Sullivan CDE Lecture Discusses Growth Factor and Technology Use
The 2009 John E. Sullivan, D.D.S. Endowed Lecture, April 29, offered two divergent topics with one important goal: educate dental professionals to improve oral surgery outcomes. The CDE lecture, Growth Factor Use in Surgical Techniques and Technology-Driven Treatment in Dental Implant Techniques, closely examined 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.
Expert speakers included Alan S. Herford, DDS, MD, Chair and Program Director, Department of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery, Loma Linda University, and Stanley E. Rye, DDS, Atlanta prosthodontist.
The activity was sponsored by the UT Graduate School of Medicine and Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery and was directed by Eric Carlson, DMD, MD.
