Overview & Objectives

Alumni Day will focus on the on the specialty of orofacial pain and include presentations from some of the finest leaders in the field: Drs. Ronald Auvenshine, Franklin Dolwick, and Jeffrey Okeson. The all-day virtual CE course will include a tribute in memory of Dr. Henry Gremillion. In addition to tribute videos and testimonials about Dean Gremillion's life and work, the day will include six hours of lecture on the following topics: 

TOPIC 1: NEW PERSPECTIVES ON TMD: A DIAGNOSTIC CHALLENGE

Introduction by: Gary D. Klasser, DMD
Presented by: Jeffrey P. Okeson, DMD

Many concepts in dentistry are associated with temporomandibular disorders. Some of these concepts are supported by sound data and many are not. This presentation highlights some of the facts and fantasies related to the etiology of TMD. The diagnostic challenges of TMD are also discussed. After participating in this presentation, attendees will be better able to understand the hallmarks of TMD pains & how to quickly separate TMD from other orofacial pains, and appreciate how evidence-based dentistry has changed our approach to understanding and managing TMD. 

Dr. Jeffrey Okeson is Dean, Director of the Orofacial Pain Center, and Professor and Chair of the Department of Oral Health Services at the University of Kentucky College of Dentistry. He has more than 240 publications in the area of occlusion, TMD and orofacial pain in various national and international journals. He is a past President of the American Academy of Orofacial Pain and former editor of the Academy’s Guidelines. He is a founding Diplomate of the American Board of Orofacial Pain and has serviced twice as president. Dr. Okeson has received numerous teaching awards including “The International Dentist of the Year Award” from the Academy of Dentistry International. This is the highest award recognized by this Academy and was given to him in recognition of his worldwide efforts in providing education in the area of temporomandibular disorders and orofacial pain.  


TOPIC 2: THE ROLE OF TEMPOROMANDIBULAR SURGERY IN THE TREATMENT OF TMJ PATIENTS

Introduction by: Christopher J. Spencer, DDS
Presented by: M. Franklin Dolwick, DMD, PhD

The role of temporomandibular surgery in the treatment of TMJ patients will be presented and discussed. The indications, techniques, outcomes and complications will be discussed for arthrocentesis, arthroscopy, arthroplasty, and total joint reconstruction. A surgical protocol will be presented. After participating in this presentation, attendees will be better able to discuss the indications, outcomes, and complications associated with TMJ arthrocentesis, arthroscopy, arthroplasty, and alloplastic total joint reconstruction.

Dr. Franklin Dolwick is Professor and Chair, Department of Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery and Parker E. Mahan Facial Pain Endowed Professor at the College of Dentistry at the University of Florida, and Director of Hospital Dentistry for Shands Healthcare. His current research interests include temporomandibular joint arthrocentesis, temporomandibular joint biomechanics and tissue engineering of the temporomandibular joint disk, office-based arthroscopy, total joint reconstruction, and treatment of temporomandibular joint internal derangement and osteoarthritis. Dr. Dolwick received his DMD from the University of Kentucky, PhD and certification in Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery from the Medical College of Virginia and is board-certified by the American Board of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery. A pioneer in the development of TMJ arthrography and surgical procedures for the treatments of TMJ internal derangement, he served on several TMJ study committees for the ADA, National Institutes for Dental Research, and the American Association of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeons. He has published over 100 papers and co-authored four books.  


TOPIC 3: GENERAL PRACTITIONER'S ROADMAP TO TREATING THE TMD PATIENT 

Introduction by: A. Dale Ehrlich, MS, DDS, MAGD
Presented by: Ronald Auvenshine, DDS, PhD

Treating complex pain patients can be extremely difficult, time consuming, and requires understanding the complexities of underlying factors. Participants will learn to differentiate acute pain from chronic pain, the steps required to proceed with treatment, and – because there is no cure for chronic pain − the need to empower patients with long-term pain management skills.  After participating in this lecture presentation, attendees will be better able to understand the importance of knowing pain classification,  how to formulate the most important questions for TMD patients, whether to initiate treatment or refer the patient to another practitioner, how to design a logical treatment sequence to optimize your time and the importance of having a trained staff to support TMD patient care.
  

Dr. Ronald Auvenshine served as a faculty member at LSU School of Dentistry before making a decision to enter private practice and move to Houston. After a successful forty years in private practice focusing on TMD and orofacial pain, Dr. Auvenshine retired in December 2018 as the Founder & Director of MedCenter TMJ in Houston, Texas. He continues to lecture nationally and internationally in the fields of TMD and orofacial pain. Dr. Auvenshine is Founder & Director of the Orofacial Pain Clinic at DeBakey V.A. hospital in Houston, Adjunct Assistant Professor at the University of Texas Dental Branch in Houston, and visiting faculty at LSU School of Dentistry and for the LSU Orofacial Pain Continuum in New Orleans. He served as President of the American Academy of Orofacial Pain, was a founding member of the American Board of Orofacial Pain, served on the editorial board of the Journal of the Texas Dental Association and on the Council of Membership of the ADA, and as Past-President of the Greater Houston Dental Society.
