8:30-11:30 Ellsperman Lecture - Dr. Bill Robbins - "Global Diagnosis and Digital Smile Design: A New Synergy"
Digital smile design (DSD) is an innovative concept which allows the dentist to conceptually design the positions of the teeth and gingiva using a computer simulation. It is not only useful for the restorative dentist but also aids in communication with the specialists and laboratory technicians that will be involved in the treatment. However, the greatest advantage of the DSD simulation is in the communication with the patient. Using a printed cast of the simulation, a stint is constructed that is used for the motivational mockup in the patient’s mouth. Once the projected final outcome is viewed and accepted by the patient, the details of the treatment plan can be finalized. This is where the Global Diagnosis concepts are implemented to determine the etiology of the malpositioned teeth and gingiva and to then create a sequenced treatment plan. It is the purpose of this course to demonstrate the unique synergy between these two concepts. (3 hours of CE)
Objectives: Upon completion of the lecture the participant will:
- Understand the mechanics of the DSD concept
- Understand how to implement the DSD concept
- Understand the Global Diagnosis system
- Understand the unique synergy between the two concepts

1:30 Ethics lecture - Dr. Dan Henry - "Outcome Assessment and Its Ethical Application"
The lecture will be a story about how I have developed, over a 40-year practice, a decision-making process, based on outcomes assessments of restorative decisions. I refer to this thought process as the restorative cycle for operative dentistry. I hope to show how the process can lead to ethical decisions about how to treat your patients. In addition, I hope to demonstrate that ethics and ethical treatment of anyone is a personal decision each must make daily. The decision belongs to the individual and often there are several different choices that can be made. I hope to demonstrate why the gold foil restorative technique is an ethical option that will benefit your patients. In short, to quote Winston Churchill, “however beautiful the strategy is, you should occasionally look at the results.” (1 hour CE)
- What are ethics and what does ethical mean?
- What can influence the decision process ethical or not?
- Identify a philosophy of dental practice based on outcomes assessment.
- How does the restorative cycle influence ethical choices?

9-9:55 Lecture – Dr. Lauren Yura - "Introduction to the CRET (Center for Research and Education in Technology)"
Dental students are taken in as first years knowing close to nothing about oral medicine and dentistry. Then over four years, they are lead and transformed into being proficient and competent practitioners. Though given an expansive and comprehensive skill set during their academic years, it was very difficult in an academic setting to expose students to the vast array of materials and technology due to rapidly changing inventory and cost of technology and equipment. This left students graduating with limited knowledge of innovative technology, what vast materials were available beyond the walls of their institution, and the expansive array of equipment on the market and what companies manufacture them. This all changed in 2004 when Dr. Edward Rossomando along with dental industry leaders founded CRET – Center for Research and Education in Technology. CRET’s mission was to create a conglomerate of dental companies that would pull together to create a unique learning environment for our future dental clinicians. “To achieve this goal. CRET developed a Technology Educational Program (TEP) to transfer knowledge and competency in 21st century to dental students and faculty.” West Virginia University was awarded a CRET center in 2016 and opened the “Dr. W. Robert Biddington Center for Dental Innovation” October 2017. West Virginia has one of the largest oral health disparities in the country so the introduction of this Innovation Center has been life changing for not only our students and faculty but for our patients and our State. (1 hour CE)
- Impact of CRET on WVU School of Dentistry’s students, faculty, staff, and patients
- Background of the CRET organization and how its model is changing dental education
- What makes the Dr. W. Robert Biddington Center for Dental Innovation at West Virginia University distinctive and unique
10-10:55 Lecture - Dr. Kerri Simpson - "Update in Periodontics"
This lecture will be a two-part presentation. The first portion will be an update on the new periodontal and peri-implant diseases and conditions, and the second portion will be a case series on a new soft tissue grafting technique. Updated on the new classification: In 2017, the American Academy of Periodontology and the European Federation of Periodontology held a World Workshop on the classification of periodontal and peri-implant diseases and conditions. The result of the gathering is a redesigned disease classification framework that guides comprehensive treatment planning and allows for a personalized approach to patient care. Some of the highlights of the updated classification include a multi-dimensional staging and grading system for periodontitis classification, a recategorization of various forms of periodontitis, and the inaugural classification for peri-implant diseases and conditions.
Case series: The overall prevalence of gingival recession in the adult population has been reported to be higher than 60%, with mandibular central and lateral incisions being the most frequently affected teeth. Literature has shown that tooth location affects the chance to achieve complete root coverage following coronally advanced flap procedure considerably. In particular, it has been reported that the mean root coverage for the mandibular incisors was less than that for the other tooth types. The surgical challenge for mucogingival procedures in this area is often related to the presence of limited vestibular depth, thin tissues and papillae, prominent roots and bony dehiscence, frenum and muscular attachments. We will discuss a novel surgical technique for labial root coverage on mandibular incisors that may help overcome these anatomical complications and improve the clinical outcome. (1 hour CE)
- To become familiar with the new classification of periodontal and peri-implant diseases and conditions
- To be able to apply the new classification to your patient population
- To learn a novel surgical technique that can help with mandibular anterior recession
11-11:55 Lecture - Dr. Bruce Small - "Cast Gold and Gold Foil – Perfect together"
During this fast paced interactive lecture Dr. Small will share various reasons why a working knowledge of using gold foil is an excellent adjunct to placing cast gold. Become a more refined operator and learn how using gold foil can actually help market and grow your practice. (1 hour CE)
- You will understand a few applications where gold foil can be used with cast gold
- You will understand the basics of using gold foil
- You will know when gold foil is indicated rather than a cast restoration
- You will know where to acquire the instruments and materials needed to do a gold foil
