Last year's amazing speakers:

Dr. Ben Sutter

Dr. Ben Sutter will challenge what you know about occlusion. While some doubt the importance of occlusion in the dentists role and TMD, Dr. Sutter believes a protocol that is driven by technology and data serves both the dentist and the patient.

Dr. Mike Smith

Dr. Mike Smith will perform a case workup, live! This is part of his new study group which will launch at the conference. You will not want to miss this one.

Dr. Steven Olmos

Dr. Olmos will explain how to work up cases, and the triage necessary for a clear diagnosis of various primary headache conditions (migraine, tension type headache, cluster headache) from giant cell arteritis, trigeminal neuralgia, TMD and breathing disorders. He will explain how to handle difficult comorbidities such as Elhers-Danlos Syndrome. He will explain how to develop a well defined treatment plan for a predictable outcome. Essentially answering the questions; What are we treating to, and how do we know when we are done? 

Dr. Bahar Esmaili

The posture of the mandible is a reflection of vital reflexes including breathing and balance which are controlled by the Autonomic Nervous System ( ANS). The optimal alignment of the Cranio-Cervical-Mandibular system for treatment position can be determined using nasal airflow as a gauge and modulator of the ANS

Dr. Robert Kerstein

Dr. Kerstein, author of Computerized Occlusal Analysis Technology Applications in Dental Medicine, will discuss the latest features and technological advances made possible by the T-Scan Novus system. He will also discuss the current and pending research articles on computerized occlusal analysis.

Dr. Daniel Klauer

Step by step presentation to start a TMD and Sleep Practice. Dr. Klauer will outline everything from where to get a clinical education to business protocols to starting a TMD and Sleep practice. Also, where should your patients be coming from and how to stand out and make a name for yourself as a dentist in your community.

Dr. Marcelo Freire Matos

Temporomandibular arthropathies directly affect the intermaxillary orthopedic relationship and therefore interfere with occlusal stability. On the other hand, the occlusion itself is not a static mechanical relationship of the teeth, but an intricate neurophysiological and biomechanical phenomenon, whose secrets can be revealed by adequate biometric instrumentation.

Dr. Ray Becker

Dr. Ray Becker will discuss an efficient model he has implemented into his practice that is not only simple but lays out a clear pathway for you diagnostically and for the team. Dr. Becker’s model emphasizes clear communication with the patient on a level that they understand and demonstrates himself to be different than every other dentist by utilizing technologies like the BioPAK and the MLS Laser.

Dr. Kelly Wells

As a licensed Chiropractor (who is also certified in Myofunctional Therapy and Buteyko Breathing), Dr. Wells spends her days working with orthodontic patients helping them overcome or more importantly making sure that they don’t develop airway or TMJ problems. Come and hear how these important services can be added to your office to help optimize patient outcomes.

Dr. Charles Ferzli

Nasal airway function cannot be ignored by a dentist hoping to successfully treat breathing disorders during sleep. The form and function of the nasal airway can change your approach and prognosis, as well as guide you to the proper channels for referral or cross treatment.

Ryan Robinson

"Building an Empire: How to retain ownership in your GP practice while creating a $3M specialty practice"

Dr. Steve Carstensen

He will present groundbreaking work on the dentists role in assessing and improving the function of the nasal airway. Under the premise that without proper nasal function, a dental approach to OSA and sleep disordered breathing will be incomplete at best, Dr. Carstensen will give you the tools you need to bring the very best to your patients.

Dr. Michael Karegannes

The goal of this course is to recognize how other parts of the body might contribute to TMJ disorders. Dr. Mike will discuss manual and exercise techniques for the treatment of TMD.
Having interacted with Dentists for decades Dr. Mike knows how to work hand in hand with the dental community and to talk to Dentists

Dr. Maryam Motlaugh

The incorporation of classic neuromuscular principals has been streamlined by Dr. Maryam Motlaugh and her company MyoAligner. Dr. Motlaugh will give a systematic and detailed approach to finding Neuromuscular balance between the mandible and maxilla and how a clinician can quickly and reliably address issues of the craniofacial muscles and nerves.

Dr. Lynn Lipskis

Developing a treatment plan for orthodontics can be complex. Dr. Lipskis will walk through the considerations for including airway into your workup. Proper considerations include, position correction, cant correction, myofunctional therapy, appliances, and case finishing.

Dr. Eric Phelps

Dr. Phelps will be lecturing on the topic of airway and dental sleep medicine. Showing examples of actual cases involving JVA, and Rhinometry. Dr. Phelps has uniquely positioned himself and his practice to screen and diagnose patients for sleep related breathing disorders.

Expert Live Panel

While all of our speakers and attendees have strong opinions about their own treatment philosophy, we believe that EVERY clinician who objectively diagnoses before he or she treats patients is ultimately on the same side.

Mentor Appointments

This has been a very well received activity that we are extremely proud to offer our clients. Sit down with John Radke, Mike Smith, Greg Kamyszek, Dr. Kerstein, Ray Becker, and others one-on-one and ask them anything.


There will be fun activities and events planned for evenings and at your whim. Milwaukee has some of the finest museums, sports venues, and Lake Michigan offering endless opportunities outside of the conference.
