#403- How Many Felonies Did You Commit Today
This course has no additional fee.
Theresa Sheppard,RDA Oral Care Specialist
To protect the practice and provider from audit, lawsuit and risk of incarceration, patient records must be documented thoroughly to meet the standard of care.  This course can be  lecture only or an interactive workshop designed for the dentist and the entire team. Attendees will learn the skills necessary for achieving diagnostic excellence, how coding incorrectly can put both your practice and license at risk, coding for legitimate reimbursement and protecting the practice through proper documentation.  
Attendees will gain the understanding and skills required to protect their clinical and financial integrity of the practice and bring peace of mind. 
Program Objectives:  •Sharpen communications skills — words matter: say what you mean to say •Understand aspects of risk management •Explore how the patient could be better served while protecting the integrity of the practice •Discover that healthcare fraud does not have to be intentional to be prosecuted •Learn how proper diagnostics and documentation will help keep you out of court •Recognize the significance of comprehensive diagnostic information •Find out which patients are “keepers”, and who’s not


As dental professionals we set our personal bar very high, always making our number one priority to exceed the standard of care. Lack of training is a dangerous way to do business - it can lead to financial and professional devastation. No matter the length of time team members may have been performing clinical or administrative duties, without proper training the practice and providers are at risk. Theresa Sheppard’s presentations provide the tools and systems necessary to become skilled in all aspects of clinical and administrative practices, risk management and patient/practice protection. 
Her passion for dentistry and love of teaching merged when she became the Owner and Director of Career Express Dental Assisting School, as well as being an instructor for the California Radiation Safety Course. Theresa is a Registered Dental Assistant with experience in all clinical and management aspects of the dental office. This, coupled with her extensive hands-on, front lines experience of over 35 years, uniquely qualifies her to train dental teams. 
Theresa utilizes experiential learning techniques and a workshop environment to ensure participants are empowered and able to implement the learning when returning to the office.

#602 - HIPAA Compliance and Computer Network Support 

John A Zanazzi


There are many different IT vendors and compliance experts that say they will help your dental practice to move towards HIPAA compliance. Most of these vendors charge a premium price tag but do not understand the Privacy and Administrative areas of HIPAA.  Or if they do they don’t understand the IT part of your network. When done correctly, HIPAA compliance should not be any more expensive than managed service support. Because compliance risk actions are added before any network changes, you will have lessened risk of a privacy breach or ransomware with the result HIPAA compliance.  And your network runs better. This Lecture will help you choose the correct HIT consultant at the right price without comprising HIPAA compliance or network performance. Remember it is possible for your network to be HIPAA compliant at a reasonable cost.


In this lecture you will learn:
•   11 Inaccurate Ways Dentists believe they are complying with HIPAA
•   The 10 Most common HIPAA violations 
•   10 Myths of a Security Risk Analysis

John A Zanazzi has worked in the computer industry and Medical Health Information Technology for 23 years. John has an AAS in Networking System Administration from Mesa Community College, and an AAS in Cisco Technology from Gateway Community College. John also has a bachelor’s degree in CIS from Excelsior College and a Master’s Degree from Northern Arizona University. John has been a computer instructor for the past 14 years for the Maricopa Community College District and was the HIT director at the college. He is the author of the book, The Smart Dentist's Guide to HIPAA and Computer Network Support (on amazon) and he has authored a Computer security class for the HIT program at UCSD.

#303- How Many Felonies Did You Commit Today
This course has no additional fee.
Theresa Sheppard,RDA Oral Care Specialist
To protect the practice and provider from audit, lawsuit and risk of incarceration, patient records must be documented thoroughly to meet the standard of care.  This course can be  lecture only or an interactive workshop designed for the dentist and the entire team. Attendees will learn the skills necessary for achieving diagnostic excellence, how coding incorrectly can put both your practice and license at risk, coding for legitimate reimbursement and protecting the practice through proper documentation.  
Attendees will gain the understanding and skills required to protect their clinical and financial integrity of the practice and bring peace of mind. 
Program Objectives:  •Sharpen communications skills — words matter: say what you mean to say •Understand aspects of risk management •Explore how the patient could be better served while protecting the integrity of the practice •Discover that healthcare fraud does not have to be intentional to be prosecuted •Learn how proper diagnostics and documentation will help keep you out of court •Recognize the significance of comprehensive diagnostic information •Find out which patients are “keepers”, and who’s not


