Airway, Inflammation and TMD – The Critical Connection

Dentistry's recent interest in Sleep Apnea has evolved into an important new understanding of the significant links between airway and breathing disorders, TMD and malocclusions and systemic inflammation, creating new opportunities for dental teams to address the patient's complete health. By developing an integrative dental medicine approach, dentists will have the ability to expand services, play a positive role in our current health care crisis and collaborate with the larger medical community.

Complete Team Dentistry

Making it Easy for Patients to Say “Yes!”

Its content will surprise you in a good way. It’s not the same old “educate … educate … educate” approach to case acceptance. Nor is it a quick-fix, tips-and-tricks, say-this-don’t-say-that kind of program. It has fresh ideas; hundreds of dentists have been successful with it, and your team and patients will love it. I’ll show you and your team the thinking, actions and tools that consistently make dental practices profitable. I’ll share with you what I’ve been teaching thousands of dentists through my 25 years of experience practicing restorative dentistry, writing journal articles and books, producing podcasts, and teaching workshops and seminars at major dental meetings: If they can do it, so can you!

Digital Solutions for Complete Dentistry

An organized and systematic approach is required to evaluate, diagnose and resolve esthetic/functional problems predictably. For many years we have understood an analogue workflow to this systemic approach.

During this course you learn a complete digital workflow from records to producing the final result.

This two-day dental assistant continuing education course is designed to teach dental assistants the skills necessary to support their dentists in diagnosis and treatment planning.
