- TMJ disorders are one of those areas where almost every dentist feels uncomfortable.
- In dental school we didn’t get much classroom information, and little or no clinical experience.
- Our treatments in practice are often hit and miss, without clarity on why sometimes we hit, and other times we miss.
- In this lecture Dr. Spencer will review the relevant anatomy and discuss simple examination, diagnosis and treatment techniques that will allow you to stun your next TMJD patients with your understanding of their issues, and allow you to help many more people.
- Review and remember the relevant anatomy of the head and neck
- Understand principles of examination and evaluation for TMJD
- Have a straightforward way to diagnose the most common TMJD disorders
Dr. Spencer’s lecture runs on May 4th at 2:30 – 5:00 pm
