Drs. Isabel Mello and Juliana Santos and Ms. Suzanne Balcom

Topic: Educators Symposium

Synopsis: The generation gap in the classroom: how to interact, teach and assess.

This symposium will motivate a discussion about the impact of the generational gap between students and educators on the learning process. Does the assessment of students change when generations are different? How to better communicate with our students? These and other questions will be answered during the meeting. This year the symposium will benefit from the participation of an invited speaker: Suzanne Balcom from Wolfville, Nova Scotia, an experienced speaker on intergenerational relationships and who has been involved in dental practice management for several years. The educators attending the symposium will have the chance to learn from each other by discussing real teaching-learning situations.

Full-time and part-time educators are welcome.

Bruno Azevedo

Topic: Mastering CBCT in Endodontics

Synopsis: Diagnostic information directly influences clinical decisions. Accurate data lead to better treatment-planning decisions and potentially more predictable outcomes. The ability to assess an area of interest in 3-D eliminates the superimposition that is inherent in conventional radiographic imaging. Cone beam technology currently has numerous applications in the dental field. CBCT is having great impact and is dramatically changing case diagnosis and treatment. This hands-on interactive course is for beginners and intermediate users and will cover the interpretation of small volume high resolution scans acquired for endodontic purpose. It will demonstrate how to systematically review 3-D volumes to minimize time and maximize diagnosis. Advance registration required and space is limited.
Attendees a required to bring their own Windows compatible laptops. Macs are not recommended.

    Learning Objectives:

  • List cone beam technology's advantages over conventional radiography.
  • Apply CBCT imaging in the following cases: diagnosis of pain, vertical root fracture and treatment of internal and external resorption.
  • Recognise key anatomical structures in 3-D and understand techniques to minimize artifacts during 3-D interpretation, treatment planning and treatment outcomes in the daily practice.
