What a challenge our profession and industry faced last year amid the COVID-19 pandemic. They say that necessity is the mother of invention, and in our case at The Dawson Academy, this necessity was a quick pivot to be sure we could meet your 2020 continuing education needs.
In this webinar, you will witness the incredible results you can achieve while utilizing proper techniques – guiding you to start performing these periodontal procedures by yourself without sending the patient to a specialist.
Foundational periodontal surgery knowledge is essential for every dentist practicing simple procedures. When you extract teeth, you’ll know how to manage the extraction socket and how to place an immediate implant. When treating deep caries, discover how to lengthen surgical crowns in order to place restorations. Additionally, practicing soft tissue grafts around implants and teeth will steer you in the right direction.
- How-to manage extraction sockets
- Discuss procedures for successful immediate implant placements
- Review key steps for surgical crown lengthening
- Create best practices for soft tissue grafting

In this webinar, discover many techniques and materials for predictable posterior restorations.
Posterior Composites can be challenging even to a seasoned clinician. Of those, the class II composite continues to be the most challenging of them all. During this presentation, some tips and techniques to improve outcomes will be shared and correlated with the current literature.
- Discuss challenges in obtaining a successful Class II restoration
- Review materials for treating interproximal cavitated carious lesions
- Describe techniques to improve Class II restorations

In this webinar you will learn the fundamentals of diagnosing and treatment planning a full arch implant-supported prosthesis.
"I wanted to share a bigger picture of the steps we take to treatment plan these cases. You will pay a big price for this on the restorative side if you don't get it right." - John C. Cranham, DDS
Determine what specific data is needed to correct incisal edge position, incisal planes, occlusal planes and vertical dimension.
Compare how occlusal design on all on 4/5/6 cases differs from occlusal design on teeth.
Outline protocols to visualize optimum implant placement, based on tooth position.
Identify the different software options available to properly plan these cases.

This webinar highlights the connection and studies between UARS and TMD that relate to breathing disordered sleep. Dr. Witt Wilkerson shares valuable insights gained from several years of intense study of these overlapping subjects.
During this webinar, you will recognize the connections between Airway and TMD by studying the subjects side by side. TMD is a basket syndrome with common symptoms such as sore muscles/joints, bruxism, headaches, and chronic fatigue. Interestingly, those are exactly the same symptoms experienced by many patients with the medical diagnosis of Upper Airway Resistance Syndrome (UARS), a problem related to breathing disordered sleep.
- Implement use of the IDM Checklist for clinical use
- Describe the relationship of disordered breathing and TMD
- Identify the common symptoms associated the TMD
This webinar highlights how to use adhesive techniques in daily practice and what kind of material is best to achieve long term success for a single tooth restoration as well as complex cases.
During this webinar, you will recognize more situations where adhesive techniques can be utilized and realize the benefits for you and your patients. When to use a direct or indirect approach will also be discussed. Dr. Stankowska will show different, less invasive solutions than a crown for the common problem of large cavities. You will be motivated to do more minimally invasive dentistry and inspired by Dorota’s passion for dentistry.
- Determine the best materials for long term success
Describe the best techniques for long term success
Compare minimally invasive treatment with direct and indirect approaches
Explain how to use adhesive techniques in front and back teeth
We, as a profession, are individually and collectively facing a strategic shift to our core economic, clinical, and philosophical value systems.
The digital transformation continues at a Moore’s Law pace forcing every individual dentist to navigate the balance between what we know and where we want to go. Today, creative critical thinking affects our self-esteem, judgement, chosen path, new skills, economic ROI and fuels our desire to reach our full potential for our family, staff, and patients. Dr. Dawson and the master teachers provided the foundation for every dentist to succeed professionally. Don’t think outside of your current box, just get a new expanded box. The future of dentistry has never been more exciting or challenging.
- Explore how to capitalize on your inner creative values
- Discuss the true definitions of digital and technology
- Summarize why the master teachers guide your future
- Formulate technological decisions based on your vision
- Ascertain how to think about occlusion, TMD, pain, and prosthetics in 2020
Many dentists spend decades wandering through the desert of insurance based “standard of care.” Most know there is a better way, but struggle with the WHY! Dr. Hess explains the path to a 'better way' for your patients and yourself.
- Explain how a complete examination can unlock unlimited potential in your practice
- Recall the keys to predictable results and higher practice satisfaction
- Compare the difference between treating symptoms and treating the cause
Why do our patients brux, wear their teeth, have sore muscles, headaches, malocclusions, periodontal disease, abfractions and gastric reflux? Let’s take a medical look at the world of Dentistry for answers!
During this webinar, we look at placing implants in single sites to more challenging cases involving multiple implant restorations and grafting to help build a better foundation for long-term success.
Since many of our patients cannot afford, or are unable to go through, the surgeries for implants, it is important to design a well-fitting removable partial denture that actually strengthens the teeth as the teeth support the partial. Using the Dawson concepts and principles of Complete Dentistry, there are three key components that must be understood.
- Know the 3 key components of removable partial denture (RPD) design
- Be able to design various RDP’s
- Sequence the steps to completing a RPD
