An educative presentation which oral health care professional should be aware.
Good understanding of material I will keep for additional information that I need in near future.
The course gave me a lot of information about things I didn’t know about. It was an excellent program which covered the overall of OMT. A great experience with perfect exposure of content
As an RDH looking to get a little more information on this topic it was great!
As a Licensed Massage Therapist, this course in invaluable for my deeper research into TMJ disorders and Sleep Apnea to help not only my clients but several family members. I'll also be taking her other course called "Orofacial Myofunctional Disorders & Their Impact On Health" and keeping an eye out for any future courses.
