This Mini-Residency program is designed for dentists who would like to increase their knowledge of TMD (Temporomandibular Disorder), and is suitable for both beginners and for individuals who have previous experience with TMD patients. Course participants will engage in lectures, group discussions and extensive hands-on workshops, with the goal of preparing themselves to evaluate both simple and complex TMD cases.
As part of this program, participants will learn the necessary steps to complete a comprehensive TMD evaluation, and will be given detailed information on the epidemiology, classification, signs and symptoms of this condition. Participants will also receive instruction on how to develop an appropriate plan of care for TMD patients, while understanding when adjunct forms of therapy should be incorporated. The program will provide a clear understanding regarding the need for a multidisciplinary approach in the management of patients with TMD. At the completion of the program, participants should be able to understand the correlation between the jaw, muscles, head, cervical spine and body posture in the diagnosis and treatment of patients with temporomandibular disorders.