As dental professionals we set our personal bar very high, always making our number one priority to exceed the standard of care. Lack of training is a dangerous way to do business - it can lead to financial and professional devastation. No matter the length of time team members may have been performing clinical or administrative duties, without proper training the practice and providers are at risk. Theresa Sheppard’s presentations provide the tools and systems necessary to become skilled in all aspects of clinical and administrative practices, risk management and patient/practice protection. 
Her passion for dentistry and love of teaching merged when she became the Owner and Director of Career Express Dental Assisting School, as well as being an instructor for the California Radiation Safety Course. Theresa is a Registered Dental Assistant with experience in all clinical and management aspects of the dental office. This, coupled with her extensive hands-on, front lines experience of over 35 years, uniquely qualifies her to train dental teams. 
Theresa utilizes experiential learning techniques and a workshop environment to ensure participants are empowered and able to implement the learning when returning to the office.

#404- The Oral-Systemic Disease Paradox
This course has no additional fee.
William Nordquist DMD MS
Debate within the medical community as to whether periodontal disease causes systemic disease has been complicated by disagreement within the dental community itself. The question concerning “cause and effect” between oral and systemic disease is stalwartly contested. Some studies show the presence of oral bacterial DNA whereas others do not. One might ask, ”Why is there so much conflicting data concerning this seemly simple question?”
This lecture will show “cause and effect” concerning the relationship between periodontal disease and systemic disease. However, it will also present the paradox why periodontal treatment of has little to no effect on the systemic disease process itself, such as diabetes and Alzheimer’s disease, once established. Understanding the chronic disease progression and life-cycles of the pathogens causing the disease reveals strategies to suppress and reverse the disease process, plus delivers a more rational approach to treating periodontal disease to achieve a long-term cure.  ​

#503 - Mouth-Body Connection: The How & Now of What You Can Do to Stop the Spread of Deadly Dental Bacteria

Theresa Sheppard,RDA Oral Care Specialist

​I customize every presentation to the audience level, specialty, practice, or care giving environment. 
And every talk has just the right mix of cited research, real world examples and practical ways you can help your patients dramatically improve both their dental and overall health. 
Your colleagues come away educated, energized and equipped with what they can specifically do to have significant impact on their patients’ oral and overall health – ultimately restoring wellness and saving lives. 


Program Objectives:
•Recognize the various signs of deadly bacteria not only existing in a patient’s mouth, but how it could be dangerously spreading, impacting or aggravating other diseases. Hint: bleeding gums are not normal EVER. •Understand the proven pathway of how bacteria gets into the bloodstream, where it then causes infection, injury and inflammation in other parts of the body. •Review your patient’s health history for existing conditions such as cardiac disease, diabetes, cancer, and others that have been shown to start or be aggravated by bacteria originating in the mouth. •Take specific action and create a treatment plan that addresses the spread of deadly bacteria, preventing, correcting or reversing its devastating impact on the body. •Simply explain the mouth-body connection to your patients so they are more likely to comply with your treatment plan to reverse impact sooner

#103 - HIPAA: Highlights, Hoopla and Hooey
This course has no additional fee.
Theresa Sheppard,RDA Oral Care Specialist
As our practices become more technologically advanced, the risk of patient privacy violation increases.  We’ve all heard about HIPAA, and it has become a big part of our daily lives. Still, many practices do not understand the new regulations and believe they are compliant if they have a patient sign a Notice of Privacy Act. The new HIPAA Omnibus Rule became effective March 26, 2013.  Dental practices are required to be compliant (as of September 23, 2013).   
Putting together a comprehensive HIPAA protocol and policy program can be a daunting task. In this course, learn the required changes to the Notice of Privacy Practices Form, the financial implications for willful neglect, why a daily data backup is no longer enough, and the communications that must not be sent via email or text. Gain a better understanding of the steps required to achieve compliance and protect both patients and the practice.   
HIPAA  Program Objectives:  •Review the steps to mandatory HIPAA compliance •Discover what is included in comprehensive risk analysis •Determine what functions the Privacy Officer, Security Officer, and Technology Officer are responsible for •Learn who Covered Entities and Business Associates are and why it matters •Recognize the new required changes to the Notice of Privacy Practices Form •Know who you must have a Business Associate Agreement with •Understand breach notification: who must be notified and when •Identify how to avoid fines that could place the practice in financial ruin •Acquire the skills to manage and resolve privacy complaints
