Event description
This hands-on dental CE course is about seeing and understanding anatomic and systemic problems that damage the dentitions of patients.

About this Event

The second step on the pathway to mastery of dental occlusion is acquiring the knowledge to diagnose and treatment plan solutions to the systemic problems that plague patients and cause many of their dental problems. Occlusion 201 builds upon scientific information learned in Occlusion 101 and utilizes this information to diagnose dental, orofacial and airway problems.

This course has been built around giving students a clearer vision and broader perspective on the states of health and disease in their patients. What do your patients faces and dentitions really look like? How are they different than those with optimal oral health? How can patients help themselves and how can we help them to acheive optimal oral health?

What do I SEE when I examine my patients? What do you SEE? Dental schools teach us to see pathologies including dental caries, periodontal disease, oral infections and gross malocclusions. They usually do not teach students to see bigger picture systemic problems. This “blind spot” in our education has allowed the insurance industry to dictate “usual and customary” standards of care which has limited innovation and trapped the majority of dentists into performing“single tooth dentistry.

This course is about teaching the dentisst to SEE the reality right in front of their eyes Because when you can SEE you can diagnose and when you can diagnose you can treat. And when you can diagnose you may be able to figure out how to prevent. Furthermore, when you develop these skills you may just be able to create your ideal dental practice!

Learning Objectives:

  • Develop an improved new patient examination process
  • To be able to identify normal and abnormal occlusion and facial form
  • To be able to use the prophy/case discussion visit to improve the patients understanding of their health problems.
  • To be able to use photographs, anterior jigs, mounted diagnostic casts and x-rays to understand and communicate structural and systemic oral health problems.
  • To understand the basics of diagnosing and treating pharyngo-orofacial problems with occlusal splints.
  • To understand the basics of using dental and medical specialists as “subcontractors” in the design and rehabilitation of the oral and systemic health solutions.
  • To understand the dentist’s role in providing lifelong oral maintenance and health.

Biography:

Dr. Jay Harris Levy, DDS is an internationally recognized clinician and speaker. Dr. Levy’s courses emphasize the physiology anatomy, biomechanics and restoration of the dental occlusion. He maintains a private dental practice in Portland, Oregon, which focuses on occlusion, restorative dentistry, TMD and airway disorders. In 2018 Dr. Levy founded Levy Occlusion Seminars.

Dr. Levy received a Bachelors of Science Degree in Mechanical Engineering from Union College and his Doctor of Dental Surgery degree from New York University where he went on to teach restorative dentistry as an Assistant Professor. He maintained a private dental practice in New York City for 17 years and then moved to Oregon. At Oregon Health and Science University (OHSU) he developed a sensory-physiology research program that explored the mechanosensory mechanisms that underlay mastication. While teaching restorative dentistry at the School of Dentistry he completed a two-year postdoctoral fellowship in neurophysiology and he received a Certificate of Training in Human Investigations from the School of Medicine. He served on the teaching faculty at OHSU as an Assistant Professor in the Department of Biological Structure and Function, Department of Integrative Biosciences, Department of Prosthodontics and the Department Community Dentistry.

Dr. Levy’s engineering background, neurophysiology research and years of clinical practice and teaching enable him to take occlusion education to the next level.
