  • With continued popularity, increasing evidence in the literature, decreasing capital investment as well as integration into general residency training, 3D printing is becoming a well-accepted practice enhancement in both private and academic settings. The purpose of this session is to familiarize the audience with the various applications of 3D printing while showcasing the feasibility of point-of-care service in various clinical settings. The session aims to allow attendees to take away practice-building information from this engaging and interactive forum. Code: ODAM21SS06

  • Dental implants are a large part of any OMS practice and oftentimes are an “afterthought” as far as marketing and referral education. This course introduces systems to not only market but educate the referral base to grow the implant practice. Code: WPM191112R

  • Over the last 100 years, the specialty of oral and maxillofacial surgery has evolved into a diverse and exciting profession. Originally exodontists, oral and maxillofacial surgeons are now the experts in facial trauma, orthognathic surgery and reconstructive surgery. This symposium will highlight advances over the last century since the development of AAOMS. Code: ODAM18GS01

  • ABOMS Board member David Powers, DMD, MD, will discuss the ABOMS certification process and best practices for preparing for the examinations. The 2022 Qualifying Examination will be the first administration using the Board’s updated blueprint. This 60-minute webinar will explain the Board’s changes and how they may impact studying.

  • Oral and maxillofacial surgeons are well-equipped to provide care for a wide range of facial skin pathology. This 60-minute webinar discusses facial skin anatomy and prepares surgeons to formulate a well-organized differential diagnosis of dermatopathology. In addition, a review of biopsy, histopathology and imaging in the evaluation of skin lesions will be presented along with specific treatment strategies. The course will emphasize the oral and maxillofacial surgeon’s ability to care for head and neck skin lesions in the practice. Code: WCE191003R

  • Advanced imaging services have received significant attention over the past 10 years. Providers of such services as CT scans are required to have specific accreditation in order to receive reimbursement. While these requirements have been in place for some time, beginning Jan. 1, 2022, another set of requirements will be implemented. Appropriate Use Criteria (AUC) was created by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) to ensure beneficiaries are receiving the most appropriate imaging service for their clinical situation. This 90-minute webinar will discuss requirements of both advanced imaging and AUC, correct code and modifier reporting as well as impacts to reimbursement. Code: WCW211110R

  • The provision of dentoalveolar surgical procedures is the most common part of most oral and maxillofacial surgeons' practice. This session will focus on adjunctive procedures that can provide patients with improved outcomes and focus on aspects that can reduce complications. It also will include step-by-step clinical images and information so the OMS can integrate these procedures into practice. Topics to be reviewed include second molar uprighting procedures, marsupialization of large radiolucent lesions, coronectomy procedures (including indications, surgical procedure and long-term outcomes) as well as apical surgery (including current techniques and an algorithm for when to treat/when to extract). Code: ODAM21SS23

  • The intraoral vertical ramus osteotomy (IVRO) is a technically straightforward and useful technique with many applications, including management of horizontal mandibular excess, mandibular asymmetry and correction of minor mandibular deficiency. IVRO has a significant advantage over sagittal split osteotomy (SSO) from the standpoint of inferior alveolar nerve injury and risk of unfavorable split. IVRO also may be more forgiving than SSO in patients with TMJ disorders because of a condylotomy effect. IVRO has likely been criticized as a mainstream ramus osteotomy, as maxillomandibular fixation (MMF) is required with the traditional technique. Internal fixation can be readily applied to IVRO and predictably eliminate MMF. Surgical protocols for safe IVRO with internal fixation technique will be discussed in detail during this 60-minute webinar. Code: WCE220323R

  • This 60-minute webinar reviews actual cases and provide participants with specific legal, clinical and training tools to improve patient safety and preserve their practice. Code: WCE180322R

  • This presentation will update the practitioner with the perioperative management of asthmatic patients ages 12 and older. Anesthetic preoperative history and physical evaluation, including the use of pulmonary function tests, will be discussed. The intraoperative management of these patients will be presented along with a discussion of open airway management of bronchospasm. Code: ODAM19S601
