Clinical Application of Head, Neck, and Airway Anatomy with Dissection

Friday-Saturday, June 9-10, 2023

Attendees will participate in an in-depth dissection of the head, neck, and airway over a two-day period. Working in two-member teams, each participant will dissect half of a cadaver head. The head, neck, and airway will be dissected to demonstrate the relationship of structures to orofacial pain conditions including TMD and sleep breathing disorders. The group will focus on osteology, the oral cavity, the digastric triangle, and the TM joint.
