This course will provide experiential learning for those treating TMD patients. You will explore how to make better diagnoses and learn about applications of multiple types of treatment therapies, while bringing you to a new level of knowledge regarding the anatomy.  This course is open to all experience levels.

Participants are encouraged to bring cases. These cases will be the framework of the course.

A systematic approach to diagnosing, and treatment will be taught along with an opportunity to use hands-on learning with the cases brought by participants.
