Dental Occlusion: It Can Make You or Break You!
Having treated several thousand patients for various dental related problems, Dr. DeWitt Wilkerson’s expertise has led him to be an extremely popular educator and leader in Dentistry. He has trained over 4,000 dentists through hands-on workshops with the Dawson Academy for Advanced Dental Studies, where he serves as a senior lecturer and Director of Dental Medicine. He previously served as President of the American Equilibration Society, the leading organization in the world for the study of dental occlusion (bite) and Temporomandibular Disorders. Dr. Wilkerson’s work emphasizes restorative and esthetic (cosmetic) procedures, and he is adept at doing “extreme makeovers” as well as simpler smile enhancement procedures. A perfectionist, he is meticulously dedicated to both the art and science of giving people a beautiful smile. He currently serves on the Board of Directors for the American Academy for Oral and Systemic Health (AAOSH).
Dr. Wilkerson will lecture on dental occlusion, covering such topics as analyzing joint position & condition, screening for parafunction and treatment planning to achieve occlusal stability.
