Topic: Introduction to STEP™ Systematic Treatment Evaluation Protocol (1 Credit)

Program Description: When patients present for implant therapy with ideal tooth position, great care must be taken to maintain or sometimes rebuild tissue for optimal aesthetic outcomes. Many times, however, patients present for treatment with less than ideal tooth position. This program outlines a treatment planning protocol that allows the practitioner to efficiently determine a patient’s treatment options for comprehensive treatment. Case examples will be presented to demonstrate how this protocol can be applied, including one case of a patient presenting for implant therapy with non-ideal aesthetics.

Program Objectives: At the completion of the program, participants should be able to:
• Differentiate between traditional and systematic treatment planning.
• Understand the STEP (Systematic Treatment Evaluation Protocol) sequence.
• Acquire the skills necessary to perform STEP.
• Comprehend the application of the STEP sequence in a treatment planning case example.
