Dr. Charles Maupin grew up in Artesia, New Mexico. He graduated with a B.S. in Biology from Lubbock Christian University. Dr. Maupin received his DDS degree from Baylor College of Dentistry. Following graduation from Baylor College of Dentistry, Dr. Maupin attended the University of California, Los Angeles, where he served as Chief Resident and received his endodontic specialty certificate. Dr. Maupin continues to be involved at UCLA where he is a part-time faculty member. Dr. Maupin is a Diplomate of the American Board of Endodontics. He is a founding member of the International Academy of Endodontics. He maintains a private practice in endodontics and implants in Lubbock, Texas. Dr. Maupin is the developer of Dynamically Guided Endodontics. He presents lectures and teaches hands on courses on this topic and its use in the field of endodontics.
Enhancing Decision Making and Treatment with the aid of 3D Technology
Are you saving teeth you shouldn’t or removing teeth that should be saved? Dr. Maupin will begin with the rationale for why endodontists should be involved in treatment planning and decision making, whether they place implants or not. With proper understanding, an endodontist can provide a valuable, unbiased opinion to the referring doctor. The endodontic and implant literature show both therapies afford equally high success rates. Therefore, other determinants must be considered when making the important decision to retain a tooth or replace it with a dental implant. Dr. Maupin will detail an endodontic implant algorithm, which can be used in the decision making process and also to communicate with the patient and referring doctor. Once the decision has been made, Dr. Maupin will show how he executes some treatment plans. Dr. Maupin will conclude the lecture discussing his development of dynamically guided endodontics and the important role it can play in the treatment of calcified canals.
1. Identify the key elements driving the recommendation to save or remove a tooth
2. Discuss why endodontists should become knowledgeable in implant dentistry
3. Understand the difference between static guides and dynamic navigation
4. Understand the technology involved in dynamic navigation
Dr. Pushpak Narayana earned his B.D.S. from the Rajiv Gandhi University of Health Sciences at Bangalore, India in 2000. Prior to his formal endodontics training Dr. Narayana practiced general dentistry for 7 years and went on to participate in a Fellowship in Endodontics at the University of Florida. Dr. Narayana completed his endodontic training from the University of Medicine and Dentistry of New Jersey (now Rutgers School of Dental Medicine) receiving a M.D.S. and a Certificate in Endodontics. He is a Diplomate of the American Board of Endodontics. He serves on the faculty of Rutgers School of Dental Medicine as an adjunct associate professor in the department of Endodontics where he teaches postgraduate residents. Dr. Narayana is an active member of the American Association of Endodontics and a Fellow of the International Academy of Endodontics. Dr. Narayan is a full-time endodontic clinician in Lady Lake, Florida. He currently serves as the President of Lake County Dental Association. He often takes part in lectures at various national and international meetings and has articles published in journals including Journal of Endodontics and endodontic textbooks.
Root amputation: What is possible?
Traditionally root amputation procedures were used to salvage or prolong the life of the complex restoration which otherwise needs to be sacrificed. Often times the procedure is employed as an afterthought. Challenging clinical scenarios and past, dated experiences often times shape and limit the practitioner’s understanding of what is attainable with root amputations. Actual patient centered outcomes of these procedures continue to remain unanswered. This case based presentation will not only analyze the cases treated in the presenter’s private practice setting but also review the clinical management.
1. Review the planning process and precise intervention
2. Review of cases treated in the presenter’s private practice setting
3. Understand what is possible with root amputation procedures when planned in advance
Dr. Rahim Karmali is a clinical endodontist who strives to offer world-class care to his patients. His conservative approach to diagnosing and treating oral pain has earned him recognition amongst leaders in
the field. Dr. Karmali was raised in Seattle. He attended the University of Washington where he earned a Bachelor of Science degree and then a Doctor of Dental Surgery. Upon graduation, he served honorably with the United States Navy as a Dental Officer. He was stationed around the globe with the Navy and Marines. After completing his service, he returned to the Long Beach Veterans Administration Medical Center to obtain a certificate in Endodontics.
He currently serves as the President of the International Academy of Endodontics. He is the founder and Chairman of the Denver Academy of Integrative Dentistry. Dr. Karmali is a Diplomate of the American Board of Endodontics and a member of the American Academy of Implant Dentistry. He is a contributing author in “Best Practices in Endodontics”. Dr. Karmali shares his knowledge and experience through thought provoking presentations. His presentations are clinically based and challenge the norms of conventional endodontic approaches. He presents nationally at dental meetings and universities.
Dr. Karmali’s passion for professional and personal growth is focused towards helping his patients maintain their oral health for a lifetime. His patient’s appreciate his conservative and innovative approach to managing pain, which makes him a much sought after clinician in the greater metropolitan Denver area. His practice is focused on understanding before treating. It is based on trying conservative approaches before attempting aggressive ones. He has gained the reputation of predictably saving teeth that would otherwise require extraction and replacement.
Dr. Michael Trudeau received a B.A. in Molecular Biology and a Masters in Business Administration from Webster University. He graduated from the University of the Pacific School of Dentistry as a Doctor of
Dental Surgery with OKU honors. He obtained his certificate in Advanced Education in General Dentistry while serving in the United States Navy. After practicing as a general dentist in South Carolina, he returned as a pot-graduate student to earn a certificate in endodontics at the Albert Einstein Hospital IB Bender Division of Endodontic in Philadelphia, PA. He maintains a private practice limited to endodontics in Suffolk, VA. Dr. Trudeau has lectured on numerous topics in endodontics including the management of traumatized teeth and restoratively driven endodontics. Specifically, he has targeted restoratively driven treatment planning; microscope enhanced access design, and the restoration of endodontically treated teeth.
He is a specialist member of the ADA, the Suffolk Dental Society, the Tidewater Dental Society, and a founding member of the International Academy of Endodontics. He lives in southern Virginia with his wife and two young daughters.
Drs. Trudeau & Karmali will provide you with a joint presentation.
Restoratively Driven Endodontics
The traditional focus of endodontic treatment has been the management of microbial disease. Once the disease is “cured”, we tend to abdicate further responsibility. “We did our part”. This short-term perspective has been to our detriment as a specialty, not to mention to our patients’ disadvantage. Curing disease is only a part of the predictability story. How the tooth is restored is just as significant to both short-term and long-term outcomes. With microscope and CBCT technologies, endodontists are uniquely equipped to facilitate a seamless restorative transition back to the restorative dentist. Making this transition effectively results in better outcomes for you, the restorative dentist and ultimately, the patients we care for. Restorative knowledge and skill also positions you as a leader in your respective dental communities.
1. To describe the rationale for restoratively driven endodontics.
2. To leverage the microscope and CBCT for better decision making and execution of rehabilitating compromised teeth.
3. To explore modern materials and detailed methods in various clinical scenarios.
4. Understand the concepts of axial dentin as it relates to endodontically treated teeth and its link to the ferrule preparation.
