PART I

Failures and Challenges

Introduction:

One of the realities of clinical practice is that sometimes things do not go as planned. This curriculum helps clinicians learn how to recover when this happens but also addresses specific cases where risk factors can be mitigated. These modules cover topics such as continued facial growth, lack of restorative space for implant restorations, immediate implants, dealing with infections and more. This pathway will spark great conversations about issues that can derail optimal outcomes.
By using a combination of Study Club modules and Spear Online, clinicians are encouraged to stretch out of their comfort zone and begin to treatment plan and execute more complex cases. Learning how others have been successful, combined with support from the club leader and other members, leads to higher levels of confidence and competence.

PART II

Challenging Single Tooth Cases – Implementation Into Everyday Practice

Introduction:
Sometimes a single tooth case can be as complex as a large case. This curriculum will focus on a number of scenarios in which clinicians can struggle to get an ideal result. You’ll cover topics that range from when to remove VS keep a tooth, dealing with a single central, options for holding space in younger patients, to dealing with a dark tooth in the anterior. These modules will help the group use the same comprehensive treatment planning methodology for larger cases to ensure success in these single tooth cases.

PART III

Wear

Introduction:

Wear patients present some of the most challenging treatment considerations dentists face. Fear of the severe wear case failing can cause dentists to hesitate in treatment, doubt the appropriate next step, and often just keep “watching” cases that could be treated. This curriculum will help doctors to go through a number of real-life scenarios helping doctors to better identify etiology, and create restorative plans that will last even in the most complex patients.

PART IV

Managing Malocclusion

Introduction:

When and how your patient’s teeth meet each other can define or destroy your success. This pathway helps build on your fundamental understanding about how to create that success and avoid destruction. In this curriculum, you will explore the role of joints in occlusal schemes and when you will need additional information such as MRIs to successfully execute a case. Then you’ll spend time examining complex malocclusion such as anterior open bites, end to end and deep overbites.

Essential Lectures in Clinical Dentistry Series

PART I – The Foundational Curriculum

Introduction:

The Foundational Curriculum provides the clinician with an interdisciplinary perspective into difficult cases. It will permit you to implement a variety of tools immediately into practice. The curriculum will focus on identifying the full range of problem list and etiologies affecting each patients’ case in its unique way with the help of various specialists.

This exercise of treatment planning help improve clinicians’ diagnostic skills, develop a common philosophy, and render treatments based on the full context of diagnosed etiologies, that are effective, predictable and durable.

Beginning with seemingly-complex cases involving poorly executed treatments, each lecture will walk through the tenets of this systematic treatment planning methodology and demonstrate how this methodology should be applied to every case in order to demystify complex cases.

The philosophy is based on an interdisciplinary approach and GPs are encouraged to work hand-in-hand with their specialists.

While each lecture stands alone, it will also build on the philosophy underlying previous lectures, assisting clinicians in evaluating and planning everything from a single endodontic case or missing central incisor to complex wear cases.

PART II – Implementation into Everyday Practice

Introduction:
This curriculum picks up where Foundational Curriculum left off. With a common methodology for approaching complex cases, the second portion, Implementation into Everyday Practice module applies Contextual Treatment Planning to cases seen every day.

This pathway begins with one of the biggest challenges of implementation: the sequencing and phasing of increasingly complex cases.

Seminars then move on to specific issues clinicians commonly deal with when moving beyond simple or single-tooth cases.

We encourage interested individuals to participate in seminars from the Advanced Dentistry Lecture Series pathway, which involves particular cases presented by other clinicians who have implemented this Contextual Treatment Planning philosophy to grow their own practices.

By using a combination of Foundational Seminars and Advanced Dentistry Lecture Series, clinicians are encouraged to expand beyond of their comfort zones and begin to treatment plan and execute more complex cases. By learning how others have been successful, combined with support of the specialists at EOI-NYC and other seminar participants, practitioners will achieve higher levels of confidence and competence.
