Impaired Mouth Syndrome to Holistic Mouth Solutions

Felix Liao, DDS
Dentists who are trained as mouth doctors are in the driver's seat to redevelop patients' airway to support sleep. In this day-long seminar, we will discuss the signs and symptoms of living with a normal size-6 tongue in a underdeveloped size-3 habitat, and how to resolve them naturally while the patient sleeps using oral appliances and a Whole Health-oriented integrative collaboration among all health professionals.

Surgical Savvy: From Extractions to Cavitations

From Extractions to Cavitations Dr. Blanche Grube DMD 

Beginner Muscle Testing

Dr. Louisa Williams DC, ND
Learn how the fascial-matrix connective tissue in our bodies can contract (similar to kinesiology) in response to challenges to help fine-tune our diagnosis and treatment on patients; how to use the Reflex Arm Length (RAL) measurement as an easy and reliable energetic testing tool; how the RAL can determine the most optimal nutritional supplements (which vitamin C tests best?) and foods (which brand of coconut oil should I buy?), as well as identify primary food allergies, dental toxins (heavy metals, galvanism, focal infections), and significant malocclusions; and more. This introductory workshop will include lecture, demos, and workshop practice periods.

Eleclectic Pain Management

Nick Meyer, DDS
Learn to use modern energy medicine in this hand-son workshop. Understand the theory and use of homeopathy, laser, microcurrents, oxidative modalities and more. We will explore muscle testing, SRT, MSA, and other diagnostic techniques.


Main Session

Focal Infection Theory Returns

Blanche Grube, DMD
The old theory of focal infections, responsible for initiating and progressing diseases in the body, has fallen by the wayside. It was believed that since you could not culture anaerobic bacteria from the mouth, then they simply did not exist. Recently, however, polymerase chain reaction technology has given us a new way to detect the presence of microorganisms inside root canal treated teeth and in bone pathologies. This has given us a refreshing look at a venerable and, I would assert, prematurely discarded theory.

Born To Be Healthy

Alvin H. Danenberg, DDS
A discussion of modern human evolution and how our primal ancestors (as well as primal societies living in remote areas of the world today) hardly ever had gum disease, tooth decay, or other chronic diseases. However, today’s modern, civilized societies are now riddled with these diseases. I review what has changed in our bodies to allow this to happen and then offer remedies to return our bodies to the near-perfect machines we were designed to be.

Intraoral Acupressure

James Alan, DDS
Learn how using oral acupressure on the palate can assist behavior control related to appetite control and weight loss.

Radiographic Signs of Significant Systemic Diseases

Dale A. Miles BA, DDS, MS FRCD(C), Dip. ABOMR, Dip. ABOM
Review some of the key clinical features of systemic diseases and disorders we see in our patients and get tools to recognize the radiographic manifestations on multiple imaging modalities. Come see what you may have been missing and improve your management of patients with “significant systemic diseases!”

The Importance of HIPAA Compliance to Biological Dentists and Physicians

Gregory Ewing, JD, MPH, CISSP
What you NEED to know to protect your practice.

Deep Fungal Infections Arising from Gingivitis/Periodontitis or Apical Infections

John Parks Trowbridge, MD
Modern medicine is plagued by illness for which etiologic explanation is absent: leukemia, leukopenia, MS, acute renal failure, prostatitis, severe dermatoses, immune deficiency syndromes, autoimmune illness such as rheumatoid arthritis or lupus – even non-specific recurrent infections. Recently-available genetic testing to identify fungal species isolated from biofilms recovered from venous blood suggest that deep fungal infections might be causative or at least contributory.

Mucosal Oral Lesions: What Are They Telling You about the Body?

Dharti Patel, DMD
The course will review both oral manifestations of systemic disease and the oral pathology of mucosal disease, and provide a body-wide perspective in the diagnosis and management of oral mucosal disease with naturopathic therapies and how integrative care can be beneficial to quality of life.

How Occult Dental Problems Cause Systemic Illness

David Minkoff, MD
Learn how dental interventions can lead to systemic illness where the dental cause is never suspected and the illness is never really handled. See cases that illustrate this, many of which are serious medical problems where the dental link was never suspected.
