ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. (Dec. 26, 2018) – Many people have undiagnosed temporomandibular joint disorders (TMD) and under-treated occluso-muscle pain. Patients treated with an oral appliance often have an incorrect or poorly fabricated appliance, which can sometimes worsen or advance an already-present problem.
The Dawson Academy has been teaching for decades the importance of understanding occlusion in order to provide patients with predictable, functional, and long-lasting care. With the groundswell of recent research it has become clear that airway and sleep-disordered breathing must also be a consideration for patients' long-term health.
Are you screening and treating breathing and airway issues predictably?
Internationally known dentists to teach two-day symposium in St. PetersburgST. PETERSBURG, Fla. (Nov. 28, 2018) –The Dawson Academy’s third Airway Symposium will share the latest information and research about the practical application of diagnosing, evaluating and treating airway and sleep-disordered breathing in children and adults.
Dr. Barry Raphael discuss how many of our dental school and residency orthodoxies are now very different than what was taught. He'll turn your thinking about Sleep Dentistry around, too. Traditionally, in orthodontics we align the teeth first, set the occlusion, get the jaws to balance and match the joints, hope the muscles will follow the form, and see about the airway last (if at all).

The Dawson Academy has been teaching for decades the importance of understanding occlusion in order to provide patients with predictable, functional, and long-lasting care. Practicing our philosophy of Complete Care Dentistry takes away the burden of having to re-do work by predictably treating the problem the first time around.
Are you spending time doing remakes more than your peers? Are you not getting what you need from the lab the first time?
Started by Dr. Peter Dawson, The Dawson Academy has been teaching for decades the importance of understanding occlusion in order to provide patients with predictable, functional, and long-lasting care. However, the Dawson Academy Philosophy of Compete Care Dentistry not only allows dentists to provide better care to patients, but allows them to spend more time outside the office doing what is most important to them.
Is your work-life balance up to par with what you envisioned? Are you overall satisfied with your career?
