Pre-Symposium Treatment Planning Series

Register for Symposium and get a little lagniappe—some extra love from Seattle Study Club! Three treatment planning sessions remain with master clinicians presenting live in December and January prior to the main meeting. The cases are approachable, illuminating and enjoyable. This is a great opportunity to improve your case management skills.

This is an exclusive bonus for Symposium 2021 registrants—register early to participate!

Private Pre-Symposium Treatment Planning Sessions

Registered attendees will receive emails with access to register for each of the treatment planning sessions below 1 week, 1 day and 1 hour before the session begins.


DECEMBER 3 | 5:30 – 6:15 pm Pacific

Rebecca Bockow, DDS, MS

In this case planning session, Dr Bockow will present novel, non-surgical treatment strategies to solve skeletal malocclusions in adults.

Learning Objectives:

  • Understand non-surgical adult expansion using tad supported expanders.
  • Learn about dentoalveolar correction of a class 2 malocclusion.

Lecture, up to 45 minutes
Multi-Disciplinary Topics; AGD Subject Code 149


DECEMBER 17 | 5:30 – 6:15 pm Pacific

Effrat Habsha BSc, DDS, Dip Prostho, MSc, FRCD(C)

Comprehensive oral rehabilitations often require a multidisciplinary treatment approach.  Proper treatment planning and sequencing is crucial to achieve ideal outcomes. The use of digital technology can significantly enhance the diagnostic and treatment planning phase of care. This presentation will outline key treatment planning principles and esthetic considerations which must be taken into account with comprehensive rehabilitations. Treatment sequencing and timing will also be reviewed to help participants achieve predictable outcomes.

Learning Objectives:

  • Review digital tools which can enhance the diagnostic work-up and treatment planning.
  • Review esthetic analysis and treatment sequence in comprehensive oral rehabilitations.

JANUARY 7 | 5:30 – 6:15 pm Pacific

Edward Pat Allen, DDS, PhD

In this challenging case scenario, there is gingival recession and a ridge deficiency facial to a single implant replacement of tooth #7. There is facial and proximal recession on the adjacent canine and the narrow diameter implant was placed well within the ridge, but too close to the canine. It already had a CTG to treat the deficiency without success. Initial documentation will be presented, time will be given to gather thoughts on treatment possibilities, and Dr Allen will show the treatment rendered. The session will close with Q&A.

Learning Objectives:

  • Identify treatment options for soft tissue defects in proximity to implants.
  • Gain better insight into managing soft tissue defects regarding the final restorative outcome.
