Every Case Is a Big Case: How the New Patient Experience and Occlusion can be the Key to Predictability Seminar
Presenter: Dr. Kevin Kwiecien

Dentists – Embark on a transformative journey to elevate your dental practice by embracing a systematic approach to patient evaluation and treatment planning. This comprehensive course is designed to equip you with the skills and knowledge necessary to diagnose and treat a certain segment of patients who experience abrasion, attrition, sleep apnea, bruxism, and pain-related issues.

Throughout the course, we will emphasize a thorough understanding of the entire chewing system, including joints, muscles, teeth, periodontium, and how they synergistically function. Participants will learn to create precise bite records, custom splints, and capture impactful photography, all essential components in the treatment planning process.

Working in triads, you will experience this innovative hands-on approach, assuming the roles of an assistant, dentist, and patient. This unique experience will allow you to develop a strategic blueprint for predictable dentistry, integrating esthetics, function, structure, biology, and airway as your guide. By engaging in this immersive triad-based approach, you will gain invaluable insights into optimizing outcomes and delivering exceptional care to your patients.

  • Demonstrate the critical information to gather systematically during the exam
