Technology advances everyday. This presentation, serves as the appetizer for the subsequent speakers, will stress on the basic principles and importance of the laser physics in this advance technology and how will they affect the outcome of clinical applications. The importance of safety measures in using lasers will also be addressed.
Lecture 2: Laser in biomodulation – theory to practice in periodontology
Dr. Lai Man Lung, Stanley
Clinical Assistant Professor
Periodontology, Faculty of Dentistry,
The University of Hong Kong
Different dental lasers are being used in dentistry nowadays. Laser applications by clinicians mainly confined to cutting or to ablating tissues. Examples being Erbium:YAG, Erbium:Cr:YSGG, Nd:YAG, diode or CO2 laser machines. A less known type of laser application called “Low level laser” generally involved smaller and less expensive machine which operate in milliwatt range. The therapeutic effects given by this type of laser, or what is called either the “Low level laser therapy (LLLT)” or “therapeutic laser”, is in fact well substantiated by science and is used in diverse clinical applications. This lecture will discuss about LLLT and highlight the science and research supporting the application of this type of laser in periodontology. Furthermore, possible applications of LLLT treatment modality in periodontal and implant therapy will also be covered.
Lecture 3: The Uses of Laser in the Management of Periodontal Diseases
Dr. Fung Kin Yue, Clive
Specialist in Periodontology
BDS(HK), MDS(HK), FCDSHK(Periodontology),
FHKAM(Dental Surgery), FAMS(Periodontology)
This presentation will review the current and potential applications of laser technology in the treatment of periodontal diseases. As laser systems applying the ablation effect of light energy, which is completely different from conventional mechanical debridement, may emerge as a new technical modality for non-surgical and surgical periodontal therapy and based on its various characteristics, such as ablation or vaporization, hemostasis, and sterilization effect, laser treatment may serve as an adjunct or alternative to conventional, mechanical periodontal therapy.
Welcoming Lectures to New Graduates
Again this year, we have organized a welcoming gathering with our fellow new dental graduates right on the day they were notified with their successful examination results. Two lectures were presented by our council members Dr. Kelvin Wan and Dr. Kenny Tong on topics that might be useful for their future career. A number of them also joined our Society on that day and started their commitment of life-long learning as it is becoming an essential part of any modern profession.
6th July 2011 (Wednesday)
7:00 – 9:30 pm
Lecture Theater 2,
Prince Philip Dental Hospital
34 Hospital Road, Sai Ying Pun, Hong Kong

Daily exercise in risk management of periodontal monitoring
By Dr. Kelvin Wan
Outline:Undiagnosed and untreated periodontal disease is one of the fastest growing area of litigation and complaints in dental field. Accurate diagnosis, proper periodontal record keeping and good communication with patient are essential to avoid medical-legal allegations. The lecture would cover the risk management and clinical audit of periodontal patient in our daily practice.
Management of periodontal patients in daily practice
By Dr. Kenny Tong
Outline: This lecture will focus on the management of periodontal patients in general dental practice setting. A walk-through of the process of periodontal diagnosis and treatment planning will be presented. A brief discussion on how to make a proper periodontal referral would also be made.

9th Asian Pacific Society of Periodontology Meeting Multi-disciplinary management of periodontal diseases
TWO-DAY CONFERENCE 9 – 10 SEPTEMBER 2011, L’Hotel Nina et Convention Centre, Hong Kong SAR
and Pre-meeting hands-on session
Effective periodontal care in general dental practice
It is our great pleasure on behalf of the Local Organizing Committee to invite you to attend the 9th Asian Pacific Society of Periodontology (APSP) Meeting which will take place from 9 to 10 September 2011 in the vibrant, cosmopolitan city of Hong Kong.
The development of Periodontolgy specialty in the Asia Pacific region, in particular in China is unprecedented in the past decade. The increasing influence of periodontal diseases on the population level and its association with systemic health and well-being emphasizes the importance of promoting periodontal awareness in general dental practice and, cross-disciplinary clinical and research collaborations. The theme for this year’s APSP meeting - “Multi-disciplinary management of periodontal diseases” is tailored for this purpose.
The 9th APSP meeting provides an unique opportunity for scholars, researchers and clinicians in General Dentistry and Periodontology from the Asia Pacific region and other parts of the World to network, exchange views and share their evidence, practices, and experiences in Periodontal treatments and modalities.
Hong Kong is a metropolis full of energy and fascination. The combination of a magnificent skyline, diverse cuisine, unique history, a rich culture, and contemporary technology will make for a memorable experience. We look forward to seeing you in Hong Kong in September 2011.
