14 Wednesday 14 September Morning Sessions Looking to new paradigms of caries management by risk assessment John D.B. Featherstone (United States of America) Time: Room: Valparaiso 3 Language: English, Spanish Chairperson: Maria de Jesus Alonso Learning objectives After the presentation participants will be able to: Understand the process of dental caries as an infectious and transmissible disease Learn about the pathological and protective factors related to caries initiation, progression and prevention Understand the principles of clinical intervention in the caries process, and how to put this into dental practice Effective management of dental caries is critical for the success of the general dentist and the pediatric dentist. Dental caries is a bacterially based disease that progresses when acid produced by bacterial action on dietary fermentable carbohydrates travels into the tooth and dissolves the carbonated hydroxyapatite mineral. Pathological factors, including acidogenic bacteria, salivary dysfunction, and dietary carbohydrates are related to caries progression. Protective factors, which include antibacterials, salivary calcium, phosphate and proteins, salivary flow, and fluoride in saliva can balance, prevent or reverse dental caries. This presentation will summarize the science behind the caries balance concept, which is the key to caries management by risk assessment in clinical practice. Implementation of caries management by risk assessment into daily dental practice will be described The tooth as a toolbox: dental stem cells and their role in tissue homeostasis, pathology and regeneration Dental Stem Cells Thimios Mitsiadis (Switzerland) 12 Time: Room: Valparaiso 2 Language: English, Spanish Chairperson: Gloria Guzman

15 Learning objectives After the presentation participants will be able to: Describe recent knowledge on tooth development and regeneration, especially in molecular and cellular events Identify the role of Notch signalling in these events Recognise the role and applications of dental stem cells for tissue or entire tooth regeneration Discuss the activation of stem cell niches in teeth after injury and the clonogenic potential of dental cells Wednesday 14 September Dental stem cells play a critical role in tooth homeostasis and repair. Notch signaling controls cell fate specification outcomes. The close association of mesenchymal cells and neo-vessels in dental diseases and their relation to Notch signaling is important in the regulation of stem cells to form odontoblasts or periodontal ligament cells. In the epithelium, ameloblast progenitors express Notch molecules and exhibit a clonal potential. Thus Notch signaling plays a role in the maintenance and determination of dental stem cell fates. Aesthetic guidelines for the restoration of anterior teeth Antonio Bello Roch (Mexico) Time: Room: Casa del Diezmo 1 & 2 Language: English, Spanish Chairperson: Jose Martinez Learning objectives After the presentation participants will be able to: Have a better understanding of evidence based guidelines when restoring anterior teeth Detail ready-to-use information that can be transferred to a clinician s restorative practice Dentists tend to think of the current interest in the aesthetic components of Prosthodontics as being modern trend in Dentistry. However, these concepts have been around for several decades. Articles from the 1950 s describe the concept on Dentogenics and Dynesthetics as they related to complete denture Prosthodontics, and based their information on earlier knowledge by a German dentist, Wilhelm Zach. Some of these aspects were applied directly into the field of Fixed Prosthodontics, and some guidelines were described by more recent research. It is the purpose of this lecture to present and analyse the various factors in Prosthodontics from an evidence based perspective, to provide the dentist with ready to use information in their practice. 13

16 Wednesday 14 September Oral and maxillofacial radiology An update of new techniques (including Cone Beam CT) and review of the basic principles of interpretation Juan Yepes (United States of America) Time: Room: Palacio Iturbide 1 & 2 Language: English, Spanish Chairperson: Cecilia Lara Learning objectives After the presentation participants will be able to: Describe and evaluate the different technologies currently available for 3D imaging in dentistry Select the appropriate imaging parameters to assist in different diagnostic and treatment tasks The present future replaces 2D shadows with 3D (and even 4D) precision. The radiograph is no longer restricted to static interpretation of disease processes. Modern images provide simulations and facilitate image-guided treatment. Dentists need no longer be free handed sculptors of human ivory, but rather architects of biologic and esthetic harmony Topics covered by this course are: Enabling technologies Limiting parameters Selection criteria Computer-aided diagnosis Communicating dental data files Image reading support services Laser-generated models and surgical stents Image-guided treatment (e.g. implantology) Global trends in patient safety and infection control Organisation for Safety and Asepsis Procedures symposium - OSAP Time: Room: Palacio Iturbide 3 Language: English, Spanish Chairperson: Sandra Alcantar WHO Patient Safety Curriculum: The impact on dental education globally A. Enrique Acosta Gio (Mexico) 14

