Conference Speakers

Dr. Jay Biber

A prolific inventor, passionate researcher, and dedicated educator of all things dental, GV Black is undoubtedly the most recognizable name in dentistry. Called the Father of Modern Operative Dentistry, his ideas and teachings still continue to influence how dentistry is practiced today – but should they?
Using clinical cases and relevant research, this lecture will explore the tension between the teachings of GV Black and contrary ideas in dentistry and how this tension impacts our diagnostic and surgical approaches today. Approaches that include, indirect pulp therapy, caries removal, management of incipient lesions, radiolucencies under existing restorations, behaviour management of the anxious patient, and more.

Dr. Tara Kennedy

Fluoride is a naturally occurring element – probably most well known as an ingredient in our everyday toothpaste and sometimes, controversially, in our water supply. This lecture will outline everyday sources of fluoride and Health Canada’s recommended daily intake, our body’s metabolism of fluoride, and its mechanism of action in bones and teeth. We will briefly discuss the application of fluoride in pediatric dentistry, from toothpaste and varnish to silver diamine fluoride and glass ionomer cements. We will also review what to do if a child ingests too much toothpaste and briefly touch on the ongoing controversy surrounding community water fluoridation.

Pediatric patients represent a population with unique perioperative considerations. Appropriate selection, assessment, and optimization of children in advance of dental procedures and oral surgery is essential to mitigate risk and facilitate favourable outcomes. Participants will learn how to assess pediatric patients, when to refer, and the consequences of suboptimal perioperative planning.
