Phantom Tooth Pain presented by Clifford Chow, DDS
Phantom Tooth Pain has been defined as tooth pain or pain at an extraction site in the absence of any clinical or radiographic pathology.

The course will cover recognition, taxonomy, diagnosis, etiology, pathophysiology and treatment of Phantom Tooth Pain.

No matter what treatment system you use, keys to orthodontic success by BOTH general dentists and specialists will be discussed.

The goal is to present simple steps you can take to build confidence in your IT system so you can avoid a security nightmare of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services showing at your office for major security breach. HIPAA compliance, back-up systems, internet gateways security and email will be presented.