17 Learning objectives After the presentation participants will be able to: Identify adverse events in dentistry and strategies to reduce the risk for accidental harm to dental patients Integrate a framework to enable teamwork, improve quality and manage risks List the elements of the plan to disseminate the curricular guide throughout the global dental educational community In 2009 the World Health Organization (WHO) developed a Patient Safety Curriculum Guide for Medical Students that encourages and facilitates the teaching of patient safety topics to medical students. Recently, the World Health Professions Alliance developed a multiprofessional curricular guide to widen the scope of the Curriculum Guide to include all health professionals including dentistry. This segment of the program will review the curriculum guidelines and address the fundamental skills for a culture of patient safety including team work, quality improvement and risk management. This topic also will discuss the impact of the patient safety curriculum guide on dental education globally. Wednesday 14 September Coordinating and calibrating infection control standards in Latin America Carmen Carrington-Betts (Panama) Learning objectives After the presentation participants will be able to: List several examples of how countries can raise the level of infection control and safety through policy statements List elements of a plan to disseminate a Biosafety standard throughout the regional professional and educational communities Panama s national standards on Biosafety were adopted by Guatemala, El Salvador, Honduras, Nicaragua and Costa Rica at the January 2010 meeting of Federación Odontológica de América Central y Panamá (FOCAP). This regional collaboration serves as an example of how countries can pool their resources to promote and support a single standard and raise the bar on infection control. This course will discuss the various standards among the Latin American countries and the importance of consensus standards. Speaker: Dr., AOP s Delegate ( ). Founding Member of Panamá s National Biosafety Committee. Business continuity planning for dental organizations and institutions Eve Cuny (United States of America) 15

18 Wednesday 14 September Learning objectives After the presentation participants will be able to: Identify key elements of a business continuity plan Determine resources available to assist in planning for disaster recovery Begin developing a framework for their organization s business continuity plan The H1N1 pandemic of served as an important exercise in preparing for mass disaster for many dental organizations and institutions. Although most countries felt the impact of this pandemic, the consequences were not as devastating as they could have been had the virus produced more severe illness. Natural disasters such as we have experienced in recent years with severe hurricanes and devastating earthquakes remind us that help cannot always reach locations as quickly as everyone would like. Dental organizations can prepare to protect their organization or institution and also play a role in response. This requires carefully evaluation of existing resources, identification of critical operations and a roadmap to response if the unimaginable happens. This course will discuss the elements of business continuity planning in the context of dental organizations and institutions such as dental schools, large dental clinics and public health clinics. New vision in periodontology: Prevention or cure Biofilm impact in health and disease Agustin Zeron (Mexico) Time: Room: Casa Montejo 1&2 Language: English, Spanish Chairperson: Eduardo Azuara Learning objectives After the presentation participants should be able to: Understand the new concept of periodontal diseases as primarily an inflammatory disease initiated by an infectious biofilm Learn how the risk is conferred to individual patients and how the risk is assessed and managed Recognize the two way relationship between oral health and overall health Periodontology is a medical science with scientific evidence, and treatment of sequelae per se has not been shown to cure periodontal disease. Periodontal diseases are infectious diseases which involves 16

19 many inflammatory mediators. Genomic susceptibility needs to be considered to manage the risk profile. Maintaining oral health is to maintain the health of the whole organism. The care of oral hygiene and supportive periodontal therapy has two goals: To motivate the patient and control the pathogenic biofilm. This is Strategic Prevention. Odontopediatría: nuevos horizontes en el tratamiento Francisco Ramos-Gómez (EE.UU.) Wednesday 14 September Time: Room: Casa del Diezmo 3 Language: Spanish * Chairperson: Elena Pineda * This session will not be interpreted.

20 Wednesday 14 September Calidad y Seguridad en la Atención Odontológica Jorge Triana Estrada (Mexico) Time: Room: Casa del Diezmo 4 Language: Spanish * Chairperson: Graciela Santoyo * This session will not be interpreted. Presentation language: Spanish Objetivos de aprendizaje Diseñar y promover medidas de mejora para gestionar los riesgos, desarrollando además indicadores para la evaluación de calidad asistencial mínima requerida Difundir los esquemas diseñados en materia de seguridad del paciente en nuestro país Estandarizar los procedimientos de seguridad del paciente en todos los centros de atención buco dental Implementar esquemas para la prevención de eventos adversos, para garantizar la seguridad del paciente en los centros de atención buco dental, pública y privada Resumen La odontología ha sido calificada por expertos juristas como una profesión de riesgos diarios, especialmente desde el punto de vista jurídico-sanitario. La inobservancia de principios de seguridad ha mermado la calidad de los servicios de salud buco dental, público y privado. Del planteamiento anterior se establece la necesidad de diseñar programas que incluyan entre sus aspectos más relevantes el diseño de esquemas de gestión de riesgos, para proporcionar seguridad al paciente, brindar atención de calidad y crear un ambiente de seguridad y tranquilidad profesional.

