Some people get occlusion straight away, and others take much longer. This is why I am excited about offering Occlusion as an online course, so you can re-watch videos as many times as you want to. You can learn at your own pace, pause to take notes or even refresh your memory by watching a topic again.
This course will allow you to incorporate predictable occlusal techniques into your clinical practice.
The course is broken down into modules for ease of understanding and delivery.
Here is a short list of the modules covered:
- Fundamentals of Occlusion
- Practical Occlusion
- Clinical Occlusion
- Practical / Clinical Occlusion Videos
- Supporting literature
- Final Exam

The course includes numerous clinical case presentations; over 3 hours of practical clinical demonstration videos of occlusal techniques are included as well as a wealth of reading materials, including lots of supporting literature such as articles or texts that I have chosen to support the course. These are materials that I advise you read that support what we are going to cover during the course and will enhance your understanding of the subject.
There are many opinions, with some more valid than others, so I will help you to form a balanced view, and I will give you my opinion on which techniques are applicable for different situations.
In addition to the above, I will provide you with some of the assessment forms we use in our practice, which you can then use use with your patients.
