BSSCMD Study Day Friday 7 February 2014

Case finishing techniques – 3rd BSSCMD Study Day.

Holiday Inn Welbeck street, London..

Working on a Multi Disciplinary Basis.

This meeting was attended by 34 delegates, divided equally between dentists and body therapists. Dr Richard Dean gave an overview of Temporo-Mandibular Joint Dysfunction (TMD) diagnosis and splint construction. Ken Gordon, osteopath, explained his input and the importance of working as a team.

Dr Andre Hedger gave an excellent presentation outligning how he selected different medical disciplines to support his work on patients, many of whom had very differing symptoms including TMJ problems and movement disorders.

Dr Robert Chatfield followed on with the same emphasis on a multifactorial approach. He works closely with his osteopath & counseller, John Vesey, and craniosacral therapist, Sheila Camino. He explained the four elements that make up the holistic view to treatment, namely, physical, biochemical, electromagnetic and emotional.

The day finished with a presentation by Dr Richard Casson and his kinesiologist, Katie Rossi. Richard has suffered two strikes in the past two years and it is his determination and Katie’s expertise that has enabled Richard to make a remakable recovery despite hearing disparaging comments from mainstream medical professionals. He was convinced that the patient must want and believe that they can get better before the real healing process can begin.

Richard is to be congratulated for organising yet another very worthwhile study day.

2013 in review

The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2013 annual report for this blog.

Here’s an excerpt:

A New York City subway train holds 1,200 people. This blog was viewed about 6,400 times in 2013. If it were a NYC subway train, it would take about 5 trips to carry that many people.
