Dr. Kraemer’s and Prof. Sato’s Occlusion Program is your best option to learn excellence in both functional and esthetic dentistry.

This Program will teach you Modern Occlusion Concepts and Comprehensive Interdisciplinary Dentistry. It covers everything from Occlusion, Function, TMD, Diagnosis, Treatment Planning, and Initial therapy, including an understanding for stable Orthodontics. It will be an eye-opening experience about the complexity of the masticatory organ and the responsibility which it imposes on dentists and orthodontists.

The terms Cranio-mandibular Dentistry and Occlusion Medicine describe the extend of impact our profession has on teeth and the masticatory organ. Teeth dictate mandibular position and mandibular position plays the key role for dental health and successful treatment.

If you are looking for stable dentistry and orthdontics, for treatment of dysfunctional patients, if you desire to treat complex cases, if you want to improve your diagnostic and treatment planning skills, increase your case acceptance, if you are tired of single tooth dentistry or observing the breakdown or relapse of your own cases, you should join us.

In this program you will learn the relevant steps to make every case predictable and easy to treat. You will understand the underlying problems and you will be able to develop the correct treatment plan, “the red line to success”. Become a specialist of the masticatory organ and the problem solver in your area.

Occlusion of the 21st Century. With this program you find an advanced, evidenced-based concept for predictable and stable dentistry
