Growth Factor, Technology in Oral Surgery Topics of Sullivan CDE Lecture
No other CDE lecture in the region offers two divergent topics with one important goal: educate dental professionals to improve oral surgery outcomes.
The 2009 John E. Sullivan, D.D.S. Endowed Lecture: Growth Factor Use in Surgical Techniques and Technology-Driven Treatment in Dental Implant Techniques, April 29, Wood Auditorium, UT Medical Center, will closely examine options for oral surgery, including the use of rhBMP-2 (recombinant human bone morphogenetic protein-2) growth factor with surgical techniques and the use of technology, such as cone beam CT (CBCT) and CAD/CAM in dental implant techniques. Oral and maxillofacial surgeons, prosthodontists and dentists will benefit from this lecture.
Expert speakers include Alan S. Herford, DDS, MD, Chair and Program Director, Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery, Loma Linda University, and Stanley E. Rye, DDS, Atlanta prosthodontist.
This CDE lecture will offer up to four hours credit through Academy of General Dentistry, and CEUs also are available. AGD credit is accepted by the Tennessee Board of Dentistry for re-licensure credit. Participants licensed outside of Tennessee should check with their licensing board.
