Discover The Pathway to
Predictable Dentistry

Dentists who commit to learning the protocols outlined in this course will experience greater enjoyment and profitability in their practices. They generally will work fewer clinical hours, have less stress and achieve higher net incomes. This is all possible by following a proven path to the most important quality in any Complete Dental Practice – learning to be PREDICTIVE in all the procedures performed. At The Dawson Academy, we call this “The Pathway to Predictability.”

This video series will show you how to go beyond treating the biologic issues of the teeth and gums, to diagnosing and treating the entire Masticatory System. We’ll show you how as a Complete Dentist you will have the knowledge and ability to create functionally stable occlusions as well as the skills to create beautiful smiles.

Dr. John Cranham will demonstrate the importance of how the joints, muscles and teeth (the masticatory system) are designed to work together in functional harmony. He’ll discuss the steps towards implementing a protocol for complete evaluation and diagnosis that allows for the precise determination of functionally correct, highly esthetic, tooth contours. Dr. Cranham will show how to develop laboratory communication tools so there is no guesswork required when the technician creates restorations – from a single crown to full mouth rehabilitation. And finally, you’ll learn verification protocols to ensure all of the esthetic and functional goals have been met prior to placing the restorations in the mouth.

Learning Objectives

  • Identify the 4 steps required to achieve predictable success for treating the simplest case to the most complex.
  •  Learn the process for designing functionally stable occlusions without guesswork.
  • Develop protocols for evaluating, diagnosing and treating patients when a change in the size, position or contour of the teeth is necessary, including severe wear cases.
  • Recognize the stages in treatment sequencing enabling for phased treatment when the patient can not proceed with an entire treatment plan.
  • Understand the process for effectively communicating to the lab and verifying the work prior to placement
