Clinical Occlusion Fundamentals Hands-on Workshop

June 2 @ 7:30 am - 5:00 pm

$500.00 – $1350.00

Sunday, June 2nd, 2024

8:00 am – 5:00 pm

Location: Stevenson Dental Education Teaching Center in San Dimas, CA

Speaker: Richard Stevenson DDS

CEs: 8 hands-on

AGD Subject Code: 180 (Occlusion)

This course is for dentists only with limited seating!

Tickets will be available beginning April 1st


The primary focus of this course will be on understanding how to diagnose and treat patients with occlusal issues, and when it’s best to refer to the oral facial pain specialist. We will address common unanticipated events like chipped restorations, and why some patients have anterior wear only vs posterior wear. A workflow algorithm will be presented which allows for more predictable outcomes. During the hands-on portion, participants will learn how to take an accurate CR record and an esthetically derived facebow.  A detailed color handbook is included in the course.


  • Wear patterns
  • CR records
  • Facebow records
  • When to treat in MIP
  • When to refer
  • Dental armamentaria



At the conclusion of this course, participants will be able to:

  1. Appraise an existing occlusion for issues that may complicate treatment.
  2. Apply an algorithm to each patient which will clearly define when a CR record is essential.
  3. Formulate a treatment flow which integrates occlusion concepts which reduce premature restoration failures.
