Really worthwhile to go through the training to understand how to properly treat these more complex cases. You have to stick with the program and adhere to the recommendation in order to get the full benefits out of it. I’m very glad I’m investing in this level of training at an early stage in my career.

This is a course you must take to be able to offer excellent care for your patients. I’ve come to realize that without getting the joints stable first all other care we provide is unstable and will fail over time.

Tooth wear is one of the most obvious manifestations of underlying functional issues. There is nothing more fun and rewarding than creating a new smile for someone that is in need. Yet many of the patients who are driven towards cosmetic dentistry, have an unattractive smile, because of underlying functional issues.
