This is the most important course that you will ever take if you really want to understand why things go wrong in more advanced dentistry. This is the course that gives you the real answers about occlusal dysfunction, relapse cases, and treatment instability. Upon completing Foundational Occlusion you will know exactly how the joint structures support the function of the occlusion, and you will finally be given answers about managing unstable restorative, orthodontic, and surgical cases. The clinical skills gained from this course will tell you exactly how to design an occlusal treatment plan and why the condylar position may have to vary from one patient to the next. After you take this course you will not be able to find any other joint foundation experts in your community - you will be the expert.
