If this course can give you one thing, it would be to help you better understand why dentistry fails. When we understand that, we are better equipped with the knowledge of how to avoid that failure.

People are drawn to occlusion for a couple of reasons: to attain success, or to avoid failure; and that is really just the opposite side of the same coin.

Occlusion in Everyday Practice is about understanding the why, the how, and the what of occlusion: why is it important, what can it provide, and how can be accomplished? 

It can be one of the driest & most confusing of subjects. 

It is however one of the most, if not the most critical aspect of diagnosis and treatment planning when it comes to the longevity of the restorative dentistry that we provide for our patients.

Here is the secret: Occlusion in Everyday Practice is not exactly about occlusion. It is about being able to provide your patients with predictable, practical and ultimately profitable dentistry that is comfortable to provide.

It is about blending and understanding communication, case planning and occlusion as the triad to success. The blending fo the three will make you not just a better dentist. It will improve your case acceptance, your case success and longevity and help you just enjoy dentistry more. Why? Because the tension and anxiety of the unknown will start to fade away
