Courses For Dentists

The Use of Ozone in Dentistry - Clinical Course and Workshop

ACIMD – American College for Integrative Medicine and Dentistry
Your Instructors: Dr. Robert Harris DDS, Dr. Phil Mollica DDS, Saddlebrook NJ USA

Dr. Robert Harris DDS and Dr. Phil Mollica DDS have been using ozone in clinical practice since 2002. Both of these experienced clinicians are Professor Emeritus from the Departments of Dentistry and Integrative Medicine at Capital University of Integrative Medicine Washington D.C. and both are on the Board of Directors of the ACIMD – American College of Integrative Medicine and Dentistry. They are the lead investigators in a national outcome study on the use of oxygen/ozone in dentistry. Their Clinical Course and Workshop on the Use of Ozone in Dentistry is restricted to only 10 students to provide each individual an outstanding ‘hands on training’ experience; each course therefore understandably sells out (i.e. register early). This is an outstanding opportunity for licensed Dentists to obtain intensive training on the use of ozone in dentistry, in an intimate gathering that enables one on one instruction. Practitioners are sent home at the end of the course with a complete understanding regarding the Ozone Protocols that are essential for Oral Dental Medicine.

What if you could use just one, highly effective, non-toxic agent for any and all infectious processes in the oral cavity? What if that same agent not only eliminated all pathogens (not just bacteria and viruses, but ALL pathogens)? What if this agent not only eliminated pathogens, but also stimulated natural healing processes in soft tissue, bone, and teeth?Selective elimination of pathogens while supporting healthy cells and stimulating bone and wound healing. Would you be interested? Of course you would!

Would it surprise you to know that this is not a new technique? Ozone / Oxygen gas has been used in dentistry and medicine around the world for decades. It has a safety record that exceeds that of any pharmaceutical agent. There are hundreds of professional studies documenting safety and effiicacy. If you are still reading this, you are interested. If you are interested, you owe it to yourself and your patients to attend this course.

Dentists who have taken this course and embraced ozone / oxygen have jumped to the forefront of dental care. How? Even if you just choose one of the dental applications from the list below, you and your patients will benefit. If you choose to perform them all, you will be on the leading edge of dental medicine.

This course will teach you how to use ozone for the following applications:

Periodontal Appointments:
a. Patient uses ozonated water as a pretreatment rinse (eliminates all surface pathogens)
b. Ozonated water is used in the unit water supply bottles (eliminates biofilm and pathogens)
c. Ozonated water is used in the Ultrasonic water reservoir (eliminates pathogens)
d. Ozonated water is used to irrigate periodontal pockets (elminates pathogens and supports tissue healing)
e. Ozone GAS is used to insufflate ( blow gas into) the periodontal pockets (eliminates pathogens and supports normal tissue healing)
f. Ozone Custom Trays are used for total saturation (microbaric therapy) of all periodontal tissues AND carious lesions, precarious areas, occlusal grooves, interproximal areas and margins of existing restorations. This can prevent caries and aid in recalcification of areas that have minimally invasive caries

Operative Dentistry Appointments:
a. Patient uses ozonated water as a pretreatment rinse
b. Ozonated water is used in the unit water supply bottles
c. Ozone GAS is applied to cavity preparations and crown preparations to sterilize the prepared tooth by oxidizing the remaining pathogens and organic materials in the enamel, remaining caries, and dentinal tubules. This produces a pathogen free oxidized surface that enhances bonding strength and decreases or eliminates post-operative sensitivity.

Endodontic Appointments:
a. Patient uses ozonated water as a pretreatment rinse (eliminates all surface pathogens)
b. Ozonated water is used in the unit water supply bottles (eliminates biofilm and pathogens)
c. Irrigate canals with ozonated water to debride the canals and remove biofilm
d. Insufflate canals with ozone GAS to eliminate pathogens and oxidize organic materials in the dentinal tubulesaccessory canals and lateral canals

Biomimetic Dentistry?  Tell me more…

What is biomimetic dentistry?

Biomimetic dentistry treats weak, fractured, and decayed teeth in a way that keeps them strong and seals them from bacterial invasion. Careful sealing against infection removes the need for 60% to 90% of the crowns and root canals of traditional dentistry.

What is wrong with traditional dentistry?

Traditional dental techniques haven’t taken advantage of the advanced ceramics and adhesives developed by modern engineering. These new technologies allow dentists to use small onlays that work more like your own teeth than the large porcelain crowns used in traditional dentistry. Old techniques can cause your teeth to eventually crack and leak, allowing bacteria to rot your teeth away from the inside. Biomimetic dentistry locks out the bacteria, for safer, more durable dental work.

