Rise of Placental Tissue Products: Implications in Dentistry & Medicine
Mark C. Lucas, DDS, MS

The rise of placental tissue is forever changing medicine and Snoasis Medical has pioneered this development for over 10 years. Snoasis Medical products are protected by 100+ issued and pending patents. Its lead product, BioXclude® deepithelialized amnion-chorion allograft, represents a major innovation. BioXclude provides the benefits of an occlusive barrier and a growth factor and has anti-bacterial and pain relieving properties. These combined properties benefit applications in a wide variety of dental implant, endodontic, oral maxillofacial, and periodontal regenerative procedures. The lecture will review the history and evolution of placental tissue use in dentistry and medicine with background science and an ever-growing body of evidence supporting improved healing and outcomes as well as areas of future research.

The Next Evolution, BioXclude in Periodontal and Dental Implant Surgery
Dan Holtzclaw, DDS, MS

Dr. Dan Holtzclaw was an early adopter of BioXclude® deepithelialized amnion-chorion allograft.  Over these last nine years, he has helped broaden the understanding of how and where to use the membrane while uncovering key aspects related to handling, placement, and postoperative care. Dr. Holtzclaw has published 50+ peer reviewed journal articles, 10 of which document the performance of BioXclude. This lecture is a condensed version of Dr. Holtzclaw’s full day lecture, Tips From a $4 Million Dental Implant Practice: Techniques to Enhance the Surgical & Business Aspects of Your Practice.  It has an emphasis on the clinical application of BioXclude in periodontal and dental implant surgery and demonstrates how adoption of BioXclude is a simple yet highly effective means to increase both practice productivity and patient satisfaction.
