May 2nd, 2024

8:30 to 12:00

  • Anatomy. Various anatomic structures of the oral and maxillofacial area and their common radiological appearance using intraoral, extraoral, and cone beam CT images.
  • Multiplanar reconstructions. Axial, coronal, and sagittal views are used to describe the anatomy.
  • Radiographic guidelines. Visualize bony lesions in 3 dimensions.

1:30 to 5:00

  • Cyst and benign lesions. Overview of the benign lesion that can develop from both odontogenic and nonodontogenic tissues in the maxilla and mandible.
  • Neural and vascular lesions.
  • Fibro-osseous lesions. Fibrous dysplasia in the jaw and their multiple presentations. Their specific radiographic presentations in establishing a diagnosis.
  • Malignancies. Malignant lesions often have serious consequences, including disfigurement and death. The radiographic characteristic appearance of malignancies.
  • Role of radiographic imaging in diagnosis. Osteonecrotic lesions and treatment options.

May 3rd, 2024

8:30 to 12:00

  • Endodontics. Guidelines of the American Association of Endodontics
  • The benefits and limitations of CBCT in endodontics.
  • Identification of some differences in the diagnostic abilities of 2D- and 3D-imaging technologies.
  • Management of CBCT in endodontics. Importance of assessing endodontic patients on an individual basis.

1:30 to 5:00

  • Implant surgery. Dental CBCT is justified for presurgical diagnosis, preoperative planning, and preoperative transfer for oral implant rehabilitation.
  • Periodontal disease. CBCT displays 3D images for the diagnosis of intra bony defects, furcation involvements, and buccal/lingual bone destructions.

May 4th, 2024

8:30 to 12:00

  • Dental surgery and dental impactions. Over projection between the third molar and the mandibular canal.

  • CBCT used as a cost- and dose-effective imaging modality for the diagnostic assessment of a variety of TMJ conditions. CBCT has been found to be superior to conventional radiographical examinations as well as MRI in assessment of the TMJ.

1:30 to 5:00

  • Sleep Apnea.
  • Evaluation of the upper airway dimensions of obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) and control subjects using a cone-beam computed tomography.
  • Assessment of the airway dimensions.

  1. Dev Support

    “One of the best courses I have taken in my career, Dr.katya shines the light at things that are hidden in plain sight, in a very simple and logical way, if you are interested in defensive dentistry, she got few pearls as well. Monday morning, I applied few of her tricks and i was able to see more, diagnose better, and subsequently I was able to do better treatment. I highly recommend her course.” —Dr. Amer Alshareef DDS PA.

  2. Dev Support

    “I can not express enough the incredible value of Dr Archambault’s mini residency course. The material is presented with fun and humorous antidotes that makes its understandable and rememberable . This is by far the best radiology course you could ask for . I am so grateful that I found this opportunity and feel like I have a renewed since of confidence with my CBCT.” —Dr. K. Pat Brown

  3. Dev Support

    “I had the chance to complete the three days mini Residency in Oral and Maxillofacial Radiology with Dr Katya at UCSD. This course is indeed an eye opener and has helped me to better diagnose my patients at our community health center, and to know when to refer to specialists. The way I see now radiographs is different and using CBCT has enhanced both of my diagnostic and clinical skills. I cannot longer do Endodontics, TMJ assessments, and Third Molars Surgeries without CBCT reading. Thanks you Dr. Katya, thanks to you I love more Radiology.” —Dr. Yessenia Valverde Ingersoll DMD Ph.D.

  4. Dev Support

    “I attended the 3 day mini-residency with Dr Katya Archambault on February 17-18, 2023. I had no CBCT experience at all before attending her lecture. I truly can say that I am able to read the scan with confidence now. Dr. Katya is an Encyclopedia of knowledge. She has great knowledge in radiology, oral surgery and reconstructive dentistry. There is nothing that she can’t help you with. With all her fame and expertise, Dr Katya is so humble and very approachable. She truly wants to teach us and we all felt like she is our friend. I can’t wait to attend more of her lectures. Thank you so much Dr Katya.” —Dr. Rima Shahhal DDS

  5. Dev Support

    “I thoroughly enjoyed the radiology mini residency at UCSD. I learned a lot and appreciated the small group setting that allowed Dr Katya to customize the course to our individual needs and preferences! She is not just extremely knowledgeable about the subject, but also very approachable, involves the students for an engaging, interactive learning experience, and presents the material in a memorable way – which is no easy task! I left feeling prepared to read CBCTs with predictability and confidence! Highly recommend this course to anyone who owns a CBCT!” —Dr. Sarah Jockin

  6. Dev Support

    “Malgré le fait que j’utilise les technologies d’imagerie 3D dans ma pratique depuis des années, j’ai décidé de faire la mini-résidence en radiologie maxillo-faciale à San Diego avec Dre Archambault. Il s’agit très certainement d’un des meilleurs cours que j’aie suivis dans ma carrière et ça valait amplement le détour. Merci pout tout, Katya!” —Dr. Simon Roy

  7. Dev Support

    “The course was very thorough and extensive, but most importantly it was a blast, which is a lot to say for a subject that can be a bit drab. Moreover, we were welcomed as if we were family. I highly recommend this program: I returned from it with a mind full of usable knowledge the next day. I now see the potential of this amazing asset that is 3D imaging and know better how to make my patients benefit from it. A thousand thanks, Dr. Katya!” —Dr. Quyn Ann Pham

  8. Dev Support

    “Wow! Since my return from the Mini-Residency at UCSD, we took at least 20 CBCTs. Not only are we diagnosing our patients more efficiently but we feel much more confident in the whole process. We found a lot of incidental findings. We found early asymptomatic apical lucencies. There is no other word than Thank you, Dr. Katia Archambault, my dental practice has been raised to a whole new level since your CBCT class! The Power of Diagnostic.” —Dr. Marjolaine Delongchamps

  9. Dev Support

    “After an amazing trip to San Diego for the mini-residency in maxillofacial radiology with Dr. Archambault, from which I came back with a mind full of knowledge ready to use the next day, I felt that my staff was missing the ability to follow my train of thoughts in diagnostics and that they could use some of that acquired knowledge in 3D radiology, to better serve our patients. So, when the opportunity came for us to see her closer to home, I certainly took it! And did we ever have a good time!” —Dr. Simon Roy

  10. Dev Support

    “Wow, depuis que je suis revenu de San Diego, on doit avoir pris une vingtaine de CBCT petit champ pour éclairer notre diagnostic ou pour nous assurer que tout était ok avant un endo ou une couronne. On a intercepté tellement de futur problème et vu tellement de chose c’est incroyable. Il n’y a pas d’autre mot que Merci Dr. Katia Archambault, ma pratique à atteint un autre niveau depuis ton cour. The Power of diagnostic” —Dr. Marjolaine Delongchamps

  11. Dev Support

    “In spite of the fact that I have been using 3D imaging in my practice for years, I felt a refresher course could help me improve my skills. Therefore, I decided to attend the Maxillo-facial Mini-Residency at UCSD in San Diego with Dr. Archambault. What an amazing learning experience! Dr. Archambault is extremely knowledgeable and has a particular talent to pass on this knowledge casually and simply.” —Dr. Simon Roy

  12. Dev Support

    “Dr. Archambault is extremely knowledgeable and has a special talent to transmit that knowledge in a very casual, down-to-earth manner. It definitely was worth the trip. We are now much better equipped as a team to give more thorough service to our patients. Thank you ever so much, Dr. Katya!” —Dr. Simon Roy
