This interactive course will utilize videos of professionally acted ethical dilemmas recently developed by ACD and Indiana University. Discussion will explore the analysis of the dilemmas, including basic concepts and reasoning with general applicability to other situations.  The dilemmas were developed by Dr. Chambers for dentists and data have been collected allowing perspectives from both dentists and patients.

Come In and Catch It: The Review that Sticks presented by John A. Svirsky, DDS, MEd will be presented on Saturday, April 9th from 8:00-11:30 a.m. for 3.5 hours C.E. credit

This interactive, informative, and entertaining soft tissue review course covers the recognition, diagnosis, and treatment of the 25 soft tissue lesions that every dentist and hygienist should know and treat appropriately. A number of the entities only require recognition. The classic lesions that have been forgotten since school will be brought back to life, and your diagnostic confidence will be re-energized. Some interesting cases may pop up throughout the course.
