From Simple Occlusal Adjustments to Treating Occlusal Neurotics
by Dr. Barry Glassman
We have all dealt with a postrestorative complaint and corrected it by adjusting a “high spot” that was inadvertently created during the procedure. Almost without fail, a single adjustment resolves the complaint. We’ve also all dealt with patients who were hyperaware of their occlusion. This course is geared for the general dentist who wants to improve daily occlusal adjustments in restorative therapy and learn how to deal with more complex occlusal issues.

Rapid Dentures: Predictable, Efficient, Profitable
by Dr. Joe Barker
For years, dentures have taken too much chair time with very little predictability or profitability.

Dentists will learn how to make dentures predictable, how to be efficient and how to increase profits from dentures.

Trauma is the most common cause of pain-related temporomandibular disorders (TMD). More than half of trauma cases (61%) result from patients opening their mouth too wide or too long. In this course, Schiffman describes how to diagnose and manage your patients with pain-related TMD using evidence-based methods. You will be ready the next time your patient complains of painful TMD during or after a dental procedure.

Implementing Teledentistry Into Your Practice

The future of dentistry is here and now. Since COVID-19, virtual visits are now part of reducing viral exposures in the dental office.

Teledentistry can become a revenue-generating addition to your practice while improving patient care.
