Speaker Biography

Dr. Alan M. Atlas received his DMD degree in 1986 from the University of Pennsylvania School of Dental Medicine and served there as acting Co-Chairman of the Department of Preventive and Restorative Sciences. Currently, Dr. Atlas is Clinical Associate Professor, Co-Director of Restorative Dentistry Clinics, Director of Implant Dentistry and a Primary Care Unit Group Leader in the Department of Preventive and Restorative Sciences. In addition, he is actively involved in the development and integration of clinical research studies for implants, CAD-CAM ceramics and dental materials at Penn.

He holds membership in the Academy of Osseointegration, Omicron Kappa Upsilon National Dental Honor Society and the International Association for Dental Research. He is a 2006 recipient of the Penn Dental Medicine Alumni Award of Merit. Presently, Dr. Atlas is an internationally recognized lecturer focused on applying scientific based protocols to clinical dentistry. He lectures extensively and publishes on various topics in dentistry including esthetic and implant restorations and current concepts in adhesion dentistry. He maintains a private practice dedicated to Esthetic and Comprehensive Restorative Dentistry located in Philadelphia, PA.

"Enhancing the Esthetics and Function of Composite and Ceramic Restorations: Treatment Planning the Materials, Techniques And Procedures For Optimal Clinical Success and Longevity"

There are key fundamental concepts that will determine the long term favorable outcome of esthetic restorations. This course will demonstrate, with an optional hands-on practicum, step by step concise restorative treatment planning guidelines that fulfill today’s esthetic demands and integrates current restorative materials and protocols. Procedures and techniques for esthetic and functional success with adhesives, composites and ceramic materials will be reviewed based on the most current scientific evidence.

Mastering Adhesion Dentistry and the Direct Posterior Esthetic Restoration Lecture – Morning

• Tooth preparation, choice of materials, placement and curing methods for direct posterior composite restorations
• Update and scientific analysis of adhesive systems with indication of which systems to utilize for specific cavity preparations
• Precise and consistent contacts utilizing optimum matrix systems for excellent long term results
• Finishing and polishing materials and techniques Mastering the Indirect Anterior and Posterior Esthetic

Restoration Lecture – Afternoon

• Treatment planning anterior and posterior ceramic restorations for optimum outcomes based on scientific evidence
• Survival of restorations — composite vs. amalgam vs. ceramic vs. gold for inlays and onlays
• Comparison of all CAD-CAM technologies, all-ceramic (stacked and pressed) and Zirconium systems
• Step-by-step preparation techniques for all ceramic crowns, inlays and onlays
• Predictable impression techniques utilizing simplified retraction and hemostasis
• Simplified provisionalization for indirect restorations
• Laboratory considerations for all ceramic inlay, onlay and crowns
• Cementation: materials, adhesives and techniques for each substrate
• Treatment planning conservative veneer preparation – patient selection

Hands-on Workshop Option: Direct Posterior Composite Restorations

The hands-on workshop will provide techniques for successful direct posterior Class I and Class II composite resins and Class V restorations, utilizing scientific based data.
• Restoration of direct posterior composites with several techniques and materials utilized and compared
• How to get precise and consistent contacts and excellent long term results
• Finishing and polishing techniques page

"Enhancing the Esthetics and Function of Teeth: Treatment Planning the Materials, Techniques and Procedures for Indirect Esthetic Restorations"

(full or half day lecture; hands-on workshop available)

There are key fundamental concepts that will determine the success of anterior and posterior indirect esthetic restorations. This course will demonstrate, with an optional hands-on practicum, step by step concise restorative treatment planning guidelines that fulfill today’s esthetic demands and integrates current restorative materials and protocols. Procedures and techniques for esthetic and functional success with ceramic materials will be reviewed based on the most current scientific evidence.

• Proper treatment planning of anterior and posterior ceramic restorations, conservative veneers
• Survival of restorations – composite vs. amalgam vs. ceramic vs. gold for inlays and onlays
• Step-by-step preparation techniques for all ceramic crowns, inlays and onlays
• Predictable impression techniques and simplified provisionalization for indirect restorations
• Comparison of all CAD-CAM technologies, all-ceramic, and Zirconium systems with specific indication for each
• Laboratory considerations for all ceramic inlay, onlay and crowns
• Cementation: materials, adhesives and techniques for each substrate – Metal, Ceramic, Aluminous Oxide and Zirconium

Afternoon Hands-on Workshop

(OPTIONAL 2-3 HOUR WORKSHOP)
Each participant will prepare, impress, temporize and cement indirect restorations.

• Step-by-step protocols for preparation of all ceramic anterior and posterior restorations utilizing specific diamonds for precise margins
• Cordless retraction methods
• Simplified impression techniques
• Provisionalization – fabricate precise temporary crowns in 5 minutes
• Cementation – selection and utilization of proper cements for each indication page
