    Dr. Kyle Stanley

    "The LA Dental Update": From AI and Implant Dogmas to Mental Health in Dentistry


    This presentation will showcase the latest in dentistry coming from the multiple areas in which Dr. Kyle Stanley lives. The basics of Artificial Intelligence (AI) and how it is changing dentistry will be discussed. This presentation will also show proven research and thought-provoking ideas regarding dogmas in implant dentistry. By picking apart old dogmas regarding materials, design, maintenance, etc., we can understand the periimplant biology and limit complications in the long term. In addition, Dr. Stanley will introduce the taboo topic of mental health in dentistry. We will examine different aspects of predictable clinical dentistry, practice management, and research-proven stress reduction techniques that allow dentists to be more successful in their clinical practices and live a more balanced life.

    Learning Objectives

    • Understand the basics of AI in dentistry
    • Learn how AI can streamline clinical practice
    • Examine dogmas in implant dentistry and how research may change our daily implant restorative practice
    • Identify stress topics in most dentists' lives
    • Give research-proven ways to reduce stress both clinically and in your personal life 


    Dr. Kyle Stanley, named as "The Next Generation of Cosmetic Dentistry" by the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry, “The Top 10 Young Educators in Dentistry” by the Seattle Study Club, and "World's Top 100 Doctors in Dentistry" graduated from USC and then went on to complete a dental implant residency and dental implant specialty in Brazil. He is a researcher who has published in some of the top dental journals about topics relating to esthetics, implants, and plastic surgery. With his company Pearl, he is changing the way patients are treated through artificial intelligence. Dr. Stanley is the most prominent advocate of mental health in dentistry and through his Light Side community has helped countless dentists reduce stress and anxiety. He maintains a private practice in Beverly Hills where he focuses on implant surgery and prosthetics. 

    In lieu of a lunch,  our executive will make a donation to the Edmonton Food Bank to help those in need.

    Dr. Philip Walton

    Immediacy in the Esthetic Zone: Optimizing Results

    Implant replacement at the highest level must incorporate an understanding of underlying biologic principles. Although the single tooth implants require diligent planning, the partial edentulous predicament poses unique challenges, especially when working in the esthetic zone.

    An understanding of when, where and how many implants to place in various edentulous permutations to optimize success will be discussed. Key articles that have clinical relevance to maintaining bone levels, papillary presence and the appropriate dimensions implants should be placed in relationship to each other and surrounding natural teeth will be reviewed.

    A number of cases both successful and so called "less than ideal outcomes" will be analyzed to understand what went right and wrong in an effort to increase predictable desirable results with an emphasis on the role of immediacy. This course is geared to those involved in both the surgical placement or restoration of dental implants.

    Cement vs Screw Retention: How to Increase Implant Success (amazing for restorative and surgical side)

    The definition of success for dental implants has evolved over the years, but the basic tenants remain the same - to ensure long term integration, maintain bone levels and an absence of peri-implant disease. Although most clinicians are aware of risk factors involved in implant failure few deem the restorative technique as a major culprit.

    Through the years many have debated the pros and cons to screw and cement retained options for dental implant restorations. A wealth of evidence is now mounting that residual cement may play a critical role in peri-implant disease. Cement remnants have been thought to undertake their deleterious effects through a number of mechanisms of action including microbial activity and immune reaction.

    The possible etiology of restorative driven peri-implant disease and the little knowledge that exists in the dental industry about the type, quantity and the route by which bone loss takes place around implants will be examined.

    Dr Walton will focus on the importance of screw retention and the appropriate prosthetic planning which must be performed to ensure it can be delivered successfully. We will also discuss alternative options when screw retention does not seem possible including angulated screw channel (ASC) abutments, techniques for reducing excess cement and the impact of immediate implants.


    Dr. Walton earned his Doctor of Dental Surgery degree from the University of Toronto. Prior to pursuit of his graduate dental studies, he completed externships at the University of Michigan and overseas at King's College School of Medicine and Dentistry in London, England.

    Dr. Walton completed his Master’s degree in Periodontology at the Harvard School of Dental Medicine. His practice includes conventional periodontal therapy for tooth maintenance, periodontal plastics as well as advanced regenerative techniques and implant rehabilitation. His current area of focus lies in immediate implant placement and temporization for both single, multiple and full arch reconstruction.

    Dr. Walton is a Fellow of the Royal College of Canada and a US Board Certified Diplomate of Periodontics and Implantolgy. He maintains an affiliation to University of Toronto, and Harvard as a clinical instructor, international research fellow, admissions committee member and active alumnus.

    Dr. Stephane Reinhardt

    Lecture Synopsis

    Clear aligners are not the future anymore: they are actual digital dentistry. It is the fastest-growing type of treatment in dentistry. Yet, a lot of dentists, even though they have the intention of incorporating these incredible tools in their practice, face some barriers that prevent them from “making the move”. Since patients ask for this treatment and that competition is increasing, it is crucial to learn and understand what can be done with clear aligners, but most importantly, gain the necessary confidence to use them and apply the basic principles that will keep you out of trouble. Anything can be done with clear aligners, but what is essential is understanding the parameters and know how to select your cases.

    In this lecture, Dr. Stephane Reinhardt will share his knowledge and passion in an educational, entertaining way where he will review the basic principles of clear aligners, how to select your cases to stay out of trouble and share tips and tricks to make your life easier using clear aligners in your practice.  

    Learning objectives:

    • Understand the basic principles of clear aligner tooth movement
    • Understand the parameters of clear aligners
    • Know how to select cases to stay out of trouble
    • Have some tips and tricks to help you achieve predictable results with clear aligners
    • Have fun and learn at the same time!

    Dr. Robert Winter

    Outcome-Based Treatment:  An Interdisciplinary Approach to Patient-Centered Outcomes


      A comprehensive assessment establishing the diagnosis and development of the treatment plan, including possible alternatives, is essential to achieving an outcome that develops appropriate occlusion and function, and meets the esthetic expectations of the patient.


      A facially generated treatment-planning model will be presented.  This model will be used to guide the development of the treatment plan and determine the procedures necessary to meet the desired outcomes of the case.


      Preservation of tooth structure should be the primary goal when restoring natural teeth. Understanding the esthetic expectation of the patient and the functional stresses that will be placed on the restorative material are paramount in establishing a predictable and longer term outcome.  Clinical techniques and material options will be presented for indirect restorations to accomplish treatment goals and achieve patient-centered outcomes.

      Learning objectives:


    • ·      Treatment plan to achieve esthetic and functional outcomes.
    • ·      Understand the rationale for outcome-based preparation design.
    • ·      Update restorative materials for veneers and crowns.
    • ·      How to collaborate with your laboratory to achieve the desired outcome.
