Part 1 - ONLINE
This part will be a blend of intense didactic and clinical components. The participants are encouraged to pre-check with the course coordinator to appropriately schedule patients for MAD insertion visit. Those students who do not have a patient are encouraged to join your classmates clinically treating these patients.
Pharmacology being a critical component of OFP training, reading material will be given in advance for review before this part.
The systematic clinical work up of OFP/Dental Sleep medicine cases will be reviewed prior to starting Day 2.
Patients already worked up with diagnosis of Myofascial pain should be appropriately scheduled for day 3.
All these sessions will have one on one clinical sessions with ample time for personal interactions with the faculty.
