  • Diagnosis of internal and external derangements
  • Classification of derangements
  • Splint construction and adjustment
  • T.M.J. medications and nutrition

    • Orthodontics including the A.L.F.
    • Re-treatment of T.M.D. previous orthodontic cases

"The course was hard work but extremely practical. Skip has a way of compartmentalizing things which make it easier to understand. Anyone interested in T.M.D. who wants a comprehensive oversight of how to diagnose and treat these often difficult patients will find the course more than helpful. I really enjoyed it. What a great way to spend a weekend!"

- Philip J E Lang L.D.S. R.C.S. (England), M.G.D.S, R.C.S.(England)
 

"Dr Truitt’s new classification system for T.M.D. greatly simplifies my diagnosis and treatment procedures. Once again a clear concise and comprehensive explanation and description of a complex clinical subject. Highly informative and instructive."

- Dr James Lewis M.O. USA
