OFP/TMD and Dental Sleep Medicine Program

Ben-Pat Institute is taking a new approach to providing continuing dental education to dentists and their teams across the country. Through a hybrid approach, our program allows for flexibility, convenience and travel cost savings.

Dr. Mayoor Patel

3 ways to attend.

1The first option is to attend all sessions in a live setting. This is because many dentists feel that being there in person is the best learning experience possible.

2 The second option we call it a hybrid. It includes two sessions that are virtual and interactive and two sessions that are in-person. This means you can get the lectures and learn from the comfort of your own home, and still participate in both the TMD and sleep hands-on portion of the course at the in-person sessions.

3 Additionally, the third option is to go all virtual. Attending all four sessions virtually from the comfort of your own home may be a more convenient and cost effective option for some dentists. Unfortunately, though, you won’t be able to participate in the hands-on learning portion of the sessions. However, you will have access to a live video feed when these exercises are explained and performed.

What you will learn.

  • Understand the importance of anatomy and neuroanatomy as it applies to pain and sleep.
