Course Description:

This course is designed for beginners who have treated fewer than 5 patients. The only equipment needed to begin treating patients the next day is a gauge to measure protrusion of the mandible, and this will be provided to each attendee.  Proper case selection will be emphasized to ensure a high success rate so that attendees will be sufficiently competent to attend the next level course. Selection of the oral appliance is limited to one (the Somnodent) to make treatment planning easy. A sample appliance will be provided to each attendee to demonstrate to patients.
