A Message from the Chair of the Banff Organizing Committee
Ah, Banff… What can we say that the natural splendor of this place doesn’t already proclaim with far more eloquence? These are the Rockies – we’re getting together in their heart – which in many ways is my own heart as well. I grew up here – well, not right here, but all around here. My winters were spent in these mountains – skiing, snowshoeing, hiking, just breathing in that cool, clean air. My summers likewise – hiking, biking, golfing – amidst the wildlife, the wilderness and the monument that is this place. Nowadays, if I’m not at my practice, or in Guatemala, I’m in Bragg Creek – at my home – my tiny mountain oasis amid this great oasis.
I am awed by this place, as I always have been. Indeed, we should all be awed by it. It’s the perfect backdrop to the business we have at hand; business that is – that equals in significance to our surroundings. And we have much to accomplish. But then, that is what we do – we accomplish. As individuals, as professionals, as healers, as philanthropists and entrepreneurs – ours is the business of doing. Together, we can do more… we can do better – we can be better. I for one can’t wait to see what we stand to learn, inspire, and of course, accomplish as a group.
With that in mind, I look forward to welcoming each and every one of you to Banff, to this conference, and to this place that is so dear to me. See you soon!
Brad Krusky, Chair, Local Organizing Committee
Banff is a town within Banff National Park in Alberta, Canada. It is located in Alberta’s Rockies along the Trans-Canada Highway, approximately 126 km (78 mi) west of Calgary and 58 km (36 mi) east of Lake Louise. At an elevation of 1,400 m (4,600 ft) to 1,630 m (5,350 ft), Banff is the community with the second highest elevation in Alberta after Lake Louise.
Banff was first settled in the 1880s, after the transcontinental railway was built through the Bow Valley. In 1883, three Canadian Pacific Railway workers stumbled upon a series of natural hot springs on the side of Sulphur Mountain. In 1885, Canada established a federal reserve of 26 sq. km (10 sq mi) around the Cave and Basin hot springs, and began promoting the area as an international resort and spa as a way to support the new railway. In 1887, the reserve area was named “Rocky Mountain Park”. This was the beginning of Canada’s National Park system.
The area was named Banff in 1884 by George Stephen, President of the Canadian Pacific Railway, recalling his birthplace in Banff, Scotland. The Canadian Pacific built a series of grand hotels along the rail line and advertised the Banff Springs Hotel as an international tourist resort.
Banff is a resort town and one of Canada’s most popular tourist destinations. Known for its mountainous surroundings and hot springs, it is a destination for outdoor sports and features extensive hiking, biking, scrambling and skiing destinations within the area. Sunshine Village, Ski Norquay and Lake Louise Mountain Resort are the three nearby ski resorts located within the national park. (Source: Wikipedia)

This course will discuss the early diagnosis of tooth demineralization, focusing on the use of quantitative light fluorescence (QLF). Intervention with fluoride (including fluoride varnish), silver diamine fluoride, glass ionomer surface protectants, sealants and minimally invasive products and procedures will be presented. Risk assessment utilization in decision-making for restorative care will be discussed and related to recommendations made by the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry for restorative dentistry care in children.
At the conclusion of the course, participants will:
• be exposed to early diagnosis of enamel demineralization and understand preventive regimens available, as well as appropriate intervention with these agents, using minimally invasive techniques.
• have an understanding of the clinical utilization of traditional, photopolymerized glass ionomer cements and compomers, including indications and contraindications.
• be exposed to the newer commercially available resin-based composites and dentin bonding resins, understand their mechanism of action and visualize clinical utilization of these materials.
• understand pediatric dentistry standards of care using risk assessment in decision making.
