Continuing Education
Posted on 8/10/2015 by Fariba Mutschler
The Oregon Dental Conference is coming up this week at the Oregon Convention Center in Portland.

There will be lots of great courses on important dental topics. Governor John Kitzhaber, MD will give the General Session presentation on Rethinking the US Health Care System.

I plan to attend lectures on Laser Dentistry and Going Green in the Dental Office.

We have been using the BioLase MD dental laser for nearly a year and found it to be useful for cutting off extra gum tissue around braces without anesthestic, for clipping tied tongues with almost no bleeding, and for cutting out decay on teeth with little or no anesthestic shots.

Most of the kids are surprised with the popping sound but are happy to avoid a shot for their fillings. Click here for more on Lasers.

There seems to be a movement in dentistry to pay more attention to the environment with the lecture at the Oregon Dental Conference dedicated to this topic.

I have already written about our intention to reduce our impact on the environment with the article on Going Green. The Oregon Dental Conference is moving in that direction by providing all the session handouts in an electronic form to avoid wasteful printing.

East Portland’s Oregon Convention Center is a great location because many dentists can take the MAX to get there and avoid both car exhaust pollution and parking fees.
