46th Annual Arthur H. Merritt Memorial Lectureship: Inflammation, Periodontitis and the Link to Systemic Diseases

46th Annual Arthur H. Merritt Memorial Lectureship: Inflammation, Periodontitis and the Link to Systemic Diseases
Event on 2017-08-05 07:30:00
46th Annual Arthur H. Merritt Memorial Lectureship Inflammation, Periodontitis and the Link to Systemic Diseases Course Summary:   Periodontitis is an infectious inflammatory disease; that is, a disease initiated by bacteria that has inflammatory destruction of tissues at the heart of its pathogenesis.  Uncontrolled inflammation in infectious inflammatory diseases results from over-active stimulation and a failure to resolve inflammation.  Resolution of inflammation is an active process mediated by endogenously produced lipid molecules that orchestrate a return to tissue homeostasis.   These resolving molecules, called lipoxins and resolvins, are eicosanoids, the same class of molecule as prostaglandins and leukotrienes that actively regulate the resolution of acute inflammation.  These small lipid molecules act through specific receptors on inflammatory cells.  Lipoxins and resolvins have been shown to have significant impact in inflammatory diseases, such as periodontitis, type 2 diabetes and cardiovascular diseases.  The new understanding of active resolution of inflammation has the potential to completely change how we approach periodontal therapy.  Lipoxins and resolvins have been demonstrated to promote regeneration of bone lost to disease and to prevent inflammatory bone loss in animals.   The potential for therapeutic benefit of lipoxins and resolvins in clinical periodontal regeneration is being examined. In addition to the emergence of new surgical and non-surgical, medical therapies for periodontal diseases, recent studies have suggested a relationship between oral infection, in particular periodontal disease, and systemic diseases.  Epidemiologic studies have implicated periodontal disease as a risk factor for the development of cardiovascular disease and stroke, and a risk factor for pre-term low birth weight babies in pregnant women.  In addition, studies in diabetics have revealed that untreated periodontal disease can lead to diabetic complications and have a direct impact on glycemic control.  As our understanding of pathways of inflammation has matured, a better understanding of the molecular basis of inflammation has emerged.  This presentation will review inflammation in the context of periodontal disease and its treatment, including regeneration, and the risk for systemic disease.  The strengths and weaknesses of studies reported on these topics will be examined.  The potential for modification of resolution pathways for the prevention and treatment of periodontal diseases will be discussed in detail.   More importantly, the potential, as well as real, associations between periodontal diseases and systemic diseases underline the importance of proper diagnosis and treatment of these extremely common oral diseases.  In this lecture, the rationale for additional periodontal medical approaches will be presented and the potential benefits to systemic health will be explored. Course Presenter: Thomas Van Dyke, D.M.D., Ph.D., is Vice President for Clinical and Translational Research, and Director of the Center for Clinical and Translational Research at the Forsyth Institute in Cambridge, MA.  He received his D.D.S. (1973) from Case Western Reserve University; M.S. (1979) from SUNY at Buffalo in Oral Sciences; Periodontics Certificate (1980) from SUNY at Buffalo, and his Ph.D. (1982) from SUNY at Buffalo in Oral Biology.  Dr. Van Dyke received the Balint Orban Memorial Prize for Research in Periodontology (1981).  He is a Diplomate of the American Board of Periodontology (1989), and he received the IADR Award for Basic Research in Periodontology in 2001, the Norton Ross Award for Excellence in Clinical Research in 2002, and the William J. Gies Periodontology Award in 2008.  He serves on the editorial boards of Infection and Immunity, Journal of Periodontology, Journal of Periodontal Research, among others, and he has edited two volumes of Periodontology 2000.  He served as President of the International Association of Periodontology (1997-1999).   Dr. Van Dyke has published 330+ original articles, and numerous abstracts and book chapters.  He is a member of the American/International Association of Dental Research; American Academy of Periodontology; International Academy of Periodontology, American Association for the Advancement of Science, American Society of Microbiology, IADR Periodontal Research Group, American Dental Association, and American Association of Immunologists.  His research interests are the structural and functional relationship of abnormalities of the inflammatory process with focus on phagocytic cells and microorganisms, in the etiology and pathogenesis of periodontal and other infectious inflammatory diseases.  Dr. Van Dyke is also involved in clinical research and clinical trials focusing on drug treatment for periodontal disease, local delivery systems, and clinical trials of anti-plaque/anti-gingivitis agents, local anesthetics, regenerative periodontal therapies and early onset periodontitis.  The remainder of his time is devoted to training of fellows and administration. Dr. Van Dyke is arguably the most renowned periodontal clinician scientist today.  He is best known for his work on the pathogenesis of juvenile periodontal diseases, resolution of inflammation in neutrophil biology, and clinical research.  Date: Saturday, August 5, 2017 Time:  7:30 am – 8:15 am – Registration/continental breakfast 8:15 am – 1:30 pm – Presentation Location: Beasley Auditorium, Baylor University Medical Center Questions:  Please contact:  DRoberts@tamhsc.edu or call 1-214-828-8140 Credit: 5.25 Hours Lecture AGD Codes: 490 Periodontics Continental breakfast/Late Morning refreshments     Course Topics and Objectives: Review the relationship between inflammation and bone loss in periodontitis Discuss the data relating to the mechanism of action of periodontal regeneration Discuss potential modifications of treatment regimens for the patient with periodontitis in need of regenerative therapy Review the relationship between periodontitis and systemic disease Discuss the data relating to the mechanism of action of the periodontitis/systemic interaction Discuss potential modifications of treatment regimens for the patient with periodontitis and complicating systemic disease.   Arthur H. Merritt, D.D.S. (1870- 1961) was one of the early pioneers in periodontics. In his later years, he was known as the “Dean of Periodontists.” His office was located on 5th Avenue in New York for many years. Dr. Merritt was one of the organizers of the American Academy of Periodontology and was very proud of the fact that he had attended every meeting but one, since its organization. In 1925 he served as President of the Academy. He was author of one of the first textbooks on periodontology and wrote many articles that have been published in that field. He taught periodontics at New York University School of Dentistry. Dr. Merritt was the first Diplomate of the American Board of Periodontology and served on the Board for several years. He received the Fauchard Medal in 1932, awarded by Dental Survey for Advancing the Field of Preventive Dentistry. Dr. Merritt visited Texas A&M College of Dentistry annually for many years and was a strong supporter of the Texas A&M training concept.   The ARTHUR H. MERRITT MEMORIAL LECTURESHIP in Periodontics was established at Texas A&M College of Dentistry in December 1971. This lectureship in 2017 marks the 46th annual memorial lectureship.  Because of the thoughtfulness and generosity of Dr. and Mrs. Merritt, graduate and undergraduate students of the college and members of the Southwest Society of Periodontists are privileged to share in the wisdom and knowledge of an outstanding lecturer in the field of periodontology.   The Arthur H.

