UP TOPP Batch 3

UP-TOPP BATCH 3, A great time learning the ins and outs of Orofacial Pain and TMD. Integrating the lectures and scientific literature with clinical work on our patients.
How do you manage patients with co-morbid TMD and a neuropathic pain conditions? How do you distinguish if the myalgia is caused by a dental problem or if the headache is related to a TMD or not?
What sets UP-TOPP from other OFP-TMD programs is in learning the “whys” of patient management and not just the “hows.” That’s what makes for a good dentist!
Starting January 2018 we will offer a UP-TOPP distance modular program in the provinces. Minimum number of participants to start a program will be 15. So get in touch with us if you have a group who is interested. Message our secretariat Ms. May Presente ‭+63 998 959 3889‬ so we can start right away!

The objectives of the program are; to provide clinical training in the diagnosis and treatment of TMD & Orofacial Pain (OFP) and provide opportunities for research in the areas of TM joint disorders, masticatory muscle dysfunction and related facial pain.

We believe that there is a need for well trained General Dentists who will be able to treat TMD & OFP in the clinic, as well as excel in academic and research areas. As such, they will find a place in a full time or part time TMD practice collaborating with other specialties such as restorative dentistry, orthodontics, oral surgery and radiology and function as leaders of TMD teams in their own dental communities.

The First batch of UP TOPP is scheduled to begin on July 13, 2016. The venue is at the Centennial Room at the University of the…
