Dr. Feinberg’s Speaking Engagements

Course Date:  June 1, 2024

Course Title:

Maximizing Outcomes for Full Coverage Restorative Dentistry

Course Description:

This course will define what constitutes an ideal treatment outcome for full coverage restorative dentistry.  The definition will stress longevity and  the ingredients required for a high percentage of case longevity rather than esthetics and economics.  A new paradigm for evaluating how full coverage restorations should be accomplished will be presented.  The presentation will showcase how full coverage restorative dentistry can benefit patients, as well as its enormous track record of successful outcomes.  Numerous examples will be presented from a library of more than 100,000 pictures taken over seven decades. Many of these cases have been documented with follow-up X-Rays over decades.

Course Objectives:

Participants will learn:

–what constitutes an ideal outcome for full coverage restorations

–why a precision mindset and a step-by-step approach to full coverage restorations is important for successful outcome.

–how full coverage restorations can be designed to eliminate recurrent decay and periodontal bone loss; and how to apply proven engineering principles to ensure this outcome.

–the difference between an overall point of view and a piecemeal point of view in examining and treating patients.

–Why fixed bridgework on natural tooth abutments often offers superior outcomes to the single-tooth implant

–When to best utilize fixed restorations, removable restorations, and implant restorations for the best possible outcome.

Course Title:

Diagnostic Considerations and Restorative Management of Difficult Cases

Course Description:

Difficult cases can be simplified when carefully thought out.  A strong background of proficiency in crown and bridge, precision attachments, restorative dentistry and implants allows the practitioner to choose what is best for the patient, not what the practitioner can do well.  This course will present a unique approach to diagnosis and treatment planning that will offer the practitioner more options to help patients—including patients who are not candidates for sophisticated dentistry.   The approach is evidence-based and numerous case examples will be demonstrated from a library of more than 100,000 slides, digital pictures and X-Rays taken during the past 70 years.

Course Objectives:

Participants will learn:

–a rationale for choosing treatment options

–how to manage difficult cases such as excessive wear, periodontal bone loss and malocclusions

–how to restore teeth with little or no clinical crowns

–when to best utilize fixed restorations, removable restorations and implant restorations

–about the Double-Tilt Precision Attachment Partial Denture, and why it is often a superior treatment option for both natural tooth and implant abutments

ONWARD Study Group Meetings

Introduction to the Full Arch fixed immediate protocol from the Surgical Perspective


07:00 pm

Dr. Amogh Velangi, Diplomate Amer. Board of OMS; Oral & Maxillofacial Surgeon at Valley Oral Surgery in Phoenix; Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeon and cofounder of the ProSmile Dental Implant Center; Board member, Arizona State Board of Dental Examiners.

Dr. Shawn Bader's Office: 8890 E Desert Cove Ave; Scottsdale, AZ 85260

Full arch rehabilitation with dental implants in edentulous patients or with compromised remaining teeth is a highly predictable

treatment. Three-dimensional position of the implants, as well as bone reduction, are crucial points for treatment success,

therefore, tilted implants must be designed minimizing the extent of cantilever and avoiding the commitment of the maxillary

sinus and inferior alveolar nerve. The hybrid prosthesis is the most common type of prosthesis used in this kind of treatment and

minimum space is required to allocate for the prosthetic abutment, the framework and the teeth. This training aims to

demonstrate the need for bone reduction, proper implant placement, proper selection of straight and/or angled abutments, and

the immediate provisional options.


• Learn the proper implant selection, design and drilling sequence for different bone densities

• Discuss 3-dimensional planning of implant placement

• Discuss ideal abutment selection for the biological width

• Learn the key components of prosthetic pre-planning for optimal success

• Discuss when to choose guided surgery vs. free-hand

• Discuss the various applications of digital technology in full-arch fixed implant rehabilitation

• Focus on the team approach and proper communication that leads to success
