Speakers

Prof Sašo Ivanovski

Session Title: Scaffold Guided Tissue Regeneration

Guided tissue regeneration (GTR) has been the gold-standard clinical technique for bone and periodontal regeneration for several decades. However, clinical outcomes have been largely unpredictable, and we continue to explore alternative options. To this end, novel technologies such as advanced imaging and 3D printing offer the opportunity to enhance the outcomes of GTR procedures through the use of scaffolds. This lecture will describe novel regenerative approaches using 3D printing and biofunctionalization of scaffolds with growth factors and drugs. The feasibility of combining these approaches with established surgical techniques will be explored, and their potential for clinical utilisation will be critically evaluated.

Bio: Dr Ivanovski is the Professor of Periodontology at the University of Queensland School of Dentistry where he leads the specialist training program in periodontology. He currently combines this position with his part time specialist practice in periodontics and surgical implant dentistry. Sašo is a past federal president of the Australasian Osseointegration Society (AOS) and the Australian Society of Periodontology (ASP). He has published over 120 articles in the peer-reviewed literature and leads a research group with an interest in oro-dental regeneration, tissue engineering and implantology.

Dr Geoffrey Young

Session Title: Endodontic Disinfection: Past, Present and Future

Predictable comprehensive disinfection of the root canal system remains one of the great obstacles in endodontic treatment. Challenges include effective delivery of antimicrobial irrigants/medicaments into the fine and complex intra-radicular space, as well as the biofilm nature of the infection. Available techniques and strategies to enhance endodontic disinfection will be reviewed. Evidence-based clinical protocols will be provided to overcome challenges and improve treatment outcomes.

Bio: Dr Geoff Young obtained his BDS (University Medal) from the University of Sydney in 2002, and his Specialist degree from the University of Melbourne in 2007. He went on to establish Sydney Endodontic Centre - an accredited specialist endodontic group practice in Sydney. Dr Young was the first endodontist in NSW awarded Fellowship of the RACDS in the Special Field of Endodontics, and is a current Examiner for the FRACDS (GDP) Final Examination.

Dr Ken Hooi Prosthodontics

Session Title: Influence of materials and technologies in our future treatment planning

This presentation is an observational narrative of some current concepts in prosthodontic materials and digital technologies, as well as a discussion of their influence on our future treatment planning concepts. Specific topics areas include CAD-CAM and artificial intelligence as well as the pairing of treatment objectives and risk assessment as a pivotal utility in clinical treatment planning and consent processes.

Bio: Ken is a Prosthodontist currently working in private practice in Sydney and Bathurst. His undergraduate and postgraduate degrees were completed at the University of Sydney in 1992 (Bachelor of Dental Surgery), 2003 (Graduate Diploma in Clinical Dentistry – Oral Implants) and 2009 (Master of Dental Science – Prosthodontics). Dental Design Studio 32 is very pleased to announce that Ken has offered to provide specialist Implant and Prosthodontics services in the Coffs Harbour area. Ken has worked in both public hospital and private practice settings (Rural and Sydney CBD). Ken’s teaching experience with the University of Sydney comprises six years with dental undergraduates (currently as Specialist Clinical Associate), and lecturer with Continuing Education Extended Fixed Prosthodontics since 2005. Ken’s professional interests include complex rehabilitation, implant surgery and prosthodontics, and clinical informatics.

Dr Nour Tarraf Orthodontics

Session Title: New technology in orthodontics: has it really changed what we do?

Technology has touched on every aspect of our lives so how has it affected orthodontics? In recent years orthodontics has been impacted by the introduction of multiple new technologies from diagnostic to planning to treatment tools. 3D printing has revolutionized our appliance options with the sky being the limit for innovative design. How does this translate to better or more efficient treatment? Does it change the patient experience? We now also have greater insight with 3D imaging into the effects of growth modification procedures on facial growth, airways and function. What is it that we actually achieve? And are the new methods giving us better results? This presentation will delve into some of the new technologies in orthodontics, how they have altered modern practice and how they have altered the patient experience. I will also look at what disadvantages or negative aspects they may have. It will also go into some of the controversy regarding growth modification techniques, early treatments and airway management.

Bio: Dr Nour Tarraf completed his Bachelor of Dentistry at Cairo University with Honours in 2001, followed by an Orthodontic residency at Cairo University, before moving to Sydney with his wife in 2005 to join the Orthodontic Masters Degree program. Dr Tarraf finished his Masters Degree in Orthodontics at the University of Sydney in 2008 with Honours. He also received the University Award for the best overall postgraduate performance in the Masters Degree at the Faculty of Dentistry, as well as the International Merit scholarship for three consecutive years. Nour also completed the membership exams in orthodontics for the Royal College of Surgeons of Edinburgh and the Royal Australasian College of Dental Surgeons in 2008. He is the current president of the Australasian Society of Lingual Orthodontics and holds membership with the Australian Dental Association, Australian Society of Orthodontists, European Society of Orthodontics and the World Society of Lingual Orthodontics.

Dr Peter Aquilina
