Demystifying Occlusion In-Person Seminar

Don't let your fear of occlusion scare you away from Great Dentistry.

Spear Education's two-day, in-person seminar, Demystifying Occlusion, in Boston, MA, will give you the courage and knowledge needed to conquer the scary ‘what-ifs’ that can come with occlusion.  

During this seminar, we'll help you take the fear out of occlusion by learning how to truly understand occlusal concepts and then how to evaluate the jaw joint, muscles, and teeth to let those dictate the best possible occlusal outcome for your patients. 

Some of what you’ll walk away with:

  • Simplified occlusion understanding, recognizing high-risk patients, and preventive measures. 
  • Confidence in TMJ evaluation, identify issues, propose solutions, and communicate. 
  • Efficiently assess muscles, predict therapy needs, discuss treatment, and engage patients. 
  • Streamlined joint and muscle exams, demonstrated on video for easy implementation. 
  • Choosing occlusal appliances confidently, guided by symptoms, history, and patient communication.

14 CEs are available for completing this seminar.

Available Dates:

  • Aug. 15-16, 2024
