    Anthony Sclar Austin EventAnthony G. Sclar, DMD

    Enhancing Aesthetics and Function of Implant Restorations Through Hard and Soft-Tissue Augmentation

    Abstract, Learning Objectives and Bio


    Dr. Anthony G. Sclar is widely recognized—both by his patients and his peers—as being one of the world’s leading practitioners of oral surgery and implant dentistry. Throughout his career, Dr. Sclar has gained extensive experience in reconstructive and esthetic dental implant surgery, periodontal plastic surgery, and corrective and cosmetic jaw, chin, and cheek bone procedures. Since 1989 he has performed more than 15,000 successful dental implant procedures at his private practice in Miami, Florida. His patients originate from South Florida and the Continental U.S., South and Central America, and the Caribbean.

    Dr. Sclar is the author of numerous publications including the hallmark multi-language textbook, Soft Tissue and Esthetic Considerations in Implant Therapy(Quintessence, 2003). He has made presentations to top dental professionals throughout the U.S., Germany, Italy, Spain, France, Switzerland, the U.K., Australia, Africa, Taiwan, and Canada.

    In addition to participating as a mentor in Osteo Science Foundation’s Clinical Observership Program, Dr. Sclar also is an Adjunct Professor and Director of Clinical Research and Dental Implant Surgery in the Department of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery, Nova Southeastern University College of Dentistry, and is an active contributor to numerous global organizations involved in furthering research and education in the field of implant dentistry.

    Dr. Sclar developed numerous surgical procedures that led to advancements in esthetic and reconstructive implant dentistry resulting in improved outcomes, greater predictability, and less discomfort and down time for patients undergoing dental implant and oral surgery procedures.


    Studies demonstrate the dimensional change and reduction of hard and soft-tissue indicating insufficient characteristics to support a natural tooth, necessitating exodontia. Careful preparation of the site, prior to and immediately after tooth removal, plays a significant role in the long-term prognosis of the placed implant. Setting the ideal conditions for wound healing increases the stability of the alveolar structure that supports the implant site. Surgical precision and the use of biomaterials from autogenous, allogeneic, xenogeneic, and alloplastic sources can promote hard and soft-tissue growth and provide predictable outcomes. This lecture will describe clinical techniques and challenges to rebuilding an implant site and will feature biomaterials that support wound healing and new hard and soft-tissue formation. The importance of sufficient soft-tissue will be highlighted. Aligning the correct procedure and biomaterials to the appropriate case selection and restorative option is vital to ensure a stable and aesthetic result.

    Learning Objectives

    1)    Highlight surgical techniques that optimize aesthetic outcomes

    2)    Discuss the role of soft-tissue augmentation as a supportive influence on implant stability

    3)    Consider alternative biomaterials and their role in the healing process and implant site development





    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
