What Customer says about Sadao Sato

sadao sato tmj diagnosis treatment

Dr. Sato teaches the occlusion and function oriented orthodontics in relation to the craniomandibular system. A very accurate diagnosis, based on condylograph, cephalometrics and all these information transferred to articulator mounted casts is included in this course. Once you step into it, I'm sure it will help you to set the standard of dental service we provide to the highest possible level!

You do not know what you do not know. And what you think you know about occlusion is probably wrong or insufficient. Heike's continuum made the above statements very clear. An invaluable course for everyone with a dental license.

The 3 year orthodontic program is the most exciting part of my training on this concept. Once you receive and digest the information about this treatment approach the 3 year ortho program clears up all the dust and the amount of information we get is mind blowing and extremely exciting.

The 3-year orthodontic program is great. It is challenging and continues to keep me interested in orthodontics according to Prof. Sato's technique, philosophy, diagnosis, and treatment planning. I am amazed at the cases that are treated and that we are able to treat.

Marcus Kai
Orthodontist, San Jose, CA

Dr. Kramer's approach and presentation allows you to see occlusion, muscles and function from a completely different perspective. You soon realize that our responsibility as dentists should be on long term health and stability.  If we got the function correct the esthetics will follow.

I feel so fortunate to have three fantastic mentors in Professor Sato, Heike Kraemer, and Roberto Velasquez. They were instrumental in changing my patient experience and treatment results. Thank you for providing answers to 20 years of questions.
