Charles Lekic Chair,
Local Organizing Committee
Winnipeg is the capital and largest city of the province of Manitoba in Canada. It is located near the longitudinal centre of North America, at the confluence of the Red and Assiniboine Rivers, known as “The Forks”.
The city is named after the nearby Lake Winnipeg; the name comes from the Western Cree words for muddy water. The region was a trading centre for aboriginal peoples long before the arrival of Europeans. French traders built the first fort on the site in 1738. A settlement was later founded by the Selkirk settlers of the Red River Colony in 1812, the nucleus of which was incorporated as the City of Winnipeg in 1873. As of 2011, Winnipeg is the seventh most populated municipality in Canada.Being located very far inland, the local climate is extremely seasonal even by Canadian standards with average January lows of around −21 °C and average July highs of 26 °C.
Known as the “Gateway to the West”, Winnipeg is a railway and transportation hub with a diversified economy. This multicultural city hosts numerous annual festivals, including the Festival du Voyageur, the Winnipeg Folk Festival, the Jazz Winnipeg Festival, the Winnipeg Fringe Theatre Festival, and Folklorama. Winnipeg was the first Canadian host of the Pan American Games. It is home to several professional sports franchises, including the Winnipeg Blue Bombers (Football), the Winnipeg Jets (Hockey), and the Winnipeg Goldeyes (baseball). (Source: Wikipedia)
Christopher McCulloch is the Canada Research Chair and Professor and Director of the Matrix Dynamics Group at the University of Toronto. He focusses on the biology of the extracellular matrix and how the matrix regulates cellular responses in wound healing, inflammatory and fibrotic conditions.
Dr. McCulloch is a recognized leader in the field of matrix biology as indicated by continuous funding from the Canadian Institutes of Health Research and other federal agencies in Canada for the last 30 years and the publication of more than 280 peer-reviewed publications in high ranking journals. He has made seminal contributions to the field including the role of the extracellular matrix in in shaping cellular responses of fibroblasts to diabetes and to inflammatory mediators.
Dr. McCulloch has also made important contributions in the structure and regulation of the cytoskeleton and how the cytoskeleton affects signaling processes in fibroblasts and contributes to transmission of biophysical signals that alter cellular signaling pathways.
The lecture will focus on oral tissues in the paediatric patient. How to differentiate between repair and regeneration in oral tissues; the potential for healing in young patients; how to prevent poor wound healing outcomes; and identify new approaches to optimize repair and regeneration in young patients.
At the end of the lecture, participants will be able to answer the following questions:
1. Which oral tissues are likely to be injured or compromised by disease in children?
2. What are the differences between repair and regeneration in these tissues?
3. What is the potential for healing of oral tissues in young patients and what can compromise healing?
4. As therapists, what can we do to prevent poor wound healing outcomes?
5. What are the most promising new approaches to optimize repair and regeneration in young patients?
Dr. Andreasen received his dental degree from the Royal Dental College, Copenhagen, in 1959. He did his postgraduate training in Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery at the University Hospital in Copenhagen, where he now is an associate Professor.
Dr. Andreasen has authored 400 publications and 12 textbooks, covering topics such as dental traumatology, tooth replantation and autotransplantation, tooth eruption and tooth impaction. In relation to traumatology the Textbook and Color Atlas of Dental Traumatology is now in its 5th edition and include 62 contributors.
He founded the interactive Dental Trauma Guide in 2008 which is now being used in 180 countries. It contains information of a series of prospective long term studies of all types of traumatic dental injuries carried out at the trauma center and Department of Oral and Maxillo-Facial Surgery as well as information from 50 animal experiments reproducing treatment scenarios of various dental traumas affecting primary as well as permanent teeth.
Dr. Andreasen has received four honorary doctorate degrees and has been an invited lecturer in 49 countries.
Long-term fate of traumatized primary teeth and new knowledge about pulp healing events in traumatized permanent teeth suffering luxation injuries.
1. Primary tooth traumatic injuries. New knowledge about healing events and healing complications. A survey of 6 fracture types and 6 luxation types.
2. Transferred damage to permanent successors. How big is the risk and can this be predicted knowing the type of trauma and age of the patient?
3. How sensitive to trauma are the various cell components in the developing tooth germ? Can they regenerate after trauma and what happens if this is not the case?
4. Pulpal healing after luxation of permanent teeth is very complex and has been analyzed experimentally and clinically at the Dental Trauma Clinic in Copenhagen, Denmark for more than 50 years. This lecture will demonstrate these varieties of pulpal healing and the long-term risks related to each injury type.
1. What are the possible healing events after trauma in the primary dentition and can they be predicted?
2. How sensitive are the permanent successors to traumas in the primary dentition?
3. Which parts of the developing tooth germ can regenerate after trauma?
4. If pulpal healing takes place after trauma in the permanent dentition, what types of tissue will then be found in the pulpal chamber? Are these healing types stable over time?
Dr. Leland McFadden graduated from the University of Alberta with his DDS in 1978. He is an Associate Professor at the University of Manitoba involved with graduate training in Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery, as well as with the graduate Orthodontic training program.
Dr. McFadden is the past President of the Royal College of Dentists of Canada, the Canadian Association of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeons, the Manitoba Dental Association and the Victoria Hospital Medical Staff. He has served as an Examiner for the Royal College of Dentists of Canada.

“Endodontic Consideration When Treating Complications due to Dental Trauma”
One of the main roles of the pulp tissue is creation of dentin and root maturation. When the pulp tissue dies before complete root formation, conventional endodontic treatment procedures cannot be accomplished. Usually, apexogenesis and apexification have been used successfully to treat teeth with open apices. Nevertheless, pulp revitalization is also an alternative therapy for these teeth and there is growing scientific evidence regarding this treatment modality.
The dental pulp is a singular connective tissue confined by rigid walls of mineralized tissue in an environment that has a low tolerance to inflammation, where the tissue is supplied by the blood vessels passing through the apical foramen. An arborized vascular system and a delicate artery that penetrates the apical foramen represent its only blood source.
Orthodontic movement may cause a great number of tissue alterations in the dental pulp; however, these changes may not be entirely recognized owing to the difficulty in simulating clinical situations. Depending on the duration, type and magnitude of the force, and the physiological tissue tolerance, the pulp tissue may be affected in a reversible or irreversible manner. This presentation will discuss with clinical cases and scientific evidence these alterations and how to deal with the diagnostic procedure.
At conclusion, participants should be able to:
1. Identify the indications and contra-indications for regenerative endodontics.
2. Compare similarities and differences between pulp revitalization, apexogenesis and apexification.
3. List the pulp alterations that can occur during orthodontic treatment.
4. Discuss common orthodontic-endodontic treatment planning challenges.
5. Describe appropriate management of teeth requiring integrated endodontic and orthodontic treatment.
