NIDS CE - TMJ, Sleep, Occlusion, and Ortho: The Inseperable Truths

Presented by Dr. Daniel Klauer

Teibel's Restaurant, Schererville, Wednesday, January 18, 2023

Please join us at Teibel's for a great meal and an excellent presentation. In this lecture, Dr. Daniel Klauer, Clinical Director of the TMJ & Sleep Therapy Centre, will be sharing how he created a TMJ & Sleep scratch start niche practice in South Bend, IN. He will cover what every dentist needs to know about screening for TMJ and Sleep issues in their patients and what to do upon seeing these issues. He will review the various technologies and treatment modalities he utilizes in his practice (lasers, CBCT, PRF, IO Scanners, and more). Dr. Klauer will highlight practice management topics regarding leadership, team culture, and creating an unparalleled patient experience. This lecture will be great for dental students, residents, and faculty and it will include a special opportunity for all attendees.

Our new sponsor, Core Scientific, will be attending with special giveaways in exchange for your scrap metal - so bring it with you. We will also hear from the current CDS President Dr. Michael Durbin about the upcoming Midwinter Meetings in Chicago and we will present the IUN Dental Hygiene and Assisting students with scholarships from NIDS.
