Physiologic Dentistry: Airway, Sleep, TMJ and Restorative Dentistry
Jeffrey Hindin, DDS and John Tucker, DMD

May 15, 2023 @ 9:00 pm - 10:00 pm EDT

This course is designed to help Dentists approach various aspects of dentistry affected by airway issues.

Doctors Hindin and Tucker will present a unique way of practicing dentistry based on the patient’s physiology and airway health.  Various screening, treatment options, and bite registrations for oral appliance therapy for the OSA patient will be discussed.

Learning Objectives:

  • Developing treatment plans based on function, physiology and airway
  • Evaluating patient complaints
  • Creating plans for practice flow with sleep and TMD patients

Dr. John Tucker has maintained a private practice in Erie, Pennsylvania since 1982. He is a graduate of the University of Pittsburgh School of Dental Medicine. Dr. Tucker has a special interest in the treatment of obstructive sleep apnea and has been actively treating patients in the Tri-State Erie area for the past 10 years. Dr. Tucker is a Diplomate of the American Board of Dental Sleep Medicine and a member of the American Academy of Sleep Medicine. Since he began actively educating other dentists 7 years ago, he has become one of the most sought after speakers on Dental Sleep Medicine. His unique teaching style of relating his successes and failures helps his students understand that implementation will have its issues, and success requires passion and commitment.

Dr. Jeffrey Hindin: A graduate of SUNY at Buffalo School of Dental Medicine and the Buffalo VAMC residency program, Dr, Hindin received a certificate from Brookdale Hospital/NYU Maxi Course in Oral Implantology and from the Behavioral Medicine Research and Training Foundation in biofeedback.

Dr. Hindin practices general dentistry with an emphasis on the treatment of craniofacial pain, TMD and sleep disorders incorporates biofeedback modalities into patient care. He is conducting clinical research into the relationship between performance, splint therapy, physiological function and heart rate variability. Dr. Hindin is a co-author of the Proof of Concept Study of an Oral Orthotic to Reduce Tic severity in Chronic Tic Disorder and Tourette Syndrome recently published. Dr. Hindin has published articles on the use of heart rate variability in dentistry and use of biofeedback modalities. Dr. Hindin has lectured internationally on TMD, sleep, restorative dentistry, airway and the use of Heart rate variability.

He is a founding board member of the American Academy of Physiological Medicine and Dentistry and the Foundation of Airway Health. Dr. Hindin has served on the Faculty, New York University College of Dentistry, Linhart Continuing Dental Education Program, Dental Sleep Medicine Continuum.

Jeffrey Hindin, DDS has developed an FDA cleared system of instrumentation to monitor Heart Rate Variability and Autonomic Nervous System balance and add a new level of understanding and care for patients with airway disorders in the medical or dental office. The HindexRV® system produces objective data on the physiological effects of altered jaw position, tooth positioning and other dental procedures.
