OVERVIEW
The goal of the Clinical Course is to relate the concepts and principles of occlusion learned in the past to the treatment of the normal patient as well as the patient with damaged dentition. The purpose of this course is two-fold. First, the course is a continuation of basic occlusion concepts and their relationship to general dentistry. Second, the course will introduce disorders of the natural dentition. The role of occlusion in the diagnosis and treatment of these disorders will be explained. Techniques include occlusal splint appliance and pre-restorative occlusal adjustment will be presented.

OVERVIEW FOR PART I
The first part is designed to aid the restorative dentist in providing more comprehensive diagnostic, treatment planning and clinical treatment skills. The emphasis is to introduce the clinical aspects of disorders of the natural dentition and the different concepts of Occlusal Adjustment.
