The Pathway to Fellowship – October 8th, 9th & 10th, 2021

Friday: Bioclear and Injection Molding

Date: Friday, October 8, 2021 from 8am to 5pm
Speaker: Dr. Richard Young
8 CE Hands-On Hours (In-Person attendance required)
AGD Subject Code: 250 (Operative)


Say goodbye to layering, condensing, and burnishing! Join Dr Richard Young to experience a unique approach to modern resin dentistry. Participants will perform injection molding to create ideal margins, rounded emergence profiles, and mirror smooth restorations in two Anterior exercises, Deep Anterior Caries and Black Triangles and two Class II exercises. Participants will restore the Clark Class II non-retentive infinity edge preparation with realistic soft tissue dentoforms, Bioclear Matrices, regular and bulk fill 3M composites. Clinical tips for modern instruments will be shared. 


  • The 6 steps to achieve rock solid posterior composite contacts in even the most difficult cases.
  • Modern matrices, wedges and separators
  • How can you best combine flowable and regular composites with the injection molding technique, and when to use bulk fills
  • The next big thing in esthetics – Treating the “Dreaded Black Triangle” with gap closing, super curvaceous, color coded matrices
  • How to handle heated composite


Dr. Richard Young received his dental training at Loma Linda University School of Dentistry in 1985. He is an Assistant Professor of General Dentistry at LLU School of Dentistry and co-directs the undergraduate dental aesthetics program, as well as lecturing in the practice management program. His interest in dental photography spans the last 33 years and he is recognized worldwide for his expertise in digital photography. His innovative and practical methods have inspired countless colleagues to adopt digital photography into their clinical procedures. Dr. Young maintains a private practice with his wife, focusing on esthetic dentistry. He has many interests outside of dentistry. and spends as much time as possible with his wife and daughter enjoying activities centered in the outdoors.

Sunday: The Status of Dental Implants

From Placement to Maintenance to Salvation; What Have We Learned in 57 Years?
Date: Sunday, October 10, 2021 from 8am to 5pm
Speaker: Dr. Alan Dalessandro
CE: 8 CE Lecture Hours (In-Person OR Livestream)
AGD Subject Code: 690 (Implants)

Course Objectives:

• Understand why implants fail in the first place
• Differentiate between different types of implant diseases
• Identify best implant restorations
• Analyze implant maintenance and red flags of monitoring disease progression
• Understand how to successfully treat implants and prevent further progression of disease

Lecture Highlights will Include:

Statistics – An estimated 30-40% of dental implants are in some stage of failure. Why? What can be done about it? Types–Peri-mucositis, peri-implantitis, implant soft tissue problems, implant fixture issues, restorative implant issues. Causes–Implant quality, size, position, placement, restoration.
Placement–Revisiting Biological Principles: Computer-guided implant placement, in-office 3D printing of surgical guides. Restoration–What works, what doesn’t. Where are most of our problems?

Maintenance–How do we maintain implants? How often? What are signs of problems? Review the progression of implant disease.

Salvation–What is peri-implantitis? How to accurately diagnose a problem? At what point do we treat it? 29 Can the implants be saved? How do we treat problems and maintain long-term success?

Treatment–Maintenance therapy vs. surgical therapy


Dr. Alan Dalessandro was one of the early adopters of CBCT scanning and uses this successfully in his practice with every implant case. He also has extensively studied lasers and their use in Periodontics. Most recently he has implemented intraoral scanning and 3D printing implant surgical guides in-house.

His teaching goes back to the 1990s on a wide range of topics; his goal is to pass along knowledge and information to his colleagues to help them become educated on current trends in dentistry. He now teaches groups of periodontists and dentists on a regular basis around the world regarding his topics of expertise, which are the physics of laser technology and the current research in peri-implantitis.
