This continuum is addressed to all dental professionals who wish to upgrade their practice in comprehensive and interdisciplinary dentistry. This program allows clinicians to achieve predictable dentistry and to do more complex cases. In order to obtain long-term treatment success in all disciplines of dentistry, complete diagnostic information about the patient’s masticatory system and functional state is essential. This course teaches the paradigm shift from single tooth treatment approach to comprehensive, evidence based diagnostics and interdisciplinary therapy.
