Speaker Profile

Prof Mohamed I. Fayad DDS, MS, PhD

Associate Professor, Director of Endodontic Research, University of Illinois Chicago, USA

Dr. Fayad received his DDS in 1985 from the Collage of Dentistry, Cairo University. Dr. Fayad received his Master’s in Oral Sciences in 1994 from the University of Buffalo at NewYork. He received his PhD in 1996 as a joint supervision between University of Buffalo at New York and Cairo University. He received his Endodontic training at the college of Dentistry at UIC. Currently he is the director of endodontic research, and a clinical associate professor in the Endodontic department at College of Dentistry at UIC, dividing his time between teaching, research, intra-and extra-mural continuing education and private practice. He currently serves on the Scientific Advisory and Manuscript Review Panels of the Journal of Endodontics, and Evidence Based Endodontics Journal. He served on the AAE Research and Scientific Affairs Committee and co-chaired AAE/AAOMR committee drafting the joint position statement on CBCT (2015).  He has numerous publications and chapters in peer reviewed journals and textbooks (Pathways of the pulp, Contemporary surgical Endodontics, and Endodontics Principles and Practice). He is the co-editor of the CBCT text book (3-D Imaging in Endodontics: A new Era in diagnosis and treatment) by Springer (2016). He is a recipient of the Calvin D. Torneck Part-Time Educator Award for 2022 by the American Association of Endodontists. He is a Diplomate of the American Board of Endodontics and gave numerous presentations nationally and internationally.


Aims and objectives:

Cone-beam technology currently has numerous applications in the dental field. CBCT is having great impact and is changing dramatically case diagnosis, treatment planning and treatment outcomes in the daily practice. Conventional 2-dimensional radiography uses defined criteria for non-surgical and surgical outcome assessment. This presentation will focus on how CBCT technology and a new imaging software e-VOLDX has provided clinicians with a different understanding of the dynamics of dental disease as well as healing.  Recent uses of CBCT for diagnosis and targeted apical surgery as well as utilization of new technologies as piezoelectric surgery may even increase the survival of teeth after endodontic microsurgery.

The lecture will detail the utilization of CBCT imaging in treatment planning surgical cases in close proximity to vital structures. The utilization of piezoelectric surgery and the steps involved in minimal trauma and targeted apical micro-surgery (MTAMS) with dynamic navigation in cases close to vital structures will be discussed. Based on the information provided from CBCT volumes, changes in treatment protocols and armamentarium will be presented. 


Learning outcomes:

At the end of the lecture, the participants should be able to:

  1. Apply CBCT imaging in the following cases: Diagnosis of pain, cracked teeth, vertical root fracture and resorption defects.

  2. Import CBCT dicom images into e-VOLDX software and Navident dynamic navigation to treatment plan and treat complex non-surgical and surgical cases.

  3. Understand the application of minimal trauma and targeted micro-surgical approach in periapical surgery.

  4. Utilize 3-D information to establish the correct strategy to achieve a good prognosis well before the beginning of the treatment (non-surgical, surgical or single tooth implant).


Outline of the day:

Presentation 1: 3-D imaging in Diagnosis and treatment planning.

Presentation 2: Cracking the crack tooth code utilizing CBCT imaging.

Presentation 3: 3-D imaging in Minimal Trauma Apical Micro-surgery.
