Congress with Dr. John Kois

Dr. John Kois, world renowned clinical dentist, is the founder and director oft he Kois Center in US.

Whilst he also maintains a private practice limited to prosthodontics in Tacoma and Seattle, Washington, he continoues to lecture nationally and internationally becoming a global influential leader of innovation in dentistry. Proof of his skill and commitment lies in his 2002 Saul Schluger Memorial Award for Clinical Excellence in Diagnosis and Treatment Planning, and his Lifetime Achievement Awards from both the World Congress of Minimally Invasive Dentistry and the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry.

He received his D.M.D of the University of Pennsylvania, School of Dental Medicine and Certificate in Periodontal prosthodontics with an M.S.D from the University of Washington, School of Dentistry.

Implementing a risk assessment strategy in clinical practice: Emphasis on Occlusion – Dr. John Kois

The fundamental rationale for a comprehensive treatment approach is a long-term strategy for dental health commensurate with an enhanced level of wellness for our patients. Understanding parameters of disease expression is sometimes confused beacause of misguided science or parameters that have led to patient adaptation. Formulating specific treatment needs based on an individual‘s risk assessment has created new challenges for both the dentist and the patient. Until we have more objective data with better metrics, much of our clinical decision making will remain emotionally driven and empirical.

For example, our knowledge about occlusion has been based on gnathologic principles. These concepts are the basis of a mechanical system with focus on posterior determinants and mutual protection. If it is that simple, why can‘t we always create a therapeutic occlusion? This program will focus on biologic principles necessary for developing a functional occlusion. New paradigms will be presented to enlighten participants about understanding occlusal problems.

From this lecture participants will learn:

1. A systematic approach for treatment planning every patient in their practice

2. To focus on the four most important diagnostic categories

3. Understanding the difference between occlusal disease and functional adaption

4. To develop critical risk parameters to minimize failures and maximize successful results

5. Protocols to implement treatment planning strategies

6. Future needs in dentistry.
