme crowded cases treated with TAD-assisted expansion protocol - paradigm shift in orthodontics.