Who invented biomimetic dentistry?

The principles of biomimetic dentistry were developed by researchers at prestigious universities in Japan, Sweden, Switzerland, The Netherlands, Italy, Turkey, The United States, and many other countries. Groundbreaking work by Gary Unterbrink, Didier Dietschi, Pascal Magne, Urs Belser, and J-F Roulet in Europe, and Ray Bertolotti, John Kois, and John Kanca III in the United States, have promoted these advanced adhesive dentistry techniques for the past 25 years. Dr. Alleman and Dr. Deliperi have refined biomimetic techniques for more than 12 years and have seen a dramatic improvement in their patients’ dental health.

What’s different about biomimetic dentistry?

Instead of simply filling cavities as though they were potholes, biomimetic dentistry keeps the patient’s long-term dental health in focus. By using advanced adhesive techniques and properly fashioned onlays, dentists can make sure that dental work will fail in a repairable way, before your teeth suffer any biological failure. By sealing the tooth against infection and bonding the tooth strongly to prevent fracture, biomimetic dentists make sure they don’t make dental problems any more serious than they already are.


US Pathfinders Intro-Basic Ozone Course

To all who have expressed interest in learning about the powerful and wide-ranging uses of ozone in its many forms in dentistry, we offer two-day program on a Friday/Saturday.

[ If you have someone new who needs the program, have them email me at bill@smilestudio.com and feel free to pass this invitation along. 

(Fri-Sat) 18 hr. CE credit.

8:30 AM to 5-ish on Friday.   Group dinner.  Then 8:30 AM  to 5-ish on Saturday.  Zorbing.  This is a limited-enrollment program.  Our objective is to have participants go home with complete functioning ozone systems ready to rock-n-roll on Monday morning.

 This will be a primarily practical, not heavily theoretical course.  Teaching and terminology level appropriate to docs and staff.

Sit-down lecture/dialogue time of the course will be around 6 hours.  The rest is more practical and hands-on.  Participants will, in advance, receive a three-DVD program from Julian Holmes giving more of the research underpinnings and an overview of ozone technology and applications.  Also a disc of MP3 audios from a program by Eddie Lynch at Ray Bertolotti’s seminar in Yosemite.  Eddie and Julian wrote the book Ozone in Dentistry.   It is expected that this series will be viewed at least once BEFORE coming to the practical program.   Stongly recommend you do this with staff, especially those who will be attending. Be sure to send me a snail address when you respond so we can send your discs.

The rest of the time will be spent actually putting together and using the ozone systems that you will take home.  This will be a LIVE PATIENT PROGRAM.  That means participants will observe and practice a variety of procedures such as desensitization, ozonation of caries, anesthetic reversal, treatment of perio, as well as bleaching and injections into soft tissue.

For course fees contact Bill bill@smilestudio.com  cours course fee includes course and the full ozone generator system—two generators with regulators and tanks.   This allows one system for patient treatment and one to continuously make ozonated water.   Costs are for all hardware and course for one doc and one staff member.  Additional staff from the same office will be $573 each.  [Auditors who’ve taken previous courses will be same as additional staffers.]     Includes protocols manual, lunches, dinner on Friday night.

You are encouraged to bring more staff/hygienists.   This can really help your office get fully up to speed.  We will limit the total number of people at the course, so if you are going to register staff, do it early!  This way staffers can be fully on board and not start off limping with the dentist having to be the implementer and instructor on new technology while trying to do everything else.

Committed and very experienced instructors are Eric Zaremski, Matt Menasco and Cris Duval.  A key part of the process has Cris working specifically with staffers on the very practical applications of ozone water, gas and oils.

The whole program has minimally intervasive dentistry at its core, and we talk quite a bit about all the other parts of dentistry that interdigitate with ozone.  We believe they’re inseparable.

CE credit 18 hrs. accepted for AGD renewal.

Our units are significantly more powerful and versatile than the $17,000+ HealOzone unit or $5K+ Lime Technologies units.  They also run on oxygen from a refillable tank and regulator (provided) NOT air.  You should be able to refill your own tank.  Output is adjustable from max (used for caries sterilization, remineralization, treatment of lesions and perio purposes) to a calibrated low setting that is used to generate appropriate concentration gas for soft tissue injection.

We will set up making ozonated water and will do a very short introduction to oils.  (The Therozone ($7K+) makes water at 4-9 mcg/ml; you should be able to achieve 16-20 mcg/ml with your system.)  We will also demonstrate the ZOT water ozonater from Dennis Mihalka.

