Summer School 2023

Occlusion medicine: facing complexity with interdisciplinarity

Professor Rudolf Slavicek was once asked ironically: “How can one talk that much over 32 tiny teeth?”.  The serious answer to this provocative question is to be found in the complexity of the masticatory system and its reciprocal interaction with the body, nervous system, and psyche. The program of Summer School 2023 acknowledges the centrality of oral health and function by tackling relevant questions with an interdisciplinary approach to diagnosis and therapy. In addition, this year, the classical and the modern will meet in our dedicated theoretical and hands-on sessions on digital techniques for occlusion medicine.
