This course provides a foundational understanding of the temporomandibular muscle and joint (TMJ) anatomy, structure, function, and common TMDs and orofacial pain evaluation. It offers evidence-based treatment options aimed at alleviating TMD pain and dysfunction. The clinical approach shifts from procedure-based dentistry to diagnosis-based staged care, aligning with the medical model. Students learn interdisciplinary care concepts, including intra-oral splints, physical therapy, pharmacotherapy, and self-care, along with risk assessment and medical screening tools. The course also covers pain mechanisms, TMD progression, and prevention techniques.

Cutting-Edge Implantology Mini-Residency: Hands-On Training with Live Patient Surgeries

This advanced dental implant course is designed for experienced dental professionals with prior implant surgery experience. Attendees are expected to have a foundation in basic surgical and implant placement techniques. To maximize the value of the course, we strongly recommend that doctors bring their own patient data for a workshop during the final session. The course guides participants from initial data collection to implant placement and temporization. It offers a holistic understanding and practical experience in dental implantology, addressing the growing preference for dental implants among patients. This high-level continuing education course has a unique goal: to empower participants to independently manage their own implant cases.

ATRAUMATIC RESTORATIVE TREATMENT

Dental caries is a prevalent chronic disease, with disparities in treatment, especially among low-income families. Despite the push for medical management of caries, adoption has been slow in North America. Professor Jo Frencken introduced the Atraumatic Restorative Treatment (ART) over 35 years ago, emphasizing minimal invasiveness using high-viscosity glass-ionomer cement. Initially for resource-limited areas, ART is now globally recognized, with 800+ studies by 2023. Recent meta-analyses show ART's effectiveness matches traditional methods. ART's painless approach benefits children, the elderly, and those with challenges, avoiding dental anxiety. It's mobile, aerosol-free, and seen by many dentists as a practice enhancer.
