I am excited to announce that I have partnered with Terry Bennett, DMD, to bring you all a new take on continuing dental education: Ben-Pat Institute. Together with Dr. Bennett, we will be providing case-based didactic learning to advance craniofacial pain and dental sleep medicine. 

How Ben-Pat Institute works

We provide education for dentists to advance their practices in the areas of orofacial pain, temporomandibular disorders (TMD) and dental sleep medicine. Our methods might look a little different than what you are used to, which is what we aim for. With our education courses, we use case-based didactic learning styles. 

Through case-based didactic learning, you can better appreciate the thoughts behind each clinical cause you may find. It can also help you have a better understanding of the examination and diagnosis process, and the treatment plan. 

Our goal

Dr. Bennett and I bring to the table almost 50 years of combined clinical experience in orofacial pain, TMD and dental sleep medicine. We hope that together we can provide you with an educational program that allows for flexibility, convenience and travel cost savings through two virtual and two in-person sessions. Learn more about our hybrid educational program.

We want to help you build confidence in your diagnostic skills while also preparing and understanding treatment plans. Our hands-on components can help you gain the skills you need to successfully implement orofacial pain, TMD and dental sleep medicine in your practice. 

At Ben-Pat Institute, we look forward to being your partners in orofacial pain, TMD and dental sleep medicine education. Please “like” our page on Facebook and “follow” us on Instagram for great tips, information and upcoming events!
