                 Snoring to Sleep Apnea - Why Dentistry? And Why Now?

                 Are you one of the 40 million Americans affected by sleep
                 disorders? Did you know your dentist may be an integral part
                 of helping you sleep soundly again? Dr. Michael Simmons is an
                 expert in sleep disorders with post-doctoral work from UCLA.
                 Dr. Simmons' presentation will address normal and abnormal
                 sleep physiology, screening and diagnosis of disorders and
                 current approaches and therapies that dentists can provide.

                 Sports Dentistry and Trauma

                 Injuries are a part of almost every sport, but injuries to
                 your mouth and teeth can be especially traumatic because of
                 how sensitive and crucial the region is to the human body.
                 Dr. Howard Chi of Stockton specializes in injuries of this
                 nature and is an expert in sports dentistry. His presentation
                 will cover the role and responsibility of being a dentist for
                 a sports team and how to handle the trauma when a player
                 sustains an injury.

                 Thursday, September 10, 2009, 1:30 p.m. to 3:00 p.m.
                 Moscone West Convention Center, Room 3014/16

                 CSI San Francisco: Forensic Dentistry - Who Was This?

                 Dentistry plays a key, yet many times overlooked, role in
                 solving some of California's worst crimes. This lecture
                 explains forensic dental identification procedures from A to
                 Z and addresses how dentists work along side investigators in
                 these difficult cases. Offered by four of the industry's
                 leading forensic dentists, the fast paced seminar covers
                 actual casework to illustrate the value of forensic dentistry
                 in the judicial system and criminal investigations.

                 The California Department of Justice will also be on hand to
                 speak about what happens when cases can't be solved through
                 conventional forensic identification means.

                 Saturday, September 12, 2009, 10:00 a.m. to 12:30 p.m.
                 Moscone West Convention Center, Room 3022/24
