Frank Shallenberger, MD “Melatonin in Medicine and Dentistry”

Learning Objectives:

  3. Melatonin is not a soporific.
  4. There is no negative feedback inhibition with melatonin
  5. Melatonin, which is released into the saliva, has important implications in the oral cavity. To achieve dental implant stability, osseointegration involves a cascade of protein and cell apposition, vascular invasion, bone formation, and maturation. This process may be accelerated by local delivery of growth-promoting factors, as occurs with the topical application of melatonin over the implant surface.

September 10th- The Becoming of a Biological Practice….   Informal Q & A

This will be a Q&A driven lecture. There will be advice on what to buy first, how to convert from a conventional practice, how to handle and hire staff, how to speak with patients and much more. Attending this gathering may be the most important mind organizer and confidence builder for you before you return home to begin anew on Monday morning. Not to be missed by the first time attendees or those who want to continue to build their practice.