21 Mid-day Sessions Practical caries management by risk assessment John Featherstone (United States of America) Elmar Reich (Germany) Time: Room: Valparaiso 3 Language: English, Spanish Chairperson: Maria de Jesus Alonso Wednesday 14 September John D.B. Featherstone Learning Objectives At the end of this session participants will be able to: To learn a step wise approach to successful caries risk assessment in practice To understand the principles of clinical intervention in the caries process, and how to put this into dental practice. Effective management of dental caries is critical for the success of the general dentist and the pediatric dentist. The science behind caries risk assessment has been presented by Professor Featherstone in the previous session This presentation will summarize how to implement caries management by risk assessment into daily clinical practice. Examples will be given illustrating therapeutic approaches that are taken dependent upon the assessed level of risk for new caries in the future. Elmar Reich Learning Objectives At the end of this session participants will be able to: Recognise the significance of the move to collaborative practice in terms of disease prevention and health promotion and the role that must be played by the dentists and their team in multi-professional caries management Be able to apply the WHPA risk assessment scorecard in their daily practice As dentists, we have to deal with an ageing population, who want to maintain their teeth. We are seeing increasingly numbers of patients who require complex health management, which requires multiprofessional collaboration particularly in terms of risk assessment. The rise in the major chronic diseases, cancer, diabetes, respiratory diseases and cardio-vascular disease, governments are focusing on preventive and health promotion, which will require dentists to use risk assessment as a routine part of daily clinical practice. 19

22 Wednesday 14 September World Health Professions Alliance (WHPA) represents dentists, doctors, nurses, pharmacists, physiotherapists and midwives, collectively over 23 million health workers worldwide. FDI has been leading the development of a WHPA risk assessment/ health improvement scorecard. This presentation will follow on from Prof Featherstone s presenting the WHPA scorecard, how it relates to caries management and what this means in terms of dentists clinical practice in the future. Making decisions about providing crown and bridgework The extensively damaged tooth: When does it need a crown? Richard Ibbetson (United Kingdom) Time: Room: Valparaiso 2 Language: English, Spanish Chairperson: Gloria Guzman Learning objectives After the presentation participants will be able to: Appreciate the advantages and limitations of direct restorations Understand when indirect restorations are indicated Know the different types of indirect restorations and the indications for their use Define the skills required for tooth preparation for indirect restorations The amount and location of remaining tooth tissue are significant factors in the longevity of teeth and restorations. Intra-coronal restorations replace missing tooth structure but they have limited ability to protect the remaining tooth structure. Additionally as their size increases, creating appropriate form becomes more difficult. Crowns are frequently used to restore extensively damaged teeth but the tooth preparation removes further tooth tissue. The presentation will discuss the benefits and limitations of direct and indirect restorations. Dealing with difficult patients Meet the Fokkers (and learn to love them) Kevin Lewis (United Kingdom) 20 Time: Room: Casa del Diezmo 1 & 2 Language: English, Spanish Chairperson: Jose Martinez

23 Learning objectives Participants will be helped to recognize several types of difficult patients, and to understand what approach is likely to make them less (or more) difficult. After the session they will be able to: Recognise the clues from a patient s voice and body language Know how to adapt their own communication technique for each patient When faced with a complaint, clinicians will often observe that the patient involved was very difficult to treat or manage in some way. Some challenging patients are instantly recognisable, but others can take us by surprise if we don t know how to handle them. In addition to clinical skills we also need soft people skills, and a consistently sound approach to consent and record keeping, in order to deal effectively with challenging patients of all kinds. This presentation uses videoclips to illustrate and explain what problems they create and why, and provides practical suggestions for dealing with them. Wednesday 14 September New dental materials for the paediatric dentist Luis Karakowsky (Mexico) Time: Room: Palacio Iturbide 1 & 2 Language: English, Spanish Chairperson: Cecilia Lara Learning objectives After the presentation participants will be able to: Understand that restorative rules in operative dentistry have changed Discuss the principles and concepts of minimally invasive dentistry with respect to paediatric dentistry Identify and describe new diagnostic tools that detect early enamel carious lesions, recognition of risk factors, biomimetic materials that remineralize dental tissue, intelligent dental restorative materials, therapeutic pit and fissure sealants In the past we considered caries to be a lesion not a disease. Restorative materials and strict retentive rules in operative dentistry needed the irreversible destruction of sound dental tissue. In recent years a new generation of dental materials and the change in paradigms on the way we conceive the dental caries (knowledge, diagnosis and treatment) have made possible the development of a more conservative dentistry this is specially important for the paediatric patient. 21
