Learn how to protect your patients and the dentistry you do for them from the destructive forces that threaten them. Occlusion – from every day restorative therapy to treating the occlusal neurotic and the role of occlusion in orofacial pain, headache, and joint dysfunction.

Join Dr Barry Glassman on his only UK seminars in 2024!

Are you currently using conventional night guards or repositioning appliances to protect your patients whose diurnal and/or nocturnal activity is causing dental damage, threatening your dentistry, or contributing to pain or dysfunction?

Are you using SCi’s but wonder about why it is so effective or are the concerns about segmental appliances that are often expressed real?

When is an SCi contraindicated?

Dr Barry Glassman is an internationally recognised authority on occlusion and the role of parafunctional control in the protection of the forces that threaten our patients in so many ways. He will guide you through two enjoyable and enlightening days that exposes a new truly life changing perspective on evidence based concepts that lead to extremely practical clinical skills. These exciting discoveries result in simplified concepts to successfully protect your patient’s teeth and at the same time potentially play a major role in management of previously undiagnosed pain and joint dysfunction.

This course is suitable for any GDP, no matter what your occlusal training to date has been.

A word from Dr Glassman on the course:

I am thrilled to announce that S4S is sponsoring a comprehensive event designed to give dentists a greater understanding of the role of occlusion in not only common dental issues, but also headache and temporomandibular joint dysfunction. These two days will increase your knowledge base and confidence levels in terms of accurate diagnosis and in treatment with appropriate splint therapy.  We truly believe that delegates will walk away with a total appreciation of the role that occlusion plays in pain and dysfunction, and knowing that this really was the last occlusion course they will ever need.
