Reasons to join this course: 

This continuum is addressed to all dental professionals who wish to upgrade their skills for treatment of complex cases and in comprehensive interdisciplinary dentistry. Whether or not occlusion plays a role in the long-term success of dental treatment is still discussed. If we look at occlusion in a static way this debate might be appro­priate. But, if we look at the masticatory system under the aspect of dynamic functions then the importance of occlusion becomes evident.

"I did not know what to expect at the time I signed up for the course. I wanted to understand more about occlusion.  After many years of studying occlusion, I was still confused. I was not confident about making clinical decisions for my patients. I had many questions in my mind during the practice that were unanswered. The first module passed quickly. The amount of information I learned was incredible.  It gives me tremendous answers to my questions and gives me confidence to solve my clinical problems. I am sure that applying what I have learned in this course is going to change my practice forever and surely make me the best dentist I can possibly be. I strongly recommend this continuum to any like-minded dentist. Thank you very much."

"Heike has such a wonderful command of comprehensive dentistry. It seems there is never a question that she cannot answer. It is so nice to understand why certain pathologies are occurring and how to definitively treat my patients."

Miles Guyton, General Practitioner, San Jose, CA
