Date of Presentation
While general and specialty practices would like to help their patients who have TMD, the apparent complexity of diagnosing and managing TMD can seem prohibitive. This course will simplify the diagnostics of TMD to a level that will efficiently serve most of the TMD cases you see. We will then teach you how to hone in on causes for each patient. Instruction in safe and conservative treatments will follow. Examples from our clinic will be used to help you apply your knowledge.
1. Identify initiators and perpetuators of your patients’ TMD.
2. Perform and prescribe simple treatments appropriate for mild-to-moderate TMDs.
3. Learn how to refer the remaining cases appropriately.
