"This course far exceeded my expectations! Timely cutting edge integrated multi system information that I feel I will be able to use Monday morning and great subject matter that I look forward to diving into at a later date. Well done!"

The stomatognathic system is the primary directional component behind an individual’s skeletal design, kinesemiotic behavior and patterned dorsolateral prefrontal cortex executive function. While the oral cavity represents the first part of the digestive tube, the stomatognathic system functionally prepares entrance into the alimentary tract so that salivation and propulsion of the alimentary bolus into the pharynx is non-interrupted. The position, orientation and symmetry, or lack of symmetry, of the human body, is directed by the bilateral involvement of the: temporal and mandibular bones, masticatory musculature, dental arches, and soft tissues of the oral cavity. These components of the stomatognathic system can alter the human body structural strength and spatial sense. Many stomatognathic diseases and dysfunctions are treated by dentists and maxillofacial surgeons, as well as otorhinolaryngologists. This symposium will provide an overview on how the stomatognathic system navigates the human body in space, as it assists in balancing patterns of asymmetrical structured support through orthocranial occlusion, orthogonal visual processing, and gnathologic orthopedics.

Live Stream courses will take place from 8am-5pm CT each day, and certificates of completion/CE credit will be awarded the following week after completion of the course evaluation survey and short post-test. For more information on whether your state/organization is approved for CE approval, please click on the "Accreditation" tab below. Live Stream courses will be engaging, interactive and include demonstration of objective testing and/or non-manual techniques, in addition to course attendees being able to ask questions throughout the course. All that’s needed on your end is reliable internet access, a webcam, microphone and speaker (or a smart phone can be used if you do not have a computer or laptop with this capability). The course manual will be shipped directly to you 1-2 weeks before the course. *International registrants will receive access to a digital version of the course manual. In addition, participants will receive access to the recording of the live stream course for 14 days to review the material, and re-watch any material that may have been missed due to connection issues. Those who attend in-person during a live streamed course will also receive access to the recording for 14 days. Extensions beyond this 14 day review are not available. ***Please note: In order to receive access to the recording for review, you must participate in person on the Live Stream course with your camera on for at least half of the course (8 hours). If you sign up for the course and do not participate in at least 8 hours of the live stream, you will not receive the recording and you will not be refunded. Also, once course manuals have been shipped (or emailed to international attendees), there will be no refunds for cancellations.***
