Prosthetic Concepts in Advanced Interdisciplinary Treatment:
Dates TBD, 2022
The Ultimate Program in Cranio-Mandibular Dentistry and Occlusion Medicine
Reasons to join this course
This Therapy curriculum is the continuation of the diagnostic course. The primary purpose of this program is to impart profound knowledge of advanced interdisciplinary treatment concepts. The students will gain expertise in various aspects of interdisciplinary therapy and will learn to manage treatment and sequence in complex patient cases.
After the completion of the Diagnostic Continuum the participants are able to collect the necessary diagnostic information and to conclude a comprehensive diagnosis and treatment plan.
In this program, the participants will present their own cases and treat their patients. After case discussion, the rehabilitation of the masticatory organ will be defined and then performed by the participants in their practices. The modular structure over 1 and ½ years allows the participants to be guided through the treatment process of complex cases.
Prerequisite for this program is the attendance of the IDEA Diagnostic Continuum.
Special focus of this Therapy course is Interdisciplinary Team Work and State-of-the-Art in the areas of Periodontics, Restorative Dentistry, Orthodontics, Dental Technology, Implantology and Prosthetics. Also the interdisciplinary collaboration with other medical fields will be discussed. The goal of this program is to achieve predictable and long-term stable treatment results.

Thank you Bob and Heike for the course. This program is an excellent continuation of the diagnostic continuum. I enjoyed it greatly. Treatment planning will be a great benefit for my practice.
If you want to understand occlusion, you HAVE to take this course. It has truly changed my practice and my life.
This course is instrumental in applying the knowledge that I learned from the first Continuum. It ties.
Thank you Heike and Bob Lamb for the wonderful course. I really appreciate all of the passion and effort you put into this course. Every day always has some amazing surprise in store. Dankeschoen.
