Speaker: Dr. Jose Luis Ruiz


Every Dentist should be an expert in managing occlusion, we deal with it on everything we do! “Occlusal Disease” is so prevalent and insidious; it is responsible for most restorative failures and no less destructive and costly to the patient than decay or periodontal disease. Treating it could be a great benefit to our patients, as well as a hugely untapped profit center.


Upon completion of this presentation you will know:


  • Why it is so important to treat occlusal disease if we want our patients to keep their teeth for a life time.

  •  How to implement occlusal treatment into an overall oral treatment.

  • The symptoms and different stages of occlusal disease.

  • When to use a semi-adjustable articulator and why it has great importance.

  • When to use a CR bite and a practical technique to take a CR bite.

  • A simple and practical system for occlusal equilibration.

  • How to educate patients about occlusal disease for excellent treatment acceptance.

  • How to make occlusal treatment profitable for a highly ethical practice.


Dr. Ruiz is the Director of the Los Angeles Institute of Clinical Dentistry and Course Director of numerous CE Courses at University of Southern California. He is an Honorary Clinical Professor at Warwick University in England and member of the editorial board for Dentistry Today. He has published several research papers as well as many clinical articles on adhesive dentistry, occlusion and esthetic dentistry.  Dr. Ruiz has been practicing in Los Angeles for over 20 years. His focus is on treating complex Cosmetic, Rehabilitation, and Implant cases.
