The target audience for this medical event is Dentists. This CME Conference has been approved for a maximum of 64 Continuing Education credit hours. Seminar 1 – Combines Level 1, Level 2, Level 3, and Level 4 Level 1: Mar 05 - 06, 2019 Level 1 advances the astute dentist to realize the refined nuances of what it takes to register an "optimized bite" recording. These advance teachings go beyond classic "neuromuscular" occlusal concepts and classical TENS bite techniques. Dr. Chan's GNM occlsual process addresses what is not recognized even in NM teachings. A blend of both gnathologic and neuromuscular concepts are uniquely presented. Dr. Chan is able to uniquely bridge the gap and bring a NEW "Thinking Process" to every GP and specialist, addressing the problems every experience dentist knows exists but do not know what to do about it. GNM is not NM. Level 2: Mar 07 - 08, 2019 Level 2 is an interactive course designed to enhance the dentists’ inquiring mind to discover his/her potential. Participants will learn interpretation of TM joint tomography, airway, and cervical neck imaging of the craniomandibular structures. How to document, and gather records to make the diagnosis. Introduction to baseline measurements using EMG, CMS and ESG as additional aids to understand the physical findings will be presented. The highlight of the course is Dr. Chan's demonstration of how to adjust the orthotic. Level 3: Mar 11 - 12, 2019 Understanding how to establish and communicate and overall game plan and treatment goals are crucial to any treatment prior to any comprehensive tooth preparation begins in order to avoid mishaps. Without these key principles and concepts the dentist will continue to experience costly occlusal challenges, instability and frustrations. Level 4: Mar 13 - 14, 2019 This Level 4 allows dentists to see the efficiency of time and movement through an orthotic that speeds up a reline visit that sometimes has to happen because of an out of town patient who maybe cannot wait for a lab to do your reline. It's not as hard as one thinks when one watches the systematic approach that Dr. Chan has developed. The first time the course is taken the doctor focuses on drawing dots and lines and trying to keep track of grooves and "does it look like teeth yet" thinking. When doctors return to audit the course they see more clearly the almost factory like way one can carve the acrylic without the worry that it will look like a tooth!
