A Special Note of Welcome to Meeting Planners

Casey Hein & Associates, LLC is an approved AGD PACE Provider and offers to provide CE credit for organizations that need to accredit courses.

I understand how challenging it can be to plan and host well-attended, profitable programs, especially during this unprecedented time of change. From my years as an international speaker and Director of Continuing Dental Education at a major university, I know firsthand, that simply reciting science from the podium is not enough to engage learners. We must help oral healthcare providers learn how to implement science with practical approaches that make a real difference in patient outcomes, as soon as we get back to the office.

My goal is to support you in ways that make your job easier and provide the caliber of educational programming that validates your expertise in bringing about extraordinarily successful events. This includes social media marketing before, during and after the event, and working alongside you to determine the specific interests of your audience to personalize and optimize the learning experience.

I hope you’ll take a few minutes to browse through some of my most popular courses, and chat with meeting planners I’ve worked with in the past. In high demand are my courses that empower oral healthcare providers to deliver medical testing/screening and other primary care services, which have been traditionally offered by physicians and nurses.

With the pandemic, every aspect of our personal and professional lives is in a state of transformation. More than ever before, we must be light on our feet to respond to the need for fluid continuing dental education. Live webinars and other virtual programs I’ve given at recent major conferences, have had overwhelming attendance, with great reviews. Whether live, face-to-face meetings or virtual events, I would be honored to help you navigate these tricky waters to achieve the kind of learning experience that sets a new standard for success.

Please let me know how I can help.

The Awakening: Depression in Us and in our Patients-thumbnail

This course begins with a brief overview of the most common types of depression and associated risk factors. The PHQ-2 tool will be introduced to provide a simple way to preliminarily screen for depression. Complications common to patients with depression, homecare regimens for their unique dental needs, and key messages for patient education will be discussed. We’ll also tackle the ‘elephant in the room’― depression in members of the dental team. We must care for ourselves before we can care for our patients. Please join us for this important and long overdue course.

Audience: Dentists, dental hygienists, dental assistants, front desk staff
Length: 2 – 3 hours

Chairside Glucose Testing: What’s in a Finger-Stick?

Because oral problems are among the earliest signs of diabetes, the dental office often becomes patients’ point-of-entry into the medical system. Dentists and dental hygienists are uniquely positioned to identify patients who have diabetes or prediabetes, monitor blood sugar and reinforce recommendations for diabetes self-care.

Audience: Dentists, dental Hygienists and dental assistants
Length: 2-3 hours

Beyond the Tonsils: Dentists, Dental Hygienists as Primary Care Providers

Because oral problems are among the earliest signs of diabetes, the dental office often becomes patients’ point-of-entry into the medical system. Dentists and dental hygienists are uniquely positioned to identify patients who have diabetes or prediabetes, monitor blood sugar and reinforce recommendations for diabetes self-care.

Audience: Dentists, dental Hygienists and dental assistants

Rethinking the Significance of Periodontal-Systemic Links and Building Dental-Medical Collaboration

This course empowers dental and medical practitioners to integrate periodontal-systemic science into everyday patient care with ease and confidence. The program also provides a template for jump-starting cross-disciplinary healthcare collaboration and helps the dental team reframe the “check-up” and “cleaning” appointment.

Audience: Dentists, dental hygienists, dental assistants, business staff
Length: Full-Day Session
Alternative Format: 4 hour program (no working lunch): Case studies are distributed before the program begins. During the final hour of the program, participants have the opportunity to weigh in on how they would manage various cases associated with periodontal-systemic risk.

Periodontal-Systemic Links: The Case for Early Intervention of Periodontal Disease​

This course explores the significance of periodontal infection in increasing systemic inflammation, and provides overviews of the biological mechanisms that link periodontal disease to a constellation of inflammatory driven diseases and conditions. Casey also suggests a number of hurdles and conditioned assumptions that hijack diagnosis of periodontal disease and patient acceptance of proposed treatment, with recommendations on how to overcome these challenges.

Audience: Dentists, dental hygienists, dental assistants, business staff
Length: 3 hours

A Best-Practice Approach to Target Diabetes in Dental Patients

This course provides an empowering vision for dentists and dental hygienists in screening for diabetes, pre-diabetes, obesity, and Metabolic Syndrome and offers practical ideas for jumpstarting collaborative case management with the medical community. Course participants will develop greater confidence in caring for diabetic patients and establish easily implementable clinical protocols to better address the needs of patients with diabetes.

Audience: Dentists, dental hygienists, dental assistants, business staff
Length: 3-4 hours

Targeting Obesity in Dental Patients

This energizing, revelatory course empowers the dental team to identify patients at risk for overweight and obesity, overcome the difficulty in discussing weight, build collaboration with the medical community to cross-screen and cross-refer patients at risk for obesity and periodontal disease, and educate dental patients about the role of obesity in increasing risk for periodontal disease.

Audience: Dentists, dental hygienists, dental assistants, business staff
Length: 3 hours

The Threat of Periodontal Disease in Pregnancy

Oral healthcare providers who care for women of child-bearing age should be aware of the evidence that supports the possibility that periodontal infection may be a modifiable risk factor for adverse pregnancy outcomes. This case-based course empowers oral healthcare providers to incorporate into everyday patient care evidence of the relationship between periodontal disease and risk for adverse pregnancy outcomes.

Audience: Dentists, dental hygienists, dental assistants, business staff
Length: 3 hours

Preventive Cardiology in Dentistry

This course helps oral healthcare professionals to make sense of the research and consensus opinions on the links between periodontitis and cardiovascular disease. The program empowers participants to incorporate the latest evidence on the relationship of periodontal and CVD, screen patients to identify those who may be at risk for CVD, and build collaborative relationships with non-dental healthcare providers to increase point-of-care screening and cross referral of patients at risk for CVD and periodontal disease.

Audience: Dentists, dental hygienists, dental assistants, business staff
Length: 3-4 hours

Dental-Medical Collaboration in Caring for the Oral-Systemic Health of Nursing Home Residents

Given the prevalence of periodontal disease and caries in older populations (most of which goes undiagnosed), it is reasonable to assume that most people entering nursing homes have untreated periodontal disease and decayed teeth. This course proposes protocols for nursing homes that fosters a collaborative practice arrangement between nurses and dental hygienists.

Audience: Dental hygienists, dentists, nurses, physicians, and other nondental healthcare providers
Length: 2-3 hours
