Upcoming Dental Education Meeting at Montano Orthodontics

Posted · Add Comment

In an effort to reach out to the local dentists and aid them in staying current in advancements of information and technology, Montano Orthodontics hosts a continuing education course every few months. Our next one will be this coming Thursday.

The title of this week’s course is “Avoiding Failures: Fundamental Occlusion.” Failures can destroy a dental practice. We must have predicability in everyday practice. Esthetic dentistry has taken the world by storm. Function has never been more important than in this new environment. Function and esthetics should not be two disciplines; they should be blended together to form healthy, beautiful, and stable results. Using time-proven principles, this course shows the doctors how to simplify their understanding of occlusion, and arms them not only with the clinical information needed for predictability, but also the diagnostic thought process to better treatment plan their cases.


In this session they will:

– know how to avoid the #1 failure in their dental practice

– learn the gold standard of function

– understand the “must know” principles of occlusion

– know with confidence where to start every functional case

– learn how to predictably take an accurate bite

– learn a system of TMJ diagnosis to apply to all patients


Dr. Bo Bruce will be presenting this course via a live webinar. This seminar will be broadcast directly to our office allowing us the capability to interact directly with the speaker via a live Q&A period at the end of the presentation.

Dr. William “Bo” Bruce received his D.M.D. degree from the Medical University of South Carolina in 1998. Subsequently, he completed a one-year residency training in St. Petersburg.
