  • 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

  • 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

  • Violence rates in healthcare have doubled since 2011, and nearly three-quarters of all violence-related nonfatal workplace injuries and illnesses in 2018 were incurred by healthcare workers. Workplace violence poses a significant threat to the health, safety and well-being of healthcare workers and has negative implications for their productivity, retention and the quality of care they provide to patients. As U.S. healthcare workers in the private sector are five times more likely to experience nonfatal violence-related injury compared to workers in all other private industries combined, it is imperative that OMSs and practice staff understand the types and sources of workplace violence. Attendees of this 90-minute webinar will learn strategies and techniques for mitigating this risk to their employees and their patients. Code: WPM231018R

  • 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.

  • The management of temporomandibular joint pain and limited function may involve non-surgical treatment, arthrocentesis, arthroscopy, arthroplasty and total joint replacement. There is no consensus on an appropriate algorithm to follow to ensure good patient outcomes while also reducing the number of surgical procedures needed. Despite the lack of a consensus, there is sufficient evidence to provide relatively robust recommendations that can assist clinicians in developing patient-centric algorithms that can greatly improve the diagnosis and treatment of patients with internal derangement and associated pain and limited function.

  • 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).

  • The provision of dentoalveolar surgical procedures are an integral part of the OMS practice. This program will review topics that the OMS can incorporate into their practice and provide clinical and evidence-based outcomes for the procedures. Procedures to be reviewed include second molar surgical uprighting, coronectomy and management of large radiolucent lesions of the jaws. Code: ODAM22SS25

  • 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

  • Patients often present with dental failure of teeth and restorations, or failure of previously placed implants. The approach demonstrated in this presentation focuses on a standard set of diagnostic material, followed by the development of a treatment plan that will include removal of disease, grafting hard and soft tissue, development of the final restorative plan and placement of implants in locations prescribed by the final plan. This is done using digital information, virtual planning and navigation methods to optimize accuracy and precision. The first surgery is often aimed at eliminating disease and includes removal of teeth or implants with debridement and, as necessary, hard- and soft-tissue grafting. Often these patients require additional grafting to obtain satisfactory tissue volume and quality. Implants are placed navigated in a position prescribed by a virtual tooth setup. Multiple cases will be presented. Code: ODAM22SS24
