Dr. Mayoor Patel receives the Haden-Stack Award 2018

Recently, at the 2018 American Academy of Craniofacial Pain (AACP) Annual Meeting in Kansas City, Mayoor Patel, DDS, MS, received the prestigious Haden-Stack Award.

 

The award is named after two major icons and pioneers of craniofacial pain and TMD dentistry, Dr. Jack Haden and Dr. Brendan Stack. The AACP created the Haden-Stack Award in 1998 to acknowledge those who have made significant contributions to the advancement of knowledge in the field of Craniofacial Pain and Temporomandibular Disorders.

Dr. Patel’s experience

Each year, Dr. Patel has dedicated as much of his time as possible to personally educating hundreds of dentists on TMD and craniofacial pain. And not only has he provided education to dentists, but he also mentored them. Through this he was able to help guide dentists in their journey into TMD, craniofacial pain and dental sleep medicine. He challenged them to become the best providers they possibly can be for their patients.

With his wealth of knowledge and easy-going teaching style, Dr. Patel maintains a unique ability to connect with people while also transferring knowledge in a very accessible way. It doesn’t matter what your personality type is, Dr. Patel connects with you and provides you with a learning experience that is unlike any other.

Going beyond just lecturing, Dr. Patel engages with other dentists throughout the process and asks the right questions to get his students to think and apply information to their own specific situation.

Dr. Patel also received over 15 credentials from major organizations related to orofacial pain or sleep apnea, which enables him to accurately and properly treat TMD, orofacial pain and sleep apnea in his dental office.

The next time you see Dr. Patel, make sure to congratulate him on this amazing accomplishment. Way to go, Dr. Patel!

International Board Member of British Society of Dental Sleep Medicine

Over the past year, I have been working closely with Dr. Aditi Desai and her team at the British Society of Dental Sleep Medicine (BSDSM) to educate dentists. Together we have created an effective lecture series to better provide advanced information for dentists in the UK.

Last summer I flew to London to lead an “Introduction to Dental Sleep Medicine” with the BSDSM. This group of dentists were so interested in dental sleep medicine that we worked together to ensure we could continue to provide these courses every year. In the introduction course, I worked with Dr. Desai on a module for temporomandibular joint dysfunction (TMD), craniofacial pain (CFP), and sleep bruxism (SB).

After working with Dr. Desai at the British Society of Dental Sleep Medicine, it is my pleasure to announce my new position as International Board. I look forward to working more with Dr. Desai, other board members and the dentists in London, as well as surrounding countries. Together we can continue to provide exceptional education on dental sleep medicine, TMD and craniofacial pain.

Join Dr. Patel and Nierman Practice Management in Las Vegas

Ready to complete more continuing education courses? Come and join us November 11-12th in Las Vegas for the Dental Sleep, TMJ, and Craniofacial Pain Symposium! In this symposium, we bring together the brightest minds in sleep and pain related specialties. Why? To bring their knowledge into education so that everyone can understand the roles different specialties play in not only sleep apnea, but TMD and Craniofacial Pain–even Tourette’s treatment. We join forces with experienced sleep and TMD dentists to gain the skills you need to build strong referral relationships in addition to growing your practice.

What We Will Learn

I know Las Vegas is a place to go for fun and warmth, but you will also be getting some of the best education possible. After each session, feel free to have your fun, but make sure you’re paying attention to this symposium–it’ll go a long way for your dental practice. This symposium is geared towards dental practices that are currently involved in sleep apnea treatment, or TMJ and craniofacial pain treatment, and are interested in growing their specialties. By working closely with the medical community, you can accomplish this and we can help.

The sessions will also include a detailed cross-coding breakout for more in-depth information on how to maximize your patient’s medical benefits for sleep apnea, TMD, implants/oral surgery, and other procedures. You should attend this sleep, TMD and Craniofacial Pain symposium to:

  • Increase your knowledge in sleep medicine, TMD and Pain.
  • Build strong referral relationships.
  • Bill medical insurance and increase case acceptance.

For more information you can visit my Lectures page or Nierman Practice Management. We look forward to seeing you all in Las Vegas November 11-12th for continuing education!

4 Day Sleep Course with AACP in San Diego

Hurry! Hurry! Are you ready for a 4-day sleep course with the American Academy of Craniofacial Pain (AACP) in San Diego? I know I am! What better way to learn about dental sleep medicine than on a trip to sunny California! While it won’t be all fun in the sun (we need to learn a lot in these short 4-days, too) I can ensure you that you will leave this mini-residency with more pep in your step because you will be ready to keep pushing through dental sleep medicine and the services available for your patients. Let’s take a look at what to expect in this 4-day sleep course with the AACP in San Diego September 28 – October 1, 2016.

Come Ready to Learn

Yes, this is a 4-day weekend course in sunny San Diego! In this sleep course with the AACP there will be lectures, hands-on workshops and case studies. By completing this mini-seminar you will receive approximately 38 CE credits, but hurry because enrollment is strictly limited to only 25 students!

In this mini-seminar you will pick up the knowledge and clinical skills required to assess and differentially diagnose commonly encountered temporomandibular disorders seen in a dental practice that might impact the success of treatment for a patient with a sleep breathing disorder, such as sleep apnea. You will also gain advanced medical and dental training to successfully treat patients. While learning these specific areas, you will also make progress toward fulfilling AACP fellowship and AGD Mastership requirements. Now that sounds like a win-win to me, doesn’t it?!

Training is provided by both dentists and physicians to increase the scope of understanding, as well as fostering the importance of a team approach to ensure the highest level of patient care possible. Remember, space is limited to only 25 students, so sign up now before it is too late! I hope to see many of you there!
