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.
My experience with The Dawson Academy started with a perfect storm in my practice. It was a combination of:
- I bought a practice that had a lot of patients with a long history of facial pain and TMJ problems.
- I was ill prepared to treat them, but most importantly is I was unconsciously incompetent. I didn't realize I didn't know what I was doing.

Dr. Dawson founded The Dawson Academy in 1979 as a way to educate dental professionals on the entire masticatory system using a method that he was successfully practicing in his office in St. Petersburg, Florida. His first book Evaluation, Diagnosis, and Treatment of Occlusal Problems, published in 1974, outlined methods for dental professionals to provide treatments that predictably solve patients’ problems. These methods formed the foundation for The Dawson Academy’s courses.

Through a global educational collaborative with our corporate partners at BioResearch Associates, along with their Asian distributors, I have had the unique opportunity to spend almost 2 weeks in the beautiful countries of India and Thailand, speaking on both TMD and the Dawson Academy philosophy of “The Concept of Complete Dentistry.” The similarities of these countries outweigh their differences; both rooted in culture, faith, respect, and loyalty, as is all of Asia.
