Hear What Attendees are Saying…
“I love the fact that my wife gets to meet the people I talk about, and to understand better why the Academy fuels my passion for dentistry. We had opportunities to relax as a couple and with other couples. The information presented in the courses was cutting edge and informative. The social events were fun and a great opportunity to get to know the spouses of dentists you have seen and gotten to be friends with. I can’t wait until next year!”
“Having the opportunity to interact with faculty, lab technicians and my conversation with Dr. Dawson himself [was my favorite part of this year’s Retreat]… Attending this conference has helped reinvigorate my passion for dentistry and WHY I do what I do.”
“The program this year was truly outstanding: I will always remember this as a truly significant experience in my career.”
“Fellowship [was my favorite part of this year’s retreat]. I find this group of people be both professionally and personally inspiring. High marks to Kelly Verber and Michelle Wolfe for making my wife feel like “one of the gang”. We are already looking forward to next year.”

Esthetic Rehabilitation on Implants or Teeth
Gerard Chiche, DDS
This presentation will outline the management of risk factors in a step-by-step method in order to maximize long-term success of ceramic materials in extensive rehabilitations. Ceramics material selection will be discussed according to esthetics rendition, strength properties and available restorative thickness according to the state of attrition, the severity of the malocclusion and the cause of tooth wear.
- Create a systematic protection strategy for ceramic restorations with medium and high-risk patients.
- Select ceramic materials for optimum esthetics and strength according to the severity of the attrition.
- Use a simplified bonding method for all-ceramic restorations.
Identifying Children At Risk: Hidden Dangers of Snoring and Mouth Breathing
Karen O’Rourke, DDS
We will look at faces and breathing patterns of kids with allergies/asthma and sleep disordered breathing; look at how this affects the child’s growth; and an option to redirect facial growth. The mouth is in the middle of the airway complex, and by raising awareness and working together, dentistry and medicine can improve outcomes for our mutual patients.
At the completion of the course participants will be able to recognize, identify and improve the care of children.
- Recognize the link between dental symptoms and medical illnesses
- Identify growth and development problems in children and learn methods to intervene and prevent long-term health sequelae
- Improve overall patient health by modifying your health history to aid in identification and referral for underlying medical issues.
Study Club Challenge Finalists
The Dawson Study Club Challenge is a case competition to encourage our study members to share cases and recognize those among us who are practicing quality, complete care. The challenge takes place each year during Study Club Day & the Annual Alumni Retreat.
Each contestant will have 5 minutes to present their case. Contestants should outline how they optimized the esthetics and created the 5 requirements of occlusal stability.
The 3 finalists will present their cases at the Dawson Retreat. Attendees will vote on the winner of the annual study club challenge.