STANDUPLD TO HOST SECOND ANNUAL “CELEBRATION DAY” FOR STUDENTS WITH LEARNING DIFFERENCES

North Texas Students, Parents, And Educators Unite to Celebrate Learning Differences And Share Experiences

(Dallas) February 13, 2017 – What a difference, a difference makes.
StandUpLD, a Dallas-based nonprofit network for parents, educators, and students with learning differences, will hold its second annual conference on Feb. 25 from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. at the Dr Pepper Ballpark in Frisco. Programs will be in both English and Spanish. General admission is , and student admission is .

Keynote speaker John Rodrigues, author of “High School Dropout to Harvard,” will kick off the day. Rodrigues is an advocate, educator, ice sculptor, and content specialist for the Federal Department of Education. Entertainment Weekly has described him as “an uplifting, rebellious voice who will strike a chord with anyone who has ever had a hard time marching in step in a culture of conformity.” “Being You,” a feature film about how Rodrigues overcame dyslexia, will be shown on the ballpark lawn.

In keeping with StandUpLD’s mission to support and inspire students, the StandUpLD venue will highlight its youth during the afternoon event, “StandUp, SpeakOut!” Local teens will work with adults and other mentors to share how their journey with a learning challenge has shaped them.
Victoria “Tori” Rash, Miss Teen South Texas International 2017, is the student keynote speaker for the second year in a row. Rash has autism, dyslexia, dysgraphia, and sensory disorders. She founded “Tori’s Charity Treats” to support early identification of and intervention for learning differences.

“I walked away from this conference inspired. Not only from the keynote speaker, but hearing the students share their own personal journeys with dyslexia. We don’t have many conferences like this where the youth are as much a part of the conference as the adults. It’s wonderful to have this unique conference in Dallas!” said G-g Shryer, an educator from the June Shelton School.

Conference programming will give parents the opportunity to meet and greet with local learning experts and hear about the latest assistive technology for supporting students with learning differences. Continuing Education Unit and Academic Language Therapy Association credits are available for educators.

2016 CADA Annual Dinner

2016 CADA Annual Dinner
Event on 2016-10-05 18:00:00
About the speaker: Brian Cuban is the younger brother of Dallas Mavericks owner, Mark Cuban. The relationship with fame and fortune, however, has not always been beneficial to Brian. Over the years, Brian has struggled with addiction to alcohol and cocaine, body image, depression, suicide and steroid abuse. Brian is the author of two books: Shattered Image was released in 2013 and delves into Brian’s struggle with eating disorders and body dysmorphic disorder; and The Addicted Lawyer, to be released later this year. In his new book, Brian discusses his “climb to the apex of the addiction roller coaster.” He has been in recovery since April 8, 2007 and tells his story worldwide. His addiction was partly a result of two decades of battling an eating disorder. Brian hopes that by sharing his struggles with others that he can help them get through it, no matter what it is. About CADA:The Council on Alcoholism and Drug Abuse of Northwest Louisiana (CADA) is the leading resource on alcoholism and drug abuse and provides affordable, effective treatment to those with addiction. We are only 1 of 5 programs in the state that accepts pregnant women. As a non-profit organization, it is part of our mission to educate, counsel, and treat those of all ages who suffer from alcoholism and other addictive diseases regardless of their ability to pay.
