What is a Mini Residency?

Continuing education, training and resources for the dental healthcare profession.

A Mini Residency for TMJ (Temporomandibular Joint) doctors is a specialized training program designed to provide in-depth education and practical skills related to the diagnosis, treatment, and management of temporomandibular joint disorders and related craniofacial pain conditions. This type of program is typically shorter in duration compared to traditional residencies, often spanning a few weeks or weekends, making it more accessible for busy professionals seeking to enhance their expertise. During the Mini Residency, TMJ doctors receive advanced instruction from experienced practitioners and experts in the field, engage in hands-on workshops, case discussions, and possibly even clinical observations or supervised patient interactions.

The goal is to equip participants with specialized knowledge and practical techniques that can be immediately applied to their clinical practice, helping them provide improved care to patients suffering from TMJ and craniofacial pain issues.

You will leave this course prepared to treat TMD and Sleep Disordered Breathing at a level you didn’t even know existed. No other CE program has delivered results like this one. Dr. Olmos’ researched/evidenced based systems added $1,000,000 of production to our practice within 12 months. This will be the best investment you’ve ever made in your practice.

We have implemented Dr. Olmos’ TMD/Sleep and Ortho protocols for almost one year now. This approach has considerably raised the precision of our diagnosis, the speed of treatment and has consistently produced predictable resolution of our patient’s conditions. Implementing Dr. Olmos’ protocols has elevated our good track record to great.

The TMJ & Sleep Therapy mini – residency was a game changer for me in how I evaluate and treat my entire patient base. I’ve always known there was a “blind-spot” in my evaluation and management of bruxers and patients with facial pain. Dr. Olmos’ course taught me more than I could ever imagine about chronic pain, airway and breathing concerns and bruxism. Most important, the material learned is supported by an unimaginable amount of researched literature references.
