Complete Digital Work Flow on Full Arch Restoration with Fixed Prothesis 

Learning Objectives and Bio


Dr. Spagnoli is the author of over 30 articles and book chapters. He has served as section editor of the Cleft Palate-Craniofacial Journal and AAOMFS Knowledge Update. In 2005 and 2006, he co-authored two award-winning papers published in the Journal of Periodontalology and the Journal of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery. His most recent article, “Dental Implants and the Use of rhBMP-2,” which appeared in the May 2011 issue of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery Clinics of North America, was reprinted in Dental Clinics of North America that same year. His research, numerous lectures, and continuing education courses are focused on temporomandibular joint disorders and surgery, tissue engineering, and preprosthetic surgery. Dr. Spagnoli, who was formerly the Chair at LSU-New Orleans, is now in private practice in North Carolina.

Complete digital work flow on full arch restoration with fixed prothesis


  1. To understand the complexities of a complete digital workflow for complex patients requiring arch reconstruction/grafting and fixed implant placement
  2. Visualize the process that integrates, CBCT, intraoral scanning and virtual surgical planning for these patients
  3. Understand the advantages and disadvantages of “in office” printed and milled prosthesis.

Complete digital work flow on full arch restoration with fixed-removable hybrid prothesis


  1. These objectives are identical to the objectives for the fixed prosthesis patient but with emphasis on restorative alternatives.

Treatment of the Edentulous and Terminal Dentition Maxilla with Bone Grafts and Implants


  1. To discuss and present methods of maxillary grafting or enhancement that prepare the maxilla for a removable or fixed prosthesis. Grafting methods will be correlated with prosthetic options that achieve masticatory efficiency, and esthetic restoration.
  2. The presentation will review clinical evaluation, Radiological evaluation and comprehensive treatment planning.
  3. Implant configurations that favor graft or native bone maintenance will be discussed in conjunction with prosthetic principles. The concept of guided implant and guide indexed prosthesis placement to gain accuracy and efficiency will be introduced.

Vertical and Transverse Alveolar Ridge Construction: Patient Specific Treatment


  1. To present a wide variety of hard and soft tissue grafting options using autogenous, allogeneic and or xenogenic material.
  2. Focus on personalized treatment that takes into consideration several factors including, dentition, alveolar ridge deficiencies, prosthetic final outcome all combined with complex medical histories.
  3. Present a new concept for “layered” grafting techniques





FSOMS Speaker MufsonRichard A. Mufson, DDS

Preventing Medical Errors/Risk Management 

Abstract, Learning Objectives and Bio


Dr. Richard Mufson is an oral and maxillofacial surgeon in private practice in North Miami Beach, Florida. He is a graduate of Temple University School of Dentistry in Philadelphia, PA, the post-graduate OMS residency training at Georgetown University Medical Center in Washington, D.C., and is a Diplomate of the American Board of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery. For well over twenty five years, Dr. Mufson has lectured extensively on required state-mandated courses for the practice of dentistry, including Laws and Rules of Dentistry, Medical Errors, and Risk Management. He is also Past President of the South Florida District Dental Association and Florida Society of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeons.


This lecture will satisfy the state-mandated biennial 2 Hour requirement for prevention of medical errors, and will include information on the occurrence, prevalence, and scope of problem of medical errors within our health care system, in addition to discussion of root cause analysis, patient safety, and prevention and reduction of errors potentially resulting in patient harm.

There will also be an emphasis on the topic of risk management, including techniques and methods of practice designed to lower the risk of a patient initiating a lawsuit, and reducing the likelihood of a plaintiff prevailing in the event a lawsuit is filed. Also utilizing a “best of”  approach to important concepts taught to us over many years by OMSNIC, and others from personal observation, the information will be combined, collated, and uniquely presented in the format of an “algorithm” specifically designed to prevent and defend three relatively common and representative categories of potential lawsuits we face in our daily practice. 

Learning Objectives

(1) Techniques designed to increase awareness of, and prevent, medical errors

(2) Techniques designed to (a) lower the risk and/or likelihood of a lawsuit, or in the event of a legal claim against us, (b) lower right risk and/or likelihood of the plaintiff prevailing

(3) An algorithm for reducing patient injury and/or associated legal claims, using as examples, three types of claims OMS are called upon to defend: Lingual nerve injury, IA nerve injury, and TMJ
