The key relationship between Temporomandibular Disorders, occlusion, airway and sleep apnea

Integrative Dental Medicine emphasizes the golden opportunity for Dental Teams to learn the knowledge and skills to begin addressing the dental patient’s complete health.
For example, the most immediate essential of Complete Health is an open Airway, proper Breathing, and Oxygen delivery to every cell.
It has become apparent in recent years that this is a very important subject in Dentistry. Not only is it possible to evaluate for breathing dysfunction that affects systemic health but also understand the key relationship between breathing dysfunction and dental malocclusion, tongue thrusting habits, clenching & bruxism, abrasion & erosion dental wear, gastric reflux, TMD symptoms including sore muscles & joints, headaches, and cervical neck discomfort. This covers many of the common issues confronted by every Dentist. It is imperative to be well versed in Airway & Breathing to excel as a problem solver in Dentistry and to produce predictably stable results in Restorative Dentistry.
This Program is focused on helping Dentists identify the major risk factors of Complete Health and utilize a practical clinical model for evaluation, diagnosis and treatment.
A comprehensive “Integrative Dental Medicine Checklist” will be provided to simplify the learning of this subject and guide the clinical implementation on an individual patient basis.
The Checklist will allow the whole Dental Team to feel confident in incorporating this new information into the patient evaluation process.
This promises to be the most interesting and personal lecture you will ever experience, presented by the recognized authority in the Integrative Dental Medicine Model.



  1. Each participant will learn the connection between dentistry and Integrative Dental Medicine.
  2. Each participant will be able to understand the connection between malocclusion, tooth wear, respiratory disorders and Gastroesofageal reflux Disease (GERD).
  3. Each participant wil learn how to do an “screening test” in order to detect sleep apnea, respiratory disorders, Diabetes, Gastroesofageal Reflux Disease (GERD) and implement it immediately on their daily practice.
