Downtown Dental staff recently landed in Vegas for TMD Practical Advanced Training (PAT) with LVI (The Las Vegas Institute for Advanced Dental Studies), a postgraduate training center for dentists.
This course was designed to teach the components of the real world TMD evaluation. Dr. Clark and his team participated in a hands on workshop to discuss TMD records, comprehensive evaluations, head and neck radiographic evaluations and the OSA/TMD relationship. We were also presented with opportunities to help solve advanced problem cases with a live patient demo in addition discussions and reviews for difficult cases brought by the participants. It was a worthwhile trip and the training made us even BETTER at diagnosing and treating head, neck, and jaw issues.
