Dr. Barry Glassman Seminar Website
The general dental seminars have been designed to offer a safe academic atmosphere in which to explore ways to protect your patients from the parafunctional forces that can be destructive to the entire craniomandibular cervical complex, including the destruction of the very dentistry that you provide. The dental sleep medicine seminar series not only teaches the basic evidenced based science of sleep medicine, but also, with an eye toward the ever changing world of health care distribution, fully preparing you for the difficult implementation of dental sleep medicine into your general dental practice.
After teaching this seminar series for over 15 years, Dr. Glassman has announced an altered schedule for 2017. There will be courses taught with Dr. John Viviano in Dental Sleep Medicine and also Dr. Glassman will be teaching his popular, life changing TMD and Occlusion course in Toronto again in 2017.
Dr. Glassman is pleased to announce that he will be giving a series of courses in Fort Washington, PA at the new and beautiful Dental Future Center (www.dentalfuturecenter.com). This extremely well appointed center creates an ideal setting for our two day courses. Fort Washington is about 40 minutes from the Philadelphia International Airport and special rates are available at near-by hotels for group discounted accommodations. Course information is available on all courses here on this site, and registration links will send you to the Dental Future Center for on line registrations. This year we will be doing two Introduction to Sleep Medicine courses, one TMD and Occlusion course, and our very popular and unique Advanced Dental Sleep Medicine course at the Dental Future Center. It should be noted that the popular and well reviewed Viewing Day at the Allentown Sleep and Pain Center given the day prior to the Introduction to Dental Sleep Medicine courses in Fort Washington remain available to the first EIGHT people who choose to register for the viewing day. Further information can be obtained by going to the Seminars tab above, and navigating to the Introduction to Dental Sleep Medicine page.
Dr. Glassman will be dedicating the bulk of his time to reading and writing. Dr. Glassman plans to complete the writing of his book that he is co-authoring with Dr. Micah Sadigh in 2017. The book explores the myths of dentistry that have been passed down through the ages and delves deeply into the damage these myths do to both us as professionals and ultimately to our patients. Occlusion and TMD have become controversial subjects for no good reason. Dr. Sadigh’s and Dr. Glassman’s book will review how and why this happened, and at the same time look closely at our dental education and how the process has negatively affected so many in the profession.

- Practical TMD and Occlusion for the General Dentist

July 13-24, 2017 The British Dental Society, London, England
- RELEVANT AND PRACTICAL
Take back valuable information to immediately and positively impact your practice and patient health immediately. Dr. Glassman refers to the “tortuous path” his CE took him to arrive at truths that have positively effected his outlook on dentistry, his relationships with patients, and occlusal concepts and sleep medicine concepts that eliminate the “myths.” Teaching these concepts helps attendees in their lives and in their daily practices immediately.
- EVIDENCED BASED AND CLINICAL
Explore ways to assure that the science guides the “art” of clinical dentistry. While we are no better than the science, we know that practicing only evidenced based dentistry will hand cuff us and not allow for comprehensive therapy. Science without art is ineffective; art without science is practicing voodoo. Learning to balance the two to make informed risk benefit decisions is the key to successful, fulfilling dentistry in the fields of dental sleep medicine, and general dentistry adding appropriate occlusal, joint and muscle concepts to everyday practice.
- HONEST AND REAL
Understand not just the importance of occlusal concepts but also the more important concept of when they matter.
Conquer the pain/restorative disconnect and simplify therapy.
Learn the truth about Dental Sleep Medicine. It is not simply the science that is taught, but the critically important model change that is required to implement sleep medicine successfully. This honest and real approach increases the likelihood of your success by not sugarcoating the potential, but clearly reviewing ALL the challenges that face dentistry as it moves into sleep medicine.
- ENTERTAINING AND EDUCATIONAL
Benefit from Dr. Glassman’s unique style and advanced training by educational experts. Embrace the small class settings which put the emphasis on you and create a safe learning environment. Gain from the post course support.
- CONTINUAL SUPPORT
Your attendance makes you a member of Dr. Glassman’s academic family. Dr. Glassman will make every attempt to respond to your questions about concepts or individual patient issues via email providing whenever possible timely answers to specific questions and patient care support.
There will be links given that provide you not with simply the abstracts, but the literature that supports the science you are taught, as well as folders with case reports, sample office forms, patient and referral letters, etc.
