Teaching Bite Splint Therapy

My learning journey with bite splint therapy started in 2002 when I took the second level course at the Pankey Institute. . . this is a class that really tied some concepts together for me and gave me both a rationale and a method for helping patients with occlusal trauma (bite and/or TMJ jaw joint distress).  What I had previously intuited was a fundamental understanding now became science, and my passion for creating comfort for others was ignited!

It is a distinct honor to  have been asked again –  to be asked to teach the Essentials of Bite Splint Therapy at the Pankey Institute.  In July 2015, I along with two of my favorite people, George Platt of Little Rock and Mike Rolfes of Cincinnati, fulfilled the Pankey motto of Quid Pro Quo; giving back the learning to the continuous cycle of dentists who strive to make this profession more predictable, more expansive, and more satisfying.
