Dentists who treat patients with TMD, sleep disorders, and other types of orofacial pain are the primary target audience for this multi-disciplinary and inter-professional continuum. Because many physicians and other health care practitioners also treat orofacial pain patients, they are encouraged and welcome to attend this continuum. The purpose of the LSU Orofacial Pain Continuum™ is to establish a new category of CE for orofacial pain that is more comprehensive yet can be completed in a one year, 5-session C.E. program.
After completing this continuum, participants should be better able to recognize, evaluate, diagnose, manage and refer patients who have TMD, sleep disorders, and other types of orofacial pain.
This comprehensive, interactive continuum offers:
Before the first session and between each session, participants will have self-study assignments:
On Thursday evening, May 30, 2019, LSU will host a welcome reception for all attendees at our downtown host hotel. This reception will give participants an initial taste of New Orleans and its hospitality and an opportunity to meet and get to know the continuum faculty and other participants in a relaxed setting.
On Friday evening of the last session, February 14, 2020, LSU will host a dinner at a private dining room for the 2019-2020 LSU Orofacial Pain Continuum™ class and the course directors. At this dinner, the course directors will announce how the faculty will stay in touch with each continuum class. Each class member will receive a written verification of participation that is personally signed by each continuum director and acknowledges the comprehensive year of study and class work.
