This course will be comprised of lectures on the temporomandibular joint disorders and clinical hands-on experience that will be comprised in examining, diagnosing and treating patients with TMD and orofacial pain disorders. Interest in TM disorders has gone through evolutionary and revolutionary changes. Consensus on the treatment of TMD has been slowly developing but there is still great controversy over appropriate treatment for these problems. This course will provide training commensurate with standards of care that have been developing in the academic communities around the world over the last 3 decades. This course is designed to offer a comprehensive experience for the practicing dentist that will connect the medical and dental aspects of TMD.
