Dr. Levin to Present a Keynote Lecture at the International Federation of Endodontic Associations (IFEA) in Cape Town, SA.

Dr. Levin, Adjunct Professor of Endodontics at the University of Pennsylvania, will present a keynote lecture and pre-congress workshop at the International Federation of Endodontic Associations in Cape Town, SA, 10th World Endodontic Congress.

His pre-congress workshop will highlight limited field of  view CBCT in Endodontics.  “In  endodontics,  the  region  of  interest  is  generally  small  and   pre-­determined,   favoring  the  selection  of  limited  field  of  view  (FOV)  CBCT  scans  with  lower  x-­ radiation  exposure,  smaller  volumes  to  be  interpreted  and  increased  resolution.       All  radiographs  require  careful  and  complete  analysis  because  they  may  contain   findings  that  affect  the  health  of  the  patient. This  hands-­on  program  will  present  a  systematic  method  for  navigating  and   documenting  high  resolution,  limited  FOV  scans  using  multiple  clinical  cases.”

Dr. Levin to speak at the Oregon Dental Conference, 2016

CBCT sagittal view for Oregon Denatl Conference, 2016

Dr. Levin has been invited to lecture at the Oregon Dental Conference to be held in Portland, WA on April 7-9, 2016. Dr. Levin will address the conference on the use of CBCT in Endodontics and will base his program on the current literature. Central to his lecture are the limitations of intraoral radiography: compression of 3D structures, geometric distortion, magnification and the misrepresentation of structures. CBCT allows for the 3D assessment of odontogenic and non-odontogenic lesions, root canal morphology, revision treatment, root and alveolar fractures, resorptive lesions, anatomy prior to surgery and outcomes.

Dr. Levin is Recommended Speaker for American Association of Endodontists and Seattle Study Club

2015-10-29 20.16.25

Dr. Levin has been recognized as a “Recommended Speaker” for the American Association of Endodontists (AAE) on Cone Beam Computed Tomography (CBCT). The AAE Recommended Speakers List ensures that dentists are exposed to evidence-based endodontic education endorsed by the AAE.  The List serves as a resource for dental organizations and schools in programming their national or local continuing education meetings.

The Seattle Study Club also lists Dr. Levin as a recommended speaker for their component study clubs on the use of CBCT in Endodontics.

 

American Association of Endodontists, 2015 Annual Session

2015-05-06-11.09.14-e1444010919121-600x312
Dr. Martin D. Levin lectures at the American Association of Endodontists “To the Point” program.

Dr. Levin presented a “To the Point” lecture at the American Association of Endodontists 2015 Annual Session in Seattle titled “CBCT: A Short Guide to Flatten the Learning Curve.” In this lecture, Dr. Levin discussed the importance of diagnostic radiographs and image-guided treatment in endodontics (root canal therapy). High-resolution CBCT scans now allow three-dimensional assessment of odontogenic and non-odontogenic lesions, root canal morphology, revision treatment, root canal alveolar fractures, resorptive lesions and anatomy prior to surgery. Dr. Levin explained the advantages of CBCT imaging in light of recent research and highlighted the important patient benefits of this technology.

Additionally, on May 8, 2015, Dr. Levin presented “Using a New Biocompatible Polymeric Obturation Material that Expands on Water Sorption: How to Precisely Seal Round and Oval Shaped Canals in Three Dimensions without Compaction.”

Dr. Martin D. Levin is in private practice in Chevy Chase, Maryland and an Adjunct Associate Professor of Endodontics at the University of Pennsylvania. At the University of Pennsylvania, Dr. Levin is currently Chair of the Dean’s Council. He speaks nationally and internationally on advanced imaging technologies such as cone-beam computed tomography (CBCT) and clinical techniques.

In 2010, he served as Co-Chair of the Joint Special Committee on Cone Beam Computed Tomography of the American Association of Endodontists and the American Academy of Oral and Maxillofacial Radiology.  He is a contributor to numerous textbooks and peer-reviewed research publications.

Dr. Levin earned his degree in dental medicine from the University of Pennsylvania in 1972, with honors. After completing his post-doctoral residency in endodontics at the University of Pennsylvania, he became a Diplomate of the American Board of Endodontics, and a member of the College of Diplomates.

Journal of Endodontics Reviewer

Dr. Levin has completed his third term as a member of the Scientific Advisory Board of the Journal of Endodontics. In this capacity, he has joined other panelists to review scientific manuscripts for the journal and provided guidance and approvals for articles submitted for publication. The Journal of Endodontics is edited by Dr. Ken Hargreaves, and is ranked 6th in worldwide dental journal impact ratings (SCImago).

Canadian Academy of Endodontics Annual Meeting

Dr. Levin addressed the Canadian Academy of Endodontics annual meeting in Banff, Canada, on August 28, 2015. He presented a lecture on the CPoint, a new polymeric hydrogel that expands on water sorption to obturate the root canal without compaction.

Ontario Society of Endodontists

Dr. Levin will present an all day lecture on the endodontic applications of cone beam computed tomography at the Ontario Society of Endodontists on November 6, 2015 in Toronto, Canada.

Ontario Society of Endodontics in Toronto, CA

The Ontario Society of Endodontics and the Toronto Academy of Dentistry have invited Dr. Levin to speak on the recent introduction of limited field of view (FOV) high-resolution CBCT, allowing three-dimensional assessment of odontogenic and non-odontogenic lesions, root canal morphology, revision treatment, root and alveolar fractures, resorptive lesions and anatomy prior to surgery. This lecture will highlight the advantages of CBCT imaging in light of recent research demonstrating a significant increase in lesion visualization when compared to periapical radiographs.
