Dentists who ignore the TMJs can never be competent in diagnosing or treating occlusions. Dentists who ignore occlusion can never be fully competent in diagnosing or treating problems of the TMJs. Dentists who ignore the relationships of occlusion to the position and condition of the TMJs can only guess at diagnosing and treating a myriad of problems including excessive tooth wear, sore teeth, loose teeth, masticatory muscle pain, and a variety of other orofacial pain problems. But understanding what it takes to keep the total masticatory system in harmony has positive consequences beyond achieving the goal of a peaceful neuromusculature. It is the absolute key to determining many of the most important decisions regarding esthetics and tooth alignment, including the precise positioning and contour of anterior teeth.
Most dentists have questions about occlusion, TMD and functional smile design. This seminar will answer these questions and more.

The Dawson approach is a well delivered, structured step by step program which focuses on putting practical learnt skills into everyday use to arrive at a conservative and stable treatment plan. It is one of the best programs that I have, and will continue to be involved with.

It feels as if I have found a light at the end of the tunnel: there is still a way to go, but the goal is sure.

I am using the knowledge from The Dawson Academy every day. I have been able to help lots of people with their occlusal problems, and I have been able to create beautiful smiles that I wouldn't have had a clue about only years earlier.