Partial program:

Making and applying full- and sectional-arch trays.

Ozone-activated accelerated tooth whitening.

Protocols for restorative, caries, perio, endo, oral surgery, lesions/oral medicine, TMD.

Remineralization.   Minimally invasive dentistry.

Reversing anesthetics.

Safety, legal and hygiene issues.

Heat-free instrument sterilization.

Using a simple roll-about cart system.

A bit on economics and coding issues. 


The system also comes with:

Calibrated ozone generator with crystal generator core putting out over 60 mcg/ml (HealOzone is 4.7)

Ozone generator putting out approx 120 mcg/ml for water-making.

Two small refillable oxygen tanks suitable for roll-about cart or under-counter storage.

Two pediatric regulators that can achieve the requisite 1/32 LPM flow rate. 

Two ozone catalytic converters to convert unused ozone back to oxygen.

Capabilities of generating ozonated water and ozonized oils.

Intertank transfer manifold to economically fill your small cylinder from a larger oxygen tank.

Safety trap with sound barrier to improve ear insufflation.

Glass water maker.

Delivery handpieces: luer lock and cup types with thin bore hose.

Connectors and hosing, filter and diffusers.

Ear insufflation stethoscope system.

Sample syringes and cannulae.

Samples of ozonated oils.  (olive, jojoba/avocado)

Protocols manual.

DVD RAM disc with at least 3 GIG of study material, research and two e-books.

Appropriate clinical attire can be provided.  You might want to bring loupes if you use them routinely. 

Additional units, tanks and other equipment are also available.  There’s also an optional BIG manual of other material and research expanding the materials on the DVD RAM supplementary/research disc.

Participants should be able to actively use this modality immediately on return to their offices. For air travel, we remove the valve from the oxygen tanks and have not had any trouble shipping the equipment tubs as checked baggage.  Yes, we can mail the whole tub if desired, but that’s not our recommendation.  The sooner you start, the less you forget!

For those who simply can’t make it out to the west coast and want their entire staff up to speed, we’ve also developed an in-office process where our instructors come out to your site, set up ozone systems in each op and work two days with the whole office.  This may be the way to fly!

 

Advanced Ozone course. Fri/Sat March 2-3. Upland, CA

Advanced Ozone course.     18 hr CE credit in category 1

$897.   SEMINAR INFORMATION : 805-899-3600 Day of Seminar: 888-809-0150

 

Drs. Tim Rainey and Bill Mueller will be talking about minimally invasive dentistry. These guys literally invented modern air abrasion and have developed some very neat techniques to make it profitable and fun.

Dr. Saul Pressman has written 2 books on ozone and runs the ozonetherapy group on Yahoo for years will be presenting on ozone therapy in the medical world…and very knowledgeable and goes into many areas we have not yet explored. It looks like he’ll be bringing in an ozone sauna to examine.

Dr. Bob Harris works with Phil Mollica on the east coast and is a super font of knowledge in all areas of ozone and biochemistry. He will be talking about advanced injection techniques and his work in treating BONJ.

Cris Duval, RDH will get us the most updated information on developing appropriate verbal skills

Drs. Bill Twohig and Mark Weiser have information about the most recent Texas ozone conference of the AAOT

Dr. Dennis Mihalka will discuss making ozonated water and modifications of the ZOT system.

We will cover many other topics including:

*ear insufflation

*inhalation of ozonoids

*encapsulated oils for GI ingestion

*trigger point injections of muscles with a live patient demo

*making ozonated oils Matt Menasco, Eric Zaremski and Bill Domb

*making ozonated water and measuring concentrations

*engineering wireless control systems

*immediate ozone trays/stock ozone trays

*HOW does ozone work—beyond bug killing

*expert panel discussion

*phase microscopy

NOTE: PARTICIPANTS ARE ASKED TO SKIP CLEANING THEIR WORST POCKET AREA from now until the course. We will then sample pocket contents for viewing under phase system.

And I should have a MAJOR update on some FDA shenanigans and their impact on the whole ozone scene.

[this is an ADVANCED program for those already using ozone, not for those unfamiliar with the technology.]

We’re also expecting a very nice group dinner on Friday night, but no zorbing is planned at this juncture. [no-host bar and Mark and I will be bringing some interesting wines...]

We will have new ozone oil-making kits for those who want them and ear insufflation sound buffers. Participants who have not gotten ear insufflation stethoscope kits will also receive a system.

Yes, I realize this is short notice, but I really think it would be worth the effort to attend. The list of people coming in from all over is already quite impressive and should make for some VERY lively and powerful sharing of information on hardware, techniques and protocols.
