Examination and Records is one of the most important dental courses that a dentist will master on the path to complete dentistry. The cornerstone of the Dawson philosophy begins with a comprehensive examination and the gathering of accurate records. As Dr. Dawson says “every great treatment plan comes from a well organised records appointment”.
Through lecture and hands-on, you will learn a complete examination and record gathering process. You will devise a treatment plan, using your comprehensive records to make a thorough diagnosis. You'll master how to take excellent clinical photographs, a facebow record, the easiest, simplest and most predictable way to take a centric relation bite record as well as muscle examination and TMJ analysis.

“I remember sitting in the Comprehensive Examination and Records module, with Dr Buckle describing the relationship between the teeth, jaws and muscles, when suddenly everything I had learned in the last 2 decades suddenly fitted into place! I always describe this as my light bulb moment!”
“I learned how to take good records of a patient and how to be organized and thorough in what I do. The use of the Dawson checklists and protocols helps me in my daily practice.”
“We were introduced to the theory and tools needed to do a systematic and thorough examination. We learned how to locate centric relation and why CR is paramount in treatment planning. This means that I can give my patients a better and complete treatment, which is the main goal in my work. I wish we had been taught this at university.”
