Whether you are driven by a passion to better help your patients or you are working towards a fellowship and need quite a few CE credits, you should consider our Orofacial Pain Continuum. The program is divided into 5 weekend-long sessions over the course of a year. Each session takes place at LSU School of Dentistry in New Orleans and
features renowned guest lecturers.

We understand that a progam of this size is a commitment, of both time and expense,
which is why we allow sessions to be "made up" in subsequent continuums and offer a payment plan.

The next step on your educational journey awaits!
If you have additional questions, please do not hesitate to contact our office. 

"The Orofacial Pain Continuum at LSU gave me confidence to take a proper history of my patients
and address their concerns. I’m glad it didn’t promote any particular device, philosophy,
or technique – it’s based on the science of anatomy and physiology.  The single most useful and
interesting section was the detailed dissection weekend –
I had forgotten more than I thought since dental school!"

- Steve Carstensen, DDS

"I would recommend the Continuum for everybody, who is trully interested in the health of patients. I am myself general dentist with interest in functional problem patients and I would say that not only I, but my patients certainly benefitted from this continuum.
I have told friends and colleagues, the Dawson Academy changed the way I view dentistry,
LSU's Orofacial Pain Continuum changed the way I view my patients."

- Hana Leino Pastrnakova, DDS
