Orofacial Pain Academy – GSID Winter School “International TMD Camp”
December 11-15, 2023 – Marina di Carrara
The challenge for the winter School of the Orofacial Pain Academy/Italian Study Group on Orofacial Pain and Temporomandibular Disorders (GSID)is to educate a master class of alumni under both clinical and research aspects. In this seventh edition of the international Residency Program, the outstanding faculty (hundreds of medline papers and decades of clinical experience will be on the desk summing up the works of all teachers) and participants from all over the world are going to interact for a widespread diffusion of clinical knowledge and for designing future researches in the field of temporomandibular disorders and bruxism.
As the scientific coordinator, I will never forget the first editions, with the ending moments that define them at a glance: new friends who, despite the flight schedules and their willingness to rejoin their loved ones, almost begged for some extra time!
An entire Monday-to-Friday week, with super-teachers delving deep into the TMD and bruxism practice, is the best available option to see how actually easy is the clinical practice in a field that is often perceived as unnecessarily complicated. During the theoretical lectures and the interactive discussions, participants will learn the TMJ anatomy, understand the etiology of TMDs, summarize the clinical guidelines, read MRIs, talk about the prosthodontic and orthodontic implications in TMD patients, approach the multiple-P treatment framework, discuss the behind the scenes of the bruxism consensus papers, increase their basic research knowledge.
Hands-on sessions on patients, also featuring some first visit assessments, will reinforce the concept that most TMD symptoms are due to an emotional-driven muscle overload of the stomatognathic system, in which a host response determines the different clinical features and time frame of first onset. With about 20 patients “live”, receiving or controlling oral appliances, undergoing arthrocentesis, and/or being counseled, it is hard to imagine how to give and receive more.
I guess there is enough to define a one-and-only educational program in dentistry. I’ll be really looking forward to meet you for another of the Academy’s STEP (Sharing, Teaching, Education, Peer-to-Peer) experiences…and to deliver our main “teaching”: when easy things seem complicated, change teachers, and choose the ones who WALK THE TALK!
Waiting for you in Marina di Carrara, Italy, from December 11th to 15th, 2023!
