This two-day course is an introduction to modern occlusion concepts and true comprehensive interdisciplinary dentistry. It will be an eye-opening experience to understand the complexity of the masticatory organ and the role and responsibility which it imposes it on the dentist.

The terms Cranio-mandibular Dentistry and Occlusion Medicine describe the extend of impact our profession has on teeth and on the entire human body. Teeth dictate mandibular position and mandibular position plays the key role for dental health and many physical conditions.

When you have the necessary diagnostic information, every case becomes predictable to treat, successful and easy, because you see the red line! Enable yourself to treat with ease these patients who nobody wants to touch anymore.
