    Dr. Brian Goodacre

    Lecture Synopsis

      This course will focus on the current and future applications of digital dentures. Discussing the benefits, limitations, and clinical workflows. The widespread use of intraoral scanners have changed the way we fabricate dentures. This presentation will demonstrate the clinical workflows and discuss the pros and cons of using these emerging techniques. Additionally, it is widely known that 3D-printed complete dentures are growing in popularity, but how do they compare to milled dentures? This lecture will compare the physical properties of milled and printed complete dentures to help determine their best applications.


      Dr. Brian J. Goodacre received his DDS degree from Loma Linda University School of Dentistry in 2013. He completed a four-and-a-half-year combined program in Prosthodontics and Implant Dentistry at Loma Linda University School of Dentistry in 2017, earning an MSD degree. He is a board-certified prosthodontist and the director of clinical technologies for Nobel Biocare North America. He is an adjunct professor at Loma Linda University School of Dentistry providing lectures to both dental and graduate students. Dr. Goodacre lectures both nationally and internationally on topics related to digital dentistry, prosthodontics, and implant dentistry. Additionally, he has published over twenty articles in peer-reviewed journals and contributed to 6 textbook chapters. He maintains a private practice located in Upland, California where he practices with his father and classmate.

      Dr. Manor Haas

      Lecture Synopsis

        This program will show how you can perform endodontics more predictably, in less time and more safely, by incorporating endodontic innovations.   Many recent advances in endodontic armamentaria and protocols have, for the better, simplified clinical endodontics.  By doing so, we can perform endodontics more efficiently and safely.  This will include innovations in diagnosis, instrumentation (including calcified canals), intra-canal disinfection, obturation, and single visit endodontics, amongst other aspects of endodontics.

        Numerous practical tips, tricks and tools will be highlighted to help you consistently perform root canal treatments more predictably.



        Learn which innovations will help you consistently perform endo faster and more safely

        Learn how to predictably negotiate, instrument and obturate calcified and curved canals (including MB2).

        Learn how to perform single visit root canals with predictable outcomes.

        Learn how to prevent and manage post-op pain and flare-ups.

        Learn the real world return on investment endo can bring to you, your patients and your practice with very practical clinical and administrative tips.


        Dr. Haas is a certified specialist in endodontics and is extensively involved in continuing education (webinars, lectures and workshops) to general dentists and specialists.  He is on staff at the University of Toronto and Hospital for Sick Children Department of Dentistry, and maintains a full-time private practice limited to Endodontics and Microsurgery in Toronto.  Dr. Haas is a regular contributor to dental magazines and websites and has lectured internationally on nearly all aspects of modern endodontics.   He takes great pride in providing very honest and extremely practical courses.

        Dr. Joe Kan

        Lecture Synopsis

          Achieving anterior implant esthetics is challenging and demanding.

          Creating implant restorations with harmonious gingival contour that emulate nature is a fusion of some

          science and lots of art. Understanding the biologic and physiologic limitations of soft and hard tissue is

          key to facilitate predictability in complex esthetic situations.

          This course will focus on current implant treatment philosophies and methodologies for replacing


          missing teeth and the management of patients who will be losing a tooth or teeth in the esthetic zone.

          Emphasis will be placed on diagnosis and treatment planning, complex case and complication

          management, interdisciplinary treatment options, occlusion management, and soft and hard tissue

          regeneration for optimal anterior implant esthetics.


          -Prognostic keys for predictable implant esthetics

          -Immediate vs. Delayed vs. Early tooth replacements concepts

          -Bone & Soft Tissue Regeneration Concepts

          -Papilla management

          -Gingival recession and Papilla loss

          -Management of surgical and prosthetic complications

          -Restorative Emergence Profile Contouring (From Provisionalization to Final Crown)

          -Root Shield: What I learned over the past 13 years?


          Dr. Kan completed Prosthodontics and Implant Dentistry from Loma Linda University. He is a Professor

          and maintains a private practice.
