About this Event

The British Institute of Reconstructive Dentistry has organised their first ever Study Club on "Clinical Decision Making: Endodontics vs Dental Implants" in a debate format. This Study club is open to all members of the dental team. All attendees will gain 2.5 verifiable hours CPD credit.

Learning Objectives:

  1. Discuss the recent advances in endodontics and dental implantology
  2. Discuss the role of advanced 3D imagining in treatment planning
  3. Discuss the factors that affect the success of surgical and nonsurgical endodontic treatment including re - RCTs
  4. Discus clinical decision making criteria and risk: benefit analysis for endodontic/ implant treatment options
  5. Discuss why simple survival/success criteria may not always be sufficient to make comprehensive clinical treatment plan decisions
  6. Discuss how to assess the strategic value of a tooth when deciding to treat or extract & replace
  7. Discuss patient autonomy in patient-centred evidence-based treatment planning when deciding between endodontics vs extraction and Implant replacements

Speakers

  • Dr B David Cohen (PhD, MSc, BDS, MFGDP, LDSRCS, CUEW, MEWI, CertMR)

Dr David Cohen is a Specialist Endodontist with over 25 years’ experience and has treated more than 23,000 teeth!

David first became interested in Endodontics in 1976 during a lecture. In order to advance his knowledge in this field he undertook a number of postgraduate courses in the United States at Boston University School of Graduate Dentistry, under the leadership of Dr. Herbert Schilder. In 1981 he commenced part-time postgraduate research in Endodontics, which led to being awarded an MSc in 1984 on the strength of a thesis entitled "An Investigation into the relative merits of some Endodontics Filling Systems". He was then invited to undertake further research work in 1986, culminating in him being awarded a PhD by the University of Manchester in 1991 on the basis of his thesis entitled "Development and Evaluation of Endodontics Filling and Pulp Capping Materials". This led to the development of new materials in both areas of root filling and pulp capping and worldwide patents for such materials.

David was admitted to the endodontic specialist register as soon as the register was inaugurated in 1998. He currently holds the position of Honorary Research Associate at Manchester University and has lectured extensively in the UK and USA. He has served as the President of the British Endodontic Society and Chairman and/or executive member of a number of local dental and endodontic associations.

  • Prof T Cemal Ucer (BDS, MSc, PhD, Oral Surgeon, ITI Fellow)

Prof Cemal Ucer first established an implant referral centre in 1995. He was awarded an MSc in Implantology at Manchester Dental Hospital following his research into guided bone regeneration and osteopromotion, and later he gained a PhD for his clinical and laboratory studies into the factors affecting the success of implant treatment in iliac grafts and the investigation of the effect of skeletal bone density on implant survival. He has personally trained and mentored more than 1,000 dentists in implant dentistry as one of the main providers of implant education in the UK.

His current clinical research interests include immediate implant placement, reconstructive bone surgery, nerve damage and the effect of bone density on the success of implant treatment. Academically, he has gained European recognition for his work on the development of a new framework for teaching and assessment of clinical competence in implantology. He is a co-author of the consensus paper produced by the Association for Dental Education in Europe (ADEE) following the first pan-European collaboration between EU universities to establish common training and assessment standards in dental implantology. He is an invited member of the working group convened by the FGDP (UK) and the General Dental Council (GDC) to update the Training Standards in Implant Dentistry (TSID) guidelines in 2012 and 2016.

Cemal is a Fellow of the International Team for Implantology (ITI) and a member of the Megagen’s MINEC UK & Ireland Board for education and clinical research. He is a member of the editorial board of JOMR (Journal of Oral & Maxillofacial Research) and the chair of the editorial advisory board of Implant Dentistry Today. Cemal is Professor and Clinical Lead of the MSc programme in Dental Implantology and a member of the Faculty of Examiners of the Royal College of Surgeons of Edinburgh’s Diploma in Implant Dentistry. Cemal is a past president of Association of Dental Implantology (ADI) (2011-2013).

Cemal has been appointed by FGDP (UK) to lead the working group to develop the “national standards in implant dentistry” which is due to be published later in 2018 following the completion of an external consultation process.
