A panel of four prominent local dentists spoke to a sold-out auditorium of fellow dental professionals at the June 5th continuing education class, An Overview of Periodontal Issues in the Dental Practice. The panel consisted of Patrick Goroski DDS, Jeff Hollister DDS MS, Lynn Sayre-Carstairs DMD, and Paul Vanderheyden DDS. Dr. Patrick Goroski spoke on the topic of Diagnosis and Management of Peri-Implant Disease; Dr. Jeff Hollister spoke about Immediate Implant Placement vs. Extraction and Ridge Preservation; Dr. Lynn Sayre-Carstairs spoke about Dental Lasers in Periodontics and The Pinhole Surgical Technique; and Dr. Paul Vanderheyden spoke on the topic of Soft Tissue Grafting Techniques for Challenging Situations.Held at the PG&E Energy Education Center in San Luis Obispo, this half-day class resulted in a ‘win-win’ opportunity. Those attending earned 4 CEU’s and Tolosa Children’s Dental Center earned over $7,400 in net proceeds gained from class registration fees and from the sale of raffles for a chance to win an Evolve 6500K high-speed handpiece, valued at $595 and donated by Dr. Glenn Prezkop. Dr. Sorina Ratchford was the lucky winner of the hand-piece.
