Speaker Biography

Dr. Angelo Mariotti graduated from Grove City College with a B.S. in biology and education, West Virginia University with a Ph.D. in Pharmacology & Toxicology and a D.D.S and Virginia Commonwealth University with a certificate in periodontology. He is currently a professor at The Ohio State University where he is Chair of the Division of Periodontology.

Dr. Mariotti serves as the President of the Columbus Dental Society, as a member of the Council of Access to Care and Public Service of the Ohio Dental Association, as a consultant for the Council of Scientific Affairs for the America Dental Association, on the Advisory Board for the Journal of Periodontology and Clinical Advances in Periodontics, as an examiner for the American Board of Periodontology, and as an editor of Pharmacology and Therapeutics for Dentistry.

In addition to his teaching and research on endocrine effects in the periodontium, Dr. Mariotti maintains an active private practice in periodontology in The Ohio State Dental Faculty Practice Association, is a Fellow of the International College of Dentists and is listed as one of the Best Dentists in America.

COURSE DESCRIPTIONS


The Care and Feeding of Dental Implants

Course Description: Dental biofilms have been implicated in the development of periodontal diseases as well as in affecting long-term implant success and survival. In both destructive periodontal diseases and peri-implantitis, the induction of bacterial-induced inflammation either around the tooth or implant has been an important component associated with bone loss. Unlike microbial therapy for destructive periodontal diseases, predictable techniques to stop progression of bone loss around implants have not been elucidated. Therefore, proper, preventive maintenance of dental implants is essential for their long term survival. This seminar will review similarities and differences in maintenance of teeth and implants as well as contemporary methods for home care, instrumentation and antimicrobial use for dental implant maintenance.

Educational Objects:

1) Identify biological differences between implants and teeth.

2) Characterize the conditions and assess the impact of risk factors related to destructive periodontal diseases and peri-implantitis.

3) Evaluate various mechanical and pharmacologic methods and techniques for implant maintenance and patient home care.

Five Things Every Dentist Should Know About Periodontal Therapeutics and Medicine

Course Description: What do bisphosphonates, antibiotics, narcotics, growth factors, low-birth weight babies, and ObamaCare have in common? At first glance, there does not seem to be a shared commonality; however, these drugs, people and policies involve pressing issues that will affect dentists in 2012 and beyond.

It is not surprising that periodontology, more than any other dental specialty, has relied on therapeutic interventions to treat oral diseases and abnormalities. Conversely, dentists have consistently dealt with systemic diseases and pharmacologic treatments that place the periodontium at risk. Most recently, a plethora of reports have claimed periodontal-induced processes that consign poor systemic health to an individual. So with the bewildering number of clinical issues facing the dentists today what can be considered reliable information?

It should be noted that the dentist is bombarded daily with bits and pieces of information over an expansive knowledge base. Considering that information to clinicians doubles every 18 months, it is difficult, if not impossible, for any dentist to consistently ascertain the accuracy of data. Therefore, it is not unexpected that a wide variety of print, audio, visual, and digital information, regardless of the accuracy, creates difficulty in understanding issues and obstacles in making decisions because of the presence of so much information. In this seminar, we will explore clinical issues that have challenged dentists, examine the strengths and weaknesses of the topics and place each conundrum associated with the issue into perspective.

Learning Objectives:
1) Evaluate the risks and benefits of antibiotics in the treatment of periodontal diseases.

2) Discuss the systemic risks of treating bone diseases with bisphosphonates and RANKL inhibitors and the recommendations for prevention and treatment of osteonecrosis of the jaw.

3) Review the risks and benefits of narcotics and NSAIDS in pain management.

4) Appraise the therapeutic benefits of biologics in the treatment of periodontal diseases.

5) Place into perspective the evidence regarding periodontal-systemic interactions.

6) Assess how the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act can affect the practice of dentistry.

Three Things Every Dentist Should Know About Non-Surgical Care and Periodontal Diseases


Course Description: There have been tremendous strides in the past decade to understand the etiology of periodontal diseases. More specifically, there is growing acceptance that periodontal disease is not a single entity but a constellation of diseases with different etiologies. Therefore it is important to understand how periodontal non-surgical care can affect periodontal diseases. This seminar will focus on known risk factors and their impact, the efficacy of non-surgical periodontal therapy and the importance of patient home care.

Course Learning Objectives:

1) Access the impact of risk factors on periodontal diseases.

2) Review the effectiveness of non-surgical periodontal care, especially scaling and root planing.

3) Evaluate the efficacy of mechanical and pharmacologic modalities of patient home care.

Dental Bloopers: How to Avoid the Top Mistakes Dentists Make

Each year, millions Americans are harmed by diagnostic mistakes, drug disasters, and medical treatments. A decade ago, the Institute of Medicine estimated that up to 98,000 people died in hospitals each year from preventable medical errors. Dentists are not immune from making mistakes and this seminar examines specific, practical steps needed to ensure the health and safety of the patient in the dental practice.
