Are you Prepared for a Crisis Situation?


July 4th Week Cruise

7-Night Spain& Italy Cruise
Sunday, July 1 - Sunday, July 8, 2018



Presented by
Daniel G. Pompa, D.D.S.

12 CE Credits

  • Are you prepared for a crisis situation that can occur at any time?


    From handling a medical emergency to deciding on an alternative treatment plan when cases take an unexpected turn, attendees will benefit from this course. 


    An Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeon, Dr. Pompa shares new and proven clinical approaches while expanding problem solving and analytical skills. He delivers high energy, interactive, multimedia presentations. Attendees will gain insight into the decision making process by reviewing multiple case history scenarios.


    Dr. Pompa uses this approach across a wide spectrum of topics, based on 30 years of experience as an Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeon. Concepts and methods presented are supported by a thorough review of the most recent evidence-based dental and medical literature.


    With guidelines and principles that will broaden your situational awareness, both surgically and medically, participants understanding, confidence and patient outcomes can improve.



This Seminar consists of 3 main courses:
   - Medical Emergencies - How to Save a Life
(Including Your Own)
   - To Pull or Not to Pull - Periapical surgery vs. Implant Surgery
   - The Single Tooth Implant - Ultimate Esthetic Challenge



Actions and Algorithms for Medical Emergencies:
                                              How to Save a Life (Including Your Own)


A CRISIS SITUATION can—and likely will—occur at some time in your practice.


Many potential medical emergencies can be prevented. Gain a comprehensive command of the essential knowledge and skills needed to handle a life threatening medical crisis.


There are more medically compromised patients coming to our offices than ever before. Acquire “up to the minute” actions for dealing with a medical emergency while challenging preconceived or outdated ideas. Daniel Pompa, DDS - Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeon, ADA Consultant and Seminar Series Speaker - discusses the prevention, preparation, recognition and management of medical emergencies. Delivered in an interactive, high energy, multi-media presentation frequently described by attendees as “highly informative,” “engaging,” and “exceptional.” A step-by-step medical approach using basic physical diagnostic methods is reviewed, giving the attendee a clear understanding of these medical findings.


We will explore the “Conversational History” and how it will uncover medical issues not revealed by the standard health history form. Additionally, the participant will learn simple, non-invasive critical tests that can reduce overall risks. We clearly delineate indications for emergency drug use and proper dosages, as well as demonstrate how to assemble and maintain an ideal emergency drug kit. The newest techniques for drug administration will be shown for participants to hone their skills utilizing simulation models and real drugs. Dr. Pompa may incorporate live demonstrations to enhance the learning experience depending on the venue format.


Attendees will receive and review color-coded instructional cards depicting the most common life-threatening situations with algorithms providing an easy to follow action plan for both dentist and team members. We will also review the legal and moral obligations that are presented during a medical crisis.


Learning Objectives:

• Discover three simple chair-side, non-invasive tests to help avoid an emergency 

• Recognize the most frequent life threatening emergencies and know when and why they occur 

• Review a systematic approach to treat the most common life-threatening scenarios 

• Learn how to develop a plan for the office team when dealing with a crisis event 

• Determine when to administer the essential “Top 10” emergency drugs

• Understand legal and moral obligations presented by medical emergencies


To Pull or Not to Pull: Periapical Surgery vs. Implant Surgery


What alternative treatment options should be considered when a restorative and/or endodontic failure occurs?


Advancements in delivering periapical surgery have resulted in success rates that can be equivalent to implant replacement when certain guidelines are adhered to. Periapical surgery as an adjunct to endodontic treatment is a proven approach. With the introduction of new surgical techniques and a systematic method to the diagnosis and treatment of compromised teeth, the clinician should be able to more accurately determine the long term prognosis for these treatment options.


Evaluate treatment options with an evidence-based approach when a tooth is ailing or failing. This course will describe the indications and contraindications for performing or referring a patient for apical surgery. With a specific 7 step workup, including a correct history, radiographic and clinical evaluation, the decision to perform an apicoectomy will be weighed against further evaluation, a retreatment option, or extraction and replacement with an implant (immediate or delayed). As a result, a decision is more accurately made as to whether an implant or a fixed bridge (fixed partial prosthesis), a removable prosthesis (fixed or transitional temporary prosthesis), or other options would be the final treatment plan discussed with the patient.


Learning Objectives:

• Learn the radiographic technique to use when evaluating a tooth for a fracture 

• List the 7 step work-up, consisting of procedures and tests that should be used when performing or referring a patient for an apicoectomy 

• Understand the principles of guided tissue regeneration, and know the indications and contraindications for its use 

• Recognize how the location of a sinus tract can be a key critical diagnostic indicator for the final prognosis 

• Identify the signs to differentiate between an Endo/Perio vs. Perio/Endo lesions and understand the difference as it relates to the final prognosis


The Single Tooth Implant: The Ultimate Esthetic Challenge


The single tooth implant may be one of the most difficult challenges dentists face, with possible unforeseen outcomes.


The past few years have brought a paradigm shift, as guidelines for the surgical and restorative approach have changed dramatically. Fine tune your workup to create a result that is as close to a natural replacement as possible. We will focus on the latest advances incorporating evidence-based data. Participants will review a unique sequential treatment planning approach which can result in successful outcomes.

Emphasis will be given to the use of 3D treatment planning as it relates to the diagnostic workup and the use of computer guided surgery.* Multiple provisional options and/or interim Hawley prosthesis appliances will be reviewed to attain ideal esthetic results. Long term follow-up will be shown as it relates to these approaches.

The single tooth implant may be one of the most difficult challenges dentists face, with possible unforeseen outcomes.


Learning Objectives:
• Explore the use of platform switching and when and where to use it 

• Identify the “Top 10” rules for a successful esthetic outcome 

• Determine when to use immediate vs. delayed placement of implants 

• Understand the principles of CT guided treatment planning 

• Describe multiple provisional options for maximizing esthetic results
