The last occlusion course you will ever need

Dr Barry Glassman

In his first UK appearance since 2019, Dr Barry Glassman is returning to the UK this year to lead a two-day seminar on occlusion and parafunction. 

Are you currently using conventional night guards or repositioning appliances to protect your patients whose diurnal and/or nocturnal activity is causing dental damage, threatening your dentistry, or contributing to pain or dysfunction?

S4S is delighted to announce that Dr Barry Glassman, an internationally recognised authority on the subject of occlusion and pain management, will be returning to the UK this September to lead a two-day seminar on occlusion and parafunction – his first since 2019!

The course takes a new look at occlusion, equipping you with both the theoretical knowledge and the vital practical skills you need to successfully help your patients who are suffering.

Whether this is your first Bruxism course, or you have attended others before, the content is suitable for any GDP.

With the first day focused on theory, day two sees Dr Glassman offering practical advice from his experience in the construction, fitting and adjustment of occlusal splints.
