Attaining my fellow was an exciting experience that will help to continue to set me apart from other dentists.
Austin, TX (PRWEB) June 12, 2013
The Las Vegas Institute of Advanced Dental Studies (LVI Global) has officially awarded Austin dentist Dr. John Schmid the designation of Fellow. The LVI Fellow distinction is given when a dentist has completed LVI’s Core Series, demonstrating that they have mastered the clinical knowledge, principles, and skills necessary to provide comprehensive cosmetic and neuromuscular dentistry treatment.
The Fellow distinction is only awarded to dentists who have successfully completed a comprehensive exam covering all of the skills and techniques taught in the LVI Core Series (Core I – Core VII), which includes a minimum of 278 continuing education hours of training in advanced dental aesthetics and neuromuscular science.
“Attaining my fellow was an exciting experience that will help to continue to set me apart from other dentists,” says Dr. Schmid. In a recent press release, LVI Global stated: “Dr Schmid has set himself apart by choosing the path of lifelong learning.”
Neuromuscular dentistry is concerned with the optimal alignment of the temporomandibular joints (TMJ) – the delicate jaw joints that are responsible for opening and closing your mouth. When these joints are out of alignment, they can cause painful headaches and other symptoms. Often, worn-down or crooked teeth contribute to misalignment, making many neuromuscular issues both aesthetic and functional in nature.
By undergoing elective, continuous training at LVI, Dr. Schmid has proven his commitment to quality dental care and a desire to master complex aesthetic and neuromuscular procedures in order to provide the best possible care for his dental patients.
