The Course

Cranio-mandibular Disorders, Therapeutic position obtained by the Controlled Mandibular Repositioning method (C.M.R.)

General objectives:
Dr. Alain Landry’s course offers the finest and most recent schools of thought in North America, Europe and Japan. This program enables dentists to acquire new knowledge and develop new competencies which they can incorporate into the heart of their practices for the well-being of their patients.


This continuum is for dentists who want to treat more complex cases of Cranio-Mandibular Disorders (C.M.D.). Teaching includes the essential concepts of Professor Slavicek, electronic condylography, computerized cephalometry with an emphasis on Controlled Mandibular Repositioning (C.M.R.) a method developed by Dr. Alain Landry in 1994 and subject of his Master’s thesis in 2005.

Most schools of thought on C.M.D. have focused on the treatment of neuro-muscular disorders. In C.M.D. cases, with regard to internal derangements (I.D.) and degenrative joint disease (D.J.D.), these approaches are ineffective and sometimes ill-advised.

For this reason, Controlled Mandibular Repositioning was developed. This method dramatically increases the success rate of internal derangement cases and of degenerative joint disease cases.
